Podcast host Joe Rogan shared his thoughts on the upcoming midterm elections during the most recent episode of his podcast The Joe Rogan Experience; he compares the red wave to a classic horror film.
“Rogan made the remarks while speaking to comedian Bridget Phetasy about the culture of fear that exists in America where people don’t feel like they can voice their opinions without facing backlash,” The Daily Wire Reports.
“Yeah, it’s real strange,” Rogan said. “It’s real strange to just openly accept all this stuff without any pushback.”
“I think there will be pushback, though, again, I think we’re seeing it in Europe,” Phetasy said. “And they were like leaders of this kind of movement. And now it seems like they’re coming to their senses a little bit and following science. I don’t necessarily see that, although we might see it in the midterms. You know, like, again, people tend to voice their opinion on these things at the ballot when they don’t have to voice their opinion.”
“And there are a lot of people that are afraid of talking about it,” Rogan responded. “But they’re not afraid of voting about it. Because there’s a lot of people that are afraid of the reprisal. They’re afraid of getting attacked, and they’ll sit silently, when they’re amongst friends going, ‘What the f*** is going on? Like what is going on?’ And those people, that’s going to be responsible for the red wave. I think the red wave that’s coming is going to be like the elevator doors opening up in ‘The Shining.’ That’s what I think. I think people are just like, ‘What the f*** are you saying?’ They’re making Republicans.”
