I liked the one where he was saying that in the US, police shoot people in the streets on false pretexts. Like, if only they'd drop the pretext, it would be fine...

On one level, yes, it's ridiculous, but at the same time, it's unfortunate that the US collectively no longer gives a shit if foreigners think it's falling below basic standards for human rights - considering the awareness of the world watching and the alternative offered (putatively) by the USSR was one of the spurs to whites to be more open to the civil rights movement in the first place.

Everything he says in that stream is quite correct, though. If Americans don't like being open to that kind of critique from a guy like him, well...
