By now, just about everyone is aware of Joe Rogan’s problems with Spotify.
He has found himself with some big-time allies on the right side of the aisle, though.
Governor DeSantis is among them, and he had some advice for Rogan and a few choice words for the media.
Do Not Kow to the Mob
Rogan has sympathized with the left his entire career.
As a matter of fact, he was a big Bernie Sanders supporter during the election.
However, since Biden has taken office, Rogan has sounded more like a conservative than a liberal.
After his vaccine pushback, the liberal world turned on him, then the trolls dug up old episodes of Rogan using the N-word in context, only he actually said it.
Now Rogan is candidate one to be canceled, but he is feeding into it by offering up apology after apology.
For the left, an apology is akin to a shark smelling blood in the water… they attack!
On Rogan’s dilemma, DeSantis stated, “No, he shouldn’t have apologized. I mean, you see what happens?
“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. And with COVID, he’s just bringing opposing views. He’s letting people decide.
“They say he’s against [the COVID vaccine]. I do not listen to his show, but then I read he specifically advocated for people with co-morbidities and elderly to get vaccinated.”
DeSantis continued, “I think a lot of the legacy outlets and I think the left fear the fact that he can reach so many people, and so they’re out to destroy him. But what I would say is don’t give an inch.
“Do not apologize. Do not kow to the mob. Stand up and tell them to pound sand; if you do that, there’s really nothing that they’re able to do to you.
“The only way they have power is if you let them get your goat.”
On the mistrust of the media, DeSantis added, “Well, I think when people are going to look back at this, they’re going to look at outlets like CNN, New York Times as having spewed misinformation they claim to be policing it.
“But if you look from the beginning, who was advocating for lockdowns? CNN and New York Times. Who is advocating for school closures? Those outlets. Who has advocated for force masking of kids? Those outlets.”
He continued, “And then what ends up happening? Johns Hopkins does the study. Lockdowns didn’t work. You look to see masked jurisdictions do no better than unmasked jurisdictions.
“All the things they’ve said. It seems like you wait six, 12 months and then basically the narratives blow up. Now they will never go back and admit they were wrong. They will never go back and do a mea culpa.
“It’ll just move on to the next thing and craft the next narrative.”
DeSantis continued to rip the media, which is especially justified when considering how they treated him and his wife during her cancer treatment.
The Governor stated, “I mean, just think when Trump was president, I mean, you know, you had some of these major legacy outlets ran for years with unproven conspiracy theory about Russia collusion. And that was meant to basically divide the country.
“They wanted to mobilize against Trump as much as they talk about the 2020. They didn’t accept the 2016 election. They wanted to basically nullify that result.
“And so how is that something that’s bringing people together?
“And so I think that, you know, there’s a lot of different reasons, but I think the role of some of those, what I would say are failed legacy outlets, the way they’re trying to get relevance again is to basically play to a base and try to be financially viable as a result.
“But the result is, I think, you know, they’re trying to sow divisions rather than, you know, be a little bit more even-handed in ways that people may find common ground.”
DeSantis continues to be the leading candidate to get the nod if Trump decides to run.
Even if Trump does run, DeSantis will surely be part of the conversation and a top VP candidate.
