"We did not fight back in the same way that the British fought the IRA or the Spanish government fought the Basques here. Terrorism is a manageable action. It can be lived with," said Stone.
John Kerry said something like that, and look what it got him--a big "L" on his forehead. You, Oliver, can "live with" terrorism if you so desire; I'd rather be a man about it and work to put an end to that evil. No further commentary on Stone's quote is needed.
If that last quote doesn't cinch the award for you, let's hear what Oliver thinks causes the evil of terrorism:
"That's the evil that turns its mind and ears on humanity and is able to say 'I can kill a person in the name of God or religion.' This is not a human being, this a fanatic. And I fear that fanaticism is the result of our overreaction to 9/11," said Stone.
So Islamic fanatacism and terrorism are the result of our overreaction to 9/11. Then what, exactly, caused 9/11? We hadn't overreacted to it yet! We hadn't overreacted to the Africa embassy bombings, to the USS Cole, to the Khobar Towers, to the '93 World Trade Center Bombing.
The man is obviously an America-hating idiot, or at least has a severe case of Bush Derangement Syndrome. Either way, I hearby heartily offer
