    CBS-Owned Showtime’s Oliver Stone Mini-Series to Deliver Soviet Version of U.S. History


    By Brent Baker
    November 12, 2012


    Tonight, CBS-owned Showtime will debut a ten-part series: Oliver Stone’s Untold History of the United States. Ronald Radosh, in last week’s Weekly Standard, determined it offers “not an untold story, but the all-too-familiar Communist and Soviet line on America’s past as it developed in the early years of the Cold War.”


    Showtime’s plug for the series which will debut Monday nights at 8 PM EST/PST, starting November 12:

    There is a classified America we were never meant to see. From Academy Award-winning writer/director Oliver Stone, this ten-part documentary series looks back at human events that at the time went under reported, but that crucially shaped America's unique and complex history over the 20th century. From the atomic bombing of Japan to the Cold War and the fall of Communism, this in-depth, surprising, and totally riveting series demands to be watched again and again.

    In “A Story Told Before: Oliver Stone’s recycled leftist history of the United States,” Radosh dissected some of the distortions in the first four parts of the series co-written with left-wing historian Peter Kuznick:

    ...Viewers are told that World War II ended with the world sharing the hopes and dreams of progressives everywhere, led by Stalin, whose desire for continued Allied unity and peace was rebuffed by Winston Churchill and rejected by President Roosevelt’s accidental successor, Harry Truman. The viewer is never told of Soviet goals or practices, like the brutal occupation of Eastern Europe by the Red Army and the overthrow of its governments and installation of Soviet puppet regimes, except when the narrative justifies this as necessary for Soviet security. Indeed, even the earlier Nazi-Soviet Pact is justified with the Soviet propaganda line that Stalin was forced into it in order to buy time to rearm, since the Western powers refused to face up to the threat of fascism.

    awesome.will have to watch it,since it will be much more objective and will hear a much closer truth to our real history and what actually happened than what our corrupt school system has taught us. Stones movie JFK was 100 times closer to the truth on what actually did happen than what the warren commission said so this will be interesting to hear.

    thats what people are on who still think oswald killed kennedy or the mob alone did it..the pipe.:lol:

    I in facr know this american history professor who has been exhuastively reseaching the case since 1967.he has read all 26,00 volumes of the warren commission besides the report itself and has read pretty much all the 2000 plus books written on it as well as interviewed witnesses that were there that day and every person that sits in on one of his lectures,leaves believeing that Stones movie was much more closer to the truth than the warren commission.he really knows his stuff.

    I myself plan on being down there in dallas next year for their regular november in dallas conferences they have every november since it will be the 50th anniversary.

    Oliver Stone’s Untrue History: Stalin the Great Hero of WWII

    December 20, 2012

    America is a soulless, unexceptional country that has done more harm than good over the last 70 years, leftist Oliver Stone argues in the first installment of his latest documentary project.

    In Stone’s multi-part revisionist assault on modern American history, Untold History of the United States, the Communist-loving movie director argues that the U.S. lost the Second World War to the Soviet Union, our allies at the time. The Soviet Communists may have been harsh and violent, but they saved the world, not America. America was too busy getting rich building weapons of mass destruction to make the world safe for capitalism, or something along those lines, according to Stone.

    I can tell you, with 100% certainty, that Oliver Stone's movie, "JFK", is as close to the TRUTH as this country will ever get to what really happened on November 22, 1963.

    I've been researching the JFK assassination since the early 70s. It became much more than a "hobby" for me, MANY years ago.

    Oliver Stone’s Cold War Melodrama

    January 7, 2013
    By Bruce Thornton

    Oliver Stone is the mastodon of the La Brea tar pits of left-wing ideology. In his movies over the years he has recycled stale left-wing narratives with all the nuance and complexity of a Soviet-era Pravda editorial. Now he has brought his agitprop gifts to cable television in the Showtime series “The Untold History of the United States.” In episode 4, “The Cold War: 1945-50,” Stone once again tells the fossilized and duplicitous tale of America’s greed and aggression against a Soviet Union that just wanted to get along with its war-time ally.

    Those of a certain age will recognize the story Stone tells, for it was dominant among left-wingers all the way up to the day the Soviet Union collapsed into the dustbin of history, and still can be found among diehard true believers. In this rewriting of history, the Soviet Union had been a stalwart ally during World War II, bearing the brunt of the fight against Nazism and suffering 27,000,000 dead. In 1945, the possibility of continuing cooperation between the West and the Soviets was destroyed by America’s aim to use its overwhelming economic and military power to dominate the world and to destroy the socialist and communist challenges to its hegemony. Winston Churchill is one of the villains in this story. Eager as he was to maintain the British Empire, Churchill’s famous “iron curtain” speech delivered in Fulton, Missouri represented to Stone a “quantum leap in bellicosity” against the Soviets.

    Here's a scoop for ya.

    The Eastern Front is where the war was won in Europe.

    The US basically won the war in the Pacific.
