Borat and Haman

It's safe to be anti anti-Semitic only in the USA. Maybe Israel. Maybe. Try it in France and you'll get put on trial, like the late Oriana Fallaci. So it’s odd to hear America slammed as, in any way, anti-Semitic. More than odd. Nuts. That’s what Sacha Cohen slash Borat seems to think he needs to do. He told Rolling Stone that the sort of anti-Semitism he found -- or instigated -- in an Arizona bar was what leads to the Holocaust.

Hmm. I haven't seen the movie. Haven’t been to one in years. I’m too good for them. But I just know, as I just know so many things, that Borat is not about America. It's about humans. As I've been given to understand, so many of the dupes in the movie shine -- or so I would interpret it. They are patient and polite -- that is, they are virtuous. We must be kind to innocuous fools. The danger is that we will be soft with evil fools. That's where wisdom comes in -- knowing the appropriate action for the given time.

In contrast, the brash antics of young Cohen pale to a pastel yellow, when we remember that he could have been offensive in some other country, to his peril. One wonders why he doesn't develop an anti-Moslem character. Well, no -- one actually does not wonder. No doubt it would be just as hilarious -- up to the point he was killed. Recall Robert Redeker, compelled to go into hiding because he criticized the intolerance of Islam. Recall poor Denmark of the radioactive cartoons. Irony is apparently lost not only on the Moslems, but weirdly on the very clever and funny Cohen as well.

The movie is, I’m informed, a road trip through America, but it's not about America. It's about people. This is such a fundamental thing, yet it's often missed. I’ve made an observation about hard-left liberals, that is virtually diagnostic. They will, eventually, inevitably formulate some version of the sentence, "Americans are bad" -- some negative generality. If I’m feeling sociable I’ll ask, "Don't you mean people are bad?" "No! Americans!" The moderate, or sane liberals can be corrected. The goats separate themselves from the sheep.

Young Sacha was as yet unborn in the ‘60s, the salad days of today’s self-important gray eminences. It cannot be the balding semi-senescent cohort of baby boomers who swell the ticket sales of his movie film. The social content, if any, of the movie cannot be the draw. It’s a Jackass thing, and it’s a michael moore thing: over-the-top stunts combined with extreme social awkwardness. Hmm. That hardly seems polite. Not actually very virtuous. We may be amused, but we disapprove. (Yes, I’m the Queen.)

The difference between the prudes of today, and of yesteryear, is that we are right. The danger is not just coming, but here. The slippery slope of smutty slop has become a sheer escarpment, and the thin edge of the wedge has pried loose an avalanche of fecal matter.

The world must have its Borats -- with their misplaced talents and skewed allegiances. They'll always be with us, like orgies and abortions. But it makes one wonder. Maybe free speech ain’t always so good? Likewise the world will always have its Hamans -- Haman the Agagite? -- from the book of Ester? … remember? (He tried to get all the Jews killed. Sheesh. Read a book, will you?) We had thought the Agagites, congenital enemies of Israel, were a people swallowed into the dust. Seems not. Rather, their seed has spread across the continents. And to find the very descendants of the patriarch Levi -- as Cohen would be -- silent before such great evil, while picking at the mote in the eye of a dearest friend … well, is this right?

Not so much.

I have no intentions of seeing this movie ever. I find the whole storyline to be demeaning and an embarrassment to Americans.

I'm with you...why didn't he pick the Moslem society to ridicule?

go fuck a moslem faget. Sacha's jewish and he went down in history for doing the one and only Borat movie. Nobody does Borat better the Sacha Naom Baron COHEN THE JEW.

By the way, don't try so hard to emphasize that you haven't seen the Borat movie. The last thing ur sorry ass would wanna look like is a hypocrite.

Dear Gayboi:

You clearly haven't carefully read, or understood, this piece. I won't take the time here to do what your mommy should have done -- you wouldn’t understand it anyway -- but I do suggest you seek help, spiritual or medical, in dealing with your substance abuse problem. Searching blogs nightly at 1 a.m. for references to Borat, in between bouts of getting sodomized by Tijuana federales, is no way to live.

