UK Parliament Asks If Rumble Will Demonetize Russell Brand — Rumble CEO Responds

Russell Brand is the #MeToo movement’s latest villain, and in the wake of multiple sexual assault allegations that suddenly appeared earlier this week, YouTube suspended monetization of his accounts Tuesday.

That’s par for the course with YouTube, really, and no one was surprised. But that wasn’t enough for one British Member of Parliament, Dame Caroline Dinenage, who chairs the Culture, Media, and Sport Committee in the House of Commons.

Dinenage, on behalf of her committee, wrote to Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski asking whether Rumble was going to follow YouTube’s lead and suspend monetization of Brand’s account, noting that Brand had posted his pre-emptive message regarding the allegations to Rumble.

The whole letter is just beyond the pale, but this line gives me chills:

While we recognise that Rumble is not the creator of the content published by Mr Brand, we are concerned that he may be able to profit from his content on the platform.

Just for the sake of argument, assume that Brand ends up criminally charged in one or more of the instances complained of. Should the government be preventing him from having the ability to pay for attorneys for his defense? Obviously, that’s a big no.

Rumble published their reply on Twitter/X, and reminded Dame Dinenage that we are not in the United Kingdom and that here in the United States we do things a little differently. Well, at least some of us still do things a little differently.

As my friend Senia, a podcast producer for some pretty prominent conservative pundits, said, “The UK parliament can f**k right off.”

Our own Brandon Morse also captured the mood perfectly.

    Everyone who speaks out against the elitist are being, falsely prosecuted for all kinds of things these days. And it so blatantly obvious. They’re not even trying to hide it. As long as the leftist have the media in their pockets working for them, it seems like there’s nothing stopping them from taking over and destroying anyone, and everyone in their way. The media is a danger to freedom these days.

    Guilty until proved innocent. Someone needs to accuse these sobs and bobs of sexual misconduct and kick them out of their jobs until they can prove themselves innocent of the social media charges since trial by accusations is what they think is ok.

    The truth is, The UK just doesn’t want Russell telling the world what a vicious bunch are currently running the show in the UK.
