Oliver Stone Denounces the Tea Party


Deranged and rabidly anti-American Hollyweird honcho Oliver Stoned loves violent, authoritarian revolutionaries like Fidel Castro and Che Guevara, but the peaceful, pro-freedom revolutionaries in his own country get nothing but contempt:

To be called ignorant by someone who equates the Tea Party movement with the KKK is like being called slimy by Rahm Emanuel or David Axelrod.

One thought on “Hollyweird Scum”

  1. Stone has obviously not done his historical research on the KKK.
    I have no idea where he got the information about 100,000 KKK marching in Washington D.C. in 1923.
    Methinks the man is full of shit.
    The Tea Party today is made up of mostly Republicans with a smattering of ultra-conservatives.
    Now, to me, the blacks would be safer gravitating to a party that represents the Free Black Union rather than a Democratic party that supported the KKK.
    The election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860 ended the domination of the fragile coalition of pro-slavery southern Democrats and conciliatory northern Democrats which had existed since the days of Andrew Jackson. Instead, a new era of Republican dominance based in the industrial and agricultural north ensued. Republicans sometimes refer to their party as the “party of Lincoln” in honor of the first Republican President.
    The Yankees, who dominated New England, much of upstate New York, and much of the upper Midwest were the strongest supporters of the Republican party. This was especially true for the pietistic Congregationalists and Presbyterians among them and (during the war), the Methodists, along with Scandinavian Lutherans. The Quakers were a small tight-knit group that was heavily Republican. The liturgical churches (Roman Catholic, Episcopal, German Lutheran), by contrast, largely rejected the moralism of the Republican Party; most of their adherents voted Democratic.
    The Southern states remained mostly pro-slavery Democrats and despised Lincoln’s Republicans.
    In an 1868 newspaper interview, Nathan Bedford Forrest stated that the Klan’s primary opposition was to the Loyal Leagues, Republican state governments, people like Tennessee governor Brownlow and other carpetbaggers and scalawags. He argued that many southerners believed that blacks were voting for the Republican Party because they “were being hoodwinked” by the Loyal Leagues, an Association formed to inspire loyalty to the Union cause in the American Civil War. Ohio Republicans formed the first Union League of America (1862) to counteract the antiwar Copperheads. Leagues formed in other states to support the war effort and to revitalize the Republican Party. They also acted as social organizations, and some remain as clubs in cities such as New York and Washington.
    After the American Civil War the Ku Klux Klan carried out lynching’s of African-Americans. This was often with the unofficial support of some local and state level leaders in the American south. In the introduction to “Death Squads in Global Perspective: Murder With Deniability,” author Bruce B. Campbell describes the KKK as “one of the first proto-death squads,” which “conducted death-squad-like killings and other terrorist acts against recently freed black slaves, Republican “carpetbaggers,” and those thought to collaborate too closely with the agents of the victorious federal government engaged in “reconstructing” the recently rebellious South.” Campbell notes the difference with modern death-squads was that the Ku Klux Klan was associated with elements of a defeated state rather than the ruling Republican governmental entity. “Otherwise, in its murderous intent, links to private elite interests, and covert nature, it very closely resembles modern death squads.”
