Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Laurence Fox, actor and political activist, about being cancelled after his appearance on Question Time, why he started the Reclaim party to run against Sadiq Khan in the London mayoral election, how the US infected the UK with the woke virus and why the fall of the labour red wall might be a sign that identity politics is on the decline. First Laurence discusses why cancel culture sucks from his own personal experience. He shares how his comments about Harry and Meghan on Question Time led to him being accused of having white privilege. He shares how quickly everyone will turn on you including your own union if the woke mob decides that you are cancelled. He describes how he fought back by suing for defamation. Laurence also describes the importance of defending liberalism and freedom of speech. Laurence talks about the anti police London protests, and the devastating effects of the lockdowns. He shares how he decided to start the Reclaim party to run against Sadiq Khan for mayor of London. He describes why more political parties are needed for the average person to be heard. Laurence also describes the current decline of London and why people are unable to even criticize knife crime in the UK without being accused of racism. He also discusses how the Labour party is more concerned with white guilt than the white working class and class politics. Laurence talks about how the ideas of woke politics and Black Live Matter have been imported into England. He does see signs that people are pushing back like the collapse of the red wall, which usually votes for Labour, voting conservative for the first time in decades. He thinks people have had enough of being told that they are racists and raising racist kids. He shares how social institutions can be reclaimed from the disastrous ideas of critical race theory and antiracism. Laurence also gives his perspective on the royal rift that resulted from the Meghan Markle Oprah interview.
