Russell Brand Uses Robin Williams tribute to smear Fox News

Lidane is outraged over some stupid comment about Robin Williams’ depression being caused by an abortion that an ex girl friend had back in the 70’s.

Lidane outrage

As usual, the LGFers are in outrage mode. While they are angry over a stupid comment, they are hypocritically silent at Russell Brand using the death of Robin Williams to attack Fox News.

What platitudes then can we fling along with the listless, insufficient wreaths at the stillness that was once so animated and wired, the silence where the laughter was? That fame and accolades are no defence against mental illness and addiction? That we live in a world that has become so negligent of human values that our brightest lights are extinguishing themselves? That we must be more vigilant, more aware, more grateful, more mindful? That we can’t tarnish this tiny slice of awareness that we share on this sphere amidst the infinite blackness with conflict and hate?

That we must reach inward and outward to the light that is inside all of us? That all around us people are suffering behind masks less interesting than the one Robin Williams wore? Do you have time to tune in to Fox News, to cement your angry views to calcify the certain misery?

Russell Brand using the tragic suicide of Robin Williams to take cheap shots at Fox gets a pass by the always outraged losers at LGF. Then again, Brand is trash just like Lidane and the other losers at LGF.

    He’s an insufferable twit and Limey douchebag, but you have to admit Russell certainly has a way with words. My daughter had his book on vacation, and I read some of it — very impressive verbiage. Proving once again, that often the cleverest of writers possess the most superficial, glib understandings of the world, particularly in regards to political realities.

    This is something that escapes the grasp of many English Lit professors, btw, who are entranced by the genius of many great writers, yet unable to see the fool hiding behind the allusion and assonance. I read some of these guys now, as an adult with some experience in the real world behind me, and I have to snort at their delusions and prejudices. I can still enjoy a well-written novel if the author is a political twit, but it’s not a mark in their favor.
    See: Stephen King.

    • Al-Cheezeera says:

      Russell Brand is a douchebag troll who’d fit in at LGF…but even he would probably read about Chunky’s previous opinions and then disappear faster than one of those garbage bags full of Cheetos that he stockpiles.

  2. ISpeakJive says:

    Poor Lidane has the logic bass-ackwards once again.
    Nobody said the ONLY reason somebody can be depressed is because of an abortion.

    I thought LGF was anti-anecdote? All about facts and data? Not so much. Now it’s just an emotionally overwrought circle knee-jerk.

    • Octopus says:

      “Outrage Porn” is the only thing they’ve got now. It’s so lame.

    • Because prolifers are the ghouls says:

      By her logic then she should also be outraged at the suggestions that Williams was suicidal because of a) his sagging career and failed TV show, b) his financial situation, c) his drug addictions and d) the death of his brother 7 years ago. Are they not equally insulting and outrageous and diminishing to crushing depression? Oh right Progturd morons don’t have a dog in those fights. Must keep up the narrative that abortion = good.

      😆

  3. Octopus says:

    Wait…did he say the Redskins logo is a Blackfeet Indian? Oh, shit…that’s racist, too! 😆

    These Redskins Facts videos are pretty good, though. It’s nice to see someone standing up to the PC Po-Po, for once. It’s like Custer’s Last Stand for Daniel Snyder, with more arrows in him than St. Sebastian, but he’s rallying the troops behind the overturned wagons. They won’t get his scalp without a fight.

  4. Because sniff, sniff. I'm so glad I'm superior. says:

    Ha! Clown boy Brand is so impressed with his deep thoughts. Unfortunately to everyone else he’s barely coherent. For instance he first cites mental illness and addiction overpowering fame and accolades. Ah too bad Williams was sick. But then he says the world is to blame for William’s suicide. We’re too devoid of human values (what like radical Islam? No, conservatives I’m sure) that this brightest light saw fit to kill himself. He pleads that we reach inward and outward to the light that is inside us all (how do I reach outward to a light that’s inside me?). And then takes a big ungracious shit on Fox News and everyone who watches it. Just what you’d expect from a shallow mush brained filthy rich British Communist Hollyweirdo.

    • ISpeakJive says:

      Which is worse?

      I had to sell my $30 million dollar estate in Napa because I can’t afford it anymore without having to do Mrs. Doubtfire II.

      I had to bury my youngest child who died of starvation on a mountain top.

      Yeah, it’s real sad, Robin, et al. So fucking sad.

  5. Because I can't keep up with all these weirods says:

    Who’s Russel Brand?

    • OLT's Ironical Irony says:

      Call in Russell Brand. Surely he can explain the origin and meaning of the term “Bacchanal” to these (other over-educated yet unintelligent) douche-y twits.

