John Oliver on Truth v Trump

You have to watch this - it's gold. 

The last minute or two is especially cute, but you won't get it unless you see the context of it during the rest of the video.

Humorous but very very frightening. Bannon and Drumph are following the Nazi manifesto to the letter, find a race, people or religion and demonise them by blaming all the worlds ills on them and only we can save you....of course when nothing ever happens the country has been saved.

More fake news from Trump yesterday: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/video/2017/feb/19/trump-cites-non-existent-sweden-terror-attack-video

Anon 7.24 Well he is accidentally right..no not that right, I mean the other right. Three suspected neo-Nazis were arrested in January after a Gothenburg Asylum centre became the target of a homemade bomb attack, leaving one person seriously injured.

Security services said all three suspects had previously been members of the Nordic Resistance Movement (NMR), a group that openly promotes racist and anti-Semitic views and has vocally opposed non-white immigration to the country.

As I said previously two narratives going on here VP Pence doing a very statesman like job in Munich doing what the the President should be doing while the President is in an aircraft hanger in Florida lying his man tits off....and getting his rocks off on the adulation and applause...Florida police crowd size 9000, Trump and Alt right...fucking millions.

The Godless Western elites are in panic mode and this crude propaganda masquerading as comedy, though it isn't remotely funny is a symptom

David said...

So Andrei, tell us where we will end up when we worship your Goddy Eastern Inferiors.

Oh, don't bother, we've already seen the results in Syria, Ukraine, USA, and just avoided in Moldova.

Good laugh.
Seriously though time for "Identifying fake news" to be a school curriculum subject.

Andrei and Paul scott with exactly the comment and wording.
Taking a leaf out of Trumps book?

Time to send 'NIck' over to the 'Daily Bog' or some similar regressive idiot blog.

Andrei, the bloke who got kicked off his own blog for being a Russian nationalist fascist and denying the WW2 massacre of Poles. How could anyone take him seriously when he is too far right for Lucia Maria?

Give young Johnnie a gown, crook, and an embroidered hat and you have the shiny new self appointed religious order bashing out the new narrative to the electronic peasantry. Such a switch off in our house, this guys rants...... hes almost climbing over the news desk to emphasis some of the funny bits (not!). This is sweaty desperation flowing like a river!

Seriously who is John Oliver.

I hear his name about trivia but have neither seen or heard of him.

I assume he is either an Australian or American comedian ?

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Poor Legbut, resident trader in fake news.

What ever brains he once had have long gone as his head has slowly exploded.

Trump was absolutely right about Sweden. Perhaps Legbut could quote what he actually said and he will see Trump was spot on.

Here are the latest figures on sexual crimes from Sweden - released yesterday. A dramatic increase, coinciding with Sweden's admission of thousands of unvetted Muslim men.

The number of rapes reported in Sweden increased by 13 percent in 2016 to 6,560.
***
According to Brå’s figures, 10,500 incidents of sexual molestation were reported in the country in 2016 – a striking increase of 20 percent on 2015 (when 8,840 were reported).

He should send his daughters there to live.

Psycho Milt said...

Yes, let's quote what he actually said:

you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden...

What had in fact happened last night in Sweden was "nothing out of the ordinary," hence the outpouring of derision.

There seems to be a useful-idiots campaign to spin it as just a general comment on issues Sweden is having due to accepting refugees, but that interpretation runs into the problem that Trump is presenting crime as rising astronomically in the USA, which accepts few refugees. Admittedly, he's lying about that, as with all the other claims he makes, but the contradiction is there just the same.

This is pathetic - out of a 90 minute speech a partial sentence has been extracted and given great scrutiny - I'll bet not one of you who are going on about this listened to that speech in its entirety or know what was said - you have been led by the nose like pigs to the slaughter by people who are manipulating you

- Donald Trump is an upstart who has upended the establishment candidate and taken a role the in people had taken for granted would belong to their ghastly candidate

It is actually quite enjoyable watching you airheads spin out over trivia you would not even notice if the establishment had maintained its hold on the White House

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Sorry Milt but I'm afraid that is utter bullshit.

The anti-Trump media invented the phrase 'terrorist attack last night in Sweden' and falsely attributed it to Trump.

No wonder he kicks their arses until their nose bleed. And long may he continue so to do.

David said...

You look at what's happening in Germany, you look at what's happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this. Sweden.

Those, Adolf, are the words of Putin's US puppet.

Adolf, you get caught with your pants down so often lately its a wonder you're not a catholic priest. :-)

More inconvenient facts for Adolf

Since 2005, the number of reported offences has increased by approximately 202,000 (+16%). Since 1975, the trend in the total number of reported offences has been characterised by a continuous increase. However, the average rate of increase, i.e. the percentage change year on year, has not been as strong since the end of the 1990s.

When did the refugees begin arriving? Around the time that the reported increase in crime slowed.

https://www.bra.se/bra/bra-in-english/home/crime-and-statistics/crime-statistics/reported-offences.html

In the Swedish Crime Survey (NTU – Nationella trygghetsundersökningen), 1.0 per cent of the population (16 – 79 years of age), corresponding to approximately 76,000 persons, state that they had been exposed to sex offences. This is a decline as compared with 2013, when 1.3 per cent stated that they had been exposed. The level of sex offences remained relatively stable during the period 2005 – 2011, but the result for the past two years shows an increased level. However, the decline shown in the most recent measurement renders it difficult to analyse the trend.

