More Bad News For Mel From Down Under: Turns Out Gibson Had Previous Ties To Aussie Anti-Semite Group
Australia Herald Sun | Lincoln Wright | Posted Saturday August 5, 2006 at 05:07 PM

In the 24-hour news cycle, tomorrow's bad news for Mel Gibson hits today: according to tomorrow's [Sydney] Sunday Herald Sun, Mel Gibson once had ties to the Australian League of Rights, a right-wing group well-known in Australia for anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and Holocaust denial. Says the Herald Sun: "The league claims the world is run by a secret society of Jews." (Who, presumably, are responsible for all the wars in the world.) ...

Back to Mel: apparently in 1987 he campaigned for a friend, Rob Taylor, a League of Rights member who ran (unsuccessfully) in a regional election. Per the Herald Sun:

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.

Recall that Hutton Gibson is an on-the-record Holocaust revisionist who has said that the Holocaust was "mostly fiction." Prior to last week's drunken hate-spewing DUI kerfuffle, Gibson drew criticism for not distancing himself from his father's remarks.

Will somebody please take this asswipe out of the oven--He done.
