Early life

Shapiro was born in Los Angeles, California. His family is Jewish, having emigrated from Russia and Lithuania. Shapiro developed talents in both violin and piano at a young age,[5] notably having performed at the Israeli Bonds Banquet in 1996 at twelve years of age.[6] Shapiro's parents both worked in Hollywood. His mother worked as an executive of a TV company and his father as a composer.[7]

Skipping two grades (third and ninth), Shapiro went from Walter Reed Middle School to Yeshiva University High School of Los Angeles where he graduated in 2000 at age 16.[8][3] He graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2004, at age 20, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science and then cum laude from Harvard Law School in 2007.[9] He then practiced law at Goodwin Procter. As of March 2012[update] he ran an independent legal consultancy firm, Benjamin Shapiro Legal Consulting, in Los Angeles.[3]

Career Shapiro speaking at the 2018 CPAC in National Harbor, Maryland As author

Shapiro became interested in politics at a young age. He started a nationally syndicated column when he was 17 and had written two books by age 21.[10]

In his 2004 book Brainwashed, Shapiro argues that students are not exposed to a variety of viewpoints at universities and that those who do not have strong opinions will be overwhelmed by an atmosphere dominated by liberal instructors even if discussion is encouraged in classrooms.[11]

In 2011, HarperCollins published Shapiro's fourth book, Primetime Propaganda The True Hollywood Story of How the Left Took Over Your TV, in which Shapiro argues that Hollywood has a left-wing agenda that it actively promotes through prime-time entertainment programming. In the book, the producers of Happy Days and M*A*S*H say they pursued a pro-pacifist, anti-Vietnam-War agenda in those series.[12] The same year Primetime Propaganda came out, Shapiro became a fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center.[13]

In 2013, Threshold Editions published Shapiro's fifth book, Bullies: How the Left's Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans.[14]

As a columnist

In 2012, Shapiro became editor-at-large of Breitbart News, the conservative website founded by Andrew Breitbart.[15] In March 2016, Shapiro resigned from his position as editor-at-large of Breitbart News following what he characterized as the website's lack of support for reporter Michelle Fields in response to her alleged assault by Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump's former campaign manager.[16][17] After Shapiro's departure, Breitbart published a piece saying "Ben Shapiro betrays loyal Breitbart readers in pursuit of Fox News contributorship", which Breitbart later deleted.[18]

On February 7, 2013, Shapiro published an article citing unspecified Senate sources who said that a group named "Friends of Hamas" was among foreign contributors to the political campaign of Chuck Hagel, a former U.S. Senator awaiting confirmation as Secretary of Defense as a nominee of President Barack Obama, but weeks later Slate reporter David Weigel reported there was no evidence such a group existed.[19] Shapiro told Weigel that the story he published was "the entirety of the information had."[20][21][22]

On October 7, 2013, Shapiro co-founded TruthRevolt, a U.S. media watchdog and activism website, in association with the David Horowitz Freedom Center. TruthRevolt ceased operations in March 2018.[23]

Podcasts and radio

In July 2015, Shapiro and transgender rights activist Zoey Tur were on Dr. Drew On Call to discuss Caitlyn Jenner's receipt of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.[24][25] After Shapiro repeatedly referred to Tur with male pronouns, Tur grabbed his neck and threatened on air to "send him home in an ambulance". Shapiro later filed a police report.[26][27][28]

Shapiro founded The Daily Wire on September 21, 2015. He is editor-in-chief as well as a host of his online political podcast The Ben Shapiro Show, broadcast every weekday.[29] As of November 2017, the podcast was downloaded 10 million times each month.[7] Westwood One began syndicating The Ben Shapiro Show to radio in 2018.[30] In 2018, Politico described the podcast as "massively popular".[31]

By 2016 he was one of the hosts for KRLA's "The Morning Answer", a conservative radio show. Internal emails showed that Shapiro faced pressure from Salem Media executives, the syndicate that owned the show, to be more supportive of Trump during the 2016 presidential election. Shapiro however remained highly critical of Trump throughout the election.[32]

Television host

In September 2018, Shapiro started hosting The Ben Shapiro Election Special on Fox News. The limited-run series covers news and issues relating to the 2018 midterm elections.[33]

Views Political ideology

The New Yorker, Haaretz and Vox have described Shapiro as "right-wing".[34][35][27] Shapiro's views have been described by The New York Times as "extremely conservative". He accuses contemporary liberals of creating an imaginary "hierarchy of victimhood" and glorifying perceived victims, leading to identity politics; The Times describes this as his central talking point.[7] He has argued in his books that the left has used its dominance of cinema and TV to push its agenda.[7]

In 2006, Shapiro called for sedition laws to be reinstated. He cited speeches critical of the Bush administration by Democrats Al Gore, John Kerry and Howard Dean as "disloyal" and seditious.[36][37] Shapiro later described President Barack Obama as a "philosophical fascist”.[35]

