Mel Gibson's Anti-Semitic Tirade
[Restored from Google Cache]
If Mel Gibson doesn't become a pariah, I'll be amazed. On the one hand, there have been reports for years that the actor and creator of Passion of the Christ is anti-semitic. On the other, if the following police report is accurate, now there's evidence of it straight from his own mouth.
Once inside the car, ....the report says Gibson told the deputy, "You mother f****r. I'm going to f*** you." The report also says "Gibson almost continually [sic] threatened me saying he 'owns Malibu' and will spend all of his money to 'get even' with me."
The report says Gibson then launched into a barrage of anti-Semitic statements: "F*****g Jews... The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world." Gibson then asked the deputy, "Are you a Jew?"
I may never watch Tequilla Sunrise again.

Interestingly, this may even make Gibson a pariah to Roman Polanski....
Gee... I hope this doesn't interfere with his plan for a nonfiction production of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. [Insert eyeroll here.]

I'm shocked to find that Gibson is nuts and thinks that Jews control the world. If they did, couldn't they stop him from doing Christian snuff films?

Mel Gibson's movie The Passion of the Christ was itself a passion play, straight out of 12th century medieval Europe. Many people say that it's historically and biblically accurate, but I don't know where in any version of the Bible or in historical records that portrays little Jewish children as demons who hound Judas in two hanging himself. I wondered did that come directly from a passion play, or did Gibson come up with that segment on his own.
Anyone who's watched the movie can see the Romans are depicted as little more than unwitting pawns in the crucifixion of Christ at the hands of the Jews.
Nothing more than anti-Semitic slander at its very worst. But I don't think we can really hold Mel responsible, since he grew up in a home where he had that type of propaganda drummed into his head. I pity the man, as I pity all who harbor and disseminate such hate and prejudice.

I don't get it. The Jews were responsible for the death of Jesus? I thought dogma says he was supposed to die.

The man goes around with a beard and haircut that mimic Saddam Hussein, and it's news to you that the dude is a whackjob?
