Skip to comments.Mel Gibson post-award press conference-"Kinship" with Michael Moore
Posted on 01/10/2005 10:33:48 AM PST by bushfamfan
Does anyone have the quotes that Mel Gibson apparently made after receiving his People's Choice Award in saying he felt a "kinship" with Michael Moore and attacking the war in Iraq?
I totally agree. I'm hoping he was mis-quoted (afterall, the MSM is so good at doing that) But, if the quotes are accurate, he's on my boycott Hollyweird list !!
Yup...gossip central. I won't comment on why I poked my nose in, then. :)
Hmmm. . .kinda hypocritical for Mel to be ripping on a war considering the types of movies he usually makes.
Bruce Willis played the Diehard character.
Heck, I just stumbled in to read the posts and people were freaking out.
Well, I found this :
Seems Mel is a conservative, but not crazy about the Iraq war. That I can respect though. What I can't resepet is "liking" a piece of blatant propagandistic BS such as F9/11. There is nothing that makes sense about that.
Post 3. It's apparently been all over the radio. Hopefully he'll make Google so we can expand on this. He's in a league with Michael Moore. He embraces someone who is a radical, hate-infested, anti-American nutcase. He praises his film and in the process clearly is indicting the President for going to war for oil and unsavory reasons.
he played his religion all the way to the BANK
He is a fan of Fahrenheit 9/11. He feels a 'kinship' with Michael Moore. That's radical and Gibson has some issues he needs to resolve with himself.
Lethal Weapon, thanks.
key word = APPARENTLY.
You got a password for that site FRiend?
Could you ping me when you get an answer? I'm interested to know what he said, not what people think he said or what the MSM interpreted him to say.
That said, I was one of few Christians who didn't really like The Passion. It was all right, but not amazing....
Consider that it is said his father actually moved the family to Australia to avoid his sons being drafted and sent to Vietnam. Mel denies it. Why doesn't he just admit it?
That may be true (I'm still waiting for more tangible prrof than "I heard" it) but he still is a cultural conservative. Isn't it funny how some people can keep you guessing ...
I haven't heard the comments, but it seems to me that some people on this board are expecting too much out of Mel Gibson. He is a filmmaker who made the best film of the year, IMO, but he is not a politician. He is a celebrity, and since we don't take liberal ones seriously why do we take seriously those who take a conservative point of view. Either way, it is their one opinion only.
I'll take the ranting and raving of Limbaugh, Hannity, Coulter and Malkin over Michael Moore's propaganda any day !!
Freaking out is right. There is no verification here, it's just one guy's question and now there's all this hullabaloo. Knee-jerk, anyone?
