"Dave and I have spoke at campuses all across the country, Berkeley university of Connecticut. We also did LSU together. Remember that Dave that was fun. When Charlie, I got one that you didn't show up to. You remember the New Hampshire one that you had to do. And you didn't show up, you had Kanye showed up and it's a big thing with Candice and the whole thing. So I end up at a venue. It was supposed to be in front of 500 kids, but because there were so many threats against scary Candace Owens and Charlie Kirk and Dave Rubin, they moved it to a hockey rink for 5000 people where I gave a speech for 500 kids there yelling at me throwing things at me screaming noise makers, it was bananas. But here's why I don't feel bad. You got millions of views off that content. It's everyone. You made your money back with that one. So Dave talk about the conservative movement, which, in some ways, people describe it as an anti woke movement. Where is it at? You call yourself a conservative you identify as one. I think you've been a right winger for quite some time where are we at? Well, look, I would say that any movement that is going to be real in a true democracy in a pluralistic society where you by definition you are supposed to live in a nation with people who think different things or perhaps have different lifestyles, whatever it might be. By definition, you should have a wide tent political movement. Now, I understand that there are traditional religious conservatives. There's more libertarian leaning conservatives. There's sort of the Trump wing and the anti Trump people. There's neocons. There's all of these people that are trying to fit together with something that on one hand has to do what you just said, which is defeat the woke. But then also, let's say we defeat the woke. And I really do think that could be on the horizon. I think the midterms are going to start to prove it, but I also think the model, especially here in Florida through Ronda's head is the model of how to govern properly by not being a king and actually handing the power back to the people and letting them make choices. I think that's attractive. So it's starting to come together. But what I think the challenge will be and I think this is where you and I guys like you and I can help mold it. It's like, all right, so there might be say more, let's say, libertarian or socially leaning conservatives. Someone like Rudy Giuliani, I think is a good example of this. Rudy Giuliani, anyone in their right mind thinks he's a conservative, obviously. He works for Trump and he was a Republican mayor of New York City, et cetera, et cetera. He's obviously conservative. Well, Rudy Giuliani happens to be pro choice with, you know, he wants some just few week limit on abortion. There's an awful lot of people that fit on that, meaning that they are conservative when it comes to most of the other issues related to government, and they don't fit into the perfect Republican box when it comes to that. Well, obviously you want someone like Rudy on your side. I would put myself in something like that. So I would say I might be a little bit more on the libertarian side of the conservative movement and then maybe on the further to the right of that you would have maybe more traditional religious conservatives. But I think the things that we fundamentally have to agree honors that the founding of the United States is good that our documents based on individual rights and limited government are beautiful. And then the cultural stuff that maybe we disagree on a little bit, which by the way, I'm completely okay with that we may disagree on it. But we have to also fundamentally realize that families good. That handing down generations of knowledge and of history of our forefathers who lived Charlie in way worse conditions than us who only threw fighting for freedom made it so easy so that guys like us could talk about ideas instead of having to deal with them on the battlefield. We have to understand the traditions are valuable that family is valuable. All of those things, that I would say is a little bit more on the personal side and not fully a governmental thing. But this is where we're going to have some push and pull, but I love that stuff. And I hope that might say new conservative Friends are willing to continue to have that conversation. Which, by the way, they've been completely willing to. Of course. Yeah. And I mean, this is why people like Peter pago and who's an atheist who would probably be more on I think further left than you on certain issues, maybe not. Sure, is willing to be like, let's build a coalition against the woke, right? And that's where you're kind of seeing that sort of energy coalesce because it is an existential domestic threat. It really is. I mean, you know what I know it. These people are willing to use political power to try to crush dissidents and it's something that is a serious, a serious threat to the American way of life. Dave Rubin from locals dot com I wish we had more time also by his book, don't burn this book. It's a great book. Don't burn it if you get it. Don't be anti liberal in that sense. But Dave, I want to have you back on. I want to explore a lot of these topics more deeply with you. But you're exactly right. Like the very basic fruits of the enlightenment, basic things that the founding fathers talked about separation of powers consent to the governed in append judiciary, these are things that are fundamental to western civilization and western civilizations a good thing. And that's worthy of protection and preservation. Charlie, I know we're tight on time, but now I live in Florida so we can break right above ground. You used to have to come to my undergraduate school in LA. Now we can do it in public. It's wild. And pays 0% income tax. Dave God bless you. Thanks so much for joining us. Good see you brother.

