Oliver Stone: Obama is a Snake and We Have To Turn on Him!

…for his role in National Security Agency spying programs that have become, he said, more about silencing protestors than finding terrorists.

Film director Oliver Stone—who has made no secret of his liberal political views—called President Barack Obama a "snake" for his role in National Security Agency spying programs that have become, he said, more about silencing protestors than finding terrorists. "Obama is a snake," Stone told an audience in Tokyo on Monday. "He's a snake. And we have to turn on him." "The Boston Marathon, they were so busy tracking down potential protestors...that they missed the bombers," Stone told the Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan. "It's never about terrorists, it always becomes about the way J. Edgar Hoover did it; he brought all the weight of government to bear against protestors. He didn't like protestors. He thought they were left-wing communists. He never could find the proof, but by the time the Vietnam War came around, as you know, 500,000 people were on the list, and they were being eavesdropped on. And where are we now? Same place."

Stone said that admitted NSA leaker Edward Snowden "is a hero to me. He sacrificed his well-being for the good of us all" and that Russia's Vladimir Putin did the right thing by granting Snowden asylum, according to PressTV.

"I'm proud of him for doing it," Stone said of Putin and Russia. "We need more countries to stand up to the U.S."

Stone also called Snowden a hero last month and said it's "a disgrace that Obama is more concerned with hunting him down Snowden than reforming these George Bush-style eavesdropping techniques."

Last summer in the lead up to the 2012 Republican National Convention, Stone said he'd vote for Ron Paul over Obama if Paul secured the GOP nomination. Stone suggested that Paul was the "only one" who's "saying anything intelligent about the future of the world."

Relations between Russia and the U.S. have been frosty since the Snowden asylum decision, with Obama abruptly canceling a meeting with Putin, which was taken as a snub.

I wouldn't be surprised a bad accident eventually happens to him

Although I hate the idea, I wouldn't be surprised a bad accident eventually happens to Oliver within just months or a year, after this beginning of his N-th dissent... hey, it's ObaMARX times today, ya know - not quite the same playground as in the 80s or 90s...

or, who knows, a huge scandal surfaces up to (try to) discredit him vs. the state and "US interests" or "National Security" or "Financial Morality" (or etc, insert here), and before an amazed, staring, "public opinion"...

Ya know, for just a couple weeks, just the time necessary for a definitive burial of his voice.

Liberals will never

Liberals will never understand that when big government exists, tyranny is inevitable. They hate the government on one hand and love it on the other.

You can't have it both ways, Oliver.

the disconnect

boggles my mind.

If not done yet, you may want to fast forward to mark 1 hr 07 mins and view at least for the next 10 mins, up to mark 1 hr 17 mins or so, if not until the end.

Quite edifying, after one has looked out of their own windows...

Share, spread far and wide.

You're safe.

If it's a 1959 and stayed unmodified re: the driving controls, you and your buyer are safe.
