Shapiro reacts to Jussie Smollett’s NAACP award nomination


♪ ♪>>HE SAID HE WAS ATTACKED BY MAGA COUNTRY. THAT IS AN EMBARRASSMENT, NOT ONLY TO CHICAGO, THAT IS AN EMBARRASSMENT TO OUR COUNTRY.>>Martha: LAST NIGHT IN MICHIGAN, PRESIDENT TRUMP WEIGHING IN ON THE JUSSIE SMOLLETT SAGA, SAYING THE FBI AND DOJ WILL “REVIEW” WITHE THE CASE WAS DROPPED. WHY SOME LAWMAKERS ACCUSED HIM OF BEING A RACIST, THE CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS SAYING “IT ONLY SIGNALS HIS COMPLICITY. WHERE WAS HIS CALL FOR AN INVESTIGATION WHEN WHITE NATIONALISTS MARCHED ACROSS THE CAMPUS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA?” CHICAGO MAYOR RAHM EMANUEL SLAMMING THE PRESIDENT, CLAIMING HE IS THE REASON THAT SMOLLETT ALLEGEDLY FAKED HIS HATE CRIME.>>LET ME BE REALLY CLEAR ABOUT SOMETHING. THE ONLY REASON JUSSIE SMOLLETT THOUGHT HE COULD TAKE ADVANTAGE OF A HOAX AROUND THE HATE CRIME IS THE TOXIC ENVIRONMENT THAT DONALD TRUMP CREATED PAIRED>>Martha: HERE NOW, BEN SHAPIRO, EDITOR IN CHIEF OF “THE DAILY WIRE” AND AUTHOR OF THE BOOK “THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY,” A NUMBER ONE “NEW YORK TIMES” BEST SELLER. CONGRATULATIONS ON THE NEW BOOK, GOOD TO SEE YOU TONIGHT.>>GREAT TO SEE YOU TOO.>>Martha: WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THE WOMAN FROM THE CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS AND RAHM EMANUEL SAYING THIS KIND OF THING, THIS JUSSIE SMOLLETT THING, WOULDN’T BE HAPPENING IF IT WEREN’T FOR THE TENSIONS THAT EXIST IN THIS COUNTRY THANKS TO PRESIDENT TRUMP?>>THAT’S OBVIOUSLY UNTRUE. WE HAVE SEEN RACIAL HOAXES BEFORE, GOING BACK TO AL SHARPTON IN THE 1980s. THE STORY AS THERE IS AN ACTOR WHO WANTED TO INCREASE HIS PAY ACCORDING TO THE CHICAGO POLICE DEPARTMENT, AND SO HE DECIDED TO PERPETUATE A RACIAL HOAX WITH HALF THE COUNTRY IN THE PROCESS BELIEVING IT WOULD MAKE A MORE POPULAR AND MARKETABLE, PARTICULARLY WITH HOLLYWOOD BEARD HE DIDN’T MIND IF HE SLANDERED THE CHICAGO POLICE DEPARTMENT, RAHM EMANUEL, THE CITY OF CHICAGO. REPRESENTATIVE SAYING THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP DIDN’T INVESTIGATE CHARLOTTESVILLE, THAT’S NOT TRUE, THE DO DATE THE DOJ DID AN INVESTIGATION.>>Martha: HOSTING NAACP AWARDS COMMAND AT THAT CEREMONY, PREVIOUSLY NOMINATED JUSSIE SMOLLETT FOR AN AWARD YOU’RE HERE’S WHAT THEY SAID ABOUT THAT.>>I HOPE HE WINS. I’M HAPPY FOR HIM. THAT THE SYSTEM WORKED FOR HIM, IN HIS FAVOR. BECAUSE THE SYSTEM ISN’T ALWAYS FAIR. ESPECIALLY FOR PEOPLE OF COLOR. TO BE ON ITS INTEREST IN, HE WORKED FOR HIM COME IN HIS FAVOR, BECAUSE THE SYSTEM IS AND ALWAYS FARED. THERE ARE A LOT OF WAYS TO READ INTO THAT STATEMENT.>>IT SOUNDS LIKE HE SANG INTO VIVID SOCIAL JUSTICE SHOULD TRUMP INDIVIDUAL JUSTICE. JUSSIE SMOLLETT HAPPY TO BE BLACK AND GAY. ACCORDING TO THE PROSECUTOR’S OFFICE THAT DeMENT DISMISS THE CHARGES, HE IS GUILTY, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS PAYBACK FOR THE SYSTEM NOT WORKING FOR OTHER PEOPLE. THAT IS A FUNDAMENTAL VIOLATION OF JUSTICE, THEY SHOULD DO THE TIME IF THEY DO THE CRIME.>>Martha: HE IS SAYING HE WAS A VICTIM OF A HATE CRIME, SO I WANT TO KNOW WHY HE IS NOT PRESSING FOR AN INVESTIGATION INTO WHAT HAPPENED. HIS LAWYERS THAT IT’S POSSIBLE THAT THE BROTHERS THAT WE SAW MORE MAY BE WEARING WHITE FACE UNDERNEATH THE MASK THAT LED JUSSIE SMOLLETT TO THINK IT WAS A WHITE PERSON ASSAULTING HIM. I MEAN, IT GETS CRAZIER.