You Thought Mel Gibson Had Problems?

Posted on | July 26, 2010 | 12 Comments

At least when Mel was shouting ugly things, he had the excuse of being drunk. Oliver Stone, not so much:

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.
Stone said that his upcoming Showtime documentary series “Secret History of America,” seeks to put Hitler and Communist dictator Joseph Stalin “in context.”

In the “context,” that is, of hating America. And Oliver Stone’s hatred of American is probably the best explanation for why a formerly successful feature director, an Academy Award winner, is reduced to directing crackpot “documentaries” for cable TV. Who wants to watch movies based on the theme that America is the unique embodiment of evil in the world?

There’s something frightening, really, when you realize how many people bought into the conspiratorial worldview of Stone’s JFK and then ponder the pathological destination to which this worldview has led Stone. And does anybody doubt that Stone has a handy scapegoat for his career problems? Blame the Jews!

    I thought that Oliver Stone had a pretty good reputation of ‘Partaking the Herb’.

    So he might have been nursing a high since Lethal Weapon 2.

    Yeah, Oliver has been Stoned for sometime now. I know, the ‘Stoned’ gag was cheap, easy and fast. But enough about Jane Hamsher.

    Oliver Stone must be pissed some [members of a desert tribe] did not fund his latest movie.

    When Stone was trying to find a distributor for his first film, a cheap horror movie called “Seizure” he toppled forward and passed out drugged senseless in the middle of his pitch, according to his then partner.

    Thanks to the cultural setting created, ironically, by the (very unJewish) media such as the BBC bashing Jews and Israel has become acceptable.

    I also think Hollywood as a Jewish problem, simply put it loves dead weak dead Jews and hates strong live Jews.
