Oliver Stone in London’s Sunday Times claimed that the Holocaust is overemphasized in our culture because Jews “control the media” and that “Hitler did far more damage to the Russians than the Jewish people.”
Within hours Jewish groups picked up on his drivel and quickly called him to task on it. Stone being the media savy man he is quickly turned the spin to say that he was “In trying to make a broader historical point about the range of atrocities the Germans committed against many people, I made a clumsy association about the Holocaust, for which I am sorry and I regret,”
Oh Just what we need a so-called respected person to babble this utter trash even as an OOPS. The sad thing is the first thing out of our mouths is often, while not true, the most indicative of how we feel. I hate to say it but I am now going to think of this statement everytime I watch an Oliver Stone film.
Let’s keep this straight folks the media is controled by what we want to hear, and if the Holocaust seems overemphasized it is because it was horrendous. Stone should leave this knuckle dragging antisemetic trash talk to folks like David Duke.
