Arkansas fight fans fall for Baron Cohen stunt (cage fighting fans see gay exhibition instead)
DallasNews ^ | 7/8/08

For those familiar with the antics of shock comic Sacha Baron Cohen , it was a case of déjà vu, all over again. On May 28, he outraged a crowd of unsuspecting guests at a Carrollton office park by luring them to what they thought was a new talk show on "family values." [Click image for a larger version]

Hello, Arkansas. As an encore early last month, he outraged a crowd of 1,600 by luring them to what was billed as cage fighting. Police say the show was designed instead to capture the reactions of the unsuspecting to the sight of two men tearing off each other's clothes and kissing.

Okay, I think I understand the rules now: No one dares to make fun of homos. Period. It's a quick way to lose your job, for instance. But they can come onto "our turf," go to our churches and sporting events, insinuate themselves into our children's schools, mock us all they want to our face and otherwise shove their sick s*** down our throat. And that's okay. Does that just about cover it?

Consenting adults in private. Or public. In your face. In schools. Below 18. etc.

Socialists lie. Always.

He almost caught it once on ‘Ali G show’ where he kept implying at a gun convention that the good ole boy he was interviewing was gay. Gentleman was not pleased—after the third crack I was afraid the guy was gonna kick MY *ss for watching this prank.

This man Cohen is a degenerate and a perverted individual. Someone bopped him in New York, when he simulated a homosexual and ran his hands over a bar patrons clothes. Saying "I like the material", the man was going into the bar with his lady. A compatriot of Cohen rescued him from a couple of solid hits.

Pity.

So when is he going to try this junk in Iran? Another movie to make fun of American “bigotries”. Yawn.

I can’t wait to see the Bruno film when this comes out. Folks should see the clip from Ali G years ago when he cons all of the New York fashionistas.

This other thread is on a different subject, but also showcases Cohen’s current activities as he films his next movie.

He is a very strange man.

He ripped this particular prank off from the movie “The Magic Christian” with Peter Sellers and Ringo Star.

Hopefully there were no demonstrations of fisting, rimming, and felching. These are a few of the fecal-eaters favorite things. Half the population still thinks that the Will and Grace show represents these perverts. In the future, keep a close eye on your boys, because, the queers are coming to get them.

He’s a funny guy and happens to be Jewish. So his bit he did on a backwards town doing its annual “Running of the Jew” pulled no punches either.

He goes for the hard laugh and often, he gets them. He knows the reaction he’s looking for and will often get it.

Pat Buchannan’s interview is pretty hilarious as Pat is trying to be patient with his Ali G rapper personality.

He just did a bit with some Middle East guys, one being former Mossad. He did a whole dialogue talking about humus the food, instead of Hamas.

Not sure if I will be running to see the Bruno movie. He’s not one of my favorite characters he’s created. But it will have some very funny moments no doubt.

He’s not gay, what he’s doing is taking their weakness and turning it against them and making a couple of bucks out of it.

All they had to do to ruin the shoot was to get up, and walk out without saying a word. But instead the audience acted like simple teenagers.

So, the press made this up, and the gay demonstration did not happen? Were these "stupid rednecks" outraged at nothing more than figments of their imaginations?

Sounds like his next movie will be a “great success.”

Yeah, like there's nothing a little queer about cage fighting and wrestling to begin with.....male audiences cheering on sweaty men in underwear while they prance and preen and grab each other...

This guy is a colossal A$$h0le, but as sick as he is anyone who goes to a cage fight and think that seeing two morons beat each other to a pulp is "Family values" is just as retarded.
That is "Manson Family Values".

I only like watching wimminz wrestle. Preferably topless in mud or oil.

Borat is brilliant, and he’s done it again. This time he’s gotten a bunch of lowlife rednecks violently outraged because they saw a silly, fake “gay” display, when they thought they were going to be watching oh-so-wholesome, um, CAGE FIGHTING!

I thought it was hilarious when I saw the story on Drudge. If it had been two women the reaction would have been quite different. Very hypocritical in my opinion! Homosexuality is homosexuality no matter which gender is involved. I would like to see this film.

Neither is a lot of this wrestling/cage fight stuff, so it's quite appropriate that the fans got trolled.

It's even funnier if you step back and think about the fact that the fans were paying to see a couple of guys grab all over each other while wearing skimpy outfights or tights, all the while workin' up a sweat. I'm not saying that professional wrestling is homoerotic or anything, but ummm... you couldn't pay me enough to put on tights and let another guy grab all over me.

Dang, you beat me too it. I'm glad I'm not the only one who has always thought this stuff was a little weird to begin with.

I caught a cousin who was into wrestling off guard one time. I told him "let's watch a show where a couple of guys wearing hardly anything rip their clothes up and keep jumping on top of each other", and he got upset and was asking me what kind of freak I was, and then I said "whoops, I meant to say let's watch some professional wrestling". I would be surprised if he ever watched any wrestling after that.

LOL! It'll never be the same for him.

I think that's the key right there. He was trying to paint them as a bunch of simple backwoods yokels. If I was in the audience, I would have been offended more by that than the kissing because it was a personal insult.

I'm sure that some people who attended realized that refused to play the game. I feel sort of bad for them (although they did get to see some real fights and $1 beers).

However, I have very little sympathy for the people who basically confirmed his stereotype and acted like children throwing tantrums. All they had to do was act like adults to get their revenge. They couldn't even manage that.

Maybe Rush and some evangelicals can go to San Francisco - advertise a bash as major S&M stuff that will make the sister of perpetual indulgence blush.

Then add an offer of unlimited dollar beers and wines - - and free condoms... When they're all hot and bothered, out of the "cage" jumps Rush, a preacher giving gays hell, and three reformed gays telling their stories.

Let's see if the liberals throw a few bottles...
