OLIVER STONE

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.

OLIVER STONE LOVES HUGO CHAVEZ

Out of the land of Oz comes lavish praise for one of the worlds best known nation destroyers, from one of the worlds best known film makers.

The Associated Press reported Friday:

CARACAS, Venezuela — American filmmaker Oliver Stone said Friday he deeply admires Hugo Chavez.

Stone heaped praise on Chavez, saying he is leading a movement for “social transformation” in Latin America.

“He’s a soldier and he speaks from his heart,” Stone said. “His vision is huge. … And he will go down in history.”

Stone said President Barack Obama’s administration, in spite of initially inspiring hope, hasn’t done anything to improve U.S. relations with Chavez or his Latin American allies.

The director [Oliver Stone] defended his decision not to interview Chavez’s opponents, saying that people already hear those complaints and that the movie is not intended as a detailed examination of Chavez’s record.

Does Stone really believe this or has he sold his soul to the devil for the sake of his film? Some members of the entertainment industry live in a bubble within a bubble, utterly unable to see out and beyond, to the real world. Michael Moore looks toward Cuba and sees a utopia. Venezuela is fast becoming a basket case yet Sean Penn is blind to it, and so it seems, is Oliver Stone.
