  • I'm 70 and I've watched this twice. First time, it made me afraid and helpless to do anything about it. Second time, I showed my 50 year old daughter. The third time, I am taking a small step that I can manage in isolation. I'm going to write to every Muslim group in my state and ask them to do something. Imagine if every Muslim group took up the cause of these people. This is a Human Rights issue, AND one of the biggest Racism issues I've seen. In the past, American's have turned a blind eye because it wasn't happening here. And it keeps happening--all over the world--over and over. I just can't give in and admit that THIS (war, racism, genocide, etc.) is a much bigger part of the collective "human nature" than our small acts of kindness.

  • kudos to john oliver for bringing this issue to the spotlight. it's hard to have dialogue about the oppression of uyghurs because many chinese people are refusing to face the facts. chinese people think it's an insult to them as a nation. human rights is non negotiable. we have a responsibility to speak up against these acts.

  • its just comedy news...

  • John's gym stud bits are what I wait for every episode

  • I can make a story about a kid being jailed by just shooting some footage of him sitting quiet motionless in a corner of a room... well after meal-before bed-inside his own home. The problem is that, by cutting this footage in certain ways I can make you believe that HE IS BEING TORTURED by his parents! Ad guess what? You really believed it !!!! Skilful brain-washers + stupid news readers = successful brainwashing job 👍

  • why haven´t you done a show on Venezuelan Government atrocities? Talking about human rights violators in your back yard? It is the slow motion GENOCIDE documented only by social media.

  • After the Uighur is dealt with the hui will be next, after that the lower Asian the SEA by escalating the south China Sea, then all will be under China hegemony.

  • Search kongsikyung. Then you can find what is and why it is wrong. Victory for our Freedom!!!

  • Many people do not realize, that the US is the biggest threat to freedom and democracy in the world. Look at Bolivia, the US put a rightwing dictatorship there by means of a coup de etat, and they are tearing the country, they privatizing and criminalizing protests. Also look at Honduras, there also the US has destroyed the country. Wake up people.

  • Mark my words everyone who reads this. Adult Superstition will not last forever. I shall slay you with my guitar and with my voice. When the sun rises on a new dawn in a world forever changed, but recovered. You will see us on the stage. We will hunt you. Your corruption will die. Refuse control.

  • Wow, I didn’t know that my school violated so many human rights!

  • Dollar dollar bill y’all

  • He's not funny without his laugh track, I mean his audience.

  • 9k SCUMBAGS watched this video

  • Is it time for the NBA to speak up?

    • ouighours-aux-riches?

  • I lost it at 17:50. 😭😭😭😭😭

  • china's lapdog Pakistan is equally dangerous.

  • I truly think the most disturbing part of this video is how John acts surprised of this. We’ve all know about this issue for 5+ years and he’s surprised? On top of that THEYRE COMMUNIST, wth do you expect? But we have people on the left demanding communism because we have it so bad here. The death of one extremely hardened criminal means we need communism now to people on the left. The people on the left are already doing very communist like things like, killing people exclusively based on political views, getting people kicked out of school and fired for a simple difference of opinion, and demanding we kill every member of a certain race based exclusively on the color of their skin. Democrats refuse to speak up about China because they want to follow in their footsteps it’s disgusting. Republicans for decades now have stood up against radical groups such as the kkk or any other horrible group who uses their political views to hurt people, but the dems are completely silent on the same issues. dems MURDERED people for supporting trump (radio silence from dems) riots where they beat, rape, and kill people (radio silence from dems.) if you dare stand up to the dems they will strike you down and it’s not a small amount of Democrats with these flaws, it’s the vast majority. And shame on everyone who defend the rioters and killers on the left

  • John Oliver expressed 10X the amount of animosity for someone not wanting to wear a mask (Trump supporters) as he did for China literally being the new Nazis.

  • Oliver has a gift for making the horrific at least palatable enough to listen to. I am grateful to him for sharing this.

  • So, who started VW?

  • “Prison-like school facilities” hmmm let me introduce you to Michel Foucault

  • "Story is getting harder to ignore." Very telling line. Who exactly is/was ignoring this?

