Society has become way too polarized these days. We’ve reached the point where ideas that have arbitrarily been deemed to be “hate speech,” because hypothetically someone COULD hear that speech and then decide to kill Jews or trans people solely because of said speech, must be censored and shut down. Mostly it’s radicals on college campuses shutting down people like Milo or Ben Shapiro by throwing childish hissy fits at speaking engagements. But those guys are 100% conservative. What would happen if some middle of the road, free thinking classical liberal came to a college campus?
Well, we found out last week at the University of New Hampshire that the exact same thing would in fact happen. This is Dave Rubin:
Dave is a gay, Jewish comedian and political commentator, who was a lifelong democrat and used to work for The Young Turks. So logically you’d assume that someone like him would be welcomed on college campuses to speak.
But more than anything Dave is a free speech activist. And for years it was the right that tried to censor “offensive” speech (porn, porn, and more porn). However, in the last 10 years the roles have reversed, and it’s radical leftists who seem hell bent on crushing any speech they disagree with, and consequently Dave left the left. So he’s become this rare voice of reason and moderation. He doesn’t want open borders, he thinks hate speech is a made up subjective term, and he also thinks pot should be legal and abortion is a decision women should grapple with on their own.
I went to UMass last week and saw him speak in the same hall where Trigglypuff became famous two years prior. It was great. He brought out a good crowd of people of all political persuasions and Dave engaged respectfully with all of them. There were no protests, no shouting down, no censorship. It renewed my faith in free speech at college campuses.
Then the next day he went to speak at UNH and this happened:
Yea, the linked arms and blockaded entrance to the speaking engagement, so that Dave Rubin could not incite, “acts of racism, xenopohbia, and transphobia.” They brag about “silencing Dave Rubin.” On a college campus this is something to brag about – silencing a gay Jewish man whose opinions have deviated from the script. This is the world we live in now – a place where people think it’s virtuous to physically silence other human beings who they disagree with. Because allegedly their words could potentially incite acts of racism.
You can pretty much apply this to anyone of course. If I don’t like what you’re saying all I would have to do is say, “your words could provoke violence against (pick one – gay, trans, black, disabled, etc) people,” and I’d be allowed to prevent you from speaking in public. It wouldn’t matter if there was any basis for this. All you have to do is believe this and it’s true.
Anyway, about 50 people were kept out of the speech, most of whom were elderly and didn’t feel like fighting through a bunch of people who were bigger and stronger than them. This is what Nazis did – they used physical threats to silence opposition.
The speech was supposed to be in another arena but they had to move it after “security concerns” to the hockey arena. But the show did go on, and it was one of the best 70 minutes of entertainment I’ve ever seen. I understand most of you don’t have 70 minutes to set aside, but I suggest you find the time because it will be worth it. And if you can’t, we’ll sum it up for you below the video:
And here’s some highlights:
We had no intention of releasing the video from my U. of New Hampshire event because it was such a circus and I’m not interested in fanning flames. However since usual suspects are making up lies, we will release the unedited, entire thing. Couple promos coming… pic.twitter.com/hcGGhEsdaJ

So much to say about this, so I’ll make this quick:
- The fact that these people are even qualified to attend a university is remarkable. Many of them could not put together a coherent sentence, never mind a complete thought.
- It’s so great because Rubin remains so calm and poised while dealing with people who are clearly psychopaths. No matter how crazy or unreasonable they were, he attempted to hear their point of view and engage with them. No one could leave there playing the “I was victimized by Dave Rubin” card, even though many of them will.
- What I loved about this is how he never got the cops or security to remove anyone, even though he was well within his rights to, since they were disrupting an assembly. Instead he let them make his point for them through their childish behavior.
- This was likely by design by Rubin. He knew exactly how these people would respond to his reasonable opinions, and he still got the exact same reaction Shapiro or Milo would’ve. It proved that they believe that anyone who doesn’t 100% subscribe to everything they believe in must be shut down.
- This should be mandatory viewing for serious classical liberals. If you want to win the election in 2020, understand the damage that these people are doing to the left. Dave Rubin is a moderate free thinker. Any middle of the road voter who watched that would like him and sympathize with him. And millions and millions of people watch videos like this.
- Behavior like this is a HUGE factor in how Trump got elected, because Trump is winning the culture war. If you had to choose between Trump and those animals, you’d likely pick Trump. Not because you think Trump is great, but because this is the alternative.
