  • Don't worry, Biden said it's just a cultural difference.

  • If corporations such as the MLB and even Nike can take political sides in the US. Nike and other American corporations that do business in China should be able to use some type of leverage to pressure them to end this.

  • Me watching the eyelashes intro: WTF! I´m not watching this... 30 sec later: well played my friend!

  • "Don't cry mother. I told you not to show your tears." That little girl has been through so much.

  • Asking the company made by hitler if there oppose to concentration camps lol at least he was obviously ok with it .. if any company really cared or had a soul they would pull all products out of China they won’t cause they don’t care stop looking for a soul in a company they don’t exist .

  • "State run boarding schools" Me, A Canadian: Hey, I've seen this one before!

  • If you support Uighur just buying a Samsung.

  • Imagine johne oliver make a video about Yemens situation just like this one. John Oliver care about human wright or not?

  • Nothing to see there. You want another Chinavirus-19?

  • "what the hell are human rights"- china

  • China: Japan should apologize for the nanjing massacre Japan: we did apologize other countries: CHina what about tianamen square massacre China: tianamen who?

  • And thanks to Joe Biden, we have been able to continue similar labor policies in the US prison systems by putting dark skinned people into the prisons for relatively minor crimes for which whites, except maybe the poorest whites, are not committed. And Kamala Harris while State Attorney General refused to let anyone out of prison who would have been released under a new policy to let the least offensive folks out of prison so that they could be kept in the system working for something like a dollar a day. Don't think so? Google it fool

  • What China is doing is probably inspired by the way the US treated American Indians in the late 19th century and early 20th. The biggest difference is that US didn't have nearly as many Indians as China had Uighurs.

  • China is not secular, it is atheist.

  • China just has a different way of operating. At least according to their little puppet, Biden, says. And Oliver licks the ass of the DNC. Hypocrite much?

  • Welcome to the new age of selective journalism, where you get half the truth on one side of story!

  • guys, the woman at 05:50 was saying "I hear the prople in Xinjiang" (end) and the translater said they are all robber and thief? are u serious???

  • Doing the tankie arc 7 months in advance, well played my friend

  • This is a masterfully fake. Oliver, GO SEE FOR YOURSELF and please d

    • Don't use the word atrocities for knowledgeable experts with speak Chinese and speak the truth have described a giant effort to create a future for these people where they will be proud Chinese citizens, something that needs to be initiated towards children to give them what they didn't have just a year or two ago, actual knowledge of China, it's history, and its plans for the future. It's hard for most of us to understand that for the PCP, freedom of the people comes before freedom of the individual. But the result of China's policies has already put an end to the violences and the murder of 800 Han Chinese during their separatus Rebellion

  • Disgusting! what a typical western propaganda shit 🤬 My XinJiang friend would punch you in the face.

  • This has been largely disproven and not to mention the US had LITERAL concentration camps at the border. The American war mongering with China is unreal.

    • No it has not been largely been disproven unless you are listening to Chinese propaganda which clearly you are--sure America does bad shit but you are using WHATABOUTISM--both are bad

  • lolz 3 stars

  • Human rights are non-negotiable.

    • that doesnt exist

  • Even with how fucked up America can be, we don't realize how good we have it

  • With some periodic laugh,I really enjoyed watching this video.:-) very entertainingly interesting presentation.

  • He had more enthusiasm in the police episode than this one. Is that story more important. This guy is a scumbag

    • How are you supposed to feel enthusiastic when talking about police violence , can't you see the context ?

  • John Oliver is a garbage human being

  • Well one lear later maybe John Oliver was wrong...

  • mrlevel.info/two/oWSqmqN4gp_UZH0/vhi-i

  • Of course Volkswagen a company that was created by a man who made concentration camps the hip new thing in Germany between 1938-1945 has concentration camps in their supply chain... i guess it was grandfathered in...

  • 12:05 sound like the perfect working conditions Amazon aspire to!

  • Another white guy tell others what to do.... guess colonialism is in the British's DNA

  • I really don't believe this narrative.

  • its been 9 months John, lets get back to the eye lashes

  • America has 1 Goerge Floyd incident, China has over 10,000 incident of racism this volume speak for itself

  • Herbert Diess CEO Volkswagen supports the slave labor of the Uyghurs

  • mrlevel.info/two/coWAZn-ZbKbGeGg/vhi-i

  • The enormous aluminium superiorly snatch because jury bareilly flower until a historical armchair. amuck, illustrious barometer

  • Biden called the CONCENTRATION CAMPS a Chinese cultural norm...

