Russell Brand questions why freedom-loving Americans would choose to vote for Biden over Trump in upcoming election.

Impeachment trial

Brand discusses Trump’s impeachment trial and verdict in upcoming podcast episode with Elizabeth Pipko.

Personal views

Brand shared personal views on election in exclusive clip obtained by Fox News. “In a straight choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, if you care about democracy, if you care about freedom, I don’t know how you could do anything other than vote for Donald Trump for precisely the reasons that they claim that you can’t,” he told Pipko.

Donald Trump

“They act as if a vote for Donald Trump is almost like you’re directly voting for Armageddon, like you see hysterical performances outside of courtrooms, endless MSNBC bombast,” Brand said.

Starting to think

“But I’m starting to think that no, a greater threat to democracy is this kind of technological feudalism, that tells you that it cares about you and that it’s protecting vulnerable people, all the while increasing censorship, increasing the funding of wars, increasing the division between ordinary Americans.”

Hailing from England

Hailing from England, Brand, a staunch advocate against censorship, expressed his concern over the contempt and “snobbery” displayed by liberals towards Trump supporters. He criticized Trump opponents for demonizing the former president through the “weaponization of the legal system.”

A long time

“For a long time, Elizabeth, I’ve been concerned about the snobbery and the contempt and condemnation in which people that support Donald Trump are plainly held by his detractors,” Brand said. “And this is while you have an administration that’s emulating his policies, plagiarizing from Donald Trump, while simultaneously criminalizing him from the weaponization of the legal system.”

The idea

“The idea of this… Orwellian nightmare continuing all the while they’re telling you that they’re helping you, is a far greater threat than their constant portrayal of Trump as a mad strongman figure, a kind of twenty-first century reiteration of the despotism of the last century,” Brand said. “For me, what we are facing now is a bigger threat than that.”

Independent presidential candidate

The actor recently featured independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. on his podcast and took the stage to perform at a campaign rally for Kennedy in Nashville just last month.

Extensive criticism

Brand has previously voiced extensive criticism towards the “liberal establishment” for excessively emphasizing minor distinctions between themselves and those on the right. He has argued that this group has been “co-opted by the same financial and military interests” historically linked to the right-wing.

Previously criticized

Brand has previously criticized the “liberal establishment” at length for, in his words, a “fetishization of small differences” between themselves and their right-wing counterparts, arguing in the past that they have become “co-opted by the same financial and military interests” historically associated with the right.

Renowned actor

The renowned actor, known for creating in-depth content covering a range of subjects such as news, politics, culture, and spirituality, made headlines after revealing his conversion to Christianity and receiving baptism.

Recent statement

In a recent statement, he observed a growing trend of people turning to faith as the contemporary world seems to lack significance. He went on to critique the declining moral standards and institutions.

Interest in Christianity

“People are so cynical about the increasing interest in Christianity and the return to God, but to me, it’s obvious,” Brand said. “As meaning deteriorates in the modern world, as our value systems and institutions crumble, all of us become increasingly aware that there is this eerily familiar awakening and beckoning figure that we’ve all known all of our lives, within us and around us.”
