      All of you socialist gringos: pls STFU you’ve never lived under a socialist government SOCIALISM DOES NOT FUCKING WORK

    2. mijachin

      Guess John Oliver getting desperate for views that he went wack on this one. His video got massively debunked by Empire Files. Sorry state of affairs when you get to lie John.

      Maduro is now rotten... (Maduro in portuguese is ripe in english)

    6. Josue Sencion

      Venezuela is not the most corrupt country in Latin America, but it sure is the only socialist one.

      i liked her :)

      Cannot overemphasize what a steaming pile of horseshit this propaganda is or how tremendously disappointed with Oliver I've become. Who knew someone who worked his way up on UK class-based satire could so easily be transformed into a grinder monkey for soulless fascists? Mind you, you'd never mistake him for a principled social commentator, like Carlin. This shit just isn't funny when it's no longer based on truth. He's just sad, douchey, aging turd vomitting up pernicious state propaganda for his oligarch snake oil salesmen. Pathetic.

      1. Sweetums

        Văn Thọ nguyễn Thanks for noticing. Yeah, thought it’d be a nice homage to throw a pic of your mom in my profile, you homeless rat fucker. Lamo. I’ll leave the inbreeding to garbage like you, Gomer.

      2. Sweetums

        Yang Fan Yang Fan LOL. Hilarious. The day decent people start taking advice from a POS like you will be the day you’ve lobotomized us all, even that I wouldn’t put past you; we know the type of filth you are. You really do need psychiatric help, goat roper. Get out of your mother’s basement, snap on your rubber helmet, mount your trike and peddle downtown to get some. Heh. What a cretin. Tell us more about how to live our lives, Cletus. This will be fun. Fucking idiot.

      3. Sweetums

        Yang Fan Heh. Nice. What's the price of your soul, sad, pathetic troll? Kinda hypocritical to berate someone with principles when you clearly have none, don't you think? Or do you think at all? To be expected of pathetic trolls. Nope. No self-pity on this end, but then who'd expect some cretin like you to notice. You're delusional, goat roper. You're OK with defending what history will view as war crimes and tyrannical governments, but go after folks who call out bullshit for what it is. Such a sad little bitch. Look at you. Miss me with that "trash" nonsense, Cletus. You don't even have an identity, life or profile avatar. Mine's satirical, of course, but I'm a degreed IT professional & civil rights activist with two children in college. What have you done with your life? More importantly, who've you stepped on or sucked up to, shit breath? And you clearly don't know shit about Carlin. Stop your whining & projecting, snowflake. What an idiot.

    9. Matthew Bailey

      Maybe she should live in that Plantain?

    10. Matthew Bailey

      So, Venezuela is dyning because it is "Socialist," and it is "Socialist" because they say it is? Does that mean "Democracy" is evil because of what has happened in North Korea? After all, it is the "Democratic Republic" of North Korea.

      1. Văn Thọ Nguyễn

        What kind of dictator? Lee Kwam Yew was a dictator. Signapore under him experienced jaw-dropping development and it went from a fishing village in the middle of literal nowhere to one of the richest GDP per capita nation in the world. Idi Amin was also a dictator, and his people suffered tremendously under his rule. Maybe Americans like you should try to purge the decades long propaganda you were fed with since the day one of your enrolling into public school and take reality for what it is? That the world is more nuanced, that you really, really shouldn't use blank terms like "dictatorship" and "democracy" to try to interpret the world? The Federalists had ideals and ideas still applicable today with great merit, but it would be ludicrous to expect them to be completely correct on modern affairs. Also, the federalists would most certainly not in tune with today's "popular democracy" or birthright democracy, the founding fathers of America were very much elitist: black men couldn't vote, women couldn't vote, poor white men couldn't vote. The founding fathers of America were very much aware and wary of the mayhem Democracy is capable of.

      2. Matthew Bailey

        Yang Fan And so a dictator is preferable? Perhaps you should read the Federalist Papers to discover what the Founders of the USA called the US government. Hint: The form of government described by the Founders was a "Majoritarian, Representative, Liberal Democracy." The shortened form is a "Liberal Democracy" in the form of a Republic. I get it, semantics is hard for some people.

