His daughter had a friend over, and when Rogan asked the two what they were doing, they laughed and giggled, telling Rogan they were “We’re making the craziest TikTok.” Rogan said, “Like, kids are f**king addicted to TikTok. But the TikTok in America and TikTok in China for kids is very different.”

Joe Rogan Explains the Chinese and American Versions

Rogan then explained how the Chinese version of the app differs from the American version.

He said, “In China, you can’t use it after 10 pm. Kids, they’re not allowed on it after 10 pm, it shuts down. And TikTok highlights scientific achievements, athletic endeavors, all sorts of different things. But it shows like powerful accomplishment-driven activities.” This was very different from the American version of the app.

“In America, it’s like crazy gender stuff and dance moves. It’s like they’re trying to turn people into dullards. As many as they can into idiots, and they’re going to get a lot of us.” Rogan also gave his two cents on how Russia and China would get ahead of America.

According to him, Russia and China would “subvert” America by making them “idiots.” Tom Segura, who was the guest on the show, agreed with Joe Rogan’s opinion and added that their plans were clearly working. He said that most of the American people didn’t give importance to education. According to Segura, only a minority of people in the country are driven enough to get educated.
