Oliver Stone says President Obama not interesting enough to warrant a film

Hollywood likes to make movies about former presidents, and Oliver Stone has been a part of projects about President George W. Bush, President Ronald Reagan, President Richard Nixon, and President John F. Kennedy. So should audiences expect to see Stone make a movie about our current commander-in-chief? Based on a recent interview with Dan Rather, the answer appears to be a resounding NO.

Watch a snippet of the interview below:

This is not the first time Stone has spoken out against President Obama. In August, Stone called the President “a snake” in reference to the NSA spying program. “He’s a snake,” Stone said. “And we have to turn on him.”

“Anybody who thought that Oliver Stone was a friend of Barack Obama doesn’t understand that Oliver Stone is a… communist revolutionary. He’s a guy who actually believes in this stuff. He’s a guy who believes Venezuela and Hugo Chavez is right, and he wants it done,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “If he was in Hugo Chavez’s America, he would be more wealthy. People like this and Michael Moore, they don’t like the competition. They don’t like it. I mean look at Michael Moore is always saying, you know, ‘You can’t make it.’ You made it!”

    What’s wrong with being a socialist revolutionary? What’s wrong with thinking Spielberg movies kinda suck? Am I missing something? Aren’t we supposed to have the freedom to believe and dislike whatever we want, even if it goes against your archaic ideas? But, no, you say. American freedom is only freedom to impose Capitalism, the most slaving/exploiting economic system there is now in the world? We are only free to impose exceptionalist ideals? Because we can’t fathom other countries being exceptional, when there obviously are? We all are free to be as loony as you all guys are, right? Yey! Freedom! Suck it and let me shove my freedom down your throat!

    By the way: Why can’t I skip the Samung Galaxy moronic ad?

    Fiine Tapestry……..what a dolt. Name a Communist regime that has been a successful economic model….China doesn’t count because their success is the result of embracing capitalist ides for commerce. As the failures of Communism/Socialism expanded westerly they engulfed the middle European (Iron Curtain) countries until the U.S.S.R. and their Communism collapsed outright. As the sentiment moved further West, Europe began to sink in a morass of debt and default and disaster nearly throughout. The tide is moving this way and the consequence economically are beginning to claim it new victims.

    Of course the exceptions to this are places like the Korean peninsula where you can again take a straight edge and draw a horizontal line across it midway and see the difference in the economies and the starvation of the people between the northern Communism and the southern Capitalism.

    If you take a walk back Post War Germany you can now draw a line vertically and divide the country in half with Capitalism west of the line and the Communists on the east half of the country. Total economic devastation in the East and total prosperity in the West, except of course a little spot in the East among the eastern economic devastation where there was a city that you could also divide vertically where the Western and Capitalist part of the city thrived economically while the Eastern part was total economic devastation UNTIL the walls came down and all moved to Capitalism and are combined nearly the only prosperous country in Europe.

    Next move to the Americas and look at the nearby Communist experiment in Cuba merely 90 miles off the shore of the Capitalist U.S.A. The Cubans are in a desperate economic condition while the United States with its capitalism became the most successful economy in he history of man.

    Do I need to discuss South America where the most prosperous country on the Continent (Venezuela) has become an economic mess under the gung ho brain dead mantra of the leftist like Mr. Tapestry.

    You need to go to school and learn some economics, at least Economic History, before you start blathering this left wing nonsense Mr.Tapetry. Sell your blather in your leftie circles of losers and mal contents while we do the heavy lifting to cover your ass in this county.

    The great fallacy in your little biased genealogy here, is that in all those cases the social experiments in which Socialist systems have been tried and failed there have been sufficient sabotaging (be it from authoritarian or Communist ideologies, or from Capitalist states themselves). You are ready to give up an idea based on radical political affiliations, on fanatic nationalist devotions. Look at you go with the insults and the savage attacks… just because someone doesn’t agree with your absolutist view of a world in crisis, this last part due in great part to our incapacity to go beyond Capitalism, and yes, beyond Socialism and Communism, to reconsider the problems of our world without this anti-communist, anti-socialist diehard position. But I bet this exhortation will just pass through your ears without registering an ounce of reflexive thought.

    The current socialist mindset seems to demand American freedom have a requirement to impose socialism on ourselves. As we refuse to impose the current socialist utopian hogwash on ourselves, we are accused of not allowing socialists to enjoy the same American freedom we demand for ourselves.
    Socialist dogma failed long ago. The present socialist leaders are the socialist !% fruitlessly attempting the convince our America, that is aware of their tactics, that socialism takes from the rich and gives to the poor. The only true believers of that lie are those belonging to the cult of “I Refuse to Look at Truth.”
    The socialist 1%, in my poor opinion, have no plan of any kind that will redistribute the wealth of socialism’s 1% to the masses, poor, needy, sick, or otherwise out of pocket Progressive collective in waiting.
    So far, the only discernible 1%ers plan will maintain the wealth of the socialist 1%, while reducing the 99% to a common collective poverty. That the two classes are forming under the present Progressive bunch in office is difficult to deny. I suggest the socialist waiting for manna from socialism, blink their eyes, get out of the cult of “I Refuse to Look At The truth” and take a good look at truth. Anyone can see it.

