    How ironic he ends this clip saying to change how people think when it's about China. I think they would like this mind reading tool as well.

      It's hard to find good coverage of Hong Kong protests on YouTube. Probably because the hipster neoliberal tech oligarchs got their noses shoved up China's asshole and censors all the good stuff. YouTube is also full of alt-right and tankie morons which only makes it worse. Here Rogan says nothing of value as usual.

                  Yesterday. the protesters were throwing petrol bombs at middle aged dancing ladies, called "dama", because they irritate residents. Hong Kong protests are about millennials' gripes.

                        Joe needs to bring one of the lead HK activists on the show to inform the world what is happening. It's more serious than you would think over there. What I learned from the locals from over a year ago, is that the Chinese government can basically come into Hong Kong and they can arrest you for any minor or even a false crime but for example let's just say "voicing your opinion of something you don't like about the Chinese government." And basically the Chinese government can come in, kidnap you even if you are found not guilty or the claim is false, and then they can take you away to mainland Chinese prison. You basically vanish from the world without letting any HK authorities, families, or friends know what happened. So over the past few years, a few activists have been vanishing from Hong Kong. And the younger generation there are protesting to not allow this to go into full effect. They just want to live in a lifestyle where they have the freedom to speech and other human rights.

                        And now until recently, the Chinese government has hired these triad gangsters under the table to run around hong kong and beat up these young protesters with metal sticks. And they're going on trains and city streets and they're beating up innocent women, men, and children who are just trying to go home. There's even a video where some pregnant lady was walking home and these triad gangsters attacked her. Shit's messed up and that's why the protests have escalated.

                        If any HK activists on here are reading this, please correct me if I'm off with the details.
                        If anyone comments saying something that sounds angry or I'm false, than it's probably a mainland Chinese troll fighting the HK protesters so please ignore that.

                            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.

                                  Its under threat here too,look at the anti BDS legislation they are working on taking away our right to boycott.Not to mention the"patriot"act.Funny how they use names like that,when it is the most unamerican law ever,just like the "right to work"laws.More like the right of CEO's to fuck over their employees.

                                              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.
