I’ve written about America-hater Oliver Stone’s disgusting cinematic embrace of Yasser Arafat and Hamas, “Persona Non Grata,” on HBO. I’ve criticized his suck-up to Fidel Castro, Cuba’s tyrannical dictator in “Commandante”(Stone wrote Chairman Fidel a nauseating love letter, too). And I was no fan of his Reagan effort, the phony “JFK,” or “Natural Born Killers.”
Now Stone is at it again. He’s attacking American youths’ knowledge of history (look in the mirror, Oliver), attacking President Bush, and planning to make a movie about 9/11.
One wonders whether his version of 9/11 will be a Leni Riefenstahl-esque propaganda documentary like that he made about Arafat; a phony conspiracy theory movie, like “JFK,” parading as real history; or a “Platoon”-like film in which American soldiers are either drug addicts and evil. And he’s attacking America’s kids on THEIR knowledge of history?!
