Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO) - Israel-Hamas War
John Oliver discusses the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas.
And here's a "bootleg" version of the show which includes announcement of recent news events including: Big wins for Democrats on Tuesday; Ohio enshrines abortion in its State Constitution; John's reaction to the end of the SAG-AFTRA strike. Most of the show explores the complicated issues surrounding the Israel-Hamas war, ending with a report on the reaction in New Zealand to John's campaign in New Zealand's "Bird of the Century" competition. It won't last long, as usual:
...humor aside, the points and facts raised in this video should be widely considered by all, let alone by those of us here on DU who are locked in a circular debate over these same points.
Even though, as he said, he does have a comedy show. But I agree he was serious about this war.
...but I have just cross-posted this video to General Discussion in the hope of getting more exposure for it, and in the hope of bringng some unity and agreement on certain points Oliver makes to our discussions here at DU.
That too many DUers don't seem to be aware of and have resorted to posting videos in GD. I even discussed this problem with EarlG when he explained he was deciding to replace V&M with 2 video forums on DU.4 - one for cable news and another for liberal contributors. But I hope it helps.
Of course, this week it's New Zealand's "Bird of the Century."
