The left has gone off the rails.
Anything goes in order to ensure that establishment Democrats rule the roost.
But a liberal comic infuriated Democrats when he uncovered one huge problem.
Democrats are quickly purging anyone who disagrees with them on anything.
Life-long liberals have been branded “conservatives” for simply pushing back against the left’s COVID regime and affinity for censorship.
Comedian Russell Brand, despite his leftist bona fides, has been called right-wing by the liberal establishment because he refused to go along with the narrative about COVID and media censorship.
Brand exposed how he was being censored on YouTube, so he announced that he will be launching a new show that’s exclusive to alternative platform Rumble.
From The Post Millennial:
“Comedian and podcaster Russell Brand is launching a daily live show on Rumble starting later this month. The show, titled ‘Stay Free with Russell Brand,’ will air exclusively on the free speech video platform…The show will feature Brand providing his perspective on global events and politics. It will live stream on Rumble at 1 pm EST on weekdays. Reclaimthenet reports that after the stream, Brand will host an ‘exclusive live question and answer session for his subscribers on Locals, Rumble’s subscription-based community platform.’ Brand’s own premium content will also be uploaded to Locals.”
Platforms like Rumble are working to solve the Big Tech bottleneck problem.
Gatekeeper institutions in Big Tech and banking are attempting to filter out people with views in opposition to the establishment.
Rumble, Locals, and other platforms committed to preserving a culture of free speech are growing quickly.
Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski said in a statement, “We are excited to empower Russell to grow his audience on Rumble and Locals…Russell is known for his unfiltered opinions, and we are proud to serve as the technology platform where he can grow his audience.”
It’s wild that the left is completely on board with censoring comics, but that is how far left so-called liberals have gone.
Two of the most targeted public figures today are Brand and fellow comedian Joe Rogan.
After recently being censored on YouTube, Brand said, “We have been officially censored by YouTube…They took down one of our videos for misinformation, but why are big media organizations not censored for misinformation in the same way? Is it because YouTube are part of the mainstream media now?”
YouTube is owned by Google, which is clearly a left-wing company.
They will move whichever way the Democrats move.
When The New York Times prints fake news, YouTube will consider that the truth.
But when a “dangerous” counter-narrative voice tells the objective truth, he or she is shut down and discredited.
To prove his point, Brand played a clip of MSNBC host Rachel Maddow spreading fake news about COVID.
Maddow said, “Now we know that the vaccines work well enough that the virus stops with every vaccinated person…A vaccinated person gets exposed to the virus? The virus does not infect them, the virus cannot then use that person to go anywhere else.”
Of course, Maddow and MSNBC will never be censored.
