I’m not really sure how many times Mel Gibson will be thrown under the bus. What he said was boneheaded, vile, racist, and the Jewish component of the entertainment industry wants blood. No apology is enough, and forgiveness is out of the question when you are considered an anti-Semite.
When I worked in Hollywood, Jewish people I knew would lose their minds at any inference that the place was run by them. Unfortunately, impressions are best made by what one sees, not believes.
A lot of the people working at almost every level in Hollywood, from TV shows to movies are Jewish. WHAT’S WRONG WITH THAT?
Using that illogic, one would be considered a racist if they were to say that the National Basketball Association is run by blacks, when at any given time on a basketball court you may see ten black players running up and down the court. Blacks DO dominate the NBA. Is that a bad thing?
But here’s the hypocrisy.
Should certain people say certain things about certain other groups, might as well just kill ‘em as “forgive and forget” is out of the question. But those rules are suspended for others. If Mel Gibson went off on Christians, would there be this much uproar?
It all depends on who’s talking….
Who is this “Emily List? She’s supportin’ all these people. She’s supportin’ Sen. Dianne Feinstein. She’s supported Sen. Barbara Boxer….She supported everybody. Why won’t she support me?”

“Some junior high nigger kicked Steve’s ass while he was trying to help his brothers out; junior high or sophomore in high school. Whatever it was, Steve had the nigger down. However it was, it was Steve’s fault. He had the nigger down, he let him up. The nigger blindsided him.”

“In the days of slavery, there were those slaves who lived on the plantation and [there] were those slaves that lived in the house. You got the privilege of living in the house if you served the master… exactly the way the master intended to have you serve him. Colin Powell’s committed to come into the house of the master. When Colin Powell dares to suggest something other than what the master wants to hear, he will be turned back out to pasture.”
“Republicans bring out Colin Powell and J.C. Watts because they have no program, no policy. They have no love and no joy. They’d rather take pictures with black children than feed them.”
Donna Brazile, Al Gore’s Campaign Manager for the 2000 election

“He’s married to a white woman. He wants to be white. He wants a colorless society. He has no ethnic pride. He doesn’t want to be black.”

“Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”

The problem is that Mel Gibson hasn’t bought any kneepads.
If he spends the next few weeks on his hands and knees begging forgiveness, and basically allow himself to be humiliated, some may cut him a wee bit of slack.
But there are bigots everywhere. There are bigots in every community, amongst every ethnic group, and if you think your group is special, you’re a dope.
Mel’s got enough money he could give the middle finger to Hollywood Jews and live comfortably for the rest of his life. He didn’t have to apologize, over and over and over.
Hollywood is all about power, and if making someone grovel is what it takes to make some feel powerful, that’s sad, malicious, and all involved had better watch what comes out of their mouths in the future. Those not willing to forgive may not be easily forgiven either.
And at that point, the anit-Semitism line won’t work either.
