Hollywood Jews Who Don't Control Media Unite to Get Oliver Stone Kicked Off Showtime

oliver_stone_225.jpgTalk about no-win situations: A day after Oliver Stone apologized for contextualizing Hitler and citing "Jewish domination of the media" ("Jews obviously do not control media or any other industry," Stone said), a pair of powerful and justifiably irate Jews have gotten together to persuade Showtime to cancel Stone's upcoming documentary on the network. Does anyone else see the problem here?

According to The Wrap, billionaire mogul Haim Saban and WME kingpin Ari Emanuel personally appealed to CBS boss Leslie Moonves to yank Stone's 10-part documentary -- A Secret History of America -- from the network's sister channel. Saban also lobbied CAA co-chief Bryan Lourd to drop Stone from the agency roster -- much like Emanuel did with Mel Gibson earlier this month. In an interview, Saban called Stone's apology "transparently fake," adding, "He has been consistent in his anti-American and anti-Semitic remarks. I respect his First Amendment rights. I hope he respects mine."

Maybe, but at some point the First Amendment is going to collapse in the black hole of Hollywood logic. This whole thing about influential Jews pulling together to block the airing of a documentary -- by a guy who publicly retracted his facile anti-Semitism by acknowledging "Jews obviously do not control media or any other industry" -- is more than a little counterintuitive. We're not talking about Mel Gibson here, either, whose films are tied up in distribution limbo. Were talking about Oliver Stone, who said these things in a publicity setting and has succeeded in getting continued, massive publicity for both his accused anti-American (South of the Border) and anti-Semitic (Secret History) documentaries.

So... yeah. Be mad and be outspoken, Mr. Saban. I swear I've got your back. But maybe be a little more discreet. And maybe watch the films first? Am I missing something here?

  • How long until Stone gets sainted by the Vatican?

  • Dr. Dolly Champion says:

    Arbiet Mucht Frie!!

  • Annette says:

    There are doing EXACTLY what he said they would do!
    What a bunch of THUGS!!!

  • TurdBlossom says:

    Mel Gibson is going to love this.

  • Angela Lamar says:

    When do Native American women get an apology from society???? Jews have Influence and Wealth for the hand of cards they receive. We get beaten to a bloody pulp more than any other ethnic group of females and denied due process in both the civil court system and administrative due process, where damages are awarded to JEWS -- by JEWS-- all day long, every day.

  • Rahldo says:

    Oh no, there couldn't be any Jewish folks with power in the media. He's as good as done, now.

  • stolidog says:

    see, you should just move away or something. You're really not an asset for America.
    you, personally. not native american women as a whole.

  • Al says:

    So Jews do not dominate or control our media. Haim Saban, a Jewish billionaire media magnate, and Ari Emmanual, a Jewish super agent, calling Leslie Moonves, the jewish head of CBS, to drop Oliver Stone's upcomming series. When Mel Gibson made the Passion of Christ, Jews prevented the major movie theaters from screening the Passion. Gibson had to go through the Catholic church to get his movie released.

  • whiskey says:

    Stone said that Jewish control of the media resulted in the Holocaust being a big deal when he implied it was nothing. And that "Jewish control of the media f---'ed up American foreign policy" in the Middle East and towards Israel. Standard hard-left stuff from dictator worshippers. He also said the US and England created Hitler (a bald-faced lie).
    Should a guy like that have his own Showtime documentary on "the Secret History of America" or another documentary on the Holocaust?
    He and Mel Gibson both deserve each other.

  • HailXenu! says:

    That's not quite what Stone said.
    From The Sunday Times interview:
    His next task, the leviathan Secret History of America, tackles received versions of events in the last century, an extension, perhaps, of what he did in 1991’s JFK, when he suggested that the president’s assassination was in fact a high-level conspiracy. The 10-part documentary will address Stalin and Hitler “in context”, he says. “Hitler was a Frankenstein but there was also a Dr Frankenstein. German industrialists, the Americans and the British. He had a lot of support.”
    He also seeks to put his atrocities in proportion: “Hitler did far more damage to the Russians than the Jewish people, 25 or 30m.”
    Why such a focus on the Holocaust then? “The Jewish domination of the media,” he says. “There’s a major lobby in the United States. They are hard workers. They stay on top of every comment, the most powerful lobby in Washington. Israel has *beep* up United States foreign policy for years.”

