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.”

    Please people for PEACE sake leave MUSLIMS alone. Don’t make jokes about them, don’t touch their holy books,don’t criticize them,let them follow their doctrines.Just let them be.

  2. Ps be upon him

    By all means, leave the Muslims alone to follow their doctrines:

    The Prophet (Ps be upon him) said:

    “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him” (Bukhari 9.84.57)

    This doctrine is implemented today as this:

    A trial court in Iran has issued its final verdict, ordering a Christian pastor to be put to death for leaving Islam and converting to Christianity, according to sources close to the pastor and his legal team.

    “The world needs to stand up and say that a man cannot be put to death because of his faith,” said Jordan Sekulow, executive director of The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ).

    “This one case is not just about one execution. We have been able to expose the system instead of just letting one man disappear, like so many other Christians have in the past.”

  3. brilliant satire

    A cultural learning for make benefit of glorious State of Barbados and BTA!

    The Dictator is brilliant satire. It is also a movie that will drive the Arabs wild with rage. They can’t take a joke. They can’t take the truth in the humour. Islam and Arabs cannot stand to be mocked because Arabs are taught that their 7th century standards are the pinnacle of all possible achievement. Mohammed was the perfect man who must be emulated. That he was a man who had sex with a nine year old girl, murdered prisoners taken in battle and raped their daughters and wives, and declared that there is no freedom to leave Islam under penalty of death is the truth. It is ‘perfect’ behavior and a ‘perfect’ example from the ‘perfect’ man who founded the ‘perfect’ religious, political and law system.

    The Dictator is really all about Mohammed.

    BFP’s islamophobic rants are one of the odd things about this site. The first thing which is odd about it is that it has nothing to do with Barbados: it involves discussion, very strangely slanted, about events in the US, the middle east, Nigeria etc. And it is usually, as in this story, about the most tiny trivial irrelevant events– in this case a bit of marketing by Sacha Baron Cohen for a media product he’s making money from. Now its okay to pay attention to this, but why this priority? Why not pay attention to Icelandic citizens voting not to make its bankers’ debts into the national debt, why not have Barbadians discussing how people in Wall Street and Madrid and London who are rising up against the rule by the bankers and the 1%? The Occupy movement has been the most important social movement in the west over the last year, and one with great potential relevance to Barbados, and not a word from BFP! Is it that you like to stir the sxxx in terms of political gossip, but that actually you are a little afraid of a real movement for social change coming from below?

    On your islamophobia, I don’t see a lot of muslims dressed in uniforms invading other people’s countries and killing millions of people. I do see a lot of Americans and British people doing so. With no comment from you…. (BTW I wonder (I’m presuming here you are christian) if an Arab film about Christians as cannibals (you know all this eating the body of christ and drinking his blood every sunday) would be funny or in bad taste for you? ) But lets stick to serious things: MIT Centre for International Studies asserts that the Iraq War and is aftermath caused between 800,000 and 1.3 million deaths: that is a figure that exceeds the Fordham University estimate of deaths in the Rwandan genocide, and it is 4 times the number of people who Saddam Hussein killed in a 25 year regime. How about some outrage about that BFP?

    Hello Lysander, (good aircraft, bye the way. Used for dropping off and picking up secret agents in Europe in the middle of the night during the Second World War.)

    There are many topics that we touch only tangentially, not because of any particular aversion to the topic but only because each of us here has their own interests. If we don’t do stories on Christians running amok and killing people because someone burned a bible or dunked a cross in a jar of urine, I suppose that might be due to the lack of news stories about Christians hacking people to death over burned bibles. If you can find some, by all means write them up and we’ll post them if for no other reason than to please a reader and encourage input and discussions of all flavours.

    I’ve done a story or two on depleted uranium munitions left all over the Middle East by the Americans and Brits, and about the CIA connection to the bombing of the Cubana DC8 off Seawell.

    We run a Muslim story once in a while to remind Bajans and our 2 million visitors a year from around the world that Islam is in need of reform and is no friend of human rights or the rights of women. As to it not mattering to Bim, have a look over the horizon and you’ll see that the Trinis have a lesson or two that we might want to avail ourselves of.

    But the left generally looks the other way when Islam is involved: Let a mid-level manager get drunk at an office party, misread a smile from a female and give her ass a squeeze and that’s a national story in the UK or America for months. Mention though, that rapes in Norway have skyrocketed in the last ten years 3000% and in the last five years ALL (yes all) convicted and suspect rapists have been ‘non-western’ immigrants and the Left for some reason starts to say it’s ‘racist’ to mention this connection between the culture of the men and their crime of rape.

    According to the NRK, police figures from Olso reveal that over the past three years, they have investigated a total of 41 cases of rape in that city. All of these assaults, reports NRK, were carried out by “non-western immigrants to Norway.”

    As a senior Oslo police official (a woman btw) put it: “The perpetrators are relatively young men who come from other countries… with a completely other view on women than we have in Norway.” (Source: YouTube newscast here)

    We at BFP believe that the continuing encroachment of Islamic standards and laws onto our culture and laws is the largest single threat to personal freedom in the next 20 or 30 years. It is certainly the largest threat to the advances women have made in the last 100 years in Barbados and throughout Western civilization. To us, that’s a big deal.

    Lysander: If you have a story that’s important to you, then write it up with sources and we’ll run it – or you can start your own blog at WordPress.com and have it up and running in about ten minutes.

    “the continuing encroachment of Islamic standards and laws onto our culture”… read that aloud and ask yourself if you’re not hearing the voice of a paranoid lunatic. I mean, what are you talking about? There is no evidence of any ‘islamic standards and laws’, if anything its the reverse, as moslems are forced to adapt to standards and norms coming from the west.

    You parrot the myth that’s in circulation on the islamphobic web about rapes in Norway. But mate, the only important terrorist violence in Scandinavia EVER has been done by rightwing islamophobic nuts, most spectacularly Brevik last July in Norway.

    Stop spreading hate and fear. Its precisely the internet mongering of islamophobia which produced Brevik. Are you going to be satisfied when some Christian nut in Barbados commits some atrocity on its tiny muslim population, which is not interfering with anyone?

  8. Lysander

    Before you repeat a hate-mongering lie about muslims driving a rape epidemic in Norway you might want to read and digest this:

    http://electronicintifada.net/blog/ali-abunimah/debunked-zionist-and-islamophobic-libel-rape-epidemic-muslims-norway

  9. akabozik

    Wow. That report posted by Lysander does more harm to his case than good. BFP is off claiming 100% of the rapes were done by foreigners in Norway. It looks like only about 87% of the rapes were done by primarily Middle East / African / Asian immigrants or Norway citizens of those backgrounds. I watched the video BFP links to, it’s a high ranking chief saying ‘Houston, we’ve got a problem and it’s not with born in Norway rapists”

    How can Lysander credibly argue that there isn’t a problem with Mussy immigrants and treatment of women both muslim immigrant women and born in UK/European women?

    The muslim poor treatment of women is not up for any discussion. Honour killings spiking in the UK and North America. “no go” zones in London where gangs put up signs saying “Sharia Compliant Zone”. People like Lysander can argue details and fractions of percentiles but they never address the core issues except to dismiss them out of hand.

    What does Lysander think about Iran sentencing a Christian pastor to death for converting from Islam? Is that okay? Why shouldn’t we in the UK be concerned if that is the pure Islam put into practice? Can Lysander find a preponderance of Islamic scholars willing to say that Mo’head was wrong to say Muslim apostates should be killed?

  10. Stop female genital mutilation

    Female genital mutilation is the ultimate rape. Stop female genital mutilation!

  11. clipper

    ” free speech and human rights are forbidden topics when the subject is Islam.”

    Too true BFP!

  12. yatiniteasy

    If we should respect the Quran because not doing so causes Muslims to get angry and kill, then here are the other things we should stop doing:

    Educating women. Selling alcohol. Pre-marital sex. Sharing a
    non-Muslim religious faith. Democracy. Disaster relief. Sporting
    events. Allowing women to dress as they please. Being gay. Being Hindu. Being Christian. Being Jewish. Being Buddhist. Being Sikh. Being Ahmadi. Being Sufi. Going to the wrong mosque…

    The above comes from a very informative website, which is not based on hysteria, but on FACTS of actual events involving Islam extremists in various parts of the World.

    Islamophobia can only be defined as an unreasonable fear of islam.
    Phobias are unreasonable, irrational fears.
    Fears are normal, rational justifiable fears.
    We all have normal fears, usually quite justifiable.
    A few disturbed individuals harbour unreasonable fears: these are termed phobias.

    To be afraid of a political system posing as a religion
    in order to secure for itself certain Western religious freedoms
    while seeking total absolute world dominance, upon pain of death
    as described in their manual and articles of association
    can hardly be characterised as a phobia. That is a ration fear

    It is a very real concern to freed 21st. Century individuals,
    and it DOES apply to Barbados, and to all Caribbean territories currently languishing under the perceived ‘safety’ of idle Christianity!

