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.
I saw a few short clips of his rant on FNC. I could barely make out about every fourth word. His horrible voice and disastrous accent really grate on my nerves. Hard to believe that he makes money being a stand up comic or actor, when few people can even understand a thing he says. Major jerk!
“Americans are very open about attacking and war against others because they have a big military but not only. because they sit in their island protected by the oceans on one side and Canada above. We can kill you but you cant kill us attitude. Kill off Iran, a Persian country with no war history. America, a massive war history and cause of great suffering and lives.”
The comments are idiotic!
Katy Perry dumped his ass, that’s a lot to get over. Doesn’t this clown have a show on FX( a Fox owned channel) If it hasn’t been canceled already it will be.
Thanks for the post, nickcarraway.
Admittedly, Brand has created some ‘stir’ with previous rants, but this one is way over the top, IMO.
He presents as a typical a$$hat leftist, tearing down and never building up. He is quick to condemn, but offers nothing of substance in the way of addressing or correcting the subject issue.
Go on back to your fantasy life, RB. Let the adults deal with the world beyond your rose colored glasses.
I didn’t think he was funny back when he was Tom Green.
Russell Brand is a little light in the loafers...
Forget him, he’s a comedian, an entertainer. The court jester of the modern world.
No wonder Katy Perry left his dumbass.
What’s your solution.
You, like most non-thinkers are just so swell at your own peculiar invective but, creativity to solve a problem isn’t what your concerned with.
You’d rather run around channeling your national hero, Neville Chamberlain, which costs you nothing but, you can mouth off, like an elitist, using your fame to reach your audience.
Your soldiers wear red because they like being a target, as well masquerading as a still warm corpse.
you suck, europe sucks but, you have no problem using as your outsourced army, to break things and kill people who would kill you.
your people have no sense of right for the sake of mans highest calling, charity and relief.
no, you can be counted on to spew synthetic renderings of gimp intellectual prowess.
Fear not, white man carrying ass on shoulder.
we think. We strategize. We take the long view.
We show up first, the world over, to help our fellow man.
you only show up if there is a red carpet. What is your predilections for red anyway?
You blow and so does your humor.
you are England’s Bronson Pincho. Your humor was only funny for topic of current event.
now, you have no current event to set you vaudeville act to.
move on and open a chain of Bean Burgers.
your motto could fir nicely on a black flag as follows:
“Not quite 1.3 billion served”...
Sniveling half wit brit...
This is the guy who was too nuts for Katy Perry.
Well now. He is about as relevant as what’s his name, the Brit who took over for Larry King and lasted only a little while.
Everything in common with the nazis whom islamists still ally themselves with from WWII.
He’s a comedian? Who knew?
Whats Brands solution?
Get rid of Fox? Will that bring the insurgents to their knees?? This guy is brilliant
Hey Boy Brand, you seem to be sucking up the fame and fortune this great country has to offer, but you complain about protecting freedom and liberty?
STFU OR GO HOME FOOL,WE DON’T NEED ANYMORE BRAIN DEAD LIBS LECTURING THE REST OF US ON FOREIGN AFFAIRS. Stick with acting like a baffoon and marrying pop stars, ya know, all the hard stuff...
There was a time when newspapers had an editorial page which was labled as opinion and TV news shows had a segment which was clearly labled as opinion. The rest was of course far from truly “objective” but at least was to a great extent a reporting of facts as well as could be expected. Today there is nothing like a clear demarcation between news reporting and opinion and much of America is composed of people who have no mental concept of the difference. Most on the left simply assume that what they believe is incontrovertible while anything said in disagreement is at best an uninformed opinion and more likely deliberate lying.
The average sharecropper with a fourth grade education back in the fifties was more likely to be capable of logic than any of the prominent leftists of today. That sharecropper did not have the luxury of sitting in the shade whining that someone else should come and walk behind the mule because he didn’t feel well. He knew that if he didn’t work the fields no one else would. He knew it as a fact which would not be altered by his opinion.
Mr. Katy Perry.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
I’m wasting my time and giving aid and comfort to the mentally deranged but lets just say the facts; Brand is a brat! His intent is to keep his name in the public in the truism, “The only bad publicity is NO publicity!” The best way to handle them is to ignore them and let them go away. I have little doubt that this dubious character will come to a bad end without better control of his life, so I bid him an unfound adieu from my cognizance!
Well then this idiot should be all for the bombing of brain dead progressives. Because according to this brain dead leach, it will only create more progressives.
Katy Perry came to her senses eventually..
one more dope on a mission
Russell, call Mom.
your bottle is ready.
Dude, it’s a TV SHOW!!!
Flip the channel. Power off.
Fox News will NOT lob bombs into your town, nor send suicide bombers, nor hijack the jet you travel around in.
Get a grip, pal. Drugs are a bad thing.
What will these nuts on the left do with the rise in right leaning media? There is The Blaze, One America News, NewsMax TV and The Next news Network out there. I wish all four outlets could pull their resources together and create one network. But I’ll take what I can get.
Fox News is still decent. But there was a void for more right leaning channels.

This is yet another example of the pure idiocy of the far left.
