College Republicans To Host Diversity Lecture By Political Commentator Ben Shapiro

College Republicans will host a lecture by political commentator Ben Shapiro on Wednesday entitled, “When Diversity Becomes a Problem: The Fascist Nature of Liberalism.” The event is open to the public and will be held at 8 p.m. in 121 Sparks.

Shapiro’s lecture is sponsored by the University Park Allocation Committee and Young America Foundation. On Wednesday, he will speak on first amendment rights and address why they are impeded on many college campuses.

Shapiro is an author, radio talk show host, and attorney. He has published six books critiquing leftist political theories, and spent four years as editor-at-large of Breitbart before he stepped down in March. Shapiro is also the editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire.

In a campus lecture held at the University of Missouri, Shapiro expressed criticism of the Black Lives Matter movement, safe spaces, and microaggressions.

Shapiro was also invited to speak at the California State University, Los Angeles in February. University President William Covino attempted to cancel the lecture after an outburst of opposition via social media, but ultimately allowed the speech to occur after Shapiro indicated that he would attend and present his speech regardless.

No matter your political leanings, Shapiro’s lecture is sure to prove thought-provoking.
