  1. I don’t like that the predisposition of the gag is to suck in unawares people to make them look like bufoons. This is the MO of his schtick. But these people are our people, so in this particular example i dont appreciate his disingenuous tactic. How’s that?

  2. In fact, if the reaction he ellicits from these people is the one he desires, it makes him the idiot progressive, does it not? This may not be a room of Phd’s, but it is a room of people who refreshingly know right from wrong, and they’re willing to show it. A room full of Phd’s nowadays? That’s just a snow storm.

  3. What’s so funny?

    There’s a huge difference between an artful uncovering of the absurdities that we all live with in our lives and beliefs. This is the essence of wit and humor. This is not what Sacha Baron-Cohen practices, however.

    His milieu is the plausible mimicking of various character types, presenting these types to those most likely to take offense, and then inviting his audience to laugh at the offense and discomfort he brings to his on-screen victims. It’s schoolyard “Let’s-play-a-trick-on-Jimmy” crap. As I recall, from many years ago, the perpetrators of such cruelty were those who themselves feared to be so treated.

    The reaction of the people in Kingman was remarkable for its restraint. By now the pattern is so well worn that the focus group didn’t get up as a single body and leave the room, leaving the ambush “comedian” (predator) to play to the empty room..

    Mr. Baron-Cohen: Whatever the suffering you endured in the schoolyard, it’s time to put it behind you and grow up.

  4. He is just trying to open peoples eyes and make them aware. Make them watch for ‘permits’ and such. Make them understand the horrors of the encroachment of islam. Make them talk to everyone they know, to wake those folks up too. And mosques like those would be a true horror for ANY American city.
