Oliver Stone: 'Jewish-Dominated Media' Prevents Hitler from Being Portrayed 'in Context' Read more: http://newsbusters.org/blogs/alana-goodman/20

Director Oliver Stone belittled the Holocaust during a shocking interview with the Sunday Times today, claiming that America's focus on the Jewish massacre was a product of the "Jewish domination of the media."

The director also defended Hitler and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and railed against the "powerful lobby" of Jews in America.

Stone said that his upcoming Showtime documentary series "Secret History of America," seeks to put Hitler and Communist dictator Joseph Stalin "in context."

"Hitler was a Frankenstein but there was also a Dr Frankenstein. German industrialists, the Americans and the British. He had a lot of support," Stone told reporter Camilla Long during the interview, which can be found behind the paywall on the Sunday Times' website.

Stone said that, "Hitler did far more damage to the Russians than the Jewish people, 25 or 30 [million killed]."

The Sunday Times interviewer then asked why there was such a focus on the Holocaust.

"The Jewish domination of the media," responded Stone. "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."

The director, who recently met with Iranian President Ahmadinejad, also slammed the U.S. policy toward Iran as "horrible."

"Iran isn't necessarily the good guy," said Stone. "But we don't know the full story!"

The Scarface screenwriter had even more encouraging words for socialist Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, who Stone called "a brave, blunt, earthy" man. The director has recently been promoting his Chavez-praising documentary called "South of the Border."

When the interviewer pointed out that Chavez has had a less-than-stellar record on human rights, Stone immediately dismissed the criticism.

"The internet's fully free [in Venezuela]," said Stone. "You can say what the hell you like. Compare it with all the other countries: Mexico, Guatemala, above all Colombia, which is a joke."

While Stone has not been as blunt about his views on Jews and the Holocaust in the past, he has been outspoken in his fondness for Chavez and his disagreements with the U.S.'s policy on Iran.

On ABC's Good Morning America on July 28, the director told anchor George Stephanopoulos that he "absolutely" believes Chavez is a good person, and claimed that there was "there's no pattern of censorship in this country [Venezuela]."

Stone also said that if the U.S. pursued sanctions against Iran, "it's going to be like North Vietnam again."

    • You really must look into it. Look for original documents, testimonies, photos. There is no doubt what so ever that Jews were systematically exterminated by the Nazis during WW2. If you can't find them let me know and then get back to me. revisionist history at it again. They claim the same stuff over and over and it's debunked. What is more likely, it actually happened or there is a worldwide conspiracy? Where did those millions of Jews go if they didn't die by the way? Why where there orders t More..

  • Oliver may sensationalize things, he did pay it fast and loose with the facts in "JFK" in order to play-up the conspiracy angle.

    But, there's no denying the disproportionate number of Jews behind the scenes in the media, movies, etc. That's not a slam on Jews, just an observation.

  • I'm not much of a holocaust revisionist, but if your going to try and put Hitler into context here are some things to look at:
    -Jewish involvement in the Russian revolution and the attitudes of anti communism that this created (racism, anti semitism in many European nations were a product of marxist interpretation of equality and the large scale involvement of minorities in communist groups)
    -Popular attitudes to Jews in Germany pre-1933
    -American and British funding of Nazi Germany and other st More..

  • Oh, by the way, the six million casualty figure for the holocaust is accurate. I'm Polish - our media isn't jewish, but it reports the same figure.

    I know my nation's history quite well. Poland was a sort of safe harbour for jews before the second war, which is why there were so many. Of the 6 million jews that died, 3 million were Polish. Another 3 million non-jewish Poles died in the camps along with them - my great grandfather in Majdanek, among them. My country lost nearly 20% of its popu More..

  • The loony left secretly love the Nazis, they hate Jews (unless it's a self loathing Jew) hate capitalism, small limited constitutional government, individual liberty and self determination, align themselves with Islam and think of themselves as a chosen elite predestined to rule over the "unenlightened" masses.
    They also lend themselves to demagoguery.

  • He's a lib. They love anyone or anything that shits on the USA. They will justify any action of any enemy of the USA. Just because they've got one of their own as president doesn't mean they love this country. Their fucked up sense of loyalty is to a man(and I use that term loosely), not their country.

    Kill a couple million jews, no big deal. I mean he did more damage to Russia. So he's not so bad. But put a pair of panties on a murdering muslim insurgent's head...well we need war crimes tribu More..

  • Agree or disagree with him, he makes excellent points about Jewish domination of the retelling of WWII as if it were only Jews that suffered.
    The math is quite simple.
    Six million vs 25 million?
    If you listened to Hollywood, you'd think Nazis only ever murdered Jews and that's all WWII was all about.

    He's right as well about Hitler only being a "Frankenstein's monster." That evil little prick had A LOT of help from people we never ever hear about in the mainstream history books or mov More..
