British comedian Russell Brand has blasted Microsoft Bill Gates for hypocritically lecturing the public and told the billionaire to “stop telling us what to do.”
Brand put Gates in his place during a recent episode of “Stay Free.”
He said: “I got no particular thing against Bill Gates but he does represent a certain mentality: ‘I’ll do what I want to do, you do what I want you to do.’
“That’s the Bill Gates way.”
“On the surface, it looks like Bill Gates does what he wants and justifies it afterward.
“But I must be too stupid to understand what’s really going on,” Brand jokes.
He said earlier:
“It seems like years ago that we were hearing that Trump was colluding with Russia, that he wouldn’t have won the election without Russia, that his whole presidency was kind of a Putin plot.
“We have to recollect just how prevalent this story was.
“Every late-night talk-show, all over the news, it was just — you were bombarded with it.
“And it was like, being sort of in a way discussed as if it was just an absolute fact.
“To discover that this was propaganda, a construct, a confection by the Democratic Party, who, of course, are now in government, is kind of beyond disappointing, because you begin to question and query what other things may not be true.
“Once you recognize that people create certain truths in order to meet certain ends and aims, the idea that you might be able to trust their integrity obviously dissolves.”
Brand said he agrees that the Democrats should stand for “diversity and truth and social justice,” but cautioned his audience to avoid political blindness and see past those issues:
”What my concern is becoming, is that these are totemic issues pushed to the forefront to mask ordinary, regular corruption.”
