Borat makes prejudiced folks feel comfortable with their prejudices…obviously. Since a Jew stars in it, and insults Jews, why not other groups as well? Other good people in the act of being charitable are also insulted and ridiculed. It sounds like state-imposed welfare, or multiculturalism in practice. Bring all folks down to a sickening level that Hollywood stars think we are.p>This is just another example of the entertainment industry’s laziness and disdain for the public it is trying to extract more dollars from. br> — P. Aaron Jones br> Huntington Woods, Michigan /p> p> I am a great fan of Ben Stein and truly enjoy reading his columns, but I had a completely different take on this movie. I found the Borat character hilarious because of his mindless anti-Semitism, bigotry, and misogynous behavior. These are the people we are fighting the world over and I rather enjoy laughing at them. I did not see this as an attempt to make fun of decent Americans, I rather thought it showed us in a very favorable light while we try to be polite while dealing with this racist boob. We need to be deadly serious in dealing with these murderous insects and enjoy a laugh at their expense at every opportunity. br> — Bill White /p> p> Kudos to Ben Stein on the Borat review. He is absolutely right on all counts. I chuckled at a few things at the beginning of the movie but left the movie feeling disgusted and dirty. If I hadn’t been with someone else, I would have walked out. The fact that so many young people find it funny is very disturbing indeed. br> — Victoria M. McIntyre
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
