Sacha Baron Cohen is comparing the Oscars to a power hungry tyrant … pointing out how the Academy has stripped him of his right to free speech … just like his dictator alter-ego would do. Oh, the hypocrisy!

SBC released a new video statement — while in character as General Aladeen from his new movie “The Dictator” … in which he says, “I am OUTRAGED at being banned from The Oscars by the Academy Of Motion Pictures Arts and Zionists.”

He adds, “While I applaud the academy for taking away my right to free speech … I warn you that if you do not lift your sanctions and give me my tickets back by 12 PM on Sunday, you will face unimaginable consequences!”

Cohen also takes a shot at Hilary Swank … presumably because she attended a birthday party for an alleged war criminal.

In case you haven’t heard — the Academy reportedly BANNED Cohen from attending the awards because it got word that he would arrive dressed as General Aladeen … and officials felt the stunt would take away from the prestige of the event.
