Stand-up comedian and UFC commentator Joe Rogan announced that his iconic podcast, which has frequently served as a platform for individuals like Elon Musk and Alex Jones to challenge the political establishment, will soon be hosted exclusively on Spotify.
“It will remain FREE, and it will be the exact same show. It’s just a licensing deal, so Spotify won’t have any creative control over the show. They want me to just continue doing it the way I’m doing it right now … I’m excited to have the support of the largest audio platform in the world and I hope you folks are there when we make the switch!” Rogan said in an Instagram post about the news.
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Rogan’s deal is worth more than $100 million, meaning that Rogan is cashing out due to his massive success:

Rogan’s fan base is worried that the news will ultimately mean that he will be more controlled and the podcast will lose the independence that has made it grow into such a powerhouse:
Joe Rogan’s show will almost certainly go downhill from here.

Despite the criticism, Rogan may be leaving YouTube because of the Draconian censorship policies on that platform. He has frequently raised the issue of digital censorship on his show and criticized the restrictive policies of the tech giants.
Big League Politics has reported on many instances of YouTube capriciously removing content considered to be wrongthink, with the latest example being the Plandemic movie about the coronavirus that has gone viral:
YouTube, the streaming video service owned by Google, is desperate to remove an explosive documentary that exposes the key players behind the medical corruption that has fueled the coronavirus pandemic.
The documentary centers around Dr. Judy Mikovits, PhD, and her work exposing corruption in the medical field. Mikovits wrote an explosive paper about the dangerous use of animal and human fetal tissues in scientific experiments that put her on the medical establishment’s hit list. Mikovits believes that the coronavirus pandemic is an example of what she was warning about decades ago.
“Plandemic” covers Mikovits’ career since she was railroaded by Big Pharma for presenting a dissident opinion regarding their fetal chop shop research. Mikovits said she was arrested, had evidence planted on her, and then was slapped with a gag order in order to prevent her truth from being heard.
“Heads of our entire HHS colluded to destroy my reputation, and the Department of Justice and FBI sat on it and kept that case under seal, which means you can’t say there’s a case or your lawyers are held in contempt of court, so you can’t get a lawyer to defend you,” Mikovits said…
The entire video can be accessed on BitChute at this link.
While many of Rogan’s fans feel this will stifle his content, this move may end up freeing him if Spotify is smart enough to realize that it is a good business decision to give popular content creators the freedom they need to produce uncensored content that their fan bases will enjoy.
University Professor Threatens to ‘Document’ Nick Sandmann’s Behavior on Campus, Calls His Beliefs ‘Atrocious and Uninformed’
Cultural marxism in action.
A university professor posted a public screed against conservative hero Nick Sandmann on Facebook before backtracking after being called out for bias.
The exchange began after a left-wing activist wished that Transylvania University, the small Kentucky college that the former Covington Catholic student is now attending, would discriminate against Sandmann because of his conservative beliefs.
“Does anyone else think it’s a bit of a stain on Transylvania University for accepting Nick Sandman? I’m sure it’s a “both sides” defense, but it’s pretty counter to their mission and another instance of there not actually being equal sides to an issue. I think TU should accept anyone willing to have an open mind and engage in debate, regardless of their views. That’s how we all learn. That’s Transy’s mission,” wrote Samuel Crankshaw of the Kentucky ACLU in a Facebook post.
“But this kid clearly is a provocateur in training with no intention of learning. He exists only to troll, intimidate and play victim. He and his attorney proudly use their national platforms to promote QAnon, which has *literally* been the direct cause of multiple instances of violence (not to mention all of the other batshit stuff). He is proudly defending Kyle Rittenhouse, who murdered two people for exercising political speech. Ironically, this silenced victim is running with Don Jr., spoke at the GOP convention, has a bill in his honor at the General Assembly, has attended private schools, has a national law firm representing him, etc. So silenced. He’s no different from the likes of Milo Yiannopoulos, but he is more dangerous,” Crankshaw continued.
“Having experienced the incredibly high standards Transy requires for admission and then holds its students to, this seems like a slap in the face. I hope some time in a real classroom changes him, but his twitter and public persona suggest otherwise,” he wrote to conclude his rant.
While it’s one thing for a left-wing activist and proud snowflake to have these viewpoints, a faculty member responded and echoed many of Crankshaw’s sentiments against Sandmann.
“While I certainly don’t support or agree with his views, and find his public behavior and rhetoric atrocious and uninformed, we can’t not admit academically qualified students due to their political and personal views,” wrote Dr. Avery Tompkins, who works as Assistant Professor and Diversity Scholar at Transylvania University.
“If he were to cause problems by being disruptive, trolling, or engaging in unethical behavior of any kind, I would immediately document it…and he would just be putting himself in a position for me to file a conduct report,” Tomkins continued.
“I’m interested in knowing why he chose Transy, whose mission is the antithesis of what he believes and promotes,” she added.
A screenshot of the entire exchange can be seen here:
Tompkins was immediately challenged by conservatives, including podcaster Rocco Lucente, for threatening to report Sandmann if he expresses his uncensored beliefs as a student.
“It’s amazing how faculty at universities now have ZERO issues with openly positing how they will discriminate against a potential future student of theirs in the event that they actually have to do their jobs and teach them,” Lucente wrote.
In Tompkins’ response to Lucente, she said that Sandmann would not be subject to scrutiny that is different than what any other conservative student receives on campus. The left-wing gestapo is not out to get Sandmann specifically, but out to crush all dissent to cultural marxism with extreme prejudice.
“I said I would welcome him into my class and would treat him the same as any student,” Tomkins explained.
Lucente is reporting Tomkins’ words to Sandmann’s attorneys, who have already secured settlements for Sandmann from other entities that defamed him. Sandmann may be able to cash out yet again due to Tomkins’ cruel sentiments.