  14. Blurb from book: "Islam is your birthright!" lol

    “Each person is born in a religious environment that is not of his/her own choice.
    From the very beginning of human existence in this world, they are assigned the religion of their family or the ideology of the state.
    By the time individuals reach their teens they usually accept the beliefs of their parents or that of their particular society.
    However, when some people mature and are exposed to other beliefs and ideologies, they begin to question the validity of their own beliefs.
    Seekers of truth often reach a point of confusion upon realizing that believers of every religion, sect, ideology and philosophy all claim to have the one and only correct religion or ideology.
    There are only three possibilities.
    They are either all correct; all wrong or only one is correct and the rest are wrong.
    They cannot all be right since all religions are different from each other in their fundamentals.
    Furthermore, the majority claim that they alone are correct and the rest are wrong. “

    This writing above seeks to have those who find Xianity a bit lacking
    convert over to islam……
    check it out here..

    but how about if this recruitment effort went the other way…
    e.g. islams who find their stuff a bit heavy and absurd as it relates to life in the 21st.Century
    and want to convert over to Buddhism, or Tao, or to Xianity…?

    do islams have that option to fling aside that which they find themselves unfortunately born into?
    and adopt another eligion? or even go Atheist/Agnostic?

    Not if allah my boy has anything to do with it.
    The penalty is DEATH!
    There is no converting from islam….only unto death!

    TAO is your birthright: convert NOW
    Christianity is your birthright.
    Atheism is your birthright.
    JUDAISM is every muslm’s birthright: convert NOW!
    I DARE YOU.

    As a citizen of the United States of America, and one who is cognizant of the social, political, economic, religious realities which is taking place in this country. I take offense to Aladdin ill-informed comment that America is the Great Satan.

    Many would agree wholeheartedly that America has blood on her hands. Let’s us say with respect to the treatment of her minority population, this is a given. But nevertheless, we all know that in the laboratory of life, good and evil reigns rather equally.

    But whether rightly interpreted or wrongfully conceived, the United States of America has done plenty good, or though some dear not admit this fact.

    Hasn’t for the millions of America dollars which is sent by immigrant families; who resides In the United States of America or world be a quite different place doesn’t you think?
    Finally, I’m going to be frank here, there are something I truly hate about the United States of America, and on the other hand, there are things I love that is absent in the Barbadian society.
    There are many ethical upstanding people in the United States of America, and to unilaterally or arbitrarily paint with a broad brush, the collective America populace. Just because some of our governmental policies undermine the standards of the international community is just unfounded in my opinion.

    Akabozik: read the police report which is in the file attached- it shows that the vast majority of rapes committed in Norway were commited by Norwegians and people of European extraction. There are no “gangs creating sharia only zones” in London except in the minds of racist tabloid editors
    BFP: be responsible citizens and stop promoting hate and fear.

  18. Name

    Within America there are many America’s –good and bad.

    Most I’ve come across are pleasant places

  19. Mark Fenty

    Name, within Barbados there are many Barbados’s good and bad. That argument is applicable to any country, my friend.

  20. I hate racism

    Muslims do this muslims do that how can you guys say that you get bad people from all religions yh just cos a few muslims do bad dont mean all muslims do the same and as for all the quotes and justifications your gettin ur saying ther from actual sources yes they are they are from antiislamic sources if u got the brains y not try readin the quran for yourself rather than gettn bullshit from the net. Ur sayn u shouldn b gay if u take a look in your own religious books they also say the same so dont go segregating muslims. Muslims also believe in moses and jesus so how can u single out islam. Go do yourself a favour and read the real books rather than the fake islamaphobic websites

  21. Yes leave muslims alone don’t touch their holy books etc.
    Well what about the muslims have some respect for jews and other religions.
    It’s OK for Muslims to call Jews satanic Devils, it’s OK for Muslims to call Jews the sons of Apes & Pigs, it’s OK for Muslims to grab a seven year old
    Jewish girl in Toulon, France by her hair and then blow her brains out.
    Respect for muslims when they learn respect for others, until that time they can go to f—–k hell.

  22. Alicia Bernard

    Most of you talked in none educated way.
    1- Mohammed did not have sex with 9yrs old girl. I’m Not obligated to write the entire true story. it is your job to read the book (Qura’an) and get the right source of explanations. Oh and by the way, read the unit in the Qura’an about our MOTHER “Virgin Mary” let me see how bad you gonna talk about Islam religion again.
    2- Mohammed did not say “Kill people if they weren’t Muslim” or “you SHOULD convert to Islam or you gonna die” Prophet Mohammed is bigger than your ignorance honey. and these sites are nothing but a hated to Discredit Islam for their own interest.
    3-When you say Muslim” did this and that” you are talking about all of them, if fact those people who call themselves Muslims and kill people, let me tell you this and be happy “THEY ARE NOT MUSLIMS” in fact, the Muslims in Midd-east against them, I think you all watched the news how people their fought starving for democracy like in Iraq, Egypt and Libya.
    4- You still think Islam people are bad and terror, let me tell you this: at least they werent and still not racist against the color of the people (KKK). Or Destroyed two innocent Japanese cities. Isn’t that a terrorist attack? or what do you consider it?
    5- Conclusion: in the whole world there is the good and bad. EVERYWHERE so you should educate your-self and have a little philosophy mind (Open Minded).
    BTW: I’m an Atheist.
