Russell Brand Talks Revolution on BBC: "This is the End! It's Time to Wake Up!"


The more I listen to this guy the more I like him..!!!
.. he had better be careful or he's gonna end up "suicided" He is making all right points, is extremely articulate, cannot or will not be redirected by the "talking heads" he is confronted with.. and every time he ends up making the "MSM" look even more foolish than we already know they are..

had it's chance with Ron Paul and the establishment went out of their way to make sure he wouldn't have a chance in hell. they stopped at nothing. however spreading his libertarian message of peace, personal liberty and sound money is what me and my friends are doing. it's long term thinking until there is a tipping point. could it happen sooner? sure, events could force it, just like events could force the opposite. i just don't see RB as significant. i prefer to listen to and read rockwell, johnson, woods, ventura etc etc.

Hey man, at least he's appealing to a different crowd

We can't do everything but we can all do something.

To me the tipping point has already passed the point of no return. There is no going back to sleep for anyone who is awake and waking up is generally a one way street. You may snooze once or twice but eventually you get the smack in the face and never look back at "the dream".

Russell Brand is waking young people who like his sort of entertainment—his fan base. I really haven't heard any other person of such celebrity speak so passionately and OPENLY about these REAL issues before. This is more evidence of the passing of the tipping point. It's all being absorbed by the collective consciousness we have achieved thanks to the internet.

The Powers That Were have lost this battle already. Now it's only a matter of quickening momentum of Change and of Truth.

Remember our individual Liberty, my friend. We all have our parts to play. Few choose to actually play them. Let's give RB some credit for doing his part.

hey man yourself

nobody said anything about going to sleep. quit trying to put words in my mouth just because
you have a RB crush. you think he will be some great help to the freedom movement. i don't. if you can't accept that not everyone is going to agree with you, you are setting yourself up for more grief. in my opinion we are no where near the tipping point, but listening to ron paul and like minded men of integrity gives me some optimism. there is a movement against NSA currently, one video done all by celebrities, RB is missing, maybe he had something more important to do like change his nail polish. If RB wants a socialist system, why doesn't he start by redistributing some of his own wealth? he turned in his gun because of sandy hook. there's another socialist message for his fans to follow.

Have a nice day

nice closer from a "spiritual being" LOL

1. Have a Nice Day
A sarcastic spin on the common phrase. It is what you tell someone when they get in your way or are making you unhappy. It was originated by Bon Jovi in 2005, and coincides with the red, box-shaped, smirk...a spin on the popular yellow smiley face.
"When the world gets in my face, I say...Have a Nice Day!!"

2. have a nice day
When used in Britain, this phrase actually means "Fuck You"
Have a nice day! *followed by the up yours two fingers*

-Urban Dictionary

I simply meant it as it is written

Clearly there is no reason for me to express my opinions of the benefits of someone like Russell to someone who only sees the negatives (even where there aren't any), especially when they are insignificant compared to the abundance of relevant topics Brand brings up in this video.

If I wanted to say "Go F yourself" I would, but I see no reason to do so just because we are at odds.

Have a pleasant evening. Really.

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience"—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

no i'd say

it was more #1

if you wanted to end this on a gentlemanly note you could have done far better and we both know it. 99% of the time, especially in a debate, that phrase is said with at the very least a sense of sarcasm. (this is common knowledge) you don't know me, how could you say it with sincerity?

i'd say it's time for you to brush up on your ninja moves.

russell's book btw is called MY BOOKY WOOK, but you probably already know that and have the T-shirt and poster too.

Why should I need to know you to wish you a nice day?

Maybe I'm just trying to be one less a**hole out there? Sort of why I see more eye to eye with RB. Haha no, I haven't read the booky and I didn't know t-shirts and posters of books were trending. Interesting.

The gentlemanly thing to do was to wish you a good day, which I did, along with a good evening. For whatever reason, you decided to dig up some urban definitions and slang in foreign lands to convince yourself I could not have simply wished you well rather than go down a spiralling mess of endless verbal distraction.

Yeah, you know what, there ARE just NICE people out there trying to have a conversation with others of like interest and mind. If you prefer to stoop to juvenile insults, that's fine. It is only a reflection upon yourself. I'd rather have a meaningful conversation about things relatable and perhaps you do as well.

But that's up to you, I don't know you, after all.

My ninja mov—

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience"—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

yeah sure, as long as everybody

agrees with you.

"The lady (Ninja) doth protest too much, methinks."

You got me.

You figured me out. That is why I exist: to seek agreement with everyone I encounter.

Well, I guess we're all done here.

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience"—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

since you've written that

you were sincere in wishing me a nice day, i'm going to take you at your word, and assume this latest reply of yours was written with the same good will in mind. i am more than happy to help you on your spiritual quest: different strokes for different folks is a valuable lesson to learn; and don't be shy if you have any other questions.


Wow, this exchange was ridiculous. Ninja's trying not to be a turd and you just keep pushing Dave. Are you just bored??

you're the one

butting into a conversation that is long over and ended amicably.

if anyone is bored it's you.

why can't certain individuals mind their own business? usually because they have no business of their own to mind.

