Well, had they caught him, disemboweled him and fed him to the local swine, I'd see no loss.

It's pretty sad when the only thing you have to brag about is your school.

Tatsuma: words


You take this shiat serious, don't you?

I'm shocked at how this thread turned out.

I really should've put money on this.
 
2012-05-21 08:51:14 AM
The thing is is that you just don't know if this actually happened to Sacha Baron Cohen or if this is just another one of his publicity stunts. And because of this, I just can't work up the motivation to feel concern for him.
 
2012-05-21 08:59:59 AM

Tatsuma: Not only would they NOT kill him for this, but especially not since he's Jewish.


Killing Gentiles isn't as bad as killing Jews. But don't you dare call them racist.

cameroncrazy1984: MeinRS6: You don't get to pick the reactions of the people that you attack/make fun of/etc

So? Just because you don't get to pick the reaction they make doesn't make whatever reaction they make proportional.

You don't have to defend this just because it was Jews doing it, you know. They're human. They can make mistakes as well.


Well, at least you're admitting that you're a rabid anti-semite now.
 
2012-05-21 09:32:56 AM

MeinRS6: Good lord. Some of you just want to nit pick a brotha to death.

The thread is about Cohen pushing some buttons and paying the smallest price for doing it. I don't think it's a big deal. So sue me.


Fark Libs hate jews but don't want to be labeled Nazis since they use that against their opponents. They will find any contrived excuse to go after them. You gave them that excuse.

It's amusing, albeit sad, when some internet fool thinks violent reactions are warranted for jokes or some other non-violent act.

Yeah, let's use violence to deal with anger and insecurity. This is totally how reasonable, mature, civilized people deal with life.
 
2012-05-21 09:58:57 AM
He tells that story in the commentary of Bruno. And its in the movie. This is why the media blows.

I don't think ANYONE is saying that the violent actions are justified. What I think alot of us are pointing out is that, if you are going to make fun of a group of people (who are known to react violently when they are made fun of), you have no right to be suprised when they do.

/put me down for publicity stunt

Doesn't he know it would only be funnier if he didn't get away? Maybe they can try again and hire a few sports pitchers this time.

F*ck Israel. they have this Nation wrapped around their little fingers and feeling sorry for them. our Tax payers give, not loan, Billions to Israel and get nothing in return.

they like it that way.

ladyfortuna: I dunno, from what I've heard over the years, the ultra-orthodox in Israel can be pretty intolerant of anything not part of their small group - including other Jews who don't strictly observe clothing rules, behavior, and customs, not to mention how they treat women they might see out and about who aren't even connected to them. I'll be the first to admit I have no direct exposure and it's mostly hearsay, but it's enough to make me wary of devout members of the religion if I encounter them.


You're very much correct. Which is weird because of all the other groups of and sects of Judaism being so calm by comparison for the most part. When my dad converted to Judaism when I was younger, we went to Israel as it is something be dreamed of doing. Only the Hasids were biatching and condemning things when I was there. They don't even take honest inquiry very well. I was very curious about their religion and wanted to know more about it and I was completely shiat on and turned away for being a stupid American. I walked in to any other temple and was greeted and talked to at length for hours.

New York Hasids are different though. Not as outwardly dickish, but many are very inward because of people farking with them. They tend to be cautious around strangers.

Israel is for the chosen ones, no doubt.

chosen to corn hole America real good.

I saw it this weekend for the first time. I agree... that was farking funny as hell. Especially that scene when they're focus-grouping his TV pilot.

I really don't get all the hate I've seen for that movie. Go figure.

wanna' know where the hate comes from???

remember the scene near the end where Cohen gives the speech and chastises American policies and the hypocrisy that this Nation gets away with because it no longer has a Free and Independent press????

that is why.

Americans don't do very well with criticism because they've been told by their TV Owners that America can do no wrong.

I think it has more to do with people feeling ookie about seeing overt gay sexuality. Hell, I'm a pretty open-minded guy... and it made me uncomfortable at times.

Note: Mrs_Fab didn't laugh nearly as much as I did. So maybe I just have a weird sense of humor.

At least you realize it. Most of what you hear is hearsay and not actual facts. Take this story, for example. If you just left this thread reading it, you would think that Sasha Baron Cohen was just walking along calmly when dozens and dozens of black hat bearded men came down and tried to stone him

When you actually take time to look at the video, you realize that he was bothering people, that they cut it so we just see the reaction of the people (who are speaking Hebrew, and telling him No! and Stop!) before running after him. Three men total, only one of them Orthodox, two of them possibly not even religious. That's the whole 'mob'.

Farking Canuck: I think the important thing to remember here is religious nutbags come in all flavors!

Today the violence comes from jews. Maybe tomorrow some christians will be murdering some more doctors while some muslims bomb a bus full of Israeli children.


Too bad we cant find them a place where they can only hurt each other and leave the rest of us be.

MeinRS6: You guys didn't read TFA.

Cohen didn't say he was hit by any rocks. And for all we know he made up the part about the rocks in the first place. He is a comedian and big time attention whore, after all.

And how did he escape this "deadly mob"? He open a single door and went into a store. Boy, it sounds like he was very close to death. Good thing the enraged mob didn't know how to enter the store or he probably would've been toast.

So settle down kids.

So wait. People have been posting about this being an attempted murder - and you don't reply to their comments?

You appear to be very unbiased and concerned. I hold you in the highest regard.

Reminds me of the scene in "Where in the World is Osama bin Laden?" There is a Jewish Taliban. It's a tiny minority of the Jewish people, but it does exist.

Religious fundamentalism of all types must go away. Or there will never be peace.

That is Tatsuma, and he's busy posting on at least 3 logins. Besides which he is an abject religious lunatic and unworthy of actual discussions. Tatsuma is to Israel as CruserTwelve is to police brutality. They are incapable of overcoming their biases.
