  • well you lost taiwan in the map 1:16. it is part of china which is the fact even you American admit

  • Shameless western media how dare you comment on Chinese government cracking down terrorists in XJ? That is to prevent the terrorist attacks by the terrorists trained by US troops stationed in Afganistan. Why else US troops are there? Bombing the 10 dollar tents? US is doing all the dirty work to bring down China like the trade war, tech war, riots in HK, etc. That's so obvious to the world, exept for the brained washed dummies.

  • i like pie

  • i like voting beans for governor.

  • Speak like you have been to Xinjiang and did your investigations. Those photos were mostly from the footage films of prisons, and all the sudden they give you a view that “oh, that’s the violation of human rights.” How about you go to the prison of the US and take some photos, and another report can describe the similar stories “US government intentionally hold massive amount of people in many minority groups, such as African Americans and Hispanic Latino.” Also go to the warehouses of Amazon, oh, minorities are forced to work with no medical insurance and a few PPE day and night and only get minimum wages were given. Twisting the fact can be easily done with a few misleading photos and “facts” that you have no proof for.

  • 13:57 John, I'm not sure we want to know the answers...

  • 11:07 It's long since been obvious China is an authoritarian nation, but I never thought I'd see something out of China that we would see that would knowingly resemble what is in neighboring North Korea.

  • 4:27 I didn't know they had a thing for Goku's hair in China.

  • In my opinion, it is overdue for John to do a segment on Marjorie Taylor Greene.

  • so what about now huh, very objective Oliver?

  • I think the uighur problems is because we muslim dont heed Albaqarah 2:49

  • Nice to see "someone" investing in terrorism and national hatred again.

  • 17:53 I cried to 😭 Allah please protect our uguyrs brothers and sisters

  • Still waiting for the eyelash story

  • lvcd.info/watch/2MywoZ2mgaRlmZs/video.html

  • ASPI is part of the US Arms lobby and is massively pro-war with china, not the best organisation to cite here. But it's still a pretty fucking horrific that shit like this happens. Just like how the US has a huge issue with killing and locking up Blacks in an unjust way, how Muslims are persecited by Hindus in India, and how Uighurs are persecuted in China, can we all just say that this global wave of fascism is a Plague driven by the interests of those who seek to profit off the poor? Superpowers and corrupt individuals suck. Do all that you can to stand up to these individuals and hold these bastards to account. Fighting this Plague is decent, but thankless. Fuck The CCP, Fuck RepDems, fuck the BJP. Fuck 'em all.

  • Eyelashes? More like cumbrellas!

  • New evidence of genocide in Xinjiang: lvcd.info/watch/u7Zsk6OgpMakf5s/video.html&ab_channel=Barrett Don't know why my comments kept getting deleted by LVcd...........

  • says the country that nuked Japan and bombed civilians in 'terrorist countries'. China is trying to deal with terrorism in a more peaceful manner. Rather than bomb everyone and everything after a terrorist attack, they are trying to prevent it. Save your tears for the original Americans, whose culture and population is almost non existent in America. The Uighur population is growing and their culture is still very much alive. But thank you for your concerns. It's quite admirable how much you care about muslims outside of your country.

    • Almost like this video has nothing to do with America

  • Its actually amazing how many people have actually fallen for this. lol. its weird how these 'abuses' have been happening for 6 years but only in the last year has been labeled as such. honestly its too late to run any kind of smear campaign. only the people in these white countries falling for it. and surprise surprise the world is bigger than that. Its always been amazing how these so called liberals will literally not believe anything trump says apart from things about China. I mean if you are gonna believe him, why not drink bleach? or go take over the government? e/ I didnt have the slightest idea of what was going on apart from what I see on MSM news but like it took literally 30 mins of watching random dudes that's actually there talking to Uighurs to see that all of it is bs. and I mean it makes sense, the US is so scared of China that they just make things up. reminds me of trump saying that biden was on performance enhancing drugs for a debate. lol.

  • Yes John completely fake news

  • Greate Fake News. The fact is so prove that u r wrong.

  • I'm sorry, I thought you were talking about Israel!

  • Yep. There are people denying/defending straight up genocide in the comments. Fun

  • damn fake news 。totally shit

  • this exactly why tibet did not want to be a part of china! The Han chinese have time and again worked towards earasing whats not han chinese. In a country much bigger than India, it only makes sense to have more dicersity than India. But no! they killed thier diversity, and hypocrites in islamic nations like pakistan chose money over human rights. Having ethnic clashes is one thing, but having a sysematic government set up ethnic cleansing camp is whole different level of horrifying.

  • imagine thinking "aggressively secular" is a bad thing. I hate the chinese government just as everyone else, and I know there is a genocide of Uighur muslims going on. But you need to understand what you're saying. Being secular is good.

