A Republican lawmaker from Georgia is facing calls to resign after he was recorded exposing himself and repeatedly screaming the n-word during an appearance on Sacha Baron Cohen’s new Showtime series “Who Is America?”
On Sunday night’s episode, the comedian plays Israeli military expert Erran Morad and convinces Georgia state Rep. Jason Spencer to film an “anti-terrorism video.”
Spencer, who recently was defeated in the GOP primary after serving four terms, gives an offensive impression of a “Chinese tourist” in the episode and stabs a knife into a mannequin wearing a hijab.
The second lesson was how to stop a kidnapping. Cohen urged Spencer to do something that attracts attention. Spencer ran around on the mat shouting the N-word over and over again.
Finally, Cohen convinced Spencer that the one thing Muslims fear most is homosexuals and the possibility of being turned into a homosexual. He got Spencer to drop his pants and his bright red boxer-briefs to threaten an imaginary terrorist with his backside.
“I’ll touch you with my buttocks,” Spencer ran after Cohen shouting.
According to the NY Times:
Last summer, Mr. Spencer got into a Facebook exchange with a former Georgia lawmaker, an African-American attorney named LaDawn Jones, who supported the removal of Confederate statues. In a comment that had threatening racial overtones, Mr. Spencer told Ms. Jones: “Looks like you are afflicted with the same poison you claim to fight against. I can guarantee you won’t be met with torches but something a lot more definitive. People in South Georgia are people of action, not drama.” He added that people who want the statues removed “will go missing in the Okefenokee,” referring to a swamp in Georgia.
