Leftists hate that Joe Rogan has a platform.
He can bypass the so-called mainstream media and spread his message to millions of viewers.
And Rogan made one statement about guns that had liberals fainting.
Famed podcaster Joe Rogan has become a nemesis of the Left.
Even though he has several liberal opinions and many liberal guests on his show, he does align with the Left on everything, so they hate him.
For example, Rogan believes it’s unfair for biological men to compete against women in sports, and he’s a supporter of the Second Amendment.
During a recent podcast about Australia’s nightmarish COVID lockdowns, Rogan argued, “No one’s lost their mind better than Australia…It’s a great sign that everyone needs guns.”
That one sentence made the Left apoplectic.
Australia pursued the nonsensical COVID Zero strategy, which has been an utter disaster.
The island nation has set up quarantine camps for people, and they will be arrested if they attempt to leave.
From the BBC:
“Australian police have arrested three people who broke out of a Covid quarantine compound in the middle of the night. The Howard Springs centre near Darwin in the Northern Territory is one of Australia’s main quarantine facilities for people returning to the country. Police said the trio scaled a fence to break out of the facility. Officers found them after a manhunt on Wednesday. All had tested negative to Covid the day before. Officials did not state whether the escapees were returning travellers or locals in quarantine…Police had set up checkpoints around the compound on Wednesday and inspected cars moving through the area.”
There has been an effort by some in Australia to downplay the severity of the Howard Springs quarantine camps—portraying them as spas—but people are not free to leave.
These camps underscore the authoritarian tilt of the country.
It’s much harder to herd a nation into camps if they have guns to defend themselves.
Thankfully the COVID regime in America hasn’t gone to this extreme, but it would if it could get away with it.
Australia is even instituting curfews.
From The Federalist:
“In the Greater Sydney region of New South Wales, local authorities have restricted most interstate travel, forcibly shuttered places of worship, and limited the reasons individuals are allowed to leave their homes. Likewise in Victoria, where citizens remain in indefinite lockdown, state officials have instituted a curfew from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. in metropolitan Melbourne.”
Americans have been surprisingly complacent in the face of COVID lockdowns, but people are getting fed up.
Millions are opposing Joe Biden’s unconstitutional mandate, and even liberals are finally waking up to the nonsense.
CNN’s Brian Stelter finally admitted that schools should not be shut down, something that rational individuals have been saying for over a year.
Joe Rogan moved his company from California to Texas because California was turning into an authoritarian hellscape.
Others are following Rogan and fleeing blue states for the freedom of red states.
