Academy Awards running scared: Bans Sacha Baron Cohen for mocking Muslim dictators

Leader of Republic of Wadiya says “Death to America. And good luck, Billy Crystal. You’re fantastic.”

The mainstream media is trying hard to stay away from this story, but in the age of the internet who gives a damn about the mainstream media?

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences banned British and Jewish comedian Sacha Baron Cohen from the upcoming Oscars. The politically correct reason is that they feared he would ‘do something’ on the red carpet and upset the evening.

Cohen had requested permission to walk the red carpet in costume as Admiral General Shabazz Aladeen, his character in the upcoming film “The Dictator” (Republic of Wadiya website!), then change into a tux before proceeding inside. That’s it. That’s all he did: request permission. The Academy said “no” and cancelled his tickets.

What’s it really all about?

The Oscars are broadcast around the world, including throughout the Middle East and South East Asia. “The Dictator” is Cohen at his best – this time as a Middle East dictator “who risks his life to ensure that democracy never comes to the country he so lovingly oppressed.”

In a time when everyone is walking on eggshells lest they set off yet another day’s murderous rampage by offended Muslims, Sacha Baron Cohen is not welcome at the Oscars because free speech and human rights are forbidden topics when the subject is Islam.

Now the Academy (or as the Leader of Wadiya calls them: the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Zionists) is trying to find a graceful way out of the mess they created by grovelling on their knees in fear of violent Muslims.

Cohen couldn’t have bought this kind of publicity for his new movie for millions and millions.

Hey… that’s the answer! The whole thing is a Zionist plot out of Hollywood.

There. I feel much better!

“Good morning, great Satan of America. How are you? I am fine, thank you. On behalf of the nation of Wadiya, I am outraged at being banned from the Oscars by the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Zionists. While I applaud the Academy for taking away my right to free speech, I warn you that if you do not lift your sanctions and give me my tickets back by 12 p.m. on Sunday, you will face unimaginable consequences…

Furthermore, it is an act of aggression that no Wadiyan films have been recognized by the Academy. Where are the nominations for such classic films as “When Harry kidnapped Sally”, “You’ve got mailbomb” or “Planet of the Rapes” ?

…On top of all of this, I paid Hillary Swank $2 million to be my date and she will not refund a penny. My Sunday calendar is now as empty as a North Korean grocery store.

But whatever happens, I still plan to attend director Brett Ratner’s afterparty, since it is impossible to catch herpes twice. Death to the West. Death to America. And good luck, Billy Crystal. You’re fantastic.”
