Desdemona BS: Borat film exploits Romanian gypsies (140* d) RE: BS: Borat film exploits Romanian gypsies 16 Nov 06

"People who consent to aggression and back leaders who are war criminals deserve to be embarrassed now and then"...exactly! The guy at the rodeo, who was giving Borat chapter and verse about how he ought to shave off his mustache so he wouldn't be mistaken for a terrorist, and shouldn't kiss people so as not to be taken for "one of those", just illustrates the point.

It was simultaneously hilarious and deeply disturbing that the crowd, inspired to cheers by Borat's affirmation of his country's support for the "war of terror", continued to clap at the wish that GW would "drink the blood of every man, woman and child in Iraq", only starting to boo when the Star Spangled Banner was set to the lyrics of a fictional "Kazakh" national anthem.

Unfortunately, sometimes it takes having something unpleasant shoved right under your nose to force you to examine a little more closely.
