Behind the Scenes: James Broadwater

I wouldn't compare myself with Stalin?

In the Guide to Politics Episode, Borat interviews Republican James Broadwater. He then goes out on the campaign trail with him. Most controversially Mr Broadwater replies that "(I) would have to say, they go to hell" when asked if Jews went to hell or heaven.

The Unofficial Borat website invited Mr Broadwater to an interview, so far he has not replied. He has however made the following statement on his website:

"I have been made aware that an interview that was done with me was played on HBO last night, and that it has been used to make Christians look bad and to make me look like a person who hates Jews. I don't watch HBO, but I definitely got duped by them back before the March Primary. I was lied to and told that a reporter from Kazakhstan wanted to interview people running for office in America, and that these interviews would be played back in his country and maybe in other countries as well, because the people there were interested in the American political system and wished to shape their system after ours. I, as well as others, were excited about being able to share with people in other countries not only about the American political system, but also about Jesus Christ, the Lord of everything and the Savior of the World. What has happened instead is that my interview has been used to make Christians look bad and to make me look like a person who hates Jews. But then, what else can you expect from people who are so anti-Christian and anti-God?

At least one good thing has come out of all this: In the future, I will check out reporters with whom I am not familiar (even if I don't really have the time to do so) before I give them an interview.

I have received several e-mails today - a couple supportive, and five or six bashing me, using profanity, obscenity, and a threatening tone. (The threatening, obscene, and profane ones have been forwarded to the Federal Communications Commission, and official complaints have been lodged.) I believe that people can disagree without being mean-spirited and hateful, much less insulting and threatening.

Several people have expressed concern over my statement that Jews will go to Hell. That was direct response to a direct set of questions about who God will let into Heaven. John 3:16-18 clearly states, as do many other Bible passages, that everyone who accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior will spend eternity in Heaven, while everyone who rejects Him will spend eternity in Hell, because he has rejected the Only Begotten Son of God. Maybe I should have refused to answer such a pointed question that was designed to cause conflict, but to say that everyone goes to Heaven would be lying, and it would be heartless, giving people a false hope. Jesus is the Jewish Messiah, and millions of Jews over the past 2,000 years have accepted Him as such. It is my prayer that many more will do the same. And, by the way, I seek to bless the Jews (please see Genesis 12:3), and for some time I have had a logo on my website which says, "I am a proud friend of Israel." And I always will be.

As far as the entertainer on HBO goes, I think he could still make money without hurting people or attempting to damage good causes. I hope he will re-think the direction of his life.

The Bible says, "Silence the mocker and strife will cease," and this stunt pulled by HBO is just one more reason why I believe that the liberal, anti-God media needs to be brought under the strict control of the FCC, and that as soon as possible."

The Unofficial Borat Website stays clear of commenting on any issue and simply presents what happens in Borat shows and some reaction from the press and his "victims". However, the American Republican Party is best known recently for the presidents Ronald Regan, George Bush (1990s) and George Bush (current). James Broadwater gives his views on certain policies on the following pages Gun ownership, Parental rights, Homosexuality, Pornography and The Media.

Visitors to the site are free to make up their own minds on these views.