    • Main stream medias like HBO here for instance, global corporations who have manufacturing in China...Before that they were gurgling CCP's cock hard, so their reporters would not been kicked out from China and factories shut down. They only now made this because Trump is banning Chinas influence in USA, meaning its bad news for these "news" agencies and cause this is already common knowledge for those who actually follow world events with out getting spoon fed propaganda. And of course Oliver had to trow in some "orange man bad" bullshit, but that is nothing new. I'm actually amazed Oliver criticized China, so slow clap for that, too bad China already has been running hard 4th and 5th generation warfare and they are getting good at it. Now it will take least 5 years before rest of the world can get their manufacturing to replace Chinese dependency and it does not help that Oliver and his kin is attacking and preventing actions against China, while China rules its citizens with iron fist and can do pretty much what ever. Then again these opposition groups are run by communists so go figure they are kissing Chinas ass.

  • wonder if any han chinese is shameful of this race game. Nobody talks about Han privilege.

  • Binod

  • John Oliver is in no position to criticize a land he probably has never set foot on. Westerners' self-righteousness never ceases to amaze me. You colonist folks just wanna curb the third world in the underwear-manufacturing-only zone, don't ya? Disgusting animals. You are no better than Trump. A conman trumps a hypocrite.

    • snailevangelist I realize he’s a great performer and commentator so I don’t disagree with you on that. But John Oliver (and your, obviously) are effectively ignorant of what is truly going on there. I (along with many others) have been on the ground at different times as witnesses. The so-called ‘concentration camps’ are deradicalization centers. The terrorism in Northwest China has a long history dating back to the 80s. But I guess you don’t wanna see the truth you don’t wanna see.

    • first, john oliver is extremely critical of british and american imperialism. but even if he wasn't that doesn't make china's actions any less abhorrent. your whataboutism is astounding

  • Thank you John for raising the awareness of the issue.

  • OHHHH the left is finally paying attention to what is going on in China? The right has been screaming about this and how the US keeps pandering to a Govt that treats its own people like dirt and are extinguishing an entire race within their own communist party. No freedom of speech and no access to the true internet the word is not able to get out, only those who risk their lives and freedoms have been able to get the videos and information out. Save China, Save the Uighurs. America needs to stop working with China and bending the knee to them, our sports, Hollywood, and media, are all influenced by China money and have been keeping this down for months. Open your eyes people, There's a Nazi Germany going on in China and you don't even know about it because of Chinas financial pull in this country. It looks like the old school southern democrats here helping a nation extinguish a race and do zero reporting on it. This is why the right says the racists never left the democratic party. I noticed the left is always a few days behind the right so they can twist the story in whatever direction they want, They understand the persuasion power they have. Let China be only a minor glimpse of what will happen here. Remember, these hardcore southern democrats were even too harsh for Hitler, Hitler looked up to Margaret Sangar and her teachings but though her and the KKK were even going too far with the "1 drop rule". Our country is going to be much worse, but people are too busy living in a Hollywood fairytale land that they have lost a grasp on reality and history itself. Research your Democratic Party, there was never a switch. Hardcore racist arent going to flee their beliefs and their flag for anyone. They decided to hide in the Dem party and trick POC and women to vote for them while never actually providing them anything once election is over. The party switch is like acting as if Bloods and Crips could switch sides and colors.... Doesnt work like that, especially if someone is flying a flag for it. When you meet a real Nazi or KKK member, Their views lie in place with the Democratic party. Richard Spencer of the far right is a known donor for liberal parties and past democratic elections. He started the alt-right to give a facetious look to them that is similar to german Nazi's to purposefully conflate racism with Trump. All the research has been done on him as well. Their beliefs lie directly with what the left wants. Everything is so fake in this world its ridiculous.

  • Pour ceux/celles qui savent lire en français For those who can read in French: www.vice.com/fr_be/article/bv8m3q/comment-la-chine-vend-les-organes-halal-des-ouighours-aux-riches?

