    This one is funny, the trumptard koolaide drinkers in the comments are raging because they thought Rogan was one of them and he betrayed them. Compare and contrast that reaction with Lallantes reaction to the fact that he talks to right wingers and you can start to see why I fucking hate the far left just as hard as I hate the far right.
    I'm not trying to be funny.

    I don't know him personally but he did pull the "if someone talks to a conservative they are nazi fascist hitlers". It's kind of a calling card.

    He's not. But he doesn't have to be a member of a group to share a view associated with the group. A nuance Isyel will struggle with.

    To be fair "Isyel struggles with" is not a very exclusive club.

    The inability to differentiate between reporting on something and being in support of something is a serious threat to what remains of our quality media.

    It shows just how authoritarian the polarized political wings have become in that they will not tolerate anyone giving "THE ENEMY" media coverage that isn't just a condemnation.

    The ugliness is across the board. We - at least until the High Court shoots the whole charade down - are in the mist of our same-sex marriage non-binding mail vote survey something something, and the hate and stupidity from the fringes is amazing in a horrific way.

    The antis are going down the "allow gays to marry and your child will be forced to change genders, people will marry animals, Xenos will have legal access to your children, etc.

    The other side has its own idiots who have been threatening the lives of priests and attacking the Wayside Chapel which is about the most leftist church/charity organization in Sydney because they wouldn't sign up to support the Yes Vote.

    The extremists are a small number on each side but boy do they poison every form of political and social discourse.

    On a different note Scientific American's September issue is called "It's Not A Women's Issue" which has a whole slew or articles on "the new science of sex and gender". Before you think "all Berkley/Evergreen BS" the bits I have read so far seem reasonable from the science POV (the social-science bits ???) and they still have Michael Shermer doing his column, ignoring all the demands that he be removed.

    Yes, he just had blm black dude few epsiodes ago.
    But was it a specific BLM person chosen because it would be easy to tear apart their talking points?
    I don't think he knows how to be a hostile interviewer.

    Edit:

    Kamau Bell's show he did where he like went to interview the KKK was really good.

    Why are people demanding the removal of Shermer?

    this is what happens when an attorney listens to normal people having a 2+ hour conversation, they pick one statement out of context and use that to build an entire argument to tear someone down

    (as normal as a millionaire fight commentator/gameshow host can be at least)
    I didnt listen to it, let alone pick an actual quote from it. I'm not interested in watching two people on the same side of a debate slap each other on the back - I was asking whether he ever has people on the other side of the debate on.

    5 seconds on his subreddit reading the comments, or 0.5 seconds on his youtube channel doing the same, proves conclusively that the bulk of his fanbase are racist shit-for-brains desperately looking for pseudo-intellectual rationalisation for their own racial and gender biases.
    There is a lot of this "rationalize evil" shit going on and I agree that Rogan has given a voice to some of those. However, you really do need to watch some and draw your own conclusions about Rogan himself and not necessarily from Reddit and YouTube comments.
    Oh I've watched 5-10, I just didnt watch the one we are specifically talking about here
    Then you'd know that he has an interview style that asks leading questions to keep his guest talking. I've listened to about 5-10 as well and it's enough to know you don't listen to his podcasts/youtube schlock unless the person he is talking to interests you. It will be two to three hours of Rogan saying "wow", "that's really interesting", "amazing" and "whoa" as well as asking a question or making a statement that keeps the person talking on track and talking. The closest thing I've seen to him sharing an actual opinion was his conversation with a flat earther that someone on FHC linked but he lacked the intelligence to actually make his points well.

    However, being a sub-par talk show host that has a lot of garbage content isn't the same thing as being a nazi racist facist trying to push the cause of the master race.
    This. I definitely dont agree with alot of what "bro rogan" says (lol @ his cure for depression: man up and get over it), in a lot of ways he is the poster child of classic toxic masculinity. That dosent mean that his podcasts are neo-Nazi propaganda or he wants to put blacks on plantations and gas muslims.

    He has had super left wing people like Abby Martin on as well as altright shitters like yiannopolis or w/e. Interesting conversations are had. Even if hes a bit dense he dosent pretend not to be.

    Anyways, I watch him for the big name guests and fight commentary. Not to find my moral compass.
    tl;dr he is a useful idiot for the far right.
