WATCH: Shapiro Confronts DePaul Admins Outside YAF Lecture
Young America’s Foundation’s live stream cameras captured a powerful exchange between Ben Shapiro and the DePaul administrators who were attempting to prevent him from stepping foot on campus Tuesday night.
After DePaul YAF announced Shapiro would be a guest speaker at their lecture with Christina Hoff Sommers, the school told the chapter Shapiro would not be allowed on campus.
He showed up anyway.
Watch the video to see Ben challenge the administrators’ free speech policies directly to their faces.
Immediately following the exchange, Shapiro Facetimed into Sommers’ lecture and invited everyone to follow him to a new venue where both he and Sommers delivered full lectures, forcefully voicing their support for free speech.
Young America’s Foundation was the sole national sponsor and organizer of the events at DePaul.
