Joe Rogan’s Comments About Inviting Both Sides On His Show Won’t Appease Those Angry With Him – Opinion

If the virtues of fairness and reasonability are practiced by the majority, they are good for both the individual as well as society. Increasingly, the two have been less and less utilized, and that’s because the loudest, but the smallest group in our society, the mainstream media, has used its platform to make the two virtues seem dangerous.

This has had the unintended result that west society is hungry for conversation and balance. There are very few main stream figures who provide it. They have become the default destination for viewers and listeners looking for greater understanding among different groups. One host providing this is podcast king, Joe Rogan, who has a regular listenership of 11 million people, a testament to where America’s heart is despite the mainstream left’s attempts to divide us.

The left is furious, and attempts to cancel Rogan or censor him have failed. This includes 270 medical “experts” sending a letter to Spotify, Spotify employees attempting to put pressure on the company to censor him, and celebrities like Neil Young proclaiming that he’ll take his music off Spotify if they don’t get rid of Rogan.

They all failed, and they only made themselves look foolish in the process, especially the 270 medical “experts” who only ended up being composed mostly of influencers.

But Rogan is reasonable and fair, and in a show of good faith, took to Instagram to tell everyone that he’s more than happy to put more people on from the left in order for them to weigh in and have their say. As RedState reported, he disagreed with the idea that he’s been spreading “misinformation” the podcast show host made it clear that he bears no ill-will toward anyone who’s trying to cancel him and that he only hopes the conversation can be more balanced.

It is an excellent thing for those who love fairness and reasonability. It is good to listen to both sides. Even opponents should try to understand each other’s point of view in order to fully grasp the situation.

But if Rogan was hoping this would appease his critics, he’s very mistaken. The issue many of these people on the left are having isn’t that he’s giving more time to one side than the other, it’s that he’s giving time to both sides at all.

Leftist ideology can’t survive in isolation. Open debate is oftentimes the death of their arguments, which is why you’ll find very few leftists are willing to engage in open debate with the right. In fact, you’ll find that arguments on Twitter often end with the leftist proclaiming victimhood in some form as their arguments are ripped apart by people in their comments. It’s become the most common way of leftists pulling the escape chord so they can keep their arguments and their worldview intact.

The left’s goal (and to be clear, I’m speaking of the radical left as Rogan has many leftist listeners) isn’t balance, it’s domination. They won’t be satisfied until Rogan is either toeing the party line or erased from the platform entirely. There is no in-between because it’s the in-between where their arguments collapse.

The truth is that the world is far more nuanced than one side’s opinion. The truth can sometimes be difficult for either side of an argument. Listening to both sides of an argument can be frustrating. The best thing for you is to take the information and make your own rational decisions.

The radical left believes rationality is poison. Their mission isn’t to think critically, it’s to push a worldview on others that further empower their groups and leaders. Anything that hinders this must be stopped by total censorship and/or destruction. Rogan’s promise for more balance will only anger them further, not endear him to them.

It may not be important. He will love it and his Spotify status will increase, almost guaranteeing the denial of all censorship. However, this is a lesson that you cannot appease radical leftists without complete and unconditional compliance. Rogan, social media platforms and all other forms of communication are affected. They’ll always use pressure to censor you.

It’s up to these companies to reject their demands for the betterment of society, but it will take the pressure of the reasonable and fair to be more intense than the pressure of those who wish for tyrannical control of the narrative.