In September 2017, during an interview with Dan Harris of ABC's Nightline, Shapiro strongly criticized the Alt-Right movement, stating, "It is a garbage movement composed of garbage ideas. It has nothing to do with Constitutional Conservatism".[38]

Shapiro has called for lowering taxes on the very wealthy.[7] He has also backed privatizing social security, criminalizing abortion, and repealing the Affordable Care Act.[7] Shapiro has acknowledged that climate change is occurring, but questioned "what percentage of global warming is attributable to human activity".[39]

Israel and Palestine

According to Vox, Shapiro is a polarizing figure, in part due to statements such as "Israelis like to build. Arabs like to bomb crap and live in open sewage".[35]

In 2003, Shapiro published a column demanding that Israel “transfer the Palestinians and the Israeli-Arabs from Judea, Samaria, Gaza and Israel proper.” Citing precedents from World War II, Shapiro insisted that, “expelling a hostile population is a commonly used and generally effective way of preventing violent entanglements". During the same article, Shapiro asserted that "The ideology of the Palestinian population is indistinguishable from that of the terrorist leadership."[40] Jeffrey Goldberg was highly critical of these comments and cited them as an example of Shapiro's "fascist" behaviour.[41][42] Shapiro later reversed his view on the West Bank issue, saying it was "both inhumane and impractical."[43]

In 2007, Shapiro argued that “the Palestinian Arab population is rotten to the core” and that asserted that because “an entire population corrupted by bloodthirsty anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism,” punishing Palestinian leaders is insufficient: “Collective choices require collective treatment”.[40]

In December 2017, Shapiro supported the decision of President Trump to inaugurate the new American embassy in Jerusalem.[44]

Gun ownership

Writing in October 2017, in the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting, Shapiro argued that "banning all guns would be unwise as well as immoral", but that "we must balance the need and right to firearms with public policy concerns, including the risk that a machine gun will be used in public". Shapiro suggested that policy makers "should look at ways of enforcing federal laws banning the sale of guns to the mentally ill".[45]

Legacy of slavery

Shapiro has argued that African-Americans were historically victims of injustice in the United States but that they are not victims of widespread systemic injustice today.[7] Shapiro has dismissed the idea that the United States was founded on slavery and has asserted America "was founded in spite of slavery".[46] In 2017, Shapiro argued that "The idea that black people in the United States are disproportionately poor because America is racist; that’s just not true".[47] Writing in the aftermath of the Charleston church shooting, Shapiro argued that "the flag should not be displayed on state grounds, but is perfectly appropriate for display at war memorials".[48]

2016 election

Shapiro supported Ted Cruz in the 2016 presidential election and openly rejected Donald Trump's candidacy.[49] Shapiro has suggested that the election of Donald Trump was more a vote against liberals, and Hillary Clinton in particular, than a vote in favor of Trump's brand of conservatism.[7]


Shapiro has been critical of transgenderism and transitioning. At a college in Michigan in the midst of contentious dialogue about transgenderism with a woman in the audience Shapiro asked her how old she was. She replied that she was 22 years old. Shapiro then asked her "Why aren't you 60? What is the problem with you identifying as 60?" After some further dialogue Shapiro stated that "You can’t magically change your gender. You can’t magically change your sex. You can’t magically change your age."[7] During an interview with Dan Harris of ABC's Nightline in September 2017, Shapiro said that those who are transgender have a mental disorder.[38][50]


In 2018, Shapiro asserted that Facebook was targeting conservative sites after Facebook implemented an algorithm change, limiting their traffic.[51] However, some conservative sites saw an increase in traffic whereas both some conservative sites and liberal sites saw declines.[51]

Campus lectures

Shapiro frequently speaks at a number of college campuses across the United States, often to present his conservative viewpoint on more controversial subjects. He spoke at 37 campuses between early 2016 and late 2017.[7]

California State University, Los Angeles

Some students and faculty members at California State University, Los Angeles objected to a speech that Shapiro, who was then an editor at Breitbart News, was scheduled to hold at the university on February 25, 2016, titled "When Diversity Becomes a Problem". The speech was hosted by the campus chapter of the conservative group Young Americans for Freedom. University president William Covino cancelled the speech three days before it was to take place, with the intention of rescheduling it so that the event could feature various viewpoints on the subject of campus diversity. Covino ultimately reversed his decision, allowing the speech to go on as planned.[52][53]

The day of the speech, hundreds of student protesters formed human chains, blocking the doors to the event, and staging sit-in protests. When Shapiro began his speech, a protestor pulled the fire alarm. After the speech ended, Shapiro was escorted out by campus police.[54] Three months after the CSULA incident, Young America's Foundation announced it was filing a lawsuit against the university (with Shapiro as one of the plaintiffs), claiming that the First and Fourteenth Amendment rights of the students were violated by Covino's attempted cancellation of the event, as well as the physical barricading of students from entering or leaving the event.[55]

