Joe Rogan is currently one of the most popular personalities in the world of MMA and UFC, largely thanks to his commentary skills and also his podcast. He recovered from the virus last year and since then spread a lot of misinformation about the virus, at least according to numerous doctors and various other people. A UFC girl also wanted Joe Rogan to pick her up previously.
Rogan previously opened up on the episodes of his podcast that featured Dr. Robert Malone and Dr. Peter McCullough. They were the most controversial ones. Eventually, Joe Rogan became a controversial figure due to him using the n-word and other racial slurs in the past. It led to him getting cancelled for a while and losing deals as well. Except for Spotify, who stood by him for the most part except for deleting several of his Joe Rogan Experience podcast episodes.
Rogan and his guest, former CIA officer Mike Baker, have both been criticized by social-media users after a clip of their conversation went viral. The pair discussed Soros on the January 11 episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, but late on Monday, campaigners took notice and spoke out against their views.
Rogan gave his view of Soros’ alleged generosity, detailing the opinions of Republican Governor of Texas Greg Abbott.
“[Greg] was explaining to me what George Soros does, and it’s f****** terrifying, that he donates money to a very progressive, very leftist, whether it’s a [District Attorney] or whatever politician, and then fund someone who’s even further left than them to go against them, and just keep moving it along.” Rogan added, “So he’s playing like a global game, and he enjoys doing it.”
Rogan and Baker’s exchange has been viewed in isolation thousands of times online, but Jewish writer and activist Elad Nehorai is worried about the larger podcast audience who regularly tune into The Joe Rogan Experience.
“11 million people listen to this podcast. 11 million people hearing and absorbing antisemitic tropes,” Nehorai wrote on Twitter.
Posting after Nehorai’s take, journalist Chris Geidner tweeted, “In addition to the disgusting antisemitism on display here, I have a few thoughts about this.” In a Twitter thread, Geidner started by noting how Rogan goes to Abbott for an “objective understanding of the world around him.”
