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.

ijkventure : Looking forward to seeing an episode on the Israeli government.

张哲 : Hi! Hasan, thank you for doing the show. A little explanation on the ban of posting “I’m willing to be a vegetarian for the rest of my life.(信女愿一生吃素)”. It was a line from a Chinese hit TV series featuring the emperor and his concubines. The line was said as a prayer by one of the concubines& main characters on the show hoping that by her being a strict vegan for the rest of her life, the emperor would die as soon as possible. It’s sort of an exchange. So you can see the association here. By people sending out this sentence online, they were actually jokingly praying. Again, a lot of things on this episode you did are precise that even a local Chinese wouldn’t know of. Thx for the work. Btw, I watch your show!:D^

Vinay N.K : This is similar to British people not knowing their colonial atrocities.

jillhbaudhaan : "Do you hear that? That's the sigh of a thousand A-minuses."

Chantal Arko-Dadzie : I think it's amazing that Hasan and his team are bringing up stories that deadass most of us would've never heard of otherwise. Like, thank you. Seriously

Vishal Singh : "Liberals and conservatives, they both embraced me like money from big pharma!" My man keeps it aggressively 💯 and that's why he's the best in the game

Sahar abdul karim : Born and lived in Saudi Arabia and now a medical student in China I guess I will never know hahahahaha

MrPaceTv : Irony is I am watching this in Saudia Arabia on a public ISP.

Demita Naidoo : As a westerner living in China, I can 100% agree that China is soooo good a censorship. It goes unnoticed, even by myself at times. My family usually asks about something that has happened here, and that's when I find out.

Rusat Ramgopal : You know it is a good episode when Hasan's SAT score is higher than the amount of dislikes.

dangerhamster : "I have a cousin whose atheist, he'll be rolling a blunt and drinking but he'll still be like 'hey man is there pepperoni on that pizza" the accuracy - I feel attacked personally haha the accuracy, I'm the same I'll still call myself atheist but offer me bacon I'm like "nah dude, I can't"

RedF0xtail : HOW is there a segment about a blind lawyer escaping arrest and no Daredevil jokes??

Final Sentinel : The boy band manager of 9/11. He just snuck that one in there.

Haricash Ravi : This is is like American kids not knowing they didn't win in Vietnam, or had nothing to do in the middle East

laviler : This show is getting bolder and I live for it.

BurnNotice88 : "A blind lawyer escapes house arrest". Confucius would be proud.

abdulqadir ali : Dude how you planning on making HAJJ?😂😂😂😂

MK Piatkowski : One thing that Hasan didn't touch upon but is relevant here is that the unintended consequence of the one child policy is that most families chose to have boys. Thus, there is a serious gender imbalance in that generation. Combine that with global trends towards less women choosing to marry and have children. China has a serious problem, hence the push to marry girls off and have many babies. The gender imbalance makes things even more dangerous for young women in China. It also puts them in a powerful position as China can't afford to alienate that entire generation. Pretty sure that's why they're making movement on this.

Hal Fox : Love the fake emails at 3:29, especially the one from Marie Kondo XD

Scholarship Guide : Love from Islamabad, Pakistan. #Fan

Alex Augustine : " China is soo good at censorship, they gave themselves 5 stars... "..(shows the flag)...ha ha

Shamanta H Shammi : Hasan please do an episode on Bangladesh's politics being an autocracy. This really needs global attention!

N Corp : This is probably your best episode to date...very informative and different information, thank you. The sexism in China (and Asia) is extremely rampant and gets very little coverage....anywhere. It goes MUCH further than sexual harassment (which is a FAR greater a problem than merely at universities) and reproductive control. In the early 2000's, China and even Japan started implementing intentionally sexist university entrance policies to keep women out of schooling and certain fields of study and access to careers. Women are held to a far higher standard in regards to scoring, testing and communication assessments and interviews to get into universities, and quotas designed to benefit men were put in place to keep women out. The "problem" is, women are surpassing men academically, and they are threatened by it. Globally and historically, the idea that women's priorities would shift and gravitate more towards career and independence from family and husband has ALWAYS been regarded as perhaps the ultimate threat to men. In the East and West, the intention to reduce women to their baby making functions as a means of political control.

BlweLotus : THANK YOU for covering the atrocities that China is committing against its Muslim citizens.

Mujeebul Islam : Try to say a single word on "Israeli crimes". You will know the reality of so called liberty and freedom in America.

chirag ranga : Let's talk about something less controversial CHINA!!

Kalana Herath : Winnie the Pooh is mad lol (Like if you get the reference)

Fadel Rama : China is basicly real life psycho-pass. if you know this series people should be scared

Prakash Mishra : I just feel lucky to be born in India....and all the people who have all sorts of freedom should respect it ...and though everyone deserves it but not everyone has it.

Sanjiv Banerji : Hasan's is a documentary peppered with humor, which makes it informative, powerful and fun. We need more people like him.

Ankit Raj Singh : Oh.... he's gonna have a lot of fun getting visa for haz😌

shahriar niaz : do a show about bangladeshi politics ...u will be surprised...saudi Arabia nd china have brother called bangladesh...u know,what i want to tell

Thinking 18_81 : People in China also use VPN...


Dariya Draganova : Please work on providing subtitles.

Ge` Lena : Great show! I'm a Chinese teacher of economics at an American school in Shanghai. In our AP social science textbooks are also censored and so many topics are not allowed to be discussed.

Aimee : Internet bad boy icon. You’ve reached the pinnacle Hasan!

s f : Do one about Israel next.

meenakshi sundharam : OMG I am binge watching patriot act right now , damn man you are so good ,

Ebrahim Hartley : As a muslim keep doong what you're doing brother

Mr true : Dare to make video on Israeli govt because that is ban in America. Stop doing jobs of white supremacist and be real

Curiosity Culture : His jacket is super legit.

That Won Dude : China has banned the chat

Cooldrop02 : The concept of "Leftover Women" isn't new man. I've been here for about 6 years and the age has increased from 23 to 26.

Fadye Tanveer : I'm watching patriot act from Hong Kong, China

kiran chandran : You have to do this act on Turkey too . Mr. ErDOGan needs some taste of your joke

Yusra Azmi : I actually can't listen to the theme song without hearing Hasan's lyrics.

Roy G Biv : Anyone know where I can find that black bomber jacket Hassan is rocking? What brand or store it’s from?

Faduma F : Hassan Minhaj you’re not entirely correct. One cannot seem to criticize Israel and its problematic influence on America through lobbying without being smeared and fired from your job. Wish Americans could be more honest and stop acting like America is the perfect democracy. At 4:56 he talks about being able to say anything. I dare him to talk about Israel. Would you really be proud of a family member that harms people outside of his household and is an ally with other killers (Israel, Saudi Arabia, etc)?