The usual cherry picking by Adolf, a one year blip is not a trend.

https://www.bra.se/bra/bra-in-english/home/crime-and-statistics/rape-and-sex-offences.html

The increase in the number of conviction decisions in respect of rape during the period (2006 – 2008) can in part be explained by the new sex offence legislation which entered into force on 1 April 2005. The statutory change entails, among other things, an expansion of the provision regarding rape, and thus a number of acts which were previously categorised as sexual exploitation were deemed rape. The new legislation also added a separate provision for rape of a child (section 4), and these acts were previously included in the offences of rape and sexual exploitation of a minor. Taken as a whole, these changes make it difficult to compare the number of rape convictions over time.

Now, I expect Adolf will ignore all of the above and resort to his usual ad hom. These snippets are from the same source Adolt quoted, but unlike Adolf, I have provided links so all may see for themselves.

Andrei said...

I don't see the words "Terrorist" or "Attack" in that sentence David or in the paragraph it is taken from either

And this has nothing to do with Russia or Vladimir Putin - it is all pure American pathology

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Poor incoherent David. He knows not what he is doing, apart from losing.

Psycho Milt said...

The anti-Trump media invented the phrase 'terrorist attack last night in Sweden' and falsely attributed it to Trump.

So, if the obvious inference, a terrorist attack, wasn't correct, what was this mysterious event the previous night in Sweden that Trump was asking his audience to consider?

We have a leader of a country with some of the world's most powerful intelligence-gathering agencies regurgitating bullshit he saw on Fox News as though he were some blowhard down the pub and not the President of the United States of America. If you think the media shouldn't be having a field day with that, think gain.

David said...

You are right, Andrei, you don't see the words "Terrorist" or "Attack" in that sentence because that is the way Trump speaks. He uses bursts of noun phrases, self-interruptions, sudden departures from the theme, flashes of memory, odd side remarks. It's the disordered language of a person with a concentration problem.

Trump speaks in a way that allows the audience to "fill in the blanks", but he hands out heavy hints as to what those blanks need to be filled with.

Perhaps, Andrei, you could enlighten us to what Trump meant when he said "last night in Sweden". Did someone successfully assemble an Ikea wall unit without an Allen key? Did ABBA reform? Or was he hinting at a terror attack? I know which one my money's on.

Lets accept that he was really focused on regurgitating his favourite news channel story.

"Lets accept that he was really focused on regurgitating his favourite news channel story."

No let's accept the Western world is committing suicide and the elites who are leading the charge to the extinction of the West will blame Russia for the problems that they themselves have created to try and save their sorry hides from the righteous anger of the people they were elected to protect

David said...

Who are the elites, and what makes them elite? That they know things you don't? That about sums it up.

Who do you consider elite? Jonas Salk or Jenny McCarthy?

Ken Ham or Neil deGrasse-Tyson?

Donald Trump or just about anyone who can string together a coherent sentence?

Its a strange concept, I know, but those you deride as elites are the people who have made the modern world a better place.

Should Air NZ sack all the elitist pilots and employ a few clerks?

Maybe elitists like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, John Key, should all just go away and leave the running of the world to used car salesmen, insurance agents and barbers.

The fact free, homeless, yapping chihuahua AKA Adolph troll has been reading The Putin Times again.

Swedish Crime figures 2016.... http://www.factcheck.org/2017/02/trump-exaggerates-swedish-crime/

There was a big jump in rape figures because the Swedes changed the law to include penetration while asleep or stupefied with drink or drugs. Ask Julian Assange how that one pans out.

What annoys me is that our resident Russians and fellow travellers think that we are incapable of researching some of these ludicrous claims....this might be true of the residents of Nebraska or Siberia, but not New Zealand.

Andrei for example cant answer the simple question about whether Putin and Trump are apart of the new elite or just good old fashioned capitalist running dogs. (apologies to Mao).

No, Egbut, Adolf's daily read is The Murdoch Monitor.

Earlier today I posted a lengthy rebuttal of Adolf's Trump worshiping statistics, using the same source Adolf cherry piddled from. post vanished in under 30 minutes. Full of links and citations, but exposing the lies.

But there were incidents over the weekend in Sweden.
They happen daily.

Anonymous said...

With what little news I have gleaned and over looking the alt right nonsense about Sweden in flames and huge riots causing terror in Stockholm, it seems the police arrested a drug dealer outside a railway station and 15 of his mates took exception and local youth jumped on the band wagon to get some free stuff. It happened in small area called Rinksby. There is no indication that it had any religious aspect and it is to early to say whether there migrants or Swedes involved although experience shows that if drugs are involved it crosses all social divides....think of London a few years ago.

We here in Sweden are all having a good laugh at the expense of all the right-wing blowhards who are imagining some sort of terrifying third-world ghetto, thanks to Trumps nonsense.

I put it down to envy of the excellent standard of living, generous social welfare provisions (for roughly the same amount of tax I was paying in NZ in a high-end position) and general lack of understanding of the extremely low impact of 2015-16s influx of refugees.

But please continue your fantasies, Adolf et al. If anyone has any actual questions about what life is really like over here, ask away.

I was in Malmo the other Sunday.
I only saw the town centre and I accept there was no trouble but there were some dodgy looking migrants hanging around the railway station.
But I did not venture into the suburbs.

Stupid Ivan....stop putting crap from alt right sites on this blog. The chances of you being in Malmo are the same as Scott driving in CHC.
