'That is Fascism!': Joe Rogan Slams Antifa's Ideology

5.6k views

By now, a lot of you have most likely heard about the vicious assault far-left domestic terrorist group Antifa carried out on journalist Andy Ngo in Portland, Oregon on June 29th. Ngo suffered a brain hemorrhage as a result of being pelted with both milkshakes and repeated punches to the head.

A few days after the attack, Ngo was still feeling the effects of the targeted assault on him, but he felt well enough to do multiple interviews in order to get information of how dangerous Antifa can be out there.

On Wednesday, Ngo joined stand-up comedian and UFC commentator Joe Rogan on the “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast to talk about his ordeal, who Antifa is, and where we go from here as a society.

Rogan, who admittedly is left-of-center on many issues, not only espoused how disgusting the attacks on Ngo were, but the 51-year-old podcaster felt moved enough by the Ngo situation that he basically disavowed the far-left, communist Antifa group.

“When you’re trying to enforce your own ideology on other people, and you have no tolerance for anybody with a differing opinion — particularly journalists — that is fascism,” Rogan said.

According to Merriam-Webster, fascism is defined as the following:

A political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.

Antifa regularly targets anyone that doesn’t subscribe to their particular, authoritarian way of thinking. They routinely call for violence against ideological opponents, and as evidenced by their perceived control of the city of Portland and its mayor (Ted Wheeler), they have no room for any discussion or debate on political philosophy.

"It’s so ironic to call yourself an anti-fascist when you’re literally enforcing your own particular ideology to the point of violence, and you’re wearing masks and you’re running around hitting people and pretending that you’re being inundated with Nazis and white supremacists and that this is all necessary.

It’s almost as if Antifa lives in a fantasy world. Maybe they’re “LARPing,” because Antifa sure doesn’t deal in reality.