Thank you.

I'll keep that in mind.

Jim Goad's take on Russell Brand

Brand is said to be a comedian, though I have found no evidence that he has ever made anybody laugh. This rancid piss-mop is becoming a hit among the more retarded segment of the US population, as evidenced by his recent gig as host of the MTV Awards. He is a former heroin addict, booze addict, and sex addict. His wiki page states that he has been arrested 11 times for indecency. I can't imagine Brand as having an easy stay in the clink, but somehow he survived. Whether it was the swarm of flies that are his constant companions or his size 12 butthole that kept him safe from attack, I cannot say. Unfortunately for us, he was not gutted with a plexiglass shank or drowned in a steel toilet. This fuckhead lived to be unfunny another day.

I could go on, but I will stop myself. Just one look at should be enough to convince you that he is deserving of a slow, painful death.

With any luck, he will nod out while using his hair dryer and melt his punky face off.
-Jim Goad


Who is the psycho that wrote that?!?!

you my friend

are obviously devoid of any sense of humor.

I don't

I don't laugh at evil. But yes, even Hitler is deserving of respect, I don't believe in their hearts that anyone is better than anyone else.


your idea of evil is over the top, humor i'd say you've led a very sheltered life, or have a very confused mind, or both.

if a man goes out and tortures cats, and you say you respect him because he's human, i'd say you are just as mentally disturbed as he is.


You can say what you want, but I'm taking a cue from a higher power, as Christ hung on a cross being murdered he prayed for those murdering him, "Father forgive them, they know not what they do." I have to try my best to abide by that example.

If I was a naturalist, ha, well all bets are off. I'd be misanthropic to the point of being quite dangerous.

I think only one of the two options I've just mentioned is even possibly logical. So I have to go with the logical one and try my best to live by it. Atheism and naturalism being totally unlivable as a real philosophy. So say what you'd like about me in terms of respect, but I will respect YOU none the less. Ha.

you might want to come down off your cross for a minute

and learn the meaning of words you so flippantly toss around.

a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements.

No thanks

No thanks Dave, I quite like the view from up here.

I know the definition of respect, got a dictionary a couple decades ago. Ha.

let's forget all this nonsense


I really would like to watch that video and probably will, but let's not forget how this started. I'm no Russell Brand fan. His politics are awful. He's a socialist and that makes me pukey. Gross, I'm a liberty advocate. I'm glad he hates our current government, but he's calling for the same government, only more FASCIST to be put in place. That is ridiculous. My contention is only that I'm glad he hates our current government and hope he wises up and comes to understand Liberty. To go all out and cuss and curse at him and call him names like retard, would only make me sound like an idiot.

Just watched the Schiff video, he makes good points as always, I love this guy, but as with most radio show rants, that's what radio shows are, ha, they give themselves too much rope and end up hanging themselves because they have to talk long enough to fill the space and they don't usually have more than a couple points. I'm amazed that people listen to shows like this, they're so boring.

what's boring to one

is exciting to another. just like humor: what's amusing to some may be way lame to someone else. that's what makes the world go round. we are both liberty advocates although we are not cookie cutter replicas, although we may end up standing side by side in the final days of the revolution. as i believe i pointed out elsewhere, and even some of your comments made me think, we may be on the same page on this one: "it's going to be a long time coming." the trick: never give up.


you haven't read THE REDNECK MANIFESTO


You got me. Guess I'm not well read, but if it reads like that, I have a feeling I won't be checking it out any time soon. Ha. Sad stuff.

your loss

The Redneck Manifesto: How Hillbillies, Hicks, and White Trash Became America's Scapegoats
by Jim Goad

Culture maverick Jim Goad presents a thoroughly reasoned, darkly funny, and rampagingly angry defense of America's most maligned social group -- the cultural clan variously referred to as rednecks, hillbillies, white trash, crackers, and trailer trash. As The Redneck Manifesto boldly points out and brilliantly demonstrates, America's dirty little secret isn't racism but classism. While pouncing incessantly on racial themes, most major media are silent about America's widening class rifts, a problem that negatively affects more people of all colors than does racism. With an unmatched ability for rubbing salt in cultural wounds, Jim Goad deftly dismantles most popular American notions about race and culture and takes a sledgehammer to our delicate glass-blown popular conceptions of government, religion, media, and history.


With so much hate in their writing is of no interest to me.

Hate Explains Everything

HATE SPEECH is the most Orwellian concept to emerge from the twentieth-century twilight. It is especially deceptive because it hides behind a Happy Face mask. Most people want to be on the side of love, right? Like all dangerous ideas, the notion of hate speech sounds good until dismantled piece by piece. The first problem is with the term’s vagueness. Hate speech, apparently, has become anything they hate. Through relentless exposure to well-meaning, soft-suds imagery, otherwise intelligent people have been brainwashed to believe that "hate" is a satisfactory explanation for any human action. Reducing complex sociopolitical struggles to a matter of "hate" is as simplistic as blaming it on "sin," but they fall for it.
