Sacha Baron Cohen trolls far-right event disguised as bluegrass singer

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

Baron Cohen took the stage at the "March for Our Rights 3" rally, held at Olympia's Heritage Park, dressed in overalls and a fake beard.

Sacha came as the honcho of a political action committee, or so he said. according to the Daily Beast. Anyway, Cohen managed to infiltrate a far-right rally in rural Washington state yesterday afternoon by, first of all, offering to donate to the rally and then, offering to hire security for said event.

The song urged people to attack people in masks, liberals, CNN, The World Health Organisation and Barack Obama, asking "What we gonna do?" "Hillary Clinton what we gonna do/Lock her up like we used to do/W H O what we gonna do/Chop them up like the Saudis do".

After organisers cottoned on to the stunt, they attempted to take him off stage and unplug the power, but Cohen was one step ahead with a team of security guarding the generator.

The set is thought to be included in Cohen's next season of his Showtime series, 'Who Is America?'.


Among the song's other targets: Bill Gates, the World Health Organisation, and United States infectious disease expert Dr Anthony Fauci, all of whom are referenced in ridiculous conspiracy theories relating to coronavirus.

The notorious prankster, responsible for Borat and Ali G, left members of paramilitary group Three Percenters red faced-after sneaking into one of their Washington events in costume.

Cohen's latest comedy figure also convinced the crowd to sing about journalists and how they should "chop them up like the Saudis do" - a reference to the death of Jamal Khashoggi, who was assassinated at the Saudi consulate in Turkey in 2018.

TMZ reported that at some point the crowd turned on Baron Cohen, who was whisked into a waiting ambulance by his security and driven away.
