Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Ted Cruz (U.S. Senator from Texas and best selling author of “A Time for Truth: Reigniting the Promise of America,” ) about big tech’s US election meddling, the dangers of democratic socialism, and if the woke outrage mobs will spare the virtue signalling liberal elites of Silicon Valley and Hollywood. Ted talks about the big tech censorship by large social media companies like Google, Facebook and Twitter. He discusses the evidence he’s seen of shadowbans and of Google search bias and how it was used in the 2016 election and how many votes it could swing to the Democratic Party in 2020. He also gives his thoughts on President Trump’s threats to repeal section 230 of the Communications Decency Act and why he worries about rigged elections and the almost monopoly power of silicon valley. Ted discusses his fear of the Democratic party’s embrace of socialism. Ted shares what it was like to debate Bernie Sanders as well as the real dangers of woke cancel culture mobs. Ted also discusses why socialist countries create more poverty than countries with capitalism. He shares his own immigrant background and how the American Dream made it possible for the child of a poor Cuban immigrant to grow up to be a United States senator. He also discusses the uniqueness of the Constitution of the United States for restraining the powers of government. Ted talks about how the Democratic party has changed from the party of blue collar workers to the party of the silicon valley elites. He wonders if the virtue signalling liberal elite really believe that they will be spared from the woke cancel culture mobs. He discusses how intolerant the left have gotten when people like Peter Thiel feel the need to get out of silicon valley.
