WATCH: Dave Rubin’s Conversion From Progressive to Classical Liberal

Toss away the labels and groupthink, and you’ve got a solid chance of helping a progressive believer see the light — as long as they let reason, not emotion rule their thinking.

That’s exactly what happened to Dave Rubin, host of The Rubin Report and former progressive who now calls himself a classical liberal. Rubin, who recently filmed a video with Prager U about his conversion, joined The Glenn Beck Program on Tuesday.

“I think something happened to ‘progressive’ in the last couple of years where it went from at least some healthy dose of true liberalism, classical liberalism and it’s become just an authoritarian mess,” Rubin said.

“So maybe I was a little late to the party on some of that stuff. Maybe I have just a high tolerance for some old-fashioned BS. Really, if you look back at my show for the last two years, I’ve spent the last two years of my life trying to get some of the good liberals to realize what’s happening, and I think I succeeded at some of that. But clearly the progressives are going off the deep end.”
