Joe Rogan sets sights on Trudeau for ‘demonizing’ unvaxxed Canadians ‘with no evidence’

First it was Bill Maher, and now it’s Joe Rogan — both of them lifelong liberals.

During last Thursday’s edition of his extremely popular Spotify podcast, Rogan slammed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for his demonization of the unvaxxed, particularly those who’ve joined the trucker protests.

“[T]he way Trudeau talks about people who are unvaccinated — he says that they are misogynists and racists — you’re taking people that have a perspective on a medical intervention, and you’re deciding that you’re gonna demonize them in the worst possible ways with no evidence,” he said.

His guest, comedian Dave Smith, who’s become popular for his insightful commentary, concurred.

“You’re in this demonized class all of a sudden. … And isn’t it something that so many of these people, like, say, the nurses who are unvaccinated, the truck drivers who don’t like the mandates, they were the heroes?” he noted.

The “essential workers,” as they were originally called, were indeed hailed by ruling class leftists as “heroes” during the early portion of the pandemic.

“These were the essential workers, the healthcare workers. In New York City, they were clapping at 6:00 pm every day for these workers. And those same — there’ll be nurses who worked for a year-and-a-half during the pandemic, and they didn’t wanna get the shot, and now all of a sudden, ‘You’re outta there!'” Smith added.


Rogan’s comments actually came before Maher’s comments, but word of what he’d said on his podcast didn’t really go viral til Saturday and Sunday.

On Friday’s episode of HBO’s “Real Time,” Maher compared Trudeau to Hitler over his widely panned treatment of the trucker protesters.

“He was talking about people who are not vaccinated. He said, ‘They don’t believe in science. They’re often misogynistic, often racist,'” the comedian noted, quoting from a speech the Canadian PM had delivered a couple weeks earlier.

“No, they’re not. He said, ‘But they take up space. And with that we have to make a choice in terms of a leader as a country. Do we tolerate these people?’ Tolerate these people!? Now you do sound like Hitler.”

That’s two lifelong liberals who’ve turned against the establishment left over just this particular issue alone. Non-establishment journalists like Bari Weiss have documented a stunning number of additional cases, some of them related to the protesters in Canada, and others tied to dissenting parents in the U.S.

For a recent piece for Weiss’ Substack, for instance, fellow independent journalist Suzy Weiss spoke to a number of lifelong liberal American mothers who’ve turned against the Democrat Party here in the states because of their COVID zealotry.

One Upper West Side mother, Natalya Murakhver, had this to say: “I was a very liberal Democrat. Now, my vote is up for grabs to whoever puts kids first.”

It’s like the #WalkAway movement all over again.

Part of the problem, some critics have argued, that the modern left’s entire ideology is basically based off of whatever happens on Twitter. And Twitter, wouldn’t you know it, is full to the brim with COVID zealots.

And not just COVID zealots, but also radical racial activists, trans activists, Antifa extremists, etc.

“If you’re on social media, you have this perspective of the world. And then like you if you remove yourself from that, it’s almost like you remind yourself that there’s a real world, real life,” Smith noted during Thursday’s podcast.

And in this real world, “a lot of people, I think, are really tired of the COVID regime, like they just want to go back to normal life.” Same with the endless culture battles.

“A lot of people are really tired of the culture war bullshit because so much of it is manufactured and they just want to go back to real life,” according to Smith.

But “you just don’t see this” online or in liberal spaces like, say, college campuses and night clubs in New York City.

“I’ve noticed it in in stand up comedy. Things have changed,  where like, particularly in like liberal cities, there’s certain things, [that] if you talk about, trigger audience members more,” he explained.

It’s a disconnect between the ruling class and working class — though mysteriously, this disconnect is almost perfectly mirrored in politics, with Democrats siding with the ruling class, and Republicans siding with the working class.

However, there’s a growing number of liberals like Maher, Rogan and Murakhver who’ve had enough. This doesn’t mean they’ll necessarily vote for the Republican Party. But it does strongly suggest they’ll think twice about voting for Democrats again …
