Mel’s anti-semitic tirade already starting to cost him.

Looks like Mel Gibson’s drunken rant about Jews and how he owns Malibu is already having an impact. ABC just announced they’re canceling a planned miniseries about the Holocaust Mel’s production company was supposed to make for them:

The incident has raised questions about the future of projects Gibson and his Icon Productions company are working on, like the ABC television miniseries based on a memoir about a Dutch Jew during World War II, the newspaper said.

An ABC representative told the paper, without elaborating, it has been two years and the network still has not seen a script, so the project is being pulled.

Well, that was very politic of them. They’re not canceling it because Mel has revealed his bigotry towards Jews, but because they’ve not seen a script. Very nicely played, Sugartits.

  1. WTF is this Stormfront site?  White pride? People take pride in ignorance and stupidity?

  2. Cindi, I’ve removed the Gravatar code for the time being because it was playing hell with the site. You’ve registered an account so, if you don’t mind, just upload your avatar to your profile here.

    I think I’m going to delete the Stormfront links. No need for me to be supporting that trash.

  3. Stormfront is actually a pretty good group. I’ve been to some local meetings and there are some very nice members. They don’t go to these meetings (That are in public restaurants) and start yelling about Hitler and other racist things. They actually have meaningful and productive discussions.

    Nobody should be shocked that mel is an anti-semite, his work pretty much screams it.

  4. WOOHOO!!  I’m back.  Thanks much, Les.  Anyway…

    Stormfront is actually a pretty good group. I’ve been to some local meetings and there are some very nice members. They don’t go to these meetings (That are in public restaurants) and start yelling about Hitler and other racist things. They actually have meaningful and productive discussions.

    Really. Do you have any examples of the “meaningful and productive discussions” they have? From the looks of their website, all I could imagine was a bunch of grunting and grabbing at crotches accompanied by “rabblerabblerabble” in the background.  I could be wrong.  Maybe.

  5. Moloch: As much as they will deny it for PC-ness reasons, they are a “white-supremacist

  6. I wonder if are any of them to know with absolute certainty there’s no racial mixture in their own heritage.

    I have traced my family back into the late 1600’s. My mom’s side is British and my dad’s side is Irish.

    Moloch, why have you been to their local meetings?

    Well, because I’m a member. I’m no organiser or anything with rank, I just like to keep up with people that have similar interests to my own.

  7. Moloch: My mom’s side is British and my dad’s side is Irish.

    As soon as I saw 1600 and Irish I thought of the Amada and the Black Irish from the ship-wrecked Spanish sailors – many of them Jews and Negroes.
    Ever thought of having your DNA tested to see if you’re really … WHITE?
    Nah. Don’t do that.
    The answer may disturb your supremist beliefs. LOL

  8. Anyone who makes a hobby of hating another ethnic group and/or praising his own clearly has nothing else going for him.

    I really wanted to call him a lobotomised fuckwit who needed some left brain feeding through his ultra-narrow corpus callosum but … I decided to try some tact – I’m not really sure what ‘tact’ is.
    I know mum didn’t have much. She used to embarrass me – LOL
    She was one of those creatures who was not beautiful but had … charisma – charm. Mmm. Charm.  I may be wrong, but I think Mr Wilde said: Charm; If a woman has it, she needs nothing else; if she doesn’t, nothing will help her. LOL
    But I don’t think it was now.
    Where was I? Too much THC and alcohol. Better finish before I lose the plot.
    That’s right – Moloch … I don’t want to settle for calling you a fuckwit. It’s so ad hominem (or what ever the fuck it is). I feel, as an older human, I am morally compelled to give some … I hate the word … ‘advice’.
    Shit it’s hard to think of an all encompassing sentence …
    How about … it’s easier to hold all humanity in your arms, than waste time being selective. KISS.
    Did that turn out okay?
    I like to think the THC lifts me to other tangentially spiked dimensions.
    The alcohol fucks me up and … slows my finger coordination down, drastically.  LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

  10. I’m not going to dump all over Moloch without knowing more about what his beliefs in that regard happen to be. Unlikely as it may be it’s still possible he could be a member of Stormfront for reasons other than he’s a white supremacist so without hearing specifically from him what his views are it’d be premature for me to say much about it.

    I will say that the revelation surprises me a bit. Most white supremacists don’t particularly care for my company. Not so much because I have a tendency to berate them about their views so much because I tend to be a pretty accepting person. I’m less worried about what race/gender/ethnicity/ sexual orientation a person happens to be than I am about what they do and that tends to piss them off because they see me as a race traitor.

    You’re free to think the white race is superior to all others so long as you’re not actively harming anyone else in the process. In other words, you can think like an asshole if you really want to, but the moment you try to put it into action there’s going to be trouble.

  11. Geekmom: Anyone who makes a hobby of hating another ethnic group and/or praising his own clearly has nothing else going for him.

    Amen.

    Like I said, I join their meeteings because most of them have alot of the same beliefs I do.