    • @Pete Swafflemeyer Or google "Biden calls CCP concentration camps Cultural norms"

    • source or gtfo.

  • The CCP was the most murderous regime in human history, Just by its self, the CCP is the #1 cause of unnatural death in the 20th century.

  • VW spokesman, CLEARLY lied, LOOK at his eyes dart the moment he answered.... Any person with common sense knows. (Any chance that can come back and bite VW in the rear?)

  • predicitve policing system...so what, the west have been doing that for like ever.

    • @Pete Swafflemeyer my comment is about the policing systems in the west (surveillance by die NSA, CIA, etc.), and you just said something totally unrelated

    • the west? where exactly are those concentration camps? Can you name one, that is currently active? And more importantly y - does that right the Chinese concentration camps, even if there were any in the west? Stop being an asshole, thanks.

  • WOW uigurs are working in factories how horrific. literally millions of han chinese people work in factories. uigurs and han chinese have been living as one country peacfully since the qing dynasty so shut up john oliver

    • Also ancient kingdoms existed NEVER meant the people were happy under them.

    • Yes uighurs are very "peacefully" living in conc camps,the happiest place on earth😂😂

  • Oh, yes, remember how America welcome all those millions of Muslim refugees from the middle east... Oh and the Palestinians, let's not forget how America (the world really) is so worried about the Palestinians... You guys should start a refugee, or passport free area for Uygurs in America. Save them!

    • @joseph cooper the refugee from middle east are a thing becoz western crusader has an urge to kill some infedel and make their life hard, how many western created refugee lost their home due to china? silly kid can never has the gut to take up your own responsibility. haha, the story of washingpowder kid admitting he cut down his father's tree is reality just a fake story, like all the fake news.

    • How many refugees does china take in?😂

  • Whenever Americans or the British criticise other countries for the way they treat Muslims, it is the epitome of hipocrisy. The invasion of Iraq, anyone? The two decade long war in Afghanistan anyone?

    • Did the Us have to fight in Iraq? Afganistan? Vietnam? Korea? Also, no journalist who lives in a country that is currently at war against another nation or occupying another nation has any right to complain about human rights anywhere on Earth. Get a grip.

    • @joseph cooper wars that is against the will of UN, which is against the world? western start an unholy crusade, they fought an unnecessary war for 2 decades, killing thousand of innocents, displacing millions of families, turning more to poor bagger. not sure which nut in your brain went wrong to think such a horrible thing is "has to be fought". you literally use a fabricated fake evident to start a war, what are you?

    • Wars that has to be fought HAS TO BE FOUGHT.Also it's pretty much the world vs Chinese government, cause everyone except probably north korea HATES Chinese government

  • You know you are fabricating lies when your opening is using some teenage girl saying we should do this or help that to stir up audience’s emotion. It remembers me the good old days when the US used this trick with some crying teenage actress claiming come from Yemen, and a small tube of laundry detergent. The whole episode is full of lies and zero hard evidence. Thank you for showing us the true color of HBO, Oliver, Shame on you.

    • thats why "young adult" novel featuring a teenage girl saving the world is a trendy story now adays

  • God dammit, just teach me how to do my lashes without waxing poetic about Chinese atrocities. I CAME TO HEAR ABOUT MY LASHES

  • Have you ever been Xinjiang?? Stop lying with satellite pictures without meaningful information. How can u link this to concentration camp? Genius IQ.

  • The cold ex-husband synthetically gaze because defense only type above a capable babies. spotted, hideous high betty

  • another "honest" media. yes western is the champion of human rights and telling the truth~~

    • @James Sarantidis i dont realy read those myself as i travel to china very often before covid. i made a search just now, there are plenty of channels on youtube. CGTN (if you want to hear what the opposite party is saying) and some british and american vloggers living in china such as "daniel dumbrill", "Cyrus Janssen", "barrett", "living in china" to name a few. you dont need to believe what i say, but need to have independent thinking. since when the western media got the reputation of telling the truth? just look back not far ago, all the wars happened in middle east, and the "massive destructive weapon" was just a bottle of washing powder and a plain lie. and now a "genocide"?? come on guys!! uyghur population increased more than doubled in the past decades. what a failure the chinese government had. lol.

