[/size]

    [size=-1]After telling the crowd he supported America's war on terrorism, he said, "I hope you kill every man, woman and child in Iraq (news - web sites), down to the lizards ... And may George W. Bush drink the blood of every man, woman and child in Iraq." He then sang a garbled version of "The Star-Spangled Banner." [/size]

    [size=-1]The Roanoke Times reported that the crowd turned "downright nasty." One observer said "If he had been out there a minute longer, I think somebody would have shot him." [/size]

    Cohen and his film crew were escorted out of the Salem Civic Center and told to leave the premises. [/size]


    [size=-1]"Had we not gotten them out of there, there would have been a riot," rodeo producer Bobby Rowe told the paper. "They loaded up the van and they screeched out of there." [/size]

    [size=-1]It is not the first time Cohen has wooed controversy with his show, which airs on Channel 4 in the UK and on HBO in the United States. In one episode last year, Borat sang an anti-Semitic song called "Throw the Jew Down the Well" at a U.S. country music bar, prompting protests from the U.S-based Anti-Defamation League. [/size]

    [size=-1]Producers of the Ali G show, Talkback Thames, were unavailable for comment. [/size]

    I'm not the biggest Bush-backer or anything, but that was just downright vile and despicable. I hope HBO takes him off the air.

    throw the jew down the well

    He might've gone a little too far this time, but com'on...Borat (Sacha Baron Cohen) duping an entire bar of hicks into singing one of the most heinous antisemitic songs ever is satire at it's finest.
