MMA legend, and host of the Joe Rogan Experience, Joe Rogan defended free speech social network Gab on his show Monday, stating that they are “committed 100% to free speech.”
In the podcast, his guest, New York Times staff Editor Bari Weiss brought up Gab in connection to the Pittsburgh Synagogue shooter, who had an account there, saying it is a site used by the “far right.”
Rogan points out that reputation is due to the heavy restrictions from other social networks like Facebook and Twitter which makes Gab into a home for views that are frowned upon on more mainstream networks. One thing that Rogan doesn’t point out is that many of the views that Twitter and Facebook will censor are oftentimes not racist, or anti-Semitic, but instead non-politically correct opinions that have historically been accepted prior to the modern hyper-sensitive political climate of today.
The targeting of users like Laura Loomer, who is a Jewish investigative journalist, highlight that point.
Regardless of that point, Rogan makes a solid case for freedom of speech online, pointing out that “the best way to ensure that good ideas get through, is not to suppress bad ideas, but to combat them with better ideas.”

San Francisco Anti-Big Tech Free Speech Rally Attacked by ANTIFA Mob
One man was seriously injured.
Left wing thugs viciously beat at least one pro-free speech demonstrator at an impromptu rally in San Francisco’s United Nations plaza.
Conservatives had rallied in defense of free speech against the tyranny of Big Tech platforms that are quartered in the city, most notably Twitter. The demonstration occurred in response to some of the most severe censorship in American history from social media companies in recent days, hiding evidence of corruption and shady foreign business deals on the part of Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son.

Philip Anderson, the man who organized the rally, was seriously injured in the assault, which occurred when he crossed a barricade shielding patriotic demonstrators from furious leftists. He lost at least one tooth from a sucker punch.
The screaming leftists who surrounded Anderson chanted racial slurs at the Trump supporter, who is black.

A photographer with the AP described a leftist mob of “hundreds” “attacking” the free speech rally, entirely disrupting the event. Political protests are rare in San Francisco, where Silicon Valley-style neoliberal authoritarians dominate nearly every facet of everyday life.
The left doesn’t want to respect the First Amendment rights of those that oppose it. It’ll settle for nothing less than political domination, and will gladly use violence in pursuit of such ends.
The pro-free speech demonstrators don’t appear to have been deterred, and are said to have been preparing another free speech rally outside the headquarters of Twitter itself.
Upon seeing Anderson’s injuries, supporters have pitched in more than $6,000 for medical expenses needed from the cheap shot assault. Donate here.
