Into the Simulacrum …

I have probably explained my dislike for Baudrillard somewhere on this blog (the Gulf War did take place), but sometimes I doubt when I hear that the State Department’s annual human rights report:

cited Borat’s loss of his Kazakh webpage http://www.borat.kz in late 2005 alongside court cases and limits on free speech faced by the few domestic media critical of Kazakhstan’s long-serving President Nursultan Nazarbayev.
“The government deemed as offensive the content of a satirical site controlled by British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen and revoked the .kz domain,” the report said.

Ok.
