Outspoken columnist and radio host, Ben Shapiro has filed a police report following a threat from Transgender reporter Zoey “Robert” Tur.
Tur’s threats against Shapiro followed Shapiro arguing that referring to transgender people by their preferred instead of biological sex is “mainstreaming delusion.” Of Jenner, Shapiro declared, “How he feels on the inside is irrelevant to the question of his biological self.” After Tur suggested that Shapiro knew nothing about genetics, the following exchange then occurred:
Shapiro asked if the discussion was supposed to be on genetics and asked, “What are your genetics, sir?” Pinsky said to Tur, “I’d stay away from the genetics and back to the brain scans.”
Tur then said to Shapiro, “You cut that out now, or you’ll go home in an ambulance.” Shapiro responded, “That seems mildly inappropriate for a political discussion.” Oduolowu said that, to be fair, Shapiro was being rude, to which Shapiro answered, “I’m sorry, it’s not rude to say that someone who’s biologically a male is a male.” Tur stated, “You just called me a ‘sir.’”

In a perfect world, Shapiro would have responded, “If you don’t take your hands off me, we are both gonna be some ambulance riding Mo Fo’s!” Hey, I can wish can’t I?
Shapiro’s response was exactly correct, although I wish he had demanded a police officer on site immediately. Robert Tur is a bully (as is so much of the Left), and should be taught a lesson. Shapiro pointed out the inapporpriatness of Tur’s behavior and then later filed charges. Tur committed an assault by threatening him and a battery because he put his hands on him. Tur should be arrested and charged!
But let’s be clear on what really happened. Tur is a bully and saw a smaller man and was only then emboldened to issue threats. I am fairly certain that had I – all six foot two 230 pounds – been sitting there, Robert Tur would NOT have put his hands on me, nor would he have threatened to fight me. Sure, he may have cut his eyes, pouted, even sold a wolf ticket or two, but all of that bravado would have been left in his head, where, by the way, it rightly belongs.
Tur or the hosts may not have liked what Shapiro had to say, or the way he said it, but they invited him on the program for a reason and that reason wasn’t because Ben Shapiro pulls punches.
