Culture of Excuses

Mel Gibson described his infamous anti-Semitic rant at a policeman as "the stupid ramblings of a drunkard," the UK-based Evening Standard’s entertainment guide This is London reported.

According to the report, the actor, who has a long history of fighting alcoholism, also said he has not had a drink for 65 days, but admitted staying sober is a struggle.

That's strange. I have been falling-down drunk on a number of occasions, yet I have never launched into an anti-Semitic tirade.

This is a classic example of an individual avoiding responsibility for their own beliefs and actions, by blaming a scapegoat.
