Ben Shapiro addressed antifa, as well as which institution – Hollywood, academia, or the media – was most ideological, while speaking Sunday with Rob Shimshock on “The Shimshock Show.”


“If antifa didn’t exist, the alt-right would have nothing to push up against,” said Shapiro. “If the alt-right didn’t exist, antifa wouldn’t be able to call people like me alt-right, which is just absurd.”

The conservative commentator said that while antifa perpetrated the most violence, the media let the group be called “antifascists” and did not largely cover them.

Ben Shapiro argued that when analyzing society’s institutions, leftism is most prominent in academia, then Hollywood, and then the media. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Ben Shapiro Talks Berkeley, Campus Culture, And Political Correctness) 

“The university is the worst because you actually have professors actively promulgating a nasty politics that suggests that anyone who disagrees with them is a Nazi,” said the author. “Hollywood is bad because you have a bunch of ignoramuses who don’t know anything about politics and so reflect the dumb bumper sticker of what they see at the universities. And then the media is bad because they don’t even recognize their own bias while they’re doing all of these things.”
