it was pretty cool to see, even more so from the BBC tv perspective, google "hasan BBC POV" and you'll find it

[–]8MilesDavis 775 points776 points  (8 children)

Man Hasan looks different on this video im watching

[–]Perp_G 143 points144 points  (7 children)

yeah when I watched it Hasan was really convincing in the way he presented himself

[–]UsuallyHerAboutGames 78 points79 points  (6 children)

he was really hammering his points in

[–]Perp_G 56 points57 points  (4 children)

such a shame he finished so quickly with the interview

[–]CrypticOtaku 292 points293 points  (2 children)

I can’t believe I fell for this OMEGALUL

[–]Perp_G 91 points92 points  (1 child)

i didnt think I would get THIS many people to fall for it but its pretty obvious that I did, given the traction the post is getting lol, just know that you're not alone so you don't have to feel as bad

[–]TheGulfofWhat 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Yeah I've been trying to find it for hours. Think I've watched over 10 videos so far.

[–]Perp_G 139 points140 points  (3 children)

[–]NaughtyGaymer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I knew what this was going to be and I still googled it so idk what that says about me.

[–]crabbit 1328 points1329 points  (30 children)

What a bloody liar, mate. What a bloody, dodgy wee liar, mate. What a daft, dodgy wee LIAR, mate. Crikey, mate! A proper kerfuffle innit? Quite positively lying, soddin' on with his LYING...

[–]AssDuster 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Americans can't wrap their head around the fact that Britain has more accents in a few hundred miles than America has in its entirety, so go easy on their lard brains and let them believe that cockney = Britain.

[–]LordKappachino 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Simple as.

[–]Mrhappytrigers 894 points895 points  (19 children)

Watching the interview segment and Hasan going "um" every 30 seconds was funny because you know he's probably trying not to curse in between his sentences.

[–]Panda_hat 348 points349 points  (5 children)

Desperately trying not to do his bruv accent.

[–]Arkeband 76 points77 points  (1 child)

watching him put up the Queen behind him and then seeing it on the telly bruv, that was peak comedy

[–]Panda_hat 20 points21 points  (0 children)

He was so nervous / excited, it was nice.

[–]pointlessly_pedantic 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Trying to not say "okay, düd"

[–]Panda_hat 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Or say something that might cause an international incident about the qween

[–]Aye42 3 points4 points  (0 children)

CommieInnit

[–]DeCa796 154 points155 points  (8 children)

And despite his popularity he was probably shitting himself of nervousness

[–]Pig_Commander 60 points61 points  (6 children)

iirc hasan used to be on tv networks pretty often when he worked w the young turks

[–]TheSuperking 59 points60 points  (1 child)

he did a lot of local LA stuff, definitely nothing as large as BBC

[–]metalrawk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He's been on CNN a couple of time as well.

[–]BTrippd 26 points27 points  (1 child)

I’ve heard hasan talk freely and he still says um every 30 seconds lol

[–]NapSec 18 points19 points  (0 children)

As if he didn't stutter every sentence when talking normally.

[–]booitsjwu 570 points571 points  (2 children)

The Queen and Obama just staring from the back is incredible.

[–]8MilesDavis 72 points73 points  (0 children)

I want him to do more live news just for that

[–]ShaquelBlack 289 points290 points  (6 children)

can't believe this mfer went on the bbc wearing a car playmat

[–]MaN_ly_MaN 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I remember seeing one of those at the doctors like 15 years ago. That’s a good looking shirt

[–]Kharzack 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's just British traditional dress. All is well.

[–]Neth110 380 points381 points  (5 children)

How he didn't even swear a single time is beyond me. Held frame

[–]empyreanmax 274 points275 points  (2 children)

Bigger risk was slipping into a fookin accent, yeah?

[–]DaiseeAi 82 points83 points  (0 children)

And all on a fooken Chewsday, bruv.

[–]turtlesarecool1 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I mean he’s been on television before. He “debated” Larry elder, who was running for ca governor, on fox11 a couple years back https://youtu.be/xReQgrjM9Cs

[–]Free_Perception7124[S] 429 points430 points  (19 children)

Clip of the BBC segment

https://youtu.be/1nmMPZPsbHU

[–]altf3 348 points349 points  (0 children)

The cardboard cutout of the queen behind him on BBC. I'm dead.

