Why Wasn't I Told This About Conservatives? (Pt. 2) | James Lindsay | ACADEMIA | Rubin Report
Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to James Lindsay, author of Cynical Theories about how an issue with diversity hiring was the first thing that clued him in to the growing problems of wokeness, his recent red pill moment, and why the useful idiots of woke culture may be more dangerous than the woke. In this clip James explains why he still considers himself to be a liberal and apolitical. He also shares what it’s been like to work with so many “evil conservatives” and how he feels like leftist propaganda misled him on what real conservatives were actually like. He shares what it was like for a liberal to attend events like CPAC, and Turning Point USA. James also clarifies what both liberals and conservatives get wrong about the critical race theory debate.
