I notice that certain misguided radicals are praising the Zionist “comedian” Sasha Baron Cohen for making fun of Americans in his latest programme, The Borat Show. This is dangerously naive. Like Baron Cohen’s previous creation, Ali G, Borat functions to convey an essentially anti-Islamic and therefore racist and anti-socialist message. Every time he mocks anti-Semites he implicitly endorses Sharon’s genocidal plans for the Occupied Territories, and also absolves Americans of their guilt for worldwide imperialist atrocities by making it permissible to find them amusing rather than frightening. There can be no excuse for this and I am fucking annoyed at Channel 4, the TV station of the anti-war movement, for showing such propaganda on behalf of the liberal racist agenda.
