Ben Shapiro is becoming persona non grata at American universities. A few days ago, DePaul University threatened to arrest him if he set foot on campus. But last night, during a talk at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Shapiro found the best way to respond to whining campus snowflakes.
The conservative commentator spoke at UW-Madison on free speech and safe spaces, despite raucous left-wing protesters who constantly interrupted him and even formed a human wall to block anyone from the audience from seeing him.
One protester shouted at Shapiro that he should be “wearing a swastika,” but Shapiro quickly quipped: “In case you hadn’t noticed, the folks with the swastikas aren’t too nice to my type,” alluding to the fact that he’s Jewish.
He continued: “Stop being self-indulgent children; stop pretending that everybody who voted for Trump is a vicious racist; it’s your right to protest, of course, but you just make yourself look like an idiot when you cry over a duly-held election … Donald Trump doesn’t care about your protest. Donald Trump is sitting somewhere in Trump Tower eating a steak and bathing in your salty, salty tears.”

Shapiro then summed up everyone’s attitude towards campus snowflakes by proudly showing his middle finger on stage:
