    I'll leave you with these incredible words by Russel Brand on the subject of today's mass shooting:



    PS - For a guy that used be be a mix of junkie and stupid, this guy certainly came a long way.

    He has been a subtle peddler of COVID conspiracy theories and anti-vax rhetoric during the pandemic. I'm not sure he's the best person to be talking about human life and protection of it.

    I used to kinda like him before that, though.

    Thanks for sharing

    Normally I am not a fan of his way of sharing the news, but this one (the first few minutes I listened) I liked:)

    He defends that all sides should be considered, different professional opinions should be heard and decisions shouldn't be made based on the pockets of the pharma industry and political interests alone. I think he made some very good points.

    From what I've seen, he usually frames things in that way, but a lot of what he suggests is either scientifically inaccurate or based on some truth mixed with hyperbole and fearmongering.

    I get why some YouTubers and content creators do this (since it generates a lot of views and reactions), but I find it irresponsible all the same. It's another reason I don't listen to YouTubers or other laypeople as authorities on highly specialized topics like medical care and vaccination.

    He's turned into just another right wing nut job spouting a lot of conspiracy theories mixed in with facts

    He's always been a spacecake. I wouldn't say right-wing though. Just a bit flaky.

    No. He openly sources everything he says in his videos.

    I've watched plenty of his videos he talks mostly right wing crap with a few left wing ideas added for supposed credibility, he's a nut job, attention whore
