I find it a little strange that Greenwald's label for Rogan's image is 'conservative'... combat sports, crude jokes, hunting, talking like a 'regular guy'...
when the obvious common denominator there is masculinity.
Gay men have it easier, in the current atmosphere, embracing their masculinity. Woke males, especially those unctuous 'male feminist allies', have been indoctrinated to view any and all traditional masculine displays or behavior as 'toxic'. Since only non-woke -- i.e., per their Manichaeism, 'conservative' -- men act masculine, masculinity is, by default, perceived as conservative per se. It is interesting that Greenwald, who sees through the woke nonsense, unconsciously reiterates that.
But I also have a gut-level concern that people I know in IRL-- who overtly treat me like they don't have a big problem with me-- have been putting on masks and throwing molotovs-- and they haven't told me to my face that I'm on their permament shitlist-- mostly for being a big hairy white-ish straight guy who laughs at offensive jokes and doesn't hate Trump blindly-enough.
My Berner friend is being mercilessly hounded, shamed, and 'cancelled' for announcing she'll either vote third party or not at all for POTUS, but under no circumstances can support Biden. And that's in solid blue Oregon, where her vote is inconsequential.
Hey, the woke left turned this into a Light vs. Dark cosmic battle. They can fuck off, and I'll gladly associate instead with anyone who's willing to tolerate political and ideological differences.
