Joe Eszterhas: "I Have Mel Gibson's Hateful Rants On Tape!"

Smelly Mel

Mel Gibson was going to direct a movie about the Jewish Maccabees revolt in the second century BC, announcing it as a sort of olive branch in his quest to live down past transgressions and convince the world he's a lover not a fighter.

On hearing about that production, a lot of Jews were even more horrified than when they first saw Springtime for Hitler, though this time it wasn't so funny.

Furthermore, Joe Eszterhas, who famously wrote Showgirls, was set to do the script and thought of it as "a Jewish Braveheart."

That actually sounded good to me (if not to everyone). I loved Showgirls!

But Warner Brothers passed on Joe's script and so did Gibson, deeming it woefully inadequate -- though Gibson didn't even contact Eszterhas with a response after the writer put in two years of research and toiling.

That is, until Eszterhas wrote Gibson a fiery letter and it went public!

As The Wrap reported, Eszterhas wrote Gibson that he bets the Oscar winner never wanted to make the film in the first place. After all, "You hate Jews."

He went on to describe Mel's horrific anti-Semitic rages (Mel supposedly calls Jews "oven dodgers") and also his alleged screeds about wanting to kill his ex, Oksana.

Gentle Mel replied that most of that was utter bull.

And that brings us delightfully up to date.

The newest twist in this Judeo-assault is that Joe says Mel had better not cry "liar" because Joe happens to have the Beaver star's screeds on tape! And he has witnesses, too!

Great detective work, kid.

But will anyone care?

Probably not. As long as Mel doesn't go anywhere near this project, I'm sure Jews the world over will rest a little bit easier, tape or no tape.

Let's hope someone more reputable ends up directing it.

This is another OJ vs the People or another CBS vs Westmoreland. Each side is guilty of what the other side is saying, give or take.

It's all moot, since no one will believe Gibson in any role but Hitler, Goering or Himmler..

His face is beginning to look like his reputation: rapidly disintegrating.

 OF COURSE Gisbon passed on that script shitted out by Joe E..Joe E is a relic of the 1980's whose films are unwatchable. Mel Gibson is a nasty, mean drunk who star had faded before he had a public meltdown but he is not stupid.Bringing up the fact Gibson is an unstable, nasty antisemite won't change the fact Joe E's scripts are 100% garbage.

@c4a60c19a94ee4690d497eaffb24dd5b:disqus are you kidding me? There's more substance from Musto than 95% of what comes from alleged "news" outlet. Perhaps you think it can be dismissed under the 'gossip' or 'entertainment' categories, but he has the balls and the forum to report unreported stories. And really, if you think there's nothing of value here, why are you so expert on what's being written in this space?

Well, let's see, I posted the coming-out interview of a well-known actor two days ago, along with defenses of a transsexual beauty pageant contestant who'd been dissed, information about the Stonewall rebellions, critiques of homophobic institutions, and so on....But not sure what any of that has to do with Mel Gibson's anti semitism.

Joe is using his own free speech to lambast Mel's hateful, antiquated, dumb, illogical views. And someone here is actually saying this is shameful? So pathetic.

Not sure who to side with here, since Joe is obviously fuming because his script was rejected. But I'll side with him anyway since he's got the goods on Mel and any chance to slime the creep should be seized on.

Free speech is criticized??? So no one should criticize someone ranting that jews should go into the ovens? You are a moron.

You just revealed your true colors. You're an antisemite so you think Mel's comments should not be protested. Then you realized he doesn't like black people either. Whoops.

That doesn't mean all Jews are racist any more than OJ proves all blacks or psycho or Mel Gibson proves that all Australians are antisemitic.

Mel Gibson was drunk when she said "Jews are responsible for all wars." That was an overstatement to say the least. That said it is common knowledge that the Israeli lobby and Jewish journalist such as Bill Kristol, Charles Krauthammer,John Podhoretz, Jonah Goldberg, Drudge, Judith Miller, David Brooks, Ben Stein (All Jewish), just to name a few, were all instrumental in promoting the unnecessary invasion of Iraq. Even Joe Klein, who is also Jewish, admitted as much when he said the Iraq war could not have happened without the endeavors of 25 journalist.

Now the drumbeat for war is again being pushed by AIPAC and it's radical Zionist core supporters. This time they want the US to bomb Iran, who, according to inspectors on site, IS NOT BUILDING A BOMB! This is part of the gameplan devised in the think tank paper Project for a New American Century and Protecting the Relm, which basically calls for the US to use it's military might to "Refashion" the middle east in favor of Israeli dominance. You cannot ignore a powerful influence like the Israeli Lobby and it's warlike mentality.

I conclude by saying it is not "all" Jews who are promoting these wars. My favorite journalist happens to be Glenn Glenwald (Jewish and Gay) at Salon and Seymour Hersh (Jewish). Mr. Hersh just reported that the US is training terrorist (MEK) to create havock in Iran. He also penned "The Lie Factory" which told of how the bogus intelligence about Iraq was manufactured in the bowels of he pentagon by another radical Zionist, Doug Feith.

This is a serious situation, our military being co-opted by Israel and our bought and paid for politicians who stand in fear of the money Jewish organizations can put into a campaign along with the clout Israeli firsters have in the media. Exposing AIPAC and it's intentions did not need to be broadcast to the world in a drunken rant. It needs to be brought to the forefront by very sober men and women who love this country and who love peace, even it means being labled an anti-semite.

Right but you complained about how free speech is criticized. You even said it was scary that this would happen and that slavery will come back as a result. The whole point of free speech is that you are allowed to speak up against stupid, hateful remarks--like YOURS. Joe was brave to speak up against Mel's bigotries, and you had a problem with it, saying this would lead to horrible things for our country. You are SICK!!
