Joe Rogan: Giving in to 'Woke Mob' Will Result in 'Straight White Men' Being Silenced
Podcast stars says cancel culture is destroying America
Podcast star Joe Rogan gave some sobering thoughts about the rise of cancel culture and its effect on society overall.
Rogan spoke with Joe List about how 'wokeism' was consuming America and warned about the consequences of giving in to the cancel mob.
“If you agree to all these demands, it’ll eventually get to straight white men are not allowed to talk,” Rogan said during the conversation with List.
Rogan noted that we’re living in “f**king crazy times."

Last year, Rogan blasted leftist celebrities for simply wanting attention while being so "wrapped up in the liberal, progressive ideology."
"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 f------g morons… You’re taking responsibility?
"No, you’re trying to get attention.
"That’s what you’re doing,” Rogan said.
Earlier this month, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) called on his fellow Republicans to "grow a backbone" and "stand up" to the "woke" agenda of corporate America.
Speaking during a Saturday appearance on Fox News’s “Watters’ World,” Cruz warned about the dangers of so-called “wokeness.”
The Texas senator said the "woke" mob is now buoyed by support from corporate America.
“[I] think wokeness is trying to destroy America, and we’re seeing whether it’s the corporate media or big business," Cruz warned.
"We are seeing woke corporations that are engaged as the political enforcers of the radical left, and are trying to silence or trying to cancel," he said.
"They’re trying to punish American citizens, and I think it is profoundly dangerous."
"Look, we’ve got to grow a backbone,” Cruz blasted.
"We’ve got to stand up to big business, and we’ve got to take on Big Tech."
"We’ve got to use the antitrust laws to break up Big Tech to go after them for abusing their monopoly power."
