Russell Brand Believes Aliens May Be Gods

Some people consider Russell Brand to be a comedy god. Others consider the man who claims to have bedded 1,000 women to be a sexual god. Russell Brand would probably disagree (reluctantly) with both because he considers aliens to be gods and he’s not an alien. Or is he? After all, his popular 2013 comedy show was called “Messiah Complex.” Does Brand know something we don’t … or is this just another celebrity ploy for publicity?

“He says it ain’t advanced human tech, there is s**t in there that defies the laws of physics. The [US] government have known about it for ages and they are slowly making these releases.”

In an interview with The Mirror, Brand reveals that his enlightenment on the subject of aliens came after becoming friends with Jeremy Corbell – the now famous documentary filmmaker who has been slowly releasing U.S. government videos of military encounters with UFOs – encounters that the government admits it cannot explain. In the U.S., when in doubt about a subject of this magnitude, we turn to comedians and talk show hosts, so it’s no surprise that the British are doing the same with Brand, who is not only a comedy performer and media star but also a controversial and outspoken political activist.

“It is not a distraction from Covid, it is happening because there is no choice because there has been a whistleblower situation where a bunch of data is being released.”

Brand credits Corbell for pressuring the Pentagon to reveal more videos and forcing them to comment on them. At that point, he naturally turns the story back to himself.

“So it seems to me that life is out there somewhere with crazy creatures and new cultures that will come to you shortly.”

“New cultures” implies higher forms of intelligent life and, while he says they’re coming shortly, he believes they’ve “been communicating with us for years.” However, the big shocker is that Brand follows the ancient aliens theory that these communications  influenced earlier humans enough to make them believe they were coming from “gods.” Is that a good thing or a bad thing, Russell?

“If you don't choose heroes, heroes will be chosen for you, and they will not represent values that empower you, they will represent powers that will enslave you.”

Brand may have given us the answer in “Messiah Complex.” Perhaps early humans chose to make heroes or gods out of the mysterious beings communicating and possibly even inspiring them rather than the human leaders who were out to enslave them.

Far-fetched? Have you watched the news lately?

Russell Brand is certainly not someone many would consider to be a hero, a god or even just a wise sage. Then again, a sizeable portion of Americans admit they’d rather get their news and guidance from late night talk show hosts who are usually comedians. Is it time to start getting our UFO and extraterrestrial guidance from them as well?

We could do worse … and have.
