Bro-whisper podcaster Joe Rogan, who has openly admitted he’s a “fucking idiot,” seemed intent on proving his case to his millions of listeners this week as he grew increasingly outraged by a wild conspiracy — just only to learn, disappointingly, that it was all a tall tale.
Described by his superfans as the “Walter Cronkite of our era” and a founding member of the so-called “Intellectual Dark Web,” Rogan got conspiracy theorist Hotep Jesus to have one of his typically freewheeling and pseudo-intellectual discussions last week. At one point, Rogan claimed that Australian politicians were trying to ban people from growing their own food.
“I think it was New South Wales. Someone tried to pass a law that doesn’t allow you to grow your own food,” Rogan yelled before switching to a goofy voice to mimic the bureaucrats behind this alleged plan.
“And they said, ‘Whoa, you could grow your own food. And what else? The sickness came from your food. It infects the population – kills us. Oh we can’t have that,'” smashed the MMA comedian with his over-the-top impersonation.
Rogan went on to rail against this alleged law, saying you can justify it if you’re a real piece of shit and calling those apparently responsible for the proposal “damn creeps”. He went on to rail against Australia’s pandemic lockdowns while insisting the government is now saying they “have to stop these motherfuckers from growing their own food”.
However, Rogan’s producer Jamie Vernon eventually had to tell the longtime UFC commentator that he couldn’t — “nothing’s coming,” Vernon said.
“It has to be real,” Rogan disagreed, pulling out his phone to search himself. “It seems too good not to be!”
His producer, meanwhile, explained that the only thing that comes up when searching for an Australian law banning citizens from growing food is “a wrong thing”. On Tuesday, fact-checking website Snopes reported that a debunked conspiracy theory recently circulated on social media that made a false claim about an Australian bill.
“Yeah, I can’t find it either,” Rogan finally sighed and gave up. “Hell. It better not be fake! It could be fake.”
However, Hotep Jesus added one last bright spot to Rogan – who regularly allies with and defends Sandy Hook truther Alex Jones.
“But even if it’s a fake, right, as the fake is usually the warning,” Jesus reasoned.
