Video: Why I left the Left

According to Dave Rubin, host of The Rubin Report, the “progressive” Left needs a new name that more accurately describes the movement.

In the video that follows, Rubin, who considers himself a true liberal, says that we should call the “progressive Left” the “regressive Left.” Why? Because progressives today oppose free speech, freedom of religion, and diversity of thought. In other words, progressives have turned liberalism on its head. So if liberals don’t have a home on the Left, should they consider themselves conservatives?

Rubin explains.
