Joe Rogan is Fleeing Progressive L.A. for “Freedom” in Texas

Joe Rogan has plans to leave “overpopulated” L.A. for “buck wild” Texas. 

Rogan announced his imminent departure while interviewing Spartan Death Race CEO, Joe De Sena, on Friday. He chose Texas for its location at the center of the country, which would make travelling to both coasts much easier, but also because the state is “somewhere where you have a little bit more freedom.”

The Joe Rogan Experience host cited the Covid-19 as a prompt to make the move. He believes the pandemic has exposed that the overcrowding of L.A., which is home to a population of over four million people, is causing people to catch the virus.  

Rogan told De Sena, “When you look at the traffic, when you look at the economic despair, when you look at the homelessness problem that’s accelerated radically over the last six, seven, ten years, I think there’s too many people here.”

Frustrated by the constrictive lockdown in California, he brought up the idea of moving during a May episode of his show, expressing his dismay that standup comedy may be sidelined.  “If they really say we can’t do stand up until 2022,” he said seriously, “I might jet, I’m not kidding.”

Rogan was mum about the details of where in Texas he plans to live, but will be moving his show there and is excited about the prospect of being able perform at live comedy shows.  

“Texas is buck wild, bro. You can bring a gun.” He went on to say, “If California continues to be this restrictive, I don’t know if this is a good place to live.”

Hey Joe: If you want Buck Wild Texas, go to west Texas and set up camp there. You can’t get any more buck wild than the desert. Been there, done that, miss it, wish I could go back to Abilene. Give it a try. The BBQ is the BEST!! So are the rattlesnake hunts!!

Welcome to Texas unless you try to bring California’s far left radical political policies with you. We don’t need people coming from Calif. to Texas to just try and instigate the same stupid policies that has made California a scum bag part of the country to live in.

Joe, California does not mind if you leave as long as you leave all your money there too. If all the wealthy people leave CA how will they pay for all the freebies? There is a 1% surcharge on income over $1MM called a mental health tax surcharge, which everyone making over $1MM a year should pay for staying in CA! 13.3% of you income is taxed in CA if you hit the $1MM income mark, and the state is broke, talk about mismanagement but hey those illegal aliens are really helping CA prosper aren’t they? Try paying 0% state income tax in places like TX, FL, etc. without the crazy liberal ideas being implemented of course because those are the ideas bankrupting places like CA and NY.

That is the flippin’ problem. These liberal morons leave a state because of their policies and then want the same policies in a conservative state. Stay in California Rogain. Yes, I know it is Rogan, but he don’t impress me much.

You are going to see the biggest population shift in years in the coming months ahead. The lawlessness of the big cities and the demoRats that control them are the reason. People with families are going to move to places that are safer. There is no way in he!! that I would live in one of the cess pools that they call liberal utopias. Let them go ahead and defund their police officers. It will only speed up the decay process. If the demoRats take the presidency and the Senate, people will be fleeing the entire country.

He’ll probably land in one of the liberal hellholes here, like Houston, Dallas/Ft Worth, or Austin instead of a nicer community.

I’m surprised he even still lives in Californication. He’s a conservative guy so he probably not only wants to go to Texas where he can be free but where he doesn’t have to deal with all of the crime, homelessness and, of course, the mindless politicians that run that state (into the ground).

The problem with California is not so much that there are too many people, it’s that they mostly vote Democrat. Democrats always destroy everything.

Welcome to Texas, Joe, but leave the Leftist insanity that destroyed that beautiful state there. We love our freedoms in Texas. We live at peace in integrated neighborhoods — anyone who wants to be a Texan can be, but leave the Socialism behind. We don’t “cotton to it” here. [That is, we don’t like it.]
The last thing Texas needs is liberals from California coming here and voting for the very policies that are ruining CA, OR, WA, MN, NJ, PA, and MI.
