In fact, when I told Joe early in the podcast that I didn't agree with his apparent views on vaccines against Covid, ivermectin and many things in between, part of me thought the MMA, former Taekwondo champion might hurtle himself across the table and throttle my neck.

It was like Joe and I were now in the octagon, circling one another. He stared at me intently now, eyebrows raised. I admitted that the vaccinated could still carry the virus at similar loads as the unvaccinated, but swiftly added -- before he could claim victory -- that there was more to the story.

I guess a small part of me thought I might change Joe Rogan's mind about vaccines. After this last exchange, I realized it was probably futile. His mind was made up, and there would always be plenty of misinformation out there neatly packaged to support his convictions. Truth is though, I am still glad I did it.

I countered back equally hard that the risk of myocarditis has been shown to be much higher for infected children under 16 years old compared to their uninfected peers.

Not only does it read like some fan fiction but the guy seems to think he somehow won the debate.

This is pure comedy. Meathead eviscerates your cultlike fixation, using pointed questions and basic points - UH OH I better make it sounds like I was physically intimidated!!1

The free will of your fist ends where my nose begins When I said this to Joe, the MMA fighter, he paused, sat back and listened for a while.

He was probably trying to parse the utter retardation of comparing the choice to refuse a vaccine with the act of physically punching people in the face.

If this was some personal blog, I'd just consider it the pathetic coping strategies of an intellectual, moral and physical weakling. But it being on CNN makes it a major damage control attempt. It honestly terrifies these people how many minds they may have lost through a podcast appearance like this and I bet Gupta has a lot of genuflecting to do with his woke colleagues atm.
