Podcast host Joe Rogan criticized “groomer” educators for their alleged attempts to “indoctrinate” their students on homosexuality during Wednesday’s episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience.”
Rogan criticized the “crazy people” wanting to teach children and those disliking the word “groomer” simply because it targets people on the left pushing lessons surrounding sexual orientation and gender identity in schools.
“There’s a lot of fucking crazy people who want to be teachers,” Rogan told guest Gad Saad. “Someone once said to me, or read this, the term ‘groomer,’ a lot of people don’t like that term online, they’re very upset. But they’re real! There are groomers. You don’t like it? Do you not like it because you don’t want children to be groomed or do you not like it because it’s a pejorative against the Left, which I think is more likely.”
Rogan then said the bigger concern should be preventing educators from “indoctrinating” kids rather than criticizing one side of the political aisle. (RELATED: Corporate Media Wonders Why Conservatives Are So Worried About ‘Groomers’)
“I saw someone as an argument, someone who I think is an intelligent person say that there should be a block against using the word ‘groomer.’ No, there should be no groomers, how about that?” Rogan continued. “And this is what they wrote, they said ‘not all teachers are groomers, but a lot of groomers are teachers. And that’s real.”
He cited instances in which teachers have been prosecuted for “exposing themselves” and allegedly masturbating in front of students, then argued many have not been caught yet. The host said people will use LGBTQ labels to “indoctrinate” kids and other groups of people.
“There’s people that are good people in all walks of life. Trans people, gay people, straight people, bisexual. There’s also pieces of shit that will use those labels in order to get closer to groups of people and indoctrinate them and indoctrinate them for their own sexual pleasure, and that’s real.”
Saad then pointed to teaching gender identity in kindergarten classrooms, which had been banned in Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill, which passed in March to prohibit classroom discussion about sexual orientation and gender identity in grades K-3. Opponents of the legislation dubbed it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, though it does indicate that educators and students are barred from using the term “gay.”
“That’s why what they were calling the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill in Florida was so infuriating,” Rogan continued. “When you’re saying that you oppose any sort of legislation that prevents people from talking about sex and gender identity and sexual orientation with people that are first grade through third grade, you oppose anything that restricts that.”
“I go ‘okay, who are you talking about?’ Because this is open ended. I had some fucking idiots for teachers when I was growing up. Can you imagine if those fucking idiots were trying to convince your child to be homosexual or that they should even be straight. Imagine if you have a gay child and you have a fucking teacher that’s trying to indoctrinate your child into the world of heterosexuality and convince your child they’re gonna burn in hell if that child is gay. Imagine how furious you would be. It works the other way, too.”
Rogan concluded there are evidently teachers who are “ideologically bound” and should not be entitled to talk to children about these issues.
