UK comedian Jo Brand says, “throw acid at politicians instead of milkshakes”

Because battery acid attacks are hilarious! Just ask the Muslim women who are real victims of acid attacks.

How progressive and tolerant!

From The Sun: NIGEL Farage has accused comedian Jo Brand of “inciting violence” after she said politicians should have battery acid thrown at them instead of milkshakes.

The telly star, 61, was appearing on BBC Radio 4 when she joked about recent milkshake attacks on politicians, which included one hurled at the Brexit Party leader.

Farage, who had a banana and salted caramel Five Guys milkshake thrown on him while campaigning in Newcastle ahead of the EU elections last month, called for police to take action over ‘incitement of violence’.

Speaking on the Heresy show last night, Brand said: “Certain unpleasant characters are being thrown to the fore, and they’re very, very easy to hate. And I’m kind of thinking, why bother with a milkshake when you could get some battery acid?”

She added: “That’s just me, sorry, I’m not gonna do it, it’s purely a fantasy. But I think milkshakes are pathetic, I honestly do. Sorry.

Responding to that today Farage said: “This is incitement of violence and the police need to act.”

Brendan Cox, whose Labour MP wife Jo Cox was murdered by a far-right fanatic in her own constituency in June 2016, tweeted: “I dislike Nigel Farage‘s politics profoundly. But I don’t think throwing stuff at politicians you disagree with is a good idea. It normalises violence and intimidation and we should consistently stand again it.”

Broadcasting watchdog Ofcom confirmed it had received 19 complaints from angry listeners since the show was broadcast.

The sick gag was met with howls of laughter from the studio audience and show host Victoria Coren Mitchell didn’t appear concerned by the remarks.

Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan said: “Disgusting. This is an incitement for people to throw acid at politicians. Shame on you, Jo Brand.”

Leave.EU tweeted: “Absolutely disgusting remark by so-called “comedian” Jo Brand, who suggested last night on @BBCRadio4 that we throw battery acid at our politicians.

“Is this sort of hate speech what we fund the @BBC for? Shameful!”

But fellow comedians defended the star, with Lee Hurst writing: “Jo Brand is a comedian. She has made a joke. You may not find it funny or you may find it funny. Comedy is subjective. If you criticise her because you like her target, but defend other jokes of a similar nature against targets you don’t like you are a hypocrite.

The BBC refused to apologise for the broadcast and said remarks on the comedy show were ‘not intended to be taken seriously’.

A spokeswoman said: “Heresy is a long-running comedy programme where, as the title implies and as our listeners know, panellists often say things which are deliberately provocative and go against societal norms but are not intended to be taken seriously.”

Once again, we have yet even MORE PROOF that the hatred—100% of it—comes not from the Right but from the Left: Jo Brand, in her oh-so-veddy-British way, urges people to throw acid at political opponents. The Left CANNOT win one single argument with right reasoning, logic or facts, so they opt out for violence! Because, after all, violence is always right, You Know, as long as you win! Don’t hold your breath waiting for any social media platform to banish Brand for CLEARLY inciting violence. Look, instead, for sites like FOTM and Alex Jones to be banned! Look, instead, for… Read more »

When did comedians like Jo Brand, U.S. late-night TV hosts, and psychotic-psychopath actor Jim Carrey, become hateful instead of funny?

Ever since their owner’s passed out the script. Couple this with the leftist “media” that blasts hatred 24/7 and then has the nerve to blame Trump for doing it.

They are amazing. They spew nonsense and hatred and then feign being innocent victims of the whole thing. That’s Alinsky 101.

You have to be right Lophatt. I can think of no other explanation. It just boggles my mind that ALL of them seemed to be owned. Yeah I get the really famous ones that have been lifted to stardom etc, but who is this ugly man wench above? Is she really that famous? I’ve never heard of her. What I will never, ever be able to wrap my mind around is that there are so many who are willing to sell their souls. Stupid of me I guess, but I can’t even imagine in my wildest dreams trading truth for… Read more »

I have not seen anybody that ugly in my life time, she sure could use some acid to cleanse herself. People like that subject have no room on this Earth.
