“Real Time” host Bill Maher predicted to podcaster Joe Rogan this week that the Democratic Party is “going to get their ass kicked” during midterm elections in November because they have all but abandoned “common sense.”

“I’m always saying to the Democrats, just don’t be the party of no common sense and you will be surprised at what amazing success you will have, as opposed to what’s going to happen, which is they’re going to get their ass kicked in November,” Maher explained during an appearance on Tuesday’s episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

The liberal talk show host has gained some notoriety among conservatives in recent years due to his penchant for calling out increasingly radical left-wing ideas. But on Tuesday, Maher asserted that he’s not the one who has changed; rather, progressive in the country are the ones who have drifted away from broadly accepted norms.

“The left has gotten goofier. So, I seem more conservative, maybe,” he argued. “But like, it’s not me who changed. I feel I’m the same guy.”

“Five years ago, we hadn’t spent $6 trillion to stay home. I mean, I understand we had to do something with the pandemic,” he continued. “Five years ago, no one was talking about abolishing the police. There was no talk about pregnant men. I mean, looting was still illegal. So, like, have I changed? No, because if someone had said 20 years ago ‘I’m not sure looting is a bad thing,’ I would’ve opposed it then. So, I haven’t changed.”

Later, when discussing why both he and Rogan have experienced a growth in their followings, Maher said, “I think it’s because we are both seen as people who are commonsensical.”

“And that is what there is a hunger for, I think, in America, more than anything, is common sense. Away from the extremes,” he added.

Elsewhere in episode, the two commentators discussed Big Tech censorship of the coronavirus lab-leak theory as an example of how everything in America has become politicized and categorized into one of two “extremes.”

“It wasn’t cool that [Twitter] didn’t allow the lab-leak theory to be talked about,” Maher said. “For months, you couldn’t even mention it. And that is certainly something that was open to question.”

“I mean, it was like, to me, the very kind of issue that if Twitter was really doing the job it should would be a healthy forum for people to go back and forth and say, ‘Well, here’s why I think COVID probably came from bats because A, B and C’ and then, ‘Well, but you know, there was this lab in Wuhan that was studying coronaviruses and somebody could have walked out with it on their shoe,'” he continued. “‘Can’t we even look into that?'”

“For Twitter to take that off, that to me was a huge red flag,” he added.

Rogan responded by saying, “It was crazy because it wasn’t resolved. It just wasn’t resolved. It wasn’t resolved amongst virologists, there was no way they could know.”

“Even the Biden administration admits that,” Maher cut in. “[Robert] Redfield, the former head of the CDC, firmly believes that it was in a lab, but again, that becomes the conservative view. For what f***ing reason, why — I can’t even follow the logic of why we pick, ‘OK, if you think it came from the wet markets, you’re a Democrat. And if you think it came out of the lab, you’re a Republican.’ It’s like what the f*** does it have to do with a Republican or Democrat?”

Joe Rogan slams daughter’s elementary school for pushing woke ‘anti-racist’ ideology onto young kids

Joe Rogan took aim at his 9-year-old daughter’s California elementary school this week, slamming the institution for pushing woke “anti-racist” ideals on young children. The massively popular podcaster claimed the school, which he doesn’t name, issued a blanket statement to parents in May 2020 after the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, telling them that their children “must be anti-racist.”

Rogan slammed the school’s email during Tuesday’s episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” arguing that the children were too young to understand the inflammatory message and charged that by telling them to be anti-racist, administrators were in essence introducing racism to them.

“When the whole George Floyd thing happened, one of the schools that my kids were going to back in California released this email, saying that it’s not enough to not be racist, you now must be anti-racist,” Rogan recalled.

“And my kid’s nine at the time,” he continued, asking, “What does that, what does that mean?”

“These kids are not even remotely racist. Like, they have all sorts of different kinds of friends,” he went on to say. “I’ve never heard them discuss it once. It’s just, ‘I like this person and she’s nice to me and we like to play together and we both like the same things.'”

