Leftwing Icon Apologizes for Anti-Semitic Rant

The darling of the left, Oliver Stone, has apologized for his latest
anti-Semitic rant.
Filmmaker Oliver Stone apologized for remarks about the Holocaust and Jewish media influence that were criticized as being anti-Semitic.

“In trying to make a broader historical point about the range of atrocities the Germans committed against many people, I made a clumsy association about the Holocaust, for which I am sorry and I regret,” Stone said today in a statement released by his publicist, Rubenstein Communications.

The apology followed comments Stone made to the Sunday Times of London. In an interview promoting a new documentary, Stone also discussed a project in the works, “Secret History of America.” He told the Times “Hitler was a Frankenstein, but there was also a Dr. Frankenstein. German Industrialists, the Americans and the British. He had a lot of support. Hitler did far more damage to the Russians than the Jewish people.”

Stone also discussed in the article what he called “Jewish domination of the media,” and said Israel “f***** up United States foreign policy for years.
Oliver Stone, a strong supporter of Hugo Chavez and who thinks Joe Stalin was misunderstood, made his latest whacked-out comments while promoting his new documentary that tries to rationalize Hitler's atrocities.

I'm also wondering when the left will say "enough already" with this guy and tell him to take a hike. Probably about the same time that flying pigs divebomb your car on the expressway.

I've noticed a disturbing tolerance on the left these days for nut jobs like Stone. It seems like you can get away with any kind of racist hate filled speech these days as long as you are on the left side of the political spectrum.
