Sigh: Mel Gibson In Vicious Anti-Semitic Tirade After DUI Bust

We defended him. We appear to have been chumped.

TMZ has learned that Deputy Mee audiotaped the entire exchange between himself and Gibson, from the time of the traffic stop to the time Gibson was put in the patrol car, and that the tape fully corroborates the written report.


Once inside the car, a source directly connected with the case says Gibson began banging himself against the seat. 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?"

At least he was polite enough to ask if the guy was a Jew.

Some small amount of humor can yet be found in this distasteful episode:

A law enforcement source says Gibson then noticed another female sergeant and yelled, "What do you think you're looking at, sugar tits?"

He always seemed like a cool guy, and apparently he's Jerky Boyz fan.

But it appears the charges of anti-semitism levelled against him were quite accurate. This provides quite a bit of context for his opposition to the Iraq War, as we all know Jews manipulated us into that.

It doesn't, however, denigrate the power of The Passion of the Christ, which many people love. (I was bored and found it repetitve and overly violent myself; not that I object to violence per se, but I thought the repetitiveness of the flailing, for example, tended to reach a point of diminishing returns, and then take one out of the experience by reminding one one was watching a movie.)

A work, I think, should be evaluated on its own terms, without too much of the filmmaker's beliefs brought into the evaluation.

But yeah: Gibson does, in fact, seem to have a major league issue with Jews.

And he doesn't appear to be a big fan of women in positions of authority, either, unless one construes the "sugar tits" line as an attempt at a compliment.

Note: I always thought the South Park guys were being uncharicteristally PC/CW (conventional wisdom) oriented when they went after Gibson for being a maniac Jew-hater. I was suprised they so uncritically embraced the left's caricature of Gibson as nutty anti-semitic conspiracy theorist.

It seems the South Park guys were tuned in to the scuttlebutt around Hollywood and were actually parodizing Gibson in a way they knew, for unpublicized reasons, was quite fair and accurate, and yet which went unreported by the celebrity press.

Addendum: I guess it sounds funny to say the celebrity press had dirt on Gibson that "went unreported," when they went after him hammer and tongs.

What I meant was though they went after his dad's not-really-relevant expressions of anti-semitism, there were not, as far as I saw, an reports of such statements comng from Gibson himself. I assume that Hollywood reporters must have known he'd made such statements -- this stuff doesn't come out of the blue, nor go unnoticed -- but that sources refused to say anything on record about it because Gibson has so much power in Hollywood.

Amost as much power in Hollywood, as a matter of fact, as the average Jew you see walking by you on the street.

Another Addendum: While it seemd the press was being unfair to Gibson by going after his dad's quotes, it now looks like they should be defended.

It could be the case they knew these things about Gibson personally, but no sources would even allow the information to be used on deep background -- because they figured Gibson only said these things to a select group of people he trusted, and even being quoted on background would, inevitably, throw the suspicion on themselves.

So, they knew something they couldn't prove directly. They therefore did what they could to prove it, by indirect evidence and, yeah, by insinuation.

Still, it explains why the press was so gung-ho to pin this particular charge on Gibson.

And... I hear that Juan Cole just went on to Amazon and ordered all of Gibson's old movies, from Gallipoli to Bird on a Wire to, yes, even Conspiracy Theory. "I have a newfound respect for this daring artist," he was quoted as saying on his Amazon order form.

This very funny thread of Jewish Conspiracy Theories is being re-linked in honor of Mel.

PS: I'm not back, I still quit, this still isn't fun anymore, so the guest bloggers can and should (if they'd be so kind) continue posting.

I'm just posting every once in a while, which is what people do when they quit.
