Joe Rogan accuses Israel of genocide, plays the Holocaust card

Pro-Palestinian propagandists got an added boost for their narrative when Joe Rogan accused Israel of engaging in genocide, invoking the Holocaust to shame the Jewish nation.

On the latest edition of “The Joe Rogan Experience” the host sat down with comedian Kurt Metzger for one of the extended, wide-ranging interviews that he’s known for and the topic turned to Israel’s war on the terrorists whom the podcasting king seemed to be sympathetic to.

The two were discussing an allegedly leaked video that was shared by whistleblower Edward Snowden claiming to show an Israeli drone taking out four young civilians in Gaza when Rogan dropped the “G” word to describe the conflict.

“But the whole thing is like they’re always saying they’re only targeting Hamas and everybody else is a casualty. Well, if those guys are just unarmed civilians, and they’re walking alone, that’s what they appear to be,” Rogan said.

“Dresden,” Metzger said, referring to the 1945 allied firebombing campaign of Germany’s cultural capital during the waning days of World War II, a hyperbolic statement for anyone who knows a thing about history.

“And you just blast them from the sky with robots,” Rogan said, with his guest replying, “This is the tragedy of war.”

“Yeah, this is insane,” Rogan continued. “And no one knows what to think now, because if you can’t talk about that, if you can’t say that’s real, then you’re saying that genocide is OK as long as we’re doing it. And that’s…”

“That is what we’re saying,” Metzger proclaimed.

“And if you’re saying that from the perspective of someone who literally went through the Holocaust, or your — your people, your tribe, went through the f***ing Holocaust, and now you’re willing to do it?” Rogan said.

Metzger replied, “I hope the irony is not lost on you.”

“It’s so nuts. It’s so hard to imagine that someone where — a culture — like a country was like officially founded in what ‘47?” Rogan asked, with Metzger correcting him that Israel was founded in 1948.

“‘48? OK. Officially founded. So that’s so recent. And you — and you guys are willing to do what was done to you that led you to believe that you needed to start your own country?” Rogan continued,

Suggesting that the casualties in Gaza are comparable to the horror of the Holocaust in which six million Jews were rounded up, imprisoned in death camps, and systematically slaughtered is completely ridiculous but Rogan – who often imbibes on his show – may have just been hitting the bong.

“You’re willing to do that, at least on a small scale, in Gaza? Like there’s nothing left. If you see the videos, let’s — let’s see some recent footage of Gaza, because they — have they stopped bombing? I know people are calling for a ceasefire. Well, you know — you know, what I think is going to help?” Rogan asked sarcastically. “In San Francisco, the city council all got together with masks on and they voted on a ceasefire. And then they all danced.”

Shifting to a lighter note, Rogan was referring to the celebration that broke out when San Francisco lawmakers passed their silly symbolic ceasefire resolution earlier this year.

“The ceasefire passed. The ceasefire passed, which is really important. And when it passed there were all these f***ing freaks with blue hair all dancing around with masks on,” he said. “Please show that, because it’s one of the most wonderful things on the internet. These people are swimming in a sea of human sh*t with needles flying by like logs on a raging river.”

“Everyone’s in a tent, robberies are out of control, the f***ing stores have all moved out of your town, and would you vote on? You voted on a ceasefire in Gaza,” Rogan said.
