Joe Rogan's not worth listening to

It appears podcaster Rogan's abused his welcome among the conservative movement by attacking Israel, and obscuring much of the issues involved when it comes to the Hamas:
Addressing video footage on social media purporting to show Palestinians being killed by Israeli bombs, Joe Rogan told the millions who listen to his podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience” on Tuesday that Israel was committing genocide.

“If you can’t talk about that, if you can’t say that’s real, then you’re saying that genocide is okay as long as we’re doing it,” he said.

Then he brought the Holocaust into the discussion.

“You’re saying that from the perspective of someone who literally went through the Holocaust or your people, your tribe. You went through the Holocaust and now you’re willing to do it?” he said, apparently directing his statement at Israel.

Democratic Majority for Israel called the prominent podcaster’s statement “wholly false and dangerous.”

“Joe Rogan accuses Israel of genocide. Compares the war in Gaza to the Holocaust. He’s just plain wrong, and he really ought to have someone on his podcast who disagrees with him for some enlightening, informative conversation,” wrote Joe Walsh, a former Republican congressman from Illinois. “Instead of just tossing that ugly charge out there.”
It was bad enough when Rogan made it sound like it's bad Jews have money, or that they're swindling it all from everybody else. Now, he has to compound the damage with this obscene drivel that obscures the horrors the Hamas inflicted upon over a thousand innocent people on October 7, 2023. Many Israelis murdered and raped on that horrible day, and this is how Rogan approaches the whole subject? This is truly repulsive, and he should be ashamed of himself. Joel Pollak notes that:
Israel allows thousands of tons of food and other essential goods to enter Gaza every day, and has helped Palestinian civilians evacuate areas where there is fighting betwen Israel and the Hamas terrorist group.
And Rogan's obscured such data. Well, he's abused any and all sympathy one could've had for him after left-wing attempts to censor him. Time to turn off the radio player program if this is how he's going to behave. Rogan's regrettably the kind of creep who can't rise above anti-Israeli sentiments.
