"Mel Gibson once had close links to the Australian League of Rights, a Far Right group notorious for its anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and Holocaust denial.
The league claims the world is run by a secret society of Jews.

The Hollywood star's foray into Far Right activist politics in Australia occurred in 1987 when he campaigned for a friend, Rob Taylor, who stood unsuccessfully for the northern Victorian federal seat of Indi.

Charles Pinwill, a former Queensland state director of the League of Rights, said he knew Gibson's father, Hutton, and said Gibson was interested in the league's ideas.

"They were never members of the league, no. But we never really recruited members, just support. (Mel and Hutton) were interested in some of our ideas," Mr Pinwill said.

"His dad had politically similar ideas to me. His dad had a well-considered philosophy, he thought things through.

"I knew (Mr Taylor) was a friend of Mel's. Mel's not really a political animal, he's interested in spiritual things."
That group is one of the funnier ones in Australia, their still around too and have their low budget website.

Are they the ones who 'out' people who are having affairs etc. by distributing flyers around the neighbourhood? Or is that another collection of nutters?

Possibly another group, all I know is that a bunch of fliers were put up at uni that had a picture of the trade centre and a whole diatribe blaming the terrorist attacks on "wealthy New York bankers".

Verte, all I can say is this. My sister's father, (my 2nd stepfather) beat my poor mother to a pulp for years, and she was too much of a saint to do anything about it, b/c he was a nice guy when he was sober. But one day he almost pushed her down a flight of stairs with my 2 yr old sister in her arms. I pushed her to get a warrant for his arrest, b/c the neighbors were willing to give testimony about all the damage he did to her.

That finally did the trick. Threat of arrest worked. He never beat her again.....until he walked out on her 19 yrs later. And now, becuase of him, she lies in an early grave.

I'm sorry, I have compassion for people with alcohol problems, but it gets to a point where enough is enough. After that, scaring the s#*# out of them is the only chance you've got to pound sense into their thick skulls.And Mel needs to know that he dies not "own" anybody..he needs to be taken down a peg. Or five.

Egads, that's horrible about your family. I'm really sorry you had to go through all of that crud because of someone's addiction. Addiction is a serious illness. Getting the addict to admit they've got the problem is the hard part. Mel has gone into rehab, maybe he'll learn something.

I love how one member can claim "he was interested in our ideas" which = close links to a group. Just as long as it fits the puzzle.

His first interview

(AP)"Gibson spoke with Diane Sawyer somewhere in Southern California recently for a two-part TV interview scheduled to air on Disney-owned ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Oct. 12 and 13. This is the first time he has talked to the media since his arrest.

The interview “will be a segment in the show,” said ABC news spokeswoman Bridgette Maney. “It’s not going to be the entire ‘Good Morning America’.”

As for what to expect during the discussion, Gibson’s publicist, Alan Nierob, would only say, “We’ll have to wait and see.”

Just the stupid ramblings of a drunkard....

abc.com

Oct. 10, 2006

Sawyer asked Gibson what caused his comments on the night of his arrest.

Diane Sawyer: "What did you think it was?"

Mel Gibson: "Me? It was just the stupid rambling of a drunkard, you know and … what I need to do to heal myself and to be assuring and allay the fears of others and to heal them if they had any heart wounds from something I may have said. So, this is the last thing I want to be is that kind of monster," Gibson said.

Gibson apologized for the comments in a statement but has not discussed the incident at length until now.

ABCNews.com will release more excerpts from his full interview with Sawyer later today.

Watch Sawyer's exclusive interview with Mel Gibson Thursday, Oct. 12 and Friday, Oct. 13 on "Good Morning America," which airs across the country from 7 to 9AM.

On Oct. 12, Sawyer will ask Gibson about alcoholism and drunk driving. On Oct. 13, she will ask him about his anti-Semitic remarks.

I happen to prefer Coke over Pepsi. Anyone want to start a 16 page thread about my personal preferences that do not affect anyone else?

Personal preference?

So now racism and anti-semitism are just personal preference that don't affect anyone?

Now I've heard everything.

Ok so Mel just doesn't prefer Jewish people (and just prefers Catholics over Jewish people), and his father just prefers to believe that the Holocaust never happened. I feel much better now. Next time someone is charged with a hate crime, they can just say it is a personal preference like Coke or Pepsi and they will just be set free.

Unbelievable
