Normally I don't post things that anger me or raise my ire since SomethingGlorious promotes things I love, but this is something that I just couldn't turn a blind eye to. Yesterday the news broke that Mel Gibson was arrested on suspiscion of drunk driving -- but not many details were revealed. Today, TMZ.com has an exclusive story detailing hateful, angry rhetoric spewed by Gibson, who allegedly said "fucking Jews ... the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world." The report comes from the arresting officer on the case, LA County Sheriff's Deputy James Mee, who said Gibson threatened his life, claimed to "own Malibu" and resisted arrest.
Apparently the LA County police initially wanted to cover up Gibson's inflammatory speech, saying it would only incite Jewish hatred and cause more problems. Mee was asked to tone down his report, scrub it and write up something softer.
In my opinion, Gibson needs to be held accountable and now that his hatred for Jews, which is shared by his father, who has gone on record to say the Holocaust never happened, has been exposed, I find it hard to believe that this ultra-conservative, right-wing Christian fanatic will every again make a movie in Hollywood, which is heavily populated with Jewish producers, directors, financiers, writers and more. The report claims that Gibson said his life was "fucked." I hope he's right.
