DAVE RUBIN: ANOTHER OF US FORMER DEMOCRATS FED UP WITH THE PARTY

rubin-reportHere at Balladeer’s Blog I often write about my own personal disillusionment with the increasingly fascistic and intolerant American Left in general and the Democrats in particular. The famed Dave Rubin had a similar estrangement from the fanatics called Democrats.

In a recent interview he went so far as to predict that leftists will destroy themselves with the way they continue purging rational Democrats from the party. The link is below but first some excerpts:

“The Left, unfortunately, has become about collectivism,” said the Rubin Report host, who added that those who believe in the “collective over the individual” are the ones who are actually “exerting prejudice.”

Rubin also pointed out how the left still tries to hurl unfounded accusations of “hatred” against everyone who disagrees with them:

“If the conservatives are the home of the homophobes and the bigots, [then conservatives] are doing a really, really terrible job of it,” said Rubin at the recent Student Action Summit for Turning Point USA.

“You’ve got one side [the Left] that screams about tolerance all the time, but never actually exerts it, and you have another side that doesn’t talk about tolerance that much, because they just sort of act that way.”

“This idea of intersectionality — [the Left] has created this Pyramid of Oppression Olympics that is in constant competition to be more oppressed,” said Rubin.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, FOR SUPPORTERS OF FREE SPEECH: Rubin discussed the way that sites like Patreon seem to have joined the corporate fascists at Facebook, Google and Twitter in trying to eliminate online dissent from the Democrat Party line. Obliquely referring to the rumored start of a FREE SPEECH ALTERNATIVE TO PATREON, Rubin said “The cavalry’s coming.”

  1. A functioning democracy and republic requires opposing views to not only balance one other out, but to act as a release valve for the more extreme views of both sides. However, when extreme labels are used to identify any position that differs from yours, dialog with “the enemy” becomes impossible.

    And while it’s true both sides are guilty of this, it cannot be denied that the institutions of our society are all controlled by the left wing side, with the right wing being on the outside. This entails that the power of the establishment is dominated by one side, which is why it’s important to raise these issues when abuse of the foundations of a liberal society (small L) are abused. That’s why it may seem like these critiques are “pro Republican” or “pro Conservative” which is really not the case. I believe it’s more about the abuse of power of the side in power. Thanks for bringing this up.

    I love when you point these things out. The Democrats act all the ways I hated when Republicans acted that way.
