Dave Rubin’s Brain Fails On Tucker Carlson

Dave Rubin’s Brain Fails On Tucker Carlson


>>As wildfires rage in the state of California,
Dave Rubin has decided that as a person currently residing in the state, he is gonna go on Tucker
Carlson’s Fox show and show everyone that he can make anything about identity politics.>>PG&E strikes me as almost a metaphor for
the destruction of the state. So here’s the utility, which doesn’t really
know anything about its own infrastructure, but knows everything about the race of its
employees. How did we get there?>>Yeah, the problem right now is that everything,
everything, from academia to public utilities to politics. Everything that goes woke, that buys into
this ridiculous, progressive ideology that cares about what contractors are LGBT, or
how many black firemen we have, or white this, or Asian that. Everything that goes that road eventually
breaks down.>>That’s true.>>It is not real freedom is supposed to operate. What it’s supposed to happen, Tucker, imagine
if your house was on fire, would you care what the public utility, or what the fire
company, what contractor they brought in, what gender, or sexuality, or any of those
things he or she was? I mean, it’s just absolutely ridiculous.>>Who would care about something like that?>>And right now we’ve got-
>>Well, we’ve got a situation, of course you wouldn’t care.>>The fires in California have nothing to
do with diversity. Like the fact that he has made this tragedy
into some identity politics issue is beyond me. In reality, PG&E is a private company with
investors. And whenever you have a private company with
investors, what is the most important thing? What is the objective for those investors? Return on investment, right? The profit motive. And so they have not upgraded the power grid. They have not done what was necessary to ensure
that the power lines were secure, that they were safe. And as a result, they have gone bankrupt several
times, several times. Because they have been blamed, rightfully
so for a number of these wildfires. And so as a result of that liability and as
a result of the settlements that they’ve had to pay, they’ve had to go bankrupt. This has nothing to do with diversity. And I’m gonna go into the actual numbers,
and the details, and the facts in just a minute.>>So that’s a great point Anna. I just last night on The Conversation, which
is in the third hour of the Young Turks, I talked to Greg Palast exactly about this. And how poorly the utilities are run in Northern
California, because they’re private and nonpublic. And so you should check that interview out
at youtube.com/TYTconversation. Bu that’s the major point in terms of the
substance of the fires, and obviously climate change, which I’m gonna get to in a second. But in terms of the main point about this
appearance, do you see what they’re doing? Okay, so they always get somebody from that
group to attack itself, right? So Dave happens to check off a couple of boxes
here, but the most relevant one is at the end. So yes, he’s from California, he hilariously
pretends to be some sort of liberal. He says classic liberal.>>I’m a classical liberal.>>I’m a classical liberal.>>And I don’t know what that means and I
can’t answer any questions about it, but I’m gonna ahead and say I’m a classical liberal.>>I’m the Diet Coke of liberals. Okay, whatever you are dude, of coure you’re
not a liberal. It’s hilarious and preposterous. But the main reason he’s brought on is, if
you notice the first group he attacked was LGBT people. And Dave’s gay, so Tucker Carlson and Fox
News goes, get me a gay puppet, someone with no soul at all, who will betray the people,
the group that he’s in. Dave Rubin, perfect. What are we having him on for? We’re gonna blame the fires on gay people.>>No, it’s amazing, it is amazing. And for all the accusations that they lodge
toward the left regarding how they make every issue about identity and identity politics. In reality, the only person who I’ve seen
in the media who consistently relies on this identity politics argument, is Dave Rubin. It’s all he ever talks about. He talks about the fact that he’s gay married
over and over again. No one cares, Dave, right? What I do care about is, if you’re gonna go
on national television to do your little grifting maneuver, I mean in the very least, read something,
read something. How many times is this guy gonna go on national
television and embarrass himself by showing the entire world how unknowledgeable he is?>>But guys, did you, I mean, did you catch
the other part? He literally blamed black firefighters. No, it wasn’t climate change that has the
planet burning, all across the planet. The Siberian forest is on fire, the winter
forest of Alaska was on fire. We’ve had this top 16 hottest years in the
last 17 years. The whole planet is on fire, but Dave Rubin
and Tucker Carlson think that’s the fault of black firefighters.>>People who are literally putting their
lives at risk to fight these wildfires, right? They’re the ones that they’re gonna point
fingers at and blame. It’s just disgusting. It’s also disgusting to exploit a real tragedy
like this. I mean, so many people have lost their homes. In the case of the fire in Paradise, California,
about 85 people died. I mean, this is a serious issue. And whenever it comes to private industry,
something that Naomi Klein says and Cenk says it a lot on the show as well is, they will
privatize the gains, socialize the losses. And that’s exactly what’s happening in the
state of California right now. In fact, Governor Gavin Newsom has proposed
something that I completely disagree with. It is essentially a way of bailing out companies
like PG&E who refuse to spend their earnings on updating the power grid, and have decided
to pad their pockets with that money instead. So for instance, Gavin Newsom is proposing
a multibillion dollar wildfire fund to help California’s utilities, private utilities
