"Being who you are in 2013 in America is what America is about. It is not heroic to be who you are publicly," Breitbart.com editor Ben Shapiro said to Piers Morgan on the Thursday night broadcast of his nightly CNN show. "I'm glad for Jason Collins if he feels that he's going to live a happier life now. But it does not make you a hero to be who you are."
"You're British, and a lot of folks have said you should leave the country, because you're British. You come on here every night, and you speak in a British accent. That doesn't make you a hero, it makes you being who you are. I'm Jewish. I wear a yarmulke on TV," explained Shapiro. "I'm not a hero for wearing a yarmulke."
