Comedian Russel Brand went against his liberal roots to blast the media, Big Tech, and the Democratic Party for colluding to bury the Hunter Biden laptop story, so they could secure the Presidential election and get Trump out of office.
In an episode of his podcast, “Under the Skin,” Brand interviewed journalist Glenn Greenwald, who was fired from his own media company, The Intercept, after investigating President Biden’s connections to Chinese businesses.
“There were a lot documents that raised serious questions about whether Joe Biden, the person at the time running for president and likely to become the most powerful politician on earth, was intervening in Ukraine for the benefit of the company that was paying his son $50,000 a month for absolutely no reason other than to have influence with Joe Biden,” Greenwald remarked.
He told Brand that a few weeks before the election, it became apparent that “Silicon Valley monopolies” were censuring “authentic reporting” about the candidate they were supporting.
In a follow-up video to the interview, Brand posed some serious questions about Greenwald’s revelations. “What reason is Hunter Biden sat on the board of an energy company in Ukraine? What reason is James Biden sat on the board, or receiving payments from an energy company, in China?” Brand wondered.
He remarked that the connections between the foreign nations and the Biden family “are troubling,” and that they should be made public knowledge.
“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,” Brand went on. “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 knowledge has led Brand to lose his faith in both Biden and the Democratic Party. “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.”
He went on to explain that he’s more concerned about the information being stymied because it didn’t suit “the shared agenda of these three pillars of power,” than the revelations that were buried.
“The idea that information is being controlled — that’s not democracy, that’s not freedom, that’s manipulation of elections,” he continued. “If it were the other side doing that, the companies that are here implicated would be ecstatically propagating and proliferating that data.”
He darkly warned that the United States is beginning to mirror the Soviet Union. “Our depiction of places like communist Russia, the Soviet Union, as these draconian, malevolent places where you’re not free … it is also true here. The same thing is happening.”