  • It's ridiculous how much time and energy is spent by John Oliver to try to be funny while talking about that serious a subject. I get it, it needs to be mixed up with some comedy but come on this is too much, he's ruining the message

  • Yes, mock people who refuse to wear face masks, knowing full well some of those face masks may well be made by forced uighur labor 🤷🏻‍♂️

    • you can... wear a mask not made by slave labour

  • stop blaming on China's poilicy, and start to look at your own backfire where your fully armed cops hitting peaceful protestors before throwing them into a unmarked van.

  • I’m from Malaysia. China has traded with Malaysia for 2000 years. In those years, they had been the world’s biggest powers many times. Never once they sent troops to take our land. Admiral Zhenghe came to Malacca five times, in gigantic fleets, and a flagship eight times the size of Christopher Columbus’ flagship, Santa Maria. He could have seized Malacca easily, but he did not. In 1511, the Portuguese came. In 1642, the Dutch came. In the 18th century the British came. We were colonised by each, one after another. When China wanted spices from India, they traded with the Indians. When they wanted gems, they traded with the Persian. They didn’t take lands. The only time China expanded beyond their current borders was in Yuan Dynasty, when Genghis and his descendants Ogedei Khan, Guyuk Khan & Kublai Khan concurred China, Mid Asia and Eastern Europe. But Yuan Dynasty, although being based in China, was a part of the Mongolian Empire. Then came the Century of Humiliation. Britain smuggled opium into China to dope the population, a strategy to turn the trade deficit around, after the British could not find enough silver to pay the Qing Dynasty in their tea and porcelain trades. After the opium warehouses were burned down and ports were closed by the Chinese in ordered to curb opium, the British started the Opium War I, which China lost. Hong Kong was forced to be surrendered to the British in a peace talk (Nanjing Treaty). The British owned 90% of the opium market in China, during that time, Queen Victoria was the world’s biggest drug baron. The remaining 10% was owned by American merchants from Boston. Many of Boston’s institutions were built with profit from opium. After 12 years of Nanjing Treaty, the West started getting really really greedy. The British wanted the Qing government: 1. To open the borders of China to allow goods coming in and out freely, and tax free. 2. Make opium legal in China. Insane requests, Qing government said no. The British and French, with supports from the US and Russia from behind, started Opium War II with China, which again, China lost. The Anglo-French military raided the Summer Palace, and threatened to burn down the Imperial Palace, the Qing government was forced to pay with ports, free business zones, 300,000 kilograms of silver and Kowloon was taken. Since then, China’s resources flew out freely through these business zones and ports. In the subsequent amendment to the treaties, Chinese people were sold overseas to serve as labor. In 1900, China suffered attacks by the 8-National Alliance(Japan, Russia, Britain, France, USA, Germany, Italy, Austria-Hungary). Innocent Chinese civilians in Peking (Beijing now) were murdered, buildings were destroyed & women were raped. The Imperial Palace was raided, and treasures ended up in museums like the British Museum in London and the Louvre in Paris. In late 1930s China was occupied by the Japanese in WWII. Millions of Chinese died during the occupancy. 300,000 Chinese died in Nanjing Massacre alone. Mao brought China together again from the shambles. There were peace and unity for some time. But Mao’s later reign saw sufferings and deaths from famine and power struggles. Then came Deng Xiao Ping and his infamous “black-cat and white-cat” story. His preference in pragmatism than ideologies has transformed China. This thinking allowed China to evolve all the time to adapt to the actual needs in the country, instead of rigidly bounded to ideologies. It also signified the death of Communism in actually practice in China. The current Socialism+Meritocracy+Market Economy model fits the Chinese like gloves, and it propels the uprise of China. Singapore has a similar model, and has been arguably more successful than Hong Kong, because Hong Kong being gateway to China, was riding on the economic boom in China, while Singapore had no one to gain from. In just 30 years, the CPC have moved 800 millions of people out from poverty. The rate of growth is unprecedented in human history. They have built the biggest mobile network, by far the biggest high speed rail network in the world, and they have become a behemoth in infrastructure. They made a fishing village called Shenzhen into the world’s second largest technological centre after the Silicon Valley. They are growing into a technological power house. It has the most elaborate e-commerce and cashless payment system in the world. They have launched exploration to Mars. The Chinese are living a good life and China has become one of the safest countries in the world. The