Hat Tip

Interesting perspective on Mel Gibson's drunk-driving arrest the other day:

"You remember Mel Gibson, the Christianist poster boy who made the two-hour snuff film that was so popular a few years back, prior to which he was most famous for baring his hard Catholic ass in every film he made up to that point?

This devout, conservative Christian, when stopped for driving drunk with an open bottle of tequila on the front seat of his car, went on a tirade of f-bombs and Anti-Semitic slurs, threatened the life of the cop who had stopped him, resisted arrest and tried to run away on foot from the scene, and yelled 'Sweet tits' to a female officer. Classy, really classy. Then, the sheriff ordered the officer to take all of that out of his report -- and he still has a job."

There's a lot to dislike about Gibson. He is given to furious tirades against homosexuals of the sort that make one wonder if he has some kind of subliminal or "unaddressed" problem. His vulgar and nasty movies, which also feature this prejudice, are additionally replete with the cheapest caricatures of the English. Braveheart and The Patriot are two of the most laughable historical films ever made. (Englishmen don't form picket lines outside movie theaters when "stereotyped," but still.) He has told interviewers that his wife, the mother of his children, is going to hell because she subscribes to the wrong Christian sect (a view that he justifies as "a pronouncement from the chair"). And it has been obvious for some time to the most meager intelligence that he is sick to his empty core with Jew-hatred.
