      America, plz don't be too *domestic* like JR. It's just so much "Whao, cool visuals. So what's happening in HK?" Read a newspaper summary, ya jabroni. Joe has his moments but this clip showcases much lazy-ass ignorance.

        as a Hong Konger it's nice to see our protest has joe amazed but at the same time sad that not many people overseas actually care or understand. The Hong Kong government was trying to push a law so that they can transfer criminals to China which is dangerous because China has a broken jurisdiction system that serves only the CCP and it ignited the protest. We marched twice the first time 1 million people came out and then 2 million just a week later. keep in mind hong kong has about 7 millions of population and the government completely ignored the voices of 30% of the people. not only that the till August 10th about 500 people were arrested some for just passing by the area and the police has fired over 2000 rounds of tear gas some of them have already expired which make them extremely toxic and hundreds of rubber bullets often times aiming at protesters vital organs. even triads came out to attack citizens (they attacked everyone, not just protesters) and the police didnt arrest any of them, plenty of reports on youtube if you would simply search "7.21 Yuen Long Hong Kong"

          Living here where the protests did not only happen but continued for an extended amount of time; I'm disappointed that one of my favorite cultural figures known for being reasonable unbiased and intelligent gave little time to a serious issue affecting a multitude of people greater than the population of Denmark.

            Absolutely appalled that someone as current and informed as Joe Rogan knows nothing about the situation in Hong Kong.

            Democracy itself is under threat in Hong Kong.

            I’ve heard of American ignorance to all things beyond their borders but I think it just got slapped in the face with it.

                      so you are saying the people of HK are thugs?

                      the real thugs are the CCP and those doing the evils for Beijing.

                      and you too, which are trying to mislead the uninformed.

                              Its funny how western media continues to spin stories to suit their anti-China agenda without giving proper context to the current conditions in HK and why people are really protesting. Fact is this has little to do with the actual extradition treaty or oppressive policies of the Chinese govt and more so to do with the terrible housing crisis in HK. There has been growing resentment for years between the HK people and their frustration with their own govt for failing to make more land available for sale at cheaper prices. There is also resentment towards Chinese real estate investors who come to HK and buy up all the land making HK real estate prices the highest in the world. The people of HK are pissed that their own govt cannot provide for their basic housing needs yet Carrie Lam is more focused on signing extradition laws with China rather than working to fix their most urgent problems. This is the root cause of their anger and widespread frustration.

                                Basically China is taking Hong Kong's rights away from them. rights that they were supposed to have for decades to come before they come under total Chinese rule. 5 minutes into the video below is what you're looking for.

                                  Trying to change the way someone thinks is like trying to get Gaza and Israel on the same side. Its a lot harder than you can even imagine, and just telling someone to change the way they think is asking them so go against the habits they've instilled within themselves and had instilled by other parties. Its easier to split an atom then to change someone's habits.

                                  So Joe.... shut your stupid, podcast rambling ass up lol.

                                                    Joe, I'm disappointed with you. You should know about what going on in hongkong. You this that the us has a problem with losing civil liberties? These people are protesting to prevent the Chinese government disappearing their citizens the way they do on mainland China. Get a grip dude.

Better tell him to correct HIS thinking.

                                                                                      These people are literally fighting for their lives and freedom and you play it off as ..."wow how amazing", "they part traffic" dude , fuck you. They are fighting their big brother government from being able to extradite them at will, which essentially means they can just take anyone they want and do as they please.
                                                                                      Your platform is amazing, you have an amazing gift of reaching people, yet when it comes to serious shit, you fucking fall short and it's extremely disconcerting how you laugh it off and point out the minor things that mean nothing to the bigger picture.

                                                                                      There are so many far worthy of your popularity that could actually use this platform for something meaningful. (Joe's probable response, Go watch them bitch)

                                                                                      It's sad you simply just don't get it. Keep eating your kelp vitamins (or whatever)and cashing in while the the world is being raped for your offspring to deal with.
