Singer Tony Bennett brought up Nazi Germany at a press conference in Washington where he demanded gun control. TONY BENNETT: It´s the kind of turn that happened to the great country of Germany, when Nazis came over and created tragic things, and they had to be told off. And if we continue this kind of violence and accept it in our country, the rest of the world´s going to really take care of us, in a very bad way.
Comments: Stark-raving-mad old fool. Hard to believe that this man actually LIVED THROUGH this time period and is so stinking ignorant.
Observe. This is how they do it. Claim the very opposite of the truth, smear your opponent with comparisons to evil. If Bennett wasn´t on McCarthy´s list, he should have been. What an extraordinary dumbass.
I´m not too worried about Tony Bennett or any other liberal when it comes to gun control. For once I do believe that the citizens will not be suckered into the diminution of freedoms as in the past. The Tea Parties have been a way for people to effectively influence goobernment. And the effort by socialist/fascist to further restrict our freedoms will now be met with a grass roots resistance. All the celebrities and fancy entertainers’ opinions in the world will not change the desire of the many to have their freedoms restored and protected. And it is up to us to protect our freedoms from control freak goobernment officials and ‘do-gooder’ liberals.
He was on Wolf Blitzer´s show and said this outrageous statement while using his WWII experience as cover. Wolf kept bringing up that he fought in WWII as if that allows Tony to bash the USA as much as he wants. Meanwhile Tony´s son sat there and declared himself a ´Pacifist´, or as I call them ´Weaklings´.
So many years of experience, so little knowledge. The Nazis were some of the biggest proponents of gun control. So were slave owners in the south. It is easy to control or kill people if they don´t have the means to fight back.
These comments make absolutely no sense to me. Tony Bennett has his history wrong - and he is also very mixed up in his thinking. The rest of the world is "really going to take care of us," which seems to mean attack and subjugate us, unless we "show them how to behave" by imposing more gun control? What kind of sense does THAT make? None that I can tell.
I am afraid that his heart is not the only organ Tony Bennett left in San Francisco. He may indeed be manifesting signs of early dementia as some have suggested. The spectacle is more sad than anger inspiring. He really did not need to jump into this controversy. I suspect he is being used.
More liberal hyperbole. You know, I´ve got a great idea. Instead of burying our head in the sand let´s enforce our laws. A tactical squad marching shoulder to shoulder into Chicago on Saturday night would be a start. They could put a facsimile of George Washington out in front to draw their fire.
Another poor old has been sap, ready for the death panels yet Tony?- On the subject of the government stockpiling hollow point bullets, can we[collectively] find a way to pick off that ammo before they use it to pick us off.
I´m old, so I remember -- back when Valley of the Dolls came out it was rumored that the dim-witted Italian singer was modeled after Tony Bennett. The rumor was he was not just uneducated, but just plain dumb.

What makes anybody think that an entertainer with, absolutely no qualifications to speak on the subject other than his drug and alcohol induced opinion, should be regarded as a source of rational thought on gun control. Yet, the mainstream media will trot out senile, old brain dead fools, and yes, younger brain dead fools ...... Bruce Springsteen and Barbara Streisand come to mind, and expect us to be influenced by their incoherent mutterings. Sadly, however, it seems to do just that to many. Especially to other brain dead humanoids like the morons who voted for Obamaomao.
I remember, many years ago, a TV miniseries called The Holocaust. I was struck then by the desperate attempt by the leaders of the Warsaw ghetto uprising to get guns. We all know what happened, of course. It made a deep impression on me and made me understand why we need the Second Amendment. Bennett, of course, is a fool.
This December 6, 1993, article by Robert Fisk of The Independent titled, "Anti-Soviet warrior puts his army on the road to peace," is stunning to consider 20 years later. Osama bin Laden, fresh off the US-backed mujahadin´s victory over Russia in 1989, flew his men, materials and money down to Sudan, ostensibly to start public works projects.-Snip-"I am a construction engineer and an agriculturalist. If I had training camps here in Sudan, I couldn´t possibly do this job."
Scientists have found the oldest DNA evidence yet of humans’ biological history. But instead of neatly clarifying human evolution, the finding is adding new mysteries. In a paper in the journal Nature, scientists reported Wednesday that they had retrieved ancient human DNA from a fossil dating back about 400,000 years, shattering the previous record of 100,000 years. The fossil, a thigh bone found in Spain, had previously seemed to many experts to belong to a forerunner of Neanderthals. But its DNA tells a very different story. It most closely resembles DNA from an enigmatic lineage of humans known as Denisovans. Until
SPRING CITY, Pa. — Frank Schaefer gets to keep calling himself a Methodist pastor — at least for the next 30 days. The United Methodist clergyman convicted of breaking church law for officiating at his son´s same-sex wedding was suspended late Tuesday, and ordered by a jury of his fellow pastors to surrender his credentials in a month if he can´t bring himself to adhere to the laws of the church´s Book of Discipline. Schaefer said he had no intention of changing his mind about the church´s teaching on homosexuality, declaring he would perform more gay marriages if asked.
Tuscaloosa, Ala. - Alabama´s football team is steaming toward Saturday´s showdown with rival Auburn and a possible third consecutive national championship. The team has lost only two games in the past three seasons. But here in Tuscaloosa, there is one small pocket of dissatisfaction—and it´s an important one. It is located inside the home shared by Terry Saban and her husband of 42 years, Nick, the team´s head coach. The first couple of Alabama football may be standing on top of the world, but it isn't necessarily thrilled by the view. "You come to a crossroads and the expectations get so great,
Virginia State Sen. Creigh Deeds -- who was stabbed Tuesday morning in his Bath County home -- was upgraded to fair condition Tuesday afternoon. Democratic sources tell News4 that his son, Austin "Gus" Deeds, attacked him before fatally shooting himself.-snip-State police would not comment on reports that Gus Deeds was released from Bath Community Hospital Monday following a mental health evaluation performed under an emergency custody order. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported a psychiatric bed could not be found for him over a wide area of western Virginia.
Criminals take note; You´re taking a chance if you try to ply your trade in the Dodge County town of Rhine. Local law enforcement is praising townspeople for some de facto community policing, after tracking down and helping catch an armed robbery suspect. For 60-year-old Ken Lowery the commotion began around 2:30 Thursday afternoon as he stepped inside Aden´s convenience store and encountered the store clerk in distress. "The lady screamed at me and said ´I´ve been robbed, he´s got a gun, and I gave him all the money,´" Lowery recalled. Lowery says he saw the suspected gunman, identified as 24-year-old Damien Durham
The family of an abducted Louisiana woman rescued her and killed her abductor Friday, according to news reports. Bethany Arceneaux, 29, was kidnapped Wednesday by Scott Thomas, 29, as she picked their child up from daycare, police said. Police and family members in Lafayette Parish began searching for her immediately.-snip-“We did what we had to do. We did not wait for authorities. We did it our own self,” said Harold Carter, Arceneaux’s older brother.
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
