Joe Rogan changed my life.

Joe Rogan is a good guy who just happens to have more media influence than the cable networks combined. His podcast will be downloaded 100 million times this month. Sean Hannity AND Racheal Maddow could only dream of such a following. It's funny as this Joe Rogan nonsense blew up, I was listening to 2 hours of unfiltered talk between Joe and gay strongman Ed Kearney. Joe gives a platform to everyone and allows them to talk unfiltered and it's fucking awesome. Joe changed my life two years ago. He, his guests and a brief airport encounter helped me overcome depression and health issues. I'm now fit and feeling awesome at age 47. Joe has politicians, CEO's, scientists, fitness and health experts and intellectuals along with fellow comedians and people involved in current events. His Kevin Hart podcast was gold. He allows Abby Martin to appear frequently to advocate for the plight of the Palestinians in a way she could never do on cable. He is a passionate defender of climate change and has many podcast where he talk to top scientists. Unlike cable he allows all sides to speak unfiltered. He's not corporate owned or beholden to advertisers. If you listen to him you'll clearly know he is a social liberal for the most part. He advocates for marijuana rights, gay rights and various liberal stances. To call Joe a racist is utter nonsense and evidence of your lack of listening. Joe has said some things that are crass, inappropriate and taken out context but a racist and homophobe he isn't. Joe isnt perfect and as a comedian you can go find lots of old inappropriate things from past. Joe Rogan will only flourish under this scrutiny from advocacy groups that are sometimes unreasonable. Thanks for changing my life Joe. Im.about to listen to the new Robert Downey Jr podcast while I workout.

1. "he is a social liberal for the most part."

So I'm guessing the part where he uses the n-word freely and yells at trans people about their own genders is stuff that's outside of "for the most part."

Other than that shit he's a progressive.

2. Does this include his discussion of Hillary giving blow jobs

Was that also a life-changing event?

7. I have an honest question to ask of you and other Rogan supporters?

Are you white, straight, male and middle class (or at least currently comfortable, even if you came from less fortunate beginnings)?

Because honestly, that's what comes to mind every time I read a post defending Rogan.

And in the interests of disclosure, I am nonwhite (Asian), straight, male and middle class.

6. He's a gross, crass PED meathead.

 

Hes also an anti-trans bigot and a promoter of pseudoscience. But he smokes weed so he must be a hero.

9. From the excerpts I've heard, he's just another loudmouthed asshole

on the Internet. Sorry, but I'm not tempted to delve in any farther.

You said he's a "passionate defender of climate change," by the way. That's pretty unclear. Does he like climate change or is he fighting it? Your statement makes it sound like he thinks climate change is just great.

Sorry, but I'm not convinced - not even a little bit.

BTW: Up Manchester City!

10. Rogan is a racist, misogynistic, pile of crap.

 

He's right wing and gives platform to nutters like Ted Nugent.

Fuck Rogan. Anybody he endorses who accepts it is persona non grata in my book.

I remember hearing that to describe him at one point.

16. He also attacks and brigades his followers to dox and attack women

The MMA writer Sydnie Jones is just one of them.

And looooves to call Cris Justino (aka Cyborg, WMMA Featherweight) an "It," "Shemale," etc. She is a cis woman, so transphobia and misogyny all wrapped up into one steaming pile of shit.

He also sucks as an MMA commentator, too, and I have no idea while they still use him.

15. I've never watched/listened to Rogan, but here's what I know.

The 30-something, video gaming addicted nerds at work, who all live in their Mom's basements and think that
trash like the "Proud Boys", and neo nazis are "OK", seem to all have man-crushes on Joe Rogan.

That's pretty much all I need to know about the guy.

20. From the Wikipedia article on Joe Rogan

He endorsed Ron Paul in the 2012 U.S. presidential campaign[76] and Gary Johnson in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign.[77] Rogan has publicly supported Tulsi Gabbard and encouraged her to run for U.S. presidency in 2020.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Rogan

He is not a friend of Democrats. Not one bit.

19. Video game addicted nerds?

I'm sorry those guys like proud boys neo Nazis or even Joe Rogan but not all of us 30 something's who like video games as a hobby are into neo Nazis. I'm very anti racist myself.

I'm tired of all these blowups over endorsements. I support Sanders because he wants to expand social security among many other issues. I'm sick of people like Cenk & Joe Rogan derailing Sanders campaign over an endorsement. Just my .02

That's the sort of video gamer that likes him.

23. The whole Gamergate thing was about misogyny more than it was about video games

Also right wing politics in general. For example when Nancy Pelosi correctly said it was false that video games are responsible for mass shootings they still defended Trump saying Pelosi forced him to blame video games.

Most people in my generation have played video games not just the right wing misogynists. I could go into detail but they were the beginnings of the alt right.

27. I didn't make it a blanket statement about all 30-somethings. nt

I was referring to these characters at work. I called them "video game addicted" because it's all they talk about, outside of worshiping the likes of Rogan, Alex Jones, et al. They think they're real life gangsters from "Grand Theft Auto".
They are walking, talking stereotypes. They're know-it-alls about everything they've never done, such as supporting themselves, raising children, owning anything, you name it. The nerdsplaining is the most hilarious part.
And, of course, everything wrong with the World is "Boomer's fault"...