level of patriotism in the country has reached an unprecedented height. For all of the achievements, the West has nothing good to say about it. China suffers from intense anti-China propagandas from the West. Western Media used the keyword “Communist” to instil fear and hatred towards China. Everything China does is negatively reported. They claimed China used slave labor in making iPhones. The truth was, Apple was the most profitable company in the world, it took most of the profit, leave some to Foxconn (a Taiwanese company) and little to the labor. They claimed China was inhuman with one-child policy. At the same time, they accused China of polluting the earth with its huge population. The fact is the Chinese consume just 30% of energy per capita compared to the US. They claimed China underwent ethnic cleansing in Xinjiang. The fact is China has a policy which priorities ethnic minorities. For a long time, the ethnic minorities were allowed to have two children and the majority Han only allowed one. The minorities are allowed a lower score for university intakes. There are 39,000 mosque in China, and 2100 in the US. China has about 3 times more mosque per muslim than the US. When terrorist attacks happened in Xinjiang, China had two choices: 1. Re-educate the Uighur extremists before they turned terrorists. 2. Let them be, after they launch attacks and killed innocent people, bomb their homes. China chose 1 to solve problem from the root and not to do killing. How the US solve terrorism? Fire missiles from battleships, drop bombs from the sky. During the pandemic, When China took extreme measures to lockdown the people, they were accused of being inhuman. When China recovered swiftly because of the extreme measures, they were accused of lying about the actual numbers. When China’s cases became so low that they could provide medical support to other countries, they were accused of politically motivated. Western Media always have reasons to bash China. Just like any country, there are irresponsible individuals from China which do bad and dirty things, but the China government overall has done very well. But I hear this comment over and over by people from the West: I like Chinese people, but the CPC is evil. What they really want is the Chinese to change the government, because the current one is too good. Fortunately China is not a multi-party democratic country, otherwise the opposition party in China will be supported by notorious NGOs (Non-Government Organization) of the USA, like the NED (National Endowment for Democracy), to topple the ruling party. The US and the British couldn’t crack Mainland China, so they work on Hong Kong. Of all the ex-British colonial countries, only the Hong Kongers were offered BNOs by the British. Because the UK would like the Hong Kongers to think they are British citizens, not Chinese. A divide-and-conquer strategy, which they often used in Color Revolutions around the world. They resort to low dirty tricks like detaining Huawei’s CFO & banning Huawei. They raised a silly trade war which benefits no one. Trade deficit always exist between a developing and a developed country. USA is like a luxury car seller who ask a farmer: why am I always buying your vegetables and you haven’t bought any of my cars? When the Chinese were making socks for the world 30 years ago, the world let it be. But when Chinese started to make high technology products, like Huawei and DJI, it caused red-alert. Because when Western and Japanese products are equal to Chinese in technologies, they could never match the Chinese in prices. First world countries want China to continue in making socks. Instead of stepping up themselves, they want to pull China down. The recent movement by the US against China has a very important background. When Libya, Iran, and China decided to ditch the US dollar in oil trades, Gaddafi’s was killed by the US, Iran was being sanctioned by the US, and now it’s China’s turn. The US has been printing money out of nothing. The only reason why the US Dollar is still widely accepted, is because it’s the only currency which oil is allowed to be traded with. The US has an agreement with Saudi that oil must be traded in US dollar ONLY. Without the petrol-dollar status, the US dollars will sink, and America will fall. Therefore anyone trying to disobey this order will be eliminated. China will soon use a gold-backed crypto-currency, the alarms in the White House go off like mad. China’s achievement has been by hard work. Not by looting the world. I have deep sympathy for China for all the suffering, but now I feel happy for them. China is not rising, they are going back to where they belong. Good luck China.

  • Chinese government has an idea that they can shut anyone up, shut any country up, if they spend enough money..... as for money, it comes down products, ironically,also produced by those who suffer. So if they make the people there suffer more , to produce more, they can share some of those "profits" with the others so others can shut up.... sad, but true.

  • 14:40 Take that picture and compare it to Auschwitz and tell me that doesn't look similar.

