Famous podcast host Joe Rogan along with Tesla CEO and Twitter owner Elon Musk, who both have described themselves as liberal, tore into MSNBC after the leftist news outlet claimed that health and fitness is an obsession of the “far-right.”
“Being healthy is ‘far right,’” Rogan wrote on Twitter in response to MSNBC’s new story. “Holy f*ck.”
Musk also ridiculed the writeup, commenting, “MSNBC thinks you’re a nazi if you work out lmaooo.”
MSNBC detailed how fitness training, particularly in combat sports, supposedly draws in those of the “far right.” Examples cited in the article include encouraging men to be “warriors,” in addition to embracing messages of “solidarity, heroism, and brotherhood.”
Rogan previously called out actors on the left for attempting to try fitness with being far right in recent months, saying that they are doing it because “there's a giant percentage of our population that is really lazy and fat. And if you want those people on your team, you have to say there's nothing wrong with being lazy and fat, in fact, not being lazy and fat is actually connected to misogyny, racism and fascism, and the far right.”
He added, “and then people are like, oh great, let's eat donuts and just f*cking vote blue.”
The longtime comedian and podcast host, who has described himself as “liberal,” “left,” and “almost a socialist,” has in the past lamented being labeled a “far-right influencer” by critics.
Musk, who similarly has called himself a liberal, appeared to face similar issues, as was exemplified in a meme he shared on Twitter in April of last year.
It is, of course, no secret that Rogan, a self-described left-winger, is himself a big promoter of being fit and staying healthy. This was quite clear in a past exchange he had with vaccine enthusiast Dr. Peter Hotez on The Joe Rogan Experience, who Rogan called out for unhealthy practices after he admitted to being a “junk foodaholic,” commenting, “that seems ridiculous for someone who works with health.”Hotez, who was a past guest of Rogan, infamously refused to appear on the podcast again in order to defend his views on vaccines in exchange for millions of dollars being sent to a charity of his choice, while also complaining that a harassment campaign spawned as a consequence of the challenge.
