Violent Buddhists Target Muslims in Myanmar: The Daily Show

Let’s take a moment and talk
about the Nobel Peace Prize. All right, there’s nothing more
prestigious that you can win. It’s basically like getting an
Oscar for being a good person, -instead ofacting
like a good person. -(laughter) But the Peace Prize has been
on my mind, because recently, Myanmar has been
popping up on our news feeds. All right? It’s a country
of 50 million people situated between India,
China and Thailand, -which means their food is,
like, really good. -(laughter) And… and right now, they’re
having issues with their leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, who is
a Nobel Peace Prize winner. But lately,
there are people who are saying that she should be forced
to give her prize back because, well, there’s no peace. MAN:Disturbing reports emerging
of a new wave of attacks
unleashed by government forces
in Myanmar
on the Rohingya,
a Muslim minority,
considered one of the most
persecuted groups in the world.
Reports of villages surrounded,homes burned to the ground,
torture, executions and rape.
Nearly 150,000 Rohingyahave crossed into Bangladesh
since August 25,
with thousands more
at the border waiting to cross.
Yes, Myanmar’s army is
systematically targeting the country’s minority
Rohingya population, which is a horror
that is beyond belief. What’s even more unbelievable is finding out
who the villains are. FAREED ZAKARIA:
…one of the biggest puzzles
about her nation.Hers is a Buddhist country,which is supposed to be
the most peaceful of religions,
run by this Nobel Prize winner.But it is roundly condemnedfor its systematic persecution
of a minority,
a Muslim minority,
as it happens.
Here’s the puzzle for people.
They look at a Buddhist country, uh, that is yet, you know, persecuting violently
a Muslim minority. Okay, I don’t know
about you guys, but this (bleep)
is mind-blowing, right? ‘Cause I didn’t even know
that Buddhistscouldbe violent. Like, this goes
against everything I thought I knew
about Buddhism. Violence is
the complete opposite of what Buddhists
are supposed to do, you know? Like, what’s next, we’re gonna
find out that the Kardashians are secretly Amish? Like, what are we gonna…
You know? Just like, “Oh, my God,
mijn vader
was threatening “to cancel myrumspringa.“Hand me a pencil.
I’m gonna draw a selfie. Mmm… mmm…” Seriously, “violent Buddhists”
blows my mind. Like, did I have the wrong idea
just because, like, Buddha is so chubby and cute and… No, he’s, like,
the Pillsbury Doughboy of major religious figures,
you know? And you know, and you know,
Buddhists would be the most annoying people
to persecute you. Because, can you imagine while
you’re losing your (bleep), the Buddhist who’s, like,
burning down your house will be calm as (bleep),
you’ll be like, “Hey, man, you burned down my house!” He’ll be like, “You cannot burn
that which doesn’t exist.” “Are you (bleep) me? Everything
I own was inside that house!” “It’s clear that
you did not possess the items, the items possessed you.” “Yeah, I guess
you’re right, man.” Now, already, the idea
of a violent Buddhist is such a mind (bleep). What’s just as twisted
is a Peace Prize winner in a position of power
watching the violence and going: Shrug emoji. Do you ever worry
that you will be remembered as the champion of human rights
who failed to stand up to ethnic cleansing
in her own country? No, because I don’t think there’s ethnic cleansing
going on. I think “ethnic cleansing”
is too strong an expression to use for what’s happening. Oh, okay,
I’m gonna stop you right there. I feel like you’ve already lost
the argument when you’re saying, “Hey, we haven’t killed
enough people yet “for it to be called
‘ethnic cleansing.’ “Yeah, think of this as more
of a light ethnic dusting. Come on, huh? Yeah.” Now, now, here’s the thing,
Myanmar is the kind of country where– it’s
not like America, right? It’s the kind of country
where the president doesn’t control the military. So Suu Kyi,
some people would say there’s nothing
she can really do about this. But a leader with this kind
of moral standing, you know, I think New York
subway rules should apply. If you see something,
say something. -(laughter)
-Right? That should be the rule. -Oh, and if you…
and if you do, -(applause) yeah, see something,
say something. And I will add this in. If you do say something, try
not to sound like Donald Trump. I think this is due to fear
on both sides. And this is what the world needs
to understand– that the fear is not just
on the side of the Muslims, but on the side
of the Buddhists as well. You would accept the view
that the vast majority of the victims of the violence
have been Muslims. There is evidence
that they have been -systematically targeted.
-Yes, uh, Muslims have been… M-Muslims have been targeted,
but also, Buddhists have been, uh, subjected to violence. But there’s fear on both sides. Did you hear that? She just both-sided
ethnic cleansing. I bet Trump
was watching that like, “This woman is disgusting.” “Because of her views?” “No, she stole my lines! She should no longer be
president of Marshmallows.” “You mean Myanmar?” “That one.” Like, I don’t know, I… Look, I’m not
gonna solve anything. I’m not gonna solve Myanmar. I’ve only got 22 minutes
on this show. 5:40. Done.
Uh, I do know this, though. Maybe we need to change
who gets the Nobel Peace Prize, and when. Because so many people
have won the prize, and they’ve benefitted
from all of its prestige, and they’ve gone on
tonotbe peaceful. Like, maybe we should only give
the Nobel Peace Prize to people
after their career is over and they’ve passed away, right?
It’s at the end. We can call it
the “Rest in Peace Prize.” Then we know
you’re not gonna surprise us. You’re not gonna hurt anyone. Unless someone trips
on your grave. But that’s not your fault. Like, otherwise,
if you hand the Peace Prize out like it’s the Best New Artist
Award at the Grammy’s, you shouldn’t be shocked
if someday you end up with a Genocide Milli Vanilli.


