Comedian and “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast host Joe Rogan drew outrage from the far left, and praise from the working class this week for comments made about the cultural bias and bigotry against straight white men during a conversation about whether edgy comedy is socially viable in the current year.
During Episode 1651 of the JRE podcast with comedian Joe List, Rogan veered into the subject of highly prevalent anti-white racism in the entertainment industry. “You can never be woke enough, that’s the problem,” Rogan noted. “It keeps going. It keeps going further and further and further down the line, and if you get to the point where you capitulate, where you agree to all these demands, it’ll eventually get to straight white men are not allowed to talk.”
“Because it’s your privilege to express yourself when other people of color have been silenced throughout history,” Rogan continued. “It will be, you’re not allowed to go outside. Because so many people were imprisoned. I’m not joking, it really will get there. It’s that crazy.”
“And there’s a lot of people that are taking advantage of this weirdness in our culture, and then that becomes their thing,” the JRE podcast host said of left-wing activists. “Their thing is calling people out for their privilege, calling people out for their position, you know, so, it’s a f**king crazy time.”
Rogan previously enraged leftists in April, when he indicated that he does not believe healthy young adults should take the Covid vaccine:
Joe Rogan, the self-made podcast host who recently made the jump from YouTube to Spotify, made the case for young Americans not to take one of the controversial COVID-19 vaccines, suggesting that potential side effects from the under tested vaccines may outweigh risks of contracting COVID-19.
Speaking with comedian Dave Smith on the April 23 episode of his Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Rogan spoke extensively about his thoughts on the COVID-19 vaccines. People say, do you think it’s safe to get vaccinated, and I’ve said, Yeah I think for the most part, it’s safe to get vaccinated, I do, I do. But if you say to me, you’re like 21 years old, and you say to me, ‘Should I get vaccinated?’ I’ll go no, are you healthy? Are you a healthy person? Like, look, don’t do anything stupid, but you should take care of yourself. If you’re a healthy person and you’re exercising all the time and you’re young and you’re eating well, I don’t think you need to worry about this.” Rogan then continued, expressing concern, “But there’s a lot of jobs that will tell you that you need to have this.”
