It’s becoming a Sunday night tradition that John Oliver will lay a British beatdown on an unworthy opponent, and for the second week in a row it was a sports organization that felt his wrath.

Last week Oliver went long and hard at FIFA just in time for the World Cup. This week, in a shorter but just as topical segment, Oliver honed in on Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder and his insistence on maintaining the heritage of his decades-old sports franchise by clinging to its highly offensive name. After a quick recap of the nonsense surrounding Snyder’s stance, Oliver aired a short parody video that correctly grouped Snyder’s logic with some of the worst positions held by anyone anywhere. (Seriously, let’s stop it with the camping propaganda.)
