Oliver Stone on General Motors -- Nazi Funding




Hi folks -- my thanks to Ed Garten for this newsworthy clip:






Director Oliver Stone's upcoming Showtime documentary miniseries "Secret History of America" promises to put mass murderers such as Stalin and Hitler "in context." "Stalin, Hitler, Mao, McCarthy -- these people have been vilified pretty thoroughly by history," Stone told reporters at the Television Critics Association's semi-annual press tour in Pasadena.
"Stalin has a complete other story," Stone said. "Not to paint him as a hero, but to tell a more factual representation. He fought the German war machine more than any single person. We can't judge people as only 'bad' or 'good.' Hitler is an easy scapegoat throughout history and its been used cheaply. He's the product of a series of actions. It's cause and effect ... People in America don't know the connection between WWI and WWII ... I've been able to walk in Stalin's shoes and Hitler's shoes to understand their point of view. We're going to educate our minds and liberalize them and broaden them. We want to move beyond opinions ... Go into the funding of the Nazi party. How many American corporations were involved, from GM through IBM. Hitler is just a man who could have easily been assassinated."




NOTE THAT DURING THE PAST DECADE RESEARCHERS HAVE POURED OVER DOCUMENTS AT THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES ON THIS TOPIC, AND SEVERAL BOOKS HAVE BEEN WRITTEN ON GM AND HITLER/NAZIS. Timing is evverything here. 1939 -- Opel and the Nazis, maybe. 1941 or 1942, Opel is divorced from GM and highly unlikely. CONSPIRACY THEORIES ARE VERY HARD TO CONVINCINGLY PROVE, MR. STONE!!!!
