Meathead Joe Rogan leaves California for Texas

Rogan cites overcrowding, traffic, homelessness among the reasons he's moving.

If so, he has to cross Austin and Houston off the list then.

I would say Dallas too OP.

I live in Austin and there are reports that’s he’s house shopping in Austin. Austin seems to be the city of choice for West coast types that want to replicate the laid back feel. Dallas is more pretentious and Houston is just a big hick town, with cosmopolitan aspirations.

Joe Rogan is Republican, why he’d want to come to left-leaning Austin makes no sense. Austin is like a less-extreme Portland, very white and very liberal.

R19, your post doesn't make sense on any level, so I don't think you have any real authority in deciding what's stupid and what isn't.

Rogan is a meathead who is cashing in on the disaffected whitebro audience by both-sidesing them to death. Like today when he said video games were a real problem, we're supposed to forget the years and years of him praising video games as being great. He will have someone on in a week, tops, talking about how great video games are for X, Y, and Z reasons and he'll say "This is true, I definitely agree."

The reason I recently left Austin after 20 years of living there was because of the influx of Californians. The city is totally different from it was a few decades ago, and not in a good way. Too many "Always Be Hustlin'" Silicon Valley-types now.

Traffic is unreal, costs are sky high as they buy up all the available properties, and it seems to get hotter temperature-wise every year somehow. There's construction all the time too.

The housing prices in Austin are beyond ridiculous. A small, 50 year-old 1,000 sq ft, 2/1 on .25 acres with no updates routinely sell for $500k-$600k in central Austin.

Prices have soared in the last 10 years thanks in large part to people from CA. Property taxes are insane as well, and will likely go up even further post-Covid, as Texas governments look to offset fiscal deficits.

R64, I disagree that he engages with the intellectual guests. He sometimes just lets them do the talking (which is good), but more often he brings up dumb pet topics and has his assistant google and put up stupid shit. He has such a following because there are men who identify with him as a meathead who's into deep stuff, not because he has great skill or intelligence. He's The View for straight men.

I have a feeling he sees himself as a new Donald Trump in the not so distant future, someone outside the traditional political scene who might end up in the White House. He's scarily successful at the moment and possibly thinks that will be enough to become another right-wing thought leader.

It's clear he and his friend Alex Jones are following their own alt-right agenda and spreading the word. Rogan is more dangerous since he's not an unstable lunatic like Jones. He pretends to be moderate yet he was pro-Sanders when everyone knew Trump would most probably beat him easily. Now he's finally openly promoting Trump when the plan to get Sanders the nomination fell through. It's interesting to see how he'll react up until the election and then when Trump loses.

The bottom line is that Austin doesn’t like famous people living here and being famous unless it’s Matthew McConaughey, who went to UT, attends every home game, and has lived here off and on for thirty years. Further, the property tax rate is close to 3% so do the math on a multimillion dollar home. I’m in real estate and people from California and NYC are often surprised at the monthly cost. And that multimillion dollar home he wants would be in Tarrytown or Pemberton Heights, old money neighborhoods who will cringe and roll their eyes at him. I suppose he could buy in Bouldin or Travis Heights but they would dislike him even more. He could move out to Lakeway, which is more conservative, but in no way is that Austin. Between Tesla opening a factory here and this news, I despair.

by Anonymousreply 8507/27/2020

R85, Austin people really don’t like flash or fame, and I think that’s so admirable. I’ve lived here for 8 years, and pretentiousness of any kind really is looked down upon. Even the rich people are down to Earth; they may drive a Tesla or Porsche, but they’ll be wearing flip flops and a t-shirt.

I see Rogan moving out to someplace like far out Westlake, which is conservative and where lots are bigger.

Of course he's voting for Trump, you idiots. He's very clear about being a republican.

But obviously, the reasons he listed are not the real reasons he's leaving. Rogan is running out of money and can't afford the cost of living in Cali, so he's moving to Texas, which is notoriously cheap to live in. A little money goes a long way there.

by Anonymousreply 9207/27/2020

But Austin isn’t cheap at all, R92. It is by far theist expensive large city in Texas to live in, and property taxes are insane.

As the attached listings show, $800k to $1MM doesn’t get anything spectacular. In central city, it’s an older home with some updates, under 3k sq/ft. In Dallas or Houston you can get a much nicer house for this kind of money.

