Thanks to Josh for pointing out this recent broadcast of MSNBC's Scarborough Country.
I do have to ask, what is this man even doing on TV at this point? He is no better than David Duke. He's a Jew-hater. Yet he goes on American Family Radio. He goes on MSNBC. The American Family Association's AgapePress quotes Donahue to defend their positions on "family" issues. Would they quote David Duke and other Jew-haters to defend their positions on their culture wars? Or is any Jew-hating bigot is a-okay so long as he claims to speak for God? Is that the religious right's position? Is that MSNBC's position? Funny these guys are all worried about Janet Jackson's nipple but when it comes to people who spread anti-Jewish world conspiracy theories in the name of God, they're totally mum.
PAT BUCHANAN: Bill Donahue, what do you think about "The Passion of the Christ"? And as a practical matter, even if Hollywood hated the film, it seems to me as an artistic work of art, a smashing triumph, a film of great controversy and interest, it ought to at least be nominated for best picture. It pulled in more money than any other picture all year.
WILLIAM DONAHUE, PRESIDENT OF THE CATHOLIC LEAGUE: I spoke to Mel a couple of weeks ago about this. And I don't think it really matters a whole lot to him. It certainly doesn't matter to me. We‘ve already won.
Who really cares what Hollywood thinks? All these hacks come out there. Hollywood is controlled by secular Jews who hate Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular. It's not a secret, OK? And I'm not afraid to say it. That's why they hate this movie. It's about Jesus Christ, and it's about truth. It's about the messiah.
Hollywood likes anal sex. They like to see the public square without nativity scenes. I like families. I like children. They like abortions. I believe in traditional values and restraint. They believe in libertinism. We have nothing in common. But you know what? The culture war has been ongoing for a long time. Their side has lost.
You have got secular Jews. You have got embittered ex-Catholics, including a lot of ex-Catholic priests who hate the Catholic Church, wacko Protestants in the same group, and these people are in the margins. Frankly, Michael Moore represents a cult movie. Mel Gibson represents the mainstream of America.
