Listen: California professor refuses to debate Ben Shapiro — but would like to fight him

In reference to one of Shapiro’s recent campus lectures, Chirino said, “I wish I’d have been there.

TheBlaze also reached out to UC-Merced Dean Elizabeth Dumont, Sociology Department Chair Paul Almeida, and Sociology Department Dean Elizabeth J. Whitt.

In the rant, Chirino referred to a recent New York Times profile that described Shapiro as a “gladiator,” as well as a recent fundraising effort for which UC-Merced students raised $40,000 to have Shapiro speak at the school.

Chirino holds a master’s degree in sociology and a doctorate in sociology, both from University of California, Irvine.

“Shapiro, [along with] all members of the UC-Merced College Republicans, were repeatedly called ‘white supremacists’ and ‘fascists’ during Fernando Chirino’s lecture,” Duran said.
