CULTURAL UPDATE

OLIVER STONE NEW PROJECT TO PUT HITLER & STALIN "IN CONTEXT"




Clueless Hollywood Twit



This is beautiful - Hollywood salon darling Oliver Stone, in his own words:

". . . Hitler is an easy scapegoat throughout history and its been used cheaply. He's the product of a series of actions. It's cause and effect . . . People in America don't know the connection between WWI and WWII . . ."


Speak for yourself, Wing Nut.


". . . I've been able to walk in Stalin's shoes and Hitler's shoes to understand their point of view. We're going to educate our minds and liberalize them and broaden them. We want to move beyond opinions . . ."


Here's where the inevitable America-hating begins:


". . . Go into the funding of the Nazi party. How many American corporations were involved, from GM through IBM. Hitler is just a man who could have easily been assassinated . . ."


Am I the only one who senses the irony here? This is the SAME GUY who throws the war criminal label out there in making his "W" movie about George W. Bush . . . but it's OKAY to:

". . . walk in Stalin's shoes and Hitler's shoes to understand their point of view . . . to educate our minds and liberalize them (Hitler & Stalin) and broaden them. We want to move beyond opinions . . ."


LET ME SEE IF I GOT IT STRAIGHT:



Hitler & Stalin - Mass-murderers; between 12 and 25 million, respectively - "We need to understand their point of view."






George W. Bush, Decisive Wartime President

He LIBERATED MILLIONS = "War Criminal"



EARTH TO OLIVER:

When you make movies portraying American soldiers as war criminals . . . this is OPINION.

When you suggest that JFK was killed by rogue elements of the United States government . . . this is OPINION.

When myself or hundreds of millions of decent God-fearing, freedom-loving people declare Stalin and Hitler as mass-murderers and war criminals - THIS IS HISTORICAL FACT.


THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN:


Liberals have ALWAYS loved dictators.





They love their ABSOLUTE POWER.





They wish THEY had this kind of power, to change America into THEIR vision . . .

  1. "Enemy at the Gates" was a better portrayal of just the fringes of the ravages Hitler's and Stalin's policies brought about...

    Stone makes a movie about Hitler and Stalin.

    After word of mouth from the initial few spreads, it's a box office flop.

    So, they will try to recoup costs by selling it to the government to force feed our kids...

  2. People saw the motorcycle diaries and thought is was a fair portrayal of some one they knew nothign about. Che was an assassin who gloried in killing the innocent. He killed villages full of people and prisons full of people. He was a mass murdering socialpath... But, you know, people saw the motorcycle diary movie and they think they learned something.

  3. Actually, Chamberlain wasn't particularly Liberal, just very naive. A good bureaucrat, but not a good Prime Minister. Hitler, amongst friends, called him a " bourgeois capitalist dog".
    Perhaps Stone wants to rehabilitate Hitler because he's found out he was a good Socialist?

  5. Jonah Goldberg has already put Hitler and Stalin in context in his book Liberal Fascism.

  6. I read both of Hitler's books (he wrote a sequel to Mein Kampf that wasn't published because Mein Kampf wasn't selling well and the publisher didn't want to compete against their own book). He was lucid about a lot of things, less so about others, made loads of mistakes on his way to seizing power, and wasn't a nice person. Not sure how one could make a "sympathetic" movie about him. Nothing really to be sympathetic about. I can do his life story in a long paragraph.

    Hitler blamed other people for his own personal demons. Because of his demons (that he didn't think his fault) he decided to seek power to try and control imaginary threats to his idealized world. If you read his books he seems to actually believe in his imaginary threats to Germany. Initially I thought they were just a jaded way to power through scapegoating easy targets, but if you read both books he really seems to have his heart in it. That certain people wanted to destroy his precious "German Race" and such. He also had aspirations of glory. Power/Glory aspirations + Fear caused him to move towards attaining power and he eventually got to be a mostly good strong-arm type politician by trial and a LOT of error that even landed him in jail and should have landed him in the NUTHOUSE. Because Germany was in a somewhat desperate state he managed to get "true believers" among people that weren't very intelligent and were open to any answers that would maybe make bread lines go away and such and also among people that used him as a tool for their own ends. He had a bit of glory and power and then sabotaged it all because her really wasn't good at anything other than public speaking and gaining power. He was quite bad at actually doing anything with power once he got it, he just lucked into other world leaders that were as inept as him, if not more so, and he was more determined to win in the initial phases of conflict.

    The man often surprised himself with his early victories, which fed his ego, but were more often accidents and luck than anything he had planned out very well and he happened to be pretty lucky in the personnel he had to work under him BUT he also often destroyed them and their achievements in capricious impulsive fashions. Eventually that scuppered his boat. He was good at seeking and attaining power but even if you give a monkey the keys to the best F1 car, the monkey isn't going to win at Monaco, he's going to crash hard because he's still a monkey.
