Since you asked, and I love your work, I'll tell you.

This is a professional political attack. Three waves one right after the other is not a coincidence. Good spacing, good timing, so it's absolutely professional.

But who was it you ask?

That takes some digging but...
The video compilation of Rogan saying the n-word was dropped by @patriottakes 6 days ago. You see the video in the tweet in pic 1, and patriottakes takes credit for "republishing" the information in pic 2.

That they take credit is important and you'll see why shortly... ImageImage
As you can see in their bio, @patriottakes is partnered with @MeidasTouch.

And this is where it gets interesting.

Who is Meidastouch?

Well, they are a professional political organization. In fact, they are a Democrat "Super PAC" (more on that in a moment) run by 3 brothers Image
Ben, Brett, and Jordan Meisales.

All of them have worked in media and have expertise in understanding and manipulating Media.

The most important thing for us is that Brett was a social media manager for Ellen Degeneres, and is an expert editor. Which matter because... ImageImage
@patriottakes works with @MeidasTouch, and I'd say it's a safe bet that given their expertise in social media management that the n-word video was created by Meidastouch.


MeidasTouch is a Super PAC.

Well, what's a super PAC you ask?

A Super PAC is political advocacy group with a special twist: "super PACs may raise unlimited sums of money from corporations, unions, associations and individuals, then spend unlimited sums to overtly advocate for or against political candidates." (opensecrets.org) Image
This means that a Super PAC can take in unlimited amounts of money, and then spend however they want politically.

Meidastouch is a SuperPAC. They can take in as much cash as theg want. 4.7 million for the 2020 cycle and 1.5 Million for the 2022 cycle to be exact.

Now.... ImageImage
To recap: Meidastouch, a SuperPAC which can collect as much cash as it wants from pretty well anywhere, and is a professional strategy and media firm run by people with deep ties in entertainment, likely had a hand in the n-word video @patriottakes used to attack Joe Rogan...
So the question is....why?

Why are they doing this, and what do they have to gain?

I think a clue can be found in the letter @patriottakes wrote about all of this.

Look at that highlighted part. What does that tell you??? What does that look like to you???? Image
Patriottakes is bragging about their millions of views and how they made the video the center of the national conversation.

They are bragging about their CLOUT

Rogan is the one guy the leftists can't cancel. If a group could cancel Rogan it would be a MASSIVE show of power
Woke people and legacy media groups have been trying to cancel Rogan for ages because he steals their audience and doesn't play by their rules.

Rogan also offers his enormous platform to people like Jordan Peterson that woke progressives in media circles really don't like...
The group that takes out Rogan would gain a lot of clout and a **lot** of power.

The group that can say "we cancelled Rogan. If we can get him, we can get you too," would be able to swing a very large stick.

And that's what this is ultimately about, it's a play for power.
In short, Meidastouch is a political SuperPAC that is very likely behind the @patriottakes account. They're attempting a viral hit on Joe Rogan so they can take him out both because they don't like him and because they want monetizeable clout for having done so...
So @andrewschulz that's whose behind this.

The question is, what can we do about it?

If every person who Joe helped lut said "we are with him and we will tell our audiences to cancel spotify if they cancel Joe" this would be over in a day.

The next thing...
If everyone won't stand up, we need brave leople to lead organic pushback.

@BretWeinstein has been doing this with his "thanks Joe Rogan" hashtage

It needs to be made clear to slotify that if they cave they will pay a significant cost.

We have to make that clear.

They need to pay a cost for this.

If we can do those things I think we can protect a guy who has done so much for so many.

Just in case anyone still thinks the attack on Rogan was organic, we have pre-made scripts out there about cancelling Rogan, and they're the same word for word. That ain't organic 👇👇👇 ImageImageImageImage
Meidastouch absolutely advises and works with Patriottakes, and by their own admission meidastouch helps patriottakes with strategy, building and boosting their fundraising profile.

This is all professional, and so was the hit on Rogan. Image

Critical Theory seeks to attack ideas, concepts, people, etc by nit-picking them and "reading" them in a way which construes what they are about in the worst way possible.

