just another jon stewart/bill maher spewing bullshit far left politics with over simplified solutions, then doesnt exactly practice what he preaches and has a fan base that takes his politics for real news
He's a gatekeeper,steam valve. to keep you from finding the actual names of these banking elite he speaks of, but never calls by name. he's another Alex Jones, and their job is to keep you pacified with half the truth.
I honestly agree with most of what he says apart from telling people not to vote. That part is just ridiculous and will only end up in disaster. I do however think he has a vested interest in the form of book sales but this doesn't matter too much to me as he is preaching valuable information that the public needs to know
>>585859105 saying he is left, is showing that u dont know shit about what u are talking about. He is trying to make u idiots see, that ur stigmatized idiot political system doesnt work, but CNN probably doesnt say so and thats ok.
>>585856866 Ive always been a fan of Russell since his mtv days, he grew up not far from me and used to come to my town on holiday when he was a kid.
I went to one of his recordings for Ponderland a few years ago. Now hes doing all this political stuff on youtube, and although I do enjoy and agree with alot of what he has to say, I do think he sounds like abit of a crackpot at times and I can see why people may think he is a helmet
>>585856866 Hypocrite. Idiot. Man who routinely tells people who were studying for Oxford degrees while he was smoking crack that they don't know anything about politics and economics. Man who thinks shouting "ITS DUH BANKAS FAULT INNIT" and "UR RACIST" qualifies as insightful and revolutionary.
>>585864003 Agreed, he offers nothing to solve this problem. So let me, lets use the democratic system in the UK for what its worth. Look into the Green partys manifesto and tell me what you disagree with and why. As far as i'm concerned, its all rational.
He's a total fool and anyone with a brain won't follow his ignorant bullshit. All I see is typical Tumblr tools jumping onto what he says because it's HEY THAT GUY WAS STUPID AND ON DRUGS, NOW HE'S SAYING CLEVER THINGS. When what he's saying - Bankers are bad / politicians are liars are basic tropes that any government body is a sack of shit, is what people have been saying for the past 50 years. But he says it and everyone sucks his dick.
He's literally a human thesaurus that uses big words to sound clever so stupid fucks, a good 70% of Britain, will think he's some of of Che Guevara genius who's speaking out for the common man.
Did you see that interview where he throws the toys out of him pram and drags that woman into help him when he was asked how much his house is worth? Would he let those struggling women stop at his house? Course not...
>>585863720 >It is the banks fault Yes, this is.what EVERYONE HAS BEEN SAYING SINCE THE ECONOMIC CRASH. What I'm saying is he repeats it ad nauseam with no political or economic solutions and then acts like he's fucking Malcolm X. Or if he does he's shouting "REDISITRIBOOT DA WELF" like a Fourteen year old who just bought a Che Guevara t-shirt.
>And Farage is racist So everyone who questions what has been one of the largest steady flows of human migration in history is racist? Please get your head out your arse. Throwing words like racist aimlessly around creates social tyranny and stifles political debate.
in Brands defense, it was a needless question, and obv given just to be against the guy, but his reaction sums up why this guys a cunt
>>585865399 So you're saying instead of working and paying my bills and going out and being social, I should quit my job, and go and shout at parliament for a bit right? It's like that fucking ... fuck ... what was that shitty protest where all the middle class white kids went out and protested against the 1% because they were rich and they weren't
Because they were sitting in fucking tents complaining - This is the type of shit Brand promotes. Don't vote, do nothing, and complain about everything without offering a real solution.
Media whore desperately latching onto anything remotely subversive in order to have relevance now that no one cares about his shitty comedy. His book Revolution is littered with inaccuracies, contradictions, and shitty jokes. If anyone takes him seriously they are dumber than he is.
I never watched the Farage / Brand interview ... I didn't want to because it would be like that South Park episode between a giant douche and a turn sandwich. but I figured Farage would come across as less of a knob anyway. It's his job to convince people and would take everything in stride and look relaxed and shit. People suck Brands dick anyway and when criticised he acts all pissed off and WAAAH, YOU'RE THE PROBLEM HERE, NOT ME, IT'S ALL ABOUT SHIT PEOPLE LIKE YOU BECAUSE YOU EXIST ... again, no reasonable solutions
>>585866820 >Then you go to grad school to find out you know absolutely nothing about anything. He really needs to go to grad school. yeah no one, no matter how much education they have will ever know anything about anything
>>585866320 Then if everyone has said it is the banks fault, why the fuck haven't we done anything about it?
