Controversial podcaster Joe Rogan savaged liberals for calling black Republicans “white supremacists” after Winsome Sears became the first black lieutenant governor to be elected into Virginia office.
Rogan tore into critics who labeled the Marine Corps veteran’s win as a “victory for White Supremacy,” in direct contrast to Sears’ statement that her triumph crushed “all narratives about race.”
“They’re out of their f***ing mind. That lady that was the new lieutenant governor of Virginia that is a black woman. … She’s sponsored by the NRA. I don’t know what all of her accolades are, but she’s an incredibly articulate lady, powerful woman,” he detailed. “They’re saying that her becoming the lieutenant governor is a victory for white supremacy. I read that.”
He also drew a parallel between the Virginia politician and California recall gubernatorial candidate, Larry Elder, who democrats repeatedly referred to as the “Black face of White supremacy.”
“What?! What are you saying?! What the f— are you saying?!” Rogan remarked. “You can disagree with the man’s politics but that ‘White supremacy’ is like a stamp they like to put on as many things as they can.”
“You can’t be gay and be in ISIS, you know?” he said. “That’s like being a black white supremacist, but actually, that’s possible now. They’re saying that. Any time a black person says anything that doesn’t go with the Democratic Party narrative. They said that person’s carrying water for white supremacists.”

Rogan referred to a social media post by The Atlantic’s Jemele Hill, who said “It’s not the messaging, folks. This country simply loves white supremacy.”
“[The post] is because of the victory in Virginia by the Republican Party. But the f—in’ governor of Virginia was doing a s—-y job!” Rogan continued. “The people voted, they didn’t like him.”
Sears responded to Hill’s post herself, writing back, “We beg to differ,” alongside a photo of herself holding a rifle.
