Sometimes random celebrities lay down some inconvenient truths for the people and it causes an almighty stir.
Commissioner Gordon — otherwise known as actor Gary Oldman — had a pretty frank interview with Playboy that probably went too deep for his employers.
Besides calling political correctness “crap,” he also mentioned some rather impolite facts:
“Mel Gibson is in a town that’s run by Jews, and he said the wrong thing because he’s actually bitten the hand that I guess has fed him – and doesn’t need to feed him anymore because he’s got enough dough…
“We’re all fucking hypocrites,” he added. “That’s what I think about it. The policeman who arrested him has never used the word nigger or that fucking Jew?”
He also went on to mention how Jewish comedians like Jon Stewart and Bill Maher are able to get away with politically incorrect comments, but gentiles like Gibson and Alec Baldwin are not.
As Steve Sailer has said, “political correctness is a war on noticing,” so it’s very likely Oldman is going to get hounded for his comments and forced to apologize.
But that didn’t stop him from noticing.
UPDADTE: Oldman has issued an apology of sorts that could also be construed as a subtle “fuck you” to his critics:
Dear Gentlemen of the ADL:
I am deeply remorseful that comments I recently made in the Playboy Interview were offensive to many Jewish people. Upon reading my comments in print—I see how insensitive they may be, and how they may indeed contribute to the furtherance of a false stereotype. Anything that contributes to this stereotype is unacceptable, including my own words on the matter. If, during the interview, I had been asked to elaborate on this point I would have pointed out that I had just finished reading Neal Gabler’s superb book about the Jews and Hollywood, An Empire of Their Own: How the Jews invented Hollywood. The fact is that our business, and my own career specifically, owes an enormous debt to that contribution.
I hope you will know that this apology is heartfelt, genuine, and that I have an enormous personal affinity for the Jewish people in general, and those specifically in my life. The Jewish People, persecuted thorough the ages, are the first to hear God’s voice, and surely are the chosen people.
I would like to sign off with “Shalom Aleichem”—but under the circumstances, perhaps today I lose the right to use that phrase, so I will wish you all peace–Gary Oldman.
