Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, author of “Prey”, about how woke culture is destroying classical liberalism, how elites are finally acknowledging that immigration in Europe is backfiring, and how immigration policies in Europe have negatively impacted women’s rights and made Europe less safe for women. In this clip Ayaan talks about how liberalism is being weakened by the identity politics of the woke left.
She shares why James Lindsay and Helen Pluckrose’s book “Cynical Theories” is so vital to understanding our current political climate. She also discusses how wokeism has far more in common with radical Islam than many would think. Both engage in science denial, and the censorship of criticism.
She suggests that the only way to defend liberalism is to build alliances with centrist and moderate political opponents and create a new centrism. She states that young people should not be seeking out safe spaces at university, but should actually want to be triggered.
This is the first of a two-part series. We will run the conclusion later this week.
