I think he’s right. For Sarah to criticize a veteran of the service is appalling and he deserves a public apology from Vice-president Sarah Plain.

A quote from Sacha Baron Cohen, the famous Jewish Arab



The fictional right-wing conspiracy theorist is disputing Palin’s claim that he presented himself as a veteran: ‘I was in the service—not military, but United Parcel.’


Believe me, if you ever worked at UPS you might as well have been in the Army!!!!




In a long Facebook post this week, Sarah Palin admitted that she had been “duped” by comedian Sacha Baron Cohen for his new Showtime series Who Is America?, called him “evil,” “exploitive” and “truly sick,” and challenged him to donate the proceeds to pro-veterans charities. Today, she got her response.


www.thedailybeast.com...


As his new character Dr. Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr. PhD, founder of TruthBrary.org (as opposed to LIEbrary, get it?), Baron Cohen submitted this official letter, addressed to “Vice-President Palin.” Dr. Ruddick explained that he did not claim to be a “War Vet,” as Palin said, but rather said he was “in the service—not military, but United Parcel.” He added that he “only fought for our country once—when I shot a Mexican who came onto my property.”

After praising Palin for “TELLING THE TRUTH about Obama’s birth certificate and the location of Russia,” he accused her of “bleedin’ FAKE NEWS.”


“You used to hunt the most dangerous animals in the country, like wolves and people on welfare,” he wrote. “So why hunt a fine citizen journalist like myself?” The letter ended with the words, “I DEMAND an APOLOGY.”

You know that wouldn't be a bad idea.

This place is getting pretty bad.

All serious all the time.

No sense of humor, no perspective, just obsessional politics

and we wonder why the country is so messed up

Btw I'll put up my serious OP's against yours or anyone else any day of the week

That POS deserves a slap in the face, not an apology. He's a complete fraud, and a vile person, to boot. No, his job delivering boxes is NOT the same as military service.

Surely you can't be serious.

Fraud?

He's probably one of the smartest people in Hollywood, does tonnes of charity work and personally I think he's hilarious. Yeah his comedy is based on trolling people bit I find it a refreshing way to raise awareness on issues society face.

Can't really fault him tbh, I certainly wouldn't call him vile.

I get that, but I don't see anything funny in disrespecting veterans, and lying to score political brownie points. Rea humor, sure, and I can even laugh at things some might find offensive, but he was being a real jerk, and pretending to be a veteran, while at the same time insulting to veterans. I can laugh at stereotypes, as far as that goes, but this wasn't done in fun.

Never heard of him before this incident. Don't care to see him now. Mocking veterans isn't my idea of humor. Military jokes? Sure; they can be funny. What he did, I don't see as funny. How does pretending to be a disabled veteran, and making all sorts of outrageous comments about guns, strike anyone as "humor"? I just don't see that as funny. Did watch a video recently, of a fellow talking of an outing with military guys he knew. Done in jest, and some hilarious material, but he wasn't trying to be demeaning. This Cohen guy was. With real disabled vets being treated like crap by the VA, labeled as "potential terrorists" by the previous administration, etc, what this guy did was indeed vile. Demanding an apology, after that? I'd love to tell him to his face what I think of his behavior.
