Rogan On Upcoming Midterm ‘Red Wave’: ‘Going To Be Like The Elevator Doors Opening Up In The Shining’

Rogan On Upcoming Midterm ‘Red Wave’: ‘Going To Be Like The Elevator Doors Opening Up In The Shining’

Joe Rogan, host of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” said during a recent show that he believes that the upcoming midterm elections are going to be a bloodbath for Democrats.

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.

Rogan made the remarks after Phetasy said that she believes that a lot of people who buy into the transgender movement do so to “signal” that they’re “part of the high status in-group.”

“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.”

TRANSCRIPT:

BRIDGET PHETASY: You’ll get attacked, people are afraid to say this around their friend groups. It’s another way to kind of signal that you’re part of the high status in-group is to be like, ‘boys and girls aren’t different’.

JOE ROGAN: Yeah, it’s real strange. It’s real strange to just openly accept all this stuff without any pushback.

PHETASY: I think there will be pushback, though, again, I think we’re seeing it in Europe. 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.

ROGAN: And there are a lot of people that are afraid of talking about it. 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.

PHETASY: I don’t know how they’re doing it. I had a family member … who is a boomer and a diehard liberal. And they told me when I was home this summer that they would vote for DeSantis. And I’m like, ‘how did you lose this person?’ How did you lose this person? This is a, this is a like, go to the ballot and vote blue no matter what. And you’ve lost even the boomers.

ROGAN: You’ve lost a lot of them that aren’t talking about it. There’s a lot of them. You know, you’re seeing in New York City, Hochul, like debating that Republican candidate. That guy gained ground. Like they’re they’re worried about New York becoming Republican, which is wild.

PHETASY: I was reading last night an article about in Oregon, there is there’s an Independent woman running and then a Democrat and Republican and the Republican they think might win. Biden was in Oregon, like stumping for the Democratic candidate, because they’re so worried Oregon’s going to have a Republican governor the first time in 40 years.

ROGAN: That’s wild.

PHETASY: Oregon!

ROGAN: Well it almost happened in … New Jersey rather. New Jersey got down to the wire and New Jersey is another place that’s always been Democrat. And again, I really think that with all the polls and all that stuff, that’s indicative of like, the mindset of a lot of people that are willing to take polls.

PHETASY: Which is not that many people.

ROGAN: Not that many, but there’s a lot of people silently that are, ‘What the f**k is going on?’ And it’s not just that it’s crime. Crime is a big one. The way they’re handling crime, the way the releasing people that are committing violent crimes, and then putting them right back on the street. People are freaking the f*** out. The way that they’re handling the homeless situation. … We looked at this video the other day of in Portland, they were showing discarded needles that they’ve collected from the streets, they had f**king barrels of them, barrels and barrels of these discarded needles. It’s crazy and it’s so quick.

PHETASY: And what’s crazy too is there’s just this like fundamental disdain for the taxpaying people.