  1. Hi your analysis is very good. But you didn't show why that was started? Show the cause. And specially if it was from other side, did you report that? And about religious discrimination, are you a Buddhaphobe?

  2. Buddhism is not a religion it is a way of life of love and compassion. These are lost people who are born as “Buddhist” but not practicing the way of Buddhism

  3. Budha people are very Soft Behaviour People's in the Words but Jihadi People targeted them so in last they take such action to save there Countries and Community.

  4. If u guts expose step dads cruelty on their step daughters in USA and UK… U may shout ur all receptors and do ice bucket challenge

  5. Actually aang sui kii is not doing anything wrong its basically people reaction because rohingyas want separate nation like they do anywhere else and they are involved in terrorist activities.

  6. Word 'violent' is for Bhudhist, 'metally deranged' is for whites; and everyone knows what 'words' would've been used by
    'The Daily Show with Trevor Noah', had they were reportinga about Muslims.

  7. Violent Buddhist ??? Are you fucking kidding me??? Rohingyas are spreading communal violence all over Myanmar that's why they have been kicking out of the country. They are threat to national security where they go

  8. Whe ever Buddhist tries to survive it is targeting but if Muslim does it is good fuck u this channel is terrorist channel

  9. When the Muslims are being oppressed, it's international new. But when the Muslims oppressed other religious minority, no one even talks about it……. Why?

  10. I saw her in an documentary once and SHE is quite extraordinary and she said something that has stayed with me as sound advice: "Never be afraid to face what needs to be done" when responding to how she has managed ..LET HER ALONE YOU DONT KNOW ANYTHING GOING ON IN HER SHOES. BIG MOUTH TREVOR DONT LET THEM WHITE FOLK AND OTHER FOOLS HAVE YOU LOOKING LIKE JUST AN ASS OUT HERE 4CHRISTS SAKE ;|

  11. Anyone who takes action against one community automatically becomes "violent" as per your title,have you ever given a thought who really violent is?

  12. The Buddhist are doing right …. they are just telling rohingya muslim that… if you try to establish gulaame mustafa in our country, you will be punished badly so that you don't even think about spreading islam…

  13. Stop attacking her…… South asian countries are having a hard time…. Economy hegemony education "over population" sooo many……. We are in crisis….

  14. As a resident of USA I know here is big and big propagandas going on. The Trevor Noah , you should mention how is this all started. Rohingya muslims killed Hindus and this is the reaction of that killings. This is sad how this new generations of liberals is destroying this great country. They are anti Semitic, extremists sympathizers, portraying all white peoples racist. Hope true Americans recognize this.

  15. Yeah Rohingya Salvation Army trained by Pakistan (world's first ISIS Country) is from 90 is a mith… And as per Quran 4:89 killing kafirs won't allows anyone to get 72 jucy vergins for sex in heaven…and this video is not targeted to core values of Buddhism.

  16. Trever you bleady swine i donot represent Nither Myanmar nor USA but read this comment carefully you better collect data more to comment on some Country…you donot have any idea what has happened in that country for past 2or 3 decades by these so called you better do your homework more sciencerly…God bless you 🙏

  17. Aung San Suu Kyi is heroine. First time buddhist country Myanmar protect themself and didn't let them kill by Royinga terrorists. MSM and the clown Trevor Noah have no idea about the royingas terrorists sponsored by Saudi.

