American filmmaker Oliver Stone recently slammed President Obama in front of the Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan in Tokyo for “institutionalizing” National Security Agency (NSA) spy programs, which started under President Bush.
"Anybody who protests government policies in the future, whether it's Wall Street bankers, if you protest against them, you're gonna be targeted as a potential threat," said Stone, noted The Blaze (video below).
“The Boston Marathon, they were so busy tracking down protestors, green organizations, that they missed the bombers. It’s never about terrorists. It always becomes about the way J. Edgar Hoover did it. [Hoover] brought all the weight of government to bear against protestors. He didn’t like protestors."
“...Where are we now? Same place. Obama is a snake. He’s a snake. And we have to turn on him," added the Oscar-winning director.
On the flip side, Stone praised NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden: “He sacrificed his well-being for the good of us all. I think Putin did the right thing, and I’m proud of him for doing it. We need more countries to stand up to the U.S.”