      3. Văn Thọ Nguyễn

        Democracy IS EVIL. Naive, clueless Americans. Democracy is majority rule. From ancient Greece to Nazi Germany, democracy displayed its amazing capability for evil.

    11. Alkis Daispyros

      Socialism alone doesn't really work.

    12. Susan Robinson

      I know that this comment is late, but I am still catching up on all the news that I missed from being homeless for a year. John-you made a throwaway comment about Trump renaming Congress Don-gress. I mentioned in passing to a friend that Trump is such a narcissistic asshole, he WOULD rename the United States, "Trumpolis", if he could. I laughed about it, but I bet the bastard would buy a town and rename it for himself if he had the idea, or throw a YUGE "TRUMPERTANTRUM" until he got his way! The big, orange, loud, rude, lying, colluding, disrespectful, cheating, racist, homophobic scumbag. I respect the office of the POTUS. Not the man who currently holds it. Being homeless for a year has not changed that. At. All.

    13. Alexander Marchitelli

      The amount of misinformation in this piece is really making me rethink a lot of what John Oliver has covered in the past...

    14. Raul Duran-Berestov

      Hahahaha I bet there will be evidence of US meddling in Venezuelan affairs

    15. f1KING

      gr-news.com/online/βίντεο-_fV-C1Ag5sI.html this is more like realety

    16. Tom L

      I love Sassy Popeye

    17. Alejandro Chavarria

      John Oliver, could you cover Nicaragua. No one ever covers my country ):

    18. Utkarsh Dave Sahni

      At the 5 minute mark, he showed a clip o Chavez getting on TV and taking control of a private company and firing executives to make a joke out of it. That is literally one of the most egregious examples of property rights violation by an arbitrary fiat and he thinks that it is funny. If that doesn't make you shiver, there is something seriously wrong with you and you ought to go look up this thing called "human rights" and "system of checks and balances".

      1. Utkarsh Dave Sahni

        Yang Fan What do you mean exactly?

      2. Văn Thọ Nguyễn

        It is a joke. Look up the definition. Please tell me you can't detect a hint of irony in the whole situation. Maybe if those UN drafters were less of a bunch of hypocrite things could have gone differently?

      3. Utkarsh Dave Sahni

        Yang Fan well yeah but earlier on he says in a normal tone "took state control of oil companies" and never walks it back. If I was saying that I would instinctively shiver at the thought. Look, I am not saying you have to agree with me but don't give the bullshit that you are "not a socialist". Just be real and admit it so we can have a real conversation.

      4. Văn Thọ Nguyễn

        It's a joke and you know it.

      5. Utkarsh Dave Sahni

        nobody is perfect, but there is a difference between problematic spying of citizens and the executive branch arbitrarily forfeiting property rights

    19. Imported Triggermen

      “Oh no! Me communism! Oi mate, you got a loicense for that failed state?”

    20. Lucas J. H

      Socialism ALWAYS equally distributes misery, everytime, everywhere.

      1. Lucas J. H

        Denmark is the 18th country in the world with most economic freedom. First five are Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zeland, Switszerland and Australia. Last four are Congo, Cuba, Venezuela and North Korea.

      2. Michaelthevagabondpoet

        ...Denmark?...

    21. Brett Zukus

      Pure propaganda for capitalism. Redo please.

      1. Văn Thọ Nguyễn

        Makes you wonder why so many people cheer for capitalism? It's like they have someone pointing a gun at their heads, ye know, like socialism?

    22. WilliamParadise

      Which is worse LELE PONS SUCCESSFUL CAREER or...VENEZUELA ECONOMY

    23. Patrick Gonzalez

      How is it dishonest showing just a tiny bit of the diaster maduro has made of a once rich country!!

    24. Music

      Sassy Popeye is awesome

    25. John Robie

      Socialism is like cocaine. A little feels good, but make no mistake, it's a hard drug. Once you get hooked, then you need more and more to stay level - all while destroying yourself and blaming everyone / everything other than the drug for causing the problems in your life. Maduro isn't the real problem, he's just the dealer. Socialism itself (the drug) is the real problem.