      Cancelling a “Bacchanal” over sexual assault fears almost makes sense. Therefore it was an accident.

      Oh, and grievance groups? Taking away stuff from everyone to punish a few is what you always do, in actuality. Grow up, smell your victories, and own them.

      • Because back-anal says:

        You can’t criticize ‘Bacchanal’ without being a homophone. Or whatever. Now go shave your front and back bottoms.

      • OLT's Small, Factual Details says:

        I am NOT a saxophone. I keep telling you that!

  6. Because boo hoo people think I'm stupid so I'm calling them racists. says:

    The most horrible people in America. RT @AmandaMarcotte Twitchy is aiming a firehose of paranoid racists at me. twitchy.com/2014/08/13/ama…

    Must be in reference to this: http://twitchy.com/2014/08/13/amanda-marcotte-us-is-shameful-because-st-louis-single-moms-are-buying-guns-in-aftermath-of-ferguson-riots/

    It’s a day ending in “-day,” so Twitchy’s favorite super-feminist is outraged.
    This time she is furious at the eeeevil single moms and other St. Louis residents who are buying guns in the aftermath of the Ferguson, Mo., riots:

    Sales have quadrupled at ‘Metro Shooting’ in Bridgeton according to owner Steven King. He says sales have mainly been to men, but not all:
    “Probably a dozen or two dozen guns to females, single mothers. We’ve sold to black people, white people. We’ve sold to asians who have businesses on West Florissant.” said King. “They’re just afraid of whats going on and they’re coming in to purchase either additional firearms or their first firearm.”
    King says he’s personally seen the fear in their eyes and feels the sorrow in their hearts. King says he’s not raised prices but he knows that some are raiding their savings accounts, feeling that having a gun is that important.

    To recap: Single mothers, black people, Asian businessmen, and white people are buying guns to protect themselves from dangerous rioters and looters. To make matters worse, the gun retailers who are selling to these consumers are earning profits.
    The shock! The horror! The SHAAAAME! Follow @twitchyteam

    So who’s horrible Chunky Boo Hoo? The people trying to defend themselves against race rioters? The people making money selling them guns? The people defending their right? Just how big is your hypocritical Big Top Tent of Hate mister former proud owner of Mr. Mossberg?

  7. Arachne says:

    I don’t know if “live free or die” is around right now, but as a practicing professional in the field (I merely possess the erudition) I would be interested in her take on this. I was speaking to some colleagues at work who expressed a great deal of surprise that Williams was “depressed enough” to take his life. I offered that while I am gratified that we have removed so much of the stigma of the mono- and bi-polar disorders, I find it somewhat annoying that we have also made it seem less harmful to the psyche than it is. Severe depression can be so suffocating and oppressive that it destroys and yet we have that one commercial where someone suffering from it is followed around by an annoying cloud or cartoon ball. And they breeze by the words “if you have thoughts of suicide, consult your doctor.”

    The problem is, all too often, if you have thoughts of suicide you ACT on them, you do not consult your doctor.

  8. Octopus says:

    Oh, goodness! Hope the Twitchy firehose doesn’t replicate the insane success of the ol’ Reddit firehose, in driving way too many people to your site. Nearly crashed the server that day, when four people accidentally stopped by and ate up all the Cheetos…

    • OLT's Also Usually Pasty White, Tho Not Always says:

      It seems to be a pattern. Maybe I’m wrong, but the people who complain the most about “America” are always loaded with personal issues and perpetual outrage.

    • Arachne says:

      Marcotte is a bitch. Period. Check out the comments on her tweet.
      And Frankly, FATASS if you and Abortion Harpy don’t want blowback, maybe you should keep your vile bullshit to yourself.

      Only one of the replies to his silly tweet supported him – the others? Not so much. Look for STALKERS to go up soon.

    • Arachne says:

      Are you sure it’s just Twitchy, there, Sea Biscuit? Looks like you’re being roundly told off all over the internet at several times. But of course Chuck sooo wants Twitchy to notice him.

  9. Lidane if I looked like you I would be depressed too

  10. Because you mean donkey shine? says:

  11. OLT's Small, Factual Details says:

    Marcotte’s timeline shows around 19 replies, not all against her stupid opinion (although a majority are), and not a single racist comment.

    Some firehose. Then again, maybe she’s unfamiliar with anything big and hoselike.

    • Arachne says:

      Marcotte makes a living at being outraged. Oddly, she didn’t express any for the crimes of Gosnell.

      • OLT's That's Feminism Today says:

        Gosnell was cleaning up after PIV sex, which is all rape. He’s practically a martyr, except he’s just being persecuted rather than killed.