    The same holds true here. Sure Les, if I were to meet you in person we would most likely not get along, but you still have some of the same beliefs I do. Mostly on the religion issues and the little odd tidbits of info I’d otherwise never know about. A good example is the “Wilhelm scream.

  13. You know, there are a lot of crimes I support the death penalty for.  I believe that some things are so heinous and so irredeemably anti-social that in order to save society, people who promote them should be cleansed from our midst.

    Racism is one of them.

  14. Moloch: While I like Hitler for what he tried to do…

    Alright, it’s official: Moloch is a fucking nutcase.

    Geekmom, I don’t support the death penalty, but I agree with you that racism is so morally abhorrent that the desire to see racist assholes exiled from all society makes perfect sense.

  15. Sexy Sadie, you and Les can be more tolerant than I am; that’s okay.  The Southern Poverty Law Center doesn’t go nearly far enough in my eyes, but I send them money every month anyway. 

    Problem with these supremacists is that it ISN’T just enough for them to sit in their little circle jerks and get all excited over their current melanin deficiency.  No, sooner or later they get the idea that they ought to ACT on it, and that’s why they need to be stopped. 

    Being proud of your race is every bit as pathetic and silly as being proud of your gall bladder.  And it’s only a small step from being proud of your weenie.

  16. Being proud of your race is every bit as pathetic and silly as being proud of your gall bladder.  And it’s only a small step from being proud of your weenie.

    I dunno, I’d say it’s even dumber than being proud of your weenie. The weenie actually serves a practical purpose, while race is merely a social illusion.

  17. [Hitler] was still a christian.

    We’re making progress! At least he’s not an evil anti-christian atheist anymore.

  18. From Wikipedia

    “In public statements, especially before 1938, Hitler frequently spoke positively about the Christian heritage of German culture and belief in Christ.”

    “We hold the spiritual forces of Christianity to be indispensable elements in the moral uplift of the German people.”

    “Hitler advocated what he termed Positive Christianity, purged of everything that he found objectionable in conventional Christianity. Hitler never directed his attacks on Jesus Himself,but viewed traditional Christianity as a corruption of the original ideas of Jesus, whom Hitler regarded as an Aryan opponent of the Jews.”

    “My feeling as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God’s truth! was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter.””

  19. It makes me sick to my stomach when I see a mixed race couple with a kid.

    That’s the root of it- self loathing. We are all mutated Africans.

  20. No doubt about it, Hitler was smart … in some ways; he used the masses for his own entertainment.
    On the other hand he was a fucking stupid moron; if he hadn’t expended so much wasted energy and resources on murdering Jews he would have won, Mum woulda died and I wouldn’t have existed.

    Hitler: What luck for rulers that men do not think.

    and

    By means of shrewd lies, unremittingly repeated, it is possible to make people believe that heaven is hell—and hell heaven. The greater the lie, the more readily it will be believed.

    and then there’s

    In Germany, they came first for the communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists but I didn’t speak up because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time nobody was left to speak up. (Martin Niemoeller – Dachau 1944)

    I read that one many years ago and it’s followed my thinking whenever I think of putting some one down over race or skin colour.
    I can’t remember who said: If you get to know me you’ll find many other reasons to hate me other than just my skin colour.
    Racism is stupid because it limits what Food (I love Chinese), Music (I love Gypsy guitar), Movies (I like Jet Li), Cars (I love my little Japanese petrol miser Daihatsu Sirion), Art (I like Indian – not the US misnomer), Cats (I love Burmese), you can like. Whew.
    Jesus you must waste some energy categorising. LOL

  21. Racism is stupid because it limits…

    Then I guess I’m not a perfect white supremacist. I like Japanese women, I often eat at Chinese buffets, I live in a mostly mexican apartment complex, and I think Kim Jong IL is a good (For a communist) leader.

  22. Moloch: Then I guess I’m not a perfect white supremacist. I like Japanese women, I often eat at Chinese buffets, I live in a mostly mexican apartment complex, and I think Kim Jong IL is a good (For a communist) leader.

    LOL
    I suppose what concerns me is that you might get infected with the even more stupid virus. smile

  23. Regarding Hitler, it’s been said that it takes a certain amount of brains to be truly evil.

    It reminds me a bit of a Stephen King short story (from “Nightmares and Dreamscapes”) where a young genius attempts to eradicate all human evil by altering the chemical contents of the Earth’s potable water supply. His plan works, but there’s one hell of a catch: the reason that humanity has ceased to be self-interested and cruel is that (because of the chemical contents of the water) people have gradually become increasingly mentally retarded.

  24. Everyone, I’m not sure if you do much visiting to newgrounds or flashplayer, but both of them have a hilarious video of mel gibson as william wallace and his drunk ass. 

    Rock on!

  25. Regarding what Moloch said about not being a very good white supremacist, I think it may be impossible to be a perfect white supremacist. I mean, you’d have to only eat european food, avoid using foreign loanwords from non-white languages (like pyjamas or anime), not watch black comedians (come on, who could avoid watching Chris Rock, Richard Pyor or Eddie Murphy?), etc. Simply not realistic.

