Sacha Baron Cohen Trolls Neo-Nazis

Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has hijacked a Washington State far right rally, enraging the neo-nazi organisers.

https://twitter.com/i/status/1277031411724120064

Cohen had already bought the rights to sing at the rally and his security team stopped the far right organisers from storming the stage when they realised they’d been conned.

In a hillbilly disguise, Cohen got the crowd of rednecks to sing along with lines like these:

“Journalists, what we gonna do? Chop ’em up like the Saudis do!”

“Dr Fauci, what we gonna do? Inject him with the Wuhan flu!”

 

It’s a stunt reminiscent of the rodeo scene in the Borat movie, but even better because it made a Nazi cry.

    I assume he's filming a second series of Who Is America, cringe comedy at it's finest.

    Good to hear he's trolling neo-Nazis instead of shilling for a fascist state, as he infamously did back in 2009, when he ridiculed a Christian peace activist in the Occupied West Bank. Fool ended up having to pay damages for his libel.

      It's funny, when we see the names and the topic over on the "Comments" (right hand side of the screen), sometimes we can confidently predict what it's going to be. In this case, that it would be entirely off-topic, focused only on the man not the ball, and over a decade old.

      It's a shame some people have not the slightest interest in the posts they are commenting on, but bores gonna crowbar, I guess.

    what a bunch of lies, far right Neo Nazis, the left is insane. watch this video and see what really happened https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQfOzKjmEU0

    • The Washington Three Percenters are neo-Nazis. Look 'em up.

      The video you link to shows their supporters singing along with the Cohen song. Nothing in that video contradicts what has been reported here and elsewhere.

      Given the musical context, it's fair to say Sacha Baron Cohen played them like a fiddle.

      • G unit 4.1.1

        I followed you advise and failed to see anything on their website about neo nazi beliefs. Seems they are a bunch of vets of all races, Including the BLACK organiser that spoke at the end of the video, how did you miss that?

        From https://wa3percent.org/index.php

        "We are not an anti-government militia group, actually we are pro-government, as long as that government follows the restrictions set forth in the constitution.

        We support the U.S. Constitution, and expect our government to do the same.

        We are NOT tin foil hat conspiracy nuts.

        We are an inclusive group and welcome all races, nationalities, religions, and lifestyle preferences. If you are a constitution supporting American Patriot, we welcome you."

        Seems you're the one who has been trolled by the SPLC (southern poverty law centre who have been discredited many many times in the media) and didn't actually bother to find out about the W3% for yourself.

        LOL, as if any person that can think for themselves would take any notice of the SPLC. But then, I suppose it fits your agenda.

        • te reo putake 4.1.1.1

          No shit, Sherlock. You’re on a left wing site and our default position, as best I recall it, is anti-bigot.

          The Washington state 3% group have marginally drifted away from their neo-nazi roots, choosing to leave their national organisation. That doesn’t make them any better than any of the other white power militias they still hang with.

          Did you spot their supporters singing along? That’s a clue as to how far they’ve reformed. ie not very fucken much at all.

          • Morrissey 4.1.1.1.1

            …. our default position, as best I recall it, is anti-bigot.

            ????????

            So why are you promoting that arch-bigot Sacha Baron Cohen?

            • observer 4.1.1.1.1.1

              Why are you siding with "G Unit", without doing a bit of research into the group he's backing?

              (or worse, you have done the research and you're still OK with it …)

              • Morrissey

                I'm not siding with G unit. I'm questioning our good friend te reo putake's remarkable assertion that his (te reo's) "default position is anti-bigot" in the middle of a thread in which he praises a hateful and ideologically merciless bigot.

                After your very reasonable admonition, I had a look at what G unit posted, and it looks like he is indeed trying to spin for those neo-Nazis—so no, I do NOT side with him. Thanks for the heads up.

                • observer

                  OK, clarification welcome, fair enough.

                • G unit

                  err no, I'm anti neo nazi as much as the next person on here.

                  As a young fellow I knew a few and they are basically uneducated idiots as far as I've witnessed.

                  Maybe I need to research more about these dudes but what I found in a simple 2 minute search never mentioned anything about a pro nazi past and only the SPLC site was on the nazi bandwagon, as usual..

                  All I saw was a bunch of combat vets that are a bit constitution happy, please point me to the far right 'nazi' links .. seriously do.

                  Happy to be proved wrong.

  5. I dunno

    isn’t he inciting hatred?

    Must say hes on to a cash cow though
    I much prefer Sarah
    Cooper’s style of parody

    • Tricledrown 5.1

      He is exposing racial hatred.

      • francesca 5.1.1

        yep

        like any populist

        • Tricledrown 5.1.1.1

          So why not, some one has to take leadership. pidgeon holding a man who is brave enough to stand up to Neo Nazi's is a very weak argument.

          Marama Davidson bravely went on a protest in the Mediteranean against Israel's treatment of Palestinians. Was that populist too?

          All the right wing were seething at her bravery.

          (Fixed a couple of typos. Pigeon’s got me beat, though! TRP)

          • francesca 5.1.1.1.1

            I absolutely adored Marama for going on the peace flotilla.I would have adored her less if I thought she was doing it to to make squillions out of a comedic series to be aired for entertainment

          • duane zarakov 5.1.1.1.2

            hold that pigeon

      • Morrissey 5.1.2

        He "exposes racial hatred" in the same way as Donald Trump, who shares his contempt for the people in the Occupied Territories and Gaza, exposes racial hatred.

    • Morrissey 5.2

      He incites hatred. He is a brutal supporter of the Israeli state. Under false pretences, he interviewed Abu Aita, a Christian peace activist in the Occupied Territories, and repeatedly referred to him as an Islamic terrorist. His nasty stunt was far more than simply telling a malicious lie and libeling Abu Aita; it also placed Abu Aita in great peril. That’s why he was forced to pay a considerable sum for damages.

      • G unit 5.2.1

        I was at the Waitangi event this year and was surprised to see the Israeli flag flying. Imagine that, openly supporting a modern day apartheid state all while complaining about a 200 year old treaty with the English Crown. (not saying at all that there are not legitimate complaints).

        Think about that, long and hard.

        • Morrissey 5.2.1.1

          Thanks for that, G Unit. I'm sure that someone from the Israeli embassy or simply some diehard fanatic gave them the flag, smiled nicely, and the locals were naive enough to put it up without another thought.
