Comedian Russell Brand condemned Fox News as a fanatical terrorist propaganda organization during a heated, 10-minute tirade recorded on video and uploaded to the web this week.
The 39-year-old British stand-up comic-turned-actor is now making headlines for the video footage, which was uploaded to his personal YouTube channel on Tuesday this week under the title: Is Fox News More Dangerous than Isis?
Throughout the duration of the clip, Brand responded with sheer outrage to recent remarks made on-air by Fox host Jeanine Pirro, a former prosecutor, who said during a broadcast of her program last weekend that the United States should bomb Iraq en masse in order to eliminate the growing insurgency there that has cause an international crisis.
When they do these bombings, it creates more insurgents, thats what creates them, Brand responded. Dont think of a bomb as going down there and destroying stuff, think of it as like a seed that goes into the ground, and grows insurgents out of it, it creates more terrorism, doing it.
From there, Brand continued to counter Pirros claims by juxtaposing clips from the broadcast in question with his own responses. Whereas the Fox host said that any agreement reached between the US and Iran to remediate the insurgency would be on par with cutting a deal with the devil, Brand blasted her for alleging as much.
At one point, Pirro says during the episode that the group credited with the recent string of attacks across Iraq, ISIS, is a fanatical religious terrorist organization.
So is Fox News, Brand fired back. Its a fanatical terrorist propagandist organization. This isnt reasonable, is it? Like the way shes talking? Bomb them! Bomb them! Shes worse Shes the savage, shes totally espousing savage values.
Its invective, just incendiary language, just volatile combative, angry language. That Im not being sensational that is more dangerous than ISIS, he added. Thats attitude. Thats far-reaching. Thats affecting millions and millions of people.
Some, including Fox commentators, quickly came to Pirros defense as Brands remarks began to go viral.
If he feels that ISIS is harmless, he should go there and hang out with them. They would behead him faster than you could say Arthur. His worst movie, Greg Gutfeld responded during a recent episode of Foxs The Five program.
Days earlier, RT caught up with Brand during an anti-austerity rally in London in which he again condemned the mainstream media, that time targeting BBC.
These folks are punking America rather thoroughly, with most of the networks in their sway, and they fear Fox is going to do much to change that?
These dull-normals are incapable of separating news from opinion. Brett Baier is news. Most of the rest is opinion. Deal with it.
Another crackhead brain dead liberal. But I repeat myself.
Yeah, those Fox News massacres are getting worse all the time.
Who the hell is this GREASEY, DIRTY, SLOPPY, UNEDUCATED FOREIGNER? And WHY should anyone over 13 care about what he says??? I don’t even know what he DOES.
Brand is a bloody little wanker
He looks psychotic.
Heroin is a heckuva drug.
You have to go to the linked site and read the comments! They’re abdo-lutely wild!

Great insight except that the foaming mad Islamics were there BEFORE anyone ever sent a bomb. Except that when they don’t have ‘infidels’ to slaughter they slaughter each other. Except that their very “prophet” was a murderous butcher and rapist and he exhorted THEM to slaughter and rape in the furtherance of Islam. But outside of that it all really holds up.
What I think they really see is God’s Spirit still peeking around the corners and saying “miss Me yet?”
And in liberal fashion they scapegoat other entities.
Can’t handle the truth, as Limbaugh says.
“The Judge is wound up and wants to mass kill people.
She wants to play with the drone joy stick of death
from a safe distance with a cup of latte in the other hand.
She sure is shocking and awing the ducking pisss out of me.”
Some family in Britain is missing a hysterical little girl.
Mr Brand is about as funny as Maher.
F` `em both.
This guy has always impressed me with how creepy he is.
Comedian? I doubt if he is funny.
It is the Age of Distortions.
