It’s all about “context” ...

by Andrew C. McCarthy

I’ll see your Andrew Breitbart and raise you “Jewish domination of the media”!

It turns out Shirley Sherrod isn’t the only who’s been taken out of context. Let’s not forget what they’ve done to … Adolph Hitler! So says Oliver Stone in an interview with the Times of London (subscription only) about which News Busters has the story.

America’s focus on the murder of 6 million Jews, says the director, is a product of the “Jewish domination of the media.” In his upcoming Showtime documentary series, “Secret History of America,” he hopes to put not only the Fuhrer “in context.” but Joseph Stalin as well. Sure, “Hitler was a Frankenstein,” Stone explains, ”but there was also a Dr Frankenstein. German industrialists, the Americans and the British. He had a lot of support.”

Evidently, those media-savvy Jews don’t need any context. They are ”the most powerful lobby in Washington,” filled with “hard workers,” who “stay on top of every comment.” It is thanks to them, Stone says, that ”Israel has f***** up United States foreign policy for years.”

Stone continued to show Hugo Chavez the love. When the Times correspondent attempted to consider the Venezuelan strongman’s in the context of his woeful human rights record, Stone was dismissive, contending that U.S. ally Colombia (among others) is worse. By contrast, Stone was all for more context for his new pal, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. “Iran isn’t necessarily the good guy,” said Stone, ”but we don’t know the full story!”

Can’t wait for him to tell us.
