Guilt by Orientation
Jamie Kirchick has just published an important article on Oliver Stone, his so-called documentary JFK Revisited, and "his three-decade slander of an innocent man—one who, not coincidentally, happened to be gay."
The New York Times said the prosecution of Clay Shaw was "one of the most disgraceful chapters in the history of American jurisprudence." It was bad enough that Jim Garrison ruined Shaw's life, but Oliver Stone victimized him a second time in JFK.
Money quote from Kirchick's article:
Even if Shaw was innocent, Stone implied in an interview with Esquire, his prosecution would have been justified. Garrison’s attempt to “force a break in the case” and thereby discredit the Warren Commission was “worth the sacrifice of one man,” he said. It was a chillingly authoritarian sentiment, and in light of how Stone would go on to produce a series of hagiographic films about dictators, including Vladimir Putin, Hugo Chávez, Fidel Castro, and former Kazakh president Nursultan Nazarbayev, a portentous one.
