Hollywood star Gary Oldman believes the dystopian future portrayed in his latest movie isn’t far off — and President Obama is overseeing its creation.
Mr. Oldman told the entertainment website Den of Geek that although the new movie addresses “the debate of security and safety versus liberty, and how, in the name of security, liberty has been encroached upon,” viewers don’t have to see a science-fiction movie to experience it.
Using worldwide concern over drone technology as an example, Mr. Oldman said in the report: “I live in America at the moment, in California. But you look at American politics at the moment, and it’s one mess after another, one scandal after another. I mean, it’s falling around him. The empire is crumbling.”
Mr. Oldman was indeed speaking about the president, the actor went on: “And you’ve got footage of him speaking in 2008 and 2009 talking about Bush, and how against the Executive Order he is, and how everything was going to be transparent, and now he’s doing the same thing but on steroids. It’s Bush on steroids.
