Joe Rogan is required viewing for anyone who is interested in dismantling braindead liberal arguments (see Joe Rogan Drops the Mic on ‘Cultural Appropriation’ and Video: Joe Rogan on Campus SJWs and ‘Reverse Racism’).
Here’s exhibit Q. Rogan chatted away with comedian Dave Smith, and they both took an axe to socialism, income inequality, and Bernie Sanders’ hypocrisy.
When you have a guy like Bernie Sanders who harps on and on about income inequality, I have a real issue with that because it’s one of those blanket statements that’s really good at a campaign speech. But freedom itself breeds income inequality.
Because freedom means you can do whatever you want. You can do very little, or you can work like a maniac. Here’s the game. You do something for curency, you get that currency, you use that currency to buy things or make sure you don’t have to work again. Or buy food and goods, and take trips and travel. The more you work, the more you decide you want to persue something, the more chances you have to acquire that currency if you do it correctly.
That is income inequality due to freedom.
It’s pretty simple, really. Vegging out on your couch all day, binging on Cheetos and Call of Duty? You’re probably never going to make Fortune’s “500 Most Wealthy.” If you want to make that paper, you’ve gotta get off your pajama-clad posterior and go to work.
Socialists like Bernie Sanders think money shrubs grow in rich people’s backyards, yielding $100 bills. But, ignoring people who win the lottery or get big inheritances, rich people worked to get where they are.
Instead of whining about other people’s money like Bernie does, maybe leftists should try working smarter and harder. Just saying.
