Rogan, The Right’s Masculinity Obsession and “Muscular Christianity”

What is muscular christianity and what does it have to do with Joe Rogan? We were joined by Derek Beres & Julian Walker of the Conspirituality podcast who are working on this very issue.

Christian nationalism has always been extremely obsessed with masculinity and extremely “muscular” for over two centuries. How prevalent it is in mainstream American culture ebbs and flows as times change, but especially during periods of crises (say a pandemic) it has historically tended to reemerge as a dominant political force. A lot of folks truly want to take us back to the Dark Ages.

Joe Rogan, in all of his 5’8” glory, is apparently the archetype of the kind of figure prized by this political and cultural movement. He professes self reliance, is already extremely wealthy, juices all the supplements all wrapped up in the American flag. If Flat Tummy Tea influencers are the people who attract women to these conservative cultish ideologies, Joe Rogan and folks who model themselves after him are the male equivalent. And while he used to have more left leaning guests on, lately under Covid-19 he’s made a hard and sad right turn.

If we actually knew 100% what is happening in the world I think there’s a huge portion of us who would just go into total shock

I’ve tried talking to people about this sort of thing, and you can see how instantly they get anxious and upset… and are desperate to change the subject and just wave their hand in denial. They’re just terrified that the world is secretly run by these sort of psychopaths.

Tim Dillon is absolutely correct, they are trying to keep the story hyper focused on Ghislaine and Jeffrey and the massage table, and not on the sex trafficking and the island.

I wish everyone would DEMAND the records be unsealed and file charges on the judge for aiding in the protection of these predators.
