4723 Print Friendly and PDF Email this page Comedian Russell Brand on Tuesday blasted Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro for taking a position on bombing Iraq that he said was even “worse” than the militant group ISIS which has taken over a large portion of the country


www.rawstory.com...

Love him or hate him. In my opinion he speaks the truth. Information is a true wepon of mass destruction. The stuff that comes from the likes of Fox News is less than senseless drible aimed at stirring the masses. Piro went on a crazy rant because the president had not ordered air strikes.


Pirro said that her solution to the recent violence Iraq was to “bomb them. Bomb them, keep bombing them, bomb them again, and again.”

“F*cking hell!” Brand exclaimed. “When they do these bombings it creates more insurgents, that’s what creates them. Don’t think of a bomb as going down there and destroying stuff, think of it as like a seed that goes into the ground, and grows insurgents out of it. It creates more terrorism, doing it.”


We do not need any more bombings. Did bombing Iraq in the first place solve any problems. I guess it gave freedom to the million or so Iraqi civilians that died and left a huge power vacume that is being filled now.

We need to lead by example. We need a revolution of heart if we are to stop this cycle of war.




During her rant, Pirro had also labeled ISIS a “fanatical religious terrorist organization.” “So is Fox News — is a fanatical terrorist propagandist organization,” Brand observed. “This isn’t reasonable, is it? Like the way she’s talking? ‘Bomb them! Bomb them!’ She’s worse… She’s the savage, she’s totally espousing savage values.”


The more you look the harder it becomes to discern who the good guys are...

And Russell Brand would be spot on!

I couldn't agree with you more, entire OP.

Happy to be the first to F&S this thread.

You may not find a lot of support for your thread and opinion, but I'm with you (and Brand) 100%. Stirring up crap is FOX's specialty.

There are some people in this world who just need dead. They wont change, you cannot love them into being decent people. They are evil incarnate emulating all that is wrong in the world, and in love with their own evil intents. Proud and happy of their deeds.

The only way to stop them, is to kill them.

Now, that said... I don't trust this administration to be able to tell friend from foe, nor any of the recent administrations. Someone who can tell friend from foe needs to be the ones to make the call...

It is quite possible to only take out your enemies without killing innocent people. It's all a matter of how badly you want to be careful.

I think both big media and ISIL are controlled up the ladder by the same cabal.
Russel Brand speaks in hyperbole, because he's an entertainer, but I do think that a lot of what I've seen from Fox News is fairly similar in root ideology to the ISIL fighters, if you really get down to the core of it. Both speak of the world in terms of religion, with some fairly extreme views in that regard. Both are very anti-libertarian in their core value systems.

This in no way lets off other big media which is just the other side of the same coin, controlled by the same folks who use us as pawns in their games of power. I'm tired of that coin altogether.

I dig Russel Brand, even when I disagree with him. He's an interesting, intelligent fellow.

Fox does press the buttons on the ultra-Progressive cash registers (usually "No Sale"). Shakes 'em up pretty good.

Fox is in fact extreme, but they haven't actually made any military territorial conquests have they?

Russell Brand can be funny sometimes, and here he is in the perfect environment - An echo chamber.

Nice to hear that.. There is enough fantiscism in the world without creating more. I really do not understand what these people are trying to do...


Kind regards

Brand is such a revolutionary. So much so that the elites approve of him. What should that tell you?

I agree with him on a lot of this, but I'm not so swooft to side with somebody that uses the word "terrorist organization" for a group like Fox. It seems to me that a lot of hard liberals these days are coming out with that word against just about anything that is conservative in nature.

It's a dangerous game to play, and it's a dangerous label to put on people. Basically, he, like Hilary Clinton, called people that he doesn't agree with politically "terrorists".

Using that kind of language, he's at least indirectly implying, if not basically outright saying, that many of the religious conservatives that tend to lean towards some of Fox's viewpoints are terrorists or terrorist sympathizers.

Whether I agree with him on the part about bombing being stupid or not, he should be severely censured for using the word "terrorist" to describe Fox.

He's getting people to look at things exactly the way the elites want them looked at. If he wasn't, he would have been silenced by now. In other words, he's not really as revolutionary as he thinks.

TPTB WANT global socialism just like he advocates.

If he was actually over any real targets, they'd be trying to hit back by now.

As crazy and out there as Brand is, he's smart, and usually right. Tough guy to debate, he's like the living version of ATS. Love the fact he uses his celebrity status to cause a ruckus and say what we all are thinking!

I agree.

It seems the Left Wingers are famous for casting blame and false illusions.

Many of which they themselves may be guilty of IMO.

I'm a fan of Russell Brand's comedy but like any other entertainer that starts giving political opinions, they ruin their image in my eyes. Either you're an entertainer or your a pundit.

I guess a good place to start would be with a defintion of what terroirism is. The term itself used widely and in different ways.

The first google search I found for a definition was..


a person, usually a member of a group, who uses or advocates terrorism.

dictionary.reference.com...

Personally I would suggest that wanting to bomb the heck out of a nation that has already been bombed back to the stone age. To be in advocating terrorism.

Iraq has seen enough dead the last killing spree left over a million dead. Mostly women and children. Bombs caused this. How are more bombs going to help.

Yes I would call fundamental Christians terrorists too... Including the likes of George Bush who said something along the lines of God told him to invade Iraq. What the hell this is not the middle ages. The middle east is not a holy crusade. Alarm bells should be ring........

S&F purp... Agreed 100% with you and Russell... We all know what the MSM is like. It is good to see someone with a relatively high profile sticking their hand up and speaking the truth... Maybe it will reach more peeps...? Maybe more peeps will turn their heads and listen. Lets hope so....!

I personally can't stand the man.
Not because I disagree much with what he says, just the way he says it.
Why oh why does he have to speak and present his views as though he has swallowed a dictionary so it comes across like some high faluting waffle to try and make himself look intelligent, when he clearly is anyway?? His presentation of his views come across as very patronising to me.

I don't know, but it's as though he woke one morning and had had a brain transplant. I can't put my finger on it, but something is very fishy about him. Meh, just my opinion of him.

PS I'm with ketsuko on this, it was Brand's interview with Paxman that got my 'spider senses' all fired up.

Personally I try not to judge people on the way they talk. If they use big words or small words. If they speak common or like a snob. These are not things we choose they mostly passed on to us. I judge people on the merit of what they are trying to say. That is what is important.
