Will Joe Rogan Have The Guts To Call Out Spotify For ‘Censorship’? – CCN.com

It looks like Joe Rogan has been censored.

Rogan, who has a history of denouncing social media censorship, as seen below, just found his most controversial episodes omitted from the Spotify platform.

After a ground-breaking $100 million deal with the streaming giant, one has to wonder if Rogan has that same energy for his new bossesor if its enough to shut him up.

In the past, Joe Rogan interviewed some people that didnt deserve to have a platform. Milo Yiannopoulos, Chris DElia, and Stefan Molyneux were just a few of the many awful people that Rogan gave a platform to while hiding behind the guise of free speech to legitimize their disgusting philosophies.

And lets not forget the time that Joey Diaz bragged about coercing female comics to have oral sex with him.

These episodes and more are missing from Spotifys library, though its unclear if its due to Joe Rogans choice, Spotifys choice, or just a technical oversight. And thus far, neither Rogan nor Spotify has commented on the matter.

But that hasnt stopped people from wrongly crying about censorship.

Its shocking how few people including Joe Rogan understand what the First Amendmentreallyentails.

Far too many people believe that the First Amendment of the United States Constitution says that people can say what they want, when they want, without fear of recourse or consequence.

But thats not true.

The First Amendment guarantees freedoms concerning religion, expression, assembly, and the right to petition. It forbids Congress from both promoting one religion over others and also restricting an individuals religious practices. It guarantees freedom of expression by prohibiting Congress from restricting the press or the rights of individuals to speak freely. It also guarantees the right of citizens to assemble peaceably and to petition their government.

The emphasis is mine, but notice the keyword in the phrase: Congress. That means thegovernmentcannot arrest you for speaking out against it, nor can thegovernmentthrow members of the press in jail for writing dissenting opinions against it (as often happens in other countries).

The First Amendment doesnotapply to private companies which means that Spotify is under no obligation to host episodes of The Joe Rogan Experience that goes against its corporate policy. And lest you think this is a political move, and Spotify is a leftist liberal company, the company has also excluded episodes of the show that featured left-leaning heroes like Tommy Chong.

This fun little webtoon about the First Amendment sums it up.

Joe Rogan isnt going to speak up against Spotifys alleged censorship of his show because evenheknows that theyre well within their rights.
