Editor's note: The video can be graphic for young viewers. Please proceed with caution.
Last month, Borat actor Sacha Baron Cohen released the first video of his new Showtime series Who Is America? The video featured Virginia Citizens Defense League President Philip Van Cleave who used stuffed animals to tell kids how to fire guns at the bad guys. In fact, Cohen and Van Cleave had an entire "how to" video for these preschool-aged children.
The second promo video of the series was released a few days ago. Cohen's character, Israeli terror expert Erran Morad, had a discussion with Youth Shooters of America President about promoting the shooting sports, particularly among kids.
“One time, in my nephew’s school a man came in and started shouting at them,” Cohen said. “The kids take out their guns and bang, bang, bang! That substitute never stood a chance.”
“Right, right,” Roberts replied.
“Two of the classmates shot, but mistakes are going to happen," Cohen replied.
“And it saves more lives that it harms," Roberts said.
To make matters even worse, Cohen tricked Roberts into putting a sex toy in his mouth as a means of surviving a terrorist beheading. The idea is that the victim bites the attacker's genitalia while yelling orders. Eventually the attacker will drop their weapon and the victim will no longer be in danger.
The Sad Reality
It's absolutely mind boggling that Roberts willingly went along with what "Erran Morad" suggested. Why would anyone in their right mind partake in this exercise? Most normal people would not meet someone and then participate in an exercise that involves putting a sex toy in their mouth.
This is only the second video in a string of them that we're going to see and guess what? So far, Cohen's desire to make gun owners look like idiots is working like a charm. Gun rights activists are falling right into Cohen's traps.
People like Roberts and Van Cleave might want to hang out with the crew at Warrior One Guns & Ammo in Riverside, California. Cohen tried to dupe the guys behind the counter but they quickly realized who he was and that his story made no sense.
If it's too good to be true, folks, it probably is.
