Mel Gibson, Mark Lane and the JFK assassination

It’s been hard for me to work up too much interest in the recent Mel Gibson revelations. I mean, I already knew that he was a self-righteous racist prick with a fetish for violence. But, there’s a new twist today that’s captured my attention. It seems as though Oksana Grigorieva, the woman the devout Catholic actor left his wife for and then proceeded to beat and threaten, was just seen meeting with legendary conspiracy theorist Mark Lane. Lane, for those unfamiliar with the world of JFK assassination scholarship, is the author of Rush to Judgement, a seminal text in conspiracy circles. (It’s also worth noting that Lane is one of the few individuals to live through the mass murder orchestrated by People’s Temple leader Jim Jones in Jonestown.) Here’s a clip from TMZ:

…It’s unclear why Oksana and Lane are meeting. As we first reported, Gibson’s people believe the recordings of Mel and Oksana have been altered and the Sheriff’s Department is currently conducting an analysis. Lane has had plenty of experience with forensic evidence.

Lane is also a civil lawyer, which raises the question about a possible civil lawsuit…

My guess is that they want Lane to be an expert witness, attesting to the fact that it is indeed Gibson threatening to murder Grigorieva in the recorded messages, bit I am having fun, sitting here on the couch tonight, imagining that there’s something more… perhaps something involving Gibson’s father, the ultra-conservative Catholic conspiracy theorist Hutton “Red” Gibson… How weird would it be if somehow the JFK assassination was solved as a byproduct of all of this?

    So, you think there’s a message where Gibson says, “I’ll kill you, just like my father killed Kennedy?”

    All conspiracy theories are not created equal. Hutton Gibson does not believe the Holocaust took place. That’s exponentially crazier than not believing that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.
