As the Joe Rogan controversy continues to heat up, CNN jumped on the bandwagon to condemn him and even compared him to January 6th, their favorite event in history. CNN came out with an “Analysis” by John Blake claiming that Joe Rogan’s mistakes and those who stand by him are, “arguably just as dangerous as what a mob did when they stormed the US Capitol on January 6 last year.” The analysis went on to claim that Rogan’s rhetoric leads to things like the Rwandan Genocide. This is obviously an outlandish claim with no real standing.
This inflammatory language from CNN is nothing new, but this “analysis” brings the criticism of Rogan to a whole new level. Joe Rogan has made mistakes in the past, ones which he has already apologized for, but CNN just can’t let it go.
Meanwhile, many people are jumping to Joe Rogan’s defense, including President Donald Trump. Trump wrote on his website, Save America, “Joe Rogan is an interesting and popular guy, but he’s got to stop apologizing to the Fake News and Radical Left maniacs and lunatics. How many ways can you say you’re sorry? Joe, just go about what you do so well and don’t let them make you look weak and frightened. That’s not you and it never will be!” Although Trump sounds slightly upset with Rogan for his apology and posture going forward, it’s clear that Trump stands against the cancel culture mob like he always has.
Trump isn’t the only person who has weighed in on the controversy. Israel Adesanya, a UFC champion who was born in Nigeria, said in a press conference, “Joe Rogan is one of the nicest, coolest, mother f****** I’ve had the pleasure of working with.” He followed that comment by telling Joe Rogan to “F*** the noise!” It’s safe to say these comments didn’t make CNN too happy.
Tulsi Gabbard and Hershell Walker also weighed in on Twitter.
I may disagree with what you say, but I’m willing to sacrifice my life to protect your right to say it. The campaign to silence @JoeRogan shines a light on the bigger issue: the power elite will silence anyone who dares challenge or question their power. @MMAJunkie pic.twitter.com/E1OVrdChMC

Cancel culture is destroying the country. @JoeRogan is not a racist. In fact, I’m proud to call him a friend. He is successful and speaks the TRUTH, which is why the media hates him. https://t.co/mqRX9p99hb

Joe Rogan is far too big to be canceled, he has too many fans that will follow him wherever he goes, regardless of what Spotify chooses to do. The cancel culture mob went after the wrong person and is about to get crushed.
