Piers Morgan doesn’t usually get things right, but in a recent tweet he defended conservative Ben Shapiro from the snowflakes at Berkeley.
The college is very worried about Shapiro’s upcoming speech on their campus and has actually offered their students “counseling” to help them recover from the “trauma” of having a conservative speaker on campus.
Of course, they could just not go to his speech and then it’d be like it never happened…

Donald Trump Jr. was blown away that anyone would be bothered by a conservative speaking on campus.
He's going there to give a speech and they treat it like an incoming meteor. Sad that we have to "brace" for words these days. https://t.co/fFXOCc0f1S

Which is when the left wing Piers Morgan jumped in and agreed with Trump, Jr.

Not only is the situation in Berkeley “sad,” Morgan adds that it’s simply pathetic.
Shapiro happily noticed the support and tweeted his appreciation.

The reason Morgan is no fan of Shapiro, is because the two have met before in a debate about gun control. Sadly, for Morgan, it did not go well as Shapiro laid waste to Morgan’s arguments using facts, logic, and data.
Shapiro’s utter destruction of Morgan on gun control has become the stuff of Internet legend, which is no doubt why Morgan still finds him “annoying.”
The whining and the gnashing of teeth that takes place on college campuses whenever a conservative speaker gives his opinion is just ridiculous.
First, there is no need for any of the liberal students to hear a single word that the speaker says. Second, Ben Shapiro and other mainstream conservatives are not spewing hate, not defending bigotry, not calling for violence, and not giving an opinion that has ever been considered “extreme” (until now).
These are mainstream ideas being voiced by eloquent and intelligent people.
If leftists snowflakes believe that the opinions are wrong than they should offer an opposing view, not violence or tears.
