What in the world would you say to someone who mocks and disrespects American veteran war heroes?
It shouldn’t be tough to predict how one would respond to an act so blatantly offensive,but others clearly have no empathy for those who fought and died for our freedom and everything the United States stands for.
But this Hollywood elitist did exactly that, and disgustingly exploited disabled U.S. veterans for his brand new show.
Actor Sacha Baron Cohen hasn’t been relevant for a long time.
The British actor and comedian is known for mock-fests like Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, Bruno, and HBO’s D Ali G Show.
Everything he’s been in since then hasn’t been all that successful.
He’s the type of guy who mocks the person being interviewed when they don’t understand the tone in how he’s asking the questions. That’s his entire gimmick. It’s like being interviewed by the Sesame Street characters without realizing it’s a kids show and that they’re puppets.
But he’s back to his old tricks again with his new show, Who is America.One of his episodes will feature an interview with former Republican nominee for Vice President and Alaskan governor, Sarah Palin, where he disgustingly disguised himself as a wheel-chair bound disabled veteran.
He officially tricked Palin into an interview by placating her empathy towards combat veterans.
Palin wrote on Facebook, “Yup – we were duped. Ya’ got me, Sacha. Feel better now? I join a long list of American public personalities who have fallen victim to the evil, exploitive, sick ‘humor’ of the British ‘comedian’ Sacha Baron Cohen, enabled and sponsored by CBS/Showtime.”
Cohen has a long, long history of mocking Americans. Both of his characters, Borat and D Ali G, exemplify his disdain towards working-class citizens.
And Hollywood absolutely adores him for making a fun of America.
Palin altruistically thought the interview was part of a documentary.
She continued on Facebook: This “legit opportunity” to honor American Vets and contribute to a “legit Showtime historical documentary” was requested of me via a speakers bureau.
For my interview, my daughter and I were asked to travel across the country where Cohen (I presume) had heavily disguised himself as a disabled US Veteran, fake wheelchair and all.
Out of respect for what I was led to believe would be a thoughtful discussion with someone who had served in uniform, I sat through a long “interview” full of Hollywoodism’s disrespect and sarcasm – but finally had enough and literally, physically removed my mic and walked out, much to Cohen’s chagrin. The disrespect of our US military and middle-class Americans via Cohen’s foreign commentaries under the guise of interview questions was perverse.”
The worst thing about this unfathomable disdain towards our American veterans who risked everything for our freedom,is that Showtime – and CBS which owns Showtime – condoned this asinine behavior.
And it’s not just Palin who has become the victim of this nonsense.
In the promotional video for the show, Cohen made a mockery of President Trump and former Vice President Dick Cheney.
Trump was tricked into an interview with Cohen years ago.
Trump talked directly into the camera after he figured out it was a trick, “This third-rate character named Sacha Baron Cohen… I only wished he had been punched in the face so many times right now.”
At that moment during the teaser trailer, Cohen’s face eclipses the entire screen.
Trump concluded, “Sacha Baron Cohen. Go to school. Learn about being funny.”
Sadly, liberals find him hilarious.
And in a different clip, Cohen’s voice is heard asking Vice President Cheney,who is sitting in a nice leather chair, “Is it possible for you to sign my waterboard kit?” Cheney responds, “Sure,” and adds with a smile, “That’s the first time I’ve ever signed a waterboard.”
It looks like networks and streaming giants like Showtime and Netflix aren’t afraid to hide their liberal anti-conservative bias any longer. What a mess.
