Joe Rogan, during a recent podcast discussion on censorship, blasted liberals for moving to the extreme left while conservatives are the ones standing up for free speech in America.

Rogan was speaking with comedian Fahim Anwar about how Fox News was the only mainstream media outlet that supported him when a handful of aging musical stars began demanding he be removed from Spotify due to alleged COVID ‘misinformation.’

The popular podcaster further landed in hot water when a video surfaced of him using the “n-word” in past podcasts, though the clip compilation lacked any context or comedic explanation.

“They had my back through it,” Rogan revealed. “It was Fox News that had my f***ing back.”

He went on to say the left had shifted to the absolute extreme when it comes to free speech.

Joe Rogan Hammers Liberals, Praises Conservatives

Following the Spotify kerfuffle and controversial video, Florida governor Ron DeSantis said Joe Rogan should not have apologized to the cancel culture mob.

“No, he shouldn’t have apologized. I mean, you see what happens?” DeSantis told reporters. “The mob will come after people, and they’re targeting Rogan because he’s threatening to upset the apple cart on some of the things that they’re holding dear.”

Rogan addressed that mob during Tuesday’s episode. He began by explaining what liberals and conservatives used to represent when it comes to censorship.

“Liberal was pro-free speech, people were open-minded, non-violent, and people were open to other people’s ideas,” he recalled. “And the right was suppressive. Nanny state. Condemned certain language, condemned certain behavior. That’s not the case today.”

Anwar and Rogan continued to discuss liberal censorship efforts when it comes to Dave Chappelle, a brilliant but edgy comedian who is often branded by the left as ‘transphobic.’

Chappelle was recently attacked on stage by a knife-wielding man who said the comedian’s work was “triggering.”

“Today the left has gone so f***ing far left, so radical that the right are the ones celebrating comedians, celebrating Chappelle,” Rogan said.

First Musk, Now Rogan

Bear in mind that Joe Rogan was making these comments with the context of admitting he is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a conservative.

“I’m so liberal, I talk about it all the time. I’m not a conservative, I’m not conservative,” Rogan said.

Yet, when controversy arose, it was conservatives who stood up for his right to free speech.

Rogan’s comments are similar to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who recently posted a graphic indicating liberals have moved so far to the left as ‘woke’ progressives that it’s caused people in the middle to inadvertently end up on the right side of the political spectrum.

Rogan recently responded to calls from the left for gun control in the wake of the Uvalde school massacre.

“What is the answer? Is the answer to take everyone’s guns?” he asked. “Well, they’re not gonna give their guns up.”

“Only criminals are gonna have guns,” Rogan added. “It’s not gonna be a good situation.”

“Freedoms lost are rarely regained,” Rogan said.

And liberals are doing their best to take away freedoms guaranteed by both the First and Second Amendments. Even a self-described liberal can see that it’s conservatives who are now standing up for those American values, those freedoms.
