Joe Rogan, host of the popular “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, warned in a recent episode that the far-left woke mob will, if left unchallenged, eventually make it so that “straight white men” are “not allowed to talk” or “go outside.”

Rogan made the remarks during a portion of an episode during which he and a guest were speaking about how difficult it would be to create a raunchy comedy movie in today’s politically correct environment.

Rogan and the guest had the following interaction:

GUEST: I was listening to a podcast the other day that I love that sorts of like a mental health podcast. And this lady was telling the host who’s like a straight white guy. He was like, I’m learning about privilege. And he was saying even my self-deprecating humor is a little bit offensive because it’s my privilege to do self-deprecating humor because as a straight white male people assume I’m joking, but other people couldn’t make such jokes because of whatever history and they were literally discussing earnestly how straight white men shouldn’t really try to be funny.

ROGAN: Was that guy a castrato?

GUEST: It felt a little castrato-y. I mean, it was just a really bizarre conversation.

ROGAN: You can never be woke enough, that’s the problem, it keeps going, it keeps going further and further and further down the line. And if you get to the point where you capitulate where you agree to all these demands, it will eventually get to straight white men are not allowed to talk. Because it’s your privilege to express yourself when other people of color have been silenced throughout history. It will be you’re not allowed to go outside because so many people were imprisoned for so many years. I mean, I’m not joking, it really will get there. It’s that crazy. You know, we just got to be nice to each other, man. And there’s a lot of people that are taking advantage of this weirdness in our culture, and then that becomes their thing. Their thing is calling people out for their privilege, calling people out for their position. You know, it’s so f***ing crazy times.

PARTIAL TRANSCRIPT [contains language]:

JOE ROGAN: We were talking today or yesterday rather with Russell Peters about when was the last time you saw a good comedy movie? And can you make a good comedy movie anymore? Or have they, have they made it so dangerous in terms of like being canceled that comedy movies are no longer something you can do?

GUEST: There’s a movie called, I think it’s called The Overnighters, I might need to double check on that, the guy, I think his name’s Adam Scott, is that a guy? A comic actor. And then, who’s the guy from Rushmore who’s great? Jason Schwartzman. It’s Jason Schwartzman and Adam Scott and I think it’s The Overnighters and it’s f***ing hilarious.

ROGAN: And how long did it come out?

GUEST: I might need a check on that too, maybe five years ago.

ROGAN: Yeah, that’s about the cut off.

GUEST: It’s a really like, low budget, all in one place movie. And it’s like hysterical I think. 

ROGAN: I would wonder like, what is the cut off in terms of like, when was the last time a really good … like, when was the last time there was like an edgy comedy?

GUEST: I was listening to a podcast the other day that I love that sorts of like a mental health podcast. And this lady was telling the host who’s like a straight white guy. He was like, I’m learning about privilege. And he was saying even my self deprecating humor is a little bit offensive because it’s my privilege to do self deprecating humor because as a straight white male people assume I’m joking, but other people couldn’t make such jokes because of whatever history and they were literally discussing earnestly how straight white men shouldn’t really try to be funny.

And if you get to the point where you capitulate where you agree to all these demands, it will eventually get to straight white men are not allowed to talk.

You know, we just got to be nice to each other man. And there’s a lot of people that are taking advantage of this weirdness in our culture, and then that becomes their thing. Their thing is calling people out for their privilege, calling people out for their position. You know, it’s so f***ing crazy times.

GUEST: Yeah, most definitely. But I do feel like there’s more, I feel like I hear more people sort of speaking out against that kind of stuff than I hear from people saying that’s a good idea. Like, I think there’s way more people that are like, what, that’s insane.

ROGAN: Well, especially in our circles.

GUEST: True. Yeah, maybe I’m in a bubble, I don’t know.

ROGAN: Yeah, I mean, we’re definitely in a comedy bubble. I mean, this is what we do, we talk s**t.

GUEST: Right.

ROGAN: You know, when you talk s**t and you see something stupid like that, like as a straight white man, I shouldn’t be self deprecating, like, b***h, what the f**k is wrong with you?

GUEST: Yeah, I mean, I’m in a lot of trouble if we can’t do that, but–

ROGAN: Yeah, we’re humans. If you’re a human being you should be able to express yourself. You shouldn’t have to take into account all the other people that are either not heard or not expressing themselves currently or not in the same, you know, whatever categories as you, like, come on, man. We can’t do that. Because that’s, what you’re doing is you’re forcing yourself to think double and triple about every single f***ing thing you say and whether or not you have the right to say it, whether or not you have the right to express yourself.

GUEST: Yeah, and then then then nobody’s having fun. That doesn’t seem like a fun way to live at all. It’s a terrible way to live.
