-- -- leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Couldn't be more clear just like the Nazis just like the Soviets he is determined to paint the entire world.
In his own dull colors of repression.
He lay had a rough blueprint for world domination and -- and rainy and film festival on Thursday.
We're Americans were in attendance as well as Europeans he is not the first dictator to try to use -- the spread -- message so.
Bar I how successful -- dictators in using film was propaganda and how vulnerable.
Is Hollywood -- let's ask -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- That's the -- there wasn't really many people that you would know I've been in the business for almost forty years I didn't recognize any of the names even recognize it.
-- stone Oliver Stone son was one prison and that was via.
And there was a couple of off does that turn up -- these kind of ads but what he did was he hijacked the festival for his own political propaganda.
No -- -- obvious surprise surprise anybody I didn't think that would happen is knots right are terribly naive.
Well it's been -- -- people have made those mistakes Beyonce Hillary's -- They've turned up at all kinds of events were -- isn't bad guys only to -- later they didn't know it didn't understand sometimes the light.
Is better than he may think -- can get away with it what they get that he'd laid out.
Well and the night even ten -- forget but even about Adolf Hitler people -- night there was a filmmaker name I can never pronouncement Leni Riefenstahl I think right good job -- a triumph of the -- always sir great tribute to Adolf Hitler.
Right a lot of people just a lot of Hollywood folks just clobbered all over the woman until we figured out what Madoff was all about.
-- one of the things is that these things provide an incredible platform.
For somebody in the past to do propaganda.
But that was before the -- before -- YouTube and Twitter.
Now it's hard to hide it's -- to get away from the cloth.
Of all let's social media and the truth will come out and come out fast and that would dictate that has a hot time of suppressing the real truth the facts so the -- the use these things.
For the big -- -- -- I I usually agree -- a lot but in this case I disagree with you Peter because you think -- -- -- Chavez for example when you think of Sean -- slobbering all over Hugo Chavez and it's saying he's the best thing since sliced bread he's wonderful all the people well.
The truth is very different from that a lot of good people are put in jail because of that red -- a dictator there.
And and he should -- -- in fact our commit did a giant says his closest friend in the Western Hemisphere is is said Chavez.
You know some people are still vulnerable in this stuff.
I think a lot of people -- vulnerable to it because the nature of the Beauty and the Beast.
But the truth is one of the great things about technology David is still the truth the real to acknowledge they say not the propaganda of the film or that that data comes soon now there's such as social media -- that cuts through all of that.
I think you can not -- here I gotta disagree with the an eye out one another example check -- -- a -- was a murderer he was one of the big executioners when Fidel Castro came in.
He was not a nice man if you really know anything about it you know he wasn't as sweet sensitive guy at all the guy -- -- kill people.
And Che Guevara is life was put on film -- a film called motorcycle diaries as early life it was a.
I don't know whether they get and I think the public has so much information now that is true that's my point I don't say that these these films are.
Elements of propaganda -- -- -- saying about the overall view now is not cluttered by only one view Hollywood it's by a mass media which is social as well as main index tool allows the audience to make up their own mind.
-- -- by the way there was a time and Hollywood got -- how bad economy is going to be when Ronald Reagan was that it is they use the actors union.
He rooted out a lot of cut the Communists are meeting you know you don't wanna sound like Joseph McCarthy and all that but the fact is that that there were a lot of Communists in the unions and Hollywood at the time.
Try to take it over Ronald Reagan really -- -- -- -- -- Well I don't know if you wrote an amount I don't know whether he's right or wrong at the -- -- -- really come down on because my the past was really something I can't really reflect and I wasn't there.
But I will say this today its hide the hide the truth there's so many people now who act as journalist and social media that you get it constantly.
Then why was motorcycle -- such -- -- in Hollywood with the -- Well I don't I hit it was a well made film as a -- But -- but it was so sorry I mean that that the distinguishing characteristic of Che Guevara is what he did after the revolution the guy was a murderer he was he was involved in implanting a system that is repressed Cubans for 5060 years.
I agree -- you but the point is -- a liberal society you're allowed to have all kinds of you know why don't have to be able embrace them yet now obviously you gotta you gotta have a free open system.
I'm I'm not for amending the First Amendment Peter go work good to see you my friend thanks for being here have a -- Super Bowl week.