  • Great sir, love from kashmir to you... You are really a great personality... God bless you dear JOHN OLIVER.

  • Very good, Middle Kingdom revival!!!!!!!!

  • If only Trump had known about it there may no be a trade war.

    • Trump is the only one questioning it to help the trade war. Not everything is black and white.

  • Long live China, will soon be revived

  • so true, so horrible and so funny, sorry...

  • This is completely misleading and short of facts. The people should take a look at what real life is like in Xinjiang. The figure of 1m in concentration camp come from two sources 1. CHRD derived the number after interviewing only 8 people, and it is an US Gov funded organization 2. Adrian Zenz from Germany whose research is mostly from a “ leaked” report provided Istiqlal TV, a TV station based in Germany with jihadist ties cs-tv.org/tv/video-OwUkJQLxd8Q.html

  • “It is what it is.”

    • Middle Kingdom revival!!!!!!!!

  • If you were watching China Uncensored on CS-tv, you'd have been well aware of this for 5 years now. This has been totally known... but your corrupt BS Entertainment masquerading as palatable news has kept you watching only things that make your tummy happy.

  • Damnit Han Chinese !!!!!

  • I stopped watching this show when every episode became an opportunity to bash trump with logical fallacy. If this is the return to reasonably balanced satire I'll resubscribe. Eagerly awaiting next show, for the first time in a long time.

  • Thank you sir👏😃

  • To be fair if I was facing prison for my religion is just drop that religion.

  • John, those are not “protests”, those are stage terrorist attacks where innocent people were killed. I know you are trying to make a point but the lack of respect for the innocent death is still unacceptable.

  • How the hell did they track these people in China? Don`t get me wrong. What China is doing is wrong. But How?

  • Doesn’t the Chinese gov treat everyone miserably?

  • Fake new!

  • Finally.

  • Eyelash girls speech escalated quickly. When she does the other eye she's gonna open a can on the Beirut explosion.

  • China has no friends

    • Hahahahaha, does China need friends? Does the United States have friends? You call slave allies friends?

  • Bhosriwaalo ka ghar mein khud gaand phata hua hai black konmaartey hai aur dikhawa krtey hai dusre desh ke population ke baare mein aisa dikhawa krne ka kya fyda ja. Khud ka ghar mein naali beh rha ho toh

  • brave girl... and what the fuck!???? shame on vw and nike!!!! you re not only paying almost no tax you are also in modern slavery business. no words for that shit! i m shoked! thanks for sharing this information

    • DumpTrump 2020 DumpTrump.

  • American Indians would be treated this way if settlers hadn't all but exterminated them and they still had a state the size of half the US. China is arguably the longest standing country in the world. For them, it wasn't too long ago since the Uighurs turned Beijing into a mountain of bones. China is more unified now than it ever has been, and even the worst oppression here is currently in practice in America. Hopefully China and the US can evolve to something more freedom oriented. No it isn't fair than the Mongols are still being oppressed for exterminating Asia, but there's plenty more to understand here than just American style racism in China.

    • @叶凡 ...when John Oliver explains it he put it in American style racism terms...that is, he skipped over the thousands of years of tradition and just highlighted civil liberty injustices. I don't know if you understand we're making a very similar point?

    • By the way, what I just said that American style wants to express is that China is not racist. Racism is a product of the Western industrial era. There was no such thing in ancient times in the Middle Ages. It used to be called barbarians. If you put it now, it would be considered racist.

    • But having said that, you Westerners must thank our great middle kingdom. Without us, Mongolia will unify the entire Europe, and then world history will be rewritten. Because of our internal problems, the conquering European army stopped advancing to Western Europe and instead returned to Beijing from distant Europe. The final civil war led to the division of the empire.

    • If you want to resurrect the Yuan Dynasty or the Mongol Empire, the great Ming Dynasty must slaughter the Mongols

    • Why is Mongolia anti-China? Think about how the Ming Dynasty retaliated against the Mongolians

  • Bruh the Tom Cruise review in the middle I can’t 😵😂

  • Is this really a necessary episode when East-West relations are at an all-time low since the cold war?

