Violently intolerant transgender reporter now being investigated by police for assaulting Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro

by J. D. Heyes

(NaturalNews) The progressive political class, along with the purveyors of pop culture and mainstream societal engineers are constantly harping on the concept of "tolerance" for ideals, beliefs and lifestyles not shared by the vast majority of Americans. But for them it is never a two-way street.

The latest example involves a legal action filed by Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro, who claimed in court papers that Inside Edition reporter Zoey Tur, nee Robert Albert Tur, a transgender, assaulted him.

As the news site noted, Shapiro filed his action two mornings after he made an appearance on the "Dr. Drew" show and was verbally and physically accosted by Tur.

Shapiro was part of a panel discussion that included him as the sole conservative voice, the transgendered Tur, and four others who debated whether they believed Caitlyn (Bruce) Jenner deserved to receive ESPN's Arthur Ashe Courage Award for "coming out" as a transgender.

Shapiro was attempting to make the case that Jenner's biological make-up was that of a male, no matter how he/she "identified" himself/herself, and that offended Tur, once a man who now identifies as a woman. At that point, Tur grabs Shapiro's neck and shoulder area and says, "You cut that out now, or you'll go home in an ambulance."

Threats and intimidation are new weapons of terror used by the Left

Later, Shapiro alleged that Tur threatened him further after the appearance, saying, "I'll see you in the parking lot," and that CNN security officers had to escort Shapiro to his car after ensuring that Tur had left the property. Still later, Tur tweeted out that he agreed with someone else's tweet that Shapiro should be "curb stomped."

Curb-stomping was a practice made famous by American Nazi Skinheads. As Breitbart News reported: "Curb-stomping is a heinously violent street practice where the victim is forced to bite the corner of a cement street curb before the assailant stomps on the victims head."

Shapiro is Jewish.

The threats came after Shapiro said that referring to transgender people by their preferred sex, rather than their biological sex, is "mainstreaming delusion." Referring to Jenner, Shapiro said, "How he feels on the inside is irrelevant to the question of his biological self." Tur then accused Shapiro of knowing nothing about genetics, and the following exchange ensued:

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.'"

After some of the other panelists, particularly radio and "Chain Reaction" host Mike Catherwood, objected that Shapiro knew that what he said would be "insulting" and "inflammatory." Shapiro responded, "It's not a matter of insulting or inflammatory. It's a fact. You are a male. Dr. Drew is a male."

'Who is the fascist here?'

After filing his police report, Shapiro explained why.

"Just because the left has designated someone a member of the victim class does not mean that that person gets to infringe the rights of others," he said. "Until the left learns that, their aggression will not stop."

The senior editor-at-large also said that he had spoken with a detective the Los Angeles Police Department, and that he would be pursuing any possibility of charges regarding alleged criminal threats.

In today's America, it's not enough to just "accept" someone as they are. You must also voice your approval and keep any dissent to yourself, for if you don't, you are subject to ridicule, harassment and violence.

Who is the fascist here?