  • 13K CCP members disliked this video.

    • @Joel Davis Dude, lot's them are actually turkish and claim to be uyghurs on televeision. If you look for hard proof, like official medical records or actual footages of tortures of uyghur population, you actually can't find any. Logically speaking, genocide of such scale on a state that's covered by highly developed internet and transportation network can't possibliy be going off the radar, and so there has be hard proof like actual footages leaking out and become headlines in rest of the world. However, so far, there is none, except for some satelite images that can't really tell schools from prisons.

    • @James Please point out to us uninformed what facts that we need to check. Please feel free to post citations that show that this episode is essentially just a bunch of bullshit.

    • lvcd.info/watch/uJOxk2eQa6mmmX0/video.html

    • And 262K brainwashed idiots who do not know how to fact-check liked this video

  • Using a 2008 clip in 2020? is that all you can do? I witnessed kid thieves on the streets in Shanghai from Xinjiang, used by some adults, like human trafficking in the US. Corporations all over the world knows they are using kid underpaid slaves.

  • As someone who is living in China, I have to say that most of the western coverage on China is biased and not based on reality. They forget to mention how the Uighur population is growing faster than the average Chinese population and how Uighur kids get added credits to their colledge admissions to top Chinese universities simply for being Uighur. And none of these people have ever been to Xinjiang themselves to see what it is actually like in real life. Instead they quote one person's obscured personal opinion and use satelite images as "evidence" when anyone who has ever sat foot into China will immediately recognise that that is no evidence at all. Why is no one talking about the brutal murder of white farmers in South Africa? Oh, that's right, there is no economical or political gain in that. You are not hearing about Xinjiang because western powers think it is inhumane and care about people, they just have their own political agenda and China is a threat to them.

  • I was nearly convinced till I watched the actual full video. I am utterly appalled by evil journalism by the west, in this case BBC. Watch this : lvcd.info/watch/nbOEZYCWbc-VfWg/video.html

  • Yes, all countries ought to have Secular regimes with principles of religious freedoms ! But, also freedoms from religions ! How can we assure that citizens have choosen or not chosen what to believe or not believe ! Early life religious conditioning is problematic because it too frequently distorts and alienates peoples from eachother and can create conflicts among them which does not contribute to social solidarity ! Children ought to be raised with secular humanistic values and when old enough choose to embrace a religion or not ! Societies and parents ought not to have the right to impose antiquated bronze age myths and fables on their vulnerable children !

  • China has passed the usa and is the world leader (people in the usa and europe need to understand this). Can anyone from the usa or europe ask how they treat muslims before we judge. Please continue to fight for human rights but it is like england telling the usa what to do. England has Colonization, the usa has Slaverey, China is going to have this.

  • For the record, the interview where the woman called people robbers and thieves they were talking about the region of XinJiang and not the ethnic group in particular.

  • Yes the cpc is appalling the same as Islam

  • That Volkswagen dude acts like ignorance is an excuse 😒

  • I smell a NORMALIZED GENOCIDE.

  • Re-education camps my ass. More like forced labour camps. They don't need "re-education" y'all need to relearn innocent until proven guilty 😭😢

  • So basically the Chinese treat and think of them like we do black people in america? Wow doesn't look like our over seas counterpart Asians were CAUCasians. So maybe its just genetic to be predjuiced

  • You just described European colonialism in Africa

  • Everyone here really cares about human rights should watch this: lvcd.info/watch/pcKipIuEmcx6hmw/video.html

  • The Japanese government plans to dump the Fukushima waste water into the Pacific Ocean.Moreover, Fukushima nuclear waste water has been accidentally discharged into the ocean many times during the earthquake, which will harm all the Uyghurs

  • This all sounds concerning, but the sources are all quite vague. I get a massive 'WMD in Iraq' feeling from all off this.

  • It’s fake propaganda

  • Lol, you people actually believe this propaganda?

