Oliver Stone Apologizes For Hitler and Jewish Remarks
So is Oliver Stone channeling Dr. Josef Mengele (as depicted by Gregory Peck in "Boys From Brazil")?
Stone has issued an apology after remarks during an interview in which he said Hitler was a "scapegoat". He went on to babble, ‘Hitler did far more damage to the Russians than the Jewish people, 25 or 30m.’ Asked why he focused so much on the Holocaust, Stone said: ‘The Jewish domination of the media.‘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.’
All of this brouhaha is a clumsy attempt to promote his 10-part Showtime series, Secret History Of America. And there's no such thing as bad publicity.
Meanwhile, the very deep thinking Mr. Stone is moving on to tackle another philosophical and vital issue. Wall Street 2, for which he has been paid millions, will reveal the earth-shattering message that greed is bad.
