Joe Rogan gets "cancelled" by the woke left - for endorsing Bernie Sanders
The left eating itself again:



Sanders, who is leading some polls in the important early-voting state of Iowa, tweeted a video clip of Rogan on Thursday saying he would “probably vote for Bernie.

“Deeply disappointing to see you celebrate this,” tweeted Democratic consultant Evan Sutton.

“Joe Rogan talking about his theory that childhood sexual abuse is what makes some people gay. Oh, and he is sharing this theory with the founder of the alt-right Proud Boys. This is the guy Bernie proudly announced as his new endorser yesterday,” tweeted The Horse Whisperer, an anti-Trump poster with 233,000 followers.

“The Sanders campaign must reconsider this endorsement and the decision to publicize the views of someone who has consistently attacked and dehumanized marginalized people, including transgender people,” tweeted Human Rights Campaign President Alphonso David.

They are emotional and reactionary. He will be good again next week.

This is what the left is doing frequently now.

Attempting to force left-wing commentators to fall into line and become more left.

It's also the reason that the Democrats can never have a candidate who appeals to the majority of it's voter base. They've become so divided that they just want to attack each other.

BTW, child abuse has been proven to change people's sexual preferences time and time again. Many lesbians say they became gay because of an abusive male. The nature not nurture argument is stupid, gayness can be a preprogrammed thing for some or it can be a lifestyle choice for others.

I'm just trying to figure this shit out like you are.

Bernie Sanders 'must reconsider' Joe Rogan endorsement, says LGBTQ group

Human Rights Campaign says podcast host Rogan has ‘attacked countless marginalised groups at every opportunity’


Bernie Sanders “must reconsider” his acceptance of an endorsement from Joe Rogan, the president of the Human Rights Campaign said on Friday, given that the comedian and podcast host has “attacked transgender people, gay men, women, people of colour and countless marginalised groups at every opportunity”.

In a statement that followed a flood of progressive protest over the endorsement, which Rogan made on Thursday, the HRC’s Alphonso David said Sanders had “run a campaign unabashedly supportive of the rights of LGBTQ people”.

But, he said, Rogan had among other remarks “compared a black community to Planet of the Apes” and “dehumanised transgender people by misgendering them and promoting misinformation”.

The Joe Rogan Experience is one of the most downloaded podcasts on iTunes and Rogan has nearly 6 million followers on Twitter. His podcast attracts high-profile interviewees. In September 2018, for example, the tech billionaire Elon Musk smoked marijuana on the show, an act which sent Tesla stock prices tumbling. Rogan has also faced criticism over interviews with far-right figures such as Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes and the conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

Sanders, who was interviewed by Rogan last August, is a frontrunner for the 2020 Democratic nomination to face Donald Trump in November.

Some observers said Rogan’s announcement that he would “probably vote for Bernie” was a win for the Vermont senator, showing he can win back white male voters who propelled Trump past Hillary Clinton in 2016. Rogan, who claims to “lean FAR more left than right”, has said he voted in that election for the Libertarian Gary Johnson.

Rogan spoke about Sanders and 2020 in an interview with the author and columnist Bari Weiss. Asked who he would “vote for in the primary”, he said: “I think I’ll probably vote for Bernie.”

He added: “He’s been insanely consistent his entire life. He’s basically been saying the same thing, been for the same thing for his whole life. And that in and of itself is a very powerful structure to operate from.”

Sanders, a lifelong democratic socialist and independent, tweeted video of the exchange. It prompted a progressive backlash.

Rogan’s views on transgender issues – regarding UFC athlete Fallon Fox, for example – have attracted widespread controversy. His reference to the Planet of the Apes emerged in the fallout over his remarks about Sanders.

In a 2013 podcast, Rogan discussed seeing the film in question in an African American neighbourhood.

“We get out, we’re giggling, ‘We’re going to go see Planet of the Apes,’ we walk into Planet of the Apes,” he said. “We walked into Africa.”

Rogan also said “Planet of the Apes didn’t take place in Africa, that was a racist thing for me to say” and said his trip to see the film had been “a positive experience”.

But the HRC was not giving him or Sanders a pass.

“We should always be willing to educate individuals who operate from a place of bias,” David said, “but we should not directly or indirectly validate or celebrate them.

“Given Rogan’s comments, it is disappointing that the Sanders campaign has accepted and promoted the endorsement. The Sanders campaign must reconsider this endorsement and the decision to publicise the views of someone who has consistently attacked and dehumanised marginalised people.”

In an earlier statement, a Sanders aide said: “The goal of our campaign is to build a multiracial, multi-generational movement large enough to defeat Donald Trump and the powerful special interests whose greed and corruption is the root cause of the outrageous inequality in America.

“Sharing a big tent requires including those who do not share every one of our beliefs, while always making clear that we will never compromise our values.

“The truth is that by standing together in solidarity, we share the values of love and respect that will move us in the direction of a more humane, more equal world.”

The people attacking Bernie about this are crazy, it's not his fault that Rogan says that he "might vote for Bernie". The haters are saying that Bernie can't allow Rogan to want to vote for him. it's crazy.

There was no endorsement from Rogan, and all Bernie did was retweet a clip of Rogan saying he might vote for him.

It's amazing how trivial something can be, and yet it still outrages the lunatic left.


I think Rogan will be a bit shocked by the amount of hate that's come back at him, he just got a lesson in what happens when you start playing politics.

Off topic, but I just watched the remake of Enter The Fat Dragon. The main character's name was Fallon Zhu, and as he was explaining his name, he mentioned Jimmy Fallon and Fallon Fox. I thought that was odd. Or is there another Fallon Fox we don't know about?

DB, you made me curious. So I searched on "Fallon Fox" and all that came up was the transgender MMA fighter. No other references for a Fallon Fox.

of course the competition will attack Bernie because the goal is to win. Bernie and Yang are obviously popular with the PEOPLE so the opposition is going to be coming after them on any crumb of opportunity. This is not something which is going to sway opinion from those who believe in the Bern!

Didn't Milo warn Rogan that he would be targeted eventually? Is that what's happening now?
