So Jesse James may have cheated on Sandra Bullock but he’s made his fake penance by revealing all on Nightline, implicating his father of abuse. Now he says he’s tired of being thought of as a monster, and someone close to him hopes the Nightline interview will make him seem more human.
Sorry, not sure he’s achieving that goal. According to his former stepmom, Janina James Coan, he supposedly killed baby animals as a teen, emulating the Nazi “Angel of Death” Joseph Mengele by injecting them using a syringe filled with alcohol. She says that he was also obsessed with Adolf Hitler, and sometimes gave the Nazi salute. His own chopper business’ logo incorporates the historic Iron Cross, which hasits own negative connotations. But Jesse James insists he’s not a racist.
In his defense, he did adopt baby Louis Bardo with wife Sandra Bullock. I’ve also known numerous non-racist people with a geometric obsession with the Iron Cross and the swastika — the latter didn’t originate in Germany; it’s in many cultures. I also knew a talented young musician with a phenomenal voice much like David Bowie’s but who had once been obsessed with Hitler yet had several friends of “color.” So it is possible that Jesse’s not a racist — even despite that the subject of his affair, Michelle ‘Bombshell’ McGee has what might be deemed racist tattoos.
Yet, given the contradictory information from Coan, Jesse’s sister Julie James England, and their dad Larry James, someone in the family is lying about something. Usually it’s the person who perceives that they have the most to lose, not the person who has nothing comparative to lose. But not always.
