What exactly is the Borat movie poking fun at anyhow?

If you want to get literal about a stupid comedian's prank? Borat committed and act of fraud. He could have been prosecuted for this easily. They could take away his privilege of entering the US. They did not do that though. Have him do the same in China or Iran and see what happens to him. You could not pay me enough to get me to vote for a Republican or a Democrat but this is getting ridiculous. Siding with terrorists and dictators and attacking leaders of democracies? And then you want to be taken seriously? Strap bombs to your kids and prove who you support. Sadam will send you some money.

The site is a parody. The joke is really on those who give knee jerk responses without clicking the links. [edit on 2006/10/25 by GradyPhilpott]
Sacha Baron Cohen, who plays Borat, is himself Jewish. He explains his character's racist nature by stating that the segments are a "dramatic demonstration of how racism feeds on dumb conformity, as much as rabid bigotry," rather than a display of racism by Baron Cohen himself.
However, the Anti-Defamation League, a prominent Jewish anti-racism group, complained to HBO after Borat performed a country western song that called on people to 'throw the Jew down the well', warning them that 'you must be careful of his teeth' and that 'you must grab him by his horns', to applause and participation from some members of an audience in Tucson, Arizona, USA. The full chorus goes: "Throw the Jew down the well/So my country can be free/You must grab him by his horns/Then we have a big party."

Borat is just one of a number of characters from the hugely popular show in the UK, Ali G, that has been going for over 5 years so i doubt he will dissapeaear in the next 6 months. Sacha Cohen(Borat) recently went to Texas where he lambasted republican supporters over the Iraq war ...

If this guy is so smart and he loves to attack everyone for a laugh and for profit then when am I going to see him attack Israel or its people? Just like Alex Jones.. shilling for the home team if you ask me.
Regardless of the source, the interview DID happen and the White house comments WHERE made

The President is calling on all Americans who oppose terror to avoid Borat in person, on TV, and on the big screen.”
