Watch: Russell Brand Says Establishment Lies Created Need For ‘Alex Jones’ Types
Actor Russell Brand posted a YouTube video Tuesday sharing his view on the recent jury decision to fine Infowars founder Alex Jones $50 million in a Sandy Hook-related lawsuit.
Brand started his message by acknowledging he disagreed with Jones’ retracted remarks about Sandy Hook before noting he agrees with him on many other subjects.
“I think as a figure, Alex Jones is more like a shaman or evangelical preacher,” Brand explained. “He operates on the periphery of a culture, telling you things that sometimes seems mad and hysterical, but many times – of course I’m not talking about this horrible example around Sandy Hook – but many times he’s been ahead of the curve.”
