“If you haven’t watched the news at all this week, congratulations! You probably had a much nicer time than the rest of us.”

“If someone takes a dump on my desk the size of the dump is not the issue. I’m not going to ask, ‘how big of a dump it is, eight inches? Three inches?Oh, just three inches? Oh, that’s almost like you didn’t take a dump on my desk at all!’”

John Oliver, ‘Last Week Tonight’, in response to the wage disparity defence of, women get paid 83 cents to that of a man’s dollar? Why, ‘round it up and it’s practically the same!’ 

I swear to god I’m more American than British, but you know what, that’s a fucking great analogy.

“So there you have it, ladies! If you can just remain single, not accidentally have children, and never turn 44, you’re gonna be golden!”

“If even the Governor can’t distinguish between the good and the bad elements of the community and has decided to punish everyone equally then that should go both ways. I know the police love their ridiculous, unnecessary military equipment, so here’s another patronizing test; let’s take it all away from them and if they could make it through a whole month without killing a single unarmed black man, then, and only then can they get their fucking toys back.”

“The phrase ‘bring it, you f***ing animals’ is barely acceptable during a zoo escape. It’s not even acceptable in the restaurant in Mary Poppins, where penguins are waiters. That kind of statement betrays an inability to see the citizens of Ferguson as individuals, and instead treats them as a threatening whole. And that is a top-down problem.”

—John Oliver during his Last Week Tonight segment on Ferguson, in reference to a police officer’s unacceptable statement. (via thehpalliance)
