Joe Rogan Blasts 'Dumb' Liberal Celebrities: Too 'Wrapped Up in Progressive Ideology'
Podcast host slams virtue signalling 'I Take Responsibility' campaign
Popular podcast host Joe Rogan blasted leftist celebrities involved in the “I Take Responsibility” campaign, which went viral amid the Black Lives Matter protests sweeping the US.
Rogan accused the actors of simply wanting attention while being so "wrapped up in the liberal, progressive ideology” that they couldn't see how “dumb” it looked.
Speaking on his podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience," he said:
“This latest thing where all these actors have this black and white video where they're talking about racism…. What are you doing?" Rogan asked.
"You know what that is? These mother-----s haven’t gotten any attention for months because they haven’t filmed,” Rogan added.
“You f------g morons… You’re taking responsibility? No, you’re trying to get attention. That’s what you’re doing,” Rogan said.
“If they ever feel like doing that again, call me, I’ll tell you how it’s gonna turn out.”
The “I Take Responsibility” campaign that went viral earlier this month, saw various white celebrities taking "responsibility for turning the racist tide in America."
They also denounced police brutality and committing to learning more "about issues facing the black community.”
Actors like Aaron Paul, Kesha, Justin Theroux, Debra Messing, Bryce Dallas Howard said, “I take responsibility" while staring into the camera, adding “every not-so-funny joke, every unfair stereotype, every blatant injustice."
“Going for a jog should not be a death sentence,” the celebrities continue.
“Sleeping in your own home should not be a death sentence. Playing video games with your nephew should not be a death sentence."
"Shopping in a store should not be a death sentence. Business, as usual, should not be life-threatening.”
Rogan urged actors thinking they could combat racism to “go to a f-----g doctor and get your head checked.”
The virtue-signaling video echoed that of actress Gal Gadot's video montage of celebs singing “Imagine,” which also sparked widespread criticism.
“Just the f—k up and wait, you’re a week away from filming again,” Rogan said.
“Some of them are so wrapped up in the liberal, progressive ideology that they literally can’t see how dumb this looks to the rest of the world.”
Earlier this month, Rogan, admitted he would rather vote for President Donald Trump over former Vice President Joe Biden, during a hypothetical general election match-up.
