The quote below allegedly was spoken by Oliver Stone. But it's messed up.
The way it's worded, it would appear that Stone has flipped sides and
joined the LN camp....
???I???m amazed there is any single adult left in the USA who
would not think that Lee Harvey Oswald was the one and only
assassin.??? -- Oliver Stone
The word "not" shouldn't be in that quote, IMO. I wonder if Oliver really
said it that way? Because it's very confusing the way it is phrased. It
would have been better for clarification sake if Oliver had used the word
"still" in that quote, instead of "not".
Clear thinking is not what Oliver Stone is all about.
To be fair (and for clarification)....
I was wrong. Whoever quoted Oliver Stone on that "19 Famous People"
webpage was quoting Stone totally out of context....
Upon further reflection....
As much as it might pain me, I have to admit (after reading the WHOLE
quote supplied by Ben Holmes above) that Ben is 100% correct and I was
100% wrong when I said that Oliver Stone's quote was confusing and
Stone's quote does now make perfect sense to me. And Ben's explanation IS,
indeed, an accurate one. I was mistaken, because the quote had been
truncated at the site where I first saw it. And, as Ben correctly points
out, when the entire quote is cited, then the quote (with the "Not"
included) does make sense.
In essence, Stone was saying....
***Well, gee folks, when you get all these MSM clowns telling millions of
people that Oswald acted alone, and they keep repeating that line for
weeks at a time during this 50th anniversary time period, well, then, it
would be incredible if there was *anybody* left in the USA who believed in
a conspiracy after such a media assault.***
As hard as it is to do, I feel the need to say "Thanks" to Ben Holmes for
posting the WHOLE Stone quotation, and for pointing out my error.

Beware WC defenders quoting.
But you really do need to attack Ben EVERY day just to keep your tip sharp.
