Full Disclosure I am more than just a little pissed off right now, and so, if this gets a wee raw, I apologize in advance to anyone I may inadvertently offend. But my vaunted Irish is up
This just keeps getting worse and worse. Following the revelation of a myriad of Joe Rogan podcasts showing him liberally using The N-Word, spineless Spotify CEO Daniel EK felt it necessary to finally actually say something. And what he said was basically I have no words with which to express my horror and regret for Joe Rogan’s language in his podcasts. The problem is that his utterances weren’t for the public, but for Spotify employees. And he went on to say that I don’t feel that the solution to this problem is to silence Joe Rogan. Of course he doesn’t, he’s into Rogan for $100 million!
Look, the simple fact of the matter is that Joe Rogan is a virulent racist. There is no other explanation. That phrase slips far too often, and far too comfortably from his tongue. Nigger. There, I said it. We’re all adults here. And I will not use it again, but I felt it important for context that it appear for what it is.
It turns out that there was a good reason for Ek to be panicked. In the backlash of the controversy, Spotify removed more than 130 of Rogan’s podcasts from the site, so nobody can any longer even listen to see what the context of his comments were. Which led a competing site to offer Rogan $110 million to broadcast for them, with no censorship, and they would make all of his podcasts available. talk about losing a cash cow!
All of that bullshit, monetarily incentifying black exploitation was bad enough, but then the soulless assholes at FUX News had to jump into the fray. On an episode of The Five, resident asshole Greg Gutfeld, with a certified douchebag medal to put on his lapel, just had to open his stupid fucking pie hole, African Americans don’t care about this story. It’s only the liberal left that’s driving this narrative.
Are you fucking insane?!? This is the single most hated and vilified word in the English language. This is the word that African Americans had in their ear as they were lynched, or beaten, or tortured, or sitting in jail cells for no greater crime than being black! And you honestly think that African Americans don’t care about privileged white assholes throwing around the N-Word like it was holiday candy?
Fuck You Joe Rogan! And Fuck You Greg Gutfeld! And Fuck You spotify! And Fuck You FUX News. And FUCK the other soulless platform that wants to put Joe Rogan to work glorifying white supremacy, at the expense of simple human dignity. There is a special place for all of y’all in hell, and it’s next to the noisy ice machine.