      • OLT's That's Feminism Today says:

        Hey, is “Marcotte” her patriarchal hegemony name???

      • OLT's That's Feminism Today says:

        She should change her last name to “Kill”, or “Hugginkiss”.

        Or “Vagina-Haver”. That one’s not bad; the hyphen is tres chic.

      • ISpeakJive says:

        OLT, I know, saw that too. Can you believe that PIV is violence shit?

    • ISpeakJive says:

      If you read her timeline she’s on team “all intercourse and PIV” ( had to look that one up) is rape.” All of it every time for all of one’s life.
      Also, tampons should be free and other such privileged naval-gazing musings of those afflicted by affluence and too much free time.
      Yuk.

  12. Juan Epstein says:

    Obdicut was Robin Williams once.

  13. Octopus says:

    OMG, I had no idea. I’m so sorry!

    This is just terrible. The whole world is one big rapefest, including the spider kingdom, and the Praying Mantis rapedome, where the females eat their puny male rapists after sex. They still got raped! It isn’t right.

    You women who think you want sex aren’t exactly helping the cause, either. Damn you evil succubi! You will no doubt enjoy the fourth paragraph of this manifesto of muffy martyrdom. You’re sick!

    PIV is always rape, ok?
    Published December 15, 2013 heterocage , men are violent 22 Comments

    Tags: giving birth, grooming, intercourse, PIV, rape, reproduction, reproductive harm, violence
    Just to recall a basic fact: Intercourse/PIV is always rape, plain and simple.

    This is a developed recap from what I’ve been saying in various comments here and there in the last two years or so. as a radfem I’ve always said PIV is rape and I remember being disappointed to discover that so few radical feminists stated it clearly. How can you possibly see it otherwise? Intercourse is the very means through which men oppress us, from which we are not allowed to escape, yet some instances of or PIV and intercourse may be chosen and free? That makes no sense at all.

    First, well intercourse is NEVER sex for women. Only men experience rape as sexual and define it as such. Sex for men is the unilateral penetration of their penis into a woman (or anything else replacing and symbolising the female orifice) whether she thinks she wants it or not – which is the definition of rape: that he will to do it anyway and that he uses her and treats her as a receptacle, in all circumstances – it makes no difference to him experiencing it as sexual. That is, at the very least, men use women as useful objects and instruments for penetration, and women are dehumanised by this act. It is an act of violence.

    As FCM pointed out some time ago, intercourse is inherently harmful to women and intentionally so, because it causes pregnancy in women. The purpose of men enforcing intercourse regularly (as in, more than once a month) onto women is because it’s the surest way to cause pregnancy and force childbearing against our will, and thereby gain control over our reproductive powers. There is no way to eliminate the pregnancy risk entirely off PIV and the mitigating and harm-reduction practices such as contraception and abortion are inherently harmful, too. Reproductive harms of PIV range from pregnancy to abortion, having to take invasive, or toxic contraception, giving birth, forced child bearing and rearing and all the complications that go with them which may lead up to severe physical and emotional damage, disability, destitution, illness, or death (See factcheckme.wordpress.com for her work on the reproductive harms of PIV, click on the “intercourse series” page or “PIV” in the search bar). If we compare this to even the crappiest online definition of violence: “behaviour involving physical force intended to hurt, damage, or kill someone or something”. Bingo. It fits: Pregnancy = may hurt, damage or kill. Intercourse = a man using his physical force to penetrate a woman. Intention / purpose of the act of intercourse = to cause pregnancy. PIV is therefore intentional harm / violence. Intentional sexual harm of a man against a woman through penile penetration = RAPE.

    If we look at the act in more detail (skip this parag if you can’t take it), PIV is a man mounting on a woman to thrust a large member of himself into her most intimate parts, often forcing her to be entirely naked, banging himself against her with the whole weight of his body and hips, shaking her like he would stuff a corpse, then using her insides as a receptacle for his penile dejection. How is this a normal civilised, respectful way to treat anyone? Sorry for the explicit picture, but this is what it is and it’s absolutely revolting and violating.

    The term “fuck you” is not an insult for nothing, men know why – it’s the worst thing you can do to a human being. It is in itself an extremely physically invasive act, very often painful, generally at the beginning before the pain may be cut off by the genital arousal; causes all sorts of tears, bruises, swelling, discomfort, STDs, vaginal infections, urinary infections, genital warts, HIV and death. Not to forget the additional sado-gynecological interventions/ costs of PIV-maintenance, and all the secondary physical mutiliation and financial costs that go with our duty to make ourselves look decorative for male sexual consumption – such as hair removal, make-up, starvation or forced feeding, torturous limb deforming or cutting up, etc.

