Never said I would watch it. Did you read what I said? American Vets are not snowflakes and don't deserve this rudeness.

Enjoy yourself. I am an American and appreciate our Veterans who do not deserve your rudeness or Sacha's. Been to GB-wouldnt want to live there and won't make fun of your country's military vets.

Well i am sure i could offend the UK if i wanted. The thing is....what purpose would i be serving? His is great social commentary if you look past tbe surface....
I would say that I hope he didnt pose as an officer or made false claims of serving......tgat is some no kidding jail time.



He’s a clever man and his lawyers would have told him what he can and can not do

I’m guessing if you are acting you can get away with impersonating a soldier in uniform or should other actors be concerned now that they might be lined up against a wall and shot for being filmed in uniform

If you really wanted to poke fun at our British bros, you could point out that 50% of the aircraft in their flyover for the RAF's 100 year anniversary were american made.

Sarah Pale-in is lower than a bug (sorry if I insulted all BUGS).

Sacha Baron Cohen is a Jewish/British great comedian and he is famous for this sort of “humor”! Remember “Borat”? He insulted/impersonate the entire American and Kazakhstanis nation and we all laughed at it.




Get over it Pale-in…!

From what I am reading the guy triggers some people with his brand of comedy. Meh...so what. BTW until today I had never heard of him but this thread has me a little interested.

I guess it is true that any publicity is good publicity because without this thread I would have remained oblivious to his work.

Looked a bit into this before I head to bed. It seems his team did some research before he did all this and he should be ok with impersonating a veteran -- it is covered under the 1st Amendment.

Stolen Valor Act of 2005 was passed under Bush that would have outlawed something like this, but then later in 2012 in United States vs Alvarez the Supreme Court found it unconstitutional. He should be ok legally, but it will still create a storm in the media. Just what he and Showtime can hope for.

Clearly we need to censor comedians, how dare they make fun of people, how dare they push the envelope. How dare they make insensitive jokes.

To all you numpties that miss it the above statement was sarcasm..... Ugh... I'm so sick of you thin skinned sad excuses for human beings, go crawl back under your rock where you belong.

I think you should all lighten up a bit.
It's satire.
Oh and don't push all that #e about you lot saving us yeah you helped but the Russians were the real guys who helped the most.


They helped so much you guys wanted to invade Russia immediately.

But that's not the point of this thread.

The world needs more of this


Sacha is a champ at exposing idiotic bias, I miss this fella so much... Borat was gold when I was a kid, I've watched most of his interviews. I still remember when he got a Cambridge professor to admitting that men are smarter than woman.

Stupid is as stupid does, and Sacha sure loves catching people in the act.

Can't wait


Edit - Sarah Palin most definitely deserves to be made a fool.
In the current times I believe satirical commentary is needed more than anything else.


with you all the way
sacha is awesome. his stuff is great.

cant wait to watch

Don't suppose you could record a version of that and load it on YouTube or something, I believe it may generate a few laughs....

Good Idea. Just need a catchy title. We play both anthems at Retreat every day on Mildenhall and Lakenheath. I will stand next to one of our KC-135's for effect.
