Representative Jason Spencer, 43, literally dropped his pants on camera and expressed anti-gay, anti-Muslim and anti-Asian sentiments on Sasha Baron Cohen’s show.
Spencer, 43, a married father-of-two claims he was tricked into appearing on Sacha Baron Cohen’s Showtime program, believing he was being taught self-defense to fight off terrorists.
Instead, the physician’s assistant from the town of Woodbine was seen on the show shouting unleashing the worst form of racism and bigotry as he screamed the n-word multiple times, called Muslims ‘sand n*****s’ and ‘rapists.’
He then imitates a Chinese tourist by speaking gibberish, and most confounding, tries to ward off a potential terrorist by ripping down his pants and threatening them with his bare buttocks.
After several public figures called for his resignation earlier this week, including the House Speaker and the state governor, both Republicans, Spencer has reportedly taken the decision to step down from his position at the end of the month – according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
In this episode, Cohen was playing the character of Captain Erran Morad, an anti-terrorism expert.
He introduces himself by stating: ‘I was in the Mossad, I mean not in the Mossad for 13 years. I am here to teach you krav maga.’
Spencer then introduces himself, at which point the show reveals that last August the Republican lawmaker had threatened a former member of the Georgia House of Representatives that she would be killed and thrown in a swamp if she supported the removal of Confederate statues.
LaDawn Jones, a black attorney who is no longer a member of the Georgia House, expressed her shock when Spencer responded to her objections over a Jefferson Davis statue by writing: ‘Continue your quixotic journey into South Georgia and it will not be pleasant. The truth. Not a warning. Those folks won’t put up with it like they do in Atlanta. It best you move on.’
He goes on further: ‘I can guarantee you won’t be met with torches but something a lot more definitive. People of South Georgia are people of action, not drama.
Things then went even further in the next post, with Spencer writing of people like Jones who are against these statues: ‘They will go missing in the Okefenokee [swamp]. Too many necks they are red around here. Don’t say I didn’t warn you about ’em.’
Spencer was also in the news for introducing a bill that would make it illegal for people to conceal their faces in public.
He tells Cohen that he does not call it a ‘burka ban’ and rather an ‘anti-masking statute’ because ‘to win in the legal system you cannot be against the First Amendment.’
He then added: ‘See this is how the Muslims in the country are using the First Amendment for them. You got to fight fire with fire.’
LaDawn Blackett Jones and Jason Spencer got into a furious twitter war over confederate images and symbols being openly displayed in the state of Georgia

Spencer is then off the show, but returns in the end of the episode in a special message he filmed for terrorists.
‘All you sand n****** over the Middle East, we are tired of you coming to America and we are tired of you threatening us. We will cut off your dick,’ states Spencer, who then simulates cutting off a dummy’s penis with the knife he is waving around while producing a piece of cured meat in his hand.
‘You understand, we will cut off your dick and we will shove it in your mouth, chew it off, put it in your mouth.’
While delivering that line, Spencer bits off the top of the meat and then shoves the rest into the dummy’s mouth.
‘How are you going to rape little children and women without a dick?’
While he may not be stepping down, Spencer is not long for his seat, having lost in the recent primary election.
Dick Cheney, Trent Lott, David Petraeus, Howard Dean, Beernie Sanders, Rob Moore, Alberto Gonzales and Sarah Palin are among the other big names who have been duped by Cohen for the new series. There are unconfirmed reports that President Trump will be the focus of his new show, which airs new episodes on Sunday night.
Jason Spencers’s statement on his perfomance at the Sacha Baron Cohen show
‘The makers of this film fraudulently induced me in participating in bogus self-defense and anti-terrorism training after they learned of the legislation I introduced in November 2016 that provoked death threats against me and my family. They took advantage of my fears that I would be attacked by someone inspired by the vile rhetoric used against me.
‘I was told the video was intended to be an educational aid to train elected officials who may be targeted by terrorists. Threats to public officials are real as we have seen with the assassination attempt upon Congressman Steve Scalise’s life, which occurred one month prior to my contact with the film’s makers
‘They exploited my state of mind for profit and notoriety. This media company’s deceptive and fraudulent behavior is exactly why President Donald Trump was elected.
‘Furthermore, there are sensitive parts of this training that took place under a kidnapping scenario where I was repeatedly asked to shout provocative language which I requested be removed, but I was not afforded that opportunity to have final approval over footage used that was initially extended to me by the film makers.
‘It is clear the makers of this film intended to deceive me in an attempt to undermine the American conservative political movement; therefore, I have sought legal counsel to challenge this illegal and unethical behavior and plan on taking action if and when any of this fraudulently obtained footage of me is used by these Hollywood liberals to line their own pockets.’