A little advice for the jack. Don't stereotype and don't even try to. It's only making you look stupid but not as stupid as ur blog (actually there pretty close). One other thing, if the Borat movie is such a disgrace and waste of time then why does a gullible fool like u take the time talking about it and even consider sharing ur own opinion about the film. Surely you would know better, buuuuttttttttttttttttttt u don't. (in other words, ur blog makes u look like a dumbfuck hypocrite and the sad thing is ur still going to foolishly try to defend urself about it--can't wait to read it) Anyways, keep up with the comments, it can only make a fool like u look good and give people like me who "needs there mommy", "can't understand" and "needs to seek help, spiritual or medical, in dealing with your substance abuse problem" a good laugh @ 1 am.

HAPPY TIMES little jack

Dear Gayboi -- am I to understand that you are also a bitch? If so, for purposes of clarity you may want to settle on just one self-description ... which is your most characteristic feature? -- your gayness, or your bitchhood? You seem more of a bitch to me, but that may just be your writing style, such as it is.

I sense that your mommy has not explained that which I forbore explaining. So tonight, while she's giving you your bath, ask her to tell you the definition (that means "what a word means") of "stereotype". Since it's clear from your misuse that you don't understand the word -- although you did spell it correctly -- good boi.

My blog makes me look like a "dumbfuck hypocrite" because that's what I am. No need to dwell on the obvious, is there? Please, let's move beyond that. As for my stupidity, alas, there's just nothing I can do about it. It's how I roll, dude. Don't want to be disagreeable, but I think I'm stupider than my blog, although we are both quite stupid. Thanks for pointing that out. I hadn't thought of it before. Of course. Let me return the favor: while you're being sodomized by those Mexican drug dealers? Be sure to insist that they use condoms. In fact, double up. Douching out your anus with Pepsi isn't enough. So many of your boifriends must have died already from AIDS, one might have hoped you'd be more careful. But it seems that you might be a little slow to catch on.

Now, your homework for tonight is: (a) Read the book of Ester, and write a 500 word essay on Haman and his driving motives. Connect your premise to the broadest applications of anti-Semitism; or (b) Present and defend a case for or against the behavior of Mel Gibson, using specific historical and philosophical examples. Relate your thesis to the principle of free speech and the rule of law. The assignment is due tomorrow.

Give my best to your mommy.

ahhhh, jack h doesn't like being my bitchhhh.. but hey thanks for changing the user name to something ur more secure about... pussy lips.

Anyways, like I was saying in the previous comment, ur a FUCKING LOOSER ;)

TO PROVE IT I HAVE PROVIDED A WONDERFUL LINK TO UR MYSPACE ACCOUNT SO THAT EVERYONE CAN SEE WHAT little jack IS ALL ABOUT...

enjoy it before little jack does something with his myspace account just like he did with my user name to protect his insecurity.

http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=138675865

Folk's, what this profile shows is exactly what I had predicted.

U R A 37 YEARS south pasadena, SINLGE, VIRGO that doesn't want any kids..

---TRANSLATION--- JACK H IS A 37 YEARS OLD MAN STILL LIVING AT HOME WITH HIS 2 DAD'S IN SOUTH PASADENA. THIS HAS CAUSED HIM TO GROW UP ALL ALONE AND REALIZE THAT HE IS GOING TO BE A SINLGE LOOSER FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE AND WOULDN'T WANT HIS KIDS TO EXPERIENCE SUCH SORROW THEREFORE HE CHOOSES NOT TO HAVE ANY KIDS :}


Dear Jack H,

I just want to thank you for being such a good sport and actually being gullibe enough to keep up with such stupid comments.

I don't know and I don't think I will ever know an idiot as gullibe as you little jack

In the meantime, I hope you never fall for these kinds of things because only idiots like you who percieve Sacha Baron Noam Cohen's film Borat as "bad natured" will always endure something like this in the end.

best wishes and happy times

Anaonaomuuse

Dear Gayboi -- Thanks for trying to set up a MySpace account for me. Did you use one of your old ones? A few errors in it, but that's to be expected. I'm not 37, I'm not in South Pasadena, I'm not sinlge, and I have kids.. Otherwise, good job. Well, you could have made up some interests for me that weren't your own. And honestly, Gayboi, couldn't you have at least provided some friends for me? Maybe some of yours? But maybe you don't consider the guys you gloryhole to be friends. Maybe you never got their names. Maybe you could check your anus for their DNA and have the authorities track them down. I'm sure they'd be in the data base -- although YOU don't think of it as a sex offense, it is. Honestly, Gayboi, since you don't have any friends, you could have just made some up -- taken the names off some of your gay porn. And you can consider me to be your friend. I've taken pity on you.

