Never mind, I'm in a compromising mood today. Let's play.

To your question: 'If Shapiro is not still being banned from speaking at universities, why not?'

The answer to your question is apparently being kept secret for this institute.

Grand Canyon University will personally invite controversial conservative speaker Ben Shapiro to speak on campus, sidestepping the group that was trying to bring him to the school after communication with that group broke down Tuesday.

"We’re not going to work with this group any longer, but we will extend an invitation to Ben Shapiro directly," GCU President Brian Mueller told The Arizona Republic.

Furor over the university's Feb. 1 decision to cancel Shapiro's visit to GCU had mounted over the past few days. It's unclear whether Shapiro will accept the invitation once it's made.

High-profile conservativesand media personalities like Hugh Hewitt and Megyn Kelly had condemned the school's earlier decision and the university's justification for why Shapiro wasn't allowed to speak.

"We got tremendous amounts of negative publicity, which obviously nobody likes," Mueller said.

Prior to Mueller's announcement on Tuesday, the group that sought to bring Shapiro to campus said the school was prepared to work with them and reverse its decision but had backed off without explanation.

The GCU chapter of the Young America's Foundation, an organization for conservative youth that brings speakers to campuses, wanted Shapiro to appear at GCU. Representatives of the D.C.-based organization traveled to Phoenix Monday and met with Mueller and other campus administrators.

At that meeting, YAF representatives claim, GCU agreed to issue a joint statement affirming students' love of the university and setting a date for Shapiro to come to campus, according to an account published by Shapiro's website the Daily Wire.

Instead, after YAF sent a draft of the statement to GCU, the school returned the document withedits that appeared to place blame on the people who wanted Shapiro to speak.

The GCU-edited version included statements attributed to YAF saying the organization regretted not getting pre-approval from GCU for Shapiro's speech. And before YAF could respond to the changes, GCU shut down the discussion, according to the Daily Wire.

@ipxpert,
Several fairly rputable schools have entertained their body by having Shapiro. Like Stanford, (MIT i the Stanford of the East Coast).
Hearing hi bullahit i much better than banning him. Yull find many many shortcomings in facts in whatever he says. Ive heard him so many times and compare him to an erudite Sean Hannity.

@McGentrix,
Im firm believer in the old chestnut that states, we should give em the opportunity to present whatever hate speech and lies they can muster and present it in public so people can have the chance to evaluate wht these guys have to offer. At Stanford, he had a number of supporters, only thing is that there was a much larger group who thought he was just a wing nut wanker.

You're right. He's a loving, peaceful individual. Nope. He's not a monstrous hatemongerer.

Quote:
Shapiro teaches his white supremacist social media following that Black Americans are disproportionately locked up because of their culture; that people of Arab descent “like to bomb crap and live in open sewage”; that Palestinians need to be subjected to forced population transfer; and that transgender people are inherently “mentally ill.” Shapiro says his beliefs are rooted in facts, not feelings, but there’s not a single fact in sight — only clear and blinding white supremacy.


Quote:
By repeatedly inviting speakers who incite violence against some of Stanford’s most marginalized communities, the administration actively sends the message that only certain students, communities, and types of dialogue are valued on this campus.
