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

WATCH: This is the Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV (2020)

Mercedes-Benz is presenting the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury. The design of the crossover, based on an exclusive high-end saloon and an SUV, follows the philosophy of Sensual Purity.

The show car combines the comfort and typical strengths of both body styles. These include the raised seating position and the athletic looks. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is conceived as an electric car. Thanks to its four compact permanent-magnet synchronous motors, it offers fully variable all-wheel drive. The output from the powertrain is 550 kW (750 horsepower). The flat underfloor battery has a usable capacity of around 80 kWh, producing an NEDC range of over 500 kilometres (according to EPA: over 200 miles). The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155mph).

The fast-charging function is also convenient: thanks to DC charging based on the CCS standard, the system allows a charging capacity of up to 350 kW. In just five minutes, enough power can be charged to achieve an additional range of around 100 kilometres (62 miles).
