Joe Rogan slammed educators pushing a “progressive ideology” in schools and said it’s not their job, mentioning things like drag queen shows for kids and sexually-charged books in some school districts.
During Spotify’s recent “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, the host spoke with guest comedian Dave Smith, and the two wondered how it was that people couldn’t agree that “sexualizing little kids” is wrong, whether it’s heterosexual or some “LGBTQ, sort of thing.”
“Children are very malleable,” Rogan explained. “They always have been. That’s how you can get children to be religious martyrs. Like how do you think they talk those kids into strapping themselves up with dynamite and walking in to some building and blowing themselves up?”
“They do it through coercion,” he added. “They teach them. They can get a person … you can get a child to ascribe to all sorts of ideologies. Hateful ideologies. Loving ideologies. We imitate our environment … But my point is for good or for bad. Even though you think you’re doing a good thing, you’re still not doing what you’re supposed to do.”
“What you’re supposed to do as an educator is teach kids,” the host continued. “Teach kids. Give them information. You’re not supposed to be grooming them towards a particular ideology or lifestyle.”
Rogan clarified that he didn’t mean “grooming in a sexual” sense. But meant educators are not supposed to be “schooling them [kids] to behave a certain way or to think a certain way … or to go against their parents beliefs … that’s not your job.”
The host then said imagine instead of teachers pushing woke lifestyles, they were talking about heterosexual sex life.
“Imagine if you had little kids in your class, 8,9,10-years old and you started talking about male and female intercourse,” the podcast host shared. “Like people would go ‘what are you doing? What are you doing?”
“But there’s books that kids can get out of the library in certain school districts that they’ve put in there that show like oral sex … like oral sex between two males,” he added. “Or a male and female …”
“If we are talking purely heterosexual relationships, we would all agree, that is absolutely not a teacher’s job to explain to a child how … what kind of sexual acts males and females like to do to each other,” Rogan continued. “What turns them on.”
His guest noted that those in the “corporate press” try to say this isn’t happening in schools, but said it’s a new world and we have sites like “Libs of TikTok” that show it does.
Rogan said drag queens “dress up in revealing outfits” and instead of drag shows for kids, “imagine again the heterosexual version.”
“Imagine a bunch of strippers in their 30s and 40s and they’re getting young girls to strip and dance for men in the audience,” the host said. “Imagine if you ever saw that … that would be a horrendous thing … like why are you taking away their innocence?”
“But if it’s a drag show and you have like a 10-year-old drag queen and he goes out there and he’s fabulous,” he added. “‘Look at him, He’s amazing.’ But you’re sexualizing this young person.”
