Joe Rogan Caves to Mainstream Media Over Vaccine Statement

Did the oligarchy just bludgeon free speech at Joe Rogan’s expense?

Published

Joe Rogan is a bit of an anomaly within the media realm, having recreated the way in which many of us consume informative content.

Instead of packaging his brand of interview show into a 22-minute or 46-minute standardized slot, Rogan decided to allow for long form, freestyle content, with some episodes pushing well past the three hour mark with even a single guest.  This was largely seen as a refreshing boost to the very idea of free speech as it allowed for explanations of positions that would never have been possible within the mainstream media’s allowed portion-size.

But when Rogan finally took a deal to bring his massively popular show to Spotify, there were concerns that the program may lose a bit of its freedom, or that it might be subject to peer pressure from the world at large.

Those fears may have come true this week.

Joe Rogan retracted his comments on Thursday after receiving backlash online for suggesting young, healthy people shouldn’t worry about getting the COVID-19 vaccination.

“I am not an anti-vax person,” Rogan said on his popular Spotify podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

“In fact, I said I believe they are safe and I encourage many people to take them. I just said if you’re a young healthy person, you don’t need it. Their argument was you need it for other people. But that’s a different conversation. And yes, that makes sense,” he continued.

The host continued…

Rogan, 53, clarified, “I am not a doctor. I am a f***ing moron. I am a cage-fighting commentator… I am not a respected source of information even for me. But I at least try to be honest about what I am saying.”

Vaccine hesitancy has been a bit of an obstacle in our nation’s reopening plan, and some lawmakers are even holding businesses hostage until a certain percentage of their local population has received a jab.

MSNBC Host Says Election Skeptics Have a ‘Lack of Masculinity’

The gender-charged language revealed a dirty little secret about the left’s gender wars, too.

Published

Over the years, there have been innumerable ways in which the left-leaning mainstream media has chosen to insult those with whom they disagree, sometimes subtly, but often with the brute force and all the grace of a three-legged alligator wearing a blindfold.

This bombastic bias only turned more heated during Donald Trump’s first term as President, as the volume of the Commander in Chief dared pundits and talking heads to try and keep up.

Now, as things turn downright despicable on MSNBC, host Nicolle Wallace took a very cheap shot at a very large segment of the US population.

Reporter Jacob Soboroff said, “Governor Newsom saying that the Republicans are trying to dismantle democracy and that he will accept the results of the election win or lose, full stop, a very different message than we heard from Larry Elder yesterday.”

He added, “This is straight out of the Donald Trump playbook. You heard the governor refer to that as well. Is there a Republican icon in California that’s done this? I don’t believe so. Clearly, there is one in national American politics, the former president of the United States.”

Then came the shocker:

Wallace said, “You’re right. I worked for Dan Lungren, who was behind who never questioned the election results. I came up in politics in California working for Republicans who faced long odds, and not a single one of them ever debased the state’s voters. They never debased democracy itself. They were not sore losers. They were real men.”

She added, “I wonder, Jason Johnson if you can speak to the lack of masculinity in these male Republican candidates who can’t take a punch politically. They can’t win on the merits. They’re too weak and unpopular, so they cry foul, they cry rigged. It goes counter to all the over bogus machismo coming out of the sickest, most toxic elements of the political right.”

While Wallace’s unflinching decision to go low is shocking in and of itself, the fact that she would dare to use gender-charged language in front of the ultra-progressive MSNBC audience is surprising as well.

We know that Wallace meant to emasculate the GOP here, but she then chose to use the only language that could make her point so succinctly, and in doing so, she has unwillingly admitted that the left’s gender-language game is rigged for use only against those who they deem worth attacking.

Comedian Cancels Show at Venues That Require Proof of Vaccination

BOOM!

Published

on

In the United States today, there is but one major cultural argument that is considered universal:  Should coronavirus vaccines be mandatory in certain situations?

This has been an ugly argument over the course of the last several months, with the anti-vaccine crowd claiming their inalienable bodily sovereignty over the progressives’ precautionary bent.

The federal government is just now beginning to wade into the debate, with US President Joe Biden demanding that all federal workers be vaccinated, (with a few exceptions), and by instilling new vaccine and testing rules for any private employer with more than 100 people on the books.

But, largely, vaccine mandates continue to exist in the realm of small and medium sized businesses who are requiring their customers to prove their jab-status.

One of the nation’s most well-known standup comics is now taking a stand against this discrimination of the unvaccinated.

Comedian and “Saturday Night Live” alum Jim Breuer said in a Facebook Live over the weekend that he will not be performing at venues that require proof of Covid vaccination for guests.

“Two quick updates on shows that you may think you may be getting tickets to or you already have tickets to: The Wellmont Theater in New Jersey — not doing it,” Breuer said in the 22 minute Facebook live.

“Also the Royal Oak Theater in Michigan, due to the segregation of them forcing people to show up with vaccinations … I am also not doing those shows,” said Breuer, 54.

The comedian wasn’t joking around, either.

“I know I’m going to sacrifice a lot of money, but I’m not going to be enslaved to the system or money,” the comedian added.

Breuer said getting vaccinated was “a choice,” and he didn’t care what his fans might have to say about his decision to cancel his shows.

He said patrons were being “forced” and “bribed” before they could attend shows.

“If you have anything else to say, I honestly don’t care,” Breuer said. “Due to, I have to stick to my morals, I have to sick to what i know is right.”

The news comes just days after fellow standup comic Patton Oswalt took a turn in the opposite direction, saying that he would not play any shows in which the venues could not guarantee that the audience was fully vaccinated.
