All of them were in favor and were supporting Biden.
They still do.

They see nothing wrong that the Biden admin has done so far.

His 'Followers'?

It's not a freakin cult.

Ummm... don't be dumb. You know (or should know) that is simply how someone's 'listeners' are referred to.


eta: "If Joe Rogan and his followers decide to leave to another platform or make their own"

I don't think that's a viable option for Joe. They paid him a lot of money, and it would probably cost him a fortune to back out of the contract.

He only needs to wait and see if Spotify breakes the contract... which I guarantee you includes extremely specific and unbreakable clauses that a) allow Joe total freedom with regard to his guests, b) the topics he decides to discuss, and c) a guarantee that they cannot remove or otherwise censor him, in any way, shape or form.

So, the second Spotify tries to censor him, he can just take the money and go wherever he damn well pleases.

Really the same Mia Farrow that her husband Woody Allen played around with their stepdaughter? since she was probably a teen, even finding porno of the girl in Woody computer?

But he waited for her to be "off age" before marrying her.

Mia Farrow is an old hag and a bad mother.

Well I heard Mr Young sing about her .
Well, I heard ol' Neil put her down
Well, I hope Neil Young will remember
A Southern man don't need him around, anyhow

Lynyrd Skynyrd = Sweet Home Alabama .

Neil Young wasn't relative at the time he should have been .
No one listened .
No one cared .

This is his feeble way to try and capture some relevancy in life .

From an old US Hippy who remembers
A Southern man don't need him around , anyhow .

As one of Joe’s “listeners”, I hope Joe Rogen finds a way to disentangle himself with Spotify. Perhaps he can connect Trump and build a network where free speech actually exist again. I’m really tired of the propaganda coming from my government. The US government is as disingenuous as the old Soviet’s ever were.

These people are really saddening me.

I grew up in Northern California near where Neil Young lives now. I go hiking several times a year and get lunch in the redwoods next to his house. I hung out on Haight Ashbury street in SF, and went to to underground parties in San Francisco and the forests. I lived in Santa Cruz, CA later one of the last capitals of the 60's, and where people in the 60's partied.I grew up a few miles from where the Grateful Dead are from, etc. I had a old roommate in the early 2000's who played with Neil Young's Crazy Horse in the 70's. I idolized the counter culture hippy movement, and grew up in its epicenter. Granted, I never really considered Neil Young as one of the primary real voices of that movement, but he played at it back in the day.

In the 60's and 70's, the anti war movement marched alongside civil rights activists speaking out against the establishment, corruption, military industrial complex, CIA, FBI, etc, and marched at campuses FOR free speech.

Told Trump he had no permission to use his songs/music during campaigns.
But Neil Young had no such rights. Political Campaigns are free to use whichever song or music they chose.

In general that's true as long as the venue has a license to play music but the artist has a right to complain if their music is played at a political rally if they don't wish their music to be associated with a political party or person they disagree with.

Neil's rally got your panties twisted hasn't he.

You mean Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, and Foo Fighters "panties are in a twist" over people daring to exercise their free speech and criticize the corrupt establishment, clearly warped Covid narratives, and Pfizer, a known corrupt multinational corporation. The fact their panties are in a twist over this is a complete betrayal of especially the first two's hippy anti-establishment background.

Freedom of discussions is under threat as a results by those who are trying to censor Joe Rogan over his guest and according to World Health Organization Covid Misinformation.


It's capitalism in action.

Just like conservatives canceling DirectTV over OAN cancellation. That's Capitalism, folks. You use your economic power.

Compare the actions of China in respect to events like Tianamen Square (and their treatment of a lot of people and things) Our government isn't trying to silence him -- this was action by individuals and only affects one business. As I understand it, Conservative sites are happy to host him and can host him.

Businesses are NOT obligated to carry every product in the world, and you can't force them to. Spotify made a business decision. So did the protesters.

Spotify's followup actions were just... token, really.

CNN Business has an article on Spotify's response that includes some interesting points for both sides

Yup.

And I don't see why you're sad. This is an extension of what we did back then -- how artists got control of their music back. They wanted to control where and when their music was played.

Same thing here.

Government's not doing it. The artists are. It's their right, and one they fought hard for (to free their rights from corporations who didn't care what the artists thought.)

No, the counterculture back then, which I grew up around multiple generations of, in the original locations, was explicitly pro-free speech, anti censorship, anti big brother, anti major corrupt corporations, etc.

Neil Young tried to tell Spotify to remove Joe Rogan or he'd leave. He wanted to censor real debate about the Covid narratives. He's speaking apologism for power, not speaking truth to power. He tried to use his socio-economic power to suppress the rights and speech of others, in favor of corrupt multi-national corporations. These are abject violations of the original principles. A man who claimed to be aligned with those "fighting the man," has become a soldier for the man. He's also an apologist for Biden, an ancient war mongerer supreme.

No need to quote Sweet Home Alabama to me I know the song word for word , it was written in response to the song "Southern man" Neil young had written , Skynyrd were within their writes to write their response as Neil young was within his writes to do as he did.

I happen to be a fan of them both.

Of course I know that, but that doesn't mean everybody else knows it.

Nothing wrong with clarifying something just in case someone who is unaware comes along and reads it.
