Joe Rogan thinks his enemies will settle for apologies, context and humility.
He couldn’t be extra fallacious on all three fronts. And he’s discovering that out in actual time.
Rogan’s newest battle started when Neil Younger eliminated his music from Spotify, dwelling of “The Joe Rogan Expertise,” final month. The traditional rocker recoiled at Rogan spreading “misinformation” about COVID-19.
Younger isn’t a physician nor a medical skilled. He ignored how a lot misinformation is shared throughout media landscapes on a wide range of matters, together with the pandemic.
The star who as soon as headlined a Freedom of Speech tour was now making an attempt to deplatform a comic for saying the “fallacious” factor.

The transfer began a groundswell in opposition to Rogan, together with a mainstream media panorama which loathed him already. Spotify quasi-caved, vowing so as to add “content material warnings” to exhibits concerning the pandemic, together with a number of Rogan episodes.
Rogan tried to cease the cultural bleeding by way of Instagram.
He vowed to be extra editorially balanced shifting ahead, not realizing his present serves because the stability to the media’s groupthink on matters just like the pandemic. He might have ignored his critics or advised them to pound sand. He’s a comic sharing opinions on varied topics.
Your common episode of “The View” delivers extra misinformation with out repercussions. It took host Whoopi Goldberg’s inane Holocaust rant to carry any form of blowback on the ABC discuss present.
As an alternative, he confirmed humility and weak spot through the disaster, and his critics predictably superior. Extra artists pulled their work from Spotify in protest, together with India Arie. Extra journalists used their perches to blast Rogan and hold the story alive.
Spotify equally buckled, eradicating at the very least 70 traditional episodes of Rogan’s present, together with a number of that includes media critic Michael Malice.
Now, Rogan is again on Instagram, providing extra apologies for commentary he’s made previously. This time, he responded to somebody who edited a collection of “JRE” moments the place he used the n-word. The comedian didn’t assault anybody with the poisonous phrase, he both quoted another person who used it or shared different tales involving it.
The incidents are all a number of years outdated. That didn’t matter to his critics, although, who used the clip assortment to resume their assaults on him.
“I can’t return in time and alter what I stated. I want I might,” Rogan stated. “I do hope this generally is a teachable second … my honest and humble apologies.”
You by no means apologize to the woke mob. It solely emboldens them. If they need you gone, they gained’t settle for your apology. Simply ask Roseanne Barr. In the event you’re a fellow progressive, although, a two-week suspension is the worst you’ll get.
Jimmy Kimmel has but to face any penalties for a collection of blackface moments from his previous. He’s a loud and proud progressive propagandist on ABC, and he supplies a beneficial service for the woke mob.
Rogan isn’t the one individual to utter the n-word through the years. Different comedians have performed so. Quentin Tarantino routinely places the phrase in his actors’ mouths. Just some years again saying the phrase aloud, in context and with no trace of malice, wasn’t a punishable act.
It’s now, in fact, and Rogan hasn’t used it in years.
He’ll quickly study the folly of apologizing to individuals who aren’t able to forgive and neglect. Want one on the spot instance?
Dwayne Johnson broke ranks together with his censorial friends earlier this week, praising Rogan’s preliminary apology video and vowing to speak with him.
That was then (a number of days in the past). Now that somebody created a super-cut of Rogan saying the “n-word,” in context and at all times citing another person, Johnson seems to be backpedaling himself.
Thanks a lot for this
I hear you in addition to everybody right here 100%
I used to be not conscious of his N phrase use previous to my feedback, however now I’ve change into educated to his full narrative.
Studying second for me.
Mahalo, brother and have an amazing & productive weekend.

Winslow isn’t prepared for any Rogan apology. Nor will different critics be able to forgive and neglect.
Issues simply bought dramatically worse for Rogan. It’s clear Spotify doesn’t absolutely have his again. Rogan himself reduce down on his manufacturing schedule over the previous week, an indication he’s buckling beneath the stress.
It’s a matter of time earlier than Spotify cuts ties with I’m or Rogan begins doing what he’s advised.
- Embrace the Narrative
- Share views that the progressive Left think about sacred
- Don’t rock the boat
- Cease giving voice to these silenced by social media
Likelihood is he’ll keep in mind all of the zeroes in his Spotify contract and just do that. It’s not too late, although, for the UFC commentator to summon his interior warrior.
