The Culture War college tour started on 7 October at the University Of Nevada in Reno, after which the show moved to Grand Canyon University in Phoenix on 21 October, the Colorado State University in Fort Collins and the University of Iowa on 23 and 24 October. The next day, the tour stopped at the University of New Hampshire.
During these last stops of the tour a new phenomenon became visible. More and more new self-declared ‘dissident right’ activists used the opportunity of the Q&A sessions of the show to frame Kirk and what they see as 'The Conservative, Inc.’ as imposters and fake conservatives. - Groypers have been invading all QandA's and asking about traditional conservative/Christian values, Israel and immigration.
The old divide and infighting between conservatives re-emerges. These activists go by the name Nickers – in the sense of fans of extreme right YouTube personality and host of America First Nick Fuentes – or Groypers.
Nick Fuentes is the complete opposite of a shock jock, a Zoomer Youtuber, trolling and meme'ing his way to victory with humour and Joker quotes.
You might not like either party but damn its been a wild ride! Nick with his 40k followers has managed to almost destroy Turning Point USA, with people like Paul Joseph Watson, Sargon, JF, AMazing Lucas, and a host of others all chipping in with their support as well as many conservatives trying to shoot down the Nickers.
This resulted in Shapiro spending an hour trying to shoot down the points
But all he has done is made Fuentes even more popular - he has gained 20k plus youtube subs, had 17,000 live watching him on D-Live and this shows no sign of slowing down.
