I would vote for Will Feral.

And the point of this thread is how the media reacted to what he said, which is pretty much nothing. They even found few "outraged New Yorkers".


Well then watch "The Campaign"

But to get on topic.

I actually think part of the reason they brought up the whole 9/11 thing was to discredit him with the cliché "here is another crazy conspiracy theorist". Even though Brand pretty much dismisses them as "crazy conspiracies", its still what the media run with.

The question is, why would the media need to discredit him if he's such a joke?

What makes this entertainer's opinion more important than another person's. I would tend to believe in someone who has done in depth investigation with a background and knowledge in related fields used in the investigation.

Famous opinion somehow counts more as fact?

just to drive it home, 9/11 is also still a hot topic.

Its like when Alex Jones went on TV over hear a while back they brought that 9/11 as well.

Don't knock the "Trews".

I have a lot of time for Russell Brand because he could be living a superficial life of luxury with a little bit of work involved periodically. Instead he has created a forum for discussion and 9/11 and Princess Diana's death are two topics that in my book are conspiracy because the elit4e benefitted from them and the public lost out. The elite conspire against the public in order to stay elite and get their goodies.

Russel isn't a Shill for sure and i enjoy watching his youtube channel because hes funny and and talks hard about corperations and inequality.

Which are major issues in our society. I could care less if he got inspired by a writer or the rising protests or revolution movements that are appearing and his just riding on the waves of that sucess. But honestly i could care less.

His famous, Lots of people know him. And if one more famous person is going to try and drum up their followers to become more open minded and consious of others that isn't a bad thing. That's a great thing. And i would love to see others in the public eye taking up such a role themselves.

As for the comment about pedophilic producers. I don't what Russels associates do in their spare time because im just watching a youtube channel. Not buying up russel merch and being a fanboy. lol.

Hes trying to protect all of us regular joes from the doomsday marching bands that are funneling our wealth into an abyss of oil.

Shouldn't we be a little appreciative that someone who could be much richer, denied his own path of wealth for us regular shomes. And his useing his public identity. His own personal face to do it. His not hiding behind a mask.

He's also trying to keep what ever credibility he can, He's never flat out said. OY US govbment killed those poor bloks for oil.
Rally up the pitch forks and torches!.

Hes keeping a lid on it so to speak, and is rather than fear mongering. Trying to entice critical thought on the media and social issues. Hes like a softcore version of Alex Jones.

Sometimes it's nice to hear it from a less doom porn type presentation.

Update your research. The "financial" thing, was debunked in 2002.

Such are the foundation stones of the conspiracy theories.
No need to believe any investigators when you have Youtube channels.

how did these terrorists gain so much knowledge of where "inside the pentagon" is it at it's weakest/where most success is to be gained? why the financial dept?

They didn't have any extra knowledge.
They chose the twin towers, Pentagon and White house because they are symbols of the US.
A hit anywhere on any of the targets was a win for them.



timing things/coordination with the enemy is how "success" was achieved, after negotiating the spoils?
and a painted van with people dancing in the ashes of this must have been a figment of my imagination, too?

you make it sound like a mall shooting would not satisfy their (terrorists') bloodlust...which would not have grown from the seeds planted in their soil...due to what are we defending again?

Love Russell Brand.
You know, I kind of think that it's good that comedians and actors are out talking about their opinions on things. As I said in another thread, this generation is one hooked to media. And I'll admit it, I spend a great deal of time on the internet, as well.
The thing is, kids trust these people. And when a comedian or actor says "Hey, this doesn't seem right." People listen.

How many people listened to what Ben Affleck had to say about Muslim people being victims?
How many people listened to Hannibal Buress talk about Bill Cosby being a rapist?

People hear things and then research it. It opens doors, and knowledge is power.

Actually no. I mean they hear it from YT or somewhere else and they look on a multitude of websites, some of which will say the same things, and some that do not. And they form an opinion based on what they read. Kthx.

It's mind-boggling that some people cannot see the agenda to group together those who don't believe the OS of 9/11 with people whom sprout ridiculous and highly implausible conspiracy theories. It's all about discrediting people and misdirection from truth. Russell Brand obviously wants to distance himself from the media's portrayal of conspiracy theorists because he knows it is a tactic used to mock and discredit anything he will say.
