Joe Rogan ruffles feathers by calling the symbol of America, a ‘f***ing soulless, evil creature’

Podcasting king Joe Rogan is no stranger to controversy, rattling cages across the ideological spectrum with his unique takes and his recent characterization of the bald eagle, a bird that has long served as the iconic symbol of the United States of America, has ruffled feathers.

On Thursday’s episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” the hugely popular Spotify podcast, the host welcomed guests Shane Gillis, Mark Normand, and Ari Shaffir for the seventh edition of the recurring Protect Our Parks series where the quartet engaged in one of the show’s trademark booze and pot fueled wide-ranging discussions when the topic of national symbols came up.

During the conversation, the dudes were talking about China when Normand, a stand-up comic said that the Asian country was leasing panda bears, animals that are its own national symbol to zoos in the U.S. to be used in exhibits.

Following some discussion of how the cuddly black and white bears represent the communist dictatorship, Rogan said “If there’s an animal that represents America, it’s funny that it’s an eagle.”

“Because eagles are — it’s kind of a f**king soulless evil creature. That likes to — eat dead fish,” the host added.

“We should’ve had a turkey,” Gillis chimed in, a reference to founding father Benjamin Franklin’s personal preference.

“Didn’t it used to be a dog?” Rogan asked of the national mascot. “I think at one point in time was the dog. It was like a pit bull.”

“Is that true? That America’s national animal was a pit bull at one point in time?” Rogan asked producer Jamie Vernon.

“It’s just the rapper,” Normand shot back in reference to the rapper Pitbull. However, before Vernon was able to look it up, Rogan changed the subject to the rap artist.

“That guy goes down some conspiracy rabbit holes over here. You ever hear Pitbull? He goes down some conspiracy rabbit holes,” Rogan said.

Twitter users reacted to Rogan’s odd characterization of the bald eagle by suggesting that it could serve as a description of him too.

Rogan has repeatedly drawn fire for his remarks but he has much more frequently rankled the thin-skinned left, especially over the COVID vaccines which led to a much-publicized spat with grizzled rocker Neil Young who threatened to pull his work from Spotify if the platform didn’t fire its star attraction. To no surprise, Rogan won and the 77-year-old “godfather of grunge” was left to lick his wounds after his ultimatum fell flat.

The podcasting extraordinaire has been a fierce critic of the “woke” left and the media liars at CNN, particularly gasbag Brian Stelter who was cut loose by the self-proclaimed “most trusted name in news” last year after new management rang down the curtain on his act.

Rogan mocked the rotund former CNN top media critic who shilled for the globalist elite, delivering a speech at the recent World Economic Forum shindig in Davos.

More recently, Rogan shredded Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg for his ridiculous remarks that there are too many white construction workers, yet another silly statement from one of the Biden regime’s prized diversity hires at a time when the derailment of a train carrying toxic chemicals poisoned an Ohio town and the federal response was practically nonexistent.
