Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Andrew Doyle creator of the fictitious character Titania McGrath. He (writing as Titania) is the author of the new book “Woke: A Guide to Social Justice”. Andrew is a journalist, playwright, and political satirist. Titania McGrath is the extreme social justice warrior Twitter persona of Doyle’s that he uses to satirize the craziest extremes of identity politics from the SJW progressive left. Andrew shares some of his craziest tweets that started as jokes, but eventually became reality. He shares his belief that it isn’t the young, often described as snowflakes, who are the problem, but the professors in academia who are pushing these belief systems. Andrew Doyle also describes how woke politics in the UK is beginning to legitimize thoughtcrime. He tells stories that sound like something out of George Orwell’s 1984. People have been interviewed by the police and arrested for jokes and having opinions that conflict with the identity politics ideology. He tells the story of a British man who retweeted a poem that was deemed offensive and was investigated by the police for a “non-crime hate incident”. Andrew also describes how woke politics has infected the Labour party in the UK and why so many British supported Brexit. He also shares his thoughts about how the current progressive left misinterprets some of the basic foundations of the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s, like freedom of speech and are now in the process of undoing some of the achievements of the Civil Right era. He also gives his take on the recent cancelling of JK Rowling and why he doesn’t have much faith in comedy or the arts fighting back against cancel culture.