specifically, cover mounting fire related liability costs that have threatened their
financial health.>>Is their financial health in trouble?>>No, this is-
>>What happened to capitalism?>>No, you guys, Gavin Newsom, I think this
is a terrible proposal, and he should be called out on it. Why are we bailing them out? Why should the California taxpayer bail out
a company that has destroyed the lives of so many in the state? Why?>>And we also have to pay for the cost of
the fire. So we have to pay for the cost of the fire,
they don’t pay for that cost. So if you’re wondering why we’re blaming the
utility, I mean, first of all their mismanagement in terms of having to turn off massive areas
of California’s power over and over again. I remember that’s what I loved about this
country when I first came. I was eight years old and I couldn’t, and
I had come from Turkey where we would have the power go out all the time. And I was like the power never goes out in
America, it’s an amazing place. So now we’re in a third world country, not
because of the public utilities, but because of the private companies.>>That’s exactly right.>>And it’s not just that, the cause of fires
is cuz if you don’t upgrade your equipment, it keeps falling in the forest, and that’s
what causes the fire a lot of times.>>So let me give you some-
>>And climate change makes it worse because of the wind patterns etc.>>The wind patterns in California we had
the, drought->>And the dryness.>>Yes, exactly, so let me give you some more
details on what PG&E is guilty of. And again, the idea of bailing them out is
ridiculous. So PG&E sought bankruptcy protection in January
after its role in sparking wildfires created more than $30 billion in potential liabilities. So rightfully so, they get sued, because they
haven’t upgraded their equipment. And they have to pay out these settlements,
and then they end up going bankrupt. Concerns about massive wildfire-related liability
costs are also weighing on California’s two other major investor-owned utilities, Edison
International’s Southern California Edison and Sempra Energy’s San Diego Gas and Electric. So last year’s Camp Fire, California’s deadliest
ever, killed 85 people and destroyed the town of Paradise. State investigators in May concluded that
PG&E equipment sparked the fire. They’re privately owned utilities. And this is the reason why we’re having this
issue in California right now, in addition to climate change which exacerbates it. So for him to say that it’s about diversity
and black firefighters is disgusting.>>By the way, this is not how capitalism
is supposed to work at all, as Greg Palast pointed out last night in the interview. You don’t have a choice of which utility you
can use. It’s not like you’re like, you know what I’m
in Northern California, I’m not gonna use PG&E, I’ll use the other brand. There is no other brand. There’s only one line that you could use for
power. So where’s the free market? That’s why a lot of these utilities are turned
into public utilities, cuz this is not a market that has natural competition. And Adam Smith wrote about this and everyone
who’s ever studied economics knows about this. But it doesn’t matter, we have such wholesale
corruption in this country. They’re like, remember after during the Iraq
war, they did no bid contracts for almost the entirety of the war for a decade, they
did no bid contracts. What part of that is capitalist? No, it’s all an excuse to enrich the elite
and the powerful.>>I’m not even done yet, okay, because this
number is important. State investigators have tied PG&E equipment
to 19 wildfires in the past two years. And homeowners, businesses, cities, insurers,
and others are seeking compensation for billions in damages from the company, an issue that
will now be resolved as part of the bankruptcy process. So they are guilty of sparking numerous fires. And how is Governor Gavin Newsom going to
help bail them out? Our utility bills are gonna have an extra
surcharge. Okay, no, no, no, all of these utilities should
be public. And there’s no reason why we should bail a
company that has not only destroyed people’s lives, but destroyed businesses. I mean, these blackouts in Northern California
have really hurt businesses in the area. For instance, there’s a Halloween store that
hasn’t had power in the most important week of the year.>>We bring that up because the only thing
that Republicans ever care about is business. So look, you’re also hurting business. Look, one more thing from my perspective on
this, and I didn’t know this until the interview last night. Most of the power lines in a lot of places
are underneath the ground. But PG&E in Northern California doesn’t wanna
spend the money to put them underground, so they have them above ground. But a lot of the area they are above is the
woods. So when a power line falls, it falls in the
woods and starts a massive fire. Now, if they actually paid the money to put
it underground, we wouldn’t have as many fires. But then their shareholders wouldn’t make
as much money. And remember, they keep the profits. But when a giant fire starts, they put all
of the cost onto the taxpayer of putting out the fire, all the damage that’s caused. And then on top of that, they go, bail me
out now. On top of it, I want more money. So this is not remotely capitalism, it is
socialism for the rich, and we’re all sick of it. And in this case in California, it’s literally
killing us. And then they bring on clowns like Dave Rubin
and Tucker Carlson, to distract you with a circus and blame black and gay people for
the fires. Does it get any more despicable than that?>>I’m going to play some more of this video
in our members only post game show. You can become a member by going to TYT.com/join. Members help to make this show happen, so
thank you to them. And we will continue this conversation in

