Democrats are increasing their censorship efforts.
They’re using cancel culture to silence prominent voices that disagree with them.
Now the “woke” mob is trying to ruin Joe Rogan for one insane reason.
The left have identified podcast host Joe Rogan as a threat, and they’re determined to cancel him for good.
Ever since he mocked Joe Biden’s constant mental gaffes and said he couldn’t vote for him, Rogan has been targeted by liberals.
The animus from the left intensified when Rogan had discussions with doctors who have counter-narrative views on COVID.
That triggered a wave of calls to have Rogan removed for “misinformation.”
White House press secretary Jen Psaki joined in and said that Spotify, the streaming service with exclusive rights to host Rogan’s podcast, needed to do “more” in order to stop disinformation.
Spotify partially caved in and agreed to put a disclaimer label on so-called controversial episodes.
Psaki said in a press briefing:
“It’s a positive step but more can be done…This disclaimer, it’s a positive step but we want every platform to continue doing more to call out misinformation and disinformation while also uplifting accurate information.”
But apologizing to the leftist mob only emboldens them.
A leftist group put together a video of Rogan saying the N-word completely out of context in various episodes of his show over the course of several years.
That spurred the left to move from charges of misinformation to racism in order to have Rogan canceled by Spotify.
CNN was openly calling for Rogan to be fired.
Brian Stelter, Jim Acosta, and Oliver Darcy all pushed for Spotify to remove Rogan for his “racism,” which was an absurd contention.
Rogan apologized for the video and Spotify caved even further to pressure.
The company supposedly removed over 70 episodes from Rogan’s archive.
Spotify CEO Daniel Ek said to a town hall of “woke” employees:
“I think it’s important you’re aware that we’ve had conversations with Joe and his team about some of the content in his show, including his history of using some racially insensitive language. Following these discussions and his own reflections, he chose to remove a number of episodes from Spotify. He also issued his own apology over the weekend.”
Leftists smell blood in the water, so they won’t stop coming for Rogan and Spotify.
Rogan has too many followers and cannot be controlled, so the Democrat Media Complex want him deplatformed entirely.
Rogan attracts 11 million viewers and listeners per episode, which crushes CNN’s and MSNBC’s nightly numbers combined.
With the pivotal 2022 midterms looking, the Democrats do not want Rogan undermining their propaganda.
They need a near media monopoly of the narrative in order to maintain control.
Even if Spotify caves and removes Rogan, he will simply go to a different platform and his fans will follow him there, as they did when he transferred to Spotify from YouTube.
Rumble already offered him $100 million to use its service.
