Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Ben Shapiro (The Daily Wire, Author of How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps) about systemic racism, the flawed thinking of antiracism, cancel culture, and forgotten American history. Ben can’t help but swear when describing the state of the union. Ben discusses the true danger of progressives changing the definition of racism. He gives his thoughts on the recent criticism of “whiteness”. Ben also talks about how the values of American society that people like Ibram X Kendi demonize, are the same values that enabled so many African Americans to achieve success in America. Ben discusses how even liberals seemed to be worried about the turn that woke politics are taking. Ben discusses the dangerous view shared by many on the left that free speech is not a natural right, but something to be used to acquire power. Ben explains why he feels uncomfortable being on the same side of an issue as Vox’s Matthew Yglesias. Ben gives his thoughts on antiracism, white fragility and points out the flaws in the systemic racism arguments made by liberals. He also tries to understand how liberals like AOC can make the claim that cancel culture doesn’t exist. Ben shares his honest thoughts on COVID 19 and how hard it is to find the truth when we have been told multiple conflicting messages about masks and protests. He also finds it hilarious that people like Bill De Blaiso and Andrew Cuomo have been celebrated by the media despite New York state having the highest death toll in the country. Ben talks about the current state of cancel culture and crazy SJW woke mobs and their ignorance of basic American history. Ben also predicts the reason why leftists of the future will deem Barack Obama statues problematic. Their lack of historical knowledge on a variety of issues like slavery, abolitionists, and natural rights enables them to view America as a place of unending injustice. Instead of understanding the importance of natural rights as the foundation on which Frederick Douglass, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcom X and gay rights groups made their claims for equality, they have a learned a history of the United States that is one long story of oppression. Ben also discusses the collapse of our liberal institutions like the New York Times, the Harpers letter, Joe Biden, Donald Trump and so much more.
