Joe Rogan, the top podcaster in the country, is encouraging Americans to “vote Republican” after they were harassed over COVID-19 mandates.
Democrat-led cities and states forced many Americans to close their businesses and pushed vaccine mandates as the solution to the global pandemic.
“I hope there are lessons learned in this because this is a new thing,” Rogan said. “We had never had this before.”
Rogan’s comments came during a discussion with NFL superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers who refused to have the new vaccine drug injected into his body.

“No one who is alive today has ever experienced a true pandemic, and I’m hoping — that now that this is over — people are going to recognize that some serious errors were made and not repeat those,” Rogan continued.
Rogan said these left-wing politicians haven’t faced any consequences for their bad decisions. “Nothing,” he said, “And no accountability for these decisions that show there was no science.”
He argues that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis did a good job by using “reasonable” policies that protected the elderly. “Everyone else should be able to do whatever you want to do and protect your freedom,” Rogan added.
Critics accuse Rogan of hypocrisy because he’s encouraging Americans to “vote Republican” while, during the same episode, claiming that former Democrat President Barack Obama was the “greatest president in his lifetime.”

Over a three-hour conversation, the two jested about legacy media corporations praising vaccination as the solution to the global pandemic and politicians who broke their draconian mandates — primarily in Democrat-ran cities and states.
When Rodgers asked Rogan what he would tell the people who have lost their livelihoods due to the government forcing such mandates, Rogan said to ‘vote Republican” without skipping a beat.
Americans have already begun switching their voter registration status.
According to voter registration data analyzed by The Associated Press, more than 1 million voters across 43 states have politically shifted towards the Republican Party.
The same data showed that about 630,000 of the 1.7 million voters who changed their party affiliation registered Democrats.
The shift has likely come from the Democrat’s rhetoric and response to the pandemic and the Biden Administration’s record-high gas prices and open border crisis.
PBS reported that Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel told the Associated Press in June that American suburbs would trend red for future cycles.
“Biden and Democrats are woefully out of touch with the American people, and that’s why voters are flocking to the Republican Party in droves,” McDaniel said.