Why Are Bari Weiss and Bill Maher Getting All the Credit? Dave Rubin Explains
"dave rubin" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Discuss any of that if you'd like to. But the general idea behind what we've done with locals and rumbles rumble is that you are welcome to come here and say what you want. And as I said earlier, if you break the law, you have a bigger problem than us. Now one of the things that I think we did really, really well on the local side was that we handed the power around speech to the creators. So basically, we build you a community, people have to pay a couple bucks to get in. And then you decide who can be in your community and who can't be in your community. So in other words, if somebody comes and joins the Rubin report community. First off, they have to pay a few dollars, and you're not going to believe it, Charlie. If you charge people and nickel, literally a nickel, you will already eliminate probably 99% of the bad actors because people don't want to pay just to be a pain in the butt online. Because everyone is awful and has burner accounts and all these anonymous accounts and tries to attack people. Because they're anonymous, there's no skin in the game. So literally for 5 cents, I kid you not. I think you could eliminate most of that. So what we said was, hey, for a couple of bucks you can join the Rubin report community. And that will clean most of it up. Now, if you want to spend a couple of bucks and join the Rubin report community or the Charlie Kirk community or any other community, if you want to do that because you 8 Dave Rubin, or you hate Charlie Kirk, well, now we got a choice here. Charlie is in charge of Charlie's community. And Charlie could say, hey, this guy really doesn't like me. He says, mean things about me in my community, but you know what he's paying me money and I believe in capitalism and I'm going to profit off it. That's number one. And allow him to say what he wants, or you could say, hey, you know what? I don't want this guy's money. I'm going to boot him out of my community, but he could still be in anyone else's community. And that really is how we all deal with free speech. So if you think about it this way, I always tell people, locals, we build digital homes for creators. So if anyone is outside of my house on a public street and they're screaming, I hate Dave Rubin. He's a meme guy, and he's Friends with mean people like Charlie Kirk. Well, they can do that on a public street. But I don't invite them into my house to do that. So I think that was one of the very clever ways that we worked some of this stuff around speech. But I'm happy to get into some of the more arbitrary of the Internet. We don't need to dwell on it. I just find it interesting because, you know, I hate censorship. I've been victim of it so of you and at the same time, I do love being able to black people on certain charts because there's just when I mean the ugliest, you know what I mean. Dave, I mean people that have anonymous accounts that posts like Holocaust jokes, like you're a terrible person. You know what I mean? Yeah. Yeah, well, the question is, all right, so what do we do about that? So for the people that just want to post really horrific memes about slavery or about the Holocaust precisely. And they're just doing it because they're antisocial. It's really, and they're whatever. Look, look, the Internet, Charlie, the Internet, and you've often talked about this related to devices in young people. We have been handed this tool in the last 20 years that none of us understood what we were being handed. And I would also argue that the people who designed it in many cases didn't understand. You know, the guy who invented infinite scroll. Remember early days of the Internet, even say ten years ago or so, you'd get to the end of a web page. Remember, you'd go to CNN dot com and there would be a certain amount of stories and you could drag it for a little bit. But then it would stop. Well, then this guy invented something called infinite scroll, which we now all know. This is an endless scrolling feed, which will deliver you either dopamine, on some level, if it's positive, but it can deliver you fear and anger and everything else. And it will go on endlessly endlessly. And then when you throw in all the crazy things that you can see online, that can either make you happy or sad or whatever else it might be. The guy who invented endless.
Dave Rubin, Founder of Locals, Describes His Decision to Leave Patreon
"Because so many people talk a good game with this stuff. And I kind of walked through this with you for quite a while, right? That you were criticizing Google, you were talking with them trying to say, hey, can you back down YouTube? Can we make this work? Because you had an amazingly big YouTube song and you're still doing things on YouTube obviously. You haven't told all the above approach. But it was really the Patreon thing that it seemed motivate you more than anything else, especially kind of the Jordan Peterson delisting from Patreon, you want on tour with Jordan and you decided, hey, I'm an entrepreneur. I own my own stuff. Let's do this thing. And talk about the Patreon thing because that really was where they thought they could choke point the ability for creators to make money and not live within a corporate box. Yeah, I'm glad to ask because you know it sounds like a little bit like inside or baseball stuff. How do these things come together? But it is important because the way information moves so fast these days, we all kind of forget the seminal moments that happen before that led to any of us to this. And I mean, by any of us, I mean that led any of us to being addicted to these devices to having given all our data away and everything else. So basically, back in it was December of 2018, there was a guy who I'm guessing, maybe you've talked to before, who goes by the name sargon of akai on YouTube. His real name is Carl Benjamin. He's in the UK and he was one of the first guys about 5 or 6 years ago when I was going through my own political awakening, realizing how sort of corrupt and backwards the progressives are. And I how they had abandoned liberalism. He was one of the guys on YouTube that described himself as a classical liberal. He was fighting for individual rights and liberty, most things that we now associate with libertarians and conservatives. But he was an interesting guy to talk to. Anyway, he was on Patreon and Patreon for your audience that doesn't know. They're basically just a crowdfunding subscription site. So if you produce pretty much anything online, they will enable you to have your audience subscribe monthly to what you do, you set your price limit, et cetera. Anyway, I went on Patreon. That's where I was funding my shows about 80% of my rev I built. I built a really successful company around that and hired a bunch of employees and everything else. I was on Patreon, Jordan Peterson was on Patreon as well. Some other big people. And Carl Benjamin, sargon of akat. He was on there. And he went on someone else's show, not his Patreon channel, not his YouTube that was funded by Patreon. He went on someone else's show that had nothing to do with Patreon and he said the N word. And he said the N word not to be racially offensive or pejorative, but he said it because he was mocking the people who use that language. Patreon decided without any warning without any recourse to delete his channel. Now, he was running his own business in that way. So they just said to him, hey, we're not even going to give you a chance to explain to yourself, but really what it was. He wasn't just that. It was the fact that it had nothing to do with Patreon that really was the bell in my mind like the warning. The canary in the coal mine. Where it was like, wait a minute. They can boot you off services for things that you've done that have nothing to do with the services themselves.

