“You look at guys like Ron DeSantis who kept Florida open and had some pretty reasonable policies about what to do about Covid”
Here we go again. Back in January, singer Neil Young pulled his music from Spotify, claiming that Joe Rogan was spreading misinformation about COVID, causing many people on the left to demand the platform dump Rogan.
Now the left is once again demanding the same thing because during a recent episode of his podcast, Rogan said “vote Republican.”
Rogan was explaining to a guest how voters who are angry about how the pandemic was handled can express their desire for some sort of recourse, but the left has become so insane that even suggesting someone vote Republican is an unforgivable sin.

Joe Rogan’s call to ‘vote Republican’ sparks demands to boycott Spotify
Joe Rogan’s declaration over the weekend that he plans to vote for Republican Party candidates because of Democrats’ “errors” in their management of the COVID pandemic has ignited calls to boycott his streaming home, Spotify.
The host of the popular “The Joe Rogan Experience” told his guest, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, on Saturday that he and others should “vote Republican.”
The two men agreed that Democratic governors and state legislatures imposed mitigation measures and lockdowns that were deemed by some to be heavy-handed, such as closures of businesses, restaurants and schools.
Rogan and Rodgers also mentioned California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s outing at a restaurant where he sat unmasked in close proximity to other diners while his state banned indoor dining.
“I hope there’s lessons learned in this because this is a new thing,” Rogan said.
“We had never had this before. No one that was alive today had ever experienced a true pandemic and I’m hoping that now that this is over, people are going to recognize that some serious errors were made and not repeat those.”
The clip has now been watched a million times on Twitter. Here it is:

The usual suspects of the ‘Occupy Democrats’ have jumped on this. Note their accusations of fascism. Biden has normalized that for them.
If you support a boycott of Spotify until they drop Joe Rogan’s podcast after he just ignorantly urged Americans to “vote Republican” as payback for businesses closing down due to the pandemic — dangerous rhetoric as the GOP embraces full fascism — please retweet and follow us!

On a side note, I have been meaning to tell you, dear Legal Insurrection readers, that I have joined Twitchy as a contributor, and this was actually the subject of my first post there.
I’m not leaving Legal Insurrection, I just took on another gig because I found that I have way too much free time.
