The latest target is Georgia Republican Jason Spencer. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. TYT now has a full audio network! Listen at
“In a shocking segment from Sunday night’s episode of his Showtime series, Who Is America?, Sacha Baron Cohen convinces Jason Spencer, a Georgia Republican state representative, to repeatedly shout the “n-word,” use an ethnic slur against Arabs and drop his pants to “intimidate ISIS.”
During the prank, Cohen plays the character Erran Morad, an Israeli antiterrorism expert who teaches Spencer how to avoid a terrorist kidnapping. “You have three seconds to attract attention,” the satirist says, adding, “In America, there is one forbidden word. It is the ‘n-word’.” Spencer then begins screaming the racial slur as Cohen apprehends him with a finger gun.
In another shocking moment, Spencer plays along as Cohen details a technique for identifying a terrorist wearing a burqa by using a selfie stick and photographing the person’s genitals. As a practice distraction technique, the lawmaker affects a sterotypical Asian accent and shouts random words – “sushi,” “chopstick” – to convince bystanders that he’s a “Chinese tourist.” Later, he pulls down his pants and runs backwards into the actor while screaming “America!” – a demonstration of how to “intimidate ISIS” with the threat of homosexuality.”*