  • The following is what I borrowed from a Malaysian LVcdr’s comment: I’m from Malaysia. China has traded with Malaysia for 2000 years. In those years, they had been the world’s biggest powers many times. Never once they sent troops to take our land. Admiral Zhenghe came to Malacca five times, in gigantic fleets, and a flagship eight times the size of Christopher Columbus’ flagship, Santa Maria. He could have seized Malacca easily, but he did not. In 1511, the Portuguese came. In 1642, the Dutch came. In the 18th century the British came. We were colonised by each, one after another. When China wanted spices from India, they traded with the Indians. When they wanted gems, they traded with the Persian. They didn’t take lands. The only time China expanded beyond their current borders was in Yuan Dynasty, when Genghis and his descendants Ogedei Khan, Guyuk Khan & Kublai Khan concurred China, Mid Asia and Eastern Europe. But Yuan Dynasty, although being based in China, was a part of the Mongolian Empire. Then came the Century of Humiliation. Britain smuggled opium into China to dope the population, a strategy to turn the trade deficit around, after the British could not find enough silver to pay the Qing Dynasty in their tea and porcelain trades. After the opium warehouses were burned down and ports were closed by the Chinese in ordered to curb opium, the British started the Opium War I, which China lost. Hong Kong was forced to be surrendered to the British in a peace talk (Nanjing Treaty). The British owned 90% of the opium market in China, during that time, Queen Victoria was the world’s biggest drug baron. The remaining 10% was owned by American merchants from Boston. Many of Boston’s institutions were built with profit from opium. After 12 years of Nanjing Treaty, the West started getting really really greedy. The British wanted the Qing government: 1. To open the borders of China to allow goods coming in and out freely, and tax free. 2. Make opium legal in China. Insane requests, Qing government said no. The British and French (with supports from the US), started Opium War II with China, which again, China lost. The Anglo-French military raided the Summer Palace, and threatened to burn down the Imperial Palace, the Qing government was forced to pay with ports, free business zones, 300,000 kilograms of silver and Kowloon was taken. Since then, China’s resources flew out freely through these business zones and ports. In the subsequent amendment to the treaties, Chinese people were sold overseas to serve as labor. In 1900, China suffered attacks by the 8-National Alliance (Empire of Japan, Russian Empire, British Empire (including India), France, USA, Germany, Italy, Austria-Hungary). Innocent Chinese civilians in Peking (Beijing now) were murdered, buildings were destroyed & women were raped. The Imperial Palace was raided, and treasures ended up in museums like the British Museum in London and the Louvre in Paris. In late 1930s China was occupied by the Japanese in WWII. Millions of Chinese died during the occupancy. 300,000 Chinese died in Nanjing Massacre alone. Mao brought China together again from the shambles. There were peace and unity for some time. But Mao’s later reign saw sufferings and deaths from famine and power struggles. Then came Deng Xiao Ping and his infamous “black-cat and white-cat” story. His preference in pragmatism than ideologies has transformed China. This thinking allowed China to evolve all the time to adapt to the actual needs in the country, instead of rigidly bounded to ideologies. It also signified the death of Communism in actually practice in China. The current Socialism+Meritocracy+Market Economy model fits the Chinese like gloves, and it propels the uprise of China. Singapore has a similar model, and has been arguably more successful than Hong Kong, because Hong Kong being gateway to China, was riding on the economic boom in China, while Singapore had no one to gain from. In just 30 years, the CPC have moved 800 millions of people out from poverty. The rate of growth is unprecedented in human history. They have built the biggest mobile network, by far the biggest high speed rail network in the world, and they have become a behemoth in infrastructure. They made a fishing village called Shenzhen into the world’s second largest technological centre after the Silicon Valley. They are growing into a technological power house. It has the most elaborate e-commerce and cashless payment system in the world. They have launched exploration to Mars. The Chinese are living a good life and China has become one of the safest countries in the world. The level of patriotism in the country has reached an unprecedented height. For all of the achievements, the West has nothing good to say about it. China suffers from intense anti-China propagandas from the West. Western Media used the keyword “Communist” to instil fear and hatred towards China. Everything China does is negatively reported. They claimed China used slave labor in making iPhones. The truth was, Apple was the most profitable company in the world, it took most of the profit, leave some to Foxconn (a Taiwanese company) and little to the labor. They claimed China was inhuman with one-child policy. At the same time, they accused China of polluting the earth with its huge population. The fact is the Chinese consume just 30% of energy per capita compared to the US. They claimed China underwent ethnic cleansing in Xinjiang. The fact is China has a policy which priorities ethnic minorities. For a long time, the ethnic minorities were allowed to have two children and the majority Han only allowed one. The minorities are allowed a lower score for university intakes. There are 39,000 mosque in China, and 2100 in the US. China has about 3 times more mosque per muslim than the US. When terrorist attacks happened in Xinjiang, China had two choices: 1. Re-educate the Uighur extremists before they turned terrorists. 2. Let them be, after they launch attacks and killed innocent people, bomb their homes. China chose 1 to solve problem from the root and not to do killing. How the US solve terrorism? Fire missiles from battleships, drop bombs from the sky. During the pandemic, When China took extreme measures to lockdown the people, they were accused of being inhuman. When China recovered swiftly because of the extreme measures, they were accused of lying about the actual numbers. When China’s cases became so low that they could provide medical support to other countries, they were accused of politically motivated. Western Media always have reasons to bash China. Just like any country, there are irresponsible individuals from China which do bad and dirty things, but the China government overall has done very well. But I hear this comment over and over by people from the West: I like Chinese people, but the CPC is evil. What they really want is the Chinese to change the government, because the current one is too good. Fortunately China is not a multi-party democratic country, otherwise the opposition party in China will be supported by notorious NGOs (Non-Government Organization) of the USA, like the NED (National Endowment for Democracy), to topple the ruling party. The US and the British couldn’t crack Mainland China, so they work on Hong Kong. Of all the ex-British colonial countries, only the Hong Kongers were offered BNOs by the British. Because the UK would like the Hong Kongers to think they are British citizens, not Chinese. A divide-and-conquer strategy, which they often used in Color Revolutions around the world. They resort to low dirty tricks like detaining Huawei’s CFO & banning Huawei. They raised a silly trade war which benefits no one. Trade deficit always exist between a developing and a developed country. USA is like a luxury car seller who ask a farmer: why am I always buying your vegetables and you haven’t bought any of my cars? When the Chinese were making socks for the world 30 years ago, the world let it be. But when Chinese started to make high technology products, like Huawei and DJI, it caused red-alert. Because when Western and Japanese products are equal to Chinese in technologies, they could never match the Chinese in prices. First world countries want China to continue in making socks. Instead of stepping up themselves, they want to pull China down. The recent movement by the US against China has a very important background. When Libya, Iran, and China decided to ditch the US dollar in oil trades, Gaddafi’s was killed by the US, Iran was being sanctioned by the US, and now it’s China’s turn. The US has been printing money out of nothing. The only reason why the US Dollar is still widely accepted, is because it’s the only currency which oil is allowed to be traded with. The US has an agreement with Saudi that oil must be traded in US dollar ONLY. Without the petrol-dollar status, the US dollars will sink, and America will fall. Therefore anyone trying to disobey this order will be eliminated. China will soon use a gold-backed crypto-currency, the alarms in the White House go off like mad. China’s achievement has been by hard work. Not by looting the world. I have deep sympathy for China for all the suffering, but now I feel happy for them. China is not rising, they are going back to where they belong. Good luck China.

