Oliver Stone

The only movie by Oliver Stone  I remember is Natural Born Killers which I thought was horrifyingly ugly–a crude attempt to shock people, much like his recent comments. Stone always struck me as mainly a controversialist, and his comments on Hitler and Jewish media domination are no exception. I suppose he thought it would be a great way to promote his soon-to-be-released documentary. “Any publicity is good publicity.” But it’s hard to believe he doesn’t now think that this was an unwise move. Even if you are half Jewish, you just can’t say such things. And of course now he has apologized–under a great deal of pressure.

But the apology isn’t enough. Jewish superpatriot Haim Saban called it “soooo transparently fake” and is trying to get Showtime to cancel an upcoming TV series of Stone’s by talking to Leslie Moonves, the President and CEO of CBS which is scheduled to air the series on its cable channel Showtime. Moonves is Jewish, as is Sumner Redstone who is the largest shareholder of CBS and Chairman of the Board. Ari Emanual, the Jewish superpatriot and premier Hollywood agent who has taken the lead in going after Mel Gibson, also made a call trying to get the series cancelled.

What Jewish media power? Obviously, Stone is way out of line. Even Jewish publications acknowledge the  Jews run Hollywood.

The ADL’s statement is pure Orwell:

Oliver Stone’s apology stops short and is therefore insufficient. While he now admits that Jews do not control Hollywood, the media and other industries, he ignores his assertion that Jews are ‘…the most powerful lobby in Washington’ and that ‘Israel has (expletive) up United States foreign policy.’ This is another conspiratorial anti-Semitic canard that Mr. Stone needs to repudiate.

And while he’s at it, he should declare that Benjamin Netanyahu and Avigdor Lieberman should get the Nobel Peace Prize. Maybe that would be enough to get Stone back in the graces of Hollywood media elite.

Nah.

As if it couldn’t get any more Orwellian, Andy Nowicki’s curent TOO article describes an encounter between the ADL’s Abe Foxman and a delegation from the Ukraine eager to suck up to the ADL on Holocaust-related issues. (Foxman insists that the genocide of 7 to 10 million Ukrainians supervised and advocated by Lazar Kaganovich does not rise to the level of a Holocaust, a term that should be exclusively reserved for what the Germans did to the Jews.) The Ukranians act as if Foxman has some power which means, of course, that they are anti-Semites:

Following the meeting, Shamir asks Foxman why, if anti-Semitism is so potent a force in the world today, people care so much about pleasing the ADL and its sister organizations. Dishonest Abe then shows his flair at sophistry: it’s anti-Semitic in itself, he maintains, to even think that the Jews are so powerful as to be feared, so the fact that people like this pitiful delegation of yes-men are so eager to do his bidding just shows how anti-Semitic the world has become! Once more, Shamir dryly acknowledges this “logic,” letting its absurdity speak for itself.

The whole thing reminds me of Joe Sobran’s comment on Jewish media power:

Not that the Jews are all-powerful, let alone all bad. But they are successful, and therefore powerful enough: and their power is unique in being off-limits to normal criticism even when it’s highly visible. They themselves behave as if their success were a guilty secret, and they panic, and resort to accusations, as soon as the subject is raised. Jewish control of the major media in the media age makes the enforced silence both paradoxical and paralyzing. Survival in public life requires that you know all about it, but never refer to it. A hypocritical etiquette forces us to pretend that the Jews are powerless victims; and if you don’t respect their victimhood, they’ll destroy you. It’s a phenomenal display not of wickedness, really, but of fierce ethnocentrism, a sort of furtive racial superpatriotism. (The Buchanan frenzy. Sobran’s (March):3–4.)

Sobran’s punch line is applicable here: “A hypocritical etiquette forces us to pretend that the Jews are powerless victims; and if you don’t respect their victimhood, they’ll destroy you.” Powerless people can’t destroy anyone. But Oliver Stone will soon enough find out that Jews are very powerful indeed.

    Fact: The highest prevalence of Non-Classic Adrenal Hyperplasia (the most prevalent autosomal recessive disorder of mankind – CYP21 genetic polymorphisms on C6p21) is in the Ashkenazim population (1/3 are carriers, 1/27 homozygotes). This polymorphism subtly shunts steroid metabolism and thus the HPA-Axis.

    Conjecture: This may slightly brain/behaviour-feminize males and brain/behaviour-androgenize females. All one needs is a statistically higher prevalence of shifted brain-gender dimorphism in a concentrated group (e.g. NYC where the largest white group appears to be Jewish) in order to make a stereotype highly salient. Perhaps one is seeing more human female behaviours in more Jewish males (than in other groups)?

    I hate to admit it, but the pro-Jewish, anti-European content of the movie “Up” didn’t hit me over the head until I saw it for the third time on DVD the other day.

    The antagonist character is a famous American aviator from the late 1920′s whose first name is Charles. He owns an airship called “Spirit of Adventure.” Remind you of anyone? Of course, he’s portrayed as a murderous villain.

