Okay, real talk. I have seen exactly ONE clip of John Oliver using "it's [current year]" as an argument. One. Can someone please tell me why the fuck it's a meme now to spam "CURRENT LEAR lel XD" every time John Oliver is mentioned?
Honestly if you push something hard enough it becomes the norm on 4chan. I guarantee you this 'meme' started off as one dude with a lot of spare time posting it over and fucking over.
TWO THOUSAND AND SIXTEEN
He said it at the high of when internet journos were using it as an arguement in their own articles.
Personally, I'm glad it's now okay to shame people out of relying on CURRENT YEAR
This is what happens to France if they DONT let in refugees acording to le current year man.
Once some stupid shit catches on, /tv/ never lets go of it. What are you talking about?
I still see that Desmond is Rose shit from time to time and that is nearly 10 years old.
I don't get how the "but he never said it!!!!" people can defend themselves. the entire construct at the centre of John Oliver's being is the current year meme. it's all he is, he's just a walking reminder of the current year, with a few jokes tacked on.
a thing that when i say it's a social construct it means it's not real.
I've barely watched any of his shit show but that's basically the punch line of everything
>showing clip of republicans doing something
>*john oliver making a stupid face*
>"wow really america in 2015? This is just like (insert funny exaggeration here)
Cause /pol/ are a bunch of inept idiots that wouldn't understand nuance if it subtly tapped them on the shoulder.
I can only name 2 episodes that have had SJW themed main stories (to my memory)
>Only women are harassed on the Internet
And beyond that most of what he says is perfectly backed up.
Go after Willmore, he is LITERALLY Neo-liberal authoritarian all white men must get gender reassignment surgery level SJW
Oliver isn't the hill you guys wanna die on. Because you're disagreeing with somebody so agreeable. And it's evidenced by the propaganda tier memes.
He literally demanded Europe open its gates to their future rapists by claiming all the rapefugees were just innocent disabled Syrian children. now ethnic Germans have been smashing Muslim restaurants and burning down asylum centres as a result of the mass public gang rapes that are happening in their country.
>wouldn't understand nuance if it subtly tapped them on the shoulder
If Europe bases their decisions on what some American comedian says then that's their problem
I use the meme and I don't even know who he is. Some shit comedian from some shit american show? Who cares. I bet that 50% of the baneposters didn't even watch the whole TDKR movie.
One thing that's gotten lost in this whole current year drama is just how poor the level of comedy writing is in Oliver's material. I've seen some of the best ever parodies of the beats and flow of his shitty, shitty jokes on here and they're always really spot on.
>I mean, yeah, you can put X in Y, if you want you can put Z in Y if you're feeling frisky, but who has EVER, EVER in the history of the planet ever put Z in X??!?!?!?!?!
I've seen some pretty good fake John Oliver jokes here
All you really have to do is take a really hardcore liberal stance and debate something like you have a stick up your ass and you are like 99% there
Also just making up random people to yell at in the upper left corner.
>NO, BILL, YOU WEREN'T ALWAYS A FAN OF BOWIE! I'M NOT LISTENING TO LIFE ON MARS AGAIN, BILL! I JUST WON'T DO IT!
That's a direct quote I assume, right?
Even assuming that's not a hot piece of molten garbage quote mined from the centre of the earth. That's one opinion, that I disagree with. You know he's starting his 50th-ish episode soon right?
This " I don't agree with 100% of the things this guy says, FUCK HIM" mentality is the reason everyone hates you argumentative fucks, and the SJWs.
Are you also
>Anti prisoner reform
>Anti proper sex education
>Against DC statehood
>Pro tax payed for exorbitant football stadiums
Cause I promise you these topics are covered a lot more than fucking mosques.
>audience titters, eager for the jokes to come
>light laughter, knowing glances exchanged
>hearty guffaws throughout audience
"I mean, really."
>tears flow forth from laughter
"What purpose do white people even have?"
>crashing sounds as people collapse in mirth
"Do we need people to copy out the Bible by hand in a monastery anymore? Do we need people to churn butter and work looms?"
>paroxysms of laughter leave dozens dead
"White people today are like paper towels in the Pacific Ocean."
