Obama Quietly Joins Cancel Culture Mob Going After Joe Rogan and Spotify

Obama Quietly Joins Cancel Culture Mob Going After Joe Rogan and Spotify

“The Obamas are said to be shopping for a new podcasting partner because they’re frustrated with the slow pace of development at Spotify”

Last week, aging rocker Neil Young tried to get podcast host Joe Rogan booted from Spotify, and it backfired. But the left has painted a target on Rogan, and they want him silenced. So now Obama has quietly entered the fray.

Obama has a podcast on Spotify, and it was somehow leaked to the media that he might leave them for another platform.

Adam Manno reports at the Daily Mail:

Are the Obamas leaving Spotify? Barack and Michelle are ‘preparing to shop for a new podcast partner’ amid frustration with the platform and outcry over Joe Rogan as their three-year-deal nears end

The Obamas are said to be shopping for a new podcasting partner because they’re frustrated with the slow pace of development at Spotify, where they’re more interested in introducing new voices than on hosting shows themselves.

Former President Barack Obama, 60, and former First Lady Michelle, 58, are looking at new deals with other companies, three podcast industry sources told Insider.

The duo’s Higher Ground Audio company signed a three-year deal with Spotify in June 2019, but sources say it can be hard to get a show green-lit at the Swedish music streamer.

Moreover, the Obamas are more interested in putting forth ‘young new voices’ rather than on carrying shows themselves, according to Vanity Fair, which first reported rumblings of the couple’s dissatisfaction.

The news comes as Spotify faces backlash over Joe Rogan, the most popular podcaster on the platform, over what some call his peddling of COVID-19 misinformation.

Are we supposed to believe this is just a coincidence?

The far left is already rallying the troops over this.

And just so you know this battle was never about COVID misinformation, the left has now reverted to their favorite line of attack by accusing Rogan of racism. Someone made a compilation clip video of Rogan using the “n” word repeatedly on his podcast, omitting any context for it.

Unfortunately, Rogan made the mistake of taking the bait and apologized.

This is from the New York Times:

Joe Rogan Apologizes for ‘Shameful’ Past Use of Racial Slur

As pressure has intensified on Spotify and Joe Rogan, its star podcaster, listeners reported that the company had quietly removed dozens of episodes of his show, while Rogan apologized early Saturday for his use of a racial slur in past episodes.

In an Instagram video, Rogan — whose talk show, “The Joe Rogan Experience,” is Spotify’s most popular podcast, and has been available there exclusively for more than a year — addressed what he called “the most regretful and shameful thing that I’ve ever had to talk about publicly.” A compilation video showed Rogan using the slur numerous times in past episodes of his show; it had been shared by the singer India.Arie, who removed her catalog from Spotify in protest of what she called Rogan’s “language around race.”

Rogan said the compilation was drawn from “12 years of conversations” on his show, and that it looked “horrible, even to me.” The clips, he said, had been taken out of context, which he said included discussions about how it had been used by comedians like Richard Pryor and Redd Foxx, who were Black, and Lenny Bruce, who was white. Rogan said he has not spoken the slur “in years.”

Popular YouTube podcaster Tim Pool says Rogan is making his situation worse:

Conservative entertainment critic Christian Toto agrees:

Joe Rogan Is Suddenly Doing Everything Wrong

Joe Rogan thinks his enemies will accept apologies, context and humility.

He couldn’t be more wrong on all three fronts. And he’s finding that out in real time.

Rogan’s latest battle began when Neil Young removed his music from Spotify, home of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” last month. The classic rocker recoiled at Rogan spreading “misinformation” about COVID-19.

Young isn’t a doctor nor a medical expert. He ignored how much misinformation is shared across media landscapes on a variety of topics, including the pandemic.

The star who once headlined a Freedom of Speech tour was now attempting to deplatform a comedian for saying the “wrong” thing…

Now, Rogan is back on Instagram, offering more apologies for comments he’s made in the past. This time, he responded to someone who edited a series of “JRE” moments where he used the n-word. The comic didn’t assault anyone with the toxic word, he either quoted someone else who used it or shared other stories involving it.

The incidents are all several years old. That didn’t matter to his critics, though, who used the clip assortment to renew their attacks on him.

Comedian Tim Dillon, who has been a repeated guest on Rogan’s show and knows him personally, offered this:

Ben Shapiro has also been a guest and he agrees:

Ironically, Joe Rogan enjoys a greater approval rating than Joe Biden, according to a recent poll.

The only question now is whether or not Spotify will cave to the left.

Comments

I notice he’s not jumping on the Caryn Elaine Johnson firing on the view bandwagon.

Let me know when Harry and Meghan ditch Spotify in protest, beyond just privately telling them they don’t like “misinformation” like Rogan’s. If I recall, Spotify gave them $25 million to do podcasts for them. It’s been a year and so far, they haven’t produced a single podcast.

    Princess Harry and Duke Meagan are two of the most pathetic a-holes this side of the Squad member. As for the Duke, I can see her selling her soul for her vanity – she’s a Hollywood type. But Princess Harry has sold out his brothers in arms and his country so the Duke can live out her delusions of grandeur.