With us right now, is a friend of mine and the founder of locals, which is now merged with rumble. Congratulations to all behind it, including the founder, and he's one of the smartest and one of the most courageous fighters for free speech. On the planet, Dave Rubin, Dave, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Smartest and courageous, Charlie, our guys sent you the paperwork I see. I think it's good to see you. Now I omitted handsome because that would be weird. That would be weird. I like your hat. Thank you. It wouldn't be weird for you, but that's a separate issue. We can talk about that if you want. Not really. So, Dave, first, congratulations. Locals is amazing. We're starting to use it more and more. You're part of this parallel economy. Talk about it. You're an entrepreneur. It got acquired or merged with rumble. So walk us through that. Yeah, you know the truth is that for guys like us and all of the people that are now online and in mainstream media who talk about the problems of the world for a living, there is a value in talking. And then at some point, if you don't do anything about it, you're just talking. And then I would say you get ultimately diminishing returns on that. So all of us were screaming about big tech and were upset about shadow banning and de boosting an algorithmic tricks and all of this stuff. And I thought, all right, well, I've talked to a lot of people. No one seems to be willing to do anything. I guess I'll build something. And that really about three and a half years ago was the genesis of locals. I thought, well, what do I need as a creator? I want to own my video on my audio. I want to own the user data. I want to be able to communicate directly with my own audience without having to go through YouTube or Twitter or Facebook or Instagram, et cetera, et cetera. And we started building a really great product that also allowed my audience to subscribe to my stuff in essence so that I could actually make some money by producing, hopefully worthwhile content. And the company really grew really fast. I was able to get a great team of investors to help us bring on more programmers and just the right architects to build a really nice and I would say elegant product. And then the rumble guys came along and you know a bit about Chris ober rumble and the other people over there. And I thought, well, you know, you can fight alone, meaning I could build a great product and I can try to fight Google myself. And you know that David guy did beat Goliath, so maybe Dave can beat Google. But sometimes it's good to have a team too. You can think about as team sports so you can think Lord of the Rings or whatever. It's good to have some other people around you in the battle. And we just saw a great opportunity to merge what we're doing, which is subscription based solutions with what rumble is doing, which is sort of underbelly of the Internet, replace Amazon AWS, but also the front facing video YouTube side of things, so to speak. And we've merged. And this is just the beginning. I mean, the parallel economy, that's the phrase you use, which I've been using for quite some time. I'm not here to have the government come in and fix all of our problems. I don't think the government does anything well. What I would prefer to do is build better products. And that's exactly what our plan is and that's why I'm thrilled you're on there. And that's why the numbers are blowing up. I mean the proof's in the pudding. People want off ramps from the.

Gab Founder Andrew Torba Attacks Anyone Who Finds Free Speech Outside of Gab
"On right now, which I'm at the center of again. We had a great day yesterday would rumble. Rumbles. An alternative platform. As you know, I've stated before is inappropriate disclosure. I am an investor in that platform. It's a video alternative YouTube. We had a great day. Yesterday We had a bunch of new creators come on board. We're very happy that the website has exploded as a free speech alternative to YouTube. Again, instead of celebrating the fact that conservatives not just our platform at rumble, but many others are having a lot of success, taking on the big tech titans and building a parallel economy. That's not what happened. There were people out there in the movement who thought it was a good day to attack inside the tent. Which is kind of a bizarre approach. One of them is Andrew Torbush from Gabby, who seemingly has a childlike, uh, temperament and has a meltdown anytime anyone Other than Gabby as any success, which I find ironic because again if you've listened to my show, even though I don't own any of Gabby, I don't want to. Uh I have no problem with cab and I've actively sat on my show that you should open up accounts and all of these platforms. You listen to the show every day. You know that. Get her jab. There's cloud hub. There's Dave Rubin's locals. There's parlor, which I do have an ownership stake in but I've used my own airwaves in my own time to promote other people's platforms, because I believe in this fight. And whether it's a platform on involvement that winds or not, it doesn't matter. The fight that matters that we need to win is the fight for free speech, and I just find it odd that when others succeed in the free speech arena, the so called free speech, people like Corba turn their fire on them instead of the other people. Listen, I'm not here to lecture anyone. I'm not