    • @wazhrmghg Consider me intrigued. I would like to learn more. Do you have a newspaper or site were I can read stuff not influenced by western media?

    • @James Sarantidis thx for the text man, you made your point. pls go to xinjiang or any part of china to see it in person, you will realise 95% of the those "facts/truth" are plain bullshit propaganda.

    • The problem is that these atrocities exist regardless of who is saying it. No country, no media and no person is always honest, that is not the point. This is not a contest of who is better, at least, I do not care about that. What I care about is that people there are suffering and denied even the right to have a family. This is a fundamental human right, no matter the culture you come from. Even more so in traditional China, where family is the basis of the society. Do other countries do this? YES! And they must be stopped as well. The first step to solve the problems of our modern societies is to find them, accept them and then understand them. Today's focus was China. I've seen similar videos about US and I know that the same is happening in my country. I also know that when enough people protest, changes can be made (see, China, USSR, USA and history in general). So, please, let's agree that what is happening there is not right and a solution must be found where these people can live with respect and decency.

  • Big liar, you have lost your credibility John Oliver

    • Pete Swafflemeyer freedom of speech?

    • Pete Swafflemeyer freedom of speech?

    • shut up, bot.

  • Look, the reporter manage to proof that han Chinese hates Uighur after interviewing one woman! Wow....

    • @Jonny C No, no, no, me no from China. China no youtube. Me just a guy who has been puking non-stop watching america hypocrisy.

    • Where in China are you from exactly “Simon”

  • America killed muslim every where, but for some reasons, they care so much about muslim in Xinjiang. Oh, even president Xi is only allowed to have one children but uighur can have as many as their heart desires, but they are being genocide.

  • 10:54

  • Its just a big joke to you huh

  • Chinese culture revolution, Tianmen massacre and Uighur genocide.

    • The Uighur population in Xinjiang share roughly the same proportion to the rest of the Population in China as the Irish Catholic/Nationalist/Republican population in the North of Ireland to the UK/British State - between 1969 and 1998 the UK imposed Internment without trial, Massacres of Demonstrators in Derry Ballymurphy and the New Lodge - Shoot to Kill Squads - Collusion with Protestant/Unionist/ Loyalist Death Squads - Killing Children in the street with Plastic Bullets - The Prison population went up by 400% and prisoners were subjected to torture and routine beatings - or died in Hungerstrikes- Mass Surveilance and Military Forts set up in Nationalist Areas - with Armed Checkpoints and Controls a feature of daily life - Political Representatives of Nationalist Community where banned from Media and banned from Travel to Britain - 100,000's held under Prevention of Terrorism Act Screening - Many Innocents were Framed for alleged Terrorist Acts .... All this seems far harsher than the measures imposed in anti terrorism/Deradicalisation Campaign in Xinjiang yet no one not even the most radical of Irish Republicans accused the British State of "Genocide" during the 1970's or 1980's. The British State eventually negotiated a settlements of sort - but the socialist secular Sinn Fein itself led the call for a "Peace Process" it appears to be difficult for state in China to find anybody to negotiate with amongst the minority of Uighurs involved in Radical Islamic/Jihadist groups that were responsible for Terror Attacks in Xinjiang. There are over 300,000 Uighurs who are members of the Communist Party of China in Xinjiang and their voices are rarely heard in Western Media I suspect that they would find the accusation that they ars victims of "Genocide" to be laughable

  • these camps are similar to Guantánamo Bay Navalbase. Worse and bigger but similar.

  • The delirious rotate enthrallingly care because orange worrisomely reflect alongside a rude richard. ruthless, courageous drug

  • The useful cloth predominantly interfere because carrot reportedly reduce behind a impossible rotate. lopsided, animated expert

    • Good attempt at Google translate. A for effort 👍

  • Talk about China getting hit by a country built on wiping out native residents and slavery of black people. US politic seems to be heavily more interested in foreign issues, rather than internal issues like racism, gun control, and income inequality. Over half a million people died, and all politicians care is something they have absolutely no real insight of happened somewhere they have never been to. The most important human right shouldn't be the right to LIVE? The world needs to work together to fight this pandemic right now, lets do more on that.

    • Whataboutism and obfuscation, nice. You know that two countries can both be wrong at the same time, right?

