Liberal comedian Whoopi Goldberg clumsily deployed the race card in an argument with conservative guest co-host Will Cain of The Blaze on Wednesday's The View about comedian Russell Brand comparing Fox News to ISIS. Cain had criticized Brand, pointing out the ludicrousness of describing a news channel he disagrees with politically to violent, predatory terrorists.
Tackling how absurd American society's obsession with a virtual right to not be offended by someone else's words, Goldberg snapped back that he had “[s]poken like a true white guy.” Goldberg insisted that people “absolutely have the right” to ask people to stop using words that make them “uncomfortable.” Cain countered that “you have to be bigger than words.” In response to Goldberg arguing that people “do have the absolute right” to tell people not to use certain words Cain replied “We’d all be out of business. Everyone’s offended all of the time!”
Actor/comedian Russell Brand just keeps promoting his new socialist crusade in the British press, this time in the radical-left Guardian. They love slams on capitalism from anyone, and that income inequality is a sign of the “end of days.”
“I can't deny that I've done a lot of daft things while I was under the capitalist fugue, some silly telly, soppy scandals, movies better left unmade,” Brand wrote. “I've also become rich. I don't hate rich people; Che Guevara was a rich person. I don't hate anyone, I judge no one, that's not my job.” (Naturally, a few paragraphs later he judges a tax evader as an "a***-hole.") He doesn’t like the charge of hypocrisy:
Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto told him to shut up, but British actor/comedian Russell Brand announced on BBC Newsnight that British prime minister "David Cameron says profit isn't a dirty word, well I say profit is a filthy word." Celebrity Net Worth says Brand is worth $15 million, and could more than double that in his divorce settlement with pop star Katy Perry.
Brand insisted on "massive redistribution of wealth" and profit "hugely reduced," so why not start with actors? (Video below)
With the start of the Bradley Manning court martial, a number of famous and not-so famous Hollywood liberals have released a video in support of their hero.
It includes the likes of Oliver Stone, Russell Brand, Peter Sarsgaard, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Moby, Tom Morello, Wallace Shawn, and the perilously liberal so-called journalists Matt Taibbi, Phil Donahue, and Chris Hedges (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
In the latest marriage-disdaining cover story in the Sunday newspaper supplement Parade Magazine, pop star Katy Perry wore a glittery Uncle Sam hat and blue blouse over the words “Yankee Doodle Katy: Katy Perry Celebrates Her Independence.” They're touting independence, as in her divorce from tawdry British actor/comedian Russell Brand after a whole 14 months of marriage. Apparently, he's the British autocrat in this analogy.
Somehow, Parade lunged to associate pride in America with gay rights and Barack Obama:
As NewsBusters reported, Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards presentation was filled with some disgraceful pro-Obama, anti-Republican moments courtesy of host British comedian Russell Brand.
Amazingly, things could have been much worse, for censors forced Brand to cut some even more disgusting comments, including one about Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin putting her pregnant daughter Bristol in an electric chair "for being a slut."
I kid you not.
