Sacha Baron Cohen pranks right-wing event, posing as a racist bluegrass singer

In classic Sacha Baron Cohen fashion, the comedian and actor infiltrated a racist protest in order to expose America’s underlying bigotry.

Sacha Baron Cohen is infamous for disguising himself and making fun of people. In his most recent act of humiliation, Cohen has poked fun at a group of far-right protestors.

At a “March for Our Rights 3” rally in Washington state, Cohen dressed up as a country-bluegrass singer in order to rally the crowd into a singalong of a racist song.

The rally was being held by the Washington Three Percenters, a far-right militia. Cohen managed to infiltrate the rally and even implement a large proportion of his own security. Beginning his infiltration as the head of a political action committee in order to get access, Cohen soon filled the rally with his own security in order to run-amuck.

During his very short-lived but shocking career as a bluegrass singer, Cohen sung, “Obama, what we gonna do? Inject him with the Wuhan flu. Hillary Clinton, what we gonna do? Lock her up like we used to do. Fauci don’t know his head from his ass. He must be smoking grass. I ain’t lying, it ain’t no jokes. Corona is a liberal hoax. Dr. Fauci, what we gonna do? Inject him with the Wuhan flu. WHO, what we gonna do? Chop ’em up like the Saudis do.” The crowd even began to singalong at numerous points during the song.

A rather angry statement from the Washington Three Percenters followed Cohen’s antics, “We of the WA3% were appalled at the performance of an entertainer adorned in clown-face, who — much to our group’s mutual repugnance — voiced a series of racist and antisemitic jokes and songs, while on the stand. This display of disgusting antics was neither condoned nor accepted by WA3%, and we disavow any affiliation with this lamentable individual.”

There is still no news yet on whether this was all a part of Cohen’s TV series, This Is America. Until we see the full videos of these events, enjoy a couple of short clips of Cohen’s adventure below.

UPDATE: The madman returned to the gathering later in the day to interview organisers.
