Sacha Baron Cohen Infiltrates Right-Wing Militia Event With Racist Sing-Along

Needless to say, it was a somewhat unwelcome surprise to organisers when Cohen - dressed in a red skivvy and blue overalls, fake beard, and a huge hat - proceeded to play a song that referenced a number of far-right and racist conspiracies, from the coronavirus being a hoax, to it being created in a lab in Wuhan, to threatening to "inject [Obama] with the Wuhan flu".

Captioning the now-viral video, Rex said: "Dressed as a hillbilly, Sasha Baron Cohen infiltrated a rally being held by "The Washington State Three Percenters" - a right wing militia group - and took over the stage".

It gets worse: "Obama what we gonna do/Inject him with the Wuhan flu", he sang in the chorus. Lock her up like we used to do.

The song included lines like "chop them up like the Saudis do", an apparent reference to the murder of a journalist and critic of the Saudi regime, along with the lyric "nuke them up like in World War II". Dr. Fauci, what we gonna do?

The lyrics of Cohen's song also mentioned CNN, which "spread fake news, they controlled by you-know-whos - George Soros and his nasty friends".

Sacha Baron Cohen has pulled off his latest prank.

After organisers cottoned on to the stunt, they attempted to take him off stage and unplug the power, but Cohen was one step ahead with a team of security guarding the generator.

The event was organised by the Washington 3%, a far-right militia group that's believed to have espoused white nationalist rhetoric in the past, though they deny this.

One city councilman reportedly said that not everyone at the rally was pleased with Cohen's antics, and that the comedian was eventually whisked away by security when the crowd turned on him.
