Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Bryan Callen (Actor, Comedian, Podcaster) about Americans desire for Socialism, the ignoring of black conservatives who don’t think what they’re supposed to and if leaving California is what all Los Angeles residents should consider. Bryan discusses cancel culture, woke politics and the self censorship that is becoming more widespread in comedy. While we have free speech in the United States it doesn’t stop the unnecessary censorship that people are imposing on themselves to protect their livelihoods. Bryan discusses how he thinks most Americans have no desire for democratic socialism and don’t respond well to extreme ideas on the right or on the left. He also gives his feelings on what he calls the “cognitive elites” who live in their own echo chambers and have grown out of touch from most regular Americans. Bryan talks about his issues with the ideas of white privilege, white fragility and systemic racism. He also points out that the mainstream media have no problem ignoring any black Republicans that question the accepted narratives of race in America. Bryan feels the ignoring of black conservatives like Thomas Sowell, Candace Owens, Larry Elder and Shelby Steele is proof that people are afraid of having their ideas challenged by thoughtful arguments. Bryan also discusses how the Democratic Party’s policy on immigration has the potential to backfire with black voters. Bryan also shares a story about Richard Pryor and Paul Mooney to illustrate the different types of relationships that white and African Americans have with police officers. Bryan talks about whether leaving California or staying and fighting is the best option. Under the leadership of people like Governor Gavin Newsom and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti he has seen the homeless encampments near his home in Venice grow year after year while the state income tax goes higher and higher. Is fleeing California and their high taxes to move to Texas or Florida the only option left to escape California’s inevitable financial crisis from it’s wasteful spending, and endless chants of “tax the rich”?
This episode was pre-recorded before Dave Rubin went off the grid in August.
