Talented actors are often tormented by inner demons. Substance abuse and all manner of dysfunction are hand-in-glove with the trade.

Stop and think about just how many poor behaviors and cockamamie beliefs are not just tolerated but accepted and even touted in actors and actresses today.

Then, stop and think about the almost mind control being exerted here, due to Mel Gibson saying and thinking things deemed unacceptable.

Either he’s a good actor worth seeing or he’s not. I’m personally sick of being subjected to some amateur indoctrination by every singer and actor. They don’t know squat.

Mel Gibson, to my knowledge, does not attempt to convert people to using sexist taunts or abusive behavior. Leftists in the same position of influence do.

Lay off the guy. How well would you fare if your every move was under a microscope? Ever uttered anything that would set the media to tut-tutting and condemning? How many similar rants have been given a pass for people who are politically correct? I can think of several.

Gibson may be able to make movies under his Icon production banner, but who would consider working with Gibson worth the risk to his or her reputation?

Since Hollyweird alleges itself to be the gold standard of free speech and artistic expression, why should anyone worry about working for Mr. Gibson?

Of course the reality is 90% of them are dumb, intolerant, vindictive and full of hate. See the above "journalist" suggesting Mel be blacklisted.

Mel can self-finance his films but he still needs to find a distributor for them. Of course, he could always go the direct-to-DVD route, like Steven Seagal has been doing lately.

And he’s a man who humiliated and threw away his loyal wife for a gold digging tart.

Which puts him below the gold digging tart in my book

Gibson certainly has his problems and I sure wish he’d recognize them and work them out.

As for his comments, big deal. They were said in the heat of anger and in what he believed was a private setting. Heck, I’m not a racist, don’t care if folks think I am, and I no longer drink. However, if some of my privately spoken words regarding Obama, his tribe and the 90+% of the Black drooler’s that voted for him were made public, the New Black MooslimEs would be camped outside of my house.

I’m far more concerned about Gibson’s alcohol, and perhaps substance abuse, as well as his obvious anger management issues, than what might come out of his mouth during a fit of anger and/or a drunken stupor. His personal success, money, fame and fortune has not made him happy, we are seeing the results of that unhappiness. IMHO

I love what he has done with his talent, I will continue to love his work, past or in the future... if he has one.

I wish him well.

What's the big deal about the PASSION ? This isn't the first time the life of Christ crucifixion was depicted on film. Count them --- THE KING OF KINGS, THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD, JESUS OF NAZARETH, etc.

ALL of the above films recount the Passion, the teachings of Christ, etc. Why this obsessive focus on Gibson's film ? What makes it DIFFERENT ?

It seems to be an unwritten rule in hollywierd that religious films were tolerated in the 50s 60s and maybe early 70s but after that no more.

I guess it's the same reason why in any movie or TV show, I've noticed that it's OK to be a Christian if you're depicting a historical time. But, if you're depicting a modern person who's a Christian they always have to be portrayed as unbalanced in some way. Either they're fanatic and hateful, they're pedophiles (especially if it's a Catholic priest) or they're "intolerant". A good example of this might be the movie Cape Fear. Remember the old Gregory Peck version the guy was just a psycho. In the Robert DeNero version they made sure to point out that the killer was also an evangelical Christian. Why the change?

Related to this, compare how muslims are portrayed. Am I imagining it or is it true, even if a muslim is portrayed as a terrorist, they're always noble in some way. They're almost never the two dimensional characters that Christians are portrayed as and they usually have some small redeeming quality.

Maybe I'm just being over sensitive, and there are exceptions, but that's the trend I see.

You gave one heck of a list. Now let’s play Sesame Street and add Mel Gibson’s name to the list.

Now sing :

“One of these is not like the others,
One of these does not belong,
Can you tell me what’s not like the others,
Before I finish my song....”

I don’t know, Sandra Bernhardt threatened Sarah Palin would be gang-raped by her ‘big black brothers’ if she came to New York and she’s still working.

She didn’t use the n-word and she’s a liberal, so I guess if she stereotypes blacks as gang rapists it’s a pass.

It does appear this tape was of a “private” in home conversation between husband and wife...call it whatever one will...what we say to one another in the privacy of our homes should stay there and not be open to public scrutiny.

However it appears also the wife was trying to obtain evidence of abuse from her husband. Taped the conversation and directly or indirectly slathering it across the media where it has no business being.

I don't care what Gibson says in his home and frankly what he or others might say in public...those who stand in the pulpit preaching tolerance are the least intolerant of all!

Every individual has the right and or privilege to say and believe what they want in our society now. It is those who can't handle “life” and the varied opinions of others who cry and whine the loudest.....the media is the most guilty of this....we would be better off ignoring them.

Unfortunately the mindless masses cannot think or deal with life anymore without a host of ridiculous and frankly stupid laws in an attempt to babysit them...they do not and cannot think for themselves, nor arrive at any conclusions, unless someone is telling them how they should so.

We have arrived at madness in our nation and this next generation will surely take us the rest of the way down. They have zip understanding of life and most are living in a fantasy world that does not exist....rather one which plays entirely on their emotions and comfort of those emotions. They are still living in the childhood days of..”Play nice with the other children in the sandbox” never learning how to stand up for themselves nor the skills to do so in such a way as to survive. They are still in the blame gain and I don't see that change ahead.

