Influencer, Actor, Comedian, and Social Commentator Russell Brand recently ripped into the Democratic Party and accused it of colluding with big tech companies to influence the 2020 election and censor information.
Brand has always called himself an anarchist and a man who many consider to be left on the political spectrum, however, it seems he is more of a “truther” who has no issue calling things out even when they benefit what we consider to be “his side.” Although lately, with Brand’s counter-revolutionary spirit, it doesn’t seem he will side with the liberal establishment.
On Sunday’s episode of his podcast “Under the Skin,” he interviewed investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald, and criticized the relationship between the Democrats, the media, and big tech.
“Did the media and social media conspire together to keep information about Joe Biden and Hunter Biden’s relationship with foreign energy companies out of the media?” Brand began in a clip of his podcast. “The answer is: yes, they did.”
Watch his powerful insight below:
As the show went on, Brand also included the Democratic Party into the list of powerful groups who actively work to distort information. The entertainer and podcaster grieved the fact he believes it is mainly the Democratic Party a corrupt conspirator against American democracy. He didn’t forget also condemning Twitter, Facebook, and the mainstream media for censoring reports about Hunter Biden’s shady dealings and Joe Biden’s corrupt connections to China and elsewhere.
“Look, I’m not a pro-Republican person. I don’t see myself that way. I don’t see myself as a conservative, or that I’m in a Trump or Giuliani or media establishments that were reporting on these revelations, they are not my cultural, social, or political allies. That’s certainly not how I see myself. However, it seems to me that what reason is Hunter Biden [sitting] on the board of an energy company in the Ukraine? What reason is James Biden [sitting] on the board or receiving payments from an energy company in China?
At a time when we’re talking about sleaze, corruption, financial misdemeanors and relationships between corporations, big business, and politicians, let’s just face it: unless you’re bloody stupid, you know that’s going on all the time. So, either change that or let’s stop pretending that politicians are aspiring to anything other than the advance of their own interests. And if there is a byproduct, a few people get helped along the way, well, then, that’s great.
But for me, revelations that there are financial connections between energy companies in the Ukraine, energy companies in China, and the Biden family are troubling. That should be public knowledge. And it’s even more troubling that Twitter and Facebook and the media at large deliberately kept it out of the news because they didn’t want it to influence the election. What is democracy, then? It suggests to me that democracy is, ‘We want you to vote for this person. We don’t want you to vote for that person.’
As I’ve said, Donald Trump, you know, I don’t think Donald Trump’s the answer, but I’m sad to realize that I can no longer even claim to believe that Joe Biden or the Democratic Party might be the answer, because look at how they behave. And look at the relationships between media, social media, and that party. They conspired to keep information away from you because it was not convenient to their agenda.”
