Yesterday, for a Young America’s Foundation event, Ben Shapiro spoke to students at University of North Carolina Greensboro. Apparently Shapiro’s name is still quite a draw on college campuses!

If there’s one thing @yaf knows, it’s that students want to hear conservative ideas.

Conservatives — and the occasional openminded liberal — were thrilled to welcome Shapiro to campus. But, naturally, some students’ brains just aren’t equipped to listen to someone whose opinions might diverge from their own.

Moments like that and events like these are to be expected. And for the most part, they’re just boring. Tiresome. Same old song and dance.
But something happened last night that made this moment extra special for Shapiro and attendees:
Student who says he is a mathematician/physicist gets shut down by @benshapiro: "As a mathematician and physicist, what in the hell do you know about human biology that allows you to deny it?" pic.twitter.com/KtQti2z86u

Can we see that again?
I would be so embarrassed if this was my son, friend, or student. The belief that kids should go to college and rack up a ton of debt to emerge this ignorant is unsustainable. Kudos to @benshapiro for keeping his cool.pic.twitter.com/XLauzO1sYV

If we’d been in Ben Shapiro’s shoes, we’d’ve had to excuse ourselves due to suffering from uncontrollable fits of laughter. We are actually legit impressed that Shapiro managed to keep it together.

I’m not surprised that this “mathematician and physicist” who was just humiliated by @benshapiro won a prestigious award. That’s exactly the problem.
My gosh, what a moron. pic.twitter.com/2XFdPC1Ffg

We could watch that clip all day, man. Maybe we will.
This is, um … something else. https://t.co/53yGvrneF0

It’s something else, all right. Something spectacular.
That poor idiot brought a butter knife to an intellectual gunfight.
If this kid is really a mathematician and a physicist then America’s future is not in good hands. pic.twitter.com/DN6XldWca7

Well, all we can do is hope that America will end up in the hands of the sane people in that room.
Leftists learn conservatism is actually way more popular than their bizarre woke ideology. pic.twitter.com/pyBL9VME0P
