Well, Oliver Stone has done it again! This time, the famed – um, infamous – director heads to South America to glad-hand with the Neo-Marxists of South America. Stone and his film team meet with Venezuelan president, Hugo Chavez, as well as other Leftist leaders from Brazil, Paraguay, Ecuador, and Argentina. Stone seems intent on undermining the United States, its foreign policy, its freedoms, the former Bush administration, and even the major U.S. media outlets.
Stone’s prejudice against the United States is painfully evident as he glorifies all of Chavez’s accomplishments without ever calling into question any of his corrupt policies. Weaving together doctored and poorly edited sequences of news footage to further his premise that the “Bolivarian Republics” of South America have succeeded in their Utopian dream, Stone’s documentary comes off as nearly laughable and so has even been criticized by the far left press.
That said, perhaps the least laughable moments – indeed, the most foreboding and frightening moments of the movie – come near the end as one author declares his hope that this “Leftist propaganda might travel through Hispanics and into North America” and as the former president of Argentina says that he and Chavez need to think in terms of 10 successors down the line in order to perpetuate their dreams because Chavez’s presidency is “concrete evidence that we can change history.”
Christians and their fellow citizens around the world must rise up against this evil dictatorial tyranny before it’s too late! Communists like Hugo Chavez murdered about 150 million people in the last century alone. Castro’s henchman Che Guevara mused that he loved the smell of gunpowder and human flesh as he cruelly murdered young Cuban intellectuals and others. They must not be allowed to spread their poisonous ideology into other countries.
SOUTH OF THE BORDER contains some violent content, such as news footage of riots and people being shot in the streets as well as some mild language and brief use of narcotics as people eat coca leaves to ease their nausea from high altitudes. However, these mild content elements are not nearly as disturbing as the dark worldview of Oliver Stone, Hugo Chavez, their fellow Communists, and their “Utopian dream” for the United States.
