The Left is ramping up its attacks on popular podcaster Joe Rogan.
The radicals can’t handle anyone with opinions that differ from theirs.
Now “woke” leftists are trying to censor Joe Rogan in a ridiculous way.
The giant music streaming platform Spotify paid $100 million for the exclusive right to present Joe Rogan’s wildly popular podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience.”
But woke leftists at the company are already causing headaches for Rogan and CEO Daniel Ek.
Rogan recently made the mistake of bending the knee to the outrage mob, and now they’re predictably trying to make a power grab.
Rogan apologized for a comment he made during a recent episode where he said leftists were being arrested for setting wildfires in California and Oregon.
The truth is that at least one leftist got caught trying to commit arson, and others have been suspected of doing so.
And one woman held a possible arsonist at gunpoint as she got him with matches trying to light a fire on her rural property.
Rogan’s claim wasn’t even wildly inaccurate, but he nevertheless apologized to the woke Left.
Now woke staff at Spotify are demanding editorial control over his podcast.
Activists at the company supposedly want to censor content before the show goes live, and provide trigger warnings for any “microaggressions” that appear during his conversations.
According to sources at Vice, Ek said:
“In the case of Joe Rogan, a total of ten meetings have been held with various groups and individuals to hear their respective concerns . . . And some of them want Rogan removed because of things he’s said in the past.”
This is emblematic of the delusional Left.
A bunch of entitled leftists think they’re more important than the number one podcaster in the world who’s interviewed presidential candidates, renowned authors, professors, filmmakers, actors, and many others from different walks of life.
These woke leftists have been convinced of their moral rectitude, and anyone outside their mental framework must be silenced.
The great irony of it all is that Rogan is mainly center-left politically, but that’s not good enough.
Everyone must buy in totally to the progressive dogma, or be excommunicated.
The leftists’ main gripe is that Rogan is “transphobic” because he believes there are biological differences between men and women.
Rogan has trained in martial arts his entire life and works as a commentator for the UFC, so when he says males who have gone through puberty have a marked physical advantage in athletic competition, he knows what he’s talking about.
