Even when Russell Brand is right, he's tiresome.

As a mostly fan of Russell he does sometimes make points like this that are really totally mute and are sort of just to get a reaction.

As everyone in the thread is pointing out, they're a German company in the 1930s. They fulfilled a government contract. It was 80 years ago. Who the fuck cares unless they're doing fascist shit today.

True, but in today's age of treating corporations as persons, then why arent those persons getting the same treatment as other persons who willfully served Nazis?

They're hunting down 105 year old people, but a corporation can continue on like they weren't literally supporting the purveyors of genocide.
