Mel Gibson Started All Wars

That’s right folks, the shocking truth is finally out. Mel Gibson not only started all wars, but he also staged the whole Holocaust and hung Christ on the cross himself. He’s been a busy man between being a racist fuck and banging blonde chicks who aren’t his wife. I have a feeling R.Stevens and J.Ro feel the same way. Oh, and so does the rest of America.

On Saturday, Gibson released the following statement:

“After drinking alcohol on Thursday night, I did a number of things that were very wrong and for which I am ashamed. I drove a car when I should not have, and was stopped by the LA County Sheriffs. The arresting officer was just doing his job and I feel fortunate that I was apprehended before I caused injury to any other person. I acted like a person completely out of control when I was arrested, and said things that I do not believe to be true and which are despicable. I am deeply ashamed of everything I said. Also, I take this opportunity to apologize to the deputies involved for my belligerent behavior. They have always been there for me in my community and indeed probably saved me from myself. I disgraced myself and my family with my behavior and for that I am truly sorry. I have battled with the disease of alcoholism for all of my adult life and profoundly regret my horrific relapse. I apologize for any behavior unbecoming of me in my inebriated state and have already taken necessary steps to ensure my return to health.”

Yeah, let’s crucify him for fucking up one time. I wonder if you can hear me from all the way up on that high horse.

wow, are we allowed to say fuck?

Of course Gibson is going to say he’s sorry- what else is can he do, pretend what he did was all right? An apology is a step in the right direction, but it doesn’t automatically absolve him from being judged for a monumentally stupid series of actions. This isn’t an isolated incident, either; Gibson has made anti-Semitic remarks in the past, not to mention his dad has publicly denied the Holocaust.
There’s a difference between being on a high horse and judging where judgement is due.

P.J – I titled one of my older posts “Eat it, you fuck”.

So the answer is, no you’re not allowed to say fuck.

A long retelling of the Aristocrats would be perfectly okay, though.

Oh well.

My subtle attempt at changing the subject apperently failed anyway…

I agree that his behavior was ridiculously obscene and offensive; I just find the whole “censure bandwagon” scene to be ridiculous. He messed up, he apologized; everybody makes mistakes. He may very well be a dick in real life; I don’t know, I’ve never met him. I guess all I meant was I don’t see the point behind posts that just say “This guy sucks and everyone agrees with me!” Didn’t mean to be confrontational; I was at work, and works make me grumpy.

Oh, and sorry about the language; I didn’t mean it maliciously. It just seemed like the most appropriate verb.

I’ll bring the cross

Cross? You got the cross?

Dang. I only got the top hat.
