‘s server Rubin’s Report could have written a book detailing all the current assaults on the American way of life.
That should get a lot of attention, no doubt, especially given Dave Rubin’s famous status on the right.
Instead, Rubin gave an unofficial owner’s guide to becoming an American citizen in Age of Woke.
“Don’t burn this country, “The clever sequel to “Don’t Burn This Book” in 2020, offers practical tips for surviving in a dysfunctional culture. It is also a handbook for restoring the liberties we may find lost so long ago.
Rubin talked to Right on Hollywood this week about his new book, how the waking mob conquered America, and why Jon Stewart let down his inner indie comic.
The self-described “classical liberal” doesn’t stick to labels, but he says the modern conservative movement represents a broad constituency.
They may not agree on hot button issues, but their alarm over the wake-up revolution unites them. He noted that in both his book and Right on Hollywood conversation, was a golden opportunity. Center-leftists and Republicans must unite, and quickly, before the revolution awakens to conquer even more cultures.
“Never mind our differences on the issue of release… we have to save America first,” said Rubin.
The awakening mind, Rubin added, is “the most anti-human political movement that has ever existed in our lifetime. That’s what we’re up against. ”
“Don’t Burn This Country” offers a poignant, yet powerful, response to pop culture to illustrate his point. Remember the classic 1979 movie “Alien,” where the ship’s medical officer turns out to be a cyborg working for the company behind the mission? Actor Ian Holm’s character admires the creature that slaughters each crew member. It’s relentless, a pure life force that won’t stop until it ravages the ship.
Rubin wrote in the book waking up, offering a similar positive approach. There is a lesson to be learned from the comparison.
Rubin said: “You have to give it to the devil. “They did a lot, and it was terrible. Until you admit it, you can’t just fight it.”
He also explains how they travel so far, so fast.
“They used liberalism against itself… shouting liberal slogans, but louder,” he said. Sober libertarians consider this new, aggressive approach to be sexier, more effective, at least at first.
“If you put tolerance above all else, you will start to be intolerant,” he said. “That’s what happened with the modern liberal party.”
Rubin applauds libertarians like Glenn Greenwald, who adhered to their core principles when the Left moved to wake camp, although in Greenwald’s case, the host of the Rubin Report there’s a bone to choose from.
“Here’s a guy who basically called me a racist five years ago, and now he’s repeating everything I’m saying,” said Rubin.
Rubin is more than just a famous author and talk show host. He has been working on maintaining the circuit for many years, which gives him exceptional insight into the wake-up problem of comedy.
Comedians like Ricky Gervais, Bill Maher, Dave Chappelle and Joe Rogan “all sound like conservatives today… they are defending liberal principles,” he said.
That brings Rubin to Jon stewart, whom the author considers the “most disappointing” of modern awakening comics. Stewart’s New Apple TV+ Show, “The Problem With Jon Stewart,” fully embraced identity politics in recent weeks.
“Jon Stewart knew he was a super rich, middle-aged white guy… He was basically in a hostage situation with his own audience,” Rubin said of his awakened fans. me. “His day is over. It’s good now. You’ve been involved for a while. That’s what it is.”
Rubin welcomes Maher’s recent attacks on sobriety but doesn’t sell the value of his dedication to problem-solving.
“Bill Maher is a little more sensible, but until he’s ready to vote properly or stop calling all Republicans racists he’s not quite there.” he say.
