On Wednesday, it was announce that liberal actress Kathy Griffin is hosting the Shorty Awards, the online social media awards show with a heavily liberal slant. Even by Hollywood standards, these awards appear remarkably politicized. Unglued actress Kathy Griffin, made infamous recently for holding a fake severed head of President Trump in a photoshoot, is both the host and a finalist of this year’s best celebrity category. Other nominees include former Vice President Joe Biden and actor Russell Brand.
The podcast industry is trying to get in on Netflix’s game, and by that we mean, yes, they’re trying to set up a premium streaming site, but mostly that they’re attempting to produce content from a bunch of progressive propagandists. The flagship podcast streaming site Luminary has just announced its opening lineup and it’s chock full of all the liberal takes we’ve come to know and loathe. Can’t get enough of allegedly funnyman Trevor Noah? He’s on Luminary. As is feminist Lena Dunham.
It was not a Mensa meeting when Larry King interviewed British comedian Russell Brand about socialism and fascism, among other topics. Brand cast Trump as a grotesque figure – talk about the pot calling the kettle black – but said he at least seemed authentic. King shot back “But he’s authentic/not-authentic. Because, does he have a philosophy?” Brand held up Norwegian socialism as the "answer" for the world, and King told Brand he looked "almost Jesus-like."
Can popular comedians actually contribute something of value to this world, or are they stuck mindlessly mimicking liberal intellectuals? Case in point: Russell Brand and his Under the Skin podcasts. In an interview Brand held with liberal author and activist Naomi Klein, whose latest book, No Is Not Enough, analyzes Trump and where he came from, the comedian tried to wax intellectual. Quite frankly, he failed. But he won when it came to parroting liberal catch phrases.
A liberal worth $15 million crusading against the wealthy with a documentary. Now that's comedy gold.
It's also exactly what British comedian and left-wing activist Russell Brand has done by making The Emperor's New Clothes, which was directed Michael Winterbottom.
Can we get a recount? That’s the natural reaction to this headline in the U.K. Guardian: “Russell Brand voted world's fourth most influential thinker.”
Hannah Ellis-Peterson relayed "the comedian turned activist has now earned the nod of approval from one of Britain’s most influential current affairs magazines, whose readers have voted him fourth in their annual table of the world’s top thinkers."
When you’re coming up with New Year’s resolutions just in time for the start of 2015, you may want to exclude advice from certain people the news media turn to as experts, but who fail to live up to the hype. Despite being continually cited by the media, these five scientists, celebrities and journalist-wannabes have all been criticized, debunked or refuted in the past year.
The actor and comedian Russell Brand has certainly tried to brand himself. “Messiah Complex” was the name of his last tour. His new book is titled “Revolution.” On “The Tonight Show,” he told Jimmy Fallon he’s inspired by Jesus, Gandhi, Malcolm X, and Che Guevara. He thinks he’s like them. In Tinseltown they're the Fab Four revolutionaries for the downtrodden.
So it’s shocking to him -- and no surprise to us -- when he gets exposed by the British press as a fraud. He's just another champagne socialist playacting.
The hosts of CBS This Morning on Tuesday hailed liberal comedian (and multi-millionaire) Russell Brand on his crusade for "affordable housing." The British comic was protesting in London against a proposed real estate development that would displace others.
Liberal celebrity Russell Brand on Thursday announced that he's "open" to the idea that the United States government may have been behind the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks. Talking to a British reporter, Brand theorized, "Do you trust the American government? Do you trust the British government? What I do think is very interesting is the relationship that the Bush family have had for a long time with the Bin Laden family."
Leftist British actor Russell Brand tried to create an anti-Fox News publicity stunt for his YouTube channel, but he was turned away by security who said he couldn't film on private property.
He went after Bill O'Reilly: "In this particular episode, Bill O'Reilly is helping us be more Islamophobic. You might not feel that Islamophobic today. You might think, ‘aw, people who are Muslim are the same as us, they just a different religious perspective. Bill will help you to find some hatred in your heart for people just like you."
During the 8:30 a.m. half-hour of NBC’s Today on Monday, Matt Lauer interviewed far-left actor Russell Brand and gave him ample opportunity to promote his new book and what Lauer described as his “big thoughts on big issues,” ranging “from drug laws and voting to the redistribution of the wealth around the world.”
Substitute co-host Tamron Hall gushed that Brand’s book is “funny and, as always, thought-provoking” just prior to the four-and-a-half minute interview in which Lauer and Brand would discussed his calls to legalize a whole host of drugs from marijuana to heroin and how he has promised never to vote because he feels electoral systems are all rigged.
