So important. I remember watching this scene when it originally aired. Whew. (And loved what see-linewoman explained about why this kinda Black media is no longer on the air.)
OMG PROTEST IN HONG KONG
VERY ANTI-CAPITALIST PRAXIS
This BBC news report interviews a bunch of financial sector workers, bankers etc and says that they’re all totally supportive of the protest, so no, not exactly anticapitalist. I wonder how those guys feel about the general strike that’s been called though.
When Annie Hart got out of her car in East Los Angeles earlier this month, she was expecting to find two white-furred, abandoned dogs who had been wandering around the streets together for weeks. What she didn’t expect, however, was to find a canine couple whose friendship would astound and inspire her.
I have grown to dislike Oliver’s delivery. He largely makes his own commentary here on having to ask “hard questions” and being frightened himself because people he has no personal association with are being destroyed; not him.
It’s not a question that needs to be asked, and it certainly isn’t hard to figure out.
further, he pointedly states that not caring about this is completely natural for us!and that when children are using media to cry out against our violence and murder and genocide is the time that we are to question drone strikes!
The way you convey information and cover events creates a narrative and contributes to cultural paradigms, John Oliver!
i cant believe im hesitating making this post but
if someone has a comfort object, like a blanket or a stuffed animal or anythign that they have to sleep with in order to make them feel secure or positive, don’t fucking make fun of them. i don’t care where it is or why you feel that it’s funny or childish, but don’t make fun of them.
And don’t you fucking take it away from them.