    • @Shiftless Lazycrat yup and yours too, stay safe

    • @Boluwatife Adekoya bye, don't forget to like your own com-.. oh you already did.

    • Shiftless Lazycrat ok have a nice day

    • @Boluwatife Adekoya Funny how you pretend not to care enough to comment, then comment, then thumbs up your own comment. You're as lame as you are ignorant, which is just sad.

    • @Shiftless Lazycrat in a CS-tv comment section lol no

  • 5:54 that is not very nice mama you should consider taking so sensitivity course and learning about other cultures and history’s education is a magical thing

  • I wish I was President, man the world would be so much better. There are so many easy solutions so to things. Ban Chinese trade, get the UN behind this, there we go China stops, if not have every US company stop working through China or we put heavy sanctions on them. Moving on to the Middle East, stop the violence, the US shouldn't be involved with military conflicts in the Middle East, have the US send aid, money, and support to the Middle East. Continue to protect and work with the Kurds. Help rebuild Syria, stop dealing with Turkey until they stop killing Kurds. Finally, tax the rich, but do in which you can tax the stock of the 1%. Jeff Bezos doesn't get heavily taxed because he doesn't make any money, all his worth is in Amazon stock. You can tax stock ownership over 30% of any company. Also ban guns, we don't need ARs. Free college would be nice. Slash our military budget. Reform our education system. Convert oil and gas jobs into renewable resource jobs. Pay employees to switch from coal, gas, and oil to solar, wind, and nuclear forcing companies to move over, and help them switch making the US more earth conscious. We can also invest more into our people, I rarely see the US give grants or money to people who are trying to better their communities or environment, why don't we do that. The US can do so much but chooses to continue to help a select few, what is wrong with helping everyone. Well I guess you have to pay the people who paid for you to win. Welp, maybe I will run for president, I will be much better than whoever we are going to have. If you read this thanks for reading, add stuff that you wanna see the US do!

  • Not available in England, Australia or Canada...wOnDeR wHy

  • Trump is a hypocrite.

  • Who would have thought John Oliver and Pat Robertson would agree on Barney and Tinky Winky?

  • As a German I fell from my chair at the VW WW2 line ... I mean ... yeah it's true ... it's how they started after all

  • Nearly 9000 dislikes? I never knew destroying a culture, mass incarceration and indoctrination, forced labor, tearing families apart, and complete violations of basic human rights by an authoritarian dictatorship had so many fervent supporters. Sickening.

  • We should not be silent about this!! This is absolutely messed up. why haven’t we learned from the holacust?

    • Of course not. The fact the world is sitting by and doing nothing is a crime!

  • Boasting employment statistics within forced labor is like trump Boasting great ratings during a pandemic. Dick.

  • The han chinese just sent mongol archers and uyghurs to kill us during the 1700s and 1800s. They call us Miao, but you should know us by Hmong. Same tactics, such as sending hans to their area and giving hans better opportunities. That was a time when they finally expanded to the southern region and took the last of our land. This has been going on for 5000 years.

  • Trump admired the way the Chinese government dominated their people...

    • BS. This has nothing to do with Trump. This has to do with the insanity and brutality of the CCP!

  • DumpTrump 2020 DumpTrump.

    • @Insta Kee but still, dump Trump

    • Nothing to do with Trump, but the insanity and brutality of the CCP.

  • The thing that makes this worse than the holocaust, is that fact that American companies are directly benefiting from it. Humans are truly incapable of learning from past atrocities.

    • IBM?

    • you ain't wrong

    • In this sense it's absolutely identical. There were also companies during WWII that exploited the free labour of the Jews, etc. in camps. Looking up the origins of the capitalistic system, experimented within the plantations, leads to understanding how it has always been linked to slavery and human rights violations. U.S. prisons today also use this type of free labor, leading to a business of mass incarceration...

    • some humans have always benefited from such incidents. Why would they learn? It is upto other people to take them down and save these people.

  • “Don’t cry mommy. I told you not to show your tears” ... is that in any way weighing on YOUR conscience?

