Skip to comments.Obama Is a ‘Snake’ and ‘We Have to Turn on Him’ Says Oliver Stone
Posted on 08/14/2013 10:58:40 AM PDT by Lucky9teen
Film director Oliver Stonewho has made no secret of his liberal political viewscalled President Barack Obama a snake for his role in National Security Agency spying programs that have become, he said, more about silencing protestors than finding terrorists.
Obama is a snake, Stone told an audience in Tokyo on Monday. Hes a snake. And we have to turn on him.
The Boston Marathon, they were so busy tracking down potential protestors that they missed the bombers, Stone told the Foreign Correspondents Club of Japan. Its never about terrorists, it always becomes about the way J. Edgar Hoover did it; he brought all the weight of government to bear against protestors. He didnt like protestors. He thought they were left-wing communists. He never could find the proof, but by the time the Vietnam War came around, as you know, 500,000 people were on the list, and they were being eavesdropped on. And where are we now? Same place.
Stone said that admitted NSA leaker Edward Snowden is a hero to me. He sacrificed his well-being for the good of us all and that Russias Vladimir Putin did the right thing by granting Snowden asylum, according to PressTV.
Im proud of him for doing it, Stone said of Putin and Russia. We need more countries to stand up to the U.S.
Stone also called Snowden a hero last month and said its a disgrace that Obama is more concerned with hunting him down [Snowden] than reforming these George Bush-style eavesdropping techniques.
Last summer in the lead up to the 2012 Republican National Convention, Stone said hed vote for Ron Paul over Obama if Paul secured the GOP nomination. Stone suggested that Paul was the only one whos saying anything intelligent about the future of the world.
Relations between Russia and the U.S. have been frosty since the Snowden asylum decision, with Obama abruptly canceling a meeting with Putin, which was taken as a snub.

First the New York Times and now Oliver Stone. Two stories in a day that shock me.
Well, it’s the first time I’ve heard Oliver Stone say anything I would agree with.
And how did Mr. Stone vote in 2008 and 2012? Just curious.
Did he actively campaign or donate to any particular political group(s)?
Reality....welcome to it, to some minor degree, Oliver.
Look for the “second term is coming to an end, where the hell is my Socialist Utopia?” crowd to come crawling out of the woodwork.
Any sign of liberals waking up to the fact that they are mere PAWNS in 0bama’s totalitarian state crusade is a positive thing. By the way, where’s the ‘satire’ tag on this article?
It appears that Oliver Stone is a rare kind of person. A liberal with a non negotiable principle.
For most liberals, and almost all of the msm, principles are negotiable, depending on who is doing what. In the case of Obama, he can do almost anything without backlash.
Kudos to Oliver Stone, even if he and I agree about 1% of the time.
Think of Trotsky after he parted ways with Stalin.
Actually I’m more concerned they’ll be roaming the streets, still denying what bad policies and worshiping who took them there.
Agreed. What's scary about the Oliver Stones and Matt Damon's of the world, though, is they have the answer correct, but their work is all wrong. To them Obama is not Progressive enough. Wha?
“Look for the second term is coming to an end, where the hell is my Socialist Utopia? crowd to come crawling out of the woodwork.”
Those people are so irredeemably stupid that dealing with them will be easy for Dems. They’ll simply say the groundwork has been laid, but Bush, (the eeeevil George Buuuush!), screwed things up so bad, it will take more time. Now just elect Hillary, and it will be utopia time very soon.
Stone needs a tattoo on his forehead: ‘MT’
Dear Oliver: just because you thought a snake was a cuddly snuggle-rabbit doesn’t mean the snake changed. He just bit you, and reality intruded on your make-believe world. Some of us knew he was a snake right from the start.
Been irrelevant for a long time, Ollie?
Me neither. Perhaps we should ask Oliver to make a pro Tea Party flick and apologize to the whole world for living the life of a COMPLETE IDIOT for as many years as he has.
Some leftists become genuine freedom fighters, or has it in them from the start.
Like Oriana Fallaci.
Snakes are God’s creatures, and they have no concept of good or evil. They just are.
Obama was also one of God’s creations, but he has turned to the dark side, and has become an agent of Satan.
It’s not fair to snakes to compare them with Obama.
Get out the popcorn, this should be fun to watch.
This is what waking up and realizing BOTH sides of the aisle are working against the citizens they purport to represent looks like.
Look at FR after Romney. after W. Since Reagan.
