Has anyone NOT listened to Joe Rogan, one of the most popular podcasters in the world? Nobody? You’ve all listened to Joe Rogan at some point in your life? Well, I’ll sheepishly raise my hand and admit it. I’ve never heard him. I’ve heard plenty about him, but I guess I’m just too old for this newfangled podcasting craze. Heck, I just opened my Spotify account earlier this month.
Still, there are plenty of people who are fans of the bombastic podcaster, including his newest BFF, Senator Bernie Sanders. The far-left socialist touted the words of the libertarian-leaning podcaster on Twitter.
“I think I'll probably vote for Bernie… He’s been insanely consistent his entire life. He’s basically been saying the same thing, been for the same thing his whole life. And that in and of itself is a very powerful structure to operate from.” -Joe Rogan pic.twitter.com/fuQP0KwGGI

Nobody on the left liked it. Okay, so there are technically over 110,000 people who “liked” the Tweet to go along with over 20,000 retweets, but most of the responses to the Tweet from the left have been negative. Rogan is part of the Intellectual Dark Web. He’s controversial and not afraid to discuss divisive issues. In fact, he thrives on it, so much so that many on the left have labeled him an alt-right bigot.
The responses from some on the left weren’t pretty…
Joe Rogan also had friendly interviews with Milo Yiannopolous & Jordan Peterson, yelled "you're a fucking man" on-air about a trans woman, vocally argued against allowing trans kids puberty blockers THIS YEAR, says "f*g," and believes the world is stacked against men, so. Enjoy. https://t.co/X1oFy71elf

Joe Rogan is a sexist bigot, who regularly gives a platform to the alt right to sell his anger and hate-there is no argument that justifies this as a good decision and yet again, women and minorities will pay the price for it.

Joe Rogan regularly gives a platform to hateful people like Milo Yiannopoulos, Alex Jones, James Damore and Steven Crowder. He mainstreams sexist, racist, homophobic and transphobic rhetoric + people.
His endorsement of Bernie is an embarrassment, not a point of pride. https://t.co/KTnzP6ODCa

Joe Rogen uses the word C*NT a lot – might even be his favorite word.
You trying to send women another signal about how you really feel, Bernie? https://t.co/X9tOXGM3ze

Joe Rogan is a swaggering blowhard who has built a huge fanbase being a fake counter culturalist. The reason so many alt bros love him (both left and right) is because he rails against political correctness but in reality he represents white patriarchy to the fullest. https://t.co/643h5ZnU3e

Joe Rogan says hes likely going to vote for Bernie and the left attacks him and Bernie over it
Politics flows in one direction
If Joe said he was for Trump they'd call him a Nazi
Joe says he's for Bernie and they slam Bernie
There is no right way to be "left" anymore https://t.co/J3MNav7vM5

Joe Rogan is being smeared by leftists as a right-wing white nationalist transphobe after Bernie Sanders accepted the podcast host’s endorsement.
Woke imbeciles are eating their own once again and once again it's hilarious.https://t.co/Lw8utdFxW0

Liberals: We should find ways to get socially conservative people to vote alongside us so we can win
Bernie Sanders: Hey look, I got Joe Rogan's vote, one of the most influential people in the country
Liberals: Unacceptable, he's held socially conservative views in the past.

There were conservatives who have counted Rogan as an ally before who also feel betrayed, but for the most part they’re too busy laughing at the left’s reactions to be too concerned about it. Still, we’ll include some of those reactions too for balance.
just so I'm clear, Joe Rogan says he'll probably vote for @BernieSanders because Sanders has been "insanely consistent," over the years. Yes, consistently wrong and consistently insisting people like Joe Rogan do NOT benefit from their hard work and success. Wow. #JoeRogan

Joe Rogan is smarter than this, so that’s a bummer. But it‘s also fun to see this backfire among the “Joe Rogan is a gateway to the alt right” crowd. https://t.co/VzpLoSzB4c

Yep, Bernie’s been insanely consistent. That’s for sure. I guess that makes him and his radical socialist policies really cool and anti-establishment, man. Massive, centralized government, that’s never been tried before, dude. Brilliant. https://t.co/Ee7gvPl1Rm

What a stupid comment
Just because someone has been "insanely consistent" doesn't mean that they are correct or good https://t.co/s5BWPT3emq

Another ridiculous advocate/apologist for Socialism. What will that microphone be worth, when he can't buy a loaf of bread for $100 bucks?
Also, is Joe Rogan willing to share his wealth for the communal benefit? https://t.co/KirtnxJfOl

By this time tomorrow, nobody will be talking about how outraged they are that Bernie Sanders appreciates praise from a popular podcaster with a handful of “unwoke” views. Why? Because as popular as Joe Rogan is, he’s not known for giving voting advice.