The goal is to destroy the social prestige, cache, status, etc of whatever they are criticizing.
The idea is that if you criticize something relentlessly enough you can change the *meaning* of that thing and alter it's social significance.

You can take an idea, goal, aim, idea, concept, or person and "take them down a peg or two" or "knock them off their pedestal."
The goal of the criticism is entirely social: to erase the value, influence, clout, prestige, status, and social standing of anything that might bolster, maintain, empower, lift up, or reproduce any of the values, goals, philosophies, ideas or concepts that aren't woke.

When institutions employ double-standards people often say:

-What if the roles were reversed?
-It's not hypocrisy, it's hierarchy!

But It's not a double standard, or a hierarchy: it's strategy. The standard the left uses is "does doing this strategically benefit the left"
The left doe snot employ a double standard, they have one single standard of judgement which they apply to everything:

"does this thing benefit the left and help the left achieve it's social and political goals?"

That is the standard by which the left judges everything.
The standard is not about truth, right, good, beautiful, or anything else like that.

The standard the left uses is "does this give us, the left, more social and political power? Does this thing give the left more power, prestige, clout, legitimacy, influence, and so fourth?"

The leftist vision of multiculturalism has failed. The idea we can form a society where no one has to give up any value, norm, view, because it is "part of their culture" is absurd.

There has to be rules, norms, values, expectations, that apply to everyone or society fractures.
Without some common ground of values, norms, and expectations the co-operative structures that make society function no longer work.

This isn't merely a matter of "harm" or utilitarianism. It's deeper then that. It's about the fundamental ability to make society function.
The ability to co-operate requires, at the very least, the ability to have a shared goal, a shared set of values to determine how the goal ought to be pursued, and a shared language to be able to engage in such things as planning, delegating, reporting, and so fourth.

It has been *women* who have been most effective against wokeness. They are the ones winning school board elections, door knocking, sending out mailers, going through school curriculums and finding which books are going in libraries.

The momma bears are doing amazing work...
I see cheerful hopeful momma bears creating organizations like rooted wings (see @BrittRooted) @LiveAction (created by @LilaGraceRose) and @Moms4Liberty (@TinaDescovich @4TiffanyJustice) that do game changing work on the ground to get results.

So I have a few things to say
@BrittRooted @LiveAction @LilaGraceRose @Moms4Liberty @TinaDescovich @4TiffanyJustice 3/
I watch all these women fighting desperately for causes worth winning: protecting children, parents rights, pro-life activism, proper education for children, and more.

Women like @AsraNomani @ChayaRaichik10 @ChoooCole @conservmillen and a host of other keep racking up wins.

Corruption in Education🧵

-Professor who said police are "systemically racist" is fired for faking data
-The Journal "Nature" is caught publishing articles which fit narratives editors liked
-Department of Education investigates @realchrisrufo for not using "correct" pronouns

The corruption of America's education system begins in the Universities.

In the 1960's Leftist radicals got an idea from communist Antonio Gramsci which said taking over a society requires taking over the culture and establishing something Gramsci called "Cultural Hegemony"
Cultural Hegemony says that to get and keep power you must be backed up by a culture that agrees with what you're doing. You need your ideology, value system to be baked into the songs, stories, art, of your society so your views are constantly reinforced by the culture. Image

Oliver Anthony (@AintGottaDollar) reads the bible on @joerogan's Podcast, and Andrew Huberman (@hubermanlab) discusses his practice of prayer on @lexfridman's podcast

The Logos as the transcendant fixed point of reference is returning to prominece in our culture

A thread 🧵
As @jordanbpeterson explains here, the logos was the central idea around which western civilization was developedThe "LOGOS" : it is the divine thing around which the cosmos is ordered, which gives the cosmos objective meaning, and makes the cosmos intelligible.
@jordanbpeterson 3/
The issue our culture has been struggling with most is the issue of *MEANING.*

Both the sense of telos/purpose (aka the meaning of life, or why are we here?) and semantic and linguistic meaning.

The reason for this is that postmodernism ejected the logos from the culture.
