Apocalypto Lies

God's on MY side
Christian Fundamentalist/Right Wing Propagandist?
Saddam Hussein stunt double?


Gibson brought Apocalypto to life on the propaganda front of a spiritual war, a deadly serious culture war between those who would protect and defend the Earth’s ability to live and those on the Christian Right who want to “bring on” Armageddon.

Over at The Fourth World Juan Santos questions Mel Gibson's agenda.

Mel Gibson is bearing a striking resemblance to Saddam, isn't he?? Wow. Scary shit.

But then, this place is becoming that, rather too fast for my liking.

And the right never heard the term 'self-fulfilling prophecy', I suppose. sigh.. Can't we jsut stick em all on an island somewhere, and let them get on with it and leave us the hell alone? How about Bikini, as we nuked that already..
