The left really has their narratives and if anyone fails to conform they get the ax. Just look what happened to podcaster Joe Rogan. It appears Twitter suspended a user’s account for sharing a clip of Rogan nuking the liberal narrative on gun violence in America. “I wrote this thing once where I said ‘This country has a mental health problem disguised as a gun problem,’ and that’s what it is,” Rogan said.
Rogan warned further that the American government is prone to tyranny, and that surrendering the firearms that keep authoritarianism in check would make it far worse:
“I don’t think it’s wise to take the guns away from the people and leave all the power to the government. We see how they are even with an armed populace. They still have a tendency towards totalitarianism, and the more increased power and control you have over people, the easier it is for them to do what they do, and there’s a natural inclination when you are a person in power to try to hold more power and acquire more power, and it’s never–there’s never an inclination to give more power back to the people, to give more freedoms back to the people.”
Did that seem off the mark to you? Rogan was just speaking truths. There are hundreds of thousands of guns in America and they’re not out shooting people. Mental health is the biggest culprit in most murders so why is it so hard for the left to accept that it’s to blame when we’re talking about mass shootings.
Do they think that any mass murderers are sane? Of course not but talking about the truth destroys the narrative and they can’t let that happen. Especially when Democrats are ‘sooooo close’ to criminalizing lawful gun owners. Of course, they banned this video.
