Podcasts have taken a lot of wind out of the corporate press’s sails.
Joe Rogan, arguably the most popular podcaster in the world, is a particular thorn in the side of the left-wing media establishment.
And Rogan infuriated leftists with one shocking announcement.
Popular podcaster, comedian, and UFC commentator Joe Rogan made the huge announcement that he’s leaving California.
Rogan had flirted with the move before, but he made it official by saying he’s moving to Texas.
During a recent episode of his podcast, Rogan said, “I’m outta here.”
His exodus from a blue state to a red state is not unique – especially right now with Democratic politicians allowing rampant lawlessness – but it’s one of the most high-profile.
Rogan added, “When you look at the traffic, when you look at the economic despair, when you look at the homelessness problem that’s accelerated radically over the last six, seven, ten years, I think there’s too many people here. I think it’s not tenable. I don’t think it’s manageable.”
The homelessness crisis has exploded in several west coast cities, and Los Angeles is one of the worst affected.
The homeless population was mainly concentrated downtown on Skid Row, but over the last decade it’s slowly spread all over the city.
Beneath almost every single freeway overpass sits a homeless encampment.
This is one of the consequences of allowing people to live in squalor on the street.
Many cities have facilities with thousands of empty beds because homeless people, almost all of them drug addicts or people with mental health conditions, would rather live on the street.
Rogan’s departure from California is a bad news for the Left because he’s highlighting the pitfall of Democratic governance.
This is a familiar cycle.
The taxes get too high, public order decays, the tax base leaves, and the area falls apart.
Rogan also rankled the Left when he said to his gigantic audience that he would vote for Donald Trump over Joe Biden because Biden is effectively senile.
Establishment media can’t stand Rogan because he disrupts their control over their narrative.
Rogan is mainly a centrist who leans both Left and Right on certain issues, so hopefully he doesn’t make the mistake of liberals who flee blue states and vote for the same bad policies.
