I stopped watching MTV years ago when it mutated from being an actual music video channel to a dysfunctional ‘social commentary’ outlet, with the “Real World” and that awful Rap shit.
I found out about this latest anti-American hatefest via other bloggers like Michelle Malkin.
This year, MTV chose an Irish ‘comedian’, Russell Brand, to host the 2008 VMA. On cue, he gave the requisite Bush Derangement speech barely a few minutes into the opening monologue.
BRAND: “Now, as a representative of the global community and a visitor from abroad, I don’t want to come across a little bit biased, but could I please ask of you people of America, to PLEASE ELECT BARACK OBAMA. Please! On behalf of the world. (Camera pans to singers Chris Brown and Britney Spears applauding and cheering.) Some people, I think they’re called racists, say that America is not ready for a black president. But I know America to be a forward-thinking country, right. Because, otherwise, you know, would you have let that retarded cowboy fellow be president for eight years?
We were very impressed. It was nice of you to let him have a go. Because in England, George Bush wouldn’t be trusted with a pair of scissors.
I am obliged by broadcasting law to show some balance in this situation, which means, uh, the Republicans might be alright. Sarah Palin. She’s a VILF! A vice president I’d like to…fumble, fondle, I dunno. I do feel a little bit sorry for her daughter, getting pregnant, poor kid. Is it a boy? Is it a girl? It’s a P.R. stunt. Come on. Be honest.
And I feel most sorry for that poor teenaged father. Boy. One minute, he’s just a teenaged lad in Alaska having joyful, unprotected sex. And the next minute: Get to the Republican convention. I think that is the best safe sex message of all time. Use a condom or become Republican! …That boy will spend the rest of his life masturbating while wearing a condom…
…New music, new president, and brand new America. And you people deserve it after eight years of Bush. I promise you, you deserve it…
I know what we don’t deserve; an outlet for Brand to run his mouth in our country or the election of a socialist who shares the same nihilist views as he.
This is the same fucking idiot who got fired from his job as an MTV veejay in the U.K., for showing up dressed like Osama Bin Laden the day after the World Trade Center attacks in 2001.
To the credit of (some) MTV viewers, there’s been a bit of a backlash in the website comments:

Russell Brand not only embarrased all of America but he embarrased himself. I believe that one should be a citizen of this great country to have a say in how we run our democracy. His shots at Govenor Palin and her family were uncalled for. My friends and I looked forward to the VMA’s this year but couldn’t have been more dissapointed. Ideally by the disrespect shown by Brand. MTV dropped the ball on this one. I will no longer watch MTV anymore due to the lack of respect shown to some of its viewers.

mtv aka trash…I am going to exercise my first ammendment right, I was born in the USA, raised here & will die here.. MTV is PRODUCED BY IDIOTS & SUPPORTED BY Mindless Money Hungry IDIOTS & TRASH! Really, what were you thinking? Geez..You know I was thinking how unfunny that guy was when I was watching the promo trailer, I rest my case…Hiring that mouth piece of an untalented,unfunny comedian from another country telling me & everyone else who to vote for & insulting our President? Don’t insult our intelligence. Just another demise of our culture, which I have came to the conclusion that is what MTV is all about.. no class, just trash & supports trash, no intellectual substance at all not to mention no entertainment value! As far as the Jonas Brothers, I changed the station after the slander remark about my President & never turned it back..As I mentioned in a another post, I do not want an apology from anyone, it would be fake & these people are what they are & always will be, as for the sponsors…you do have a responsibilty! Wake-up People! BTW… that mouth piece you call a comedian can be shipped back to his country to make a living & save his views & slander remarks for his own country..NOT MINE!! Good-Bye MTV.. again..RTP!

Morons, what were you thinking? Did you honestly think that we would just roll over and accept the political BS you tried to shove down our throats on the VMA’s with that Brit Ahole. It’s ad enough Americans are trashing our leaders (good or bad) in front of the world, we certainly don’t need some foreign idiot like Brand acting as your surogate to express your political views. I think you can see by the other blogs that you gravely miscalculated your audience. If this is the kind of Rabid leftist agenda I can expect from Obama supprters, then McCain/Palin is the way I’m going. Good job idiots.
It’s not like MTV didn’t know about this assclown’s reputation for lunacy.
His resume includes:
Brand is a self-proclaimed anarchist. He’s been arrested for public nudity, been fired more times than a human cannonball, been attacked by audience members at a comedy gig, and performed some unspeakable acts in the name of entertainment. He was once even beaten up by the security staff at his own gig, and managed to get himself arrested in the process.
Note to Brand: Fuck you and the Eurotrash cesspool you came from. I’m ashamed to even think that my Irish heritage includes the likes of a mealy-mouthed piece of shit who came all the way to America just so he could tell us how ‘superior’ he thinks Europe is compared to our country.
During my 30 year Army career, I spent the better part of 10 years in Europe. They’re nothing but a bunch of pusillanimous effetes who prefer to let the United States do the heavy lifting while they fulfill their ‘role’ as a backseat driver.
Check out the rapid Dhimmification of your continent. The acquiescence of Britain, in particular, to the whims of a rabid, Islamofascist movement using bombs and your legal system as leverage to intimidate and force their ‘ways’ into your schools, courts, and personal lives.
Keep your fucking lectures to yourselves.
You’ve got all you can handle just being Europe.