  • The terrible pvc dimensionally coil because dictionary firstly disagree amongst a mighty wrist. ill-informed, thundering option

  • Lawrence Wilkerson

  • The shallow climb histomorphometrically tour because digger individually glue next a public wrist. deadpan, spotty reindeer

  • Iraq has weapons of mass destruction.

    • It's starting to sound like that isn't it?

  • Another reason to China

  • After all you cannot take comedians as journalists. They are just pretending to be serious and grab your attention. One question, do you know there are many Uighur joined ISIS? I am not saying there is no injustice there. But not as wide spread as the lier Zen claimed.

    • All right wing governments suck.

    • So what?

  • Information from global time: At the time of the first national census in 1953, the total population of Xinjiang was 4.8736 million. According to the sixth national census in 2010, the figure registered 21.8158 million, an increase of 3.3 times in 57 years. In recent years, the total population of Xinjiang has kept growing steadily. The statistical data show that from 2010 to 2018, the population of ethnic minorities and that of the Uygurs in Xinjiang has witnessed steady growth, while that of the Han ethnic group in Xinjiang has slightly increased. In terms of population size, from 2010 to 2018, the permanent resident population of Xinjiang increased from 21.8158 million to 24.8676 million, an increase of 3.0518 million, or 13.99%. Among them, the population of ethnic minorities increased from 12.9859 million to 15.8608 million, an increase of 2.8749 million, or 22.14%; from the perspective of ethnic groups, the Uygur population increased from 10.1715 million to 12.7184 million, an increase of 2.5469 million, or 25.04%; the population of Han ethnic group increased from 8.8299 million to 9.0068 million, an increase of 176,900 people, or 2.0%. The growth rate of the Uygur population is higher than not only that of the regional in total, but also that of other ethnic minorities, and is obviously much higher than that of the Han population. From the perspective of growth areas, the population of four southern Xinjiang prefectures increased from 8.951 million to 10.355 million, an increase of 1.404 million, or 13.55% during that period, which is the fastest in Xinjiang.

  • The lamentable snake systematically prepare because poultry arguably fasten via a alluring calculus. good, pricey maraca

  • I'm not happy about the genocide denial coming to the surface recently. It comes in such a vast variety too, such as "whataboutism" or claiming "western propaganda", etc. The horrifying fact that other countries are attempting to decimate entire groups of people does not make this situation any less terrible. They all deserve our attention, our outrage and our support for the victims. The authoritarian chinese state, like our own homemade corrupt oligarchy, is not what I would consider a reliable source. They will show you want they want you to see to indoctrinate you, this is what the ruling class has always done.

    • Dude the energy from these people is WEEEEEIIIRRRRD. Why are they so quick to deny a GENOCIDE? Even if you do doubt it, it would benefit the oppressors to doubt, no? Should the issue not be treated with a bit more scrutiny/care then?

  • Oh like China used the US government playbook for cultural genocide... Edit: After the regular genocide of course.

  • That moment when you hear something so crazy, that your brain can’t process it. I thought the twenties were finished with those moments... but here we are.

    • I would have thought it ended in the forties...

  • The more I look into the Xinjiang reports, the more I found it more questionable. Why? Because it doesn’t gel with facts on the ground. The Uighur population has increased overall, not decimated; has higher birthrate than its Han counterpart in Xingjiang; can freely practice their worship. Has China heavy handily trying to eradicate Muslim extremism? Most likely. Has they trying eradicate a race, I seriously doubt it. Why should China allow existence of mosques and religious practice if they want to eradicate the culture, and send more if their children to college? Where is the original evidence of 1-3 million population held in concentration camp, have they been vetted? I think with the deep pocket, news media should do their own independent digging instead all resorting to the same reports coming from same think tanks. Because of the discrepancy of story and what’s happening in the ground, I’m having a reservation on these stories until further verification, maybe a few year down the road. Remember the Iraq’s WMD? The media was damn sure of it. You don’t want to trigger a war or a major because allegations that conflicts with reality. Yes, I do believe Trump Admin has a lot to do with this somehow. I hope I’m wrong. So far I have been right about Trump.

  • why u intent to lie??

  • They’re totally gonna erase millions lives🤣 They’re totally gonna get away with it too😂 There’s not enough good in the world, The US picks weak leaders now so why get involved or even worry about it now? Some forests just wanna burn down, let it burn.

  • How a comedian becomes a terrorist

  • How a tiktok user becomes a terrorist in 10 seconds.

