Stop what you're doing and watch this clip right now. It's from Sacha Baron Cohen's new Showtime TV show, "Who Is America."

This seems really dumb. Are we sure this wasn't comedy and then edited to make it look like they really support this? Damn, I seriously can't trust anything nowadays.

In exactly what context would these guys saying these things be okay? The senators / congressmen are not denying that they said these words nor that they said them with seriousness. They admit to being "duped" because Cohen claimed to be giving them an award, but otherwise they have owned the comments and been embarrassed by them.

It is crazy to me that your takeaway is "I can't trust what I see" instead of taking it for what it is--people protecting their income stream, regardless of the consequences to others.

Why wait until 2 yrs old? I'm sure a kid just learning to walk could set up claymore mines.

That clip is pretty brutal. "I *am* racist, against Muslims!" "We don't need them here. We already have blacks here, and we 'tolerate' them!" etc. I also like how they wouldn't want a mosque in their town even if it brought in over $380 million to their city, LMAO. That is such a gigantic amuont of money to turn away just because of discrimination.

Cohen's show is a bit uneven, but he does a great job exposing how stupid some of these people are. He got that one Georgian state congressman to resign after shouting the "N word" and exposing his bare butt.
