Twitter Banned This Video Of Joe Rogan Going Off About Gun Control
Twitter censored a user for sharing the video below of podcaster Joe Rogan citing mental health as the real epidemic. Rogan defended lawful gun owner rights and laid out the truth—So what do they do? Ban the video.
“I wrote this thing once where I said ‘This country has a mental health problem disguised as a gun problem,’ and that's what it is,” Rogan said.
Rogan warned further that the American government is prone to tyranny, and that surrendering the firearms that keep authoritarianism in check would make it far worse:
"I don't think it's wise to take the guns away from the people and leave all the power to the government. We see how they are even with an armed populace. They still have a tendency towards totalitarianism, and the more increased power and control you have over people, the easier it is for them to do what they do, and there’s a natural inclination when you are a person in power to try to hold more power and acquire more power, and it's never–there's never an inclination to give more power back to the people, to give more freedoms back to the people."
Democrats threatened to do away with the filibuster, during Thursday's hearing on gun control. Jones, D-N.Y., made the comments at a House Judiciary Committee markup on a package called the "Protecting Our Kids Act." The emergency committee meeting was called by Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., in response to the mass shootings in Uvalde, Texas, and Buffalo, New York, in recent weeks.
"Enough of you telling us that school shootings are a fact of life when every other country like ours has virtually ended it. Enough of you blaming mental illness and then defunding mental health care in this country. Enough of your thoughts and prayers," Jones said during the emotional hearing.
"You will not stop us from advancing the Protecting Our Kids Act today," he added. "If the filibuster obstructs us, we will abolish it. If the Supreme Court objects, we will expand it. And we will not rest until we have taken weapons of war out of circulation and our communities each and every day."