  18. BUDDHISTS AND JAINS ARE EVEN BETTER THAN HINDUS in terms of faith matters! just saying! BETWEEN THIS IS COMING FROM A INDIAN HINDU. Buddhists can never attack anyone, but they should also have the right to defend themselves if they are under any danger. They are peaceful to peaceful people.

  19. What the hell is going on with the consistent genocide of any group of people? None of it is Godly or Enlightening. It's evil point blank no matter how you put it.

  20. I dont know why everything has to do with people's religion. There are bad people in every society. You are sitting in front of a camera judging a religion, don't you feel ashamed.

  21. Everyone has a limit of tolerance..I think Buddhist tolerance has exhausted due to extreme radical militarised cult Islam who doesn't know the definition of assimilation into the culture of their host country..they just want to be dominant..

  22. I hope you make video ethnic cleansing of hindu in Pakistani and Bangladesh.
    Where are Pakistani hindu
    Where are Bangladesh hindu
    Force to change there religious

  23. we Bangladeshis feeding this vast rohyngas who are about 2 million rohingyas still now……..UN supposed to solve the problem….but still , they are just enjoying the show

  24. Where goes the cliché, 'Terrorism doesn't have a religion?' Seems only a couple of religions and countries patented that cliché. They terrorise, they invade they push the boundaries and expect the victims to tolerate and get butchered, coz their religion is based on non-violence. Only a citizen from western countries who stirred all violence are shameless enough to preach and make fun of such critical issues.

  25. America need to thank god for Trump ..because he is not going to let america become like sweden or kashmir …where muslims comes in minorty and becomes majority and starts the ethinc clensing of other religions …make as much fun you want of trump ..but he is the one saving you

  26. First of all Thank you for the country of Bangladesh 🇧🇩 May ALLOH SWT always give the country a peaceful and joy
    Second thought thank you for you Trevor Noah for bring this issues to the world with your Daily Show,since not to many capitalism country like USA 🇺🇸 bring sensitive issues about Muslim peoples
    Last but not least thank you for all support you guys show on the comments and I believed it’s not only Muslims people who show the support but from all of religions who showing us if NOT ANY SINGLE RELIGIONS IN THIS WORLD WHO TEACH A BAD THINK it’s just only some people’s who thinking they’re religions is more better than any others religions…for me as a Muslim ISLAM is my right choice as my religions but it’s doesn’t means I will or have to make others people believed what I believed just respect what’s they believe and respect what I believe,without harm each other’s…may ALLOH SWT always give rohingya peoples a power to through all of this think and Buddhist people realize what they done it’s wrong despite whatever reasons they have
    Thank you and see you in When I see you 👀 ✌️ out

  27. she has to be hanged because she is just a cruel lady and she never deserve the nobel prize😈👺👺👺she is devil devil and devil

  28. Do your homework Daily Show, these Rohingyas are a clan of thieves, murderers and hired thugs….that is their economy and way of life. Even if you try to educate and help them, they will reject it and will say it goes against their culture.

  29. I feel deeply saddened by the brutal killings of Muslims by these extremist Buddhist in Myanmar . Seriously as a Buddhist , I would say these dictator regime is not Buddhist . But hey , I mean relationship between Buddhists and Muslims have never been good. Buddhism was destroyed by Islam and forced to migrate to Tibet from India 🇮🇳 Muslim leaders killed millions and destroyed nalanda university . So I guess lot of Buddhists seem unbothered by this because of past history .

  30. Heloo Trevor, I from that place u talking about and let me drop a few lines here. In our country, military had ruled over more than 40 years which control all the roots of every political situations until now. She came in power is just in matter of few years ago. Now this kinda situation is messed by the military in order to keep the country unstable. And the Buddhism is just a made up topic for all these problems. She is working very hard to save Myanmar from various pressure including internal issues. I hope u might be able to guess my point. Please don't get wrong about her.

  31. These people are not Buddhist. The requirements for being an authentic Buddhist is very high. The requirements for claiming you are a Buddhist is to have a mouth.


  33. Bush the Buddhist killed people in Iraq on the name of chemical weapons which he didn't found and killed many in Afghanistan on the name of Osama who was well settled in Pakistan and people got killed In Afghanistan😂

  34. "If you see something say something" why not do something ?
    Dont talk only but go take all rohingya refugee to US and you will understand what happened in myanmar.

  35. This is BS.Buddhism is a religion is of peace.Rohyngiya's are fighting among themselves and blaming the Buddhists for this.Listen folks this Radical Islamic Terror.Hillary Clinton Won't say this nor Ex- president Obama.But I have the guts of calling this a textbook example of RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM"