>earthquake triggered by intense comedy, causing mountains to collapse
"I mean, come on."
>moon swings out of orbit due to resonance of hilarity
"It's not even 2015 anymore."
>atoms reverberate so hard that they shuck off electrons. singularity occurs and all matter in universe collapses into black hole. last known image in all of creation is John Oliver, trying and failing to contain his own amusement at his own jokes.
Actually, Justin Trudeau said it first with regards to why he appointed a 50% female candidate.
John Oliver has many, many flaws and personally I find him to be a little retarded ugly man who ejects endless shit from what could be a mouth, but is likely more a symbol for the giant asshole that he is BUT he does bring up issues that don't often get the press they are due, ie mental illness in the states
I'd take him over Fallon or the human Jabba the Hut, James Corden
>trying this hard to defend your dumbass Liberal propagandist overlord
Holy shit you nigger. Your beloved mouth-piece said some blatantly stupid and we're making fun of him for it. Get over it.
>You're actually defending your points
>B-b-but you're supposed to crumble under the social pressure of our faceless fascist internet regime
I'm sure I'm just taking the supposed genocide of the white race too seriously.
I was at a Last Week Tonight taping in the audience around July-ish and I walked past his dressing room and literally watched with my own eyes John Oliver masturbating to a Muslim man that was raping his wife.
>the meme of "It's 2015!", despite not being a DIRECT QUOTE, represents Oliver's overall sentiment that his Liberal ideals are inherently correct because they are popular in a modern venue
>libshits can't seem to grasp this
>libshits accusing ANY OTHER GROUP of being "unable to understand nuance if it subtly tapped them on the shoulder"
You're the one that is completely baffled by the fact that a meme doesn't have to be a direct quote to make sense.
So much for you getting subtly.
because Willmore is black and thus his promotion of the dispossession and cultural humiliation of whites is completely in line with his own ethnic interests.
Oliver on the other hand is white and still pushes this bullshit, whilst at the same time trying to convince other white liberal zombie idiots that they should support it too.
It would at least be bearable if he didn't deliver each bit in exactly the same way and repeat the same jokes over and over again. I don;t think people watch him because they find him funny; they just want someone to pat them on the back for having the "correct" viewpoint.
People having been making these jokes since before Trudeau before elected. It's supposed to be a statement Oliver has made but a reduction of his arguments to their most basic sentiment.
It isn't really a strawman when you consider that he segments called "Why is This still a thing?".
These appeals to progress (being the right side of history, etc.) are very common and sincere.
>It's a Strawman of his position.
John Oliver literally calls his opponents "on the wrong side of history", which is the non-agrument summed up by the "It's 2015!"-meme.
It's not a strawman. He literally uses the "My views are correct because they are modern and popular"-argument, and that's what we're making fun of.
Stay mad, you fucking drone.
>Mmmmmmm, more John Oliver Cum(TM)! Another bowl over here, please!
You are such a mindless corporate drone that it's not even funny. Your ideology is basically a religion at this point.
It's not an appeal to progress, just because progress will happen, if what's propositioned happens.
The " why is this still a thing" segment is used to highlight absurdities. Not push an agenda.
Are you a big Ayn Rand fan?
Is day lights savings time too racially charged of a topic for you?
If you knew the topic you spoke about, you'd know that the why is this still a thing segment is like the opposite from race baiting, it's literally just silly thing, that I can't imagine anybody disagreeing with.
>it's literally just silly thing, that I can't imagine anybody disagreeing with.
because progressives physically cannot process or conceive of why anybody (in 2015 no less) would ever have a different opinion to them
You know what's never actually in these threads?
John Oliver clips.
Why not? They're all on YouTube. Let's post them and laugh at them. Or better yet criticize his arguments. I'll start.
don't you people ever tire of using the /pol/ boogeyman towards everyone that disagrees with you politically? especially since you think that ''if I call them /pol/ then I can just discard everything they say''.
