Yeah mainstream media pretend journalists hate youtubers like Russel Brand because he does journalism for real.

Brand is really good friends with one of the goblins in the wef (I forget which one). He's probably only talking about these subjects for predictive programming purposes.

Yuval aka Klaus Schwab's right hand man. Russell Brand is controlled opposition.

Yes that's him thank you. I was waiting for it to come to me but it never did

He's not remotely based, he's a liberal who used to pretend to be a communist to try to trick the working class. Until he realised working class people don't actually care about communism and now he does this classical liberal/conspiracy style grift instead, because it's more popular with working class people.

Brand has been gaining quite an audience in recent years since addressing real concerns on his podcast. He had something of a controversial history on UK television after reaching fame hosting Big Brother, going on to become a drug and sex addict. He had a weird left wing phase calling for revolution but seems to have a more grounded approach to topics these days. You can tell on his podcasts that he treads on eggshells due to YouTube policy on speech and narratives, and I'm never truly sure if he actually aligns himself with the side he portrays in his dialogue...But the man is doing well and is asking relevant questions. Brand's podcast is definitely worth the watch.

He refuses to talk about the meat of most issues with excuses like "I don't want to argue". But really just uses that excuse to shut down conversation. He often uses leftist pseudo intellectual tropes like "I just want to live in a world that is kind" to justify illogical and often toxic progressive agendas. Then when challenged with an explanation of how the agenda is bad he shuts down the conversation with "let's not argue".

I appreciate that he goes further right than most leftists, but he is still very much a leftist. His mentality is feelings over facts.

Bingo. You said what I was going to say, much more eloquently as well.

He's a socialist I think

The real left (not the fake left in America) tend to be the most truth-based group out there, although there are still obvious feds among their group trying to promote stupidity.

Yes, I think you are correct. He has also found god since recovering from excessive drug use, I personally never found god since going sober, but each have their own ways of comprehending their journey through life.

I want to like this guy. Seems good "on paper" but I can't quite put my finger on why I'm getting strong Alex Jones-esque controlled opposition vibes.

Seems good on paper except the sex addition and doing a 180 on his politics every 18 months.

Addiction can affect anyone, be it sex, drugs, cigarettes, gambling, sports, etc. Judge a person not on their addiction but on how they overcome it.

What do you have against added sex?

[–]jet199 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Shows weak character and someone chasing praise

[–][deleted] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Maybe bitter about not getting any

He's got a solid record. Read all of his stuff.

He can't be an antisemite. He'll screw any Jewish woman.

You've never heard of Russell Brand? What rock have you been living under?

[–]Chipit[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

No the other guy.

And I wasn't aware of Brand until recently, either. Honestly it's tough keeping all these people straight, unless it's your full-time job to do so. For some people on this site, it is.

I always confuse him with the other guy...that other actor/former-actor guy, but skinnier. They both spout some off-the-wall stuff.
