Demands by leftists to boycott Spotify have been reignited after Joe Rogan told his podcast listeners to vote Republican during his latest episode.
The statement by Rogan elicited laughter from his guest, NFL superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Occupy Democrats, however, didn’t find it as amusing and declared in a two-part tweet, “BREAKING: Influential podcaster Joe Rogan ignorantly urges Americans to ‘vote Republican” as a form of supposed payback for businesses closing down due to the pandemic — dangerous rhetoric as the GOP embraces full fascism.”
“RT TO DEMAND THAT SPOTIFY DROP JOE ROGAN!” the triggered left-wing activist Twitter account insisted.
The account then added, “If you support a boycott of Spotify until they drop Joe Rogan’s podcast after he just ignorantly urged Americans to “vote Republican” as payback for businesses closing down due to the pandemic — dangerous rhetoric as the GOP embraces full fascism — please retweet and follow us!”
Initial attempts to boycott Spotify over Rogan’s so-called COVID rhetoric have failed as he is still on the platform.
“We had never had this before. No one that was alive today had ever experienced a true pandemic and I’m hoping that now that this is over, people are going to recognize that some serious errors were made and not repeat those,” Rogan told Rodgers.
Both Rodgers and Rogan agreed that Democratic governors and state legislatures imposed mitigation measures and lockdowns that were deemed by some to be heavy-handed, such as closures of businesses, restaurants and schools.
