Podcaster and MMA commentator Joe Rogan revealed that he’s considering moving to Texas from California if the latter leaves its coronavirus stay-at-home restrictions in place indefinitely.
Rogan suggested that he’s tiring of the state’s seemingly endless restrictions and that the cost of living in California is becoming too expensive for him. He made the remarks on the Wednesday airing of the Joe Rogan Experience.
Watch his remarks here:
“If they really say we can’t do standup until 2022… I might jet. I’m not kidding. This is silly, I don’t need to be here.” A stand-up comedian, Rogan expressed frustration with restrictions that would prevent people from attending live comedy events for lengthy, extended periods. Rogan cited his personal friendships as the biggest draws to remaining in California, but cited the possibilities of moving to Austin or Dallas should the state restrictions prove too onerous.
Rogan went on to call his friend Bryan Caplan, who explained that Texas is preparing plans that would prospectively allow live events with a capped attendance limit of 200.
Rogan is the latest high-profile American to expressly consider the possibility of relocating from California to Texas over coronavirus restrictions. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has made it clear he’s thinking of relocating the company’s manufacturing from the state to Texas, citing the ongoing closure of the facilities in accordance with the state’s restrictions.
Texas is ramping up a state reopening plan, while maintaining measured restrictions and social distancing guidelines. Los Angeles County officials have suggested they’re willing to keep a stay-at-home order in place until July, a controversial move that would trail well behind reopening plans currently in place in other jurisdictions and could prove devastating to the local economy.
Wisconsin Police Officer’s Home Attacked, Shot at by Mob of Leftist Protestors
They shot into his house, too.
A mob of “fifty to sixty” people attacked a home belonging to a police officer in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, over the weekend, terrorizing Wauwatosa Police Department Officer Joseph Mensa, physically assaulting him, and even going so far as to fire a shotgun into the private home.
In a description of the incident, the Wauwatosa Police Department explains that the sizable mob arrived at Mensa’s home at around 8PM on Saturday. Mensa initially had a “dialogue” with the leaders of the mob, only to retreat inside when he “was ultimately physically assaulted outside of his home.”
Mensa stayed inside as the unruly and violent mob of leftist thugs attacked and vandalized the home. The report describes a single gunman as having fired a shotgun shell into Mensa’s backdoor, potentially endangering the lives of the currently suspended police officer and his girlfriend inside, in addition to children that reside inside the home.
Mensa described the incident in a Facebook post. He appears to have attracted the attention of the left-wing mob through his involvement in two police-linked shootings.
“I was unarmed and tried to defend my property and the property of my girlfriend. We were both assaulted, punched, and ultimately shot at several times,” he said. “There are children that live there any the knew that. The irony in all of this is that they chanted Black Lives Matter the entire time, but had zero regard for any of the black children that live there or me, a black man.”
Wauwatosa Police have confirmed they’re anticipating further mob action at Mensa’s home. Officer Mensa has been cleared of wrongdoing in two previous police shooting incidents by the local district attorney, and a third is currently under investigation.