>>MY THEORY OF THE CRIME AS IT WAS ACTUALLY VIRGINIA GOVERNOR RALPH NORTHAM DRESSED IN WHITE FACE OVER BLACKFACE. THAT’S MY THEORY. WE ARE MOVING ALONG, “THE ECONOMIST” CAME AFTER YOU, TALKING ABOUT YOUR BOOK, THEY DID AN INTERVIEW WITH YOU ON THE BOOK, WHICH TALKS A LOT ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE COUNTRY COME ABOUT JUDEO-CHRISTIAN VALUES AND GREEK TRADITION, AND SUBJECTIVISM AND INDIVIDUALISM, AND BASICALLY THE DEGRADING OF WESTERN SOCIETY AND THE SOCIAL AND POLITICAL FABRIC OF THE COUNTRY, VERY INTERESTING. DIGGING INTO WHAT YOUR BOOK IS ABOUT. BUT THEY CALLED YOU THE ALT-RIGHT SAGE WITHOUT THE RAGE, AND THEN THEY WENT BACK AND CHANGED IT TO “INSIDE THE MIND OF BEN SHAPIRO, A RADICAL CONSERVATIVE.” WHAT THEY YOU?>>THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A REGULAR CONSERVATIVE. IT’S LIKE BETO O’ROURKE, I’M RAD, DUDE. WITH AMAZING ABOUT IT, TO BE IGNORANT ENOUGH TO CALL ME A MEMBER OF THE ALT-RIGHT WHEN I’VE BEEN THE LEADING ANTAGONIST OF THE ALT-RIGHT, THEIR NUMBER ONE TARGET ONLINE ACCORDING TO THE ADL, I DO HIRE SECURITY TO WALKING BACK AND FORTH TO THE SYNAGOGUE BECAUSE OF THE ALT-RIGHT. TO LABEL ME THAT, IT’S THE IGNORANCE OR THE MALICE OF THE MEMBERS OF THE MEDIA WHO DON’T WANT TO DO A SIMPLE GOOGLE SEARCH.>>Martha: THERE IS DEFINITELY A FASCINATION WITH YOU, WHEN YOU READ THIS ARTICLE, TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY ARE YOU ARE POPULAR, WHY DO KIDS ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES CARE WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY, HOW YOU ARE IMPECCABLY DRESSED AND SHARP IN EVERY WAY.>>OBVIOUSLY IT IS BECAUSE OF MY HANDSOMENESS AND PHYSICAL SIZE, AND VERY INTIMIDATING, AND PEOPLE ARE ATTRACTED TO ME THE SAME WAY THEY WOULD TO TOM CRUISE, IT IS JUST WHO I AM. THAT’S WHAT MY WIFE TELLS ME, ANYWAY.>>Martha: AS SHE SHOULD. ERIC HOLDER SAID, I WISH WE COULD GO BACK — THE PRESIDENT WANTS TO GO BACK TO WHEN AMERICA WAS GREAT, AND HE SEES THAT AS A RACIST ASSESSMENT IN THE PRESIDENT TSAI’S. YOU TALK ABOUT THE IDEA OF WHAT MAKES AMERICA GREAT IN YOUR BOOK. WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO HIM ABOUT THAT COMMENT?>>THERE ARE TWO VIEWS OF THE UNITED STATES, VIEW NUMBER ONE IS THE UNITED STATES IS ETERNALLY TRUE AND IMMUTABLE AND GOOD PRINCIPLES. WE HAVEN’T ALWAYS LIVED UP TO THOSE PRINCIPLES, BUT THE FOUNDATIONAL PHILOSOPHY OF THE COUNTRY IS INHERENTLY GOOD AND ROOTED IN HUMAN NATURE AND NATURAL LAW AND GOD’S CREATION. THAT IS WHAT AMERICAN PHILOSOPHY IS ABOUT. IT’S A JOB TRYING TO EXPAND THAT PROMISE TO ALL AMERICANS. AND THEN THERE IS THE VIEW OF ERIC HOLDER, THAT IT WAS FOUNDED ON RACIAL HIERARCHY AND ALL OF THESE IDEAS OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION ARE ESSENTIALLY A FACADE IN FAVOR OF PERPETUATING THE EVIL POWER HIERARCHY. IF YOU FEEL THAT WAY, YOU HAVE TO RIP UP AMERICAN CIVILIZATION AT ITS ROOTS. I DON’T THINK MOST AMERICANS BELIEVE THAT. I THINK MOST AMERICANS BELIEVE AMERICA HAS BEEN GREAT IN THE PAST, NO POINT AT WHICH AMERICA WAS BETTER ACROSS THE BOARD FOR EVERYBODY GOOD WAS AMERICA NOT GREAT WHEN WE LIBERATED EUROPE? WHEN MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. WAS SPEAKING IN WASHINGTON? WHEN WE WERE DEFEATING THE SOVIET UNION IN THE COLD WAR OR CREATING PROSPERITY FOR 80s 8 CREATING PROSPERITY FOR 80s %
