The Sad Moment I Realized College Had Made Me Liberal (Pt.1)| Eric Metaxas | POLITICS | Rubin Report


Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Eric Metaxas (TV Show Host, Author, Speaker) about how colleges have become progressive indoctrination factories, why evangelical christians should support Donald Trump, and what it’s like to be a Trump supporter in New York City. Eric discusses how despite being a conservative child of immigrants, he was slowly converted to being a liberal progressive at Yale University. He shares the two moments that he began to realize how much he had changed his politics. He also describes what his immigrant father who fled communism thought of his Vladimir Lenin propaganda poster. He shares how the current woke and progressive groupthink on college campuses is not a recent development, as he recounts his progressive college experiences in the 1980s. Eric also details the dream that changed his life and caused him to leave the left and find Christianity and conservatism.
