Podcaster Joe Rogan has fired back at Jason Aldean’s “woke” critics by highlighting the double standards of the leftist outrage over his music.
On the Wednesday edition of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” the host sat down with author Gad Saad and humiliated the critics of Aldean’s hit song, “Try That In A Small Town.”
Rogan said: “The level of outrage, now I’m not saying that that’s the greatest song in the world’s ever known, you know, but the level of outrage coming from people that are upset about that song is so strange when there are hundreds of rap songs out there that are infinitely worse and also enjoyable.”
“Misogynistic — violence. The whole thing,” Saad said.
“No complaints at all,” Rogan said.
Rogan continued: “And we’re not even talking about old stuff. There’s new stuff too.
“There’s hip hop, there’s wild rock songs.
“There’s a lot of wild shit.
“And to be focusing on that one, and it’s the racial aspect of it.
“It was crazy because, like the real ANTIFA problems that were happening during the BLM, I think it was a lot of white people doing that, right?
“Wasn’t it?” Rogan added.
“It was a lot of like, lost liberal whites who were very angry, who decided to take up this movement and smash things.
“So like, the racial aspect of it, there’s nothing racial about the lyrics.”

Rock legend Ted Nugent said:
“I know there’s a bunch of idiots out there, but you need to learn to get a kick out of the idiots.
“The idiots hate this Jason Aldean song because they hate when we push back against violence.
“They always get it 180 degrees wrong.
“This song is against violence,” Nugent noted.
“The song is about self-defense.
“The song is about protecting your loved ones in your neighborhood.
“If you find fault with a song that celebrates protecting your loved ones, your neighborhood, you might be going down to Target to the Satan display and get down on your knees.
“These are just weird people.
“We dismiss them because they’ve gotten out of hand because they’ve got no soul.
“I laugh in their face,” he declared.
“I’ve always stood up radically – really extremist – for God, family, country, Constitution, Bill of Rights, Ten Commandments, golden rule, work ethic, law and order, all that really radical stuff and that represents the heart and soul of the best, most passionate, most cocky, most fun people in the world.
“The reach of social media gets to good people all over the world, and all the good people in the world are saying what the Nugent family says: ‘Go, Jason, go… we salute you, and we stand with you,’” he said.
During his concert in Cincinnati over the weekend, Aldean responded to the leftist backlash to his song with a patriotic and defiant statement.
Aldean said: “I gotta tell you guys, it’s been a long-ass week.
“I’ve seen a lot of stuff suggesting I’m this, suggesting I’m that.
“You can think something all you want, but it doesn’t mean it’s true.
“What I am is a proud American. I love our country, I want to see it restored to what it once was before all this bulls**t”
“I love my country, I love my family, and I will do anything to protect that.
“I can tell you that.”
The crowd responded by breaking out in chants of “USA!”
Comedian Jim Breuer said:
“What baffles my mind is: You can burn the place down, you can drag innocent elderly women out of their car and beat them, you can light churches on fire, but just don’t write no songs about it.”

Whoopi Goldberg and her co-hosts on “The View” also slammed Aldean by pushing false claims about the Black Lives Matter riots and his music.
“He’s talking about people taking care of each other, and I find it so interesting that it never occurred to Jason or the writers that that’s what these folks were doing,” Goldberg said.
“[Black Lives Matter rioters] were taking care of the people in their town because they didn’t like what they saw, just like you’re talking about people taking care of each other in small towns,” she added, with a straight face.
“We do the same thing in big towns.”
