“I have this screenshot that someone sent me,” Rogan stated, “about the way the people on the left were talking about the Ukraine situation before the war.”
Joe Rogan noted on his podcast that the Western narrative on Ukraine has flipped 180 degrees in a few weeks from the country having a horrible corrupt government to being heroic allies against the Russian scourge.
He continued, “This is one of the things that’s so weird is that they were very disparaging of Ukraine, and they were talking about the massive corruption of Ukraine, and how horrible it was over there.”
“And now, all of a sudden, they’re looking at it like they’re heroes. The same exact people. This is what’s confusing,” the host added.
Rogan then read out points from the screenshot he referenced wherein Ukraine was labeled “the most corrupt nation in Europe” with an “increasingly corrupt and authoritarian” leader who is seeking to deepen an “alliance with the far right”.
“We’re supposed to just veer away from the narrative that was being pushed just a couple years ago,” Rogan asserted.
Rogan also went on to point out how insane it is that Facebook and other social media platforms are officially sanctioning violent rhetoric against Russians, exclaiming “What the f*ck is that? What is that?”

Joe Rogan Thinks ‘The Government Is About to Throw Our Administration Under the Bus’
Joe Rogan thinks the U.S. government may throw the Biden “administration under the bus” because of its alleged lackadaisical approach to the war in Ukraine.
On Wednesday’s episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, the host talked about having an uneasy feeling with America’s response to Ukraine. “There’s a strange sense that the government is about to throw our administration under the bus,” Rogan said. “I get this weird sense that like as more things come out and more ridiculous Kamala Harris videos where she’s saying things that make no sense and Biden, the laptop’s coming out. You almost get this weird sense where they’re trying to just recalibrate and come up with a new strategy for running things.”
Discussing President Joe Biden’s comments yesterday that chemical weapons are a real threat from Putin, Rogan said, “When he’s saying they’re about to use chemical weapons or nuclear weapons, what does that mean and what happens if that happens?”
He continued, “This is terrifying, our whole situation doesn’t have any bright paths. They’re not like, ‘This is what needs to be done. And this is how the Ukrainians can bring about peace.'”
He was joined by former Facebook product manager Antonio Garcia Martinez who had recently returned from Ukraine. He believes it’s a positive sign to see the Russian’s at the negotiating table to end the war.
Rogan concluded, “but then you’re still next door to some people who killed tens of thousands of civilians, over nothing.”
