In an episode of the Joe Rogan Experience on Monday, the show's host slammed those calling Winsome Sears, the first black woman to be elected Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, a "white supremacist."
"You can't be gay and be in ISIS, you know?" Rogan said. "That's like being a black white supremacist, but actually, that's possible now. They're saying that. Any time a black person says anything that doesn't go with the Democratic narrative. They say that person's carrying water for white supremacists."
"They're out of their f*cking mind," he said. "That lady that was the new Lieutenant Governor of Virginia that is a black woman. She's sponsored by the NRA. I don't know what all of her accolades, but she's an incredibly articulate lady, powerful woman. They're saying that her becoming the lieutenant governor is a victory for white supremacy. I read that. I read it on Twitter."
Rogan noted that the label of "white supremacy" is stamped on as many things as the Democratic Party can. He drew a parallel between comments on Sears and comments Larry Elder, who is also black, received during his gubernatorial campaign in California earlier this year.
At a rally for California Gov. Gavin Newsom in September, Cal State LA professor Melina Abdullah stated that "Larry Elder is a black face on white supremacy."
Jemele Hill, a contributing writer for The Atlantic, wrote on Twitter following Glenn Youngkin and Sears' victories in Virginia that their election was a result of "white supremacy" in the state.
"It's not the messaging, folks. This country simply loves white supremacy," Hill wrote on Twitter.
Sears blasted Hill and others for their remarks about her in an interview with Fox News, condemning their use of race "as a tool" to advance their agendas.
"I'm destroying all the narratives about race," Sears stated.
