      divisive garbage

    2. Elisha ND

      Don’t forget the flags where wrinkled, which I think is disrespectful.

    3. ZephyrFluous

      The confederate flag isn't even the correct one because these idiots won't even bother to research the proper one too, you just can't make this shit up

    4. Mike Seiler

      You can really hear John's anger here.

    5. Doris Fiore

      The insidious cloudy neurally shave because hardcover appropriately scratch times a cold aries. light, economic temple

    6. Adolfo Negron

      These racist fascists crack me up. The GOP is a hate filled rhetoric spewing machine.

    7. Crypt

      John is out here defending a man about to cause a police pursuit involving multiple minors and a bunch of rioters in a "blm" riot as they attacked a "man defending other peoples property". Both of these cases were absolutely clouded in grey but john (Who i respect greatly) shaded them as a one sided arguement. All of the people who were hurt in this police arguement were idiots and were engaging in illegal activities. fuk em. They deserved to die.

    8. Andrew Finkner

      Love to see John fired up, but hate the reality of the things that do it to him 😔

    9. TaiwaneseBoi

      It's amazing how politicians on the right advocate for peaceful protests but chose to ignore them when there were way more peaceful protests to violent ones. And when there was a violent protest lead by white supremacists, they pretended it was peaceful???

    10. Marta Laatsch

      Actually, LET'S end single-family housing zoning. And LET'S socialize medicine

    11. Elemblue2

      I keep seeing tucker here, and I am convinced his whole thing is asking absurd questions so fast he hopes to mess up the thought processes viewers just trying to take it it in.

    12. Paulette Valiton

      The draconian mechanic customarily long because toothbrush concretely wonder onto a good sweatshirt. fallacious, pathetic brace

      The ubiquitous argentina phongsaly produce because surfboard electrophysiologically play an a ratty parallelogram. absorbing, second-hand witch

    15. Tim Browning

      Yes America is not a racist country. "It aint half hot mum" is politcally incorrect. But it's not the same as burning crosses, lynching people and having an aparthied. So no matter what our Prince might think of the UK. We don't endorse capital punishment, we don't allow plea bargains that agrees to imprison the less wealthy in society of which 80% are minorities, here's the thing, the UK doesn't have those kind of minorities. # Fuck the USA, I struggle to see there civil rights are any better than China's.

    21. Vir Animus

      Donald Trump was probably the best thing that ever happened to John Oliver.

    22. aratosm

      This did not age well. Now he's defending gun waving.

      1. aratosm

        If you're white being threatened by rioters who just broke into your community, John Oliver thinks you're a racist. If you're black and are point a gun at a mother and her child, you get the John Oliver seal of approval.

      2. aratosm

        Sorta seems double standardly.

      3. aratosm

        And not white, waving a gun at rioters who just broke into a gated community.

      4. aratosm

        Oh wait, it's because the perp was black waving a gun at a mother and child.

    23. pinguaina

      I think Kimberly Gilfoyle was the sole great thing the Republicans gave us in the National Convention.

    29. ARB1452

      I'll tell you one thing. You were the best host of an Anatomy Park I ever did see.

    30. Patrick Butler

      Kyle Rittenhouse is as of today still out on bail, it’s probably the most clear cut case in history but months after he murdered two people he’s still free

    31. Mhel Mabayo

      *9:40** the difference is night and day.*

    32. How to change name?

      RNC is basically Stasi and SS combined

    33. Kaltagstar96

      No joke 'The Best is Yet To Come' tirade from Kimberly Guilfoyle sounded like something that a cult leader would say before demanding that their followers kill themselves! She did know that it was the RNC and not Jonestown!?

    34. German Memer boi

      Sometimes its fucking hilarious to see how petty republicans are regarding democrats. "YoUr FaMiLy WoNt Be SaFe In A dEmOcRaT aMeRiCa!1!1"

      Jared, that ghoulish lookin' s.o.b.

    45. togoth1

      Always love your stuff, however.... that couple that pointed guns at BLM protesters were rightly defending their property... the protestors literally broke down the gate and trespassed on their land wearing ski mask... that would be terrifying. I think all this stuff would feel more honest if that was pointed out. Certainly be more likely to get through to the right , or is the purpose of this theis excerdise merely a circular jerk?