- A big problem for the left is that there is no equivalence of this on the right. Liberal speakers do not get shut down by right wing radicals. Ever. If Van Jones came to speak at UNH and a mob of racist klansman showed up and shouted him down it would make Van Jones a sympathetic individual. Middle of the road people who you need to win elections would be more likely to support liberalism because they’d associate the right with censorship and racism.
With that said, here’s Top 10 Wokest And Batshit Insane UNH SJW Protesters……
10. “The Supreme Court be doing stupid shit” dude.
That guy was NOT fucking around. He simply could not understand how Dave Rubin would point to a SCOTUS decision saying that hate speech isn’t a real thing. After all, 150 years ago they fucked up the Dred Scott decision. Those are the same people on the court today right?
Dave asked him, “What law do we have against you that is not against me?”
His response – “There was a case where two rapists raped someone and the white person got 3 months and the black person got 18 years.”
So……there are no laws that discriminate. You just pulled an anecdote from an unnamed rape case in which the black person got more time than the white person. We know nothing about the details of this case, which would probably let us evaluate if it was in fact racist. But the dude had an anecdote so…..BOOM. Roasted.
This quote was amazing:
“There was a person lynched two days ago, so I don’t wanna hear this bullshit about hate speech does not exist. For you it doesn’t, because you have privilege. You can get called homophobic and anti-semitic words and walk outside and be fine. If I get called the n word I could get shot.”
It’s amazing the fantasy world these people have created in their heads. There was someone lynched two days ago? Who? Where? Oh right, you literally just made that up because you are devoid of facts. And Dave has privilege because because gay and Jewish people have never been killed before. Just black people. So it’s OK to call him racial and homophobic slurs because he’ll survive, but you can’t call her racial slurs because obviously the next step is getting shot in the head.
8. Can girl
Think of how weak minded you have to be to show up to a debate where the speaker wants to engage with people like you who disagree with him, and all you can think is, “better bring my can of nickels to rattle for 5 minutes straight.” He’s literally up there saying things like, “I think everyone should be equal under the law” and this brilliant young mind was like, “I’m gonna shake my can to silence him.” Woke city!!
7. “We are not the problem”
Excuse me sir/ma’am, the only problem here is that cliche angry gym teacher haircut. And yea, you actually are the problem. You have nothing of value or substance to say, so instead you’re just chanting “We are not the problem” over and over and over again. But the problem is the thought police are trying to stop reasonable people like Dave Rubin from speaking to people at a college whose job it is to expose students to differing viewpoints. So yea, you are 100% the problem.
6. “Solidarity against hate”
Thank God they established that. Because prior to their inspired declaration against hate Dave Rubin was up there talking about how much he hates black people and the Jews and the gays. Oh wait, he’s a gay Jewish man who said everyone should be equal and talked about how much he likes Candice Owens. Turns out the only hateful people in the audience are with them. They hate everyone and everything that doesn’t align with their narrow world view.
5. The never ending question chick
“So I just had a question, about how you said we shouldn’t be passing laws against speech that could be hateful because it’s limiting people’s freedoms. But I think what I wanted to ask was so you said that limiting free speech to some degree do you think that could mean that once you pass one law that’s limiting something for free speech could turn into “oh” then you’re limiting another thing for free speech and you enter a whirlwind and you live in a society where people can’t say anything, because I feel like it’s too, whats the worst I want to use, it’s too like up in there to say you cant say this thing you cant say that thing, so the government has to take a very like, like, do you know what I’m trying to say?”
Up until this point I thought she was on his side. Turns out the question was just getting started and got interrupted by the “we are not the problem” mongoloids….
“And then I feel like you could get to the point where just like nothing could be said. If you had concerns that like Trump was a white supremacist. If you had people saying Trump’s a racist or a white supremacist. Which is like, a very fair point to say because I disagree with a ton of shit that he says. He says like, the stupidest shit ever. But if those people get in like the majority of government and then they’re passing laws that you can’t preach for equality. I feel like you cant have these like subjective laws.”
“He says, like, the stupidest shit ever.” – 19 year old who can’t use words.
Seriously though, these people think the Nazis are a majority of our population and not a fringe group of a couple thousand radicals. It’s amazing the imaginary world they’ve cooked up in their heads.
The end of the question was my favorite….
Like hate speech is always wrong, but then like if you had this majority fascist like or totally racist group in place, then they’re gonna try to pass like, “Oh, well you cant say everyone can be equal, well now we’re gonna have these like, white supremacy laws in place, is that the point you’re trying to make?”
Her basic lack of understanding of how a government functions and how laws are created is remarkable. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 has been renamed the, “Oh, well everyone can be equal because like we can’t have white supremacy” law.