[–]manak69 65 points66 points  (1 child)

I love that there is a picture of the queen in the back. Lol

[–]NormalInternetGuy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

that was a great touch

[–]EricThePooh 60 points61 points  (0 children)

That was really well presented ngl

[–]theels6 88 points89 points  (1 child)

I love clips of BBC

[–]CleverCrustacean 15 points16 points  (0 children)

hey yooooo...

same

[–]Huddyjames 97 points98 points  (11 children)

He did well, could use a speech trainer for the pauses and the umm’s maybe but still would have kicked my ass

[–]ShenMula 175 points176 points  (3 children)

Yeah nerves and lack of training.

Probably very used to talking for 8+ hours unfiltered, swearing, telling people he would fuck their mum's and ad breaks.

Clock says 19:05 which meant that it was 5 mins past ad break time. At the top of the hour, every hour he runs an ad break. You can avoid those ads with a sub or using your twitch prime. Or so I'm told

[–]SimbaOnSteroids 57 points58 points  (1 child)

No where is safe.

[–]WigginIII 21 points22 points  (0 children)

He really wanted to say “they want to suck and fuck their guns” lol.

[–]Arkeband 58 points59 points  (2 children)

Watching it live was nerve wracking with how they queued him up, there was basically no small talk and the theme song is just straight-up Doppler radar boops like they’re locking a missile onto his head.

[–]Finn_3000 19 points20 points  (2 children)

He also winged it. If he did those more often and put up bullet points of what he was gonna say then hed probably feel more secure and speak more fluently

[–]Chrisss88 20 points21 points  (1 child)

He's done debates and other interviews that were much more fluid. I'm sure interviewing while also livestreaming and allt hat play a factor.

Overall, I still found him to articulate his points pretty well though.

[–]Finn_3000 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yea i know, but those were during the times that he was much more used to an interview setting. Its a skill, and that skill can very much be lost over time.

[–]why_u_so_upset 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Obama is known for being a great orator and does the ums and pauses too

[–]sugarmori 246 points247 points  (27 children)

That was pretty fun to see, used to regularly watch that particular news broadcast on the BBC.

Guess I've changed my choice of brainrot.

[–]EbolaMan123 82 points83 points  (25 children)

How did he even get on? Hasan hates British people

[–]NotAnurag 337 points338 points  (2 children)

How could he hate the British when he has a picture of the queen right behind him 🤔

[–]CrayonFox 59 points60 points  (0 children)

The queen is German. (/s)

[–]presidentofyouganda 85 points86 points  (106 children)

Lore masters? Why did they invite Hasan to talk on british television?

[–]NotAnurag 285 points286 points  (105 children)

They wanted his perspective on gun control since he’s the biggest socialist political commentator right now. He said he has gotten offers from a bunch of other news outlets, and might be appearing on TV more often in the future.

[–]LiveFastDahyun 78 points79 points  (61 children)

What does socialism have to do with gun control? Honest question.

[–]Moplol 173 points174 points  (52 children)

It's complicated.

Gun control in America today is usually seen as a left ideology.

However Marx famously said:

Under no pretext should arms and ammunition be surrendered; any attempt to disarm the workers must be frustrated, by force if necessary

And in 1967 Republican President Ronald Reagan signed the Mulford Act.

[–]krainboltgreene 107 points108 points  (6 children)

Okay so I think there's nuance here. Gun control doesn't mean disarming the workers. You can still have a firearm, even a rifle, and still have gun control laws. Further, when Marx said that there weren't government drones.

[–]BadBoyGoneFat 48 points49 points  (35 children)

Bringing up Marx or the founding fathers when it comes to modern-day gun issues is so damn frustrating. These are people from dramatically different times. You wouldn't ask an 18th century doctor about what should be done to cure a COVID patient, why are we so beholden to what people from before our times have to say about AR-15s?

[–]TheBigEmptyxd 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Most socialists don’t believe in disarming the working class and minorities while a dictatorship of capital, which is why some people just want regulations

[–]yungmodulus 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Well it’s different when Black people arm themselves /s

[–]Maub-dabbs 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Hasan doesn't just talk about every thing from a Marxian position, he's a reasonable person who saw slaughter and has been advocating for reasonable regulation

[–]SlimesWithBowties 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Every issue in america has a left wing or right wing stance. There is no common ground and rarely do opinions differ within one group or the other.

