Right Wing Podcast Host Gets Roasted For Bizarre Baby Hitler Rant

If you were unfortunate enough to log into Twitter today, you might have noticed that the phrase “baby Hitler” was trending. Unfortunately, it was not about a baby with a Hitler mustache, but about Ben Shapiro going on an erratic rant at a pro-life rally. The conservative radio host and author who’s basically baby Rush Limbaugh was invited to speak at the March for Life in Washington D.C. today, and somehow the subject of baby Hitler came up.

“The argument, I guess here, is that would you kill baby Hitler?” Shapiro said. “And the truth is that no pro-life person on earth would kill baby Hitler, because baby Hitler wasn’t Hitler, adult Hitler was Hitler. Baby Hitler was a baby. What you presumably want to do with baby Hitler is take baby Hitler out of baby Hitler’s house and move baby Hitler into a better house where he would not grow up to be Hitler, right? That’s the idea.”

Was he involved in some kind of bet around the number of times he could say “baby Hitler” in the space of 60 seconds? We may never know.

The idea of traveling back in time and possibly killing baby Hitler is an age-old morality question typically discussed among philosophy majors who have had a little too much of the good stuff. But it also occasionally comes up during debates about abortion. Would you abort fetus Hitler even if you’re pro-life? Ben Shapiro wouldn’t.

Absurd and pointless hypotheticals aside, people are generally upset about the fact that Shapiro forced them to think about baby Hitler, and they’re making their displeasure known, mostly through jokes and pointing out Shapiro’s hypocrisy.

Alright, we’re all done. No more talking about baby Hitler for at least 10 years.
