A sign of Bush's Personal Apocalypse

When the maker of a two hour long snuff movie thinks you have gone too far, you have.

Gibson inspired by 'fear-mongering' Bush

(mod note: this is obviously not what is written in the actual article)

Uber-conservative Holocaust-minimizing homophobes like - oh, and Film star and director - Mel Gibson has launched a scathing attack on US President George W Bush, comparing his leadership to the barbaric rulers of the Mayan civilisation in his new snuff film Apocalypto, in which he'll play the role he plays in every movie - the christ-like figure, tortured.

The epic, due for release later this year, captures the decline of the Maya kingdom and the slaughter of thousands of inhabitants as human sacrifices in a bid to save the nation from collapsing. (see? another snuff film)

Gibson reveals he used present day American politics as an inspiration, claiming the government callously plays on the nation's insecurities to maintain power. (mod note: oh happy noodles on a chopstick, I agree with Gibson)

He tells British film magazine Hotdog, "The fear-mongering we depict in the film reminds me of President Bush and his guys".

As opposed to YOUR kind of mongering, you whackadoo?
