Shockingly, the outspoken director is not a fan of the government targeting protestors
Oliver Stone got all sorts of hissy about President Barack Obama this week.
The outspoken director spouted off about politics yet again at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Japan, blasting Obama as a "snake" while decrying the government's monitoring of protestors.
"We have to get off of this terrorism thing. the problem is, we go around the world … every public protest, every demonstration against the government, whether it's civil rights, the Vietnam war, students against Iraq; these are very important protests; they grow out of the Arab Spring. It comes out of the people," Stone told the assemblage while discussing his TV miniseries "The Secret History of the United States." "But what is being targeted here is not just terrorists but those groups. in other words, anybody who protests government policies in the future — whether it's Wall Street bankers, you protest against them — you're going to be targeted as a potential threat."
Comparing the national climate under Obama to the J. Edgar Hoover era, Stone continued, "Obama is a snake. He's a snake, and we have to turn on him."
Watch Stone blast the president below. And never mind that popping sound you keep hearing — it's just Republicans' heads exploding as they try to decide whether to agree with Oliver Stone or pass up a chance to criticize Obama.
