7. Oliver Stone: Hitler Would Be Totally Awesome, If It Wasn’t For The Joos
Oliver Stone proves that not only is it impossible to squeeze blood from a stone, it is also impossible to squeeze brains from Oliver Stone, as indicated in several recent interviews about his upcoming alleged documentary Secret History of America. According to Stone, Hitler has been taken out of context. By, you know, those pesky Jews.
The Sunday Times interviewer then asked why there was such a focus on the Holocaust.
“The Jewish domination of the media,” responded Stone. “There’s a major lobby in the United States. They are hard workers. They stay on top of every comment, the most powerful lobby in Washington. Israel has f***** up United States foreign policy for years.”
If not for the “Jewish domination of the media” we could just forget about that whole Holocaust thing. No big whoop. It’s more important to put Hitler and Stalin “in context”, according to Stone. He had this to say about that earlier this year:
Director Oliver Stone’s upcoming Showtime documentary miniseries “Secret History of America” promises to put mass murderers such as Stalin and Hitler ”in context.” ”Stalin, Hitler, Mao, McCarthy — these people have been vilified pretty thoroughly by history,” Stone told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s semi-annual press tour in Pasadena…
We can’t judge people as only ‘bad’ or ‘good.’ Hitler is an easy scapegoat throughout history and its been used cheaply. He’s the product of a series of actions. It’s cause and effect … People in America don’t know the connection between WWI and WWII … I’ve been able to walk in Stalin’s shoes and Hitler’s shoes to understand their point of view. We’re going to educate our minds and liberalize them and broaden them. We want to move beyond opinions … Go into the funding of the Nazi party. How many American corporations were involved, from GM through IBM.
Um, Oliver? The “context” is that Hitler and Stalin are evil and, you know, actual bad guys. That’s difficult for you to understand, I suspect, since you are a practitioner of moral relativism. Further, to you, there is no good or evil; everything is just “diverse cultures” and “self-expression” and such. The right kind only, of course, not like those marauding mobs of tea party attendees what with their peaceful assembly and redress of grievances. Plus, in your delusional mind, George W. Bush is the baddest bad guy ever. Well, and The Jews ™.
According to Stone and his fellow travelers, we can’t actually judge people by their horrific actions. Philistines! Liberalize your minds! Sorry, but I don’t wish to walk in Hitler’s shoes; if anything, I wish I could have shoved one where the sun don’t shine. Repeatedly.
He ended that interview by Godwinning himself, as always:
“Obviously, Rush Limbaugh is not going to like this history and, as usual, we’re going to get those kind of ignorant attacks,” said Stone, who also also compared the experience of sympathizing with war criminals to making his “W” movie about George W. Bush. “I’m trying to understand somebody I thoroughly despised.”
Geez Louise, has the comparing of George W. Bush to Hilter gotten old and tiresome. Dear Oliver Stone: try empathizing with reality, for once.
