He analyzed a rant from Fox News “Justice” host Judge Jeanine Pirro, and concluded it was no different from terrorist videos featuring masked men swearing vengeance on the United States
In a new video (above) uploaded to his YouTube channel, Brand picks apart Pirro’s broadcast rant about President Barack Obama’s “clueless” position on violence unfolding in Iraq and calls Fox News “a fanatical terrorist propagandist organization.”
Brand’s comment came after playing clips of Pirro calling for “airstrikes” on Iraq and labeling jihadist militant group Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) a “fanatical religious terrorist organization.”
“So is Fox News,” Brand said. “It’s not reasonable, is it? Not the way she’s talking. ‘Bomb them! Bomb them!’ She’s worse.”
He compared Pirro’s rant to videos from the very terrorist organization she is speaking out against.
“She’s just doing it with a city backdrop,” Brand said. “She’s the savage. She’s espousing savage values.”
Ultimately, Brand’s message seems to be that Fox News refuses to recognize the United States government’s own role in creating the violent upheaval in the Middle East.
“Hopefully, over the course of this she’s going to acknowledge the U.S. government and military, in their meddling with foreign affairs, have created this situation in Iraq, created the threat of ISIS — likely armed them over the course of preceding decades — and certainly contributes to the instability in that region,” Brand said at the start of his analysis. “There should be no further intervention or meddling, because that’s what led to the problem in the first place.”
