Joe Rogan loves it when his fans hate

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 19th 2006 2:06PM

joe roganFirst, comedian Joe Rogan of Fear Factor got into an online debate with a kid half his age, and then later smoothed things over with the kid. Now Rogan may be courting controversy again with this fifty-page thread on his messageboard. The thread wasn't started by Rogan; it was actually started by a board member who found out that another board member, whom he disliked, was part of a support group for obese people. Apparently this was the culmination of an ongoing battle of wits among the members of the board, and like most messageboards, conversation eventually devolved into personal attacks and racist insults. This kind of behavior on messageboards is hardly news, but apparently Rogan decided to toss in his support for the thread, even adding a few insults of his own. Rogan apparently loves the raw and unfiltered power of the internet, even if his participation in it might be construed by some as indirectly supporting anti-Semitic sentiments.

I started that thread , but contrary to public opinion i am not and never have been anti-semetic . I am proud to moderate on a web forum - www.rotharmy.com - dedicated to a world famous Jewish rock legend , David Lee Roth who I grately admire and is one of my own personal heroes , both in the musical sphere and as an all round entertainer , he has a career to be envious of and is an extremely intelligent and talented person , if anything I am openly 100% anti-nazi with my infamous photoshops of adolf hitler .

I abhor adolf hitler , nazism , his sick fascination with racist ideology and everything that perverted monster ever stood for , he is a stain on human history . This is just another example of poor reporting and incompetent journalism , something which i'm sure everyone is very aware of.

Joe Rogan is someone I have great respect for and is a highly intelligent man , with a brilliantly quick and imaginative mind and is an extremely talented performer. For anyone to besmirch his good name in such a fashion is in my opinion , unforgiveable.

The author of the blog should publish a full apology and retraction imo.

This is America, we are all free to like or not like and say how we feel about anyone. No one deserves special treatment or pity/sympathy over anyone else.
And we arent required to tsk tsk anyone because of their opinion because its PC to do so.

joe rogan is amazingly smart and totally kick ass (even though he may come off as a syndicated host on Fear Factor, but thats just because he's blazed most of the time)

just mention mr. hands near him, and his conversation with you will somehow end up about marriage and life on earth.