"I'm in college right now and if i tell my professor in a paper let's say what i what i really believe if i go against what they're teaching us really. You know the propaganda that they're teaching us. I'm not going to get the grade. And jordan would say something that i think is is exactly what we all need right now. Which is that if you lie once if you lie once for the grade or you lie once because you think the mob won't come after you order. It's buying you some time or something like that. That will be the hardest time it is to lie and then every time after that it will be easier and easier and easier and he would say that four years later after you're out of college you won't even remember the person who lied in the first place and we're all sort of playing along with these lies. We know big tech censoring us. We know the government is lying us. We know it's fueled by corporate media but we all keep playing. And i think perhaps if we if we play a little less maybe get off some of these big tech platforms. I started locals dot com. Just do something in your life to no longer participate in the lie. They call us as they promulgate. The big lies it's It's quite apparent to me that they self diagnose every time they say that person is this.

"That our friends at not the be. Yeah be part of the community. The in crowd the be crowd. Let us know. Dan the listen but i would say joking. I would say the key part of that. The key part of that though is that i think you do need belief period you do. Societies cannot function without believe. We're seeing what a society at the end without belief you literally. If you say. Boys have penises and girls have china's. That's that's a controversial statement in a hyper secular society that we live now. And it's only the people of faith regardless of whether they're christian or jewish or whatever better showing me anything sensible right now so i can sit down with shapiro. Who's an orthodox jew. The way i could sit down with you guys and it's like again we we all. You may have different. Theological views as shapiro or as me but we all want to live in the same country. I think. I don't think i don't think live in wrong but please tell me. I don't think you guys wanna live in a religious theocracy. Maybe you do. Everyone got real quiet there dan. Dan started and that's what we want to protect. And that's exactly what the founders set up right like their god given rights and it's our job as a government to protect those rights not force you to believe anything but i think that's the way it's interesting to stuff because there's so many people it's not safe to even talk about it just interesting to be like. Hey here's a guy who hasn't had the same faith is us as a lot of different beliefs just you. We should revel in that really. I mean that. That really is the truth. And i think the reason people can't do it is because people don't know what they believe they. Don't i mean this is what jordan i think did so well at the peak of jordan for those years then i think he may peak again. He's just coming back now but he got people to just think about their life series. That was it you know. And in some ways that goes to that thomas whole thing about facts. It was like well you can either just wake up every morning and just like read the news and feel things about everything all the time and anything can happen and they can spin you off to any crazy belief and then we're watching that happen. I mean how many people that are on. Msnbc these people are delusional. I mean actually delusional. Did you see the clip. This morning of this woman mara gaye on. She's a new york times journalist chicago white supremacist. In the new york. Times a few weeks ago. Well technically she said i host. I regularly host white supremacist. Jason geel so she also said. The name i show was the dave rubin show. We couldn't even get them to create but she said that she was driving out on long island. I'm from long island. And she saw a lot of american flags and it shows the racist of america. These racist people who are losing power and it's like who lives in reality like i don't know i grew up around. It's actually quite an ethnically mixed area because its proximity to new york city so you get sort of these second generation. People struggled lived in brooklyn queens. Two generations ago. Now they're middle class. You got a great mix of people. They're proud of america. Could could that possibly be that they might have american flags that have nothing to do with white supremacy but it's like you live in a delusional world and it's up to us to be like well how do we. How do we react in a world. That is delusional. I don't know exactly what the answer is to that. I think if you just kind of remain sane. That's pretty good dave. We'll have the answer to that question in our subscriber portion. We have more subscriber questions. Maybe he won't coming up. We got some questions from subscribers. We're going to address their in the subscriber portions slip into our smoking jackets. Slip into our smoking jackets and not smoke and not smoke so we go. Yeah all right how about.

