Berkeley “Braces” For Ben Shapiro | DIRECT MESSAGE | Rubin Report

173

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks about the protests of Ben Shapiro’s talk at UC Berkeley and the importance of free speech on campus. “Instead of silencing speakers on campus perhaps do what you’re supposed to in college instead: listen to someone who thinks differently than you do. This way you will learn how to think…and instead of having to brace yourself for bad ideas, you can arm yourself with good ones.”

Update: The New York Times published an article defending Ben Shapiro and calling out Antifa, the article was published after we taped this Direct Message – https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/12/opinion/conservative-berkeley-ben-shapiro.html

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.
