The left has been making an attempt to take down Joe Rogan for weeks now — first with the declare that he was spreading COVID misinformation, then with a mash-up video claiming that he was a racist who used had used the “n-word” in some episodes. Rogan stated the clips had been taken out of context.
As we famous earlier, Dave Portnoy went on a podcast with the MeidasTouch brothers who had been accused of being behind the Patriot Takes account that helped unfold the video towards Rogan. During the podcast, Portnoy stated he had receipts that one of many brothers himself had used the n-word in a textual content in 2014. Portnoy didn’t launch the textual content nevertheless it’s clear he’s acquired what he thinks is the smoking gun.
Portnoy had confronted them concerning the Patriot Takes account, noting the connection to the brothers, “All I knew is the Rogan propaganda videos felt similar to the videos made to attack me.” Portnoy’s level? This just isn’t an natural assault on Rogan.
Read the under thread on Rogan. All I knew is the Rogan propaganda movies felt related to the movies made to assault me. So I went again and seemed on the account that all the time resurfaced previous out of context clips of ours and checked who adopted it.

That set off one of many brothers, Brett Meiselas, who claimed they “have nothing to do with any of this” aside from being “partners” with Patriot Takes, saying “the lengths people go to defend a guy saying the N-word.”
The humorous factor about that is we now have nothing to do with any of this aside from being companions with PatriotTakes as a result of we predict they do nice work, however that doesn’t cease the conspiracy theorists from going into overdrive. The lengths folks go to defend a man saying the N phrase. https://t.co/4M0zKGKFa9

First, nobody was defending the usage of the phrase, as David Portnoy had identified each on the podcast and in his tweets. So Meiselas was misrepresenting what was being stated. Big shock.
But then Ballistic Social’s Caleb Hull nailed them with their connection to Patriot Takes.

Whoops. Sounds like they simply acquired owned proper there to me.
Meisalas responded that they’d helped Patriot Takes arrange, as a part of their “partnership.”

Oh. But yeah, nothing in any respect to do with something, proper? Just the identical UPS retailer in Macomb, MI for his or her mailing deal with of their FEC filings. Just very shut “partners.” Funny how these coincidences work. Plus, claiming one is a “partner” doesn’t precisely disassociate you from them. But the liberal scrambling is humorous to watch.
