'The Dictator' Sacha Baron Cohen commends Stephen Harper for silencing media
"If there was ever an argument against democracy, it is Stephen Harper," said 'The Dictator' General Aladeen (a fictional character played by UK comedian Sacha Baron Cohen) in a predictably bizarre interview with CBC's The Hour host George Stroumboulopoulos.
"I mean, what sort of man is he? He's only got one wife. And he's got one stylist...you know he has his wigs done in Wadiya."
The dictator of the fictional country of Wadiya gave kudos to Prime Minister Stephen Harper for his stance on press freedom.
"I commend your leaders on silencing your media. For the last 10 years, I have not even heard a single noteworthy event happening in Canada. The people in Wadiya, they are very similar to you Canadians. Their greatest strength is sitting quietly, politely obeying without question."
