Spielberg, 25 years after 'Schindler's List,' warns against collective hate
"When collective hate organizes and gets industrialized, then genocide follows," the legendary director said.

In the wake of the mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue in October, acclaimed Hollywood director Steven Spielberg believes now, more than ever, is when people must confront the alarming rise in hateful ideologies.

Spielberg's Academy Award-winning film about the Holocaust, "Schindler's List," is returning to select theaters this week in honor of its 25th anniversary. It's a story that still resonates today, he said in an interview with "NBC Nightly News" anchor Lester Holt airing Wednesday.

"I think there is more at stake today than even back then," Spielberg said, referring to when the film was released.

Perhaps he should send a copy of this to his liberal friends in Hollyweird. *look*

Anti semitism is a real phenomena. But Mr Spielberg would be surprised to learn there are other varieties of collective hate that even his own associates might be guilty of.

Mr Spielberg would do better to address the hatred on the left, amongst his fellow-travelers.