  • Oh now you care about China. Well say good bye to hearing about China if Biden wins. Biden will blow Xi like a Lolli pop.

  • Hes talks like stewie Griffin

    • You mean with a British accent?

  • House of Cards should have ended at the season 2 finale.

  • Yea the UN should do something. However an organization that's original mandate was to ensure nothing like the holocaust could ever happen again has allowed it time and time again without doing anything to stop it until it either gets really bad or sends a letter. Rwanda had UN peacekeepers on the ground that were not allowed to act to prevent anything, the Russian and Chinese genocides in the 50s and 60s, most of Africa in the last 40 years, Bosnia and Serbia, and many many more. They don't care because China sits on the security counsel and human rights counsel so they have veto power. The UN is not effective and beyond corruptible.

  • OK so what do I do? My politicians cant pass a bill to save people from being evicted from their home. They cant enforce mask wearing. What can I do?

  • What's up my uyghurs

  • www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2019/03/us-uighurs-guantanamo-china-terror/584107/

  • Now do Palestine

    • Palestine is nothing like the XINJIANG. Palestine is separate.. It has its own government. NOT XINJIANG! Why aren't Muslims protesting against China?

  • China is the most capitalist country ever

  • Fact check Oliver on Trump statements. He rarely gets the quotes remotely correct and in context.

  • i would love if you could clerify thelincolnproject, as it seems kinda biased bullshit...

  • Modern gulag

  • I loved his flexing rant 💪🏼

  • Propaganda...even a roasting show. Hypercritical westerners....

    • @楊Yang What do you mean? Your username is Chinese and you're supporting the Chinese government, it's pretty obvious that you live in China.

    • @Stef Myt Really? Am I living in THE country as u said?

    • What part of this is propaganda? Showing people how a country has been violating human rights and killing people in the thousands is not propaganda.

  • One of the reason no one is speaking up about this is because no one wants to start a war with China a country who is Rich and powerful and has nukes. Unless they directly attack their own country leaders are not going to do anything. The US and others only joined ww2 when they were threatened.

  • Who ever has not been there need to stop criticizing!! Which country will accept terrorist action???? Prisoners in NY made hand sanitizers during pandemic!! Plz Stop the double standard!

    • Source and what terrorist action

  • मोटा होगया साले !!!

  • They don't wanna talk about this ! www.google.com/amp/s/www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8587881/amp/Cuban-business-owner-Louisville-decries-BLMs-mafia-tactics.html

  • You tell lies ! You have never been to Xingjiang you know nothing about how Uyhgurs are treated in China. I'm a Chinese I dont like the dictatorship of ccp, but you are lying about Uyghurs ! Human rights ? If there's no human rights there's no human right for all people under the ccp's regime, but the CCP treats uyghurs even better than Han chinese. Have you heared about innocent people killed by Uyghurs with islamic extremism ? Normal Uyghurs are live well in China! You liar !

    • I wouldn't call "sending people thousands of kilometres away into forced labour" and "killing people in the thousands" living well.

  • Your synopsis of Minority Report was fantastic, but you left out the part about drugs. The precogs are crack babies

  • OK then let's stop wearing masks then

  • Anyone else find the unfunny pause breaks Oliver does while talking about re-education camps a little disturbing?

  • #FreeTibet 🙏🏼

  • What about the buddhists of tibet..... They are being Tortured to death

    • stop that. don't start with "what about the" because you can do that to so many problems in the world. but right now the topic is about Uighurs.

  • In a previous video you adviced to double check the sources. Uigours belong to Altaic people like Hungarians, Turks and others. In the communist China all religions were banned for decades, even the Confucianism. So Uigours were one more of the rest minorities inside China. That changed when Turkey claimed that its the protector of all Muslims and started to sent weapons to Uigours and trained many of them to rebel. The issue is more complicated that looks. In western hemisphere people ignore history and make hasty conclusions. That have been proved in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran and many places as well.

  • And the fact that he said human rights should not be negotiable, SPEAKS VOLUMES.

    • And the fact that somehow the UN assigned CHINA to the UN's council on Human Rights! The UN IS USELESS!

  • Thank you for talking about all these things that no one talks about.
