UFC 271 Press Conference UFC fighter Israel Adesanya on Thursday night took on a question that was not directed at him to offer a fierce defense of popular podcast host Joe Rogan, calling Rogan “one of the nicest, coolest, humble motherf***ers” in the industry.
During a pre-fight conference, a reporter started to asked UFC President Dana White about the “controversy” surrounding Rogan and controversial language the podcaster has used on his show. As White starts to walk away from the podium, Adesanya says he wants to take on the question.
“Hold up,” Adesanya said . “I’m black. I can take this one.”
“Look, there’s a lot of c***s in this game,” he told the reporter. “There are a lot of snakes in this game. I’ve been in this fight game since 2008. Joe Rogan is one of the nicest, coolest, humble motherf***ers I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Understand that.”
“F*** the noise,” Adesanya added. “You know what they’re trying to do. You can’t control the man. He’s got the biggest platform in the world right now. That’s my n**** Joe Rogan.”
Pressed about what Rogan should do to block out the “noise,” the fighter said, “Just keep doing you, Joe. Have some mushrooms. Keep doing you.”
Rogan addressed his use of the N-word in years-past “Joe Rogan Experience” episodes over the weekend in a video he posted to social media.
The host emphasized that when you look at past clips of his use of the word in context, he says he was either quoting others or speaking about the word generally, never using it in a racist fashion.Still, Rogan said in the video that he regrets using the word and hoped it would be a “learning moment” for others.“There’s been a lot of s*** from the old episodes of the podcast that I wish […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