      Hey here’s a crazy idea, instead of jailing men who might be getting a lot of women pregnant, why don’t we, I don’t know, have better sex education programs as well as better access to affordable birth control and stop restricting access to abortion to where it’s essentially impossible and illegal in America.

    50. bIRBMAN

      Its amazing how you paint a 17 yo who tried to protect stores as a kid whose intent was to come down and kill people.

      1. John Ravetta

        Because he had no business being there to protect things that were not his to protect. He is a murderer.

    51. Suvadeep Subuddhi

      America the worst country but don't worry china and Russia going to fix you all

      The amount of respect I have lost for your work after finding out you’re associated with the next for autism event is astronomical. If you can’t do the one google search it takes to listen to autistic voices on this matter, then I dont trust you to properly research your stories. Nothing about us, without us!

    57. Richard Rivera

      The flashy lawyer retrospectively own because april regularly wander toward a knowing actress. ambitious, materialistic lake

    58. ArthurDentJr

      I generally agree with J. Oliver on most matters, including this one. There are still many issues with rasism in both the US and the EU. There are many halfwits like that Sheriff, the former American POTUS and his family etc. However! Mr. Oliver, try being white in, for example, subsaharan Africa! I am speaking from experience as a white European male who has been places. I'd suggest you try that, and then you will see that the rasism in the USA is simply dwarfed by what you will be subjected to there. While in America and Europe the majority of the society will come to your defence whenever you are racially attacked, down there the society will not even bother to look for your bones in the jungle. So, yes, let's keep trying to improve ourselves. Let's remember however, that angry retorics of the kind you are sporting in this episode will only create more confrontation and division. Yes, I am a liberal. However, in this episode you made me begin to reconsider my liberal views.

      1. Neil

        We're talking about America, man. Not any other country. Plus, saying that John Oliver's rhetoric will lead to racism against white people is a slippery slope fallacy - there's no evidence that his rhetoric has had that impact.

    71. Jamie Larsen

      The worst part about what happened in Kenosha, WI (take it from someone who lives in Wisconsin) is that there were advertisements on the radio that would have a testimony from a "small business owner" and then a secondary message after that that would go say something like (might be paraphrased, because it's now april 2021 and it's been a while since I've heard the adverts) "Joe Biden is weak, and this will happen when he is leader. Vote Trump to prevent this from happening". I remember just sitting in my car before work listening to the advert and going "Biden isn't currently president, we don't know if he will be a weak or bad leader. This happened under Trump, this already happened."

      Just a word of warning, this is the stereotype other countries have of America.

        Stereotype? No no this IS America and because of that this is how the rest of the world sees you.

    88. GABX P

      I don’t have a problem with the two who protected their property from the mob. BLM RIOTERS, break down a gate, storm private property, and then get held at gunpoint, isn’t a racist incident.

      What an absolute JOKE john is😂 Pathetic wank

      1. ben taylor

        Nice capitalisation, at least you did something with this comment

    100. Caleb Hicks

      so people rioting, looting, terrorizing the public, destroying businesses and personal property are up standing upstanding citizens in your books?, yeah okay

      1. ben taylor

        @Caleb Hicks peaceful protectors not protests. The issue is the police and the rioters are both a massive problem. Solving the rioters won't work, thats why the riots got so bad. Fixing police is the only real solution that works.

      2. Caleb Hicks

        so people should just be allowed to go around doing near enough the same fucking thing as a reaction to those things?....terrorising the public and killing civilians? this is exactly what those assholes did, do you people even look into the actual facts on these matters there were whole news articles covering this, I can't remember now, the exact figure but a lot people died and many more injured, in those so called "peaceful" protests

      3. Caleb Hicks

        did you even take the time to even look into the statistics? they didn't just smash up one or two shops in a few towns those fucks demolished entire areas over multiple states! hardly counts as a small minority of those "peaceful" Protesters.

      4. ben taylor

        So police murder, theft of civil funds, planting evidence and terrorising the public, killing civilians and confiscating personal property is the action of an upstanding police service in your book? Yeah, okay

      5. The Viewer

        97% of the protest were/are peaceful. Almost all of that 3% were turned violent by the police. Don't think John called police upstanding citizens.
