Professional agitator and man-child Joe Rogan has warned that “straight white men” may never speak again if the world goes fully “woke”.
And you know what? We’re here for that. Please do hit that mute button.
Rogan, who has a reported $100 million Spotify deal for his eponymous podcast, explained how straight white men will not be “allowed to talk” or even “go outside” soon because of “woke” culture.
“You can never be woke enough, that’s the problem,” the 53-year-old host of The Joe Rogan Experience moaned to comedian Joe List – and his estimated 11 million listeners.
“It keeps going. It keeps going further and further and further down the line and if you get to the point where you capitulate, where you agree to all these demands, it’ll eventually get to ‘straight white men are not allowed to talk’.
“Because it’s your privilege to express yourself when other people of colour have been silenced throughout history.
“It will be, you’re not allowed to go outside. Because so many people were imprisoned for so many…”
That’s when List began to laugh in disbelief. “I’m not joking,” Rogan added, “it really will get there. It’s that crazy.
“We just gotta be nice to each other, man. And there’s a lot of people that are taking advantage of this weirdness in our culture, and then that becomes their thing.
“Their thing is calling people out for their privilege, calling people out for their position. You know, so, it’s f***ing crazy times.
List chimed in: “But I feel like I hear more people speaking out against that kind of stuff than I hear from people saying that’s a good idea.”
Rogan capped off his weird rant by lamenting that films such as Superbad and Step Brothers would never be made today. They would be “cancelled”, he said.
“Can you make a good comedy movie anymore,” he said, “or have they made it so dangerous in terms of being cancelled, that comedy movies are no longer something you can do?”
We can confirm that, following a brief Google search, there are many, many comedy movies out and to be released this year.
Countless Twitter users leapt into Rogan’s mentions to stress that, no, Rogan and straight white men are not going to be silenced anytime soon. Many were seemingly stunned that he, someone with more than 7 million followers, came to the conclusion that he did.
