Sacha Boren Cohen Finds out about NRA secrets
Sacha Boren Cohen on his showtime series ‘Who is America’ finds something about the NRA that they wouldn’t reveal otherwise. Cohen was dressed up as a military commando, and pretended to be an Israeli agent. Apparently, Cohen was out on a mission to see if they could arm students and even toddlers in schools to defend themselves against shooting attacks.
This episode of ‘Who is America’ has gotten a lot of people to talk about it. But what’s the big deal? Sacha Boren is getting conservative politicians to endorse that toddlers should be taught how to use firearms. Even though, the comedian got a lot of these conservatives to support his idea, they are all denouncing the comedian after knowing his true intentions. Almost all of them are claiming that Cohen tricked them into doing this.
During this particular episode, Sacha Cohen exposed Georgia State Representative Jason Spencer who even yelled racial epithets. His behavior on the show was greatly condemned by people everywhere. The Governor of Georgia himself made a tweet saying that it was unacceptable.
The actions and language used by Jason Spencer are appalling and offensive. There is no excuse for this type of behavior, ever, and I am saddened and disgusted by it.

Later, Spencer claimed that Cohen was simply trying to take advantage of his paralyzing fear. He said that he and his family were constantly under threats from as assassin. He further added that Sacha Boren Cohen and his crew manipulated his fears and asked him to be a part of self-defense training. He was further asked to pose for a video giving similar training to kids in Israel. He claimed that,
Sacha Baron Cohen and his associates took advantage of my paralyzing fear that my family would be attacked. In posing as an Israeli Agent, he pretended to offer self-defense exercises. As uncomfortable as I was to participate, I agreed to, understanding that these ‘techniques’ were meant to help me and others fend off what I believed was an inevitable attack. My fears were so heightened at that time, I was not thinking clearly nor could I appreciate what I was agreeing to when I participated in his ‘class.’ I was told I would be filmed as a ‘demonstration video’ to teach others the same skills in Israel.
Spencer also claimed regretting his language, and that he would have never done this if he wasn’t so fearful.
Sacha Boren Cohen has always used different characters and his comedy to interview people without them knowing. Previously, he has gone after multiple celebrities and politicians. This time, it was conservative politicians only. His video has drawn remarks from almost everyone across the country. Some people believe that the way Sacha dealt with conservatism prevalent today in America is the only way you can get people to reveal something. But others totally are against such unethical stunts.
The fact is that politicians reflected their true opinions and then redacted them saying it was just out of fear or that they were tricked when their opinions turned out to be unpopular. The world has come to a point where to investigate the real truth, you need to deceive people.
Or perhaps Sacha Boren Cohen needs to adopt other methods to find the truth. Many have differing views on this but it can be said that this series is certainly bringing deep insight into the critical political issues we face today.
