Leftist Filmmaker Oliver Stone Thinks America is WORSE THAN ISIS
Isn’t it strange how often progressives side with America’s enemies? Leftist filmmaker Oliver Stone is just the latest example.
Oliver Stone: Forget ISIS, America Is the Real Threat
Many people thought Oliver Stone’s days of rankling the establishment were over. Many people were wrong. His 2012 book and TV series, The Untold History of the United States, suggests the iconic filmmaker is renewing efforts to challenge the mainstream narrative regarding American exceptionalism, economic imperialism, and our government’s“nefarious involvement” in the Middle East.
To complete the 10-part documentary series and 750 page book, Stone collaborated with World War 2 scholar Peter Kuznick. The controversial filmmaker says that in assessing American history since the 1930s, it’s our involvement in the Middle East that really grabbed his attention.
“We’ve destabilized the entire region, created chaos. And then we blame ISIS for the chaos we have created,” Stone said.
According to Stone, the U.S. government’s destabilizing role actually goes back much further than ISIS. His new series pinpoints moments of American intrusion in the region as far back as the 1930s and follows it all the way to the CIA-backed Iranian coup in 1953, support for Afghanistan-based, anti-Soviet Union militants in the 1980s, George H.W. Bush’s Iraq invasion of 1990, and present-day efforts in Iran, Syria, and other countries.
Mr. Stone has apparently forgotten who has been president for the last seven years.
So have most people on the left.