You're okay thank you. Yeah neither has ever envisioned ourselves being interviewers just right to gather where we each have interview interviewer but not even not even. That doesn't feel like everybody has to be an interviewer at this. Do you know anyone that doesn't have a podcast pretty much. They're more podcasts. Than people at this point like everyone has three podcast. Nobody's listening to any of these things anymore. It's enough out there live. I got in before the four cool. No actually we were. We were way after five years. I'm still amazed that people listen to it. Like i'm like every every day that the numbers are rising and like well are we doing this If you build it they will come. You know if you're if you're doing something original that really is the truth like people people will come around. I'm amazed every time i see this week. I saw some fairly popular launched podcast launching. Not even going to say who was but somebody that we all know in this world launched. A podcast and i was like. Oh because yes. We needed more podcast. I saw the office. Ladies launched a podcast awhile ago. And then i noticed all these. Tv stars from like yes he started doing like i'm the guy from family matters. John's great actor course in dire. Carl carl carl's a bag in. Carl carl's like the terrorist guy with a brother right. What was his name was karl. Maybe maybe they're both carla. Can't bob got in trouble for this before we were talking about. Die hard officer. India hard we gotta eat twinkies. Yeah car lovable. Name in sergeant. How carl's name. Yeah carl's from the blonde haired guy rex at the end. I only because they have. That means carl duty black cops and it's him you know really. I don't know that means no was a black in this petition. That is true this christmas movie. Yeah so we had some really important stuff. Talk about So like we wanted to ask you who wins in a death match. We have a couple matchups. We're going right into it. Jordan peterson versus chain-link. Wieger new girl younger. Whatever i mean. peterson wins. Obviously he's lanky. He's told the region obviously seems frail. The only i mean the one thing. I- janke sort of an amorphous. Fat blob i suppose and would get caught. You know one of those punch the real fat blob guy and then your hand gets stuck in there and then you know that whole thing but i feel like jordan would be quick enough on his feet to to be able to put down the blob and use a lot of mind games. There would be a lot of trickery and try it again to get is a jank jank so it's almost like jank kids mean when the kids say jank that means it's all wacky. I cannot believe that you ever you ever thank you. Look back on life and you go. I really can't believe i did that. That's how i feel about that experience. Well let's talk about that for the next forty minutes. But we gotta get this buzz. Also ben shapiro versus seven weasels easel folks. The seven is getting me on was surrounded. Circling there circling. He's fast. I feel like he could use the yarmulke to maybe take out one like in some sort of her throwing star the right By any of them the weasels have the height advantage. That's an mouth. The issue really is could the weasels. Combine into one super as transformer construct cons. Weren't that strong but together. They form devastator I'll give it. i'll give it to shapiro. He's lived through twitter mobs and other such things if think what he does is. He grabs to weasels snaps their spines to weasel trucks and takes out the rest of to not the craziest thing i've ever roseanne barr versus stacey abrams. Oh god we know who would have claimed they won her roseanne versus abrahams Wa tell you this. Roseanne smokes a lot of weed..

"He's really into longevity and so car accidents or like you know one of the highest reasons why you would have shortened lifespan. So one of my basketball heroes growing up. Dr patronage from the new jersey nets died on the autobahn. It was life. There you go all right so as we continue down this road. The number one question that now i think we were talking for like an hour and forty minutes and we have asked you yet. Everyone wants to know. What do you think about bitcoin. So that was talking about everything else. This was a hell of a lead in that you did there. That was amazing. So i honestly believe this all the future. So what does that mean so first off. Let me say. I cannot talk about bitcoin at the technical level. That is going to impress you at any level whatsoever or any of your viewers if i get into any of this like it's not my world and into world that i'm just can you talk to us about the minor signaling for tap root i can activate extensive dissertation on that specifically the idea of decentralized. Finance is so connected to everything that we've talked about here and a bottom up economy and that people need the ability to have unfettered access to the goods and services and people that they want to communicate with without central banks without federal reserve. And all of those things. That is where i can sort of do this at like. This is so obviously the answer. It's so obviously the answer. All the specifics on what the best coins are. And all that kind of stuff is not my thing. However i will say that as we're building locals like we're working on all sorts of decentralized payments right now and trying to figure out subscription models with with different cryptos which is extremely complex because obviously the prices are going up and down and all that i have some bitcoin. It's lies i owned quite all right. I have seven bitcoin. Do you seven yeah. They were all given to me by the way. I never spent a dime on bitcoin way. What very well. Because very early on when i left the patriot thing and i did that people because a lot of my audiences libertarians and they were like they put a bitcoin. Wallet up there and i put up while it up and people would give me little bits here and there and i was just like all right. Let's see what happens and this is kind of fun like three hundred thousand dollars and now i've got seven of them. It's on a ledger. And the ledgers upstanding. And i got the thing in the thing. You're further along than most yeah. Do you remember the first time you hear about going. I think it was. It was right when we left. So i twenty seven patrons two thousand sixteen twenty sixteen very early on. Because i remember yeah. I do remember. We relieving patriot on and i was. I had a pay pal page that you go to donate or whatever think i'd pay pow. And maybe that was even before stripe and my libertarians. That were in my comment section. The dave bitcoin. Bitcoin open wallet over. And i really what it was but like but what was cool about. It was like i was like. Oh well here. Are these people who like whatever it is. I'm talking about. And i'm talking about freedom and free speech and state's rights and all of these things and low taxes and blah blah and. They're all into something so there's got to be something here so that was sort of how i kinda entered this world and now it's like well now i'm in it because we got tech company.

