DW: ‘Give The F***ing People Their Homes Back’: Joe Rogan Unloads On Hawaii Governor Over Plans For Lahaina
…Popular podcast host Joe Rogan unloaded on Governor Josh Green (D-HI) over comments he made about future plans for the land destroyed during the recent wildfires that ravaged Maui’s west coast and devastated the historic village of Lahaina.
Rogan spoke with former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (I-HI) about the horrific damages, and said he’d been shocked to see Green suggest that the state would take over some of the burned land to create a memorial.
“A governor going on television after a massive tragedy, where you have — we don’t even know the number of people dead yet,” Rogan said. “You have this massive area that’s been burnt to the ground, and then he starts talking about taking it over for the state.”
“That’s an insane position to take, post tragedy — when people are suffering at their most, they can’t even believe it happened,” Rogan continued. “And then all of the sudden he’s saying we’re going to take it for the state and make a memorial? How about give the f***ing people their homes back?”
Rogan was responding to a news clip of Green, who told Hawaii’s KHON2 News about his plans for preserving Lahaina: “I’m already looking for ways for the state to acquire that land so we can put it into work force housing, we can put it back into families, or to make it open spaces in perpetuity as a memorial for people who were lost.”….
