Sacha Baron Cohen Infiltrates A Right Wing Rally To Con Attendees Into Singing A Racist Song

He infiltrated a rally organised by a USA far-right group the Washington State Three Percenters over the weekend and comprehensively tricked the crowd.

The Daily Beast reports Baron Cohen smuggled himself onto the stage of the March for our Rights 3 rally in Olympia, Washington, where he and his band performed a deeply racist and conspiratorial bluegrass number.

At one point, Cohen says that we should inject Barack Obama with the "Wuhan Flu" and even has some disparaging words for those in Saudi Arabia.

Other targets include the World Health Organization (WHO), people who wear face masks and "liberals". The comedian attended a far-right militia event and tricked the crowd into singing a racist song about the "Wuhan flu". "W H O what we gonna do, Chop them up like the Saudis do".

The crowd sang back to Cohen repeating the lyrics to him.

The acts of those memorialised could be forgiven "only if there's justice", he said. He added: "We can only do that if we've got justice".

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, "The reference to 3 percent stems from the dubious historical claim that only 3 percent of American colonists fought against the British during the War of Independence".

Sacha Baron Cohen's career is built upon the art of trolling, from posing as a Kazakh journalist in "Borat" to getting Paula Abdul to sit on "Mexican chair-people" in Brüno and, finally, the overall madness of his politically incorrect Showtime series "Who Is America?".

They posted their own video showing organisers admitting at the event that they got "catfished" by the stunt and called it "a hit job from extremists" created to divide America.

Baron Cohen was raised Jewish and is fluent in Hebrew.

During the interview he pitched his invention the "ice-cream glove", to protect hands from dripping ice-cream, which Trump rejected.
