Everything Bernie is talking about is just the norm for the majority of the Western world. Banned assault rifles here in nz and the world hasn't fallen apart. Still a more "free" country than American.
Just because some vocal people here on Era tell you Joe is alt-right, doesn't make it a fact.I have to say, all the Era talk about Rogan being unequivocally alt-right doesnt at all square with the contents of this podcast. He gave Sanders a platform first of all, gave him free reign to basically go wherever he wanted, asked very charitable questions, agreed with a lot of not most of what he said. I get that Joe also has a lot of suspect opinions himself that he shouldnt get a free pass for, but this podcast still contradicts a lot of what has been said about him here.
I guess reality is a little more complex than a lot of people make it out to be.
I didn't say anything about Sanders in my comment you were referring to. You were so quick to jump on me you extrapolated something I didn't even say.You don't have to like joe rogan, but it's weird to tsk tsk sanders for getting his message out on a popular platform. Rogan has garbage people on, but he has good people too. Cornel West was just on a month ago and the ratings and comments all appear very positive.
Seems like a huge wasted opportunity to not try to reach out on such a big platform with a gullible audience.
Exactly what NZ is doing. But that apparently makes us communists according to the US right wing
It doesn't much matter what he personally thinks he believes when we have objective receipts of who he gives a platform to.
Nah, fuck that. He is a grown ass man that is responsible for the people he brings on his podcast.Also people don’t listen to Rogan so they get political ideas,they listen to him to relax and hear about random shit about nature, space, the world, humans. Main problem with Joe is he doesn’t realize people like Rubin and Peterson have a different agenda. I’ve listened to 1000s of hours of JRE and Rogan isn’t right wing. He doesn’t know every tactic that the right uses so he doesn’t know how to tell assholes from non assholes. He is a smart dumb person that is curious about hearing from people. Sometimes that benefited the show because he brings on some interesting people, sometimes he brings on some really bad people.
It means he is giving them a platform to spout their views, one where they will not be significantly challenged to the degree they deserve/need to be. That is doing harm.
So call him a bad journalist or a bad interviewer then. He hardly challenged Sanders in this interview, does that make him a Sanders supporter now?
The main problem with him is he gives platforms to bad influences and doesn't check them. He lets them say what they want, responds "woah dude you're blowing my mind" and his audience eats it up. It's not that he's alt-right, it's more that he's just dumb.
Wel he isn't a journalist haha, far from that. I don't know that he's a bad interviewer, he's bad for the cause though. He platformed someone more on our side this time, but a shit wrapped in fine silk is still shit, you can't do bad shit and then say "well I did something not bad" and be free from criticism. Nobody forced him to have people like Jordan Petersen on, I don't think having Bernie on makes up for it or excuses it.
Exactly. At best, Joe is a useful idiot for the alt-right.
I don't know, he's such a stammering little prick. I remember that video where he and rubin were talking about whether or not religious people could attend a gay couple's engagement party and you could see rubin's head explode inside even though he tried to keep up his "I'm totally reasonable and tolerant even of intolerance" facade
Unfortunately it feels like a lot of posters here only deal in black and white and wouldn’t be caught dead near anyone that disagrees with them. A lot of posters o see here are displaying the same behavior they excoriate Fox News for.
