Interesting Russell Brand link

I saw him recently in two places, the "Morning Joe" clip, and the Westboro Baptist Church bit on his show which was rather less enjoyable.

Anyway what he said in this video was "To take a risk and to take a stand, knowing that in all likelihood you will be persecuted, penalized, demonized, and punished for it, that is incredibly bold."

This resonates with his appearance on Morning Joe, when he had enough of being mocked, and decided to do mock headlines, and the ones that he chose were Edward Snowden and Bradley Manning.

It makes more sense, after seeing this -- this likely took "some time" to produce so he had first said that line (whether given to him or created by him) at least a few weeks ago. So for his recent appearance to resonate with that line, well it makes sense.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. - Fully Informed Jury Association - Jin Shin Jyutsu (energy healing)
