Here’s one of the intellectually honest leftists I’ve talked about in recent months, only this one has a more recognizable name and a video to go with his awakening.
I’ve liked Russell Brand over the years but I’ve also heard him at times just being too purposefully over-the-top vile, and I don’t like that. I forget the specifics but I just remember at one point ruling him out as any kind of uniquely thoughtful or artful performer.
And that remains the case today, though he’s definitely earned some serious accolades for the video posted below. Besides, you don’t have to be “uniquely thoughtful or artful” to still be uniquely intellectually honest, especially in today’s world where so much of what we hear from our most powerful institutions is 100% fabricated “news” designed to engineer responses and results that are most desirable to the elites.
In his 15-minute video below, Russell Brand professes to have initially bought into the Trump/Russia collusion hoax perpetrated by the corporate legacy news media and U.S. intelligence community. He, like most people, didn’t think it through real deeply but heard enough to know something sounded shady. And as Brand goes on to note, the next several years were spent watching the media and intelligence community continue stoking more lies.
The intellectually honest and fair people in the world who got swept up in the media’s “Trump/Russia Collusion Hoax” now know it was all bullshit. And that gives them pause because the obvious question is if the media et al were willing to lie so casually and pervasively about that, then what else are they willing to lie to us about?
The correct answer, as most of you already know, is everything.
The good news tonight is that we’re clearly no longer the only ones who know that.
