We’re tracking the conservative culture clash with woke Hollywood hypocrites to keep you up to date on who’s winning and who we hate.
Here’s what happened today:
Joe Rogan spoke out against the dangers of vaccine passports in a recent podcast episode, warning that the mandates take the U.S. “one step closer” to becoming a dictatorship.
He proclaimed that the nation is “the first experiment in self-government that actually worked, and it created the greatest superpower the world has ever known,” but said ordering vaccinations is closer to being ruled by a king, than being from the land of the free.
“You’re moving one step closer to dictatorship,” Rogan argued. “That’s what the f*** is happening. That’s what’s going to happen with the vaccine passport. That’s what’s going to happen if they close borders. You can’t enter New York City unless you have your papers. You can’t go here unless you have that. You can’t get on a plane unless you do what I say.”
He also contended the government will not want to give that kind of power-up once they get it. “If they can figure out a way to force you into carrying papers, into carrying something that lets you enter businesses or lets you do this or let’s businesses open,” Rogan continued. “As soon as you give politicians power that didn’t exist previously, historically they don’t relinquish that power.”

U.S. Women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe isn’t pleased former president Donald Trump called out her team for only managing to win an Olympic bronze medal, despite being heavily favored for gold and targeted her specifically with his comments.
“Woke means you lose, everything that is woke goes bad, and our soccer team certainly has,” Trump said Thursday. “The woman with the purple hair played terribly and spends too much time thinking about Radical Left politics and not doing her job.”
Rapinoe was asked by a reporter if she had heard about his remarks a day later. “It’s a real sad dig into an old bag,” she shot back. “I’m just like, ‘You’re rooting for people to do bad?’ Yikes!”
“Break Ya Neck” Rapper Busta Rhymes gave a fiery speech about government overreach during the pandemic at a recent performance.
“This is my second show in front of human life in the last 15 f***ing months,” he said at a St. Louis, Missouri, concert. “COVID can suck a d**k, all these little weird-a** government policies and mandates suck a d**k. Stop trying to take our civil liberties away.”
He claimed mask mandates went against people’s “God-given right of freedom” to breathe freely.
“F*** your mask, some of you might feel differently, but f*** your mask,” he continued. “I can’t rhyme to you with a mask on,” he added. “We can’t eat food with a f***ing mask on. We can’t even see each other smile with a mask on.”
Rhymes said he was sorry for getting “a little political,” but wanted to be able to see the audience member’s faces. “I miss my people, we gotta talk,” he concluded. “We gotta communicate, we gotta establish new understandings. I ain’t going through that s**t again.”
Queen guitarist Brian May thinks anti-vaxxers are “fruitcakes.” In a recent interview, May discussed his “hero” Eric Claption’s recent refusal to play shows at venues that require proof of vaccination.
“I love Eric Clapton, he’s my hero, but he has very different views from me in many ways,” May said. “He’s a person who thinks it’s OK to shoot animals for fun, so we have our disagreements, but I would never stop respecting the man.”
“Anti-vax people, I’m sorry, I think they’re fruitcakes,” he continued. “There’s plenty of evidence to show that vaccination helps. On the whole, they’ve been very safe. There’s always going to be some side effect in any drug you take, but to go around saying vaccines are a plot to kill you, I’m sorry, that goes in the fruitcake jar for me.”
“Your Time Is Up”
“Charmed” actress Rose McGowan went after Times Up CEO Tina Tchen after a report claimed she helped disgraced New York Governor Andrew Cuomo deny the legitimacy of the sexual harassment allegations made against him by former staffer Lindsay Boylan.
“Remember when Hollywood actresses & paid off activists wore stupid black dresses at the Oscars? That was sponsored by Times Up who were meant to help abuse victims I told the world they are a lie 3+ years ago,” she posted on Twitter.
“I was mocked & harassed by so many who want to believe the illusion. Wake up. Hard truths are inconvenient & uncomfortable. So what, suck it up,” she went on, then specifically called out fellow “Charmed” star Alyssa Milano.
“Milano, TimesUp, fake performatives and profiteers. Alyssa’s statement at the time was gaslighting in full effect. She said of my truth-telling ‘Hurt people hurt people.’” McGowan concluded. “No, Alyssa, it’s lizard people like you, SDK Knickerbocker, Gov Cuomo, the Pres, Tina Chen who hurt people. Your time is up. Exit stage left.”
Tchen has denied helping team Cuomo during the scandal. “I have never given advice to the Governor or his team,” she posted on Twitter.