"Can't do it but the point is beyond those things and then the very almost never use laws around slander slander and liable. Which are pretty much. Never used because they're so strict. There's no such thing as hate speech you're allowed to say i don't like jews. I would prefer that people not say it. But you're allowed to say like black people. I don't like gay people but you can't say go kill all those black people or or that sort of thing so the point is we've now asked technology companies to do things that the united states government has decided. It can't do so it's like we're trying to empower them in some ways to be more powerful so parlor basically was just like we're not gonna you do whatever the hell you want to do on here. Then the january six capital riots happen and then really what happened that nobody's written a proper story on. Is that the answer. Five or six days later was to blow up the parlor servers. So and what does that mean so amazon. Just took down the parlor server that. I don't know what that you probably know boring. The me is that a button. Is there a button amazon. Said blow of something. I don't know coming next. i think the next. I'm not kidding. Actually but the next version of this information war is that they will literally blow up server farms but putting aside that for us cry. That's good for the decentralized people so we're doing all right But but i don't know i honestly don't know what how does amazon just shy to shut down the on. Aws like ec two instance or does that pulling the plug like. I don't know what you're doing there. It's a button. Depends on where they do it. They probably have multiple ways server right. But i would like to think it's something dramatic not just like tapping a button like you would like to be like some more button than physically over. Rose seven in this danner. Pull the plug that actually but that for the movie version of seems better than bob. Go in seven for who servers at offutt anyway. What happened there. When amazon did that was a massive amazon. Do that was a massive escalation. Because this wasn't like kicking off individual people or kicking off a group or even kicking off the president of the united states which was happening at the exact same time. This was saying this entire network of twenty. Three million people cannot be online and subsequently what we've found out. Now i mean there's many articles written about this is that there was far more coordination for the january six events regardless of what you think about them far more coordination on facebook than on parlor so if anything was supposed to be blown up..

"I it was. Jack enjoy ruegen. Yeah and then conversation. And then there's a second episode. Tim pool joe rogan. Jack and i forget the woman's name but she runs like i m kind of policy like she sees the lawyers who like really into like to stay doesn't whatever i actually took away from that conversation. I think i listened to it twice or choice way more complex than most people give it. Credit in terms like zalesak. Whatever the second thing was like they actually have some like good frameworks for how they evaluate. How can apply. You can debate or or whatever and it seemed to me like the classic example of like jack twitter and the team is on one side like tim pool really it was like a and then they kind of like. Maybe they didn't meet in the middle they got a lot closer to them. The conversation i biggest takeaway from the whole thing was like man who disagree if they just sat down to talk to each other like the world would be so much further ahead. It was incredible discussion. Actually all all. I would say on that so we don't get to lessen jack is it just seems to me. He should probably have some other job that they should probably have someone. That's a little more engaged in a little more. I think you'd like to step further. I think he's publicly said that he nor does he want twitter to be in the position of making this decision. It's like the holy day if you boot if you donald trump and you're the ceo of the company then dryer so okay okay. We jack dole talk shit about jack. I don't think he's a bad. That's the problem that all of us in public thing put in. It's like you have to have opinions about. Yeah we have opinions about the after we have. Here's the other thing that i will say this really fascinating and maybe jack's actually a pretty good example. Humans are really complex because we live in a complex world and so in some crazy way. I bet you if you ask jack. And he may kelly sinus but if you asked him he could probably with great accuracy. Say here's my beliefs on bitcoin. Here's my beliefs on free speech. Here's my beliefs on. Twitter is my beliefs on square..

"Also like did any of this. Make us more social. you know. It's called social media. It actually made far more antisocial and hateful and distrustful. That's why i'm so proud of what we did with locals. Because i opened my locals account freaking love in there it is love and good and decent and i think it's the promise of what social media was supposed to be. I'm not telling you. It's all perfect. And again i don't believe in perfect systems but like something that is happening in the way. We are all communicating on twitter and facebook and youtube is just wrong and by the way. That's why i'd never call for regulating them. Because the second you freaking regulate these things you solidify their existence in the system forever well and the regulation makes it worse and it'll crush competition. I don't think people understand that. There's someone close to me. Who says the the people who do. The cancelling will stop when they get cancelled. Yeah right it's all fun and games. It's all somebody turns it on you. Well that's you see. That's always the best when you see these lefties who have. I don't wanna make everything about politics. But when you see these people that have spent their lives trying to destroy everybody who they disagree with by calling them bigots and racists and everything that make them make it so that they can't get jobs and we're going to ruin your life and everything else and then it suddenly turns on them. And it's like i mean sometimes i'm like maybe this one does seem unjust. Defend them and i'm like you know we only have a certain a certain amount of ammo. There's all these problems. You went independent when the idea of what was it was a couple steps independent so i left a few networks originally left. The young turks than i was on ora tv which was a digital network.

