anyway, the point is rogan either isn't vetting his guests (problem), or doesn't mind palling around with white supremacists (bigger problem)

you need to stop rotting your brain with shit podcasts and turn on the news occasionally

I read mostly. You should do that instead of watching the news.

Went on an evil binge this month: Mephistopheles, Gulag Archipelago, Columbine, Newtown, and Mindhunter.

You'll learn more about mass shootings reading Columbine than watching some douche bag fake argue for 30 seconds.

Brendan Schaub was my neighbor when I moved here, he just moved out and sold his house for $2.6 million. Guess Rogan pays well.

Cael none of the people I listed are obscure, they have all given interviews and had numerous write ups about them and have been in the news plenty of times. Its hilarious that you're telling me I need to study them when you havent even heard of these not obscure people.

Turn off the shit podcasts and start following the news and paying even just a little bit of attention to what's going on.

dtownammo and rwoody really bringing the thought-police ITT. its no wonder people adore condescending "progressive" pieces of shit like yall.

fast forward a couple years - "god how did we lose another election to trump? we spent all our time on the internet telling random people what to listen to on the radio and calling them dumb fuckers for not being as smart as us."

trump only loses in a landslide if these freaks disappear for awhile.

Go back to lurking, we were initially given shit for KNOWING who those people were.

And thought police? FOH. Listen to whatever the fuck you want. It's on you if you feel bad when people point out that you're listening to bad people.

Me and dtr didn't start this thread saying ROGAN IS BAD AND YOU SHOULDN'T LISTEN. someone solicited opinions, and we gave them. Of course people got bent out of shape at us, but somehow we're the thought police here?

again you demonstrate how stupid you are. i cant wait to see dtownglock's response.

did you ever stop to think that maybe now they will listen to them and be equally appalled as you? i listen to them all the time so i know whats going on in white supremacist shithead world.

the attitude demonstrated by you is obviously - "lol you dont know who they are, retards, oh no wait dont listen to them and become supporters!"

like i said - condescending fake progressive trash.

Rogan has his ups and downs for me, I've definitely caught some interesting interviews he's done.

I had to stop mainly because of YOUTUBE's algo. I watch one, ONE, off-beat Rogan interview about drugs or something and suddenly my entire home feed is "BEN SHAPIRO OWNS LIBERAL PROFESSOR" or "JORDAN PETERSON DESTROYS OLD FEMINIST" or what the ever fuck else alt-right asshats are masturbating to. Its kinda disturbing.

ups and downs arent really allowed anymore. once you speak to alt-right you are forever tainted. dtown40cal and rwoody cannot trust you to make such determinations.

you also cannot deviate from their podcast selection - although i admit im not familiar with their youtube policy.

You don't exactly need wide open eyes to see that the Alt-right tainted itself when it openly embraced racism and misogyny.

It takes a real suspension of disbelief to assume Rogan, pitching soft ball interview questions to people that a simple google search would reveal as raging racists, is just interviewing interesting people.

i think everyone here knows exactly what the alt-right is. they dont need an approved list of podcasts to see it either.

sometimes the best thing to do with a piece of shit is give them a stage. trump on twitter is a prime example... he lost a lot of those voters in the middle who wish hed just shut the fuck up.

You have a child's reading comprehension. The only person I've negatively commented on not knowing is cael bc he basically said I was dumb for knowing. Sttexan commented not knowing and my response was calm as hell.

I'd love for you to find a post where I said people aren't allowed to listen to him or whatever other bullshit.

"giving platform is smart" is some galaxy brain level shit. Over and over again when people are deplatformed their following plummets.

I don't know why I'm arguing with you anyway, 100 posts and 99% have no substance.

There's a lot to unpack here:

Are podcasts worse than Twitter, YouTube, and Fox News? Is it the incentives of YouTube and modern social media that promote the "BEN SHAPIRO OWNS LIBERAL PROFESSOR" clickbait BS that are to blame?

Is Joe Rogan specifically some how a promoter of these extremist ideologies? If he is responsible for propagating these bad ideas should you then boycott Bernie Sanders, Tulsi Gabbard, Michael Pollan, John Carmack and Jim Gaffigan? Like the breadth of these guests is so broad for that to be just laughable IMHO. My point above about tracking the guests is how can you know Michael Pollan's work on both psychedelics and the food industry and have an opinion? Can you agree with Pollan's views on the industrial food system but not psychedelics? Most people are complex with many nuanced views--some people even have abhorrent views, but totally reasonable views about other things.

Peterson, ignoring his politics, in particular has some pretty interesting views on religion. In the tradition of Carl Jung and Nietzsche he's well studied on the role of myth in psychology and how the bible stories map to certain behaviors of the human psyche. He's also got broad knowledge of authoritarian states and the role of evil and responsibility of the individual in such systems. If you're the guy manning the ovens, in all likelihood you'll just say you were doing your job, but it's your responsibility to revolt. It is that revolt that stops the progress of the world into hell. That gets lost when Vice et all post edited clickbait with crazy headlines. Can you think his ideas on authoritarianism are interesting without being labeled "alt-right" or whatever the fuck Twitter is excited about today?

Should these extremist people like McGinnis mentioned above allowed a platform or does everyone need to shun them? Do the the views of these people propagate more or less when given a platform? There are a long tradition of arguments in favor of allowing them to propagate going back to John Stuart Mill's "On Liberty".

My own views: Click bait and TV news is garbage and you're less informed following any of it--read books, study your interests deeply, and long form is better than 140 characters. Free speech is like natural selection, if you constrain it then it doesn't stamp out the deletarious mutations like Gavin McGinnis and they then become cancerous and kill the host (society).

Peterson is a bigot imo, but I wouldn't waste too much energy getting mad about him. Again Alex jones and mcginnes are the big hitters. Alex jones puts people in actual danger with the conspiracies he peddles and mcginnes is the leader of a violent white nationalist group.

Agian is haven't listened, so maybe Rogan really puts it to them and puts them in their place, but those are two people who should have as little platform as possible.

I think Rogan has good, if misguided imo, intentions, as I said, but think he should should consider never having that level of person on his show again.

From what I remember about when he had Alex Jones on he just spent 20 min half apologies it wasn't giving him a chance to peddle his trash. It looks long and I'm not going to listen to that one
