Oliver Stone: 'Jewish-Dominated Media' Prevents Hitler from Being Portrayed 'in Context'
newsbusters.org ^ | July 25, 2010 | Alana Goodman

Posted on 07/25/2010 7:09:42 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

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 for "Secret History of America," seeks to put Hitler and Communist dictator Joseph Stalin "in context."

"Hitler was a Frankenstein but there was also a Dr Frankenstein. German industrialists, the Americans and the British. He had a lot of support," Stone told Sunday Times' reporter Camilla Long.

Stone said that, "Hitler did far more damage to the Russians than the Jewish people, 25 or 30 [million killed]."

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."

The director, who recently met with Iranian President Ahmadinejad, also slammed the U.S. policy toward Iran as "horrible."

"Iran isn't necessarily the good guy," said Stone. "[B]ut we don't know the full story!"

Mr. Stone, given that you just p***** off some of the most powerful people in the entertainment industry, you can effectively forget about getting financing for your next film project from just about any American studio....

The Left has a fascination with Hitler. I often wonder why so many tv shows, etc., just continue to rehash the same old footage, whatnot, of this guy. It’s a sort of worship.

"Hitler was a Frankenstein but there was also a Dr Frankenstein.

Last I knew, Dr. Frankenstein of popular knowledge was a fictional character (I could be wrong), but it's also possible that somebody somewhere surnamed Frankenstein also earned a doctorate in something. Such as "Truth in Jernalism."

Dear Mr. Stone, STUPID:

This is a very telling admission of Stone’s historical perspective. The American left, before the war, viewed Hitler as a fellow socialist. The American socialists wanted us to stay out of the war and be non aligned. That changed with Hitler’s invasion of Russia. The day after that happened, the American left did an about face and worked as hard as they could to get us in the war. I firmly believe that the American left’s hatred of all things Hitler is not due to the gas chambers, the invasion of western Europe, or anything thing else. His unforgivable sin was invading Russia, and for this he was evicted from the socialist left and became a right wing demon.

Sure, Ollie. The only problem with judging Hitler in this particular “context” is that you might still legitimately be considered a Bad Person if shoveling six million Jews into the ovens isn’t the worst thing you’ve done.

The Context for Hitler is Germany, early to mid 20th Century.

America has ALWAYS shown him in this context.

WTF is this idiot talking about?

Context. What a jerk.

And then some people, including some the members of this forum, are wondering why there is so much talk about the Holocaust. Those like Stone have enabled it.

Holocaust remains to be interesting because it's not only about Jews and Roma (Gypsies). It is about the mentality of people like Stone and socialism that makes it reach its evil manifestations.

That’s when there were real schools and there were not “education” degrees.

The director also defended Hitler and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and railed against the "powerful lobby" of Jews in America.

Defended Hitler adn Ahmadinejad? Based on what? How do you defend the indefensible?

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

Oh, yeah. I'm sure if we could only see things their way we could excuse the attempts at genocide. ;-/ Stone, you're an a**.

"Hitler was a Frankenstein but there was also a Dr Frankenstein. German industrialists, the Americans and the British. He had a lot of support,"

"But everyone else was doing it!" Yeah, my toddlers used to try to pull that on me.

Stone said that, "Hitler did far more damage to the Russians than the Jewish people, 25 or 30 [million killed]."

Oh, well, then the Jewish people should feel good about only losing a few million people? What kind of moral relativism BS is this?

The Sunday Times interviewer then asked why there was such a focus on the Holocaust.

Maybe because it was horrific? Maybe because the human race needs periodic reminding of the horrors of rampant fascism and imposed socialism lest we repeat the sins of the past?

The director, who recently met with Iranian President Ahmadinejad, also slammed the U.S. policy toward Iran as "horrible."

Awww, I feel all knotted up inside. I'm sure if we just gave Ahmadinejad a big hug and some nuclear technology he'd play nice. ;-/

"Iran isn't necessarily the good guy," said Stone. "[B]ut we don't know the full story!"

Only thing he said I agree with. I'm sure if we knew the full story it would be much worse.

Someone should remind this booger eating moron (stone) that until Hitler turned on Stalin, the American left were against America entering WWII. It wasn't until Hitler attacked the USSR that the left decided that Hitler was a "bad guy."

I wonder what stone is going to say about Stalin and his starvation of the Ukraine. Or Mao's murder of many tens of millions of people.

The guy must be suffering some sort of degenerative brain disease, and it seems to be getting worse and worse.

When I read the novel, some years ago but later in life, I couldn't escape the impression that the voice of Victor Frankenstein was the voice of Mary Shelley herself. The whole thing was just insanely Freudian. Don't get me going. So, fiction yeah, but it does have a grip on us.

Oliver Stone is an anti-Semetic scumbag, even though his mother was Jewish, IIRC.

I don’t dispute that, but those deaths were collateral damage from invading Russia. In contrast, Hitler was specifically trying to systematically exterminate the Jews as a people. Perhaps (had he won) he would have gotten around to the Slavs and other peoples. But he went for the Jews first.

Exactly... the only real difference between NAZI Germany and the USSR was that NAZI Germany had a nationalist socialist bent, with racial supremacy as the basis, while the USSR had a global socialist bent. But both were 2 sides of the same coin, and capable of the same inhuman acts of brutality.