Like i consider myself a thriving person not a perfect person but i consider myself a thriving person. Why would you wanna be in government. Why would i want to be in the thing. That's there to control people which by the way. That's why you get horrible people in government. They can't really so andrew hang. I think is really interesting because he sort of loved in our circles. And i always think it's really bizarre like why aren't you doing more than why aren't you building. Great tech in great things. Why do you keep wanting to go into government. It doesn't really make sense to me like you failed presidential bid then you went to georgia because you wanted to help the democrats win which i guess did happen. It did happen now. You're running for mayor doesn't look like that's gonna happen. I guess after this. He's going to run again. It's like you seem like all the tech people seem to wake you or yeah. I don't really either. I can sort of read your i think. I think it's all right. good. I have a story. Heels threw me under the bus in the new york times. Okay because the questioner asked said why do you go on these right wing. Shows like like the dave rubin show which isn't even a show. That's not the name show. Where he raised. The quote was where he regularly hosts white supremacists and not only did gang. Not push back on that But he basically was like well. If the lefties would be nicer. I wouldn't have to do shows like that. And i was like. What's your policy on cursing basically like fuck you man like. That's that's such why people think you're just a cardboard nothing because like you beg not against. He begged me too much of he wanted to do my show. I was thrilled to have him. I treated him with the same respect. I treat everybody else and now a new york times person basically calls me a white supremacist. And you kind of you. Don't say just gross all right. So here's my us just one either. I could read it from you. Just buy your eyebrow basically was like well here. here's why i don't know him. Yeah so i have to carry. I've never had a one on one conversation with like in all these situations i'm always like the best thing ever would be that you could sit down with. Each candidate have an hour long meal with them and walkway. big artists. Vote like tulsi gabbard. I did that with her on the show. And i freaking love turn good friends.

"Well at this point i would say as i define things before where you're sort of woke or conservative. I would say the center. The center is if you think that the constitution is decent at the founding of america. I'm doing this from an american perspective. Let's say if you think. The founding of america was good if you think individual rights are good if you think rule of law is good. The bill of rights are good that we have god given rights so the government didn't give us right. It can protect them and then whether we agree on marginal tax rates or the estate tax the wealth tax or even abortion or any of those. Things are irrelevant. So that's the fight right now so i would say most almost everybody. Except except the antifa foot soldiers that are literally burning down cities and then the journalists on msnbc and cnn and then sort of the big tech oligarchs that can figure out ways to us against each other. That's the woke thing am and then there's like an academic version of obviously there's a lot of brainwashing at colleges. Most of us are the first thing most of us are just like live and let live. This place is pretty good. It ain't perfect. We can acknowledge that we can always make it better. But i don't want your stuff. I'm not entitled like most people really understand. Most people are rational. Actors brash self interest. But i mean that really. Most people are decent. I fundamentally believe that. But i don't believe that the machine is decent and what the left you seem to believe is if we could just give the machine enough power if bernie just have enough power or now biden if he could just take more from some people if we could just fix all these things in the history that he never fixed biden been in politics for forty seven years he did. He never mentioned systemic racism before now. It's his life. 'cause it's like come on so you either believe that humans are imperfect creatures and that we can just deal with the mess that you're gonna figure out your life the best way you know how and i'm just not entitled to your stuff and if you make a lot of more than maybe i can look at that as the star that i want to get to. If that's important to me or you believe that a bunch of imperfect creatures can create a perfect system. And that's what these people are doing. I mean this. This is marxism. They basically want a whole bunch of flawed people. We're all flawed to create a system. That if you just behave within that system if you act as a cog in that.

You're obviously buttering me up before we get into the the tough stuff, but <hes> you know it's. It's an odd thing for me because I don't consider myself. Particularly controversial I don't consider myself someone that courts. Anger or hostility or or even fame in a weird way. I'm just saying what I think. I talked to people that I think are interesting, and then, and then on that journey I've been honest about how I've changed certain beliefs, or how I have refined certain things or how I think differently, or how those all of all of that stuff, how that has just incorporated into my life, and now running several businesses and having employees, and all of those things, and you know through doing all that I think something. Something good has sort of magically appeared, and the fact that you know people say what you just said to me pretty often that you know. I help them maybe I introduce them to Jordan. And then, through Jordan, they were able to fix something in their life or not, even just about Jordan and self help, specifically, maybe their own political evolution, maybe something about belief or lack of belief or philosophy. If I've had anything to do with anyone's ability to. Pilfer a little more happiness or find a little more purpose in the world. That's that's pretty frequent spectacularly well I. think it's because it's rooted in a couple of things. It's rooted in authenticity which I think is lacking in so many. Bastions so many corners of our world, and so I think that's something I. Definitely learned from doing this show and I think any modicum of success. That I've had on this show in from the feedback that I've got from. Is and where I saw the turning point was. I just need to be authentic and transparent. I'm not trying to be an interviewer. I'm not trying to be something that I'm not and I. See that in you, even reading in your book and knowing what about your history and it wasn't that long ago to be quite honest and I love your story where you had the conversation with Larry Elder, and where you had the courage in the Tennessee to stay. You know what I kind of got. beat up here, let's. Play it as it is I. Think even your producer at the time. Whoever it was said Hey, we'll cut that out.