    26. Ant Lefty

      He needs to take his long thumbs and shove them up his ass.

    27. Sad Gurl

      I’m here for sassy Popeye

    28. Enrique Rivera

      Not "poopatov"... They speak Spanish. Shit is mierda. Mierdatov

    29. joseph karl

      How does this guy have a job? He said Trump had no chance.

      1. MrMollusk7

        I never said I supported Hillary, dumbfuck. I said that you tards would have no problem with the legitimacy of the case for the president having committed treason if it was Hillary instead of Trump, as you just proved. "hillary is allowed 20 felonies and Trump is not" en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legal_affairs_of_Donald_Trump The Equal protection clause? In the 14th amendment? The amendment your God Emperor called "questionable"? The one that explicitly sanctions the "anchor babies" you babies hate oh-so-much? gr-news.com/online/βίντεο-_TwG1j22Rdg.html

      2. joseph karl

        MrMollusk7 yes hillary is allowed 20 felonies and Trump is not. It’s right there In the Constitution. “Equal justice Clause.” Keep dogging the hole deeper

      3. MrMollusk7

        Peter Struck investigated Hillary as well, so you toothless monkeys should love him. "No President has EVER been spied on by a previous President except Trump." BAHAHAHAHAHA Do you losers still have your panties in a twist about that time Trump said Obama was spying on him? "Sore Losers bitter crybabies" I never new White House insiders are all Trump supporters.

      4. joseph karl

        MrMollusk7 yeah being investigated by Peter Struck who sent emails that he would not be allowed to win. LoL. No President has EVER been spied on by a previous President except Trump. Sick beyond belief. Banana Republic. The Washington insiders Hate Trump more than anything. Sore Losers bitter crybabies

      5. MrMollusk7

        Seeing as he tanked in the popular and is now being investigated for engaging in treasonous behavior to win the electoral, he never did :^)

    30. G14able

      Currency has no value. Currency crisis is not economic crisis. Yes the cost of a plantain today is more than the cost of a house 30 years ago but the value of a house is still greater than that of a plantain. Those who hold currency as security are dumb or poor.. Venezuela have food shortages which can be fixed. Venezuela is fine.

    31. Sheldon Scipio

      People really look at a comedy show for the news, Wow

    32. John Cook

      Wait. Are rabbits high in protein with no cholesterol? Is that the truth!? Damn. Why are we not eating bunnies!? That is the true travesty.

    33. wcatholic1

      Sounds like the early Weimar Republic.

    34. Bob Smith

      All I got from this is that brown people aren't good at goverment. What would Julius Cesar do with moderen American milatary technology? Lol, fuck hitler, I want the J.C.

    35. Big Raf

      This Moron thinks this is Funny. People in Venezuela are eating their Pets to survive. These Stupid Celebrity Socialists are clueless to the damage they do with their Bullshit.

      1. MrMollusk7

        Imagine being such a fucking retard that you watch a step by step breakdown of why Venezuela's economy is in the shitter, and can only become impotently angry that it blows your "soshulizm" explanation to bits.

    36. r4ym1n13

      This is the clown who said Trump would never become POTUS. John Oliver supports this left wing socialism lunacy. Go fuck yourself idiot

    37. Anonymous Filth

      You talking about Venezuela, do a little Research on Bangladesh , Democracy has been hacked in Bangladesh

    38. Jessica C.

      I think of that "I just want people to have health care, honey" quote all the time, like same

    39. Gin Toni

      Blatantly lying, Mister Oliver! He repeats mainstream media talking points and completely forgets that the US empire is waging an economic war against oil-rich Venezuela, supporting and funding opposition groups and through American Food corporations. Get some help here: gr-news.com/online/βίντεο-_fV-C1Ag5sI.html Seems like the US do exactly what they blame Russia for: Interfere and intervene in other sovereign countries with democratically elected governments! Hands off Venezuela, USAID and US Government!

    40. wink3319

      There are plenty of Socialist Countries that don't look like Venzuela? Like which ones? North Korea? Cuba? These are the Socialist countries...

