Woke leftists on Twitter are fuming over a Bernie campaign ad featuring Joe Rogan. He is being slammed as far-right despite Joe declaring himself mostly liberal-minded and saying he is thinking of supporting Sanders, a self-declared democratic socialist.
The tweet in question is below.
On a recent podcast, Joe Rogan offhandedly mentioned he was thinking about voting for Bernie Sanders.
The Sanders campaign then took the clip and ran it as a campaign ad promoting Bernie and this move sparked massive outrage among “woke leftists.”
While many on the left were quick to praise Rogan’s comments, the woke Twitterati were furious that Bernie would promote Joe Rogan who they claim is far-right.
Rogan never actually endorsed Sanders and simply stated he was thinking of voting for the Vermont senator.
Joe Rogan is one of the most popular talk show hosts in the world, a hero to politically disenchanted men across America in particular. Rogan’s show covers an eclectic range of topics, from sports to science to politics, and has millions of dedicated followers on YouTube alone. He’s described himself as “left on everything” politically, and said on Tuesday that he would vote for Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary.-Vox.com
Bernie Supporters and Democrats seem to want to lose to Trump if this is the case. Joe Rogan is wildly popular and his support would do great things for a campaign.
For about ten years, Rogan has been the host of the wildly popular Joe Rogan Experience, an internet talk show that’s become popular both in a podcast and video form on YouTube. It’s been the No. 2 show in the world on iTunes Podcasts for the past two years and the YouTube channel, PowerfulJRE, has over 7 million subscribers.
But with this move, it seems many on the left would rather lose to Trump than accept a coalition of people they disagree with. The ideological purity of the woke far left will ensure their sound defeat later this year.- Tim Pool