University of California, Berkeley Main article: 2017 Berkeley protests § September

On September 14, 2017, Shapiro gave a speech at the invitation of the UC (Berkeley) student organization Berkeley College Republicans where he criticized identity politics.[56][57] The event involved a large police presence which had been promised by Berkeley Chancellor Carol T. Christ in her August letter that supported free speech. Together, the University and the city of Berkeley spent $600,000 on police and security for the event, which transpired with nine arrests but no major incidents.[58][59][60]

Target of antisemitism

After leaving Breitbart News, Shapiro was a frequent target of anti-Semitic rhetoric from the alt-right.[61] According to a 2016 analysis by the Anti-Defamation League, Shapiro was, among journalists, the most frequent target of anti-Semitic tweets.[62][63]

Personal life

Shapiro has three sisters. In 2008, he married Mor Toledano, an Israeli citizen of Moroccan descent.[64] Shapiro and his wife practice Orthodox Judaism.[65][66] She is a doctor.[67] Together, they have a daughter, born in 2014,[68] and a son, born in 2016.[69]

The Right Side of History: How Reason and Moral Purpose Made the West Great
The Right Side of History: How Reason and Moral Purpose Made the West Great
America has a God-shaped hole in its heart, argues New York Times bestselling author Ben Shapiro, and we shouldn't fill it with politics and hate.In 2016, Ben Shapiro spoke at UC Berkeley. Hundreds of police officers were required from 10 UC campuses across the state to protect his speech, which was -- ironically -- about the necessity for free speech and rational debate. He came to argue that Western Civilization is in the midst of a crisis of purpose and ideas. Our freedoms are built upon the twin notions that every human being is made in God’s image and that human beings were created with reason capable of exploring God’s world. We can thank these values for the birth of science, the dream of progress, human rights, prosperity, peace, and artistic beauty. Jerusalem and Athens built America, ended slavery, defeated the Nazis and the Communists, lifted billions from poverty and gave billions spiritual purpose. Jerusalem and Athens were the foundations of the Magna Carta and the Treaty of Westphalia; they were the foundations of Declaration of Independence, Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, and Martin Luther King Jr.’s Letter from Birmingham Jail.Civilizations that rejected Jerusalem and Athens have collapsed into dust. The USSR rejected Judeo-Christian values and Greek natural law, substituting a new utopian vision of “social justice” – and they starved and slaughtered tens of millions of human beings. The Nazis rejected Judeo-Christian values and Greek natural law, and they shoved children into gas chambers. Venezuela rejects Judeo-Christian values and Greek natural law, and citizens of their oil-rich nation have been reduced to eating dogs.  We are in the process of abandoning Judeo-Christian values and Greek natural law, favoring instead moral subjectivism and the rule of passion. And we are watching our civilization collapse into age-old tribalism, individualistic hedonism, and moral subjectivism. We believe we can reject Judeo-Christian values and Greek natural law and satisfy ourselves with intersectionality, or scientific materialism, or progressive politics, or authoritarian governance, or nationalistic solidarity. We can’t.The West is special, and in The Right Side of History, Ben Shapiro bravely explains that it’s because too many of us have lost sight of the moral purpose that drives us each to be better, or the sacred duty to work together for the greater good, or both. A stark warning, and a call to spiritual arms, this book may be the first step in getting our civilization back on track.

Bullies: How the Left's Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans
Bullies: How the Left's Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans
In this galvanizing and alarming New York Times bestseller, “Ben Shapiro shows once and for all that the left is the single greatest source of bullying in modern American life” (Sean Hannity).While President Obama and the left like to pretend that they oppose bullying with all their hearts and souls, the truth is far darker: the left is the greatest purveyor of bullying in modern American history. Bullying has morphed into the left’s go-to tactic, as they attempt to quash their opponents through fear, threat of force, violence, and rhetorical intimidation on every major issue facing America today. In Bullies, Ben Shapiro uncovers the simple strategy used by liberals and their friends in the media: bully the living hell out of conservatives. Play the race card, the class card, the sexism card. Use any and every means at your disposal to demonize your opposition—to shut them up. Then pretend that such bullying is justified, because, after all, conservatives are the true bullies, and need to be taught a lesson for their intolerance. Hidden beneath the left’s supposed hatred of bullying lies a passionate love of its vulgar tactics. Dubbed by Glenn Beck “a warrior for conservatism, against those who use fear and intimidation to stifle honest debate­­,” Shapiro takes on the leftist bullies—the most despicable people in America. By exposing their hypocrisy, he offers conservatives a reality check in the face of what has become the gravest threat to American liberty: the left’s single-minded focus on ending political debate through bully tactics.