Thanks for “tolerating “ my rant. One does get fed up with the nonsense...and it is just that!

At the link:

A spokesperson explained the decision: "Jennifer Lopez would never knowingly support any state, country, institution or regime that was associated with any form of human rights abuse. "After a full review of the relevant circumstances in Cyprus, it was the decision of management to withdraw from the appearance. This was a team decision that reflects our sensitivity to the political realities of the region."

. . . . hence the question:

Who is Ari Emmanuel and why should anyone give hime/her/it a second thought?

Gibson used his own money to make Passion and that movie returned billions IIRC.

He doesn’t need any one to to fund his movies or his career.

So, the guy’s got a temper. He needs to work harder at controlling it.

Anger isn’t a crime and we shouldn’t fall into the Liberal trap of making it one.

He could make good on these publicized, idiotic outbursts without playing the PC hand. There are plenty of meaningful issues out there.

Gibson made another film after THE PASSION entitled APOCALYPTO.

Set in Yucatan, Mexico, during the declining period of the Mayan civilization, Apocalypto depicts the journey of a Mesoamerican tribesman who must escape human sacrifice and rescue his family after the capture and destruction of his village.

The film features a cast of Indigenous Mexicans and some Native Americans, and its Yucatec Maya dialogue is accompanied by subtitles.

The Budget was $40 Million. The film made $120 Million.

True.. Jesus "coming back" walking thru walls(Acts) and appearing in other strange ways(Acts) could make a killer sci-fi flick... even better than the first movie.. What Jesus did AFTER he was crucified was just as bodacious as what he did before his "death"..

Mel screwed up big time. He will weather it but it will take time. What is interesting is how selective the outrage is. I find far more damning the actors who defend tyrannical socialist dictators and in a better world their careers would be over. Instead a person says dumb angry things in fit of rage and they are an indication of character or lack their of? No I don’t buy it. The cold calculating hate of the left is far more deserving of ostracization but it will never get it’s due. I don’t defend Mel’s stupid angry statements but to say such statements are the sum of the man is wrong when evil walks in plain sight and is broadcast to millions as if normal and good.

Reminds me of a Doonesbury back when it was sometimes funny. He had his super rich rockstar character take up stamp collecting so the rockstar calls up his stamp dealer and says send over every stamp put out by a certain country whose name I cannot recall and then hangs up. Rockstar then turns to his wife and says well that was fun now what country should I collect next.

I have no doubt the devil has worked overtime leading Mel to temptations after he made that wonderful film i.e his drinking, divorce, etc. However, perhaps now the Lord is leading him back through scorn. Scorn is a public awareness that you are not the swell person that everyone thought you were. It is also when everyone knows that you're weak, imperfect, and sinful. Most of us don't really want such a heavy dose of self-knowledge, but self-knowledge is the key to attaining holiness in this life. While at the present time Mel may experience some pretty awful times, we should pray that he will grow closer to God in his newfound humility and move light-years forward.

I hope he discovers that his gifts and talents-his judgment, and his popularity can be taken away by God just as easily as they were given to him, and that now he may become humbled before God and man.

To be blunt, it wasn’t just that he used the N-word, but used it in such an derogatory fashion that it’s really hard to explain or excuse it away. It doesn’t really get much worse than suggesting that your wife is going to raped by “N-words” based on the way she dressed.

William Morris principal Ari Emanuel (yes Rahm's bro) reportedly declared that they will not represent anyone who uses the "N" word. News is slow to come regarding the fates of other WMA acts including; Eminem, Ice Cube, 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes and SnoopDog among others.

Incidentally, Ari Emanuel was once quoted as saying about blacks (when refusing a script offered to Wesley Snipes) "That is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. Everyone knows that blacks don’t swim!"

I was at an intersection in front a a “gear and trim” shop, a sailor was walking towards it in a normal stride, as soon as he passed the door frame, he completely changed his posture, swaying back and forth, and pulled his pants down lower. That is not the first time I have noticed this chameleon like move by black men, and it won’t be the last. Working construction, a black man walked up to me and asked for a cigarette....I did not smoke, he went to a black co worker and said, say bruh, gots a coo man? Just one step away from me, he was a different person.

“Someone else thinks and hears with insight. This was a complete setup, you can tell by her overly calm demeanor.”

Yes, she sounds like Mother Teresa. She baited him and then started the recording. I guarantee it. She already knew how she would respond to him. Yes, the unashamed home wrecker, played it well on the recording ... . Someone screwing around with a married man has NO CHARACTER in my book. Mel was STUPID.

“She set him up, spun him into a frenzy, then turned on the recording. Is this legal?”

Without CONSENT, I doubt that it could be admitted in court. I doubt Mel KNEW she was recording him. He sounds like he's two sheets to the wind. His speech is slurred.

“I thought people who did this sort of thing were prosecuted? On a final note, it was not that out of line, even the usage of the N word, if it came out of Pee Doody’s mouth, would be brushed away.”

Well, it depends on WHO it is. If the person is CATHOLIC which btw I am not) or conservative (which I am), then you are FAIR GAME.

OTOH, if you are s LIBERAL, it is understood that you have NO BOUNDARIES. That's the only difference I can determine.
