WATCH: Joe Rogan Slammed for Defending Ilhan Omar’s Antisemitic Remarks, Saying Jews Are ‘Into Money’


CALIFORNIA (VINnews) — Popular podcaster Joe Rogan has been blasted after he said that Jewish people are “into money” on his most recent episode. He also seemed to validate Ilhan Omar’s anti-Jewish comments, saying it was not antisemitic for Omar to link Jews and money, and adding “many people have that opinion and should be represented.”

In addition, one of Rogan’s guests agreed with him and went further, saying that Omar should not have apologized.

Rogan was interviewing Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti on his Spotify show and they discussed Nancy Pelosi’s endorsement of Adam Schiff for Senate.

“It’s crazy,” said Rogan. “Did you see him sitting next to Ilhan Omar, where she’s apologizing for talking about it’s all about the Benjamins? Which is just about money. She’s talking about money. That’s not an antisemitic comment, I don’t think that is. Benjamins are money.”

He went on: “The idea that Jewish people are not into money is ridiculous. That’s like saying Italians aren’t into pizza. It’s…stupid.”

Rogan said about Omar: “Whether you agree with her or not, she has a bold opinion, and that opinion is not her own. There’s many people that have that opinion, and they should be represented.

In response, comedian David Baddiel blasted Rogan’s matter-of-fact spreading and endorsement of heinous textbook antisemitism.

Sharing a clip on Twitter, the author of Jews Don’t Count, wrote: “I actually want to stop banging the Jews Don’t Count drum at some point but hard to do when a racist myth about Jews is just…said, breezily, on one of the biggest podcasts in the world…”

He continued: “For the hard of understanding, ‘Jews are into money’ is not like ‘Italians are into pizza. Because unless my history lessons really missed something out, no-one has exterminated a large section of the entire Italian community because of their love for pepperoni.”

“This is what Joe is saying, with a big grin,” Baddiel added as he shared a cartoon trope from the antisemitic Nazi propaganda children’s book Der Giftpilz.

Baddiel continued, “Also, Joe Rogan has a 200 Million dollar deal with Spotify. And yet apparently it’s Jews who are into money.”
