Watch John Oliver Say Everything You're Thinking About the Paris Attacks (VIDEO)

John Oliver Last Week TonightJohn Oliver isn't one to hold back, and he sure didn't on Last Week Tonight on Sunday when it came to the topic of the heartbreaking Paris attacks. And we love him all the more for saying what so many of us have been thinking!

"It's only been 48 hours, and much is still unknown ... but there are a few things we can say for certain," Oliver begins. He then notes how it helps for him to be on HBO. Why? Because he can freely speak his mind, and that mind contains a lot of non-G-rated words!

"Here is where things stand," Oliver starts. "First, as of now, we know this attack was carried out by gigantic f-----g a------s. Unconscionable, flaming a------s, possibly working with other f-----g a------s, definitely working in service of an ideology of pure a--h--ery."

Then he really gets to the point: "Second, and this goes almost without saying, f--k these a------s!" he says. "F--k them, if I may say, sideways."

You may say, Mr. Oliver!

Watch for yourself (needless to say, it's not safe for work, or for little ears!):

He makes me laugh and then he makes me want to cry.

"Nothing about what these a------s are trying to do is going to work," he says, and I want to stand up and cheer.

"France is going to endure," he says, and I know he is right. The City of Light is not just a beautiful, incredible place -- it's a symbol of all that the enlightened world cherishes: art, music, equality, freedom of expression, love, light. Those ideals can not be stamped out by even the biggest, most frightening f-----g a------s!

My heart breaks for the victims and their families. I am afraid for the future of our world, and even more afraid for the future of my daughter's world. I'm afraid that something like this will happen again in my own city, where we've only recently completed a memorial to the horrific attacks of 9/11. I am afraid, but, as John Oliver so eloquently put it, I do also believe that we, and the light, will endure. While the f-----g a------s will not.