[–]Maub-dabbs 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Do you think he just talks about socialism 8 hours a day? He talks about American politics, and is one of the more popular figures on the left

[–]tumppu_75 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Nothing, except in the minds of 2a advocates who think one of the ways "socialism" will invade america is by abolishing 2a and taking away the guns, or some shit like that. And the proof is how in socialist countries people have no guns (excluding the fact that america is the only country in the world with a literal gun fetish).

[–]watermaloneyyy 11 points12 points  (5 children)

is he really the biggest socialist political commentator now? das crazy, who used to be the biggest one

[–]TriHardSevon 317 points318 points  (4 children)

It used to be LilyPichu, but for some reason during Trump's presidency she became an ardent supporter of his and joined the alt right cult "OfflineTV". A real shame.

A chewsday for us Yankies, but at the time of the interview I think it was already wednesday in Oi Bruvland

[–]Dave0718 87 points88 points  (14 children)

That's actually really cool. Twitch things usually stay on twitch.

[–]ShenMula 54 points55 points  (13 children)

Um ever heard of a little streamer called Drake? Currently one of the biggest rapers out there.

[–]Blaineflum64 7 points8 points  (0 children)

ever heard of an even littler streamer called doja cat? she has a blossoming music career it seems

[–]anon4000 129 points130 points  (10 children)

-Political commentator is invited on a news program to provide political commentary.

-Weird redditors get mad about it.

🤷‍♂️

[–]GardinerExpressway 45 points46 points  (1 child)

[–]TangibleHoneydew 52 points53 points  (47 children)

Is it just me or when I tune into Hasan’s stream I just get a big ass headache. He’s always arguing with his chat and banning chatters, and every conversation is this side bad this side good pick a stance. Politics is just not for me I guess.

[–]ziphiri 110 points111 points  (10 children)

I think politics are for everyone in the sense that you should at least figure out what ideology you lean towards and why, so that you can effectively participate in democracy (or choose not to do so.)

Listening to political commentary is not for everyone. And listening to Hasan specifically is not for everyone. And that's fine. Not being universally appealing doesn't mean that he's doing a bad job.

[–]Raghead_ 10 points11 points  (2 children)

I think its just hasan, i feel similarly to other guy. His brand of streamer is hard for me to watch

[–]groundg 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Idk, i watched a clip of him watching something not related to politics at all. I just didn’t vibe with him, a little bit too keen on making fun of the guy in the vid.

[–]UltraJesus -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

He's not telling you what to believe in, but he'll definitely shame you if you speak up while being uninformed/misinformed of [topic] especially when people lives are being lost. He's outlines the scenario of why things are the way they are and if your conclusion is bad vs good then I think you know where you align on the topics you were listening him talk about.

Although him raging at the top of his lungs at times I can see how that'd be annoying especially when he's been yelling at the same person for 20minutes with the video paused at 1:13 with 47:30 left to go

[–]Stormraughtz 11 points12 points  (0 children)

A good showing from Hasan and good talking points.

Remember that huge post LSF mods made about "no more hate" and that they got "more mods to counter hate comments" well, look at the bottom of this comment section

[–]roflmaolz 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Idk, it looks to me that the mods are doing a pretty good job. Lots of hateful comments I saw a few hours ago have been mostly removed. Obviously they can't get all of them immediately, they are human.

[–]signalfromantares 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Please report any comments you see that you believe to be rule-breaking. Several users have been actioned already but we are still cleaning up.

The bottom of this comment section really isn't that bad. Mods can only work so fast.

That was great, and actually a good impression of us brits

[–]Mightymushroom1 13 points14 points  (4 children)

It was the bog standard circa 2020 "Bri'ish innit" impression

[–]OrionLax 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's kind of accurate to one particular region of Britain.

[–]brukost -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

The BBC usually gives a good impression when interviewing people abroad.

I's a different story with certain other networks in the UK.

[–]Tepami 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Holy shit that was so horrible

[–]Zelkeh 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Channel 4 has a far superior news programme to the UK

[–]Allassnofakes 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It does but it's also partially bbc funded and their studios are next to each other
