Christopher Hitchens On Mel Gibson

From today’s Slate:

And it has been obvious for some time to the most meager intelligence that he is sick to his empty core with Jew-hatred. This is not just proved by his twistedly homoerotic spank-movie The Passion of the Christ …

[T]he difference between the blood-alcohol levels—and indeed the speed limits—that occasioned the booking are insufficient to explain the expletives…One does not abruptly decide, between the first and second vodka, or the ticks of the indicator of velocity, that the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion are valid after all.…

No, he spoke his “mind,” and in case anyone wants to burble about political correctness, it should be added that he spoke this way because of his religion, not just his warped personality. Let him keep the fortune he made from a pogrom movie…there was another touch of in vino veritas when he tearfully told the cops that “my life is f—ed,” and this inadvertent truth ought to be remembered in all charity as the last words we ever want to hear from him.

    It’s been obvious for some time that Christopher Hitchens, besides already being one of the dimmest of “intellectual lights” must seriously be a perverted individual since he is the only commentator I know of who got his homo-erotic tingles watching “The Passion of the Christ”.

    Hitchens giving advice on “haters” is akin to him giving advice on hygiene. He has no room to talk.

    And Hitchens bigoted attack on Catholicism is just another example of his rank hypocrisy and ignorance.

    I would love to watch Hitchens take a test on his “vast knowledge” of Catholicism. He would fail miserably because he’s simply a miserable, perpetually unhappy secularist sock puppet with delusions of grandeur and his own skewed sexual identity.
