Comedian Russell Brand used his web series The Trews to blast Fox News’ Sean Hannity for “using intimidation, bullying” and overall hypocrisy during a segment in which the conservative host berates a pro-Palestinian guest about Israel’s offensive on Gaza.

In response to a totally reasonable press release by the Council on American–Islamic Relations, which asked that American taxpayer funds not go toward killing innocent people in Gaza, Hannity wondered, “Why is America’s largest Muslim so-called civil rights group showing sympathy to terrorists? Let’s have a debate.”

Russell Brand notes that Hannity was “already being unreasonable” in how he was framing the “debate,” adding that the Fox host “wants conflict” rather than peace between Israel and Palestinians.

“Sean’s not interested in truth,” Russell Brand concluded, saying, “Hannity is only interested in pushing a particular perspective.”

In his so-called debate, Russell Brand said, Hannity “remov[ed] all context, except for the information that’s relevant” to him and to Fox News.

“Another thing Sean does is just use incendiary words. ‘Rockets!’ ‘Kidnapper!’ ‘Murder!’ ‘A little baby duckling kicked in the face!’ These are just things that are bad.”

This isn’t the first time Russell Brand has labelled Fox News “terrorists”. In fact, he called the station a “fanatical terrorist propagandist organization” in a charged rant on Iraq at the end of June.

The three-week Israeli military offensive in Gaza has so far killed over 1,444, with more than 8,350 wounded. Sixty-four Israelis, nearly all of them soldiers, have died since Israel launched its offensive against Gaza on July 8.

Russell Brand ends his segment of The Trews pointing out that in the process of angrily denouncing Hamas as “terrorists” while ignoring Israel’s mighty, Western-backed military qualifications, Hannity was “using intimidation, bullying, being unreasonable” to shout his guest down.

“One definition of terrorism is using intimidation to achieve your goals,” Russell Brand says. “Who in that situation was behaving like a terrorist?”