  1. And back to being ridiculously stupid. Dave Rubin blamed exactly zero groups of people. He blamed the policy of diversity over ability.

    But at least you called him soulless and admitted you have no idea what the definition of liberal is. This was a pathetic display. You two should be ashamed.

  2. Cenk is wrong, this is capitalism for it work as intended, private owned companies pocket money and cut down and try save as much as possible to get as much in the pocket of the owners as possible. so if ppl get hurt or so doesn't mater for it is capitalism working as intended.

  3. Wow, these guys have sour grapes.
    Clearly no one can leave their echo chamber and succeed.
    By the way, Ana makes a point about "exploiting tragedies"
    Give me a break….. What is TYT if not a channel that exploits tragedies?

  4. TYT, pull back on the strawmen, please. It makes you look bad. Rather, try steel-manning your opponents (refer to Sam Harris-Jordan Peterson debates), then make your case. This is a sincere suggestion for improvement.

  5. First – I’m a huge liberal. However, I work for a private utility (got to pay the bills) – but your view on electric power and putting either in the ground or up in power lines is incorrect. The thought that we can put power lines in the ground though mountains and forests doesn’t work like that. I don’t have the time to explain the in’s and out’s of a utility company and the thought process behind it in a thread posting, but sorry Cenk, your incorrect on this one.

    Still love you all!!

  6. I havent discussed guided democracy and regulatory capture on my channel yet because trying to remain non-political on my invention discussions, but thinking about it.

  7. PG&E, a private corporation, fucks up everything for profit. Time to kill capitalism and Rave Dubin and perpetually confused dog, Tucker Carlson.

  8. Hey, socialist… when things are mismanaged by big government agencies… who do you think pays? The slavish, voiceless, Victory Gin sipping tax paying proles.

  9. TYT….the white man bad but we love our black criminals who kill cops channel. Rising with Krystal Ball has more class than you race baiting fools. You can kiss Jimmys ass you anti free speech communists.

  10. See how you can never do anything to appease racist. Nothing you can do. They will always blame you , hate you and use you. Always.

  11. I love when you guys read Dave Rubin for filth. He’s gay but sadly whiteness always trumps that. he has a lot of inner hatred and racism

  12. Who would care? Just asked any African American doctor that responds to a medical emergency on a plane. “Excuse me sir or mam, I know you showed me your medical certificate but are you really a doctor”

  13. Predator corporatists: Our ass is fine. There is no problem. Plus, we're very actively interested in making everything worse for everyone but ourselves.

