In September 2021, British comedian turned YouTube host Russell Brand stunned the liberal blogosphere with his video titled “Trump was RIGHT About Clinton & Russia Collusion!!”
“Russell Brand, an actor typically known for his more liberal political opinions, is starting to lean heavily into right-wing conspiracies on his YouTube channel, leaving fans flummoxed and upset,” said a writer at a left-leaning media site, The Wrap.
He’s done it again.
In a new video, Brand took aim at the head of the World Economic Forum Klaus Schwaband leaders of big pharma. In often hilarious fashion, he called out these masters of the universe for their disingenuousness.
The video featured Brand commenting on a discussion between Schwab and Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla that occurred during the WEF annual meeting on May 25 in Davos, Switzerland.
“You’re able to watch an agenda being established at a WEF conference in real-time,” Brand told his viewers.
“This is a demonstration of how power operates, or at least non-official power. It’s not concealed.” Referring to his previous interview with NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, Brand paraphrased, “‘The worst conspiracies are … things that you can see. You’re being spied on, everything’s run economically, regulation is set from centralized organizations.’ You can watch it happen, they’re [Schwab and Bourla] having a conversation on the bloody telly.”
But “they don’t call it conspiracy, they call it cooperation.”
Brand elaborated on how lucrative the COVID-19 vaccine has been for Pfizer. It was a literal cash cow for the company in 2021 and continues to be. Pfizer reported total 2021 revenue was $81 billion versus roughly $42 billion in 2020.
Brand added, “Is that too much profit to make during a period of international crisis? … And if an international crisis is really good for the most powerful interests in the world, do you worry about international crises starting to be regarded as a positive thing?”
