Hitler = Evil, no?

Here's one everyone can agree on - Hitler was evil. Right?  Obama with a Hitler moustache or Bush being called Bushitler is, or was crossing a line. Hitler = Evil.  Even those philosophically National Socialists would be hard pressed to defend him.  So what's the deal with Oliver Stone?

Normally I don't concern myself with the ramblings of Hollywood, but sometimes it is too ignorant to let stand.  In a nod to anti-Semite dictators past (Hitler) and present (Ahmedinejad), Oliver Stone seems to think Hitler didn't get a fair shake because of, you know, the Jews:

Stone said that, "Hitler did far more damage to the Russians than the Jewish people, 25 or 30 [million killed]."

The Sunday Times interviewer then asked why there was such a focus on the Holocaust.

"The Jewish domination of the media," responded Stone. "There's a major lobby in the United States. They are hard workers. They stay on top of every comment, the most powerful lobby in Washington. Israel has f***** up United States foreign policy for years."

The director, who recently met with Iranian President Ahmadinejad, also slammed the U.S. policy toward Iran as "horrible."

"Iran isn't necessarily the good guy," said Stone. "[B]ut we don't know the full story!"

The Scarface screenwriter had even more encouraging words for socialist Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, who Stone called "a brave, blunt, earthy" man. The director has recently been promoting his Chavez-praising documentary called "South of the Border."
Talk about being on the wrong side of everything! I imagine Stone's next 'biopic' will be a sympathetic portrayal of Satan.
