On Wednesday's episode of "The Rubin Report," host Dave Rubin said he believes everything he's been warning against, fighting against, and even wrote a book against, is unfortunately happening now.

Dave discussed Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones, who agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be "deprogrammed" and punished before the country should "move on to reconciliation."

"There are millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans, who somehow need to be deprogrammed. It's as if they are members of a cult, the Trumpist cult, and have to be deprogrammed," Robinson said on MSNBC Tuesday.

"Do you have any idea how we start that process?" he asked Hannah-Jones.

"There has to be consequences. And then once you get those consequences … people have to take a second look at their actions, and they have to be afraid to do the types of violence that we saw last week," Hannah-Jones suggested. "What has long been the case in this country, is that we have wanted to quickly move on to reconciliation. We've always been afraid that if you actually punish those kind of white nationalist elements in our society, it will only make things worse. But, in fact, what history shows is not reacting, not forcing accountability, only emboldens those people and those movements."

Dave also talked about a controversial op-ed in Forbes, in which the magazine's chief content officer, Randall Lane, warned companies not to hire Trump officials, including White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and former press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

"Let it be known to the business world: Hire any of Trump's fellow fabulists above, and Forbes will assume that everything your company or firm talks about is a lie," Lane wrote. "We're going to scrutinize, double-check, investigate with the same skepticism we'd approach a Trump tweet. Want to ensure the world's biggest business media brand approaches you as a potential funnel of disinformation? Then hire away."

This went so well when they tried it in Kampuchea.

Consequences for thee, but none for me.

You mean like the kind of violence we saw during last summer’s Floyd Fest? That summer of love in Seattle and Portland? What about the nonsense we saw here in my neck of the woods in Minneapolis? You mean consequences like those where violent protestors burned down half a city and got away with it? You mean like when ANTIFA and BLM raided the capitol and are being labeled Trump Supporters?

There have to be consequences? You mean like when Joe Biden and the deep state rigged the election and we never got to have our evidence shown? You mean like when Obama and Biden spied on Trump and got away with it? You mean like when Hillary Clinton paid someone to push a fake dossier on Donald Trump for 4 fucking years and all we heard were lies about Russian Collusion? Do you mean the kind of consequences that Hillary got for Uranium One, and other scandals like our Ambassador murdered in LIbya?

Tell me about consequences because I can tell you right now that nobody that I have seen on the democrat’s side has been asked to resign for colluding with CHINA. Like Swalwell for instance or Dianne Feinstein, how come nobody asked them to resign?

I can tell you right now, the only consequences that the left is leaving us with now is in fact violence because being marginalized and lied to breeds that kind of irreconcilable differences that lead up to violent confrontation.

I expect politicians to lie. I expect media to lie. I guess I expected too much of the American people when I thought they would see through it.

Dak I can tell you that I too thought people would have seen through the shit. My significant other voted for Biden and to say that has caused a rift is a bit of an understatement. I am still pissed off about it because I honestly thought that she would understand why you don’t vote for traitors but she did it anyway because she hated Trump more courtesy of the media and the people she used to surround herself with.

I am still fucking angry with her about it, and to be honest if things go as horribly as I expect they will, I might have a late midlife crisis and replace her with someone younger.

Twelve strangers wake up in a clearing. They don't know where they are, or how they got there. They don't know they've been chosen - for a very specific purpose - The Hunt.
