Mel Gibson and the Holocaust

According to the Times, Mel "Lethal Weapon" Gibson "has a new project under way: a nonfiction miniseries about the Holocaust".

Does anybody else see a problem with this?

  • Seeing as that Gibson's father is a fundamentalist Catholic and an ardent Holocaust denier, I'd have to say yes. Yes, I do see a problem with this.

  • A major one. Probably the Jews will be blamed for their persecution.

  • Maybe he'll surprise us. Maybe he wants to make up with his Jewish public.
    Anyway, you see anyone in their right mind distributing a denialist Holocaust film?
    Now, he might be a sneaky bastard and try a documentary about one of the very, very few rich, right-wing Jewish families who managed to cruise through the Nazi period without even having to get fake Aryan ID papers (There was a prominent publishing family who married off a daughter to an SS Colonel...). And then use this to claim that the Holocaust wasn't really that bad or, my personal favorite, that it was a Zionist plot. He'd have no trouble getting this distributed in the Middle East, aside from Israel, of course.
