If you, like me, peruse the political Internet, you surely read this week about a dramatic episode involving filmmaker and actor Mark Duplass and conservative writer Ben Shapiro.
In January 2017, Alexandre Bissonnette opened fire on a Quebec City mosque, killing half a dozen worshippers. Bissonnette held far-right, Islamophobic views. At trial, crown prosecutors presented evidence that he followed several right-wing and alt-right Twitter users, ranging from moderate voices like Fox’s Bret Baier to overt racists like Richard Spencer. But the Twitter account he visited the most was that of Daily Wire founder Ben Shapiro.
