For the first time in recorded history, a span of more than 1.1 million days if one were to go back to 1000 BCE, straight white men may not be able to speak freely, if former “News Radio” actor and podcaster Joe Rogan is to be believed.
Rogan, a straight white man who received $100 million dollars to speak freely despite having dangerous opinions on a number of subjects, recently inveighed about how tough it is out there with all the cancel culture and woke mobs and what have you they have these days.
In a wild diatribe about something on the latest episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” Rogan whined, in a matter of seconds, that nobody makes funny movies anymore and also “straight white men are not allowed to talk.”
“Can you make a good comedy movie anymore, or have they made it so dangerous in terms of being canceled, that comedy movies are no longer something you can do?” Rogan wondered.
Rogan need not worry, “comedy” remains one of the most popular and most prevalent genres on both film and TV.
“You can never be woke enough, that’s the problem,” Rogan continued. “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 color have been silenced throughout history.”
The ex-”Fear Factor” host went on to say that soon enough straight white men wouldn’t even be allowed outdoors.
Around this time, Rogan, a 53-year-old man, had to inform his guest, who was laughing at Rogan’s absurd statements, that he was serious.
“I’m not joking. It really will get there. It’s that crazy,” Rogan said, without evidence, on his podcast that has about 11 million subscribers.
According to reports, Rogan’s lament arrived in millions of people’s AirPods after a friend, who is white, did a racist impression of an Asian person during a stand-up set and lost an agent.
