Stephen Crowder has a popular YouTube channel with over 3.5 million subscribers. He blends comedy with politics and has a popular segment called ‘Change My Mind’.

Katie Hopkins is UK based and is a regular guest on various chat shows and news segments. Her tongue is sharp with an equal amount of wit and sass.

The Amazing Lucas is an African American YouTuber who discusses topical issues is light and thoughtful manner.

Lauren Sourhern is a Canadian pundit who’s transitioning her fame to documentaries. Her Farmlands doc about South African farmers has garnered attention to their plight otherwise ignored by mainstream media.

Owen Shroyer is a freelance journalist who mostly attends public protests to challenge the mob mentality. Armed with facts, a mic, and intelligence is enough to debase any argument.

Candice Owens burst onto the scene not long ago and has become a star within the Republican Party. Look for her new PragerU show on March 3rd!

Dave Rubin is a gay host of his own show and a former pundit from TYT. Let’s just say he didn’t leave on good terms. Also doesn’t consider himself a Republican, but is a supporter of the president and critical of the media.

Tucker Carlson is a Fox News host with his own highly rated show. His ‘duh face’ is legendary.

Ann Coulter is a NYT best selling author who has written many books and is a regular on various highly rated talk shows.

Ben Shapiro is an incredibly intelligent conservative who is often invited to talk on various American pundit shows and tours many college campuses. Noted king of the last word.

I haven't seen or heard one that doesn't come off like a whiny tool, tbh. These are not people to listen to, respect, or otherwise take seriously.

People want to cite Trump or Obama as divisive; but really, it's these assholes.

@mrbojangles25: So who is your favourite right wing pundit? Or do you simply not agree with them at all and are on that ‘other side’?

People like Rich Lowery. He has an actual grip on reality, has his own principals and doesn’t cave immediately when those principles and trump are at odds. He’s also very articulate and good at actually explaining his position.

I still don’t agree with him on many things, but when he talks I can at least see how a human being came to a conservative position on a topic instead of some subhuman trash heap.

I’ve heard or watched most of the other people on this list. Most of them come across as whiny entitled imbeciles who live in a bubble, or gleefully spit out provably false information and/or conspiracy theories. One of my favorites is still Ann Coulter trying to explain what evolution is and why it’s wrong

Ann Coulter for the lulz. She's untouchable from Don, seeing as she called him an idiot and that weak willed conman didn't have the balls to hit back at her.

I can't think of any major political topic in which the right wing has anything meaningful to add. Presented with any serious issue they'll either deny it's a problem or underplay it and pretend it can't be fixed.

@Sevenizz Wrong forum to ask about anyone who is not democrat or on the left side.

Also, you have someone who is not "right-winged" Rubin is a former host on TYT who is a hardcore libertarian with some moderate Republican views Also Crowder is a provocateur who lives of being a provocateur

Normally I wouldn't, but Ann Coulter helped push Trump to take on an unwinnable political battle that hurt his numbers, so I'm kind of leaning towards her. I mean, they're all pretty terrible people, but if you're going to get the president to hurt his own cause then you kind of fall under "The enemy of my enemy" category.

@Jacanuk: I said Right ‘leaning’ Rubin being a libertarian would fit into that category.

Crowder may be a provocateur (who up there isn’t?), but he definitely leans Right.

There are VERY few pundits I like, most of them are preaching ideologues with nothing useful to say.

I like Thunderf00t because he doesnt seem particularly biased, and isnt too interested in pushing forth any particular narrative. Instead just criticizing those who do, and are intellectually dishonest about it. If you are willing to call Thunderf00t right wing. Then I guess him.

Right-leaning indicates certain viewpoints who is not part of Rubins political views, sure libertarians can lean right but Rubin is a left-leaning libertarian who is closer to the centre than most Democrats.

But it could also just be the company you have him in that makes it seem wrong.

As to Crowder, well I don´t think anyone actually knows where he really is political, his views at least on youtube are made to provoke , I saw a few "change my mind" and the time he got destroyed by a kid on socialism made me sure that he is running from a script not from any actual opinions of his own.

of your list i've only heard of 3 of them.

a few years back when i still had xm i would listen to "patriot radio" (lol) fairly often. mark levin was on there but he's a clown, andrew wilkow made consistently terrible arguments despite saying "the arguments can't be broken"

the only one i seemed to agree with from time to time was david webb so i'll go with him.

Shapiro isnt too bad at times. Shapiro is honest enough to point out (some of) his blunders.

But partisanship has started making him kinda stupid. Which to be fair, can be said for most other political pundits, both left and right wing. Queue all the strawmans you see from him.

Is Dave right-leaning? I stopped listening to him awhile ago. He just makes everything about himself.

Anyway, I enjoy listening to Ben Shapiro. I don't agree with a lot of what he says but I find it entertaining. Katie Hopkins is funny too but she tries too much to be edgy. There is already a Milo....whatever happened to him.

Dave Rubin is not right-leaning.

He just has some moderate left views which with the birth of the Trump era has become right-leaning.

But it´s funny was just thinking it awhile back that he does seem to love talking about himself :)

Dave Rubin? He claims to lean "classicaly left" even though he shows his alt-right sympathies WAY, WAY too often. So, I'd say he is. People lie about their views ALL the time.

I'm honestly not sure which is worse between Jimmy and Alex, honestly. But at least both can be assured when two prominent demagogues in both major American political parties are fans of them (Jimmy's top "Democrat" fan and Alex's top "Republican" fan)

Shapiro.

I don’t listen to his show but’ve watched many of his talks at colleges and debates with students. He’s quite intelligent and can present and support his positions well, but man alive is the dude a motor mouth if I’ve ever seen one. And while I don’t agree with what he says a lot of the time (mostly about transgender people), he’s nevertheless respectful to those he’s talking to and welcomes liberals with open arms to his gatherings.

Also, he didn’t vote for Trump based on moral grounds, and the fact that he refused to sell out his values in order to further his own political interests is something that’s very rare to find nowadays, especially when working in the political sphere. I have to say that I greatly respect and admire him for that. The man has integrity.

@MirkoS77: I kind of agree with most of what you're saying there. Shapiro is a divisive figure, but there are at least some things I can agree with him on, while disagreeing with him on other things. And he at least makes an attempt at appealing to reason (though he often fails there), rather than appealing to emotion. He's different to the other right-wing blowhards, or maybe because he's just the least worst of the bunch.
