The Passion of the ....Fanatic

Lost in the continuing worries over Israel, the Mets smackdown on the Braves, fears over a bad Omar Minaya trade before the deadline and the opening of New York Jets training camp this weekend was the arrest of Jew hater Mel Gibson this week near Malibu, California.

The Deranged One was allegedly drunk and spouting off virulent anti-Semitic comments to the police officers, even asking one of them if he was Jewish and then stating that the Jews are the cause of all the world's wars (I'm paraphrasing here).

The mask of normalcy that Mr. Gibson wore for so many years and so many of my favorite movies (Mad Max, The Road Warrior, Lethal Weapon) has slipped completely off, revealing another Jew hating monster underneath. Does Mr. Gibson don the white sheets of the Ku Klux Klan in the privacy of his home? Does he bookmark his favorite sections of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion? Is he no more than just a more successful version of his insane father, a known anti-Semitic and Holocaust denier?

And how long does Gibson continue to get a free pass for his actions simply because he is famous? Actually don't answer this one. The answer is forever. He was pretty much a full-fledged raving lunatic when The Passion was released (see a brilliant parody of his insanity on the South Park episode spoofing The Passion), yet for some reason, his version of the death of Jesus Christ has become the gospel (pun intended).

This is the joke of our society, which puts a premium on the words of morons like Gibson and Tom Cruise despite their own babbling insanity - allowing them to spout off about whatever they please (in Gibson's case, maniacal ramblings about the Jews) without any fear of repercussions. Then throw in the Jason Giambi-type apology - I'm sorry for what I said but I'm not saying what I said - and it really is head scratching how he is allowed to get away with this stuff.

To say that my family won't be spending any money to see this lunatics movies anymore is an understatement. As I mentioned in a comment on Joe's site earlier today - I hope Mel Gibson gets a one way ticket to burning in Hell.

And I'm pretty sure that he will.


  • Let's hope all Jews boycott his movies and refuse to buy any DVD's or videos of his.

  • His excuse is that he was drunk, but he wouldn't have said it if he wasn't feeling it.

    We should deffinately all boycott him.

    And lastly, at the end of the day, it doesn't really matter what he says. We'll still survive and go on like we always have, B'ezrat Hashem.

  • Being drunk merely loosesn your tongue. It doesn't cause you to say things that aren't true. Gibson's blaming his tirade on alchohol is patently moronic.
