Joe Rogan took aim at his 9-year-old daughter’s California elementary school this week, slamming the institution for pushing woke “anti-racist” ideals on young children.

The massively popular podcaster claimed the school, which he doesn’t name, issued a blanket statement to parents in May 2020 after the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, telling them that their children “must be anti-racist.”

Rogan slammed the school’s email during Tuesday’s episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” arguing that the children were too young to understand the inflammatory message and charged that by telling them to be anti-racist, administrators were in essence introducing racism to them.

“When the whole George Floyd thing happened, one of the schools that my kids were going to back in California released this email, saying that it’s not enough to not be racist, you now must be anti-racist,” Rogan recalled.

“And my kid’s nine at the time,” he continued, asking, “What does that, what does that mean?

“These kids are not even remotely racist. Like, they have all sorts of different kinds of friends,” he went on to say. “I’ve never heard them discuss it once. It’s just, ‘I like this person and she’s nice to me and we like to play together and we both like the same things.'”

“So to tell a 9-year-old that you have to be anti-racist, well, then they go looking for racism, they’re gonna go looking to confront it,” Rogan argued.

Rogan went on to add that if schools wanted to teach kids that “racism is stupid,” then “I’m all with you.”

“But if you want to tell my 9-year-old, they have to be anti-racist. What does it mean?” he said.

The podcaster, who has recently dealt with his own controversy over past racial comments, also criticized the California educators for being “naive” in the implementation of their progressive ideology.

“They weren’t that good at teaching in the first place,” he claimed. “And now here there are saying they’re going to tackle something, not just tackle something as complex as race in America, but you’re going to establish rules that you can’t just be not racist, you have to be anti-racist.”

“And you’re going to teach this to a 9-year-old?” he questioned. “So what are you saying? Like, what exactly are you saying, what is your f*****g end goal?”

Rogan reportedly made the comments during an interview with filmmaker and director David Mamet, during which the two discussed the current state of Hollywood.
