If almost seems a certainty that if a public figure veers off into America-bashing conspiracy theories, he’s soon going to start apologizing for our enemies. Usually, such apologetics focus on run-of-the-mill despots like Daniel Ortega, Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro, but occasionally spills over into full-blown defenses of Communism and even Islamofascism.
Rarely, however, have such self-haters shown sympathy for Adolf Hitler.
According to a smart young writer, the “man who immortalized Che Guevara is off to set the record straight and correct the right-wing’s misinformation campaign about Hitler“:
In a new documentary series titled “Secret History of America,” Stoned says, “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.”
Most of us know the man my nephew called Stoned as filmmaker/conspiracy theorist Oliver Stone. So, if we, as Stone claims, “can’t judge people as only ‘bad’ or ‘good,’” guess that lets W off the hook?
Right, so even as the Left accuses George W. Bush of killing one million Iraqis in his illegal war for oil, Bush has done nothing wrong. It’s all… America’s?… fault.
Surely, Stone’s next project will be to walk in Bush and Cheney’s shoes and understand their point of view. So, if you do want to educate your own minds, take a gander at my nephew’s column, it’s well worth your time.
