Skip to comments.Obama Is a ‘Snake’ and ‘We Have to Turn on Him’ Says Oliver Stone

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.
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.
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.
