Looks like Hollywood’s finally found a
blacklist it can live with
. And on a related
matter, I find it appalling that some are holding against him Mel Gibson’s
refusal to publicly disavow his Holocaust-denying father. If my father held
the same beliefs, I would give him hell behind closed doors, and I would not
defend him in public. But I would, as a matter of personal honor, never
allow myself to be put in a position of condemning him in front of others.
Would you do that to your father? I would be squeamish if the Meeropol kids,
the offspring of executed commie spies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, trashed
their parents in public (as distinct from actually defending their parents,
which would be immoral). But then again, Hollywood and the media elite would
never ask them to.