  • Good for Stone says:

    "I’m a one-issue guy, and my issue is Israel.”
    "His greatest concern, he says, is to protect Israel, by strengthening the United States-Israel relationship. At a conference last fall in Israel, Saban described his formula. His “three ways to be influential in American politics,” he said, were: make donations to political parties, establish think tanks, and control media outlets. "

  • This entire column is fatuous. Yes, there are Jews IN the media. That doesn't mean they control it, anymore than blacks control the media because black activists got Don Imus fired. There is an enormous list of media figures who have lost their jobs for saying something bigoted, or more commonly, just impolitic, forced out by pressure groups. Do ALL these pressure groups "control" the media? Sure. _Everyone_ controls the media, contra the native American woman above. Some groups are more organized, magnifying their clout, and some comments are more outrageous and mobilize more outrage.
    The very statement that someone "controls" the media, or banks, or the government is bigoted. You don't smear entire groups or stereotype them. For one thing, all Jews don't think the same thing, have the same political leanings, care about the same issues. Saying they "control" the media suggests they do, and it's insulting and yes, bigoted.
    Ms. Native American above seems to also conclude Jews run the US Judiciary. You people need to get a grip. You _individuals_, regardless of your ethnicity or religion, need to get a grip, and start treating people and regarding them as individuals, not part of a group, and supposing beliefs and motives on them simply because of these traits. That's called identity politics, and it's exactly what's wrong with the Democrat party and the left in this country.

  • And btw, if you think I'm generalizing about a group (Dems), that IS valid. If you join a racist organization, say the KKK, it's reasonable to assume you are a racist. If you join a group that lives and breathes identity politics, then you can safely be assumed to share their beliefs. You're a self-selected group, unlike blacks or (most) Jews or gays.

  • Boo Hearne Carroll says:

    Les Moonves (CBS) is not only Jewish, he is a blood relative of Israel's first Prime Minister Ben Gurion. How many people out there know THAT?!

  • E-Nomad says:

    Jews really do control the media, though.
    Its kinda why they're going to be successful in stopping the documentary.
    1+1 = 2, people.

  • FightingChance says:

    You're right - which is why I'm proud to be a Republican. We regard everyone as individuals. Scummy, gay, minority, liberal, illegal individuals, who should be censured from everything, forever.

  • Nead Digger says:

    Mr Stone is 100% correct! The Kosher Mafia must be put down!

  • Dane Boysen says:

    This is just another outrageous example of Jewish suppression of free thought, discourse, and ideas. By the blocking of Stone's documentary, they are proving the validity of what he said in the first place.

  • Abe Goldstein says:

    Oy Vey! You scumbag goyim are all too stupid to think for yourselves, that's why we, the Chosen, the REAL Master Race, must decide what you can and cannot watch and hear in movies and on TV. We teach you how to think about your world, that your little girls need big black cocks in them and you are lowlife stupid racist rednecks if you object! Oy Vey, we are so clever we lead you by the nose like sheep to the slaughter, but don't worry little goyim, it will be a kosher slaughter!

  • Jimbo says:

    Stone has Jewish ancestry and is trying to sanitise Communism (more than 100 million of its own murdered and still counting), because it was a racially Jewish creation and the majority of its leaders in Russia, were racially Jewish.
    So the elites appear to be tearing each other apart now. This is funny stuff!

  • Jimbo says:

    Jews are funny the way they always call White people supremacists, when they are the ones who call themselves
    God's Chosen People.
    So the Jews are the original racial supremacists! LOL

  • Formerly Blackwater says:

    No, we think you're lowlife stupid racist rednecks because you write lowlife stupid racist redneck comments like the one you just wrote.
