During Ben Shapiro most recent appearance with Bill Maher on Real-Time, conservative pundit Ben Shapiro was left upset
when fellow guest and counterterrorism specialist Malcolm Nance schooled him on authoritarianism.
Nance said it’s a “great title” for Shapiro’s forthcoming book The Authoritarian Moment, which claims
that the left “weaponized America’s institutions against dissent,” and that those who assume the author is
talking about “actual authoritarianism” maybe “ensnared” into paying the $28.99 retail price.
“However, let us speak about the facts as they are.
You’re talking about a guy, Donald Trump, who tried to suborn – or has probably suborned – perjury in
order to overthrow a duly elected government and
managed to mobilize 40thousand people to lay siege to the Capitol, with thousand or more entering the
building and destroying parts of the building, and fighting physically [with] law enforcement there, all in
the name of putting an end to American democracy.

And, of course, there was a resurgence of this great clip:
It wasn’t Shapiro’s only “embarrassing” incident on Real-Time, however.
During a discussion on critical race theory, Nance claimed that the language had been “hijacked,” arguing
that race is a social construct and that “the law and legal institutions in the United States are
fundamentally racist,” according to Britannica.
[It] has been hijacked and framed around the left because they want to do all of this, tear apart America’s the whole social fabric, and hold us responsible for everything.
“I want you to know about history.
I had a number of individuals in the military, senior commanders who had to make life-or-death choices, who were complete idiots when it came to the cultures and institutionsof the nations,
we were entering, and people died as a result. He said, “I don’t need it here.”
“If we agree that history should be taught, why are you
supporting critical race theory, which is not history?” Shapiro said.
Nance replied, “Didn’t I just state a minute ago that I believe that word has been hijacked and that’s not
what we’re talking about?”
Following Shapiro’s accusation that the author was defending the idea by “redefining it as simply teaching
history,” which he termed a “cheap semantic trick,” Nance said, “Is this what you do on your program
because it sucks.”
“Malcolm, I appreciate it, but I shall console myself lying on my bed made of money,” Shapiro said, clearly
agitated by the remark.