    Don’t forget that it would also require Moloch to disown his own DNA, as very, very few people are completely “white.”

  27. Moloch- the best rational explanation of white (read: European cultural) hegemony in the world today is not racial superiority, but geography and history.  If you’re open to reasoned argument, I recommend Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond.  Of course, since I’m at least 1/32 Native American, and Darwin knows what all else, you might not want to pay any attention to me.

    Sadie- while it’s true that races are blurry at the edges, and if you go back far enough, we all have ancestors of many colors (not to mention fins, etc), there are genetic differences between races that are important for medicine- for instance, the high incidence of sickle-cell anemia among blacks.

    Of course, this should obviously have no bearing on social behaviour.  Racism is poison.

  28. Elwed: Now you know.

    Yep, and it’s disappointing to say the least. Moloch should really hate me then as I’m about as mongrel as you can get. Despite the fact that I come from a long line of rednecks (some of whom are racist themselves) many members of my family tree weren’t overly discriminating about who they hooked up with.

    Which, really, makes the racists among my ancestors walking oxymorons. Or just morons.

  29. Just out of curiosity, Moloch, exactly how and why did your British-Irish family end up in North America?

    And exactly what is it that you find so horrible about a mixed race child?? I’ve never really understood the objection. And I can’t imagine why it is that any intelligent would person believe that the white race is superior to any other. (There are some very minor differences obviously, but superiority? Nah.)

    It makes no sense to me from a scientific perspective, and the only thing I can relate it to is a kind of tribalism (see Les’ thread on that). Racism of this sort is a simple reflection of in-group out-group bias taken to extreme—A kind of us-them mentality that is a simple primitive hold-over (though we see the powerful consequences of it every day all around the world).

  30. Yes, I would call myself a white supremacist. It makes me sick to my stomach when I see a mixed race couple with a kid.

    Hey, Moloch could be the perfect white supremacist.  Ever see pictures of these people?  They look like the result of generations of serious inbreeding, so maybe it is possible that they are “genetically pure.”  You know, the family tree with no branches.

    And it makes me sick to my stomach when I see a white supremacist couple wtih a kid.

  31. Moloch, too bad i filtered my impression of you through the light-hearted actor whose image you have chosen for your avatar.  Guess I really didn’t read what you had written closely enough.

    Racism is a mystery to me – I mean, really?  How does an otherwise rational person come to think as you say you do?

  32. Cindi: the family tree with no branches.

    LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

    DoF: … too bad I filtered my impression of you through the light-hearted actor whose image you have chosen for your avatar.

    I made that assumption up till a coupla months (?) ago when I handed him the crown for being the most self-centred selfish arsehole I’d known.
    Could one, using the Racist Maxim that suggests that all Xs are Bs, suggest that all Diesel Engine loving Truck Mechanics from Colorado are Racists?
    Nah. A ‘normal’ person could not make such a leap of logic … but a racist could.

    Moloch: I like Japanese women …

    But, do you like them coz they come across as subservient so it’d be easy to control one or, do you like them coz they’re beautiful creatures and you’d love to share your life with one – but not have kids of course or you’d get sick(er)?  smile

  33. DOF: Moloch, too bad i filtered my impression of you through the light-hearted actor whose image you have chosen for your avatar.  Guess I really didn’t read what you had written closely enough.

    Count me in as well. Of course, given Moloch’s revelations in this thread, his Doc Evil gravatar now resembles a little too closely a skinhead. Creepy.

  34. Wow.

    Take a few days off and I come back to shit like this.

    Moloch, you’re a sick, twisted little fucker. If I had magical abilities, I’d transform you into a southern black man that was about to be lynched so you could experience your kind of shit from the other side of the fence. Lacking that power, all I can do is hope that one day you end up on the receiving end of that kind of hatred.

    Or you could just drop dead, that’d be okay, too…..

  35. KPG: Or you could just drop dead, that’d be okay, too…..

    So … you don’t believe in trying to reason with the little fucker?  LOL
    You’re probably right.
    He’s close enough to being another True Believer™.

  36. Wow.

    I love you too.

    You’re probably right.
    He’s close enough to being another True Believer™.

    You don’t reason with evil, you bury it in the backyard…

    Or am I being a little too harsh?  cool smirk

  38. KPG: Or am I being a little too harsh?

    Nah … s’pose not. LOL
    I went to Moloch’s profile and noticed the Political Compass 2.63 & 2.72.
    His results are close to Tony Blair but not as far as Bullshit.
    So I took the test.
    I’m a -6.88 & -4.77 … somewhat similar to Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama although more a Libertarian (anarchist) than either.
    Now I know why I balked at calling it evil and burying it in the back yard.
    Of course I can still see that old newsreel (in my head) of Neville Chamberlain waving that piece of paper Adolph Hitler had signed.
    I can also replay parts of A Clockwork Orange in my head.
    Wonder how far Moloch will travel down that road till he comes to his senses or … is knocked senseless.
