I hate the way the debate sponsors framed this whole thing. The resolution is "The future of Western politics is populist not liberal." Arguing for populism is a neo-nazi racist. And for liberalism, we have a neo-conservative war monger and all around right wing tool. For a real debate about this resolution, you might pit Bernie Sanders for the populists against Bill Clinton for the liberals. Or Alexandria Ocasio Cortez against David Brooks. Instead, the Munks chose to put a nazi up against a fairly hard conservative. What bullshit.
I'll go a step further and argue that of the two absolutely revolting monsters who were in this debate, when we look at what they've actually done rather than just what they've said, that David Frum is still responsible for way, way worse crap.
Next up. Munk debate:
Alien vs Preditor!
