Director Oliver Stone went Moore Mad. From the London Sunday Times came this:
Director Oliver Stone belittled the Holocaust during a shocking interview with the Sunday Times today, claiming that America’s focus on the Jewish massacre was a product of the “Jewish domination of the media.”. The director also defended Hitler and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and railed against the “powerful lobby” of Jews in America.
Upon seeing the public furor over the remark, he retracted his statements and apologized. Apology accepted. He sincerely acknowledged that some of the things one believes should not be expressed in public.
However, if ever there was a man of the Left, Oliver Stone is it. Please note, this man of the left sided with Adolf Hitler in his interview with the Sunday Times. He is not the first from the Left to do so and do so. No less an icon than Charles Lindberg was a Hitler supporter. Lindberg supported Hitler (early on) because he, Lindberg, was a liberal and saw merit in Hitlers’s socialist agenda. Our liberal compatriots like to paint old Adolf as a man of the Right. Don’t believe it. Hitler’s Party was the National Socialists Party and nothing, absolutely nothing that he did would ever be condoned by the folks the Left calls ‘right wingers’, extremist or not.
