Joe Rogan further addressed the campaign to have him booted off Spotify and silenced Tuesday, labelling it a “political hit job” and stating that he doesn’t believe he should “apologize for nonsense.”

Speaking with fellow comedian and podcaster Akaash Singh about out of context edited videos of his old shows online, Rogan stated “You know, in a lot of ways, like, all this is a relief, because it’s like, just because that that video it always been out there. It’s like, this is a political hit job.”

“And so they’re taking all this stuff that I’ve ever said that’s wrong and smoosh it all together, but it’s good because it makes me address some sh*t that I really wish wasn’t out there.”

Singh chimed in, “You can apologize if you say some wild sh*t and we’ve also had some wild sh*t and you apologize and own that is wrong. Good for you.”

“You should apologize if you regret something,” Rogan responded, adding “This idea that you should never apologize, like if you regret something, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with apologizing.”

However, he added the caveat “I do think you have to be very careful to not apologize for nonsense.”

Rogan also noted that “If you stay offline it’s just real life. You just have to stay offline. You just, life goes on as normal.”

Watch:

Rogan’s comments come after President Trump said the podcaster should stop apologising.

“How many ways can you say you’re sorry? Joe,” Trump wrote in a statement, adding “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!”

In an interview with Fox News Florida governor Ron DeSantis also said Rogan should not have to apologise because the left is “out to destroy him.”

“No, he shouldn’t have apologized. I mean, you see what happens? 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.” DeSantis said, urging Rogan “do not kowtow to the mob.”

Watch:

In response to charges of racism against Rogan, conservative pundit, and former pro wrestler Tyrus delivered a powerful rant Tuesday, noting that he was at first pissed with Rogan after viewing the edited videos, but then quickly realised the entire debacle is an effort to create outrage to get Rogan silenced.

“Nobody cares what he said 12 years ago,” Tyrus roared, adding “Hell, you didn’t. Where were you then? I’ll wait for a response, but we know that will fall on deaf ears.”

“Maybe it’s time you stop using us African Americans to do your dirty work, and fight your battles,” he urged, adding “Now, I get it, you use your favorite little words to get us fired up: ‘racist, systemic, critical. And your new favorite word: misinformation. And that’ll get us fired up, we won’t even look at the facts or the whatnots, and we’ll just jump in and cancel away with you.”

Tyrus continued, “You were losing that conversation [about COVID], so you needed something else. And you went right to the good old Woke Playbook — but you went one too many times. How about this: fight Joe Rogan yourselves. Leave us out of it.”

Watch:

As we highlighted earlier this week, in general Rogan remains defiant and has embraced his role as a symbol for free expression despite the relentless series of regime attacks against him.

    F**k Apple

    Trying to kick Elon’s Twitter off the app store.

    Who made Apple the Praetorian Guards of the Internet?

    Why should they have a monopoly over permissible content when 97.5% of their donations go to Democrats?

    And who made them moral arbiters of anything given what they get up to in China?

    Apple Turned Off Protest Communication Tool Right Before Anti-Lockdown Uprising in China

    Smartphone company helps Beijing crush dissent.

    As it mulls kicking Elon Musk’s Twitter off the app store, it has now been revealed that Apple restricted the use of AirDrop in China, a move that harmed the organizational efforts of demonstrators protesting against the CCP’s lockdowns.

    Over the past week, multiple major cities across China have seen massive protests against lockdowns, with the normally compliant Chinese exploding into rage in response to their government’s ‘zero COVID’ policy.

    Much of the unrest blew up in response to an incident in Xinjiang’s capital Urumqi, where at least 10 people, some say up to 40, were killed during an apartment fire because lockdown rules stopped residents from fleeing the burning building.

    Most of the city’s residents have been prevented from leaving their homes for over 100 days as a result of the draconian rules, which are still in place nearly three years after the pandemic began.

    With Beijing now trying to contain what some are calling the most serious mass uprising since Tiananmen Square, Apple is apparently helping them to crush dissent.

    Earlier this month, Apple restricted the use of AirDrop in China, which protesters had been using to evade censorship.

    AirDrop allows local connections between devices, meaning it cannot be monitored or censored by local authorities.

    However, Apple launched an update to the app in China that restricted usage to just 10 minutes, making it harder for protesters to communicate with other activists, as well as send messages nearby bystanders and tourists.

    AirDrop was also being used by protesters in Hong Kong, who were brutally suppressed by the CCP during months of unrest in 2019.

    The smartphone company chose to roll out the new “feature” in China only right as the country experienced its biggest demonstrations in decades, which some would suggest is more than just a coincidence.

    “Apple has helped Beijing to suppress public dissent multiple times, mostly by complying with its requests to remove apps used by protestors for information and communication,” reports Reclaim the Net.

    “Apple also helps the Chinese Communist Party prevent users from remaining private by banning VPNs in the region.”

    The development coincides with Elon Musk revealing that Apple is threatening to remove Twitter from the app store entirely over its support for – God forbid – free speech.

    Elon Musk To Build “Alternative Phone” If Apple And Google Boot Twitter From App Stores

    Published

    There’s been speculation over app stores potentially de-platforming Twitter following new owner Elon Musk’s commitment to free speech. Musk unveiled a simple plan Friday night if Apple or Google decides to boot the social media platform from their stores: build a smartphone. And how hard could that be? 

    Musk responded to conservative commentator Liz Wheeler, who tweeted: “If Apple & Google boot Twitter from their app stores, @elonmusk should produce his own smartphone. Half the country would happily ditch the biased, snooping iPhone & Android. The man builds rockets to Mars, a silly little smartphone should be easy, right?” 

    “I certainly hope it does not come to that,” Musk told Wheeler, “but, yes, if there is no other choice, I will make an alternative phone.”

    Elon Musk Announces General Amnesty BUT Twitter T&C’s Say ‘Denial Of Violent Events’ Will Not Be Tolerated

    Speculation over app stores potentially targeting Twitter emerged after Apple executive Phil Schiller deactivated his Twitter account for no reason days after former President Trump’s account was restored on the platform. 

    Then in a New York Times op-ed, the former head of trust and safety at Twitter, Yoel Roth, wrote Twitter under Musk’s leadership is at risk of being removed from Apple and Google’s app stores if they fail to follow guidelines:

    “Failure to adhere to Apple’s and Google’s guidelines would be catastrophic, risking Twitter’s expulsion from their app stores and making it more difficult for billions of potential users to get Twitter’s services. This gives Apple and Google enormous power to shape the decisions Twitter makes,” Roth said.

    He explained, “as I departed the company, the calls from the app review teams had already begun.”

    How hard could it be for the world’s richest person to have a team of Tesla engineers build a smartphone? They already mount cellular-connected giant iPad-like screens in all Tesla vehicles on the dashboard of vehicles. 

    If Apple or Google don’t boot Twitter from their app stores, either way, Wheeler gave Musk an idea. How long until Musk unveils the Tesla smartphone and asks for $100 deposits?
