Another one of those Stumble Upon things…
This looks like the latest video that summarizes the prior segments. Yes, it’s an hour and 4 minutes…
What is interesting to me is how they both self-identify as “Left” but of the Rational Moderate Left, and both are saying the same things, about the Democratic Party having gone nutzo and the Yellow Stream Media (YSM) going off-the-deep-end partisan hysterical, that you hear from folks on the Right.
Basically, they, too, are seeing the Trump Derangement Syndrome on display.
There’s lots of other stuff in the video also. Bryan Dean Wright is the person being interviewed. Here’s the show notes:
Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Bryan Dean Wright (former CIA ops officer) about Iran and the current escalation of conflict with the US. Bryan has a unique perspective being a former CIA agent and a lifelong Democrat. He shares his thoughts on how the recent death of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani ordered by Donald Trump could play out. Bryan lays out the most likely ways that Iran could respond and what he believes Iran really wants. He discusses why a US presence in the Middle East is vital and not changing anytime soon, unless we radically rethink our energy policy as it pertains to oil. Bryan gives an insider’s take on what exactly the “deep state” is and how they use leaks to the media like the New York Times and the Washington Post to steer the narrative in a direction more favorable to their interests. Bryan gives his feelings on the abuses of power of John Brennan, James Clapper, and James Comey. And Bryan discusses how a Trump victory against a progressive candidate like Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren could actually help save the Democratic party and return it to it’s roots of supporting the working class voter.
I think this is further evidence that the Democratic Party is driving out the moderate / middle American Democrats as they push to the Socialist Fringe.
It looks like he’s put out bits of the interview in 10 minute segments in other videos, and now this one is the whole thing. Unless there’s another chunk coming ;-)
This following bit is from January 2017 and gives the Rubin perspective on The Left and the recent changes in it, talking about the “Regressive Left” 8 minutes:
Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks about why he thinks the Left is no longer liberal. “The issues I care about most, free speech, the rights of the individual, and limited government designed to maximize liberty, have almost nothing to do anymore with the modern American Left. My positions basically haven’t changed, but I’ve watched as my team has gone off the deep end.”
The Direct Message segments of the Rubin Report are a chance for Dave Rubin to directly address current events, political news and the topics of the day. Whether it’s encouraging critical thinking, defending free speech, or fending off political correctness, it’s only by having calm rational conversations about these issues that can help de-escalate the political polarization and help heal our democracy.
Seems like there’s still some folks who are current or former Democrats who have their head on straight.
