The First Amendment (amongst others) is under attack in America and popular podcast host Joe Rogan has found himself smack-dab in the middle of the battle.
Since COVID, but really before, insidious liberals have called for the censorship of anyone/everyone who dare speak out against mainstream left-wing talking points. The conflict ramped up significantly during Donald Trump’s rise in political superstardom, when Deep State actors and Big Tech censors sought to silence a man hellbent on draining the D.C. swamp.
Controversy has broke out lately, renewing the fight for freedom of speech after Joe Rogan featured a pair of guests on his program to discuss alternate COVID opinions.
Joe Rogan, host of the wildly popular podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience,” responded directly on Sunday night to the political Left’s attempts to cancel him in recent weeks over a couple of episodes where he had on medical professionals and scientists who challenged the mainstream narrative on matters related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rogan posted the video late on Sunday night on Instagram after Spotify, which is where he hosts his show, released a statement earlier in the day announcing new actions that the company would take “to combat misinformation.”

Rogan said that a lot of people have a “distorted perception” of what he does based on misleading media coverage. He said that he focuses on simply just having conversations with interesting people and trying to learn from them.
Rogan said that he agrees with Spotify’s decision to “at the beginning of these controversial podcasts, like specifically ones about COVID, … put a disclaimer and say that you should speak with your physician and that these people and the opinions that they express are contrary to the opinions of the consensus of experts, which I think is very important, sure, have that on there.”
Rogan said that moving forward he thinks he could do a better job of having more experts come on his show with different opinions immediately following episodes that are likely to be deemed controversial.
Granted, he never apologized for his move to present differing opinions on the program, but at this point Joe should know better than to give even an inch to the far-left. No concessions should be made. Period.
