Conservative Youtube rival Rumble has offered podcast king Joe Rogan a cool million bucks if he tells his current host Spotify to take a hike and to join Rumble.
The company made its offer in a tweet on Monday.
“How about you bring all your shows to Rumble, both old and new, with no censorship, for 100 million bucks over four years? This is our chance to save the world. And yes, this is totally legit,” CEO Chris Pavlovski said in a statement.

Rogen has been under attack from extreme leftists because he won’t bow to the left’s COVID hysteria. And he has the gall to think that there is such a thing as free speech in the United States.
The left has been out for Rogan’s head for years, but with this latest flap, and his foolish decision to start apologizing to them, they are closer than ever to destroying him.
But if he moves to Rumble, he won’t face any censorship.
Still, Spotify CEO Daniel Ek is not yet bowing to the leftist mob. Thus far, Ek has stood by Rogan and said he won’t boot the podcast king from the service.
“We should have clear lines around content and take action when they are crossed, but canceling voices is a slippery slope,” Ek told his employees.
Still, the writing might be on the wall for Rogan at Spotify. Despite the fact that Rogan blurted out a long list of apologies, Ek has promised to crack down on the very free speech that Rogan had previously enjoyed. He said he will institute new rules to crack down on “misinformation” about COVID — and by “misinformation,” he means anything that would go against the left-wing narrative.
You can be pretty sure that Ek is setting it up so that he can dump Rogan “for cause” later on while still pretending to stand for free speech.
