Sarah Palin Is “A Moron,” Oliver Stone Says

Sarah Palin is “a moron,” Hollywood movie director Oliver Stone told CNN’s new show “Parker Spitzer.” Stone is the director of such anti-American classics as “Salvador,” “Comandante” (an ode to  Fidel Castro), and “Born on the Fourth of July.”

In a discussion about whether a movie should be made about Palin, the leftist filmmaker and admirer of Che Guevara and Hugo Chavez said:

She doesn’t say anything. She’s very colorful but you give her more and more power like Father Coughlin in the 1930s or she’s an Andy Griffith character out of A Face In the Crowd or something.

According to, “A Face In the Crowd” is a 1957 movie starring Andy Griffith in which “a hobo becomes an overnight media sensation.” The description continues, “But as he becomes drunk with fame and power, will he ever be exposed as the fraud he has become?” A towering figure in his time, Father Charles Coughlin was a radio star in the 1930s known for his enthusiasm for radical redistributionism.

Stone’s display of leftist condescension didn’t end there. In an amazing non sequitur he brought the Ku Klux Klan into the conversation and implied women should never have won the right to vote. “Ignorant people run for office and they win. The Ku Klux Klan was marching 100,000 in the streets of Washington, D.C. in in 1923 to astounding success with white sheets on their heads,” Stone said.

“All kinds of crazy stuff happens. We’ve had suffragettes,” he said of the early twentieth century activists who helped American women win the right to vote. Stone lumped the suffragettes in with temperance crusaders who helped take away the right to imbibe.

Amazingly, Stone did not compare Palin to Adolf Hitler, but surely he must have wanted to.