4. “If it was up to the states we’d have slavery” lady
She actually said that. In 2018 places like Tennessee would still have slavery if given the choice. Remarkable. I just can’t believe this woman is attending a debate on political speech, when she looks like she should be lamenting about her losing Keno tickets at the Kas Bar,
3. How dare you misgender me!!
“You’re a fucking liar. If you can’t respect our community get the fuck out!!”
“Why are you supporting the right to misgender people.”
Someone else –
“But Dave is gay”
“I’m only gay after 10.”
Anyone else notice a trend that the outspoken members of the transgender community all seem to be filled with over the top anger and hatred? It’s almost like they have a mental disease. I know, I know. It’s VERY controversial to suggest that this 300 pound male with a penis might be mentally imbalanced because he’s insisting that people refer to him as a woman (which Dave Rubin did). But as Dave pointed out, who would want to live in a world where the government could send you to jail for not using the right pronouns. The fact that anyone thinks it’s a good thing to give the goverment the power to compel certain speech is insane.
2. Black Lives Matter
That’s it? You crackers got your protest shoes on to come down and go head to head with this Nazi, and all you could come up with is “black lives matter?” Kind of takes the steam out of your sail when the guy you’re protesting says, “I agree with you. Black lives do matter.”
But of course they kept chanting anyway, because these are very, very stupid people. People who lack the ability to reason or think. All they can do is repeat three words over and over and over again, while an actual adult was attempting to engage other adults in an intellectual conversation. Once again, Dave could’ve had them removed for making it impossible for him to speak for five minutes, but he let them continue because his goal was to show the world how insane many on the left have become.
1. “Pay me for my opinion” chick
That is why you don’t give these people the mic. Because they won’t give it back. Because they MUST monopolize the conversation.
I can’t believe he let this crotch fruit speak for so long, but I’m so glad he did. She was amazing. Here’s some of her greatest hits:
“Do I have to get lynched or killed for you to say that hate speech is bad.”
Their infatuation with the idea that they are about to die at any moment is fantastic. Of course they don’t really believe this or else they’d get the fuck out of this dangerous country. They just want to pretend like they’re about to die so they can play the victim card.
Dave then asks her to tell him in what way she is oppressed. Her response was perfect:
“I have no reason to sit and talk with you about my own oppression, because that’s just like mental energy. Unless I’m going to get paid to talk about my oppression.
Yup. She pulled a Didi and demanded reparations. Of course she did this for 2 reasons – 1) she knows she’s not actually oppressed and has no examples, and 2) she has no intent in participating in a honest discussion. She’s there for the one liners.
So Dave offered her money…
“If you wanna tell me about your oppression I’ll give you $20”
She didn’t even have to respond – the mob did for her….
“It’s worth more than that asshole!!”
“How bout I pay you to shut up home boy?”
Oh yea, these people are totally NOT Nazis. Totally.
“Dave, what’s your background?”
There it is – identity politics. The only move they have besides victimization.
Dave told her that his ancestors died in the Holocaust, but luckily she was there to check his privilege:
“Your ancestors are rolling in their graves.”
Excellent point! His ancestors who were brought to concentration camps and executed because of their religion would be VERY upset to find out that young Dave was encouraging equality and free speech on college campuses. The horror!!
Finally Dave had enough playing nice….
“You’re not oppressed, you’re entitled.”
Bingo. This woman right here:
Has had everything handed to her her entire life. Not once has she ever had to struggle. Not once has she ever felt oppressed. She’s clearly not very intelligent, yet she got into UNH over people who are much, much smarter than her.
“I am a double major and I do research for major organizations”
Whoa!!! Genius alert!! A double major? That’s way more than one major. And obviously it proves that you are a mental giant. We’re all impressed. VERY impressed.
Then she got ratchet….
“Whoever wants to shit talk me, your opinion literally means nothing to me.”
Yea guys, she totally doesn’t care about your opinion. That’s why she’s here to call you racist for having opinions.
Anyway, like I said, these people are the reason Trump will win again. It’s a foregone conclusion at this point. As a political moderate I’d like to see a good race. But the fact of the matter is that videos like this and Trigglypuff are widely seen and distributed by millions of people. They see what college campuses have become, and they want to vote for whoever these people don’t want you to vote for. If the liberals want the power back, you just have to do what Obama did with these trolls:
Luckily this is a free country and people like Dave Rubin and Turtleboy are popular because we’re delivering a message that people want to hear. These nutjobs will never com to power because the rest of us are actually pretty level headed.
