Rob Schneider Denounces Mel Gibson
WPGB Pittsburgh ^ | August 4, 2006 | Staff

Posted on 08/05/2006 5:05:29 AM PDT by mcg2000

In a full page ad in Thursday's Variety, an entertainment industry trade paper, the actor says, "I, Rob Schneider, a 1/2 Jew, pledge from this day forward to never work with Mel Gibson, actor-director-producer and anti-Semite."

Comedic actor Rob Schneider denounced fellow actor Mel Gibson in a letter, saying that he would never work with the Academy Award winner.

"I, Rob Schneider, a 1/2 Jew, pledge from this day forward to never work with Mel Gibson, actor-director-producer and anti-Semite," said the letter, which bore Schneider's signature.

The declaration was published as a full page ad in Thursday's Variety, an entertainment industry trade paper, E! Online reported Friday.

The untold joke of the letter is that Schneider and Gibson have never worked together before, with Schneider making comedies like 'Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo' and Gibson making epics like 'Braveheart,' and 'The Passion of the Christ.'

Still, Schneider stopped any chance of collaboration with Gibson who reputedly railed against Jews during a drunken driving arrest July 28 in California.

Oddly enough:


President George W. Bush addresses the audience in the East Room as actor Rob Schneider, decked out in a patriotic cowboy hat, takes a photograph Nov. 2. White House photo by Eric Draper.

About par for Schneider - a lame attempt at being funny that falls just a little bit short of target.

What is a 1/2 Jew? Are these the Reformed Jews, also known as 'Jewish Light'?

As much as I don't like Mel's tirade (and I saw no anti-semitism in 'The Passion of Christ'), I just laughed when I saw Rob Schneider's denouncement of him.

He claims he is 'half Jewish'. How are you 'half Jewish'? You are either of the faith, or not of the faith. I don't see Jews as a race, but rather a religion. You can be black, oriental, Native American and be a Jew. If you don't practice the faith, you are not a Jew.

You cannot be 'half Catholic, half Christian, half Buddhist, or half Muslim. I don't care what your parents are, how do you practice half a religion?

...as funny as I think Rob is and as much as I have enjoyed his movies, this is just silliness. I'm sure Mel Gibson is just crushed knowing he will not have Rob Schneider to work with in his next project.

Maybe it is a joke I'm not getting?

is Schneider the guy that used to do that on SNL? I remember thinking, on seeing that for the first time, that SNL had sunken to a new, empty low. Even if the routine caught on for a while, it wasn't as funny as much as it was weird and totally emptyheaded and meaningless.

Every time since Bush became President. I wonder how James Brolin puts up with her? I have never heard him make ridiculous commments. Or it could be that I just don't pay attention.

"I, Steve Malone, a 3/4 Mick er, er, sorry, Irish and 1/4 Kraut er,er, sorry, German and mackerel snapper er, er, sorry, Catholic pledge from this day forward to never work with Mel Gibson, actor-director-producer and anti-Semite, whether or not he is any of these things."

Of course I never worked with him in the past and doubt this is much of a threat since he never heard of me and isn't likely to seek me out for anything. I guess that puts me in roughly the same category as Rob Schneider.

If Gibson makes any more epic movies, though, I pledge to see them if I am able because his are among the best ever made.

Fine. Just what Hollywood Babylon needs, anathema proclamations, blacklisting, bring on the stockades and the hoods and robes too. Every little trapping of fascism helps identify the species.

Yes. Sort of.

The ad continues on that Schneider wouldn't work with Gibson regardless if he offered him the lead role in Passion of the Christ 2 or a "juicy voice-over role in his new flick Apocalypto and spoke ancient Mayan."

"I, Rob Schneider, a 1/2 Jew, pledge from this day forward to never work with Mel Gibson, actor-director-producer and anti-Semite,"

In solidarity with Rob, I make the same pledge.

I think Schneider sees the humor in what he says and is making a joke and getting some publicity for it. I don't care for his humor myself, but he doesn't strike me as one who takes himself too seriously.

Mel has more in common with Michael Moore.


Gibson inspired by 'fear-mongering' Bush (Flashback: Gibson Part of Hollywood Bush Hate Contingent)
Yahoo ^ | May 12, 2006

Posted on 07/31/2006 12:00:03 PM PDT by MikeA

Film star and director Mel Gibson has launched a scathing attack on US President George W Bush, comparing his leadership to the barbaric rulers of the Mayan civilisation in his new film Apocalypto.

The epic, due for release later this year, captures the decline of the Maya kingdom and the slaughter of thousands of inhabitants as human sacrifices in a bid to save the nation from collapsing.

Gibson reveals he used present day American politics as an inspiration, claiming the government callously plays on the nation's insecurities to maintain power.

He tells British film magazine Hotdog, "The fear-mongering we depict in the film reminds me of President Bush and his guys".

"Gibson, who insists ideology matters less to him than stories of 'penitential hardship' like his Oscar-winning Braveheart, puts it more bluntly: 'The fearmongering we depict in this film reminds me a little of President Bush and his guys.'"

I Bommer, all American, pledge to work with Mel Gibson if so lucky to work with him, because I could care less who or what he hates! As an American he has the right to hate for whatever reason. I personally hate liberals, Democraps, RINO's lawyers, Kennedy's, child molesters, politicians in general, France, Communists, ACLU members, people that don't speak English, yet expect to be treated as Americans, people that hyphenate their race, and spelling Nazi's on this forum!

This 1/2-ass attempt at humor is not going to be well-received in Hollyweird, as it exhausts some of the faux-self-righteousness capital that people who never liked Gibson were hoping to use against him.

The Flag Code
Title 4, United States Code,Chapter 1
§ 8. Respect for flag
(d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel

Rob Schneider should have no trouble in defining what is the flag as it has been conveniently defined for him.

According to the flag laws of the District of Columbia and most states, the words "Flag of the United States" include any flag, or picture of any flag, in which the colors, the stars, and the stripes may be shown in any number which, WITHOUT careful examination or deliberation, the average person may believe to represent the Flag of the United States.
