Just When I Feel Okay Watching Mel Gibson Movies Again, He Goes On Another Anti-Jew Rant

Last weekend The Patriot came on TV and I resisted the urge to change the channel. “So much time has passed,” I thought to myself, “I don’t even remember what Mel Gibson said about hating Jews, so I can totally end my boycott of him and watch this movie.”

Well dammit to hell Mel Gibson. Now you just made me feel guilty ALL over again for watching your movie! Why must you hate my people so much and why must you be so open with your hatred? Did someone make you eat gefilte fish once? Is that what this whole thing is about? Or are you just a really horrible person who thinks it’s okay to call Jews “oven dodgers?”

Did you just choke on your matzah reading that? I did too. OVEN DODGERS?! What is wrong with the man.

According to screenwriter Joe Eszterhas, Mel Gibson’s even more anti-Semitic than we originally believed. (This is on top of being a horrible abusive husband and father as well. Just remember that.) CNN reports the following about the current he-man-Jew-hating situation:

Joe Eszterhas, who wrote a screenplay about the Jewish hero Judah Maccabee for Gibson, recounts numerous alleged incidents in detail in a nine-page letter to Gibson published by the website thewrap.com…In discussing Jewish people, Gibson regularly used the terms “Hebes,” “oven-dodgers,” and “Jew-boys,” Eszterhas alleges. “You said most ‘gatekeepers’ of American companies were ‘Hebes’ who ‘controlled their bosses.’”

If this was anyone else, I might give him the benefit of the doubt and say that this could be completely made-up. But it’s not anyone else. It’s Mel Gibson. A man who’s known around town for not really liking Jews. So despite the fact he’s denying the allegations, I believe every word.

So what does this mean for all of us? We’re back to boycotting Mel Gibson. That means not watching any of his movies when they’re on TV, including the always tempting What Women Want.

      I find it interesting that you automatically believe Eszterhas’ claims at face value, Jenni, maybe you should consider the rather suspect timing of Eszterhas’ supposedly private and confidential letter to Mel Gibson somehow making it’s way to the press a whole day after Warner Bros passed on his apparently shoddy first draft of the Maccabees film script!

      Whilst it’s undeniable that Gibson made some ill-advised comments whilst highly intoxicated in 2006 (and who of us hasn’t, I make ill-advised comments when I’m stone-cold sober, but enough of my personal proclivities), and he most certainly has paid a price for those comments, if Gibson really held those views, wouldn’t it have got around Hollywood long before those accusations were first leveled against him in 2004 – and that was mainly from the Jewish Left who didn’t like the fact he made ‘The Passion…’ – and you never heard even a whiff of these supposed opinions of Gibson’s even in his wild and drunken days of the 1980′s, indeed, would the likes of Jodie Foster, Julia Roberts, or Richard Donner have worked with him, never mind publicly defended him, if they knew he held such views?

      All I’m saying is you should know the full facts before you stick the knife in, but thanks for your time in reading this, warmest regards…

        Leave it to Jenni Maire to assume the worst about anyone. You could tell her that Mel Gibson had a cure for cancer and was willing to give it away for free and she’d still find fault with it.

        I’m glad that people are smart enough to NOT buy a word that this idiot blogger has to say