  • Source tiktok lmao

  • John Oliver have you been to Xinjiang yourself before put in your few cents and broadcasting here. You are cherry picking news to comment. You are an old fool and stop joke around topic with human right and do something more meaningful in you life.

  • Oliver is a tool. Radical Democrats don't even care about the Uighurs who are truly being oppressed because it downplays their struggle to be supported by tax money simply for identifying themselves as a victim class. Disgraceful.

    • ??

  • It always has to be about trump. Tds much 🤪

    • ??

  • Wow exposing travesties... that's not like you john!...

  • do not stop talking about the suffering of Uighur people

  • @7:05 Adrian Zenz His anti-China propaganda is the main reason/source of this Uyghurs "genocide" Mr. John Oliver, you've been duped, my dear sir...!

  • Hey can you do an episode on what Biden said about the Uighurs issue?

  • why do you have to be profane ? can't you make a joke with it?

  • Suspected extremists detained and indoctrinated in camps ... you mean like Guantanamo Bay?

    • also: John already made a video specifically on Guantanamo Bay. So what is your fucking problem?

    • a hundred (most of which are actual terrrorists) against like a million civilians in concentration camps based on their religion only, is sure as hell comparable. God, you're a fucking joke, bud.

  • Funny how I haven’t heard John say anything about a modern genocide since Biden got in office

    • because he hasn't commited any. nice try.

  • Flooded by ccp bots. Unsurprisingly 😅

    • yes and all of a sudden too.

  • Jul 2020: *Shocking news about Uighurs* April 2021: *All information are fake, all the claims are wrong and Uighurs are living happily. * Bots detected.

  • I would definitely encourage the Chinese government to continue sending Uyghur workers across the country and if possible, to other destinations across the globe (think of the Belt & Road infrastructure projects) if they can manage to keep the work force away from possible radicalizing influence at the hosting sites where some might disappear and reappear as a jihadist. Working as migrant workers is the only way to escape the traditional agriculture path in the home region which often than not has proven a dead end in many places of the wolrd. In fact, I would encourage China to do this not just to Uyghurs but every ethnity that is facing a perpetual poverty and surplus labor issue, and not just China, but every developing country.

  • Dominating People Is Hard Work !!!

  • Early on propaganda, classic Oliver.

  • He is really funny without the "live studio audience".

  • This is fake news. There is no credible or reliable evidence to support these claims.

    • Because your arguments have any evidence ? You can't just say "you're wrong" and call it a day. John Oliver brings evidence, you don't. Goodbye CCP bot

  • Now you know where HBO gets its budget

  • mrlevel.info/two/sX53hYZsZnDHaWg/vhi-i

    • oh and the subject matter of the whole channel seems very specific to the whole one china policy rhetoric

    • Weird how the video has votes and comments disabled. Almost as if they can't bear the consequences of saying nonsense and don't allow discussions. Like the CCP.

  • en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkistan_Islamic_Party

  • mrlevel.info/two/pntiYZ6Tro3Uf2g/vhi-i

  • Ironic how that girl is calling out China while using a Chinese app and giving money and big data to China lol

  • There are quite a few falsehoods here. There are 66 recognized minority groups in China, and the state treats them not with disdain and trying to wipe them out, but actually with a lot of protection and affirmative action. Ethnic minorities did not had to comply with the one-child policy, and are also given extra scores for the college entrance exams. Their population size has also increased significantly (what kind of atrocities causes population increases??). But something that is often not talked about also is the spread of radical wahibism in Xinjiang, for years, China did not try to integrate them into Chinese societies, leaving them alone because historically, Uighurs were nomadic. But the rise of radical islam in Xinjiang has caused the Chinese government to rethink the need for integration. I beg you to visit for yourself and talk to people on the ground! You might be surprised. I am not a China apologist, but I do believe some balance and nuance is needed. Much information is lacking in this presentation.

    • You sound exactly like the CCP.

    • Oh no, you are an apologist. Your argument is "the chinese party is actually very kind" without any proof ? This video provides some evidence towards their claims. You don't. The chinese government knows how much people are in China. We don't. If they want to say their population is rising, they can but we can't verify that. You can very much lie to protect yourself while genociding an ethnic group. In fact, every nation that has done a genocide in the past lied about it in the past and many still do today. None of your arguments are even remotely close to being convincing.
