- Mel Gibson's movie "The Passion" set out to
be a statement and work-of-art with the simultaneous desire to exhibit
the Gospel message in a unique form for film (produced entirely in latin
and aramaic languages without subtitles), centered on the affliction of
Jesus of Nazareth at the hands of his persecutors some 2000 years ago.
- The first controversy which stirred about this film was
that it would, unlike its predecessors in cinema, 'tell it like it is,'
a no-holds-barred bloody spectacle... because that is precisely what happened
to Jesus; the vicious prison beatings - his beard plucked from his face,
the public lashing with a device designed to shred away flesh down to the
bone -- 39 times -- to the crushing ordeal of carrying his cross through
the streets while being spat upon, pelted with stones and shards of glass,
to the literal nerve-splitting, excruciating crucifixion; that's
where the word comes from -- "ex" = out of & "crusia"
= the cross. The ordeal of Christ's unjust torture and murder by
his conspirators through the agency of the Roman government is intrinsic
to the story. Even the Apostle Peter, a Jew, did not hold back in his excoriation
of what they had done: "But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and
desired a murderer to be granted unto you; And killed the Prince of life,
whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses" (Acts
3:14-15). The history, politics and iconoclastic nature of Jesus' revolutionary
message to the Jews is pivotal. Inexpendable. For any one element to be
removed, diminishes the whole.
- In times past cinema and theatre have
attempted to deliver the story wrapped in everything from outlandishly
wooden performances with crucifixions so romanticized as to be silly (ie,
"The Greatest Story Ever Told" with Max Von Sydow) to revoltingly
humanistic rapes of the Gospel like the late 70s "Godspell,"
where Christ is reduced to a superman-clown performing magic tricks to
song-n-dance Gospel messages... and no resurrection. Franco Zeffirelli
in 1977 attempted a tour de force in his multi-part mini-series for televison,
"Jesus of Nazareth," but even it fell short of capturing the
true pangs of the horror in the death of Jesus, though it scored very big
points for artistry and adhering to most essential Gospel profundities.
Later, Martin Scorsese would overshadow the Gospel message almost entirely,
yet while creating an unforgettable crucifixion that had people weeping
openly in the theatres. The right combination has simply never been accomplished.
Gibson's "The Passion" promised to be the 'great white hope'.
But once again, forces entangle and overthrow...
- The next big controversy centered around Gibson's personal
motives for making the film, attacks on his personal life, past, even his
family began to surface. Out of this the well known stench of Jewish Defense
League and ADL mindlessness began to waft through the air. Sure enough,
it was eventually revealed the Gibson and company were being intimidated
and harassed by Jewish groups in a snit to 'change' his film -- and alter
history -- to make Jews more comfortable with their historic role in the
death of the man who single handedly changed western civilization forever.
The audacity alone is astonishing, but not surprising. Not anymore.
- Meanwhile, Ernst Zundel, in failing
health, rots away in a Canadian jail cell while a confederacy of Orwellian
dunces attempt to prosecute him for his 'thoughts,' clearly to make an
example of him to anyone who would dare question the accuracy of Holocaust
numbers or demand historical veracity.
- Meanwhile Mordechai Vanunu is spending his 12th year
in an Israeli maximum security prison for daring to speak out about Israel's
secretive nuclear program in what is hailed by the U.S. as the shining
example of 'democracy' for the mid-east.
- Meanwhile David Icke is being systematically pursued
and persecuted by deranged anti-defamation squads and other fascist groups
along his lecture and books tours because they believe his speaking of
"reptilian" alien beings is code-speak for "Jews" trickled
out to a clandestine neo-nazi organization disguised as Icke/UFO/NWO aficionados.
- Gibson and company have clearly caved in to Jewish influence
and demands and "softened" the film, extracting scenes and circumstances
which cast Jews in an unfavorable light, be it historically valid or not.
Gibson started off as a true firebrand in this endeavor, with a passion
for his 'passion' -- for him to be suddenly and skillfully nipped in the
bud on this work of art must have more to do with mere money, public relations
or civic minded-ness. No, it is clear, considering the atmosphere of our
times, something far more disturbing in skullduggery is going on behind
the scenes. Someone is likely being threatened with physical harm. There
are times when one can just sense that something more is happening beyond
the veil, and this is one of them. When people suddenly go coldly silent,
when they hack off whole limbs of their statues, rewrite entire plays,
find themselves on a blacklist... someone somewhere has been pushed into
that corner of suffering extortion on a level no one should have to face.
There are those who don't believe such power exists nor is wielded in this
world. Those people are simply fools.
- This is not going to stop. Jewish "defense"
organizations and those who sympathize with them are steadily crucifying
one person after another, one voice after another, one artwork, author,
play, expression, political party, politician or public servant after another
on their cross of coerced appeasement. They don't give a damn about the
Constitution, the Bill of Rights, freedom of expression, freedom of speech
or religion -- they don't give a damn about anyone or anything but themselves,
and even THEY don't represent JEWS! They are entirely self-appointed overseers
of some nonexistent Jewish mythos that lays claims to everything from holy
land to moral absolution on the world stage to justification of racist/Apartheid
government to media control over how Jews are treated in an industry their
own people, for the most part, seemingly control. These people are in severe
denial, history has no meaning to them, truth is of no value whatsoever.
The truth be damned, so long as a star chamber of Jews have their way.
Gee... is this scenario FAMILIAR or what???
- They are a tiny group of extremists; powerful, evil,
unrelenting social dictators who have discovered that they can trump the
game anytime they want with the 'Jew card' and pull everything to a sickening,
deafening stop, and silence not only their critics but alter history and
art and politics to their own twisted bent. And what's worse, their actions
bring about untold persecutions by thickheaded racist morons who are their
anti-thetical equal opposites, bent on persecuting every Jew for what this
powerful minority of Jews do in their name.
- These people and these organizations need to be exposed,
defied at every turn and legally destroyed before they utterly dominate
every aspect of our lives. These are serious times. There are serious consequences
to complacency. It can last just so long before their cries of "anti-semitism"
and "nazi" to rouse the ire of the sensitive soon fall on scolded
ears who have also felt their unrighteous indignation as they burn everything
of truth in their path toward the ultimate victory of complete control.
But before it reaches that point, we have to do something about it. Speak
up, speak out, sacrifice what is necessary for truth. Gibson needs to.
I expected him to. He has failed. He is clearly unwilling to take the cup
offered him. We all need to. Or the tentacles of this insidious monster
will squeeze and crush out every bit of life and light left in this world.
