    Hitler was an easy scapegoat: Oliver Stone - UK - World - The Times of India

    Seriously,he cannot personally beleive this can he? All I can hope for is that he trying to hype his latest project and willing to take heat to promote it.Has to be the least intelligent thing Ive seen offered up for public consumption since Obama told us middle class wouldnt have to have their taxes raised.

    Stone is not incorrect in his statement. Hitler is VERY overused because he decided upon a course of action that most of the world does not agree with. If you look, however, in the history books of two very different nations there will be many people that the majority of the country considers a horrible person much like or exceding Hitler. Hitler is only used due to the fact that he is recognized by the entire world for what he did. Hitler was a visionary. Granted, his vision was not only impossible but also considered totally wrong by most cultures. But this does not change the fact that he is one of the greatest leaders in history and an extremely intelligent man. Many people could be considered worse than Hitler. He is nothing but a familiar symbol.


    Also, please do not flame me for crediting Hitler. I do not admire him or such foolish thing i merely view the point without bias.

    What exactly does Rush Limbaugh have to do with a movie about Hitler? Perhaps Oliver has some anger issues?....lol.
    Rush Limbaugh is at the forefront of people too simple to see this movie as an exploration of Hitler as a person and not some apologetic oeuvre.

    I see we have our obligatory Hitler thread going, with Hatuey trying to tie Limbaugh to Hitler.

    It's not my fault your God has made conservatives look dumber than their demographics suggest.

    Hitler killed a lot of liberals. He hated them. Rush hates liberals, too.

    I would bet that rush could be the winner in the book of world records as someone who has denounced liberals as much as he.

    Rush would not even have a show if it were not for liberals.

    It's your fault for making specious comparisons though.

    Oh he was an easy scapegoat.
    Well that makes sense.

    Was it because of the millions of people that he executed for not fitting his "perfect" Aryan human being model, or was it because of his evil mustache?

    Perhaps both?
