Dave Rubin is fantastic. The once-Democrat made the pilgrimage to liberty-touting ex-left-winger, and now he’s spreading the word.
And part of that word, these days, is a warning.
In the Dennis Prager/Adam Carolla documentary No Safe Spaces, Dave has a message for liberals who may think they’ll be given a pass by the Marxist mob.
Dave says the New Left runs a tight ship:
“There is a reason that every time one of these professors, or T.A.s, whether its Lindsay Shephard in Canada or Bret Weinstein in Washington, why are they all lefties who then say one thing that upsets the Left and they’re purged?”
If you think they won’t come for you ’cause you’re hip to the cause, just wait ’til you break a primary rule — No Individuality Allowed:
“It will come for you. If there is someone watching this right now that is a hardcore progressive, that’s going, ‘Man, I hate Prager and Rubin, and this is all nonsense,’ guess what? If you have any spark of individualism in you — if you have anything about you that’s interesting or different — they will destroy that, too.”
No Safe Spaces is being funded — at least in part — by an Indiegogo campaign.
Here’s some info from the official crowdfunding page:
We see it in the news almost every day. Entitled snowflakes on college campuses raging and screaming every time they encounter an idea they disagree with. These stories might be somewhat amusing if they weren’t such a dangerous indication of what’s to come. Trigger warnings, micro-aggressions, the suppression of free speech, and other illogical ideas born on campuses are proliferating and spreading out into the real world.
Today’s campus snowflake is tomorrow’s teacher, judge, or elected official. And if that doesn’t scare you, maybe you should reconsider. No matter where you live or what you do, if you don’t think they way they do, they will attempt to silence and punish you.
Of course, left-wingers and liberals aren’t the same thing. Or, at least, the New Left is a far cry from the classic liberal. Berkeley’s Free Speech Movement’s been apparently replaced by Berkeley’s Free Speech Squash.
What the heck happened?
Dave’s found himself underfoot of expelled expression, as pointed out by The Daily Wire:
Recently, Facebook prevented a California charter school from advertising about a screening hosted by Dave Rubin on their platform because the school administrator’s refused to identify as partisan.
“They asked me a bunch of personal questions, then said I’d need to identify as a political entity, even though the ad doesn’t mention a party or a politician and takes no political stance whatsoever,” said Acton Placer Academy’s CEO Matt Beaudreau. “Facebook said if we don’t disclose a political affiliation, the ads won’t run. But we’re a nonpartisan school. We’re not a political entity. We’re not going to do that. We have as many parents who are Democrats as we have who are Republicans. The whole purpose of the event is to show that people can put politics aside and have civil debate.”

If it doesn’t get squashed.