Well I describe it as as my best and worst career moment at the exact same time you know it was my worst for obvious reasons. Right I came to a fight. In this case, it intellectual fight over systemic racism and I wasn't armed with facts so when I said sort of the default setting thing the Idaho will systemic racism exists meaning it's built into the system. There are laws about it about the racist laws in the system, the American system itself I just said it as if. By the fact that I'm saying it must inherently be true. Larry, then just as I say in the book he beat me senseless with facts fact, after fact after fact, and I guess the moment that for a lot of people with special, there is that you can sort of see me. Take the hit. I didn't I didn't attack him. Personally attack him I didn't end the interview any of that stuff I just kind of sat there with it. And then when the interview closed as you said, I went into the control room, and several producers were in there. At the time it was before we were completely independent, and everybody said Dave. Don't worry about it. We're going to cut that. And I really didn't have to think about it I was just like. Is You know what if I'm doing anything worthwhile? If this has any meaning whatsoever, we have to leave it and I. Know I'm not GonNa.

I am so glad that you're joining us today, because I have a very special guest Dave Rubin is with me today to talk about some of the controversy around his show and what he's doing, and I am I was been a wild day, but how you doing, man? Jason, I'm very controversial person. They're going to be mucking up a lot of controversy in the next hour. But before anything can I just say, you have an incredible team here because they knew what kind of milk, I like what my cough? Yeah, no no milk credible. I mean is not so much mad. But I mean, Amy's pretty. Absolutely amazing. You stick with Aker. I'm just along for the right. Yeah. That's what you need somebody along for the ride to. Well, you know, we the last time we spoke quite a while back on your show, a couple of years ago, and you were really killing it, then, and now things have just exploded for you. A million subscribers now on YouTube, despite you tubes best efforts, despite everybody's best efforts, right? You just continue to grow, and I remember I remember thinking when how unique what you do is because most cases, the contra, the comp controversies that that's required to build a show as large as yours, especially in a can of the arena of politics and thought is typically has to be very abrasive. And yet you've chosen a line, where you really take some of the most interesting people in sit down and just give them kind of a chance to share their ideas. And there is. There is. I want I don't want to. It's not like it's not like a softball interview. It's, it's not. But there is this sense that, hey, you really get a chance to see what that individual. What that guy believes that girl believes? And, and you give them the, the birth without challenge without, I guess, without argument, I would say without without judgment. There is less than challenge, because I'm not judging my guests truly now, sometimes someone will say something sort of bananas. And, you know, if you hear something that sounds kind of crazy to you, you have to kind of readjust, and it may change where you go with the next question, or that sort of thing. But I've never once tried to play Gotcha with a guest, so it's not that I'm not challenging them in that look. I've had Ben Shapiro on my show, who has an orthodox Jewish background. So he is. He is not four-game arid. Let's say at a personal level, but take some more libertarian approach when it comes to government, my show is in my home where I lived with my husband. This is something that is obviously very personal to me yet, I'm able to have that. Discussion with him where we get into the ins and outs of it. I've talked about I'm against the death penalty. Dennis Prager is for it. I mean a bunch of different things, I'm against forcing the Baker to bake the, the gay wedding cake. I've had many lefties on my show that are that are for it and a series of other things. But so I don't think it's not about it's not about, not challenging as much as trying to figure out why someone believes what they believe. And I'm never trying to bludgeon someone into believing what I believe, like I really do believe if you let somebody talk, you can figure out if they know what they're saying why they think something. And also, if if they don't know what they're saying. You'll kind of watch them go through that, that long, winding road and end up nowhere often end up sort of back behind where they were in the first place, but it's funny because, you know, it seems that I'm somehow controversial these days and truly the goal of my show, when we started was to break down the controversy I was trying to get away from the madness. And now I've somehow been thrust right into the middle of it, which probably the most. Nineteen thing possible, you know, and a lot of people, I don't think no your whole story of where you come from and how you ended up doing a show in your home. But you started out, it was all the way back with the young Turks. Right. Was really kind of where it started for you..
