another useful idiot

spielbergo-image-160boxart_160wOliver Stone’s valentine to Hugo Chavez is likely to conjure memories of Fred Barnes’ mash note to W. — or the Senor Spielbergo biopic, “A Burns for All Seasons.”

Regarding Chavez’s critics, Stone says, “Why do you seek out the dark side when the guy is doing good things?” Such as his embrace of Ahmadinejad, or this:

“What we are witnessing is the most comprehensive assault on free speech in Venezuela since Chávez came to power,” said José Miguel Vivanco, Americas director at Human Rights Watch. “With the exception of Cuba, Venezuela is the only country in the region that shows such flagrant disregard for universal standards of freedom of expression.”

But why would an artist like Stone care about something as trite as freedom of expression?

  1. Why does hollywood and the “progressive” left love dictators? I will never, nor was there any real reason, watch another Stone movie again. He is an ass-clown incarnate. I wish he, Spicoli and Danny Glover would just move to Venezuela if they believe it is so great.
