Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Dr. Ron Paul, libertarian and former Congressman, about Big tech censorship, threats to freedom of speech, and his being caught up in the social media purge which resulted in him being temporarily censored on Facebook. Ron will discuss the power of social media censorship to silence platforms like Parler, sitting presidents like Donald Trump as well as any voices outside the mainstream. He will also discuss how the Joe Biden cabinet is packed with people who, while decrying the violence of Trump supporters storming the Capitol building, have been involved in real coups around the world in previous administrations.