By the way, the reason property taxes are sky-high in Austin (and Texas in general) is because there is no state income tax. I calculated that I would have spent roughly the same in income tax if they had it, with what I paid in property tax. But I'm (upper) middle class. It's a regressive tax and rich people don't feel it like the lower classes, so it is actually cheaper for them to live in Austin than somewhere that has a more balanced state income tax.

I think Rogan has views that are all over the political spectrum. He also has guests on his show that obviously aren’t just about politics, and those are the shows that I think are the most interesting. He’ll have experts and celebs on who are not exactly in demand but nevertheless they’re entertaining or offer thoughtful contents on the show. For instance this interview with David Lee Roth who most people assume to be a dumb, past-it rock star. But from this interview and further reading up on him, he’s actually an original, quite intelligent.

Why would anyone who's not an alt-righter support Trump at this point when they've seen what he's done? Obviously these rich Hollywood types live in their own reality but knowing Rogan is apparently good friends with the super asshole Alex Jones does tell something of his own views as well. Obviously one can and even should have friends with different views but really, it's all about the Trump thing. Rogan has tried to show himself as a moderate and non-political and yet he's always working to make Trump win. People like you who see him as a great guy are more likely to see Trump in a good light when he endorses him.

R120, most guys over certain age probably remember Rogan well from News Radio where his practically only function was to be a hot himbo. That's one of the reasons he hasn't really been taken that seriously. His only claim to fame were his looks.

I agree with r121. Propaganda is at its most insidious when it surrounds itself in "normal". You entertain the majority of the time, but slip in the pushes and comments that lead people down a particular path.

It doesn't have to be as blatant as the Fox talking head daily shows like Tucker Carlson - where it's a full hour of a specific viewpoint - to be propaganda.

If Rogan is voting Trump after pushing Bernie - that says a LOT about the man and while you may be entertained by his show, you have to know you are making it easy for his viewpoint to take root in your psyche.

With his liberal guests (like in this interview with David Pakman) he likes to emphasize how 'left' he is on social and environmental issues (including being adamantly pro-choice):

[quote] including being adamantly pro-choice

This isn't necessarily about Rogan but hot guys who sleep around a lot tend to be pro-choice for purely selfish reasons.

He's a racist, homophobic douchebag who said he is voting for Trump. Hard pass.

by Anonymousreply 12507/30/2020

what has he said that's racist or homophobic?

R18 Is right. This whole thing is about money. Joe Rogan just signed $100 million deal with Spotify and his contract begins on August 1. If he moves to Texas before the end of this year he will save approximately $12 million in taxes.

R127 no one cares about his "transphobia" because everything anyone says seems to be interpreted as transphobic nowdays. It's one of those fake words that is quickly losing the impact it once had because it's been so overused.

Also "transphobic" != homophobic.

His Buddy Brian Callan has been accused of sexual assault and misconduct.

R127 Enough of the name-calling. Being concerned about the statistically unprecedented increase in young teenage girls announcing that they’re transgender, usually after spending a lot of time online and struggling with clinical depression, is not transphobia.

Transphobia doesn't necessarily mean homophobia since pro-trans issues can be homophobic themselves. Although for many 'phobes gays and trans are the same thing. Still, if the quote below is true there's no way to claim he hasn't spouted homophobia. Childhood sexual abuse causing homosexuality is an ancient tactic homophobes have used, alongside the claim that gays are pedophiles.

[bold] "Joe Rogan talking about his theory that childhood sexual abuse is what makes some people gay. Oh, and he is sharing this theory with the founder of the alt-right Proud Boys."[/bold]

But he's not just one thing. The alt-right Proud Boys are also presumably listening to him talk about how he can't understand why anyone would oppose gay marriage or think that gays are immoral.

very sad

I'm not keen on dudey bro-y types like him in American media. They think they're kind of edgy and outside the box - but they're just as much clones as all the other types of clones in America. Basically I know exactly what he thinks about everything even though I've hardly ever seen or heard his schtick - because I know his schtick.

by Anonymousreply 13708/05/2020

He's been accurately described as "alt-right adjacent" and is considered an intellectual by his audience.

by Anonymousreply 13808/05/2020

At least Rogan speaks out about the barbaric act of mutilating the penis.

by Anonymousreply 13908/05/2020

Some “intellectual”I stumbled on a clip where his main issue with Steve Mnuchin was that his wife is too hot for him. Said “the disparity in beauty is disgusting”. A very American reaction where it’s literally the only country in the world where something like that would be noticed and remarked on.