    The fact intercourse causes so many infections and tears and warts attests to the unnaturalness of intercourse, that it’s not meant to be. The vagina’s primary function isn’t to be penetrated by a penis but to eject a baby for birth. They are two muscle tissues / sphincters pressed against each other to help the baby be pushed out. Penetration of the penis into the vagina is completely unnecessary for conception.

    There’s a reason men need to groom us into it, and why this grooming takes so long- because it’s so grossly violating and traumatising that we would otherwise never submit to intercourse. The only reason we may now not feel raped or have the impression we desired or initiated PIV, is because men broke down our barriers very skillfully and progressively from birth, breaking down our natural defences to pain and invasion, our confidence in our own perceptions and sensations of fear and disgust that tell us male sexual invasion is painful, harmful and traumatic.

    Through an all-pervasive and powerful male propaganda, they stuff our minds from infancy with the idea that PIV is normal, desirable and erotic, before we can even conceive of it as something horrifying, and make sure we never see any alternative to their lie – or that if we do, we can no longer take in the information, are punished for thinking and saying otherwise. The fact we may not immediately feel raped doesn’t mean it’s not rape, objectively speaking. To give a classic example, many women in prostitution may not identify the act of prostitution as rape, except if the act wasn’t paid for. It doesn’t stop us from saying that all prostitution is rape. We know that our subjective feelings or thoughts may be colonised by men’s perspectives and as radical feminists we don’t let that override and erase the objective reality of violence. (PS -The reason why ONLY the lack of payment is defined as rape is because the offence here isn’t against the prostituted woman but the pimp who was deprived of his income. Rape comes from rapt, which is an old word for theft of woman-as-property.)

    Lastly, from a structural point of view, as a class oppressed by men, we are not in any position of freedom to negotiate what men do to us collectively and individually within the heterocage. Men, by whom we are possessed, colonised and held captive, are the sole agents and organisers of PIV. Men dominate us precisely so we can’t opt out of sexual abuse by them; intercourse is the very means through which men subordinate us, the very purpose of their domination, to control human reproduction.

  14. Arachne says:

    Interesting development in Ferguson. McCulloch will not say how many times Brown was shot. I will hazard a guess that SOMEONE’s version of the events does not conform to the evidence. So yes, Fatass, there is probably a very GOOD reason they have not formally interviewed the so-called eye witness.

    Let me explain it to you, since you’re dumber than river rocks. You are not, as they say, working against the clock, gathering evidence trying to ascertain who did it. You KNOW who did it. You are not under pressure to find the perpetrator. You have a lot of people talking about the timeline/mechanics of the incident. Here’s a thought – how about you get all your incontrovertible FACT ducks in a row before you start calling in people for interviews. You DO not give them information that then allows them to conform their story to the facts.

    For instance, let’s say police office is in the chair and his story does not jib with the ME’s findings. He says he shot Mike Brown once as he was approaching; ME says no, he was shot twice and the wounds indicate that he had his hands up.

    By the same token, the eyewitness’s account may be at odds with the facts.

    http://cleveland.cbslocal.com/2014/07/28/teen-severely-burned-after-setting-himself-ablaze-for-facebook-fire-challenge/

    Lexington, Ky. (CBS CLEVELAND) – A 15-year-old in Kentucky suffered second-degree burns after rubbing alcohol on his chest and lighting himself on fire in imitation of popular Facebook and YouTube “Fire Challenge” videos.

    Lexington police said that officers were called to the 3600 block of Appian Way to assist a teenager who had burned himself after watching the “Fire Challenge” videos online, WYKT-TV reports. The teen, whose name was not given, mimicked the online videos by pouring rubbing alcohol on his body and then setting himself on fire.

    “Unbearable, yeah, basically,” said the teen who suffered second-degree burns. “Literally after it got put out it was already blistering, it’s just hard.”

    Videos of the “Fire Challenge” also show teens spraying themselves with aerosol cans before lighting portions of their body on fire in order to singe off their own hair. But the videos never show the physical aftermath of lighting one’s self on fire.

    “Just watching it and never seeing what ended and just being childish,” the teen said of his actions.

    One of the firefighters who took the teenager to the hospital said that the burns suffered by the boy will likely affect him for the rest of his life.

    “After getting a second or third degree burn later on in life if you get a sunburn it’s going to be compounded by these particular burns,” the emergency worker told WYKT.

    “You can get caught on fire and die, your house can get caught on fire, wherever you’re at can get caught on fire,” said the teen, cautioning others not to light themselves on fire for any reason.
