‘I remember thinking liberals were the good guys’: Dave Rubin on why he really left the left

TV personality, comedian, and host of ‘The Rubin Report’, Dave Rubin, joined Glenn Beck in the studio today to fill us in on how a lifelong liberal and onetime host on the ultra-progressive Young Turks Network, decided to leave the left. Rubin describes having an “awakening” when he recognized that the left no longer held to what he considered liberal issues such as freedom of speech and religion, racial justice, and the ability to live a truly free life without interference from a big government.

“There were a lot of trends that I didn’t like,” explained Rubin, noting a “constant rush to judge people’s motives, a constant attack on people instead of ideas, a constant distortion of truth.”

Rubin grew up in a strongly political, “mostly Democratic” family in New York. “I remember thinking Democrats and liberals were the good guys. They cared about the little guy, they cared about poor people, they cared about minorities … these are the good guys. The Republicans care about money, power, war, corporations, all of that stuff,” said Rubin. “At my formative years … I thought the system basically worked. I’ve changed on that now. I think the system is no longer in a place of working. And that, I think, will generally lead people to a more classical liberal or libertarian position … a limited government person.”

ARTICLE: 'Reasons why the 2020 presidential election is deeply puzzling'

Glenn reads from a recent article in The Spectator, called 'Reasons why the 2020 presidential election is deeply puzzling' by Patrick Basham. The article details 2020 Election statistics, and it explains how Joe Biden's numbers — thanks to several 'avalanches' of votes — may show that something dishonest really did happen in November. So, now's the time to ask: do YOU trust our election process? Because if not, Glenn says "we're done as a free republic."

Dave Rubin says the far-left doesn’t REALLY want ‘reconciliation’ with conservatives

Dave Rubin joined Glenn in-studio earlier this month, and he shared a personal story about a longtime friend who identifies VERY differently on the political spectrum. And, through his most recent interactions with this friend, Rubin says he realized most on the far-left have very little interest in ACTUAL reconciliation with conservatives. In fact, Rubin says, the fake-reconciliation they're truly interested in is all part of the left's 'mind virus'…

This Brit Has a Dire Warning for America | Douglas Murray | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 89

The state of America is worse than we realize: The Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority." But British author Douglas Murray asks, "Why should the majority remain silent?" In his latest book, "The Madness of Crowds," Murray warns that something dark has overtaken Western society. And having viewed the American Left firsthand, he now warns that we're heading down the same path as much of Europe did – and leading the rest of the world with us. He and Glenn discuss what he learned from marching with Antifa, the dangers of focusing on race and eroding masculinity, and whether it's actually time to be more like France as even President Macron warns that we've gone too far. But ultimately, Murray stresses with cautious hope that it's always possible to return to truth.

Battleground Georgia: The Radical Democrats Who Will Transform America | Glenn TV

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda. As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