      1. Craig Barron

        wink3319 those are communist/authoritarian countries dipshit. socialist countries? try the majority of Europe. hell, the US has a great deal of socialist policies that voters don't know are socialist, like Medicare and Social Security.

    41. pash Go

      Dear John, shame on you!!! Get your facts right

    42. Agoraphobic News

      This guy is totally ignorant about the American influence in South Africa. What a disgrace! And this "repoter" who talks about people eating rats in Venezuela...Well, that actually happened in Chiapas, Mexico. What a bunch of propaganda in 20 minutes video!

    43. Jeremy Campbell

      holy crap what a trainwreck the left is. socialism has failed on every level, everytime and your "new" ideas arent actually new its just repackaging what has failed time and time again. the fact that millions of idiots buy into this shit says a lot about higher education and our future.

      1. Jeremy Campbell

        that fact you play video games and know consoles furthers my point about you even more....who the fuck doesnt use a compute but instead sits in their mothers basement all day on a console....you.

      2. MrMollusk7

        +Jeremy Campbell No one the age of my father is pretending to be some shotgun wielding badass like some snot nosed brat on Xbox live. Go back to stormfront or something for a safe space to cry in if you can't address my points like a grown adult.

      3. Jeremy Campbell

        kid? im old enough to be your father. if i am your father lets meet so i can shove a shotgun through your eye socket because you offer society nothing and trying to actually have a conversation, again with a potato is useless... "everyone else did me wrong", " i never did nuffins", "the other side is evil because i say so", "facts, who needs facts, lets just call each other names and when im offended let me pull my victim card out", "help, safe space police help me!!"

      4. MrMollusk7

        "i can cite the only case that matters" You have the intellectual integrity of a toddler. "The United States of America has never been a socialist county" So, you're just admitting you're absolutely incapable of comprehending nuance. "the worlds only super power. checkmate" BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Stay in school, kid.

      5. Jeremy Campbell

        i can cite the only case that matters since this is america....The United States of America has never been a socialist county, never, not once and is the worlds only super power. checkmate, go suck on your pacifier you worthless cum load.

    44. Frankie Fontecchio

      SOCIALISM DOESN'T WORK

    45. Vineeth Mohanmc

      Oliver where is your campaign contribution to Trump?

    46. Arlind Krasniqi

      i wonder if the outcome would be different for the people of venezuela if they had the second amendment at their disposal.

    47. Arlind Krasniqi

      and yet the libtard in the us are all out calling for socialism here. for fox sake.

    48. bunies infernal

      nice to see john back to the whole propagnada thing, the left was getting their asses kicked without it

    49. John Robie

      Everything that is happening in Venezuela is entirely the result of Socialism. Central planning, public ownership, and collectivism did that, not "mismanagement". An ad hominem attack on the Right to defend Socialism is grotesquely dishonest.

      1. MrMollusk7

        Public ownership is not collectivization, which in no way describes why PDVSA took Venezuela down with it. If you stepped outside once in a while, you might realize that every government on the goddamn planet manages public holdings as an absolute necessity to establish something adults call "infastructure". How the fuck does collectivization relate to PDVSA? Did all the workers own their own oil rigs before PDVSA put them on government payroll? Or were they EMPLOYED by a publicly owned company? If you took of the fedora for a second you might be able to understand how bad management of public companies effect the country regardless of political ideology, instead of using your poor understanding of ideological terminology to feel smug about yourself.

      2. John Robie

        Before you overzealously run your mouth, you might want to look up what "public ownership" means, and then look up how Venezuela increasingly nationalized PDVSA. Like I said, what's happening in Venezuela is the entirely predictable outcome of Socialism. Maybe if the apologists took a little time away from their sanctimony to actually learn how this all works, we would have fewer countries imploding and people wouldn't be forced to eat their pets. But you know, free stuff is all that matters, eh Comrade?

      3. MrMollusk7

        "public ownership, and collectivism did that" Right, because their oil reserves were 100% managed by the rig workers and people. You absolute fucking moron.

    50. Erica Wang
