Oliver Stone Finds Support on the HP

As I am sure those of you who have been following the news are aware, director Oliver Stone recently made some anti-Semitic comments about Jews "dominating" the media and exploiting the Holocaust to their own ends. The Huffington Post published a blog post about it by Brian Levin and also a news article which has gained about two hundred comments.

You will probably not be surprised to hear that more than a few of the HPers approached the story with the attitude of "He's right, the Jews do control America." You think I am kidding. Here is a selection of comments from the very first page at the time I read it:



I would be remiss not to tell you that there were at least as many commentators denouncing Stone and his words, but even these show you how far outside the mainstream the HP talkbackers can be.

2 comments:

  1. Anti-Semitism remains the last acceptable form of bigotry on earth.

    And its not going to vanish from the HP in the foreseeable future.

  2. Again though it doesn't shock me that insane paranoid communists are insane paranoid communists. What does is that they're so comfortable saying out loud. Soon Oliver Stone will probably 'question' whether the Holocaust occurred and he'll call for an expulsion of Jews from academia and political life as well as a special 'marker' on their clothing. All for their own protection mind you.
