Gary Oldman is now paying for his sin: pointing out that Hollywood is largely run by Jews. His mandatory genuflection has begun, with an open letter to the Anti-Defamation League, an organization that protects Jewish ethnocentrism by attacking any form of white gentile ethnocentrism.
Dear Gentlemen of the ADL:
I am deeply remorseful that comments I recently made in the Playboy Interview were offensive to many Jewish people. Upon reading my comments in print—I see how insensitive they may be, and how they may indeed contribute to the furtherance of a false stereotype. Anything that contributes to this stereotype is unacceptable, including my own words on the matter. If, during the interview, I had been asked to elaborate on this point I would have pointed out that I had just finished reading Neal Gabler’s superb book about the Jews and Hollywood, An Empire of Their Own: How the Jews invented Hollywood. The fact is that our business, and my own career specifically, owes an enormous debt to that contribution.
I hope you will know that this apology is heartfelt, genuine, and that I have an enormous personal affinity for the Jewish people in general, and those specifically in my life. The Jewish People, persecuted thorough the ages, are the first to hear God’s voice, and surely are the chosen people.
I would like to sign off with “Shalom Aleichem”—but under the circumstances, perhaps today I lose the right to use that phrase, so I will wish you all peace–Gary Oldman.
Best of all: The ADL doesn’t find Oldman’s above apology “sufficient“.
Mind you, in the same Playboy interview, when asked “What about the Pope?”, Oldman answers, “Oh, f*ck the Pope!” Does this mean Oldman is also anti-Catholic? Or is he rather speaking off the cuff, in a rousing free-form interview?
I should also add that had Oldman limited himself to the Pope line, and not mentioned the J-word, the ADL wouldn’t have said boo.
