Bravo, Sasha Baron Cohen. He certainly is one brave human.
Yesterday in Olympia, Washington, he infiltrated an Alt-right rally and got all the attendees to sing along with his sarcastic White Supremacist ditty, unbeknownst to them, manipulating them easily into exposing their own idiocy.
Sasha Baron Cohen Punks the Alt-Right at Racistpalooza
The “March For Our Rights 3” event was hosted by the Washington’s Three Percenters, a far-right militia group that has previously organized gun rights rallies. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, “The reference to 3 percent stems from the dubious historical claim that only 3 percent of American colonists fought against the British during the War of Independence.”
Disguised as a Blue Grass singer in overalls he posed as a member of the last band to perform at the crowd of 500. He then launched into an unnamed song that urged listeners to attack liberals, CNN, The World Health Organization, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Bill Gates and “mask-wearers” by either injecting them with “the Wuhan Flu” or “chopping them up like the Saudis do.” The crowd cheered and whoo-hoo-ed Cohen’s anti-Semitic taunts (the “you-know-whos”) and anti-Asian calls to violence (“nuke ‘em up like we used to do”).
One of the event’s organizers explained that they’d received a late, large donation from California to secure the stage (and bring their own security) so no one could pull the plug on him during the performance.
This is one of several of Cohen’s exposés of intolerance in a career littered with them.
After the event, Cohen even changed his appearance and snuck back in to interview attendees and discuss what had happened.
Needless to say, once it dawned upon the attendees, the crowd was NOT happy with his mocking their Racistpalooza.
