Russell Brand Witch-Hunt Exposes #MeToo Psy-Op
Alternative media personality Russell Brand has been demonetized by YouTube. Mainstream media (MSM) wants to cancel him. Brand is being pummeled by MSM-hyped allegations of sexual misbehavior in the mid-2000s when he was a BBC presenter.
Brand’s antagonists are mainstream media companies, not police and prosecutors. He has not been charged with any crime. Like E. Jean Carroll, who accused Donald Trump of raping her almost 30 years ago (she couldn’t remember what year it supposedly happened) the women who say they willingly got into intimate situations with Brand, then experienced some form of boorishness or assault, never complained to police. Rather than being accused in timely fashion, tried in a court of law and judged by a jury of his peers, Brand is facing a grossly belated trial-by-media in which he is presumed guilty until proven innocent. His punishment—a besmirched reputation, loss of income, and career damage—arrived with the dubious accusations, and will likely prove irreversible.
Russell Brand’s encounter with the #MeToo inquisition (call it the #MeTooInquisition if you like hashtags) raises the question: Whatever happened to the presumption of innocence?
