This is quite a remarkable development. The Sunday Times, a Rupert Murdoch publication in the U.K, published a hit piece against Russell Brand accusing him of rape and sexual assault 20-years ago. It did not take long before the accusations triggered the cancel culture and YouTube demonetized the actor and pundit. Russell Brand has vehemently denied the allegations.

However, in a remarkable escalation the U.K Parliament is now targeting Russell Brand. The British government has sent a letter to U.S. video platform provider Rumble demanding they take action against Brand. Not only is the British government targeting an individual and demanding action over an unproven allegation, but they are also sending a letter to the U.S. company demanding acquiescence to their censorship demand.
Rumble has previously stood strong against the demands of the French government, and once again stands at the forefront of freedom in responding to the UK demand.
Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski responded to the U.K govt and shared his response on Twitter. “We emphatically reject the UK Parliament’s demands.”
In an era where social media are more than willing to crawl into bed with the censorship demands of government, looking at you Elon, it is refreshing to see a platform refuse to be pushed into a position of censorship.
Well done Team Rumble.
Now let’s ask why billionaire media mogul Rupert Murdoch is targeting opinions that might run against the official government narratives? I seem to remember someone warning about an increased effort to remove specific entities and platforms that will not adhere to official government positions. 👀