    FineTapestry, who are you to accuse someone of not being able to go beyond ideology to form favorable opinion of your ideology?
    You say Socialism and Communism were sabotaged. They are the most self protected of any regimes found on Earth. They forced their own people to remain untouched by outside ideas. The iron curtain, Berlin Wall, the gulags, Stalin murdered 40 thousand of his own military officers, Mao Tse Dong murdered 70 million of his own Chinese citizens. All of the “Marxist” nations were xenophobic to the hilt. If they were sabotaged, it was done internally by their own victims.
    Since they were also world conquering tyrants, you must consider outside events used to protect ourselves from those tyrants as acts of self preservation. Or, are you calling those acts sabotage?

    The posters below did just fine in showing how big of an idiot you are to call capitalism exploitative. Are you a Communist? Humor me on if you think Communism is better than Capitalism…but…I’ll talk to you about the first part of your post here. You did actually have a point in your crazy rant. It IS okay to hate Spielberg’s movies, even though he’s made some masterpieces in my opinion. We are, as you say free to have our opinions. Under Communist regimes you can’t have an anti-communist opinion. Are you familiar with the writings of Alexander Solzhenitzyn? I reference him here alot. Read his works, you will change your opinion. He served his country well as an artillery captain. He was jailed to hard labor for 8 years for the simple act of criticizing his country’s leader. A spoiled rotten moron like you has the right to criticize people like George W. Bush without going to jail…under what economic system??? Oh yeah, capitalism. The funny thing is your total lack of tolerance for us Conservatives and our opinions while saying we have no tolerance.

    Yeah, you said it. There have been authoritarian regimes that have given socialism a bad name. I really don’t care much about communism, as it refers historically to a complete state ideology (authoritarian). Socialism, on the other hand, can actually be conceived as capitalism-compatible. To put it another way, a fair play version of capitalism is socialism-compatible… But don’t fuzz, I know you people just short circuit when one even suggest fairness in capitalist systems.. the Obama hate just oozes out your ears.

    Oliver Stone is not being the least bit honest with us. His calling the president too boring for a film is his clever way of saying that there is no way on God’s blue & green Earth that he can make an even semi-ACCURATE film on obama without displaying him as the criminal-in-chief that he is. UNLESS that is, he ignored all the scandals, Constitution-trampling, Bill of Rights-snubbing, and daily abuses of power, in which case the film would clock in at a non-epic 11 minutes.

    How can anyone truly call obama boring?!? Personally, I wait with bated-breath to see what non-presidential, rank-amateur, communist-muslim, America-embarrassing, republic-killing action he takes next! How can that be boring?!? It’s disgusting. It’s criminal. And it’s all impeachable. But certainly not boring!

    And when the media is comprised of a bunch of commie sympathizing cowards who are afraid to say anything negative about our first black president for fear of being labeled racists, what you have is a situation where an unprincipled and immoral man such as obama can run roughshod over the country, and he hasn’t wasted a single minute of his presidency. It has been wall to wall wrongdoing and acts of treason. Name one genuinely good thing of significance that obama has done for our 227 year old Constitutional Republic….I dare ya!

    And WHO has come to America’s rescue to boot this over-qualified gangster out of office?!? Their names follow:

    The difference between you and BlueMN, and a “moderately successful” socialist like Van Jones is that you have not truly given up the cheap fulfillment of the radical prose for the deep satisfaction of the radical end.

    If your greatest satisfaction is to come here and try to make others angry, which is what you do whether you know it or not, how do you expect to win any converts?

    FailTroll is fail, and in your self-pity you ignore zounds of information placed before you in this very thread.

    Even Marx knew that Socialism/Communism could not come from the ground up, but had to be a change from a successful, albeit subverted, Capitalist society, because that society would be capable of building the infrastructure under which the Utopia would run – if it ever found enouhg support to reign.

    Starting from zero, there’s no such thing as communism outside of a small village, and even in that dirt-poor subsistence community there is a village elder and a witch doctor who guide the aims of planting, hunting, gathering, and making war.

    It’s amazing how you can doublethink this basic and obvious fact into something from which you claim victimhood.

    FineTapestry, how nice to see you change the subject form something you don’t understand to something else you don’t understand. The redistribution of opportunity has never existed in Marxist socialism. The redistribution of money, “Social Justice,” is a later addition imposed on Marxism by the progressives. George Bernard Shaw mentioned that socialism was nothing without the redistribution of wealth, which is where I first noticed it.
    If you can get beyond name calling to have a simple exchange of ideas, please give me the origin for your claim that socialism redistributes opportunity.

Don’t have any interest in your website, or arguing with you about Socialism being a wider field than what Marxism, Communism and Progressivism might appear to make it.

    The start from zero comment was addressed to your position on the sabotage of socialist/communist systems, which themselves couldn’t have been without starting from somewhere else and morphing from that to… whatever they became. The PAST is fact, but history is messy, and no one can see it the same because we don’t share common neuronic mapping or activation. That could be a big conversation, but I’m not interested in having it in this medium, and it seems like that statement is fair/general enough to make the point that we can be different because we haven’t another choice in that regard.

    Oliver Stone made his money in the free market, hardly an example for a socialist freeloader trying to suckle from the teat of the welfare state.

    Glenn Beck has makes up straw man arguments that are divorced from what the subjects of his attack might actually believe. Many of you are happy with that because you want your reality painted in simplistic shades of black and white.

    Why not invite Oliver Stone on your program? Rather than painting everything as an ideological chasm could you find things that you and Oliver Stone agree upon? Oliver Stone is a thoughtful and passionate believer in finding a better life not just for himself but the larger humanity. Isn’t that the same thing you claim to want?
