Future future I have lived, who's the meanest of them all.
Well it's Merkel who put on the giant (fake)refugee(immigrant) strap-on and told europe to bend over. Statistics don't lie. Lucky me I live in a god forsaken corner of europe and can laugh at the rest of them, while trying to escape the reality of my own government.
The worst thing about all of this is that comedy and social commentary are slowly dying in Italy. You're either on their side or you are a socialist/radical chic/leftist, you name it. You can't criticize the government, hell, you can't even make a joke about the government, without getting attacked by crazy right-wing illiterates who think that now that they won the election, democracy has to die and people should blindly follow Salvini no matter what. Just look at this goddamn comment section
You say that fascism is death, and people are overeacting comparing this government to the rise of Mussolini. Well, let me tell you that I'll believe you only when I'll be free to make a joke about Matteo Salvini without getting fiercely attacked.
I'm 100% italian and I currently live in Rome ... Just saying, I would love to have Mr. John Oliver as prime minister of my country!! So please, once there will be the next elections, GO FOR IT!!! My vote is yours as sure as the moon in the sky!! ;)
that's actually empirically false. it's been proven, time and again, that immigrants are FAR more law abiding - overall - than citizens of the countries to which they immigrated. but keep spreading the lies and the hate. well done for the future of humanity.
I’m Italian, but I live in the UK for the past 8 years. I’m absolutely ashamed of my country politicians and laws, I would really like to have you as Prime Minister of my country. Oliver for president! ❣️
John, your knowledge of VACCINATION tragedies is very limited, millions of kids are paralyzed from these fake dangerous shots every year. Until you educate yourself more PLEASE STOP PROMOTING such controversial topic, you might end up being responsible for more deaths and health damages of more defenseless kids
A lot of interesting shows in Usa, but I Imagine it's a common strategy talking about others' problems as they didn't concern us or we haven't own, directing the attention on what we consider stranger. Hope laughing is not the only thing we are proud to claim in these "hard times".
Lot of smug right-wing Italians in this comment section. Congratulations on your invention of backwards time travel! Let me know if you accidentally overshoot the 1920s, I’ll make sure the Pope knows Catholicism has become the official national religion again.
i'm italian and in the election wins the """"fascist""""" is not fascist. If this """fascist""""" dont wins the election you see the intere italian population transofrmate in muslim becouse this OLD """"democratic""""" president MATTEO RENZI allow the immigration and whit the immigration the libian prisoners escape and come to italy to kill the italian people specificli the girl so shut up STUPID PIG AMERICAN
Hello everyone my names John Oliver and I'm from England and I love nothing more than telling you all about my latest biscuit adventure, today I'm scoffing....Chocolate Bourbon.
This particular biscuit is crunchy with a mmmm chocolate creamy middle mmmm crunch munch.
More biscuit news later.
You know why people go "i like him and i guess hes a fascist too"? Because somehow we end up with parties so unlikable that the only candidates you dont want to lock away in the asylum is the crazy ones. Imagine just how horrible the traditional parties had to get that fascists look good in comparison.
Thank god ..... the race baiting and immigration lovin left have been thrown out of the parliament in 🇮🇹.... the people have spoken..... Hungary and Italy has already teamed up to create the national uprising in Europe.... save Europe.... publicly execute Merkal and Macron ....
omg as an italian I'm so ashamed. The current government has won pretty much due t fake news, people believe in almost everything they read on the internet. Some idiot writes a fake news like 'immigrants in Italy are the 40% of total population!' (they actually are the 8%, data are on the gov site), Salvini shares this fake news and people believe that. I probably have a romantic idea of politics that has already gone for ever, but I don't like how things are in Italy right now. It's not just social justice, also economics and job issues worry me, I probably will move abroad after graduation.
e certo i 600 000 immigrati illegali che stuprano bambini e donne di tutte le eta , che non lavorano,che delinquono,che spacciano non sono un problema ma no diamo la colpa a salvini e non a renzi , boldrini e gentiloni che hanno praticamente rovinato l'italia.
The European right is a cowardly joke, just like our right movement. Weakness, fear, xenophobia, emasculation, and a toxic masculinity squealing for oxygen - the rise of fascism in the world is the rise of cowardice in weak, white, men.
hotvision Would describe it more as insecurity, these people define so much about their personality via their race (for no reason ironically) that a few people of color coming to their country is the end of western civilization for them.
Renzi's government was just the last of 3 failing governments put in power without elections nor popular consent. He was simply the mayor of a main italian city and actually he was even endorsed by Berlusconi. His try to change the constitution was badly made, rushed, spread via an explicit aggressive forced propaganda on the main media, (he promised the end of his mandate in case of failure) , made of partial or misleading information on its real content, filled by scaring and ominous proposals like changing the senate's election method from the popular vote to a Senate made by regional counselors and mayors, most corrupted political figures in Italy, and giving them additional tasks and parliamentary privilege. It was pointless and it would not have simplified nor reformed properly Italy's political system. Salvini would not have won the last election without his coalition with two other major parties (one of them is Berlusconi's one). On the other hand the five star movement got almost the same amount of votes competing on its own and Grillo was never involved in the project: this is a controversial grassroots political movement that is made by normal citizens featuring so far uncorrupted and unconvited members, and that's a start that gives me hope.
I COME FROM THE FUTURE!!
The demagogue won and we are getting constantly shat on while he keeps waving a few hundred migrants that can't land in front of our face like a keyring to distract us. He is also going after charities instead of organized crime. Go us. T.T
The man you talked about is Luca Traini, his sister was rapped and murdered by african migrants, the police didn't arrest them. It doesn't justifi shooting, but I think it might be worth mentionning...
Carcosa You got your informations wrong. The girl that died wasn't his sister, also she wasn't killed she overdosed, her body then got cut in pieces and hidden by the african migrant. And the african migrant eventually got arrested and he's still in prison right now.
what happened to the lamb after the show mr.Oliver? WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED TO THE LAMB MR.OLIVER? ... he ate it dident he?.. he fucking ate the poor innocent lamb. We demand freedom for all the lambs imprisoned in Mr. Olivers dungeon of torture-fear. thanks.
Gloria SwA emh no , cazzate , se sei nazionalosicalista sei di estrema destra , questa è un IDEOLOGIA POLITICA DI ESTREMA DESTRA ti è chiaro?
''Come te lo devo spiegare che la politica è una cosa e l’ideologia su certe cose è un’altra ?'
In the length of 20 minuites John Oliver Has:
Compared an italian leader to HIV and a condom filled with marinara sauce.
Accused the president of russia of baking a potato using his eyes, instead of sleeping at night,
Showcased a giant working volcano
so, it is absolute bullshit. Crime is increasing, and immigrant crime is lowering. Looks like the comments were just racist, with no fact behind them. Defending them make you look like an asshole, as well.
Source? Because I've been seeing that that "fact" is bullshit. Italians commit more that 80% of crimes, unless you count prostitution, which immigrants are forced to do to get into the country safely. You wanna know what the majority of human traffickers and pimps are in Italy? Italians, you dumb fuck.
+OWO ItsADeadMeme you are saying that immigrants don't bring crimes? They committed 31.9% of the total crimes of Italy since the start of 2018 (+4.5% comparing it to the stats of 2017) funny how they are only 8% of the Italian population.
Oh did he now? And your evidence for such a claim? Because it would sound racist even if it was about crime. It was about crime because of immigration, which is inherently bigoted, and specifically, racist. You wouldn't need to hear his full explanation to get an understanding of what he meant, he said it himself that immigrants are causing the influx of crime, which is 1) false, and 2) bigoted.