    The protaganist, though somewhat ethnically amorphous, is named Fredricksen (a surname frequently adopted by Jewish immigrants) and the voice is done by jew Ed Asner. His sidekick is a half Asian kid.

    That hollywood would indirectly assassinate Lindbergh’s character because of his ethnic pride and criticism of jews doesn’t surprise me, but the fact that I didn’t recognize it at first does.

    Just more proof of the power Jews have which they so shamelessly and vehemently deny. Just who do these “reality deniers” think they’re fooling? Certainly not an ever-growing percentage of Jew-wise Gentiles who are sick and tired and fed up of their finger-pointing and name-calling antics (i.e. anti-Semite) and disproportionate control of virtually every area of our lives!

    Gee, I guess that makes me an anti-Semite (yawn…..) according to that uber-arrogant, very nasty, hyper-paranoid Abe Fartman from the Defamation League and others of his goyim-hating ilk.

    Stone’s best work is “World Trade Center”. The strength of the movie is that he tones down his hostility to Catholic belief systems and is even reverential in an understated way. The movie’s weakness is the strange attempt to justify the neocon invasion of Iraq. Curiously, if the film had been given the full Hollywood treatment, Nicholas Cage would have been commanding wasp and black cops instead of Hispanic ones.

    The way forward for WASPS will be reconciliation with Rome. If WASPS think they can go it alone they will be sunk. Their culture and followers are disunited and confused. Furthermore, they are intellectually too weak to survive in 21c (Ron Paul’s obession with Austrian economic theory can be embarrasing at times) and tend toward political expediency. A feature the present Pope also noted about pre-war German protestants who voted Nazi in great numbers. In pre-war Germany the minority Catholic population didn’t vote Hitler because he didn’t go to Mass on Sunday and they could therefore see the long term danger he posed for their country.

    I find it curious that Oliver Stone admits belief in the Israel Lobby’s role in involving the US in the Middle East wars, when his movie “W” was completely sterilized of any hint that Israel or its lobby may have been a factor. I thought the movie was almost a flailing attempt at damage control in the wake of the Mearshimer and Walt book, to point the finger in the direction of oil interests and defense contractors.

    Oliver Stone has weathered harsh and sustained criticism before especially with the release of JFK. Stone is an unrepentant leftist from the 60′s, not the one world ultra-liberal variety, but the revolutionary anti-capitalist variety. He’s also a combat veteran of Vietnam where he won the bronze star and used his experience to write and direct “Platoon.” He’s definitely not a wimp. We’ll soon see if he is forced to grovel before Abe (“claw fingers”) Foxman. I sincerely hope not.

    Incidentally, the 2003 book by Barr McClellan who was LBJ’s lawyer, thoroughly vindicates Stone’s take on the JFK assasination.

    Kevin, thanks for once again pointing out the schizophrenia and paranoia of the ‘people’ of the double standard. It almost constitutes a Jewish Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, if one reflects on it.

    Severus,

    I concur, twice.

    The real message of Inglorious Basterds?

    All that matters is that it was Jewish approved.

    I am not going to complain here – you guys believe what you want and you can treat all Jews as enemies, instead of accepting that as Whites, we are as vulnerable to liberalism and Universal Morality as Anglos. That’s your business, if your beliefs are to be held without question, or if you want to evolve. Whatever.

    What I want to state is this. Oliver Stein can say what he wants. No one forced him literaly, under the barrel of a gun, to recant. He did so after vocal individuals expressed their displeasure with what he said. He wasn’t dragged to a cell, and beaten. No one threatened to cut his balls off. No one took his daughter and poked her eye out. He didnt’ even get a stinking fish thrown on his car (Pelicano incident). He just got a lot of calls, and angry people.

    If he was a man, he’d have stood by what he said.

    And if you were men, you’d respect the fighting Jewish spirit, and Moones and Saban, would be worth emulating. Let them fight – and let Stein fight too. He caved in like spoiled cheesecake. Look at Mel Gibson, did he ever go around kissing ass?

    It’s probably worth keeping in mind, that Stein might just be playing a game – and laying a trap.

    If not, he’s merely a coward – and anyone saying – oh poor stein, these viscious Jews, look how nasty they are- is also a coward.

    No one is putting a barrel to your heads – and yet you whine as if you lived in the Third Reich or USSR (hence the latter is always referenced here).

    If you’re spineless, then that’s what you should be writting about. Not about how “tough” your “enemy” is.

    In Stone’s Wall Street the villain is a sleazy ethnic swindler who ridicules the old WASP establishment that his new money is displacing. The character is called Gekko, a Greek name. It was based on Ivan Boesky, who was no Greek.

    Here’s a telling article by LA Times columnist Joel Stein:
    http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-stein19-2008dec19,0,4676183.column

    The last line is also the money line:
    “But I don’t care if Americans think we’re running the news media, Hollywood, Wall Street or the government. I just care that we get to keep running them.”
