Russell Brand — who can sometimes be such a dippy comedic personality, can also be an incredibly a sharp, incisive political commentator — continues to move away from booky wooks and shagging exploits and toward class revolution. Last year, Brand completely humiliated the Stepford Berks on MSNBC, and now he’s taking aim at Fox News over the rant of Fox News legal analyst Jeanine Pirro, who called ISIS “fanatical terrorist propagandist organisation” and suggested that the only way to deal with Jihadists groups in Iraq and Syria is to “bomb them bomb them bomb them.”
Brand shot back on his YouTube channel, calling Fox News “a fanatical terrorist propagandist organisation.”
“F*cking hell. When they do these bombings it creates more insurgents… It creates more terrorism.” He called Pirro’s rant “evil,” “incendiary,” and volatile combative, and angry before concluding, “I’m not being just sensational. That is more dangerous than ISIS — that attitude. That’s far-reaching. That’s affecting millions and millions of people.”
Near the end of the segment, Brand sums up Pirro’s rant perfectly. “There’s a point where, it’s like ‘You’re evil, you’re evil, you’re evil’ that becomes a sort of a sublime, blissful comedic entity, like you can’t take her seriously. She becomes like a drill, or some odd abstract noise.”
That pretty much sums up Fox News.
