(RepublicanDaily.org) – Podcaster Joe Rogan launched a new volley against wokeness last week when he slammed left-wing comedian Jimmy Kimmel for caving in to political correctness. Rogan pointed out that Kimmel wasn’t always like he is now but seems to have been captured by a “leftist thought bubble.”
Joe Rogan explains the woke mind virus perfectly: Elon Musk makes a joke using pronouns. Jimmy Kimmel retaliates and gets accused of transphobia. Jimmy Kimmel has a history of blackface and misogyny. But he’s desperate to protect his place in Hollywood. That’s how this works. pic.twitter.com/qXnLJVD91M

On the December 26 episode of his popular “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, he discussed how wokeness sets traps for even left-wing comedians. On December 11, Twitter owner Elon Musk tweeted, “My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci,” in a swipe at the Biden administration’s controversial chief scientific adviser. The joke was popular with conservatives, but Kimmel quickly hit back with, ”Your pronouns are a**/hole.”
Rogan actually thought Kimmel’s reply was funny — but many liberals didn’t. People immediately started accusing Kimmel of being transphobic for mocking pronoun use, and Rogan says that’s all down to the woke ideology that Kimmel himself has bought into. He said Kimel has “done some pretty outrageous s**t” during his comedy career, including appearing in blackface — which he took some criticism for and apologized.
Now he’s afraid of upsetting the woke activists who are now calling him transphobic. After this latest incident, he might be more careful in the future, and comedians who are careful not to offend anyone tend not to be very funny. Rogan says too much is becoming “forbidden and toxic,” and Kimmel has to take some of the blame for that.
