  • Fascist UK Government Going After Russell Brand...

    Don't dare go off the reservation...

    UK Parliament sends letters to social media platforms demanding demonetization of Russell Brand

    The UK Parliament has sent letters to TikTok and Rumble expressing concerns that comedian Russel Brand could be profiting off the platforms.

    "I am writing concerning the serious allegations regarding Russell Brand, in the context as a user of TikTok with more than 2.2 million followers on the platform," the letter to Theo Bertram, TikTok Director of Government Relations, Europe, began.

    The following day after TikTok was sent the letter, Rumble received a similar letter from Dinenage, noting Brand’s 1.4 million followers on the platform, and asking whether Rumble "intends to join YouTube in suspending Mr. Brand’s ability to earn money on the platform."

    Rumble is refusing to comply with the demand. Good for them!

      Yes, but the UK is trying to destroy this man's ability to earn.

        So they are 'convicting' him without any sort of trial? This is cancel culture gone way out of control.

              Seems like every day they prove over and over what a good idea our forefathers had when they rebelled, and gave us our Constitution.

                I don't know anything at all about Brand; I am familiar with his name but that's about all. However, I can tell from the Dinenage letter and Rumble's response that he must be a conservative, or at least a critic of one or more sacred-cow Leftist causes.

                This is becoming a thoroughly Leftist strategy to starve and silence their opponents. I bet they are all salivating for the Orwellian future where they can just have them shot.

                  Don't be absurd. The Right is guilty of trying to silence people as much, if not more than the Left.

                  Case in point: The politician who sent the OP letter demanding Russell Brand be demonitized on social media is a Right wing politician.

                    I haven't heard anything past the headlines - that Russell Brand is being credible accused, by multiple women, of serious crimes. But it strikes me as really strange to demonetize his social media accounts as a result.

                    Demonetization seems like it should at least wait until he's actually found guilty, and probably not even then. If he's guilty of sex crimes, it's the government / judicial system's job to punish him, not social media companies.

                      Welcome to the world of "Consequence Culture" and #metoo. Accusations are enough for the Mob, and the accused has no rights before them. The disturbing part is the government trying to outsource to the mob.

                        Far less than the Left.

                        What you consider right-wing out in the netherlands is Leftist in the US. From what I am now reading about Dinenage, she is a supporter of big government; "free" childcare, and regulations ("That is why, from April this year, we are requiring all employers with more than 250 staff to publish those gender pay gap figures.") and pork (Following the outbreak of COVID-19 in the UK, Dinenage helped secure the 2 billion Culture Recovery Fund). She would hardly be considered conservative in this country.

                          What I am reading about Brand, he is (now) conservative and a Trump supporter. That alone is reason enough for the Left to want to silence him. In Britain, I don't know what he did to aggravate their deep state.

                            You can think that if you like. However it's not the US left who's made allegations against him, nor the US left who's sending the letter asking social media to demonetize him. The allegations against him were dug up by two Murdoch-owned outlets, on the UK right. And it's a UK conservative party politician who's asking he be demonetized.

                            In Britain, I don't know what he did to aggravate their deep state.
                            Someone directly elected by the populace like a member of parliament who wrote the letter, or a congressperson, is not the 'deep state'.

                            Far less than the Left.
                            Total tripe. The Right is, and always has been, vastly more into cancelling people than the left ever has. The left's best efforts on the subject look like child's play compared to things the right wing has done.

                              - Demand vs question
                              - left-wing vs right-wing
                              - the government vs the people
                              - the Netherlands vs New Zealand
