Did Sacha Baron Cohen Just Infiltrate a Far-Right Rally?

The man we all know and love as Borat and Ali G has had us laughing over things we probably shouldn’t for years, but he has reportedly taken things to a new extreme this week. Sacha Baron Cohen is accused of infiltrating a far-right ‘March for Our Rights 3’ rally in Olympia, Washington. Further, the 48-year-old comedian apparently got attendees to sing along to an incredibly racist song.

The awkward encounter was captured on video, lasting for a full eight-minute performance before the jig was up. According to reports, Cohen arrived with a large security detail that blocked organisers from turning off the generators that powered the speakers and stage equipment. When he could no longer hold off the organisers, Cohen reportedly fled in an ambulance.

The performance featured lines such as “Dr. Fauci, what we gonna do? Inject him with the Wuhan flu…Hillary Clinton, what we gonna do? Lock her up like we used to do…WHO, what we gotta do? Chop ’em up like the Saudis do”.

The performance has copped criticism from a number of officials, including councilman James Blair from Yelm City. “He came on the stage disguised a the lead singer of the last band, singing a bunch of racist, hateful, disgusting shit,” Blair tweeted. “His security blocked even organisers from getting him off the stage, or pulling power from the generator.” Baron-Cohen apparently then snuck in dressed in a different disguise to conduct interviews about the event.

With so much turmoil in the US already, you can bet this stunt will feature prominently in the surrealist comic’s future releases. We might just have to wait until the next instalment of his disturbing hit television series Who is America? to really understand what went down.
