Oliver Stone: Hitler Treated Unfairly by Jewish-Controlled Media

By Jeffrey Goldberg

I know, I know, Oliver Stone (nee, sort of, Silverstein) is nuts. But he's nuts with an audience. And parts of his audience, no doubt, will be receptive to this line of anti-Semitic argument:

The 10-part documentary [which Stone is planning] will address Stalin and Hitler "in context", he says. "Hitler was a Frankenstein but there was also a Dr Frankenstein. German industrialists, the Americans and the British. He had a lot of support."

He also seeks to put his atrocities in proportion: "Hitler did far more damage to the Russians than the Jewish people, 25 or 30m."

Why such a focus on the Holocaust then? "The Jewish domination of the media," he says. "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 fucked up United States foreign policy for years."