Using the word racist may also be a strong term, but its needed to allow people to question the validity of Farage and his cronies. So far, not many have and the media is loving it. This is what politics has become, Its a fucking joke.
>>585856866 I think he likes being appearing as the poster boy for a revolution and appearing like some type of enlightened ideologue. Though I agree with his political viewpoints, at least topically, it's obvious he hasn't thought it through much more than "we gotta get some guys together and do it".
He speaks in an accent and gives the sensitive brit rocker expression and moronic "lefty" women cream their jeans.
He just wants to be put on a pedestal. I'm convinced he is somewhat sociapathic in that he doesn't actually care for the cause much, as long as it puts him on a pedestal.
I've always said he's a faggot with a messianic complex.... and I didn't know this, but lo and behold, one of his comedy specials is actually CALLED, "messianic complex".
He's a shallow idiot that gets by because women love anything handsome. They don't particularly have to be skilled, bright, or actually know what they're talking about. Like him, really all it takes is a few of the buzzphrases and the lingo of the movement....
I personally could never stand that faggot. He's typecast as an ultra-arrogant rock star type with about the depth of a puddle, for a reason. That's who he actually is.
Also, he likes people to think he's a ladies man but that faggot has a pecker so small he's not even gonna do a midget any good (he did a nude protest one time). The whole messianic ladies man of the revolution image that he likes to cultivate probably comes from having a dick that's not even fit for intercourse.
>>585867424 I don't know the guy, but i would guess that they need both sides in media(Jews & against Jews), even when they all work for same side. If you own even those that talk against you, then you know they will never stab you.
>>585867424 >a fucking shill. >That's how I would describe him
Shill for what?
He encourages people to not only think for themselves (i.e. don't take for granted what he/Russell Brand thinks-tells them) but also encourages people to break beyond the corporate-owned mass media soup in which we're all marinated
i.e. consider where you're getting your information from
It's not really his views, or his stupid as fuck youtube channel
It's just the his arrogance and the way he acts when talking about this sort of stuff. He's SOOO sure of himself when speaking and any criticism will be launched into a whirlwind vide of how the critics are just 'jokes' and he's ALWAYS right. He threatened to sue the Sun for slander, but aren't they allowed to just bullshit him? He can call the Sun pricks and it's totally fine, but if they call him out, he's going to sue them (for the record I hardly read any paper anyway and when talking about it, it's not "oh well this is all wrong" in a calm way, he'll shoot some quick shitty video being all ponsy and arrogant and laughing thinking he's king shit
Along with a few others on this thread, it's good to see others think he's total nonse
>>585866320 the banks certainly have their part in the crisis. but it's not just their fault, which brand is implying.
but it's actually not hidden that jews are actually big in the media and banking buisness. pretty weird actually. they're just 2 percent of murican citizens. while they are the vast majority of big bankers and people in media/hollywood.
>>585869026 > thinks for themselves > corporate-owned mass media soup in which we're all marinated
Is that second one a direct line from brand himself?
But srs, think for themselves? I only know several people who listen to his shit, and 'thinking for themselves' translates to "Fuck the government and bankers" and that's pretty much it, it's one collective viewpoint of standard 'fuck the man' but in 2014 terms instead, and they're all the same
>>585867287 >why the fuck haven't we done anything about it? The point is we have. The banking system has undergone an overhaul in terms of how it is regulated, we now have large banking levys for large banks that produce billions towards economic recovery, capital buffers to protect against future collapses, better savings protection, strict executive vetting, convictions against many corrupt bankers etc. Its not perfect sure, but to act as if we haven't done anything is ludicrous. Brand occupies a high pedestal in British political debate and yet he seems to posses little knowledge of what he is talking about. Also on the topic of Farage I don't recall him ever bringing up race etc.
>>585873000 rubel, syria, the gold is missing in ukraine...all of it. expansion into the african continent. the forced collapse of the japanese economy. this isn't even approaching the situations with china. banks, there is no reform.
