Joe Rogan Slaps Pete Buttigieg Down For Whining About White Construction Workers, Says Hiring Based on Diversity Leads to ‘Disasters’
Popular podcast host Joe Rogan heavily criticized Pete Buttigieg after the Transportation Secretary complained about too many white people working in the construction industry, noting hiring based on diversity can lead to “disasters.”
Buttigieg last week focused on alleged racial inequality in construction sites during an appearance at the National Association of Counties Conference.
“We have heard way too many stories from generations past of infrastructure where you got a neighborhood, often a neighborhood of color that finally sees the project come to them,” he explained.
“But everyone in the hard hats on that project looking like, you know, — doing the good paying jobs – don’t look like they came from anywhere near the neighborhood,” Buttigieg asserted.

Joe Rogan Blasts Buttigieg For Racially Charged Comments
Joe Rogan responded to Buttigieg’s comments and focused on this month’s train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, an environmental disaster that released toxic chemicals into the air, onto the ground, and into the water of that community.
“Do you know that he [Buttigieg] gave a speech the other day about how there’s too many White people working in construction sites?” Rogan asked guest Bridget Phetasy.
“Where these construction sites are set up in these communities, where the people in the community can benefit from it.”
Rogan said that Buttigeg’s comment “shows a profound lack of understanding of skilled labor.”
“Like, you have to hire people that are really good at that, and if they don’t exist in that community, you have to hire them from outside that community,” he explained.
“That’s why those unions are important, that’s why it’s important that, look if you see what happens when you have unskilled labor and unskilled people working on buildings, you have fucking disasters.”

Rogan: Train Derailment is a Colossal Failure
Rogan went on to describe the Ohio train derailment as a “colossal failure” for the Department of Transportation.
The Transportation Secretary was heavily mocked not just for the comments on white construction workers themselves, but the fact that he ignored the train derailment during that same appearance.

The Daily Mail reports that Buttigieg “took ten days to say anything in response to the accident and even then appeared to shift some of the blame onto the Trump administration.”
When he did finally talk about the toxic train derailment, his words made things infinitely worse. Here he is downplaying it as just one of many derailments.
Buttigieg: “While this horrible situation has gotten a particularly high amount of attention, there are roughly 1,000 cases a year of a train derailing.”

If you need proof of Rogan’s claim that diversity hires can lead to “fucking disasters,” one only needs to look at Pete Buttigieg, a man specifically appointed to a role in which he had no experience, no knowledge, based on his sexual orientation.
He is one of many Biden administration diversity hires, and he has been an absolute disaster.
