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?
He's a flaming liberal. I refuse to watch his movie too.
No, but I heard them on 1210am in Philly this morning. He said he liked F-9/11 and totally ripped the mission in Iraq.
I never really bought that he was this great conservative like many here seemed to believe. This kinship comment does it for me. He's on my boycott list. He suckered a lot of people with Passion though.
If true, I'll admit that I'm as surprised as anyone.
Sometimes there is a big difference between a "social conservative" and a "conservative."
See, folks, he liked Fahrenheit 9/11. Says it all. And he is not religious like he claims. I could understand a rational reason in being against the war but to praise Michael Moore and the film and attack the President's reason shows what kind of person Mel Gibson is. HE IS NO CONSERVATIVE AND HAS NEVER BEEN.
He has said this before, he wants his Hollywood friends back.
He praised Fahrenheit 9/11. He praises Michael Moore and his hate rhetoric propaganda film. There's something wrong there. He's a poser, folks.
Well, that really is a disappointment. For starters, if he can't see the blatant propaganda in F9/11 he's as blind as a bat. How can you "like" propaganda? It's retarded. This is like a slap in the face for those who campaigned to get people to vote for Passion of the Christ.
Are you aware Mel Gibson was going to finance Moore's movie? Moore claims the "White House" pressured gibson away from it.
Y'all are all tripping out, accusing this man of something without even having the facts. And, to think that you accuse the liberals of being the ones who do this. Someone posts an "I heard this" post, with no source to back it up and you all go mad. This is pitiful.
Gibson's a nut, always has been ....but makes great movies. I'm particularly fond of Mad Max!
Please provide a link to the article where Gibson does this. I am curious to read it in it's entirety.
So far no "entirety". Someone heard something on the radio or television and well, here you have chaos.
OK - why are so many of you suprised??? One can be conservative and still opposed to the war in Iraq. Obviously Mr. Gibson is of that ilk. No one could doubt his cultural conservatism last year; but now, as he opposes this administration's ill-considered policies in Iraq, he is a "liberal"?
I suppose many of you think that "conservatism" equates with buying 100% into the ravings of Limbaugh and Hannity. Well, sorry - it does not, IMHO.
Yes he suckered a ton of people around here with that and also with his acting like a military man on movies. Some people have a hard time discerning a real uniform from a costume. I think this Diehard character is probably the closest to his own philosophy.
