Borat banned in Russia?

Lighten up Pooty-Poot......

It's a movie.

Other nations are thinking of banning it.

Guess the Russians don't want to enrage Gypsy, Jewish,
Kazakhstan, etc. existing racist, hatred feelings....which
considering some of the violence in the areas and nations
we've may be well founded to have such fears.

It would be sad to see someone hurt because they took the
movie as an excuse to really hate someone or group. Why
would they.

Dixie Chicks - that's lack of freedom of speech and expression.
If they released his movie ,and no one wanted to pay to see it,
that's consumer expression. Much like you've experienced.
Some want to pay to see you, some don't. Either way, you three
ladies make millions and get more famous. That's not suppression
of speech - that's capitalism. Good old fashioned capitalism.

But, it's a comedy, a fake documentary, a joke.
Disgusting jokes, but still humorous. It's too bad it is
facing any form of bans.

Didn't Putin make a rape joke recently? If they didn't want anyone to see it they should have kept quite, and released it. All the hubbub will only attract a crowd.

The Kaz. govt. put out ads before the movie came out denouncing

Seriously, I don't think it's a custom to kiss your sister like that
in your nation. Lighten up.
