Ex-President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis have urged Joe Rogan, a popular podcast host to cease apologizing for the cancellation culture mob.
Since a few old musical icons demanded that Rogan be taken off Spotify because of COVID misinformation, Rogan has been the topic of much controversy.
He further landed in a bit of hot water when a video surfaced of Rogan using the “n-word” in past podcasts.
Despite the compilation video lacking some level of context – Rogan has been a comedian for quite some time and most are afforded comedic license when it comes to saying offensive things – the breadth of his use of the reprehensible slur led to an apology.
Rogan said the video was the “most regretful and shameful thing” he’s ever had to talk about adding, “I clearly have f***ed up.”
It was to be Rogan’s second apology since the Spotify furor began.
Rogan offered concessions to the mob of outraged musicians and apologized to Spotify a little over a week earlier.

Joe Rogan and Cancel Culture
Late Monday night, President Trump released a statement asking Joe Rogan not to apologize to the woke mob and pointing out that it wouldn’t be enough to cancel his contract.
“Joe Rogan is an interesting and popular guy, but he’s got to stop apologizing to the Fake News and Radical Left maniacs and lunatics,” he said.
Rogan is by no means a fan of Trump, having called him “f***ing dangerous” following the Capitol riot and calling for an investigation into that day’s events.
Still, Trump’s statement lent clear support to the podcast host.
“How many ways can you say you’re sorry?” Trump wondered. “Joe, just go about what you do so well and don’t let them make you look weak and frightened. That’s not you and it never will be!”
Steady with @joeroganIt will be only a matter time until the leftist elite comes after you and your family members for refusing to comply with their wishes.

Ron DeSantis from Florida is the frontrunner to the Republican nomination in 2024. IfTrump declares that he will not be running.
DeSantis spoke out against the liberal media in a Fox News interview. DeSantis explained to Fox News that Joe Rogan’s apology would only encourage the cancel culture mob to pursue him harder.
“No, he shouldn’t have apologized. You’ll see the consequences. The mob will come after people, and they’re targeting Rogan because he’s threatening to upset the apple cart on some of the things that they’re holding dear,” he said.

DeSantis also pointed out that the initial objections were for ‘COVID misinformation’ when in reality Rogan was simply hosting discussions with opposing viewpoints – something truly unbiased media outlets should consider.
“And with COVID, he’s just bringing opposing views. He’s letting people decide,” the Republican governor said. “They say he’s against [the vaccine]. I do not listen to his show, but then I read he specifically advocated for people with co-morbidities and elderly to get vaccinated.”
DeSantis then suggested that Rogan’s popularity was a reason why the leftist media wants to kill him.
Rogan himself has said one outlet in particular, CNN, is taking a hit because more popular individuals such as himself are beginning to call them out for ‘fake news.’
CNN chastised him for using what they defined simply as a “horse dewormer,” which Rogan managed to get the network’s chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, to admit was something they never should have said.
CNN host Don Lemon continued to criticize Rogan despite Gupta’s admission.
“When you’re saying something,” Rogan responded, “and then the person you’re saying it about has literally tens times the audience you do, you dumb motherf***** …”
“Do you know what you did? You just proved my point.”
The liberal media and cancel culture mob has proven Trump’s and DeSantis’ point time and time again. They won’t stop. In fact, they’re even more motivated once you start issuing apologies.
