    If there was an Armenian genocide, then there was also a Turkish genocide too. We fought against English, French, Italians, Greeks, and Armenians for our freedom. And we won, calling it a genocide is just plain jealousy. Perhaps you want us to pay money to Armenians for defending our nation against them, well you won’t get that money. If someone will pay a price, they’ll be those nations who invaded our country, plundered, raped, and killed Turkish people. They’re gonna eventually pay the bigger price. Also they should pay for the Native American genocide too. Calling wars of the history a genocide won’t change the fact that you are the ones who actually committed genocides throughout your shameful history.

    You think that's bad, look at elections for judges. Unlike the Sheriff, they won't tell you what they think of policies, prior ruling, or any other relevant information. They can't even tell you if they identify as a Democrat or Republican (which shouldn't matter, but the alternative of choosing someone based on their name seems so much worse).

    Here this Blue Church cleric again conflates "Immigrant" with "foreign invader." An immigrant goes through the system and gets vetted. An illegal alien, or foreign invader, simply jumps the border because he can't be bothered to obey our laws. John Oliver shoots the rest of his sermon in the foot with this intellectual dishonesty.

      @The Four Horsemen Well, what about it specifically? Do you not know how to make a point? Are you university indoctrinated by the Blue Church? Given your passive aggressive stupidity, I'm guessing that's the case and you were taught feelings over facts. Now, play the game where you say "You guessed wrong, pal! That's not what I'm saying, because I was too dumb and passive aggressive to say it!"

    Arpaio was convicted of federal crimes but instead of doing his time he was pardoned by known criminal Traitor Trump. So, Anti-law Arpaio spent his career locking people up for smoking cannabis but when he was busted for actual crimes he ran like the little bitch he is. I hope someone hunts him down and puts him in a pink jumpsuit like the ones he forced non-violent victims of the anachronistic anti-cannabis laws to wear. He needs to wear his tiny pink jumpsuit in a tent in the middle of Alaska. Fucking criminal.

    Anybody in Polk County Florida knows about Sheriff Grady Judd. He is one of the main reasons I avoid driving through that County. Also the fact that it's nothing but meth labs and cow pastures. But he definitely ranks up there with some of the worst in the country. He led the charge in Florida against medical marijuana. If you're not for recreational marijuana I can understand that (not really), but who is backwards enough to really be against medical marijuana? Welcome to Florida.

    So she's annoyed because she found his volume and his message offensive....and retorts by screaming offensively. Does she not honestly see why that's pointless? Although, more disturbing to me, is how few people reacted to a woman's shrill screams. Sad when that behavior is treated like business as usual. Oh, well. That woman has cemented her place in memedom. Might I suggest Mr. Rogers's lovely drawl singing, "It's a beautiful day in the....." cut to "gayborhood. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!"

      This view disgusts me please consider: It's not speeding up something inevitable to criminalize and abuse victims of drug addiction; they are using resources that could have gone towards treatment to ruin and in many cases end lives. Do any amount of research (not simply listening to authoritarian talking points) on addiction and recovery and tell me how much jail helps compared to treatment. The US approach to drug treatment, unfortunately, is demonstrably counterproductive. If you haven't figured that out, you desperately need to practice both rationality and empathy. Failing that, even an informed, purely selfish person should realize the resources wasted and lives ruined make even the most sheltered community less safe. Imagine if addicts were treated like cancer patients in actual developed countries with single-payer healthcare; not only would their recovery numbers be massively improved, the risk/gain calculus of stealing air conditioners is shifted in favor of comfortable homes for all. My point: be decent to each other and bask in climate-controlled comfort, or roast in your proto-fascist microdystopia. Love critically

    I love how liberals say what trump said then later use it against him. I love you Mr Oliver, but the more you BLAME trump, the more you are not telling people what they should do.....now I'm not saying you aren't but your message, vs trumps message are QUITE different. You heffers need to wake up, trump has been talking to you, but if you use talk shows, cnn, or msnbc, you are missing VERY CRUCIAL INFORMATION. That is not a lie, you seriously need to stop thinking this is political, and if you listen to people with a political agenda, you are absolutely heffing yourself........seriously, WAKE UP.
