Does anybody understand how Ben Shapiro is a thing? I assume he's paying YouTube and/or gaming the algorithm to show up on my "up next" list, but the sheer volume of references to his smarmy little face on a platform as diverse as YouTube is still strange.

Learned of this guy via my daughter's ex-BF. HE was a 24 year old white college educated dude. Not a dummy, but not smart either, and definitely lacking in experience, historical perspective past what he heard of Bill Clinton

In his head he has to know his racism and Trump-loving rationalization is wrong, but as a semi-smart racist, he has to hang it on the most intellectual-sounding [expletive] racist he can find.

It's kind of astroturf. At least the web sites that push him are funded by rich right-wingers. Then they also obviously have a pretty big network of social media accounts that also push him and spread his content.
