Ben Shapiro was a voice of sanity in the totally insane year of 2020. As he sees it, crises exacerbate underlying issues; they rarely create them. The global pandemic was the first in a catastrophic chain of crises that brought everything that’s wrong with America to a head. What began as a national emergency devolved into pandemic politics, with lockdowns as a cover for government power grabs. Following the George Floyd protests, Democrats began to manipulate charges of racism to achieve and maintain a hold on the country. When Joe Biden was elected, woke culture cried victory, but record-breaking millions of Trump voters proved that America still rejects demographics as destiny.
This collection of syndicated columns from 2020 is for diehard Shapiro fans—and anyone who wants to talk some sense into America.
