On SiriusXM’s Jim Norton & Sam Roberts show, filmmaker Oliver Stone admitted that he would be “vilified” and “attacked” if he tried to make any of his controversial films in the current totalitarian “cancel culture” that destroys art and artists that don’t conform to the sensitivities of identity politics.
“I mean, it’s just impossible. I would have had to step on so many sensitivities,” Stone declared. “You have to have some freedom to make a movie, unfortunately.
“You have to be rude. You can be bad. And you’re going to have do to these things like step on toes. Holy cow. Do you think I could have made any one of those films?” Stone mused. “I can tell you that if I made any of my films, I don’t think I’d last. I’d be vilified. I’d be attacked. Shamed. Whatever you want to call that … culture, cancel fucking culture.”
Stone complains and yet he lionized and befriended such oppressive dictators as Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez, neither of whom exactly tolerated the freedom of speech Stone has always enjoyed and profited from.
