Sacha Baron Cohen Dupes Republicans Into Filming Ad About Arming Children

Sacha Baron Cohen Dupes Republicans Into Filming Ad About Arming Children

Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has shared an online preview of his new series Who Is America? before its release tonight.

In true Cohen style, it's uncomfortably controversial, to say the least.

Dressed up as Colonel Erran Morad, an Israeli anti-terror expert and self-proclaimed 'Terrorist Terminator', barely recognisable Cohen heads to Washington DC in search of congressional support for a brand new programme called Kinder Guardians.

Kinder Guardians, the entirely fictional programme, will train toddlers in the United States to use firearms in the event of an armed attacker entering their school, and will arm children from the ages of 4-12.

Sounds ridiculous, we know, but Cohen managed to gather several GOP lobbyists and lawmakers to sit for the camera, including pro-gun enthusiast Phillip Van Cleave.

Van Cleave, who has previously deemed guns as 'cool', cooperated with Cohen in a truly bizarre pre-school gun education video. In the clip, guns of all sorts were hidden in teddy bears and given names such as Uzicorn and Gunny Rabbit.

And not forgetting Dino-Gun, who 'spits his candy very fast'. At the end of the video, Van Cleave goes on to sing a remixed version of Heads Shoulders Knees and Toes, a warped version of the nursery rhyme said to help children aim at their targets more efficiently.

"I think it would be a good idea. We've been pushing something along these lines for years," Van Cleave said about the programme. "But there hasn't been any transaction with it." And if you think teddy bear guns and violent nursery rhymes were bad enough, wait until you see what lobbyist Larry Pratt had to say.

While expressing his support for the programme, Pratt says: "Toddlers are pure, uncorrupted by fake news of homosexuality. They don't worry if it's politically correct to shoot a mentally deranged gunman. They'll just do it."

And while we love the way Cohen satires the social situation of the US, the episode is just a little more than eye-opening.
