Scapegoat

In contemplating the whole Mel Gibson drives drunk and says bad things about Jews event I have formed a conclusion.

I already thought the media had some generally anti-Semitic sentiments. The whole discussion of Israel's recent "disproportionate" response to the terrorist group that consistently kills Israeli civilians tipped me off. Not only is it completely illogical to have a proportionate war, it is completely wrong to report civilian casualties on one side and act like they do not exist on the other, or downplay them to a great degree. Not to mention the fact that Hezbollah often fires rockets from places near hospitals and schools to draw a response that will kill Lebanese civilians.

Anyway, now the media has found a way to draw attention from their own anti-Semitism -- Mel. Thanks for taking the flak Mr. Gibson, thanks for driving drunk and talking stupid. You're a great distraction. Keep it up now, keep talking. As long as they can tear you apart they make it look like they're okay and can go on reporting things the way they always do.

I'm so disillusioned . . .

What a coward you are. Yes, you do sing like a hypocrite.

I applaud your well-developed point there, Bob. It successfully conveys personal invective without a hint of suggesting you've read the post you're commenting on!

That's what comment threads are for, they are not for insulting people and ignoring the issue, coward