    The Duke made a fatal error: she believed her own hype. She should have played it cool. She banged out a few kids at Princess Harry’s expense, but those kids are about as respectable as the Kardashian kids, who Kim is whoring out – and eight year old! – to Tik Tok:

Rogan doesn’t have the cojones to fight this. He’s going to lose his money, he’s already lost me as a listener because he won’t fight. I can’t be the only one disappointed in this pansy.

Would be nice if someone stood up to the left.

    I think he’s stuck between two worlds: Hollywood and the rest of the country. In other words, he wants to salvage his stand-up career (for what it’s worth) and still get guests from Hollywood on his podcast.

    But, as we’ve seen, you can’t have it both ways, and poor Joe has sold out to appease the left.

    It’s a tough call – Joe’s not a patriot per se . But what’s very interesting is that the more he probes guests, the more of a patriot he becomes!

    How Joe screwed up is by not looking to the expert on how to handle this kind of crap: Rush Limbaugh. Rush showed how to do it. Joe declined the advice.

    Joe is going to get booed by the MMA crowd, so his MMA announcing career is in peril.

    Joe, you’re a mediocre stand up comedian at BEST. But you’re a BRILLIANT podcaster, who is leading millions of people to come alongside your superb sense of curiosity.

    Joe, you go either the way of that establishment hack like Dwayne “The Rock” (a rock, my ass) Johnson or you stay Joe Rogan. You can’t have it both ways.

      “Rush Limbaugh. Rush showed how to do it.” Hardly a good role model given all he did was talk unmitigated crap, spewing conspiratorial nonsense in the most click baity fashion he could think of. Given his equally poor record on a number of issues.

Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No resume, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, can’t tell the truth, no understanding of how the global economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls, nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance and proven criminal. Also exposed for illegal treasonous activities in coup to destroy a duly elected President Trump and related staff.
It is really sad that the first black POTUS turned out to be a corrupt traitor. Nobody has done more damage to our Country and American blacks than Obama. What could have been an honest and honorable term will go down as a legacy of shame, corruption, dishonesty, sedition, and disaster that will hurt the chances of any future minority candidates. I don’t think Obama worked alone as he lacks the intelligence to do so, but working for and or coached by somebody else, i.e. Valerie Jarrett/George Soros.
Clint Eastwood’s empty chair said it all!

    I could’ve wrote that. Well I could’ve. Almost. Maybe. Sort of. Half way. Well some of it. Maybe a little. Oh damn you, cowboy!

    An excellent comment worth a dozen thumbs up.

    “Eloquent?” He’s a teleprompter reader.

    Off teleprompter, he’s a dumbell and a nose-picker:

    Above all, he’s the first adult in public life to wear a media diaper, and have it changed dutifully every day.

    Obama is worse than a corrupt traitor: he’s a hate-monger on the scale of Hitler. (Again, the media diaper cleaning it up.) But Obama is not nearly as talented or gutsy as Hitler was. (Give Hitler his due, or suffer another Hitler when you see one coming up the ranks – such as the Squad members in Congress.)

    Resume – President of the United States
    Accomplishments – killing bin Laden as commander in chief, Medicare (very popular) , left the economy in good shape to his successor.

    I’m not sure what you are referring to with respect to treasonous activities?

bart simpsonson | February 6, 2022 at 1:06 pm

Perhaps the “slow pace of development” for the Oblamos’ channel is because not that many people want to hear any more from the empty suit.

    I take it that Spotify paid the Obamas up front to partner with them with the expectation that they would actually be the ones making appearances and given that they don’t want to do so the business relationship is fractured to the point that this will be a way for both sides to part ways while blaming Rogan for it.

      Spodify probably recieved some kind of payoff from Obama while Obama was infesting the White House. That’s how his 63 million dollar book deal was paid back after he gave
      Pearson Publishing $350 million to create Commoncore text and thus Pearson gave Obama a $65 million dollar book deal in return.

      Pearson Publishing was paid for Commoncore but Penguin Random House Publishing did the Obama book deal. But there is commonality with the two:

      Penguin Random House was formed on July 1, 2013, upon the completion of a £2.4 billion transaction between Bertelsmann and Pearson to merge their respective trade publishing companies, Random House and Penguin Group. Bertelsmann and Pearson, the parent companies, owning 53% and 47%, respectively. In July 2017, Pearson agreed to sell a 22% stake in the business to Bertelsmann, thereby retaining a 25% holding.

    More than likely it is just grift. The book publishers do the same things. Give some shit eating corrupt politican a big advance for something they know will never be published, or if it is published, will be ghost written and lose money. They don’t care though as they have bought some influence.

I heard that Yoko Ono has threatened to upload her music to Spotify if Rogan isn’t dropped.

Doesn’t surprise me in the least, mostly because I think through proxies he is running much of the show.
His transformation of the country is still going on.

    He’s definitely infested inside the “Biden” administraiton, but he’s no braintrust – just a booster. Look to see who is inside the “Biden” administration: Obama parasite Susan Rice.

