Actor Russell Brand: ‘Americans Concerned About Freedom and Democracy Should Vote for Trump’

British actor Russell Brand urged Americans concerned about freedom and democracy to cast their votes for former President Donald Trump this November.

“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 said in the latest episode of his podcast.

Russell Brand was interviewing RNC spokeswoman Elizabeth Pipko when the discussion shifted to Trump and the upcoming election.

“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.

“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.”

Brand also criticized the Biden administration for using the legal system as a weapon against its political opponents.

“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,” he continued.

The actor has first-hand experience with political retribution.

Brand has faced backlash from the #MeToo movement after his videos criticizing mainstream media, big pharma, and the military-industrial complex gained a large online following.

Several women have accused him of rape and other forms of sexual misconduct, prompting British police to open a sex crimes investigation.

The actor has denied the accusations.
