The useful idiot doesn’t fall far from the tree

Like father, like son: Oliver Stone’s Son, Defender of Ahmadinejad, Converts to Islam He said criticizing the Iranian government is “like someone coming to your house and saying the father shouldn’t hit the kids,” he said. “Who are we to tell them how to rule their country?” So it’s a bad thing to intervene when a father hits the kids? I’m sure Sean Stone didn’t intend it, but he’s right in casting Ahmadinejad and the Iranian regime as abusive parents.

Oliver Stone’s next conspiracy: Israel killed Neda

Hugo’s lickspittle (my new favorite word) unleashed: Referring to the alleged influence of the powerful Jewish lobby on U.S. foreign policy, Stone said that Israel had distorted “United States foreign policy for years,” adding he felt U.S. policy toward Iran was “horrible.” “Iran isn’t necessarily the good guy,” Stone said, insisting that Americans did not “know the full story.” Stone’s comments to the Sunday times echo pervious remarks by the Hollywood director, regarding what he conceives as the distorted view of figures such as Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin in U.S. media.

Not that it matters to these useless idiots, but here’s a copy…

21st century authoritarianism

The useful idiots cheering Hugo Chavez’s permanent takeover of Venezuela know not of what they speak. Or maybe they concur with Chavez’s assessment of Zimbabwe’s brutal dictator Robert Mugabe: “I give you a replica of liberator Simón BolÍvar’s sword . . . For you who, like BolÍvar, are and will always be a true freedom fighter [who] continues, alongside his people, to confront the pretensions of new imperialists.” Perhaps they have no problem with Chavez’s cronies profiting from the country’s socialist revolution: One of them even drove a Porsche Boxster with a bumper sticker promoting “21st Century Socialism.” I suppose they agree…
