This is a test of the repression some on this site think Japan should embrace in their alignment with China.

John Oliver's last Week Tonight is top-notch reportage, I recommend it to everyone. He covers some important issues both domestic and international.

I saw this coming the minute Oliver started talking about China.

Trump must be envious of Xi’s ability to censor at the wave of a hand. Trump has to spend exhaustive hours trying to delegitimize news that he doesn’t like.

Nope, that's liberal sjws you refer to.

Stunning retort. What might a sjws be?

John Oliver is quick-witted, intelligent, morally sound, very funny, multi-award-winning, and wonderfully foul-mouthed comedian/reporter. He really does fight for social justice, and speaks out against social injustice. His own country is now, by the way, the USA, where he is very much a success.

Let's hope, Civitas, that you are railing against social justice while in your own country, lest you too be labelled a failure.

I remember John Oliver in 2016 making fun of Donald Trump's presidential candidacy.

Tee hee, John!

"Liberal sjws" are social justice warriors.

In 2018 to say what is right and good is to get hated upon and censored. Everything has changed.