As for the Folk's, thei're not he're. Ii''ts just you' and me'e. Why? Because I'm such a looser, is why. Very, very loose. Sort of like your anus. But not for the same reason, enduring as you do things in the end. I'm a looser because I'm not understood. Oh why, why won't people understand me? Why, I say, and why again? Perhaps I'm too gullibe? Yes, that's it ... gullibe and also bad natured. Like Borat. Ooh! He's so "bad natured". (I'm quoting myself here.) "Bad natured", I say again, and once more, "bad natured"! And he's also gullibe.

As for your assignment, I'm afraid you've earned an F. Perhaps you think F stands for something you want up your anus? No, so sorry, Gayboi, you're just wrong. It stands for "Fail" -- as in *failure*.

Have your mommy explain it to you while you're drinking your warm milk.

Dear Gayboi --

Thank you for your private email to me. Although I'm answering here, be assured that I will respect your confidences. I do feel it is significant to mention that your email address prefix is HOTBOI4U, but I won't divulge if it's yahoo or hotmail or whatnot.

First let me say that I am flattered by your interest. But you must be aware that not everyone "swings that way," as you so quaintly put it. In any event, you are under age, so even if I were interested, I couldn't give you what you want ... in your words, "take me and make me you're screeeeaming biiiitchhhhh," or "spliiit me open like greeeeeennnn piiiine." I simply wouldn't.

I couldn't quite make out what you meant when you were talking about the drugs you use. I'm not sure what "pink raisons" are -- some sort of crystal meth derivative? -- or a designer PCP? That's just another reason why we can't "get it on," as you request.

Also, you seem to think that I'd be interested in the fact that you can stick firehoses and bedposts and sundry power tools into you anus. Gayboi, I am concerned about you. We haven't had a very substantial correspondence, but even these few brief exchanges have been enough for me to understand a few things about you. Please, Gayboi, I urge you to take stock of yourself.

You are young right now, and your judgment is unsound. But in a few years, when you get your GED, your perspective will be different. You will regret the tattoos of elephant penises on you face. You'll be disgusted by the memory of your excrement fetish. You'll come to see that incest with your grandfather is wrong, and horrifying to people of civilized sensibilities. You'll come to see that animals are not sexual objects. People find these things sick and disturbing. I know, you think it's funny now, and you enjoy these things in a bizarre and self-loathing way, but please, before it is too late, I urge you to take stock of yourself.

Start brushing your teeth. Start taking your medication -- herpes is very controllable, nowadays. Rectal syphilis is treatable. There are worse things than having chlamydia of the sinuses. It’s not too late, lad. That’s my point. You don’t always have to think of yourself as Gayboi. Heather is a perfectly fine name for a boy. And you are a good boy, despite what you’ve done -- all the shameful and insane things, too numerous and vile to mention. I believe in you. I have faith that you can live up to the potential that you were born with. Many people with a subnormal IQ live normal lives. Take heart, lad. Take heart.

Best wishes,

J

Dear Gayboi --

After your many confessions to me the other night, I'm surprised that you're still stuck on this. I thought our relationship had moved beyond such petty squabbling. But a dog returneth to its vomit. (Apt, since "dog" in the Semitic tongues denotes the "female" partner in a homosexual relationship -- your confessions to me have it that such is your proclivity.) Thanks for telling me how you set up that account for me. You do need to give me the password, though. Interesting stuff, about how to track down someone's MySpace account. Thanks for the input -- it might come in handy someday. So you got the email address from my profile and opened a Myspace site ... Gayboi, I hope you didn't spend a lot of time on this. I appreciate the effort and the interest -- it's a bit surprising, but nice ... sort of like your *other* interest in me. But, again, I don't really need either.

Also, you may want to go back and change a few details in your/my account. Your headline is "Gayboi in San Diago". You misspelled San Diego. And all those things about how "hot" you are for Borat, and for me ... it spoils your intent, non? I understand that you spend your evenings and nights, and mornings and afternoons, wasted on crack and Everclear, and cough syrup and furniture polish, but there must be some time when you're thinking sort of clearly? Again, I urge you to take stock, Gayboi. Please, for your own sake, and for the sake of all the many strange men who have so to speak loved you ... take stock!

Best,

J
