Russell Brand is at it again in his anti-Fox News crusade, this time comparing the network to Charlie Hebdo attackers.
In a YouTube video posted Tuesday, Brand calls out “moron” Fox host Jeanine Pirro and News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch.
Brand first weaves in and out of a segment by Pirro:
“We need to kill them, we need to kill them,” Pirro said in a clip Brand shows. “You’re in danger, I’m in danger; we’re at war and this is not going to stop,” she continued.
“No, if you keep doing that it bloody won’t!” Brand giggles. “That’s the same energy of the murderers: judgment, hate, certainty in your own position, condemnation, the language of war.”
He goes on to suggest solutions need to be found between America and Muslims.
“This person [Pirro] is prepared, the same as the terrorists, to cast aside human values,” Brand said about Pirro. “The right to free speech is important, but it’s not as important as ‘we are all human beings together, let’s find solutions together. What she’s doing, while it’s obviously not as violent or as gory or as terrible, it’s equally damaging because it’s insidious and has great reach.”
Brand also criticizes Murdoch for having ownership in companies that benefit off further prosecution of Muslims.
“It’s not like he’s a dove, lovely old man,” Brand says.
