Hollywood celebrities are almost universally in political lockstep.
Only a handful of people in entertainment dared support Donald Trump or his claims about the 2020 election.
But one liberal comedian shockingly admitted how the 2020 election was rigged.
Comedian and actor Russell Brand is undoubtedly a man of the Left.
He’s even cozy to the idea of socialism, but Brand is an old-school liberal in that he’s willing to talk to people that disagree with him, he’s skeptical of establishment power, and he believes in free speech.
Those beliefs are in short supply on the Left these days.
In a recent episode of his podcast called “Under the Skin,” Brand interviewed journalist Glenn Greenwald—another principled left-winger—and expressed counter-narrative views about the 2020 election.
“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? The answer is: yes, they did.”
The so-called mainstream media wanted everyone to believe that everything Joe Biden and his family did was entirely above board.
Brand wasn’t playing that game, explaining:
“Look, I’m not a pro-Republican person. I don’t see myself that way…[T]hey 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?”
Unfortunately, many Americans never heard about Biden’s dubious foreign entanglements.
A survey showed that one out of six voters in swing states would not have voted for Biden had they known about some of the negative stories regarding him and his family.
“[F]or 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.’”
The New York Post released a bombshell report about Hunter Biden’s shady business dealings, but Twitter and Facebook openly suppressed the story.
Twitter wouldn’t even allow the link to the story to be shared privately.
The Post, the country’s oldest newspaper, was locked out of its Twitter account for nearly two weeks for reporting factual news.
That election interference is far greater than anything purportedly done by Russian troll farms in 2016.
“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.”
The Democrats and big tech have dangerously merged to create a quasi-fascist establishment.
It’s a serious problem, and more people on the Left like Brand need to call it out.
