Joe Rogan Pulls Those Angered by COVID Restrictions to the Right

Ben Gingell /

Who had “Joe Rogan advocates for Republican votes” on their 2022 bingo card?

The August 27th edition of “The Joe Rogan Experience” featured Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers. While there, the two discussed COVID and the changes it brought upon the American people. When it came to the restrictions in California and across the U.S., Rogan hoped people walked away with “lessons learned.”

“I hope there’s lessons learned in this. Because this is a new thing. We had never had this before. No one who is alive today had ever experienced a true pandemic. And I’m hoping that, now that this is over, people are going to, you know, recognize that some serious errors were made and not repeat those. That’s the best you can get out of it.”

Rogan talked about people who were forced to close their businesses during the pandemic and “lost everything they ever worked for. As such he knows they were “just going to be angry.”

This inspired Rogers to ask him what he would tell those people. Rogan kept it simple. “Vote Republican.” Naturally, Rogers laughed at this and reminded him that they were likely to be doing that anyways.

Rogan has been drawing the ire of some Republicans recently for speaking out against what he sees as a “removal of freedoms” by more conservative members of the party when it comes to gay marriage and abortion. Given the number of people who have left the party over these stances, it’s a sign that Rogan is more in tune with today’s voters than many of the people calling the shots.

He pointed out a glaring deficiency that people like even Gov. DeSantis (R-FL) don’t seem to notice. More and more people are becoming middle of the road and less hard-line by the party. It’s all about what is best for the people everywhere. Most people no longer care about gay marriage, they could care less about someone else getting an abortion, and they don’t see the need to make a big deal about cannabis.

Yet, so many conservative Republicans do and they use their platform to have a loud voice telling everyone how wrong they are for not agreeing. This new “middle of the road tactic” has given Rogan one of the biggest podcast audiences on the planet and made him one of the most popular men in America. Maybe he needs to be helping the Republican party to get the votes in. Aaron Rogers could help, too, with his tale of COVID.

They discussed his status as “immunized,” which was something he was flighty about. “I’d been ready the entire time for this question and had thought about how I wanted to answer it. And I had come to the conclusion, I’m going to say, ‘I’ve been immunized.’ And if there’s a follow-up, then talk about my process.”

Rogers also realized that should he get COVID or if it came up, he would have to answer for it. “And that’s when the s—storm hit because now I’m a liar, I’m endangering the community, my teammates, all these people. And the attempted takedown of me and my word and my integrity began.”

People questioning him about getting a jab that has proven to be about as useless as tits on a bull are now wondering what they put in their bodies. While there are going to be tons of theories for ages, until more long-term peer-reviewed studies are out, we just won’t know for certain.

People like Rogers and Rogan have their own remedies and their own doctors they trust. These are people who don’t plug right into the big-pharma network and download the latest answers. They instead do their own research as well and learn the best courses of action. While the left calls them crazy, this is trusting the science. Trusting it by proving it.