  14. tyt taking things out of context as per usual wont actually show the begining clip of tucker introducing dave

    cant believe people think this a reliable news/opinion source

  15. I cant possibly see how America will ever recover with so much government corruption

    everywhere I look I see corruption on both state and federal levels. Whats wrong with Americans cant they see they getting shafted at every turn is there really something in the water U drink that blocks the brain.

  16. I'M SO GLAD YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT PG&E!!! I live in a small town so no big news ever covers anything that ever happens here. They were responsible for 2 fires that threatened my house and town (and burned surrounding towns, we were the lucky ones😩) last fire season. It was horrible and I hate the thought of them being bailed out with taxpayer money when it was their laziness that caused so much destruction. I think in one of the fires over 1,500 structures were destroyed, and since we're made of many very small towns it entirely destroyed at least 2 of them. And now we have to deal with their power outages 🙃

  17. Mr Rubin, who is the Fire Company? The company starting the fire? The company fighting the fire instead of our federally funded fire fighters? The company burning all your brain cells.

  18. I think you misrepresented his argument. He's saying that because people spend so much time focusing on diversity they spend less time on fire protection. It is still a bad argument because different departments within a business focus on different things and you rightly point out that their lack of focus is due to profit margins. Dave is a doofus but I don't think an honest view of his argument is that he blames the ones hired but that he blames those that are ~ "hiring them instead of improving fire safety."

  19. PG&E sent letter out couple months ago;not paying their stockholders. They are so incompetent,that they can't get it together on their website on whose power will go off, so the stupids send norcal in a frenzy due to their incompetence. I was just in Paradise,Ca. What a disgusting shame; fireplaces standing with no structure, stairs leading to nothing.

  20. I Love you guys ! I'm in the UK with a similar problem …A privileged ego-maniac that has been said …'What do you get if you send young Trump to Eton…?'…Boris Johnson ! Let's continue to expose these greedy ego-bigots…These guys rely on their pathetic apologists that spout fervour for the leader…Shame on you ! I'd lost faith with the USA (which started as a fair for-all-democracy) until I saw you guys fighting back for decency.and FACTS ! . Love Gus

  21. These Young Turks are embarrassing themselves and they are too dumb to know it. It’s the radicles like them on the far left and ones on the far right that are the problem. If one looks in the mirror, the reflection is the ones they claim are nuts. Idiots.

  22. I love you guys, but I disagree with this. While his argument may be flawed in the fact that identity politics caused or aided the fires, he is right in terms of the things he says about identity politics. He was not blaming black firefighters. Identity politics are a problem in America. It is time to talk about class, not race or gender, because everything stems from the massive social inequalities that plague us today.

  23. Notice how Tucker mentioned California, implying Liberal and/or Socialism…but failed to mention how the utility is privately owned and for profit. No mention of the taxpayers having to bail them out…it must be nice being a conservative. You have your cake and eat it too. How so many people vote for the GOP always astonishes me.

  24. what is the most important number: how much PG&E paid their investors this year? and last year?
    another important number missing: how much did they invest in infrastructure?the numbers were missing from this report, but I'd bet the first one is a lot, lot bigger than the second. or?

  25. Cenk, you were wrong about one thing you said…. you said Republicans care about business. That is untrue…. they only care about THEIR OWN business.

  26. They talk as if they fight for people's rights yet didn't bat an eye when trump administration kicked trans from the army..

  27. Well… Who else could put out a flaming gay tree but a flaming gay prisoner/firefighter… Thanks crappy power company. Those private power companies sure do a better job with no regulations…

  28. In the first clip, Rubin and Carlson are actually making the case that LGBTQ supporters are: that employers and customers should not care about the sexual orientation, identity or ethnicity of the fire fighters. Weird.

  29. Also, Dave doesn’t like regulation. Who cares if there were trees too close to the power lines? The free market will just start to kick in 👍🏻

  30. I'm sorry the only thing is going through my mind right now it's the fact that Dave Rubin is gay, sorry but when was this Discovery made

  31. It's okay to put blame on PG&E but don't forget to blame the populace of California also. Our lack of cleaning up the forests has only served to make the wildfires worse every year. Dead trees need to be removed. Underbrush needs to be cleared out. Sadly, it has been a progressive ideology that has stopped us from doing just that.

