WATCH: Joe Rogan rips Don Lemon, argues telling people what they can and can’t do won’t work

During a recent segment of his podcast, Joe Rogan ripped Don Lemon of CNN over Lemon’s opinion on how to get more people to wear masks and get vaccinated.

Rogan said. “You can’t do what you want to do unless you do what I want you to do. Don Lemon was talking about that openly on CNN. ‘Don’t have a vaccine? Can’t go to the supermarket. Don’t have a vaccine can’t go to work.'”

“People are dumb. They don’t understand history,” Rogan continued “They don’t understand human beings. They don’t understand human nature. They don’t understand the history of every single country that’s ever existed other than the United States. Up until 1776, every fucking country that has ever existed was run by dictators… [America] is the first one where you had elected officials. This is the first experiment in self-government that actually worked. And it created the greatest superpower the world’s ever known.”

“It’s created the greatest cultural machine of art and creativity and innovation right fucking here,” Rogan added. . “And how did it do that? It did it through freedom. Because when you give people freedom, you let them do whatever the fuck they want to do, they find ways to succeed and grow and thrive.”

“As soon as you put the boots to them. As soon as you tell them ‘you have to do this, or you can’t do that,’ now you have a mini dictator. You have one step close to a king. You’re moving one step closer to dictatorship. That’s what the fuck is happening,” he concluded.