“So, to tell a 9-year-old that you have to be anti-racist, well, then they go looking for racism, they’re gonna go looking to confront it,” Rogan argued.

Rogan went on to add that if schools wanted to teach kids that “racism is stupid,” then “I’m all with you.” “But if you want to tell my 9-year-old, they have to be anti-racist. What does it mean?” he said.

The podcaster, who has recently dealt with his own controversy over past racial comments, also criticized the California educators for being “naive” in the implementation of their progressive ideology.

“They weren’t that good at teaching in the first place,” he claimed. “And now here there are saying they’re going to tackle something, not just tackle something as complex as race in America, but you’re going to establish rules that you can’t just be not racist, you have to be anti-racist.”

“And you’re going to teach this to a 9-year-old?” he questioned. “So, what are you saying? Like, what exactly are you saying, what is your f*****g end goal?”

Rogan reportedly made the comments during an interview with filmmaker and director David Mamet, during which the two discussed the current state of Hollywood.

Big Tech Launches Another New Year Purge Of Political Dissidents

It was this time last year Silicon Valley rolled out a long-anticipated purge of political dissidents from the 21st-century digital public square, starting all the way at the top with President Donald Trump. In the aftermath of a two-hour riot at the Capitol, the outgoing president became the most canceled man in America. The dynamic later flipped, making him uncancellable as a consequence of social media giants’ dramatic overreach.

Within 48 hours last year, Trump was stripped from Facebook, InstagramSnapchat, and Twitter. Shopify pulled the president’s online stores from its platform and YouTube escalated its enforcement against claims of voter fraud.

Then came a crackdown on Republican supporters. TikTok blocked the hashtag “patriotparty.” Reddit banned the massive r/DonaldTrump subreddit page, and tech giants Apple, Google, and Amazon colluded to make Parler, the free speech alternative to Twitter, a relic of the past. It’s only a matter of time before they make same example out of Gettr, another social media platform gaining traction.

On Sunday, Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was permanently suspended from Twitter. Her crime? Sharing statistics from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) maintained by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). According to the New York Times, Greene published a chart from the CDC claiming the data showed “extremely high amounts of COVID vaccine deaths.”

The post earned Greene a fifth and final strike under Twitter’s policy against “misinformation,” which provokes permanent suspension. Greene was given her third strike in July when she claimed the novel Wuhan coronavirus was not dangerous for individuals under 65 and at a healthy weight. Greene’s official Twitter account remains online with nearly 400,000 followers.

Shortly after Greene was kicked from Twitter, the Georgia congresswoman was slapped with a 24-hour suspension on Facebook for a similar alleged violation of the platform’s community standards, i.e., permitted viewpoints. Greene revealed the suspension in a Telegram post Monday morning.

“A post violated our policies and we have removed it; but removing her account for this violation is beyond the scope of our policies,” a spokesperson for Meta, formerly Facebook, told the Wall Street Journal.

Greene, a sitting member of Congress, is not the only one to suffer immediate de-platforming to start off the new year. Dr. Robert Malone, a pioneer in mRNA technology, was also kicked off Twitter for unclear reasons just before his appearance on the “Joe Rogan Podcast.”

A viral clip from the podcast outlining the presence of “mass formation psychosis” gripping the western world over coronavirus hysteria then became the subject of censorship on Google-owned YouTube.

Just as last year introduced a radical escalation of censorship, this year promises to be no different. Trump was at least an outgoing elected official when he was removed from nearly all major online platforms last year, with less than 20 days left in office. Greene is only halfway through her first term with no plans to retire.

The censorship won’t stop. The ideological forces behind it have benefitted too much. It helped land their preferred presidential candidate in the White House. It kept millions of Americans trapped in their homes for months on end to record profits for big business. It’s enabled bad actors to manipulate the public discussion and brand outcasts out of those who fail to follow the predetermined narrative, to detrimental consequences.

There’s another election just 10 months away, and therefore a lot more to censor.
