LOL: Twitter Blue Checks Seethe After Joe Rogan Hosts Alex Jones on His Spotify Podcast
A host of verified Twitter accounts are fighting mad after Joe Rogan had his good friend Alex Jones on his Spotify podcast earlier this week, which was heard by millions of listeners with an open mind to the truth.
Actor Billy Eichner repeated the false debunked talking point that Alex Jones “terrorized Sandy Hook parents for years” for merely asking questions about the mass shooting.
I just cannot get over Joe Rogan getting paid god knows how much money from @Spotify so that he could give a platform to Alex Jones, who terrorized Sandy Hook parents for years. It is so disgusting.

The commercial terrorism organization, Sleeping Giants also repeated the same slur against Jones, who they helped organize a digital lynch mob against to inflict Orwellian censorship against the Infowars founder.
Congrats on paying 100 million dollars for the privilege of platforming a man who terrorized Sandy Hook parents, @Spotify.
Parents like @Nelba_MG will never forget what he did to them and you should never be able to forget having done this.
This isn’t edgy. It’s disgusting. https://t.co/myoG1h1kJZ

Nathan Bernard, a supposed “free speech activist” who uses his platform to push for more social media censorship, also whined like a baby over Jones appearing on Rogan’s podcast.
Joe Rogan hosted far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on his podcast today. They pushed anti-vaxx conspiracies and broadcasted banned Infowars videos. Rogan continuing to platform these far-right sickos is incredibly gross and dangerous. pic.twitter.com/ymNMm9GI5x

A nobody by the name of Xeni Jardin, who apparently once worked for Spotify in some capacity, complained in a tweet.

CNN hack Jon Passantino begged for the censorship of Jones because he does not support mandatory vaccinations.
Why is Joe Rogan hosting Alex Jones on his show again? This antivax misinfo is dangerous at any time, but especially so during a pandemic https://t.co/NvNtxkLLE3

Canadian sports reporter Patrick Johnston explained to Americans why free speech and an open discourse must be crippled.
Platforming Alex Jones is so dangerous. And then they’re not even getting the specifics of the story, which is important but all just par for the course. These two know what they’re doing and a big part of the nightmare we’re living in.

Another sports reporter reported by the name of Jesse Panuosco is also very angry that Jones and Rogan have much bigger platforms than he could ever achieve.
Would be cool if Joe Rogan stopped enabling dangerous, Sandy Hook-denying lunatics by giving them a platform on literally the world's most-listened-to podcast https://t.co/Dvlss5b4sd

Daily Beast beta male Max Tani apparently tried to harass Spotify into censoring the podcast but to no avail:
Weirdly Spotify didn’t respond to my question about why Alex Jones’ show is banned from the platform for “hate speech,” but it’s cool for him to appear for 3+ hours on someone else’s show on the platform. https://t.co/mn0sNgIjMA

Alleged comedian Dylan R.A. made it clear he is not a Rogan fan in making his tweet about Jones’ appearance on his podcast.
honestly joe rogan a jackass for giving alex jones a platform a week away from the election when he knows damn well how stupid and gullible at least 50% of his listeners are

Big League Politics reported on how Rogan was forced to admit – over and over – that Jones had been correct about so many different conspiracies over the years during the podcast:
Podcaster Joe Rogan spoke with Alex Jones on Tuesday, acknowledging that the so-called conspiracy theorist was the first one he could remember speaking about Jeffrey Epstein, even before the infamous and now-deceased pedophile billionaire was arrested on child prostitution charges for the first time in 2006.
Rogan and Jones were speaking about criminal proceedings against Epstein “madame” and alleged accomplice Ghislane Maxwell when Rogan pointed out that Jones was one of the first commentators to sound the alarm on Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking activities.
“Now, let me right off the bat say… You were telling me about Epstein and this island years ago. You were telling me long before anybody- I think you were even telling me about this before his first arrest!”
Jones went on to explain how he learned about supposed elite pedophile rings from Ted Gunderson, a longtime FBI agent who began correspondence with Jones on the topic in the 1990’s.
Now that the filmmaker and Infowars host has been banned from every single major social media platform, the insight that seems to have led him to to report on Epstein long before the mainstream media caught on to the pedophile’s activities is removed from the de facto digital public square.
The power of the independent media is not being slowed down by Draconian censorship, and that reality really enrages the blue check brigade.