Brainwashed: How Universities Indoctrinate America's Youth
Brainwashed is the explosive exposé of the leftist agenda at work in today's colleges, revealed by firebrand Ben Shapiro, a recent UCLA gratudate, syndicated columnist, and one of today's most exciting new conservative voices, who's been on the front lines of the battle for America's young minds. This book proves once and for all that so-called higher education continues to sink lower and lower into the depths of liberal madness as close-minded professors turn their students into socialists, atheists, race-baiters, and sex-crazed narcissists."Ben Shapiro's writing is smart, informative, and incisive.  He is wise byond his years without losing the refreshing fearlessness of youth." ?Ann Coulter, best-selling author of High Crimes and Misdeameanors, Slander, and Treason"In Brainwashed, Shapiro tells the truth?that universities are forums of left-liberal indoctrination, where dissent is discouraged and penalized, with more restrictions on free speech rather any other part of American society. Parents who are paying for tutition might want to take note, and see what their hard-earned money is paying for." ?Michael Barone, U.S. News & World report and co-author of The Almanac of American Politics"Welcome to P.C. 101. In ths trenchant insider's expose, Ben Shapiro bears witness to the modern American campus freak show. You'll get up close and personal with the Marxist loons, moral relativists, multicultural zealots, and American-haters who are corrupting young minds.

How to Debate Leftists and Destroy Them: 11 Rules for Winning the Argument
How to Debate Leftists and Destroy Them: 11 Rules for Winning the Argument
The problem, as Ben Shapiro puts it in this must-read, is that “because conservatives don’t think about how to win that they constantly lose” in confrontations with leftists. The solution is to stop taking the bullying and learning to argue for victory.Among Shapiro’s rules for beating the left in confrontations are: Be willing to take a punch. (conservatives tend to shy away from confrontations because the left is rhetorically violent; but it is important “to walk toward the fire.” ) Hit hard, hit first. (leftists stage muggings; instead of fighting by Marquis of Queensberry rules, conservatives need to accept the strategy Mike Tyson: “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.”) Immediately frame the debate. (“When you’re discussing global warming , for example, the proper question is not whether man is causing global warming but whether man can fix global warming—a question to which the universally acknowledged answer is no unless we are willing to revert to the pre industrial age.”) There are eight more rules that will allow a conservative to debate a leftist and destroy him. How to Debate Leftists and Destroy Them is not just a “how to” book. It is a survival manual.

Primetime Propaganda: The True Hollywood Story of How the Left Took Over Your TV
Primetime Propaganda: The True Hollywood Story of How the Left Took Over Your TV
“Vitally important, devastatingly thorough, and shockingly revealing…. After reading Primetime Propaganda, you’ll never watch TV the same way again.”—Mark LevinMovie critic Michael Medved calls Ben Shapiro, “One of our most refreshing and insightful voices on the popular culture, as well as a conscience for his much-maligned generation.” With Primetime Propaganda, the syndicated columnist and bestselling author of Brainwashed, Porn Generation, and Project President tells the shocking true story of how the most powerful medium of mass communication in human history became a vehicle for spreading the radical agenda of the left side of the political spectrum. Similar to what Bernard Goldberg’s Bias and A Slobbering Love Affair did for the liberal news machine, Shapiro’s Primetime Propaganda is an essential exposé of corrupting media bias, pulling back the curtain on widespread and unrepentant abuses of the Hollywood entertainment industry.

The People vs. Barack Obama: The Criminal Case Against the Obama Administration
The People vs. Barack Obama: The Criminal Case Against the Obama Administration
Now in paperback, New York Times bestselling author Ben Shapiro presents a comprehensive case against Barack Obama’s abuses of power during his time in office.From the DOJ to the NSA, from the EPA to the Department of Health and Human Services, Barack Obama’s administration has become a labyrinth of corruption and overreach touching every aspect of Americans’ lives. The People vs. Barack Obama strips away the soft media picture of the Obama administration to reveal a regime motivated by pure, unbridled power and details how each scandal has led to dozens of instances of as-yet-unprosecuted counts of espionage, involuntary manslaughter, violation of internal revenue laws, bribery, and obstruction of justice. The story of the Obama administration is a story of abuse, corruption, and venality on the broadest scale ever to spring from the office of the presidency. President Obama may be the culmination of a century of government growth—but more important, he is the apotheosis of the imperial presidency. Obama chooses when to enforce immigration laws, delays his own Obamacare proposals when it is politically convenient to do so, micromanages the economy, attacks the Supreme Court, Congress, and the sovereign states. And he proclaims that he alone is the voice of the people while encroaching on their rights. In The People vs. Barack Obama, Ben Shapiro brings Obama into the people’s court and addresses each of his abuses of power.