    Grenell calls Susan Rice the ‘shadow president’ and ‘no one is paying attention’:

    He’s not the puppeteer, he’s just one of the older puppets.
    When unknown Obama sprang forth (fully formed like Athena from the head of Zeus) to give the nominating speech for Bill Clinton, for most people it was a “who the hell is this guy?” moment.
    I distinctly remember thinking “this is the guy they’re grooming for the next cycle.”
    It was obvious they had chosen him for his black privilege, to play on our white guilt.
    And that was back before ceramic coating treatments were available for my crystal ball.

Give him 10 more Covid shots then force him to shovel snow.

Sounds to me like Obama wants to get paid for someone else spouting his nonsense.

Nobody has identified what Joe’s “misinformation” consists of.

Obama is still a thing?

    Personally, I think he and Michelle these past couple years have hated not being able to jet around the world and make big bucks giving speeches to adoring crowds, partially paid for by the taxpayer (ie. the Secret Service). I will be interested in seeing as we get closer to November which one of them is going to be seen more often on the campaign trail stumping for candidates. Right now I think it will be her.

    But given who is working in the Biden administration, it’s the 3rd term of the Obama administration.

      These two grifters lived like billionaires at our expense while infesting the White House. Now they’re merely wealthy but well below the cenimillionaire class. And hated by half the nation.

“”Joe Rogan thinks his enemies will accept apologies, context and humility.””

Because everybody knows that blood in the water is the best way to repel sharks, right?

    henrybowman in reply to txvet2. | February 6, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    At heart, Rogan is not a conservative and never has been. He’s a Kennedy-era liberal. He still wants to think that the left is sincere but misguided. He doesn’t yet understand that the left sends smiling children out to hug you with IEDs in their backpacks.

I think the best move for Rogan might be to invite Barack Obama to come onto his show for an interview.

    My2centshere in reply to james h. | February 6, 2022 at 3:29 pm

    First question should be why did you use so many drones during your tenure?

    Char Char Binks in reply to james h. | February 6, 2022 at 5:39 pm

    He could ask barack what the settled science is on le coof, then bring him back in a few weeks for the new settled science.

    amatuerwrangler in reply to james h. | February 6, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    First question: Had you read the legislation before you said that we could keep our plans and keep our doctor under the Affordable Care Act?

    Follow up: How about before you said that illegal aliens would not be eligible for coverage?

    More follow up: can you read?

But Rogan would be kissing his a$$
Rogan, that we thought we knew, is gone….

    Char Char Binks in reply to gonzotx. | February 6, 2022 at 5:56 pm

    What I like most about Rogan is that the Left hates him. I never have time to sit and watch his long-form interviews, but I sometimes enjoy shorter clips. If he loses his integrity, and allows himself to become controlled opposition, he will be irrelevant.

    Apologizing is a misstep (as it was for Bill Maher when he uttered the enword), but I hope Joe recovers and retakes his rightful role as a thorn in the side of Progressives.

    Meanwhile, I enjoy Dark Horse with Brett Weinstein and Heather Heying, two REAL SCIENTISTS and liberals who stand up to Woke nonsense, and Russell Brand, a free spirit with surprising integrity and a willingness to challenge orthodoxy.

Umm umm umm O Ba Ma!!!

As the report says, Neither Obama wants to be on there (focusing on young voices my ass!) talking off the cuff…they want a teleprompter or they are useless…original thought is not their strong suit. The podcast is a political liability for them but their name gives them another way to grift money from it

Comanche Voter | February 6, 2022 at 5:47 pm

He was the “New Lightworker” in the press in 2008. What the press didn’t realize was that he was and is one lazy sumbitch and a “light” worker. And now Ol Barack could stand to swallow at least a six pack of STFU.

Victor Immature | February 7, 2022 at 5:49 am

No one digging into Howie Stern’s past or Jimmie Kimmel’s, huh? Ya, they went woke as insurance against cancel culture. Phonies.

Rogan aint gonna win ANYONE over with an apology tour. If he was gonna be a spineless shill he should’ve followed their lead.

First Barack and Michelle Obama are, at a minimum, socialists They have no respect for constitutional rights, only for lawyerly ways to supersede the constitution.

As far as Rogan is concerned, he’s learning a valuable lesson in how the left plays the cancel game, the go for the throat. They have no desire to hear you’re sorry, only that you’re gone and will keep on adding more layers of cancel until you’re gone because, if you don’t go, they show how vulnerable they are, and they certainly don’t want that.

Good riddance !

Sooner or later, someone with broad shoulders will take responsibility for letting the American People see Obama’s academic record at Columbia U, and Harvard LS . Obama campaigned as a moderate but clearly was a radical who played the race card whenever opposition was raised to his policies , appeased terror, threw Israel under the bus, and destroyed our armed forces Obama was the first woke president

He going to come out and hit up the young turks also?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCv5k8WA_sU&t=17s

Total number of people who subscribed to Obama’s podcast strangely absent from article. Also unknown; what % of Americans knew that Obama had a podcast?

I could care in the least what Obama has to say. He’s not exactly a role model of a good person.
