(Tea Party 247) – Joe Rogan, who self-describes as pretty liberal and supports gay marriage, is being blasted by the left after he said on his podcast that he would vote for Bernie Sanders. Despite the fact that Rogan is mostly libertarian and openly supports gay marriage and universal healthcare, lefties are labeling him as a nationalist transphobe and calling on Sanders to reject his endorsement.
The left has no tolerance for anyone who is not willing to give complete and entire dedication to all causes of the left, especially those concerning the LGBT agenda. Rogan has earned himself the title of transphobe after being very vocal about his opposition to trans women (biological men) being allowed to compete against actual women in sports. Despite the fact that his stance is grounded in common sense and a concern for the safety of women and the integrity of their sports, the left despises him for it.
After Sander’s campaign tweeted a clip of Rogan on his show saying he would vote for Bernie, lefties took to Twitter to express their zealous hatred of Rogan and their melodramatic tantrums could not be more entertaining.
“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

“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,” Rogan asserted.
As Paul Joseph Watson put it, “This prompted a wave of condemnation from irate ‘woke’ imbeciles with blue check marks.”
“Bernie’s campaign cutting a campaign ad with Joe Rogan f***ing sucks,” tweeted former Vox journalist Carlos Maza. “Rogan is an incredibly influential bigot and Democrats should be marginalizing him.” Such lofty claims despite the fact that there is no evidence to back up the accusation that Rogan is a “bigot.”
Bernie’s campaign cutting a campaign ad with Joe Rogan fucking sucks. Rogan is an incredibly influential bigot and Democrats should be marginalizing him.

“Is this okay with you?” asked Jodi Jacobson. “The campaign video lauding the endorsement of a man known to be a misogynist, a racist, a homophobe, a transphobe, a white nationalist? This is okay? I need to know. I am literally crushed by this.”
“Literally crushed.” How can anyone take someone like this seriously? How do these people cope when things that are truly tragic and trying happen in their lives if something like Joe Rogan endorsing Bernie Sanders is “literally” crushing?

“Joe Rogan is a transphobic bigot who shills for quackery and cuddles up to dangerous racists,” claimed Mikey Franklin. “Appearing on his show is bad but understandable. Publicizing his endorsement is indefensible.”
Shame on Sanders! Doesn’t Sanders know the only way to combat a supposed hateful bigot is to show them hate and intolerance back? Two wrongs always make a right in crazy liberal dystopia land.

“Rogan can vote for whomever he wants but I don’t think the Bernie campaign should be touting a transphobic creep who gives a platform to Nazis,” vented Eli Valley.
Seconded. Rogan can vote for whomever he wants but I don't think the Bernie campaign should be touting a transphobic creep who gives a platform to Nazis.https://t.co/JxTq9AqD8k https://t.co/lDBgWumIsa

“Imagine how you feel seeing Sanders embrace a transphobe if you’re trans,” tweeted Vox journalist Aaron Rupar. Imagine being so thin-skinned that a celebrity’s endorsement of a presidential candidate offends you.
But imagine how you feel seeing Sanders embrace a transphobe if you’re trans

Still, others were much more sensible and reasonable and took note of the fact that Joe Rogan, while possibly controversial, is still one of the most popular people in America and it’s absurd to be outraged by his endorsement.
Please get bizarrely upset and try to “cancel” Bernie for highlighting the fact that one of the most influential people in the country (Joe Rogan) supports him. It’s truly hilarious. Keep going

Democrats want to lose the election to Trump so badly they can’t even accept kind words from Joe Rogan, one of the nicest men on the planet.

The real problem the left has with Joe Rogan is he's a massively popular voice online who disagrees with them on a few things and they haven't been able to silence him yet

It is still hard to understand why Rogan is not endorsing Trump for president but that being said, it sure is amusing to watch liberals meltdown over his endorsement of Bernie Sanders.