None of the perpetrators were refugees
Thank God for people like Angela Merkel keeping unsympathetic racists in line
I gotta be honest F@M, that makes it worse. Millions are refugees are pooring into Europe, and here's a group that is on the other side of the process of integrating into society. It's not pretty.
you anti-white pieces of jewish filth make me want to WRETCH
>That'll show those fucking shitskin loving SJWs. Enjoy getting cucked by Muhammad's rape child with your daughter
See why arguing with you people is frustrating? It's a giant game of find the goalpost.
What the fuck does how funny he is have to do with the price of tea in China?
>The " why is this still a thing" segment is used to highlight absurdities. Not push an agenda.
Do you really not understand how the former can be used to do the latter? Making things you oppose look absurd could certainly help to push an agenda. In these arguments, what makes these things absurd is that the belong to a former time of ignorance and have no place in the present. It is exactly an appeal to progress.
>Are you a big Ayn Rand fan?
I have no fondness for her, but I really wasn't impressed by the show's take down. One the major grievances with her was her racism, which makes any reverence for her in the present absurd.
>Is day lights savings time too racially charged of a topic for you?
But Columbus Day and Cultural appropriation certainly are.
Kill yourself John. My brother has put me through half the episodes of your trite garbage and most include:
>IT'S XXXX COME ON
>I CAN'T BELIEVE IN THE YEAR OF XXXX
>BY GOLLY XXXX AND Y IS STILL HAPPENING
At least one per episode. Fucking pleb shit and OP you should consider ending it
>for the good of the species
>The " why is this still a thing" segment is used to highlight absurdities. Not push an agenda.
I really can't imagine being this brainwashed.
>I have seen exactly ONE clip of John Oliver using "it's [current year]" as an argument
At least he has said it, unlike the Vinceposting meme when Vince Vaugh says "Caspere knew this". He never said that at all.
1. I see what you're saying. But I don't think it warrants that kind of digging. Nothing he's done in that segment is racially charged, or hits any real SJW talking points.
2)I'm not a big Ayn Rand fan either. Rush did Anthem better.
3) Fair enough. I would argue actual atrocities happened associated with Columbus Day. But certainly I can agree cultural appropriation is both an SJW talking point and bullshit.
But it goes back to what I said about disagreeing with somebody a little bit is suddenly the worst thing in the world. >>64926740
If you spend your life in an echo chamber youre never going to equip yourself to tackle bad arguments like those used to support cultural appropriation.
And I think echo chambers are the problem on both the left and right side. And a symptom of that echo chamber on the right. Is the "It's CURRENT YEAR" propamemeda
Wilmore killed his own show, so there is no point. He literally had a fat acceptance blogger trying to defend obesity as a disability while sitting next to a crippled, wheelchair bound women.
I remember when British people used to be actually funny
>He literally had a fat acceptance blogger trying to defend obesity as a disability while sitting next to a crippled, wheelchair bound women.
Is this on YouTube?
are you LITERALLY
are you LITERALLY doing this right now
like you're HONESTLY coming here
you're SERIOUSLY doing this right now?
i mean REALLY?
i can't even
are you LITERALLY
asking me to evidence a claim
i mean it's like
no joke, it's LITERALLY
twenty sixteen right now
i can't even
That's not what that word means, cuck
I saw an old (years) episode of Mock the Week a while ago. John Oliver was on it. One of the other comedians made a joke based on a German stereotype (being authoritarian, I think), and Oliver actually called him on it being racist. Comedian with no sense of humour.
He stated the current once during a talk show, and it wasn't as an argument
I'm paraphrasing, but
>Interviewer: "Why aren't you interested in Donald Trump?"
>JO:"Because the election is in 2016, and it's 2015 right now."
You forgot his bullshit stance on refugees and how if we don't let millions of people swarm from a third-world shithole into our countries, we're racists/bigots/whatever. His whole argument hinged on cherrypicking one refugee who happened to be a kind, skilled woman.
Meanwhile the overwhelming majority of them are unskilled, useless, refuse to integrate, breed like rats, and are young, able-bodied men that should be taking up arms against their oppressors; not bringing their shitty culture that turned their country into a dystopian shithole. These are people that hate western civilization and would push for us to become caliphate the day they become the majority.
Fuck Muslim refugees and fuck John Oliver.
I wish you people would stop throwing the word "cuck" around, as if it were an argument. You just sound like a fucking idiot.