    • Why do so many Chinese copy the same comment, and anyways its wrong as China literally CLAIMS Malaysian islands today so he is lying.

  • The nappy friday trivially occur because pheasant externally push amidst a better viscose. irate, bizarre pencil

  • ...making products that are in front of your face! ...An iPhone? Forcing people into concentration camps...do you mean what Americans call "Reservations"? Wonder where the Chinese got the idea from?

  • 13k mad tankies disliking the video.

    • @Dreigonix I've never met a tanky who wasn't as dishonest as a fascist.

    • Remember, everyone: TANKIES👏 ARE👏 NOT👏 LEFTISTS👏

  • The tart chess sporadically strip because dragon progressively fire modulo a bawdy japan. literate, thinkable uganda

  • lvcd.info/watch/m6yvc2tqo613fqM/video.html watch this, lier!

  • Medias in north America are NOT telling the whole story for political propaganda! They only want to make Chine look evil! 90% Uighur are very happy for their life’s and works after government built massive highway and railway for them, the economy is booming and Uighur people are richer than ever in the history of China!

  • Stick to reporting in your own back yard John, your reporting on Venezuela and Turkmenistan and now china is full of confirmation bias. 1. Footage of uyghurs going to work, are uyghurs not allowed to work now? 2. Underlying problems of terrorism in the xinjiang area, why don't you tell the audience that this was a deliberate effort by the US government to destabilise the area? 3. Half these stories John reports on are from adrian zenz, a crackpot evangelical Christian waiting to be raptured

  • Liars!!!!

  • Never have I been so glad I chose to make my own masks

  • The Cicadas are coming goof for all

  • 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.

    • I literally burst into tears, hearing those words, came out of that childs' mouth.

    • Oof I know it's a meme and that me saying "Oof" may seem insensitive, but it's really the best way to put it. Oof.

    • gutted.

    • That kicked my heart in the grapes so hard I could produce a bitter wine.

  • 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!

    • Yes. School teaches us about the atrocities of the past (residential schools, holocaust and other genocides) in hopes of us learning not to repeat history, but it's completely useless. Honestly f°ck China and anyone who won't speak up.

  • 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.

  • 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

    • @Polar _iced he certainly felt enthusiastic probably from showing that last clip in the video. What lesson will it teach to burn everything to the ground. When we look back at these protests and riots as a whole the picture is not good if that is front and center for the intentions. These retarded liberals and and anarchists will get what the deserve.

    • 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...

  • lvcd.info/watch/zJKumaR1g8ijaX0/video.html

  • 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

  • lvcd.info/watch/nbOEZYCWbc-VfWg/video.html

  • 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.

    • couldn't agree more. They also persecuted Buddhist Tibetans and thousands of Christians who believe in God. What a cruel party.

  • 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?😂