We have more in common with some of these folks than we have in opposition in many cases:
1. Keep the government out of my business.
2. Keep the government out of the marketplace.
3. If you go to war, make sure its worth going, and make sure you WIN IT.
4. Don’t take shit off of the Russians or Chinese, and stop sending our jobs over there.
Even the left realizes that the unions are a suicide pact, and so are many of the greenies (just the liberal graft wing, like Wall St. and oil are to the right)
The one good thing about marijuana becoming legal is that maybe libertarianism can be about less government and more personal responsibility. It’s a simple, populist, platform.
Takes one to know one.
“Think of Trotsky after he parted ways with Stalin.”
Post of the day. Well done.
I think many self-professed Leftists out there are actually Libertarians and just don’t know it.
Seems like Stone may be slowly coming around to that realization.
Well, first of all Stone’s a known kook but even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while.
More credible sources and people need to turn on Obama and recognize the evil he has become. That’s really the only way a lot of news sources can regain a little semblance of credibility again after they’ve wasted it all supporting such an obvious fraud and charlatan. The facts of this presidents fraud, ineptness, incompetence, irresponsibility and mendacity are low-hanging fruit for any news agency or journalist to pluck.
OBAMA NEEDS TO BE DRIVEN OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE!
Then we can deal with the repercussions and begin the healing process of the obvious assault he has been on America.
Impeachment File on Communist, Benghazi Coward B. Hussein Obama, formerly known as Barry Soetoro, currently a Legal Citizen of the Sovereign Nation of Indonesia.
Drugs are bad. m'kay?
Good morning, Oliver. Nice to see you AWAKE for a change...
I am pretty sure this got around the propaganda shield that protects the Current Occupant now squatting in the White Hut. And it is probably pretty close to the personal feelings of Oliver Stone, as I saw his statement that was presented on the English-language cable channel CCTV, the international official voice of the Red Chinese government. Oliver seemed pretty sincere.
Given a choice of obtaining information from international BBC, CNN or the CCTV cable broadcast, the Chinese are probably less likely to inject gratuitous propaganda. They are no friends of the Current Regime in the White Hut.
The Red Chinese are no compatriots of the Muslim world, either. They seem to consider Barack Hussein O’Bama as more Muslim than “American”.
Does it make Oliver Stone a racist?
Back in the late 1960s, Olive Stone dropped out of Yale and joined the army. He went from being a person who cared enough about the country and disgusted enough with the elitism of who fought that he did what he did. He became very disillusioned and disgusted from what he saw in Viet Nam and one result is his movie BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY, which is a very strong statement about treatment of veterans. So, Oliver Stone comes by his cynicism through actions.
This is where constitutional conservatives and progressives can get it together. Snowden's not a traitor...he, like Stone, is someone who cares about the US and put himself out there. Everything Oliver Stone has done indicates a dislike of things like being spied on and out of control government.
So no, I'm not surprised at all. For a real lot of the intellectual leftiest, NSA spying, drones, and Benghazi would leave them fed up with Obama.
Yeah. So make a movie exposing just how much he is a snake.
The main disconnect with the Matt Damons and Oliver Stones is they cannot grasp that a police state is the naturally occurring byproduct of progressivism. If you were to compare their belief in the socio-political context to the laws of physics, they seem to believe that an object dropped should not and will not fall to the floor, simply because they don’t want it to. And they will never give up their belief, no matter how many times they have been proven wrong.
Interesting take. Thanks.
Kudos to Stone, but you really gotta laugh when someone works into an Obama condemnation several mentions of **J. Edgar Hoover and VIETNAM**..!!
Totally ridiculous, talk about re-tread, WOW...!
“First you take the guacamole, and add two cups of tobacco and one cup of FUDGE SAUCE...!!”
Ther is a big difference between a traditional liberal and a modern day progressive. What you’ve described is a traditional liberal (whom we have much in common with). Oliver is a fractional liberal.
This should be fun to watch!
Will Oliver...make a movie, and for this movie you won’t have to make anything up.
He also made Platoon based upon his personal experiences in Vietnam. Platoon along with The Deer Hunter, Apocolypse Now , and Saving Private Ryan are IMHO the best war movies ever made. They showed the true nature of war: horrific.
George Bush was actually trying to catch terrorists Mr Stone. Obama and his Cloward-Piven styled commie cabinet in the WH have turned it on Americans.
He’s a snake! But he’s our snake and I will gladly vote for him again. </oliver stoned>

Exactly, well put.
