Wing Nut Watch
Mel Gibson may be a pretty good actor and director, but it is more and more evident that he’s also a nutjob. Gibson’s hit the news a few days ago after being arrested for drunk driving in Malibu, California. But let’s face it, given their entitlement mentalities, things like drunk driving, drug use, or creating a public nuisance are nothing rare among Hollywood celebrities.
What has gotten Mel into real hot water are the expletive-laced outbursts he allegedly had while being arrested and detained. According to a web site that obtained what it says are pages from the original police report, the rants included threatening, misogynistic, and anti-Semitic remarks.
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?”
The deputy became alarmed as Gibson’s tirade escalated, and called ahead for a sergeant to meet them when they arrived at the station. When they arrived, a sergeant began videotaping Gibson, who noticed the camera and then said, “What the f*** do you think you’re doing?”
A law enforcement source says Gibson then noticed another female sergeant and yelled, “What do you think you’re looking at, sugar tits?”
This isn’t the first time Gibson has been accused of anti-Semitism. Most of the controversy surrounding his film, The Passion of the Christ, centered around accusations that Gibson used the film to blame Jews for the crucifixion of Jesus. Even among Catholics, which Gibson claims to be, there is controversy about the brand of Catholicism to which he adheres. Many years ago, I read in an entertainment magazine that he had left the Roman Catholic church because he thought it was too liberal.
So with this latest news, Gibson seems to illustrate that it isn’t just cranky Muslims, white supremacists, and far-left idealogues who think the Jews are to blame for everything wrong in the world. Perhaps we should put all these various groups on a big island together and let them sort it out amongst themselves.
