Do you think Ben Shapiro popularized the use of the Gish Gallop on the right?

For those you don't know, the "Gish Gallop" is basically spamming your opponent with points related to the main theme of your argument to try to overwhelm them.Ben Shapiro uses this a lot on college campuses to make 18 year olds look dumb but when he tried it on a competent debater he was able to see how all of these points were related and could be refuted in one or two sentences. So when his main (and pretty much only) tactic didn't work, he choked up big time and ended up sounding like a malfunctioning robot.I've noticed quite a few people on the right use this tactic (especially libertarians).
