The battle lines are being drawn over the war on free speech, and it seems like everyone is getting in on the debate.
As you likely know by now, there was huge hoopla over Joe Rogan inviting on the well-respected Dr. Malone to discuss an alternate point of view for COVID-19 and the vaccine.
The “freedom-loving” left, who now stands with Big Pharma and government, was infuriated that Rogan would invite someone on who disagreed with the regime’s narrative and “rockin’ in the free world” hippie singer Neil Young had his music pulled from Spotify over the debate.
Joe Rogan, who is a reluctant hero, and who never really expected to be put in this position, took to Instagram where he made a video explaining his side of the story and trying to smooth things over and even agreed to have a more “balanced” debate on his show from now on.
Of course, that wasn’t good enough for the rabid loons on the left, who are still calling for Joe’s head on a platter.
You never apologize to the mob.
But the good news is it looks like Joe has a new supporter – and he’s “solid as a rock.”
It’s Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who publically showed his support for Rogan.
Bizpacreview reported that after Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and guitarist Nils Lofgren yanked their music from Spotify last week, Rogan posted a ten-minute video on Instagram in response to his critics, garnering a comment from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson that has gained a lot of attention.
“Great stuff here brother,” wrote Johnson. “Perfectly articulated. Look forward to coming on one day and breaking out the tequila with you.”
“Fox & Friends Weekend” co-host Will Cain joined “Fox & Friends First” Wednesday and praised Johnson for voicing his support at a time when mainstream culture seems willing to accept censorship.
“It’s the pop culture, acceptable thing right now to call for misinformation,” Cain said. “I was driving around in Dallas the other day listening to what used to be one of my favorite sports radio stations — a host who could have been canceled any of a thousand times over the last 20 years — openly say, ‘Well, you have a responsibility when you’re talking about public health’ and call for censorship. I was appalled, but I think that ultimately those sports radio hosts were sheep because mainstream, acceptable culture right now seems to be accepting censorship.”
“So here’s Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson swimming the other way, swimming upstream and saying he supports Joe Rogan,” Cain continued. “I find that very encouraging. Most notably because I think it is rare. Unfortunately, I think it’s pretty rare today to be, as you described me, so gratuitously and accurately I might say, as a free speech proponent. Who in the United States of America now truly stands for free speech?”
Well, I will say this much, in this day and age it’s pretty “ballsy” for someone famous to come out and support free speech – as sad as that is to say – but that’s where we’re at right now in this crazy country.
