Joe Rogan gives reason to reevaluate what we think of him

A few years ago, podcaster Rogan was unfairly targeted by Hollywood leftists. But now, he's acted as apologist for antisemitic Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, and given reason to reevaluate what we thought of him earlier:
Joe Rogan has been slammed for saying on the latest episode of his popular podcast that Jewish people are “into money,” during a discussion on the U.S. House’s move last week to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar from the Foreign Affairs Committee.

“It’s crazy,” said Rogan. “Did you see him sitting next to Ilhan Omar, where she’s apologizing for talking about ‘it’s all about the Benjamins’? Which is just about money. She’s talking about money. That’s not an antisemitic comment, I don’t think that is. Benjamins are money. The idea that Jewish people are not into money is ridiculous. That’s like saying Italians aren’t into pizza. It’s f****** stupid,” he added.

[...] “Joe Rogan is once again spewing antisemitic misinformation to his millions of followers, this time irresponsibly spreading an age-old trope about Jews and money, and then minimizing it by comparing it to Italians and pizza. Last time we checked, Italians weren’t the victims of genocide for their love of pizza,” said Liora Rez, executive director of StopAntisemitism.

Notably, Rogan’s guest, Krystal Ball, defended Omar, stating that the congresswoman should not have apologized for the Benjamins comment. Ball then implied that Israel was untouchable because of Jewish money influencing Washington, D.C.

“Joe Rogan can no longer be protected by free speech when his horrific rhetoric will ultimately lead to further violence against Jews. StopAntisemitism is calling on Joe Rogan and Krystal Ball to apologize for their remarks and for Spotify and The Joe Rogan Experience to invite guests on to have a conversation about antisemitism and how comments like his and his guests are not just controversial, but dangerous for the Jewish people,” added Raz.
Gee, and here I thought previously he was inspirational, his own apparent liberalism notwithstanding. Now, he's added himself to a whole list of double-standard idiots who've only added fuel to a fire that needn't be ignited, and caused more division than it's worth. Comparisons with pizza are monumentally stupid. If he was trying to stave off further leftists attacks on his podcasts, it's inexcusable. Time will tell if Rogan and Ball will apologize for their colossally awful defense of abominations.
