It’s getting hot in here.
Hip Hop artists and rappers including Common, Ne-Yo, Karmin and Elle Varner collaborated on a new album that mixes hip hop with climate change alarmism and left-wing talking points. On Nov. 18, National Journal said four original tracks with environmental themes were released that day on the “HOME” EP. The full album from People’s Climate Music project will be released in December.
Common, Malik Yusef and Kumasi recorded one of those songs, “Trouble in the Water,” after a discussion of water pollution and drought, National Journal said. In the song he used several liberal talking points related to climate change. One of them was that hurricanes were related to global warming, “Through hurricanes, the pain is made audible.”
British comedian and actor Russell Brand is worth roughly $20 million and he’s also never voted. But that didn’t stop far-left Democracy Now! from seeking out his views on politics and income inequality.
Brand appeared on Democracy Now! Nov. 14, 2014, where he railed against the current U.S. and U.K. political systems and about income inequality as well as praised left-wing academic Noam Chomsky. He also promoted his new book, “Revolution.”
Host Amy Goodman lauded Brand who she claimed had “emerged as one of the most prominent voices of the British left.” She also proudly disclosed his work with the Occupy movement and noted that he marched with the “hacker collective Anonymous.”

Crude comedian Sarah Silverman is no stranger to politics and controversial topics. In her latest shock video, she weighed in on male/female pay disparity claiming she’s going to have a sex change because of the “vagina tax.”
Silverman joined the many lefties who complain about a pay gap between men and women and attribute it to discrimination without consideration for actual differences between individuals. Those claims have been largely discredited, but in her YouTube video, Silverman went into a doctor’s office to get a sex change so she can get paid as a man instead of a woman

Author and columnist Naomi Klein is still having trouble getting her facts straight. This time, in an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” she tried to argue China is not a communist country, even though it is run by the Communist Party of China.
In that Sept. 24 interview, Klein was promoting her new book, “This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate.” She claimed that “we have an economic system that has essentially waged war” on the planet.
While touting her ‘Capitalism vs. The Climate’ book, Klein gets the facts wrong, again.
