WHAT COULD GO WRONG? THR: Mel Gibson comeback stays on pace with edgy comedy about … wealthy “Rothchilds.”

There are a few points not noted in either report. First, the Rothschilds are an ancient Jewish family of bankers who at one time were the wealthiest private citizens in the world. They were the 19th century equivalent to J. Paul Getty and the Rockefellers, and the descendants are still among the world’s wealthiest people. They are also the subject of a number of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories about world Jewish control, which practically anyone with an e-mail inbox has seen in one form or another. The family name itself practically substitutes for explanations of these kooky conspiracy theories.

D.C. Council member Trayon White Sr. (D-Ward 8), who posted to his Facebook page in March of 2018 that the city’s then-recent snowfalls were caused by “Rothschilds controlling the climate,” will no doubt be first in line for a ticket.