    Back to PG&E and Dave Ruben, I'm still waiting for you guys to say something of value regarding those two. You point out problems without offering a possible solutions. Just your anger. That's all fine and dandy, but it doesn't help the situation. Here's a suggestion, read up on the whole situation, learn about all that contributes to a problem, then think of a possible solution then discuss. Your current mode off communication is no different from a clique of valley girls from the 80's talking about their hair and Duran Duran… Pointless.

  32. There is a way around the problem of only having to get your electricity from one supplier. Here in England the network is owned by the State. Around the regions you have suppliers of Electricity. They buy or produce electricity to put into the grid. A customer can then chose which supplier he wishes to purchase his electricity from. I purchase my electricity from a supplier who obtains it from wind or solar powered sites. My electricity bills are cheaper. I, at one time, got my electricity from a Scottish supplier. I live in the South-East of England, Competition!

  33. Listen to you guys on TYT talking about wind patterns, failing equipment, privatized whatchamacallits. That God fearing-guy on TV who looks like me and whom I voted for said it's the gays and the blacks! Gotta go, Fox News is on!

  34. Cenk is so dumb omg. He viewed the same clip that we did and he came to the conclusion that Dave was blaming gay and black firefighters .. Cenk please delete your channel porfavor

  35. Tucker is a man child! Nothing comes out of his mouth is ever a fact! Dave rubin is very effective on actually diverting the actual reasons, shameful person.

  36. I wish Rave Dubin would change back to the Dave Rublin whose interviews I enjoyed watching 3-4 years ago.
    He is such a sellout.

  37. See black women & beta black men should've listen to real black men about those in LGBTQ community. They use our support then after receiving whatever they desired turn on us. As Asians did in the 90s and Latino currently tryna do. Help your own community. No more coalitions.

  38. The planet instability isn't the fault of black people. If Tucker and Rubin look in the mirror they will see whose actually to blame.

  39. They want to push the point about the law that requires us to hire people that aren't White supremacist, then they can trash that law & continue there kkk sleepover.

  40. California’s deadliest year of wildfires has been decades in the making, with overlapping environmental rules, both state and federal, making fuel load reductions in forests and coastal chaparral nearly impossible, while hostility towards commercial timber harvesting has allowed a massive build up in tree density and brush with a concurrent reduction of access roads and firebreaks.

  41. I live in Magalia a small town just north of Paradise! The Camp fire burned about half of Magalia as well! My brother and I were some of the lucky ones. The fire came within 1 miles of where we live! So we are outside of the fire zone. I would say most of the business/buildings survived the fire in Magalia though maybe 1/3 have reopened. In the town of Paradise I would estimate 2/3 of the business/buildings survived! That said maybe 1/3 of those reopened if that! Only one fast food cain survived and it hasn't reopened! Kmart was full of Christmas items, It took them more than 6 months to close down and never to reopened! Buy the way the Kmart and the shopping center parking lots saved lives! Most of the hospital survived though has never reopened! There is a grocery store that survived in Magalia that was in the fire zone. They are open for business. Two grocery stores in Paradise survived and are open for business! Two grocery stores were destroyed in the fire! I would say half of the residential areas in Magalia were destroyed and 90% of the residential areas of Paradise were destroyed! All these estimates are my own and non are official! The death toll last I heard was 83 though it may have been 85! Oh and by the way the Camp fire also burned at least part of the small community of Conow! I believe it burned first! The clean up has been massive! And PG&E should have to for all of it, not me nor any tax payer! The extra fee that PG&E collects I'm sure will just somehow be pocketed by PG&E! Rick PS By the way did any of you know that PG&E was going to turn off the power the night before or the morning of the Camp fire in California that burned the towns above! But of course they didn't! The Camp fire Started at 6AM November 8th 2018!

  42. Tucker and Dave are right. Whatever they are preaching in CA is not working. Put character and competence above intersectionality for a change. Maybe it will give different results. Looks like tyt have some personal vendetta going on.

  43. Dave Rubin didn't attack anyone moron. You are reading what you want into it. He said we shouldn't care if the firefighters are gay or straight. Yeah it may be politicizing a tragedy but its not homophobia.
