Hah. He exposed them for what they are.
Good one.

I think they might have to change their name to the "Third Percentile on Our IQ Tests" after this.

It may be his greatest prank since Borat sang "Throw the Jew Down the Well" in an Arizona country and western bar more than 15 years ago.

Guessing they never saw the Jason Spencer bit from Who Is America, where he dropped N-bombs, chased Cohen with his ass, made blatant Asian jokes, and promptly quit his government lawmaker position?

Militia? Fark you. What do they get in a circle and beat off to Red Dawn or something? Militia. Give me a farking break.

But great job, Sasha. I don't mean this, I mean landing Isla Fisher.

The cops are the militia.. This is a club.

Remember when Congress was all up in arms that Right Wing militias that were planning on taking down the gub'mint were put on Homeland Security's watchlists?

Yeah...this is kind of why we wanted to keep tabs on them. And it's nice to see that someone hasn't forgotten about these jackanapes. Well, Congress hasn't forgotten about them, since the checks keep clearing, but even still...

You know, Sacha Baron Cohen really is hit or miss in a major way, but when he hits, he hits big time.

He also has huge farking brass balls.

I really fear for his safety sometimes.  Some of his marks look like they're ready to murder him.

Yeah, everyone loved Borat because they thought he was sticking it to dumbasses but it was mostly just people looking at him like he was an asshole. But sometimes he does good stuff, especially farking with a "militia" who while I'm sure are pussies are assuredly well armed.
 
2020-06-28 8:28:13 AM  
Most of them were chasing him to get his autograph.
He'll probably be invited to the next rally.

Cops are not militia.   Cops are civilians.  Sometimes they need to be reminded of that.

I thought the rodeo scene was the best in the movie. He just kept slowly morphing from typical patriotism into bloodthirsty psychotic monster. You could see what percent of attendees were at what point on the continuum. It was disturbing how far along the path so many were, and it's certainly gotten worse.

He has to tuck them back to blend in with his mark.

I like this. This is how they should always be reported.

"Today, members of the local fear club gathered in city park to huddle together and direct frightened scowls at rally-goers protesting police violence."

Well, in this case his marks look ready to murder anyone in a 400 yard radius, at any time, for no particular reason.

I don't know what to think of Sasha.He's clever, but he always seems to go after the low-hanging fruit.
After all, "making" fools out of these characters isn't exactly a feat of pwnage.
 
2020-06-28 9:17:16 AM  
not really a fan but this was good. exposing the sheeple. not that they will realize they have been exposed for being idiots wh blindly do whatever they are told. but it made me laugh so there is that.

Yeah, but what would satisfy you?  Who SHOULD he go after?

This is the current climate, and these people love the "I'm not racist, all lives should matter" line.  Let them show and own their true colors, this is relevant.

Parody is dead. His pretending to be racist is getting a bit too close to actually racist. It's not funny so much as depressing and sad. The human race is irredeemable.

I much preferred the Ali G days where he would pretend to be dumb to get people's guard down and then utterly destroy them.

The last line of his intro to the rodeo audience was hoping that W Bush would drink the blood of every last Iraqi man, woman and child. A handful of audience members applauded.

Those audience members and their ilk are now Trumpers.

Pretty sure the fact that the beard looks fake as hell is a deliberate special effect. That greatly-underappreciated movie runs the gamut of in-your-face Antifa to subtle and nuanced jabs and esoteric symbolism. The fake beard was not-so-subtle symbolism.

SaladMonkey: Yeah, but what would satisfy you?


I'm not dissatisfied. Maybe you should read my comment again, the one where I expressed no dissatisfaction with anything.
Maybe the word you are searching for is "ambivalence".
I don't think my being ambivalent about Cohen is a problem, or requires any solution.

He's got a PhD in humanity.  He's got the gift for knowing which marks are pussies and how far he can take it.

Meh. If you're going to effectively pull off a prank like this, you've got to expose the worst in people. These people weren't behaving at their worst.

He brings the cockroaches into the light, all while showing them cheering the fact they are cockroaches, where they only do that behind closed doors.

Back when he was doing his show and Bruno went to the gun show, son yojel actually said "I'm fittin to knock every one of your teeth out if you call me gay again, so be careful" and the yokel stayed there to hear the next question.

When saw that there's no doubt in my mind the guy would have followed through on his threat and I was terrified for Cohen.

Maybe the hoax was not demonstrably effective, but it has a hint of optimism: Another reminder that the American GOP Nazis in the 21st century are even more stupid than the Bavarian ones were in the early 20th century.
