Alleged Comedian Russell Brand: Fox News is Just Like Charlie Hebdo Terrorists or Something

Posted by on Jan 14, 2015 at 7:59 am

Heroin is just an awful drug.

Russell Brand broadcast a takedown of Fox News broadcaster “Judge Jeanine”, saying that she is promoting “the same energy” and is “equally damaging” as the Paris murderers.

In response to a ferocious attack on Muslim extremists, in which “Judge Jeanine”, a newsreader on Fox News, urged the United States to “bomb them, bomb them, and bomb them again”, Brand said: “It’s the same energy… it’s the same energy of the murders. Judgement, hate, certainty in your own position, condemnation, the language of war.”

Brand’s takedown of the newsreader, real name Jeanine Pirro, was broadcast on YouTube channel The Trews, and he called on “humankind” to “stop fortifying the boundaries and borders between us”.

When Pirro said the only people who could stop further Charlie Hebdo-style attacks were “the Muslims themselves”, Brand also said that the newsreader, who is of Lebanese descent, is “at least a bit African American… doesn’t she recognise the language [of oppression]?”

Now he can say with certaintly Pirro is part black? Put down the crackpipe, brother.

Brand said of Pirro’s rant: “This is obviously hilariously funny, but in another way there’s a toxicity to it because Fox News, as we all know, is owned by Rupert Murdoch… it’s not like he’s a racist granddad where you think: ‘Oh, it’s just granddad, he’s from another time’ – it’s different if your granddad owns a multi-trillion dollar media organisation and has investments in energy companies that will benefit from further military activity abroad, the requires the malignment and hatred of Muslims and Muslim nations and the dehumanisation of Muslims to continue.

The crazy thing is this clown considers himself some sort of pseudo-intellectual. If he wasn’t a “celebrity” he’d be looked at as a crazy person ranting on a street corner. What an imbecile.

And now a public service message:

    I think Judge Jeanine (who actually was a judge) is more of a commentator and interviewer than a “newsreader.”

    Call it the John Lennon Syndrome … if we all just “give peace a chance” we can end all wars, since those people over there aren’t actually bad, they’re just misunderstood.

    Lennon’s murder was terrible but perhaps an inevitable “instant karma” and unfortunate poetic justice, given his philosophy.

    If Russell Brand should divest himself of his armed bodyguards he may someday experience a similar fate — I’ve noticed the biggest proponents of pacifism are too frequently propagators of and surrounded by varying degrees of violence.

    “African American” doesn’t technically have to mean black, though it generally is understood that way. But it still takes a special kind of idiot to hold themselves out as a big thinker while not knowing that Lebanon isn’t in Africa.

    Brand sounds unhinged.

    And hmmm…
    My dear sweet mother hails from Indiana – the child of many generations of Americans who originally came here from France and Switzerland.
    Pops is German, though the child of many generations of Germans who made Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) home.
    Mom and Dad briefly crossed paths while in school at Notre Dame sometime in 1965 and so here I am… definitely an African-American, though I’m about as pale as this website’s background.

    So Mr. Brand I’m wondering, as an African-American why do I not recognize the language of oppression?
