Sacha Baron Cohen Dupes Right-Wing Militia With Prank

At one point, Cohen says that we should inject Barack Obama with the "Wuhan Flu" and even has some disparaging words for those in Saudi Arabia.

He began singing a song crammed with lyrics reflecting far-right conspiracies and talking points: from the coronavirus being a hoax, to it being created in a Wuhan lab, through to the infamous "lock her up" chants directed at Hillary Clinton during the 2016 USA presidential election.

In a subsequent Facebook post on Sunday, Blair wrote, "I am deeply ashamed of any individual who was singing along with the lyrics of this song, whether they were an actual attendee or a paid actor". / Lock her up like we used to do / Dr. Fauci, what we gonna do?

According to a video of an event organizer, Baron Cohen had posed as a political action committee leader and had provided funding, security, and a new performer to the event.

Sacha Baron Cohen has done it again.

Baron Cohen was honoured past year by the Anti-Defamation League because of his record of using humour to fight hate, including through his Showtime series "Who is America?" which satirises American politics.

The comedian crashed a meeting of the Washington State Three Percenters in Olympia. In the clip below, Cohen gets up on stage dressed as a bluegrass singer and begins belting out a pretty obscene song.

Cohen had his own security set up at the show, and they prevented the plug from being pulled, Forrest Gump-style. A city councilman who was present spoke on the performance, saying, "He came on stage disguised as the lead singer of the last band, singing a bunch of racist, hateful, disgusting s**t". Not only that, Cohen's security were there with express orders to stop anyone from getting him off the stage or pulling the power.

The councilman went on to allege that Cohen was whisked away in a "private ambulance that was contracted to be their escape route" after the crowd caught on and turned on him.
