Russell Brand Jeanine Pirro Response Video … Comedian Calls Fox News ‘Fanatical Terrorist Propagandist Organization’ Following Judge’s Rant Against Barack Obama

Jeanine PirroFox News does not exactly have the best reputation as a cable news network. But when Russell Brand heard Judge Jeanine Pirro’s crazy opening monologue from her new show Justice, the comedian apparently decided he was “mad as hell and not going to take this anymore.” So Brand did what any posted a scathing video comparing Fox News to terrorist organizations.

This Russell Brand feud all started when Jeanine Pirro slammed Barack Obama for his efforts to combat terrorism. Among other things, Pirro claimed the President “didn’t have the balls” to try terror suspects at Guantanamo Bay. She then cited a report from the conspiracy website WorldNetDaily that claimed American forces were secretly training rebel troops from Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). And she certainly had a very interesting strategy for dealing with ISIS.

“Americans have shed enough blood there,” Jeanine Pirro said. “My resolution: air strikes. Bomb them! Bomb them! Keep bombing them! Bomb then again and again!”

Russell Brand then responded with a rant of his own. The comedian opined that Jeanine Pirro’s bombing strategy would only create more terrorists in the Middle East.

“When they do these bombings, it creates more insurgents, that’s what creates them,” Russell Brand said to Jeanine Pirro. “Don’t think of a bomb as going down there and destroying stuff, think of it as like a seed that goes into the ground, and grows insurgents out of it, it creates more terrorism, doing it.”

Russell Brand particularly took issue with Jeanine Pirro calling ISIS a “fanatical religious terrorist organization.”

“So is Fox News,  a fanatical terrorist propagandist organization,” Russell Brand said in his video. “This isn’t reasonable, is it? Like the way she’s talking? ‘Bomb them! Bomb them!’ She’s worse … She’s the savage, she’s totally espousing savage values.”

And Russell Brand eventually concluded that Fox News was “more dangerous” than ISIS.

“I’m not being just sensational, that is more dangerous than ISIS,” Russell Brand said of Jeanine Pirro’s rant. “That attitude. ‘Cause that’s far-reaching. That’s affecting millions and millions of people.”

For the record, Russell Brand is an equal-opportunity mocker when it comes to cable news networks. Last year, the comedian hijacked a segment on the MSNBC talk show Morning Joe. When the various hosts mocked him and called him by the wrong name, Brand took matters into his own hands, reporting the news himself and showing the workers how to do their job. Brand later claimed he planned to be polite until he encountered “rudeness from the crew” and realized the true nature of the show.

“When I landed in my chair, on camera, and was introduced to the show’s hosts – a typical trident of blonde, brunette and affable chump – it became clear that, in spite of the show’s stated left-leaning inclination, the frequency they were actually broadcasting was the shrill, white noise of dumb current affairs,” Russell Brand wrote about his MSNBC interview.

    Russell Brand is a silly child. Try your weasel juice in England Rusell.

    • LesleyVivien

      He already does, I’m afraid. I don’t know when he stopped being an unwashed comedian, and decided to open his big mouth about something he knows little or nothing about, but suddenly he is a source of sound-bytes for thousands of people who know just as little as he does. Quite depressing.

  • nqk123

    apparently, a majority of their viewers are 68+. I can’t wait for this slowly dying entertainment news to end. it won’t be long hahahaha.

  • bomb.them.all

    Does she realize how savage she herself sound? According to Jeanine Pirro you can bomb a whole country never mind the innocent victims that the bombings leave in it’s wake it doesn’t effect her and her privileged life style. Down with President Obama, go with Dictator Bomb Pirro she’ll show us how to get the job done correctly.

    The Laugh spin is on you Melissa. Perhaps ‘Fox News does not exactly have the best reputation …’ for you but the rating services are virtually unanimous in declaring: Fox News continues to be the hands-down ratings winner across the board
    in cable news. The network often posts better ratings than CNN and MSNBC
    combined.
    Whether you hate it or hate it, there it is.

    • Dog Standard

      Half it’s viewers watch it for either it’s comedic value or to hate it. Works for them I guess, but the people who believe it’s content are idiots. It’s not a news channel in fairness, it’s either the ultimate troll or the ultimate in ignorance. The latter is probably most true.

      • Katzenjammer

        Neither fair nor foul – there are only biased ‘news’ channels / MSM in the USA. Agitprop is the dominant order of the day; has been so for years, decades.

    • Professor Chill

      Katzenjammer is right! Justin Bieber is more popular than Beethoven, so his music is better. McDonalds has sold more than your fancy-shmancy “cuisine”, so their food is the best!
      “Whether you loathe it or hate it , there it is.” You can’t argue with Katzenjammer’s logic!

      • LesleyVivien

        Katzenjammer was only commenting on ratings, not quality.

  • itaintmojo

    Russell Brand should have stuck with comedy
    He is a fool for remotely comparing Jeanine Pirro to ISIS.
    ISIS are blood thisty butchers who hate America.
    Judge Jeanine has never hurt anybody and loves America.

    • Anthony Freeman

      She’s an evil cunt, just like he said. Some two-bit tv judge with fake tits is going to tell our president how to make foreign policy. Real American. Real stupid, which is becoming synonymous with American thanks to people like her and the mind-numbing propaganda they spew. Keep gulping down the right wing Kook-Aid, idiot. “She loves America” lol…I guess saying that you love America makes it okay to spread hate and war mongering. Fucking cunt.

      • itaintmojo

        Wow.

        ISIS literally kills people. Chopped heads and all.

        Judge Pirro has never hurt anyone. Just because you don’t agree with her does not make her what you called her.

        You have a distorted sense of values.

        And if you stick by king Obama then you support one of the biggest liars ever in politics. And seeing as all politicians lie that’s saying something.

        • Professor Chill

          itaintmojo is right! Jeanine Pirro has never hurt anyone! She’s only CALLING for people to be hurt. ISIS chops people’s heads off. Jeanine Pirro is only calling for their ENTIRE COUNTRY to be bombed. itaintmojo has the answers!

          • itaintmojo

            Sarcasm becomes you

            What’s say you, or Russell regarding ISIS recent decree to have four million females under their duristiction have their genitals mutilated by force of law? Huh?

            Comparing ISiS to PIrro? Wow.

      • testcase

        Your response is so typical of the knee-jerk hysteria of the left when confronted with well reasoned and well deserved criticism of Obama. The schoolyard name calling is a pretty silly way to try to defend your ‘position’, if it can even be called that. I can just see you stamping your little feet in anger.

      • JJ

        Freeman you are are a useful idiot for this criminal administration. Grow up and educate yourself.

      • Daiseymae

        You came out of a big loose one.
