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

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!?

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.

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.

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.

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."

@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.
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
Caleb Hicks

most of the problems in the USA stem from allowing the rich to throw around their power in US politics. they need to change their system to specifically excluded the rich from politics, they don't need the protection of a government: they're rich. if they don't like the rules they can leave, they aren't actually necessary individuals for the country. Remove the middle class: the country falls, remove the lower class: the country falls But! Remove the Rich: and people would barely notice.

Nice show, again shocking truth spiraling out of control in the USA. But you got one thing wrong here, and as a person of Germany, i mean it by saying: its not 1940, but still 2021 Germany. Discrimination against women (highest gender pay gap in eu), against foreigners (burning facilities), even against young people (young lives dont matter) and against old people, that are not rich (here we only care about the rich 60+ folks) is still a thing here right now. And because of this trust in the ellective system that has been destroyed, guess what parties people vote for, now? Jepp, fucking Nazis, welcome to Nazi Germany 2.0!
