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

But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
