Default Mel Gibson's Anti-Semetic Tirade

Wow! Mel Gibson really has some issues. He was arrested for a DUI and went into an anti-Semitic flipout on the police who were arresting. Not a smart move there Mel.

The 4 page police report is available for viewing - just scroll down to find the link. It is hard to read but I could make out enough of it to get the big picture. He later apologized for his remarks.

http://www.tmz.com/2006/07/28/gibson...eged-cover-up/

The only thing he said that made me laugh was:

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

Yeah, dumb move by Mel. But what pisses me off is that the media in this country are making a bigger deal out of a drunken tirade instead of concentrating on the bigger issue in that he was driving drunk and could have killed someone.

Who cares what some drunk guy goes off about. I have heard the most ridiculous things come out of the most unsuspecting people while hammered.

Shame on the media for blowing up the wrong issue here.

Dumb move by Mel all around but I still think he is a great filmmaker.

Sounds like Mel might be having a mini-breakdown.

Regardless of his issues he's really made an ASS of himself.

Here is a question for those of you who consider yourselves afficianados on drunkeness...

Do you think a guy who is flipping out while drunk would say anti-semitic stuff like that if he didn't conciously believe it? I really wonder if people are capable of saying things like that if they don't truly believe it in their core. I am guessing the answer is no.


Kudos, I guess, to Mel for owning his awful behavior:
Quote:
"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."
Thats about all you can ask for an apology I supose. A wise move to admit it and not be afraid to incrimnate himself before charges IMO. But it sure as heck doesn't undo the damage he's done.

He's a freakin' actor. The far left has its loony actors like Alec Baldwin, and the far right has its loony actors like Mel Gibson. If they were normal they'd have real jobs.

I agree with Hammer67, all around. Wrong issue. He was drunk and going 87 in a 45. That's flying. And he's still made some awesome films.

I'm not sure about "in vino veritas". I'd tend to totally disregard what someone said when hammered. I think it gets used selectively; if you don't like someone you can trot out "in vino veritas", if you do like that person you say, "He didn't mean it, he was drunk."

I'm not a big fan of Mel's politics and I think his reactionary Catholicism is strange, but I don't think he is an anti-Semite. I think he's screwed up. I think he thinks about that stuff waaaaaaay too much and he said what he thought would be the most offensive thing he could think of, not because he believed it but because he is obsessed by those themes and that is what came naturally to him. He knew that some people would be offended by it, so he tried to offend them. It was his situational version of Pisschrist.

But 87 in a 45? Geez. I got caught a couple weeks ago going 64 in a 45 (stupid, I know, the limit went from 65 to 45 and I wasn't paying attention) and I was motoring. I couldn't imagine going 23mph faster there. I don't go 87 when the speed limit is 65. And I don't drink.

Clearly you haven't been around the same drunk people I have!!! I think drunk speak can boarder on all kinds of ridiculousness...I would probably equate it to dreaming. You can't control what happens to either.

I remember in college having the "I said/did what??!!" conversation with many a friend.

Very true...and, at the end of the day, who gives a shit even if he does feel that way? He's an actor...they all are strange, in my opinion.

I admittedly haven't had much expereince dealing with drunk off their ass people. Kinda sad in some ways. I asked the question in all honesty. It just seems to me such a random thing to rail about if it wasn't something you didn't actually believe. But the human brain is a wierd and complicated thing.

My own personal opinion is that being drunk often brings out the thoughts you spend your time repressing while sober.

There is alot of racism in this world, most people are guilty of it one way or the other and to some degree - myself included.

There is a difference between being blind drunk and talking about 'spaceships made out of custard'* which obviously complete nonsense, and going into a crazed anti-semetic rant.

I dont know if being an actor makes much of a difference, I dont know any well enough to get sh*tfaced with em!

NM

* Disclaimer - I have never talked about spaceships made of custard....ever.
