Comedian Russell Brand certainly doesn’t keep his opinions private and in a new YouTube post, he made his view of Fox News very clear. He posted a 10-minute response to commentator Jeanine Pirro, who went on a tirade Saturday about what the U.S. government should do to stop ISIS in Iraq.
In the video, Brand took Pirro’s argument apart piece-by-piece. As the Huffington Post UK notes, he really didn’t like Pirro calling the extremist group a “fanatical terrorist propagandist organization,” suggesting that this is exactly what Fox News is.
“So is Fox News,” Brand said. “It's a fanatical terrorist propagandist organization.”
According to RawStory, Brand slammed Pirro’s statement that ISIS was “coming for us.” He also said that, by calling ISIS infidels, she was misusing the word.
“They not coming,” Brand said. “Also, it’s interesting when she says, to them, we are the infidels. Meaning that she regards them as the infidels. Which means unclean, disconnected from God. Don’t try to counter religious extremism with religious extremism.”
Elsewhere in her speech, Pirro called for bombing ISIS. “F**king hell!” Brand responded. He suggested that by bombing them, the U.S. would just be creating more insurgents. Instead of thinking of bombs as destructive devices, think of them as seeds that grow more insurgents, he suggested.
