BEN SHAPIRO (HOST): The left doesn't believe in free speech. They believe that free speech, the principle, does not exist. Underneath that is a power dynamic. And the power dynamic suggests that if you're allowed to talk, then you will dominate. So we have to shut you up. It's important that we shut you up. Dialogue is a lie. The only thing that really matters is the compulsory power of whatever institution is in charge. And that's what you see at places like Twitter, which will just randomly silence somebody a week after they tweeted something without any real excuse. 


Meanwhile this movement, this broad ideological movement, is pushing transition of children, which is pagan sacrifice of children to the god Moloch. That is all that is. When you are talking about transitioning small children, socially transitioning four, five, six year-olds, to the celebration of some weak-kneed, even on the right -- when you are talking about that as fundamental American government policy, we have left the realm of reality behind. We have left the realm of decency behind.
