John Oliver has become a very dangerous propagandist. He just devoted an entire show to anti-Russian demonization. And yet he never got around to military affairs, the provocations of NATO, undermining governments and directly attacking Russia’s allies. That makes his entire effort pure propaganda, pure distraction, dishonest at the core.
While Trump may be a terrible person, his desire for better relations with Russia is a good thing. The Democrat/Industrial/Entertainment complex will not allow it, putting them on the side of the neocon warmongers. Instead of welcoming peace and a de-escalation of tensions, Oliver actually tries to goad Trump into shooting down Russian planes that come near US ships. He uses mockery and sarcasm rather than explicitly saying it, but John Oliver is in agreement with Bill Fucking O’Reilly, while Trump is backed into a corner over a potential act of war against the world’s largest nuclear-armed power.
If Oliver isn’t completely stupid he must be a bit insane. How do you miss noticing the US and Russia brought to the brink of World War 3 throughout 2016?
Hey John Oliver, how about some other viewpoints on your show? Perhaps Oliver Stone for a start?
