Saudi Arabia + Censorship In China | Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj | Netflix

  • Published on Feb 10, 2019
  • On the first new episode of Patriot Act in 2019, Hasan addresses the government of Saudi Arabia's legal demand to take down an episode of the show in that country, and turns his focus to another country with restrictive censorship laws: China. But by using the Internet, Chinese activists are making their voices heard and a determined #MeToo movement may be creating lasting change.

    Indian secular dog criticize Saudi Arabia and that’s a shock. When Indians so-called Muslims blamed Saudi Arabia guided by Quran and Sunnah. 80% Indians are pig Muslims and 20% is the best among Muslims. Take this pig out.

    You’re a great political comic, How many bodyguards do you have ?since obviously you not believe others should be able to conceal carry , I forgive you and respect your opinion..
    why I wrote _ it’s really amazing good editorial news comes from a political comic who happens to be Muslim Which somehow makes America even more upside down , please don’t stop till they are upside down spinning in circles in a jail cell. Gun control is a slippery slope you should interview people like myself who have reason to carry a weapon . I’m disabled living in Miami the moron capital of America

    I wonder if Hasan Minhaj will ever have the balls to do an episode about Israel, or about China's aggressive, relentless pursuit of South China Sea, or about Brexit, or about the Russian annexation of Crimea and their shenanigans in eastern Ukraine.

    Have you tried to ask Saudis in US about their opinion in Saudi government ?
    People outside the Meddle East think that that the Saudi people will like them if they say bad stuff about the Saudi government, the situations that we had gone into as a country were so hard to pass, a lot of invasions attempts from Saddam Hussein and from the south, a lot of wars we got in to near us, a lot we hopefully protected our selves from involving into, a lot of political crisis that turned into a humanitarian disasters like in Syria for example, a lot of threats from Iran and its militias, and not forgetting Isreal that at least 40 years back was a serious threat before more serious threats cames on the ground, these things, and these horrible situations made our government to do things that people in Texas and NY may no like, but we must do them to keep our country "alive" and keep going in our improvement carefully or people may called it slowly, however we are now the biggest country in the Middle East in case of everything, and we have our vision, so we are concern now in approaching what we planned, so if there anything you can do I hope you help us in this, and please don't drive us back by rising problems while you think you are doing comedy.

    Althought China isn't as success at controlling the internet as they think. The vast majority of young internet users know how to use VPNs even if they don't need it, that's not to say that the government isn't trying their damn hardest to stop that too though.

    Let's try a couple of questions regarding the history of the U.S.:
    1. Can you name the longest conflict in U.S. history, second only to the current ongoing Middle East conflict?
    2. What historical event was the U.S. equivalent of China's Tiananmin Square event? (Hint: occurred during the Great Depression.)
    1. The Philippine-American War. The official war started on the heels of the Spanish-American War in 1899, and ended in 1902; however, post-treaty conflict continued until February, 1914, two months before the start of World War I. This meant it tallied 15 years of conflict. Much to the embarrassment of the U.S. government, Mark Twain was part of the vanguard of the Anti-Imperialist movement. If this conflict is mentioned at all in high school history books, it is relegated to a very minor significance, perhaps because the prime target was Filipino Muslims, and it was started in a similar way as the Viet Nam Conflict was started with the faux Gulf of Tonkin affair.
    2. the 1932 "Bonus Army" incident in Washington D.C. More than 43,000 people, including more than 17,000 WWI vets, marched on and camped out in Washington D.C., demanding that their war bonuses be cashed out early so they could feed their families. President Hoover's response was to send in the army under the direction of names such as MacArthur and Patton and with soldiers with names like Eisenhower; armed with tanks and tear gas and machine guns, the vets were routed out of D.C. Admittedly in contrast to the Tiananmin incident, only a few died as a direct consequence and only a few hundred injured, but another important contrast is that in the case of Tiananmin, it was an attempt to overthrow a government, and in D.C. it was an attempt to provide food for their families. So you tell me which response was more justified.

    Can't hear you over the sound of American social media banning more people every month, American networks firing anti-war commentators, and the American government jailing whistleblowers. Oh, and passing anti-BDS laws criminalizing American citizens' speech about Israel. While the NSA reads your Grandma's emails to make sure she's not Taliban. But go on about China, sure.

    It's not a 100% blocked internet by the "incredible" Chinese tech...

    Though most part of the Chinese regular people don't know how, and don't have the interest of use VPN, some Chinese young people use it to surf on the regular internet.

    The real trick was to convince people that they don't need the regular internet.

    Try to do this in USA or France, and you'll see the difference.

    i love that instead of bashing china and chinese people, he humanizes their experiences and tries to give insight into their lives and what they have to go through when it comes to censorship. if it was anybody else, they wouldve just demonized china and equate china as being representative of all chinese people. in short, if it was anybody else, they wouldve just been racist.
