The establishment is ramping up its censorship efforts.
Joe Biden and the Democrats only want legacy media institutions to have a voice.
Now, attempts to silence his critics just took a disturbing turn.
The Left isolated podcaster Joe Rogan as a threat, and they’re determined to take him out.
Ever since he mocked Joe Biden’s persistent mental gaffes and said he couldn’t vote for him, Rogan has had a target on his back.
The animus from the Left intensified when Rogan hosted discussions with physicians who have counter-narrative views on COVID.
That spurred a deluge of calls to have Rogan removed for “misinformation.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki got in on the act and said Spotify, the streaming service with exclusive rights to host Rogan’s podcast, needed to do more in order to stop misinformation.
Spotify partially bent the knee and agreed to put a disclaimer label on so-called controversial episodes.
Psaki said during a press briefing:
“It’s a positive step but more can be done…This disclaimer, it’s a positive step but we want every platform to continue doing more to call out misinformation and disinformation while also uplifting accurate information.”
But apologizing to the “woke” cancel mob only invites more attacks.
A leftist group compiled a video of Rogan saying the N-word completely out of context in various episodes of his show.
That triggered the Left to move from charges of misinformation to racism in order to have Rogan removed.
CNN was openly calling for Rogan to be fired.
Rogan apologized for the video and Spotify bent the knee further.
The company allegedly removed at least 70 episodes from Rogan’s archive.
Spotify CEO Daniel Ek said to a town hall of “woke” staffers:
“I think it’s important you’re aware that we’ve had conversations with Joe and his team about some of the content in his show, including his history of using some racially insensitive language. Following these discussions and his own reflections, he chose to remove a number of episodes from Spotify. He also issued his own apology over the weekend.”
The Left smell blood in the water, so they won’t stop coming for Rogan.
He has too many followers and cannot be controlled, so they want him removed from the chessboard entirely.
Rogan gets 11 million viewers and listeners per episode, which dwarfs CNN’s and MSNBC’s numbers.
With the critical 2022 midterms around the corner, the Democrats do not want Rogan undermining their efforts.
They need a near media monopoly in order to maintain control.
