Liberal Who ‘Left the Left’ Is Now Exposing Progressives’ Double Standard on Speech

Comedian and host Dave Rubin identifies as a classical liberal who has broken away from the progressive left. The host of “The Rubin Report” joined Glenn on today’s show to talk about everything from free speech to the rise of artificial intelligence.

“We live in a society now where ideas are frightening, and ideas don’t frighten me,” Glenn said. “What frightens me are those people who believe only their ideas have value and should be heard.”

Rubin pointed out that free thinkers from both sides of the aisle are learning to come together even when they disagree. Ben Shapiro and Sam Harris may be opposites on the political spectrum, but they’ve been able to have civil discussions that we can all learn from.

“This is going to be the year of unusual alliances, and I think we’re seeing that already,” Rubin said.

Here are some of the topics Glenn and Rubin covered on today’s show (listen to the full interview here):

  • Why we’re all becoming “parasites” on Twitter
  • How Rubin went through an awakening to leave the progressive left
  • The difference between classical liberals and progressives
  • How the left “reacts to truth”
  • What Christina Hoff Sommers, Ben Shapiro and Sam Harris have in common

Crimes or Cover-Up? Exposing the World’s Most Dangerous Lie

COVID-19 changed everything. The way we live our lives, how we operate our businesses, how we see each other. And now, the federal government is sinking its tendrils even deeper, threatening the fabric not only of our bodily autonomy, but of the republic.

Our American way of life may never be the same. To save it, we must understand the key fundamentals of the pandemic that transfigured our society into the nightmare it is today. What is the COVID-19 origin story? Who are its top players in government and science, pulling the strings? What was their REAL response in the first days of the pandemic? The answers to these questions are frightening.

Emails, documents, and federal contracts tell a dark story that is still dominating our lives. It's time to cast a light on the shocking truth. Because only with the truth can we emerge from the darkness of this "pandemic" and take back the liberty stolen from us.

This is Glenn Beck's most important chalkboard of his life. And the most pivotal time in yours.

The Journalist Who Schooled Brian Stelter on Woke Media | Batya Ungar-Sargon | Ep 125

Wokeness has taken over the American Left — or at least the elite — and the corporate media is leading the charge. But the Left's "Great Awokening" is actually fueling a great awakening of average liberals, this week's guest included. Newsweek deputy opinion editor Batya Ungar-Sargon joins Glenn after taking CNN's Brian Stelter to school about wokeness — on HIS OWN show. She reviews the biggest takeaways from her new book, "Bad News: How Woke Media Is Undermining Democracy," including how journalists have abandoned the working class, how she overcame Trump Derangement Syndrome, why the Left hates conservative media, and why there's much more that unites us than divides us.
