Skip to comments.Tony Bennett: Without Gun Control, U.S. May Turn Into Nazi Germany **Retard Alert**
Posted on 02/07/2013 6:15:59 AM PST by LucianOfSamasota
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.

Logical reduction: "We must have gun control because without it we will become very bad...like the people that advocated gun control!"
Poor old Tony is barely coherent.
Tony, you left your brain in San Francisco years ago. Nazi Germany was all about gun control.
No wonder I never became famous as a singer or musician or actor.
Despite my dashing good looks and awesome talent, I also have a brain.
It appears only the truly stupid are allowed to be stars. (Hi Barbra!)
He is well-known to be an idiot.
“I Left My Brain In San Francisco...”
I have not read a more incoherent quote in a long, long time. I have no idea what he is saying. More proof that you don’t have to be smart — or even of average intelligence — to be a good singer.
I almost misread the headline to read, "Without guns, America could turn into Nazi Germany!"
Of course, that would be correct not Bennett's real words.
Take 5 Tony.
Sorry Tony. You’re a moron. The Second Amendment has been around for many, many moons and we never turned into “Nazi Germany” before. Why don’t you treat yourself to some nice Jello and then take a nap. You idiot.
I’ve met Tony Bennett on several occasions. While he seems to be a nice guy, he is definitely not that bright. I mean, really, not bright.
Is this a joke?
I used to adore Tony’s music but since his slide into dementia, I can’t hear a note without having my blood pressure rise as I recall all the idiotic things he’s said in the last 3 years.
It’s a strange world. The media repeatedly promote the political blitherings and ditherings of absolute morons as if they should be valued, simply because the moron is famous for having been able to sing or act, either now or in the distant past.
Could we please get Tony Bennett’s insights into the most recent controversies surrounding Unified Field Theory?
Tony slept through his history classes.
Hey Tony.... Shut the hell up and eat your pudding...
The nurse will be by to change your diaper soon..
Wasn’t he once hooked on heroin?
White is black and up is down. Tony’s reeducation is complete.
America would then look more like Nazi Germany.
I think you got it backwards you crazy old man.
The media will regurgitate leftist swill from any famous moron if it suits their agenda. It doesn’t even need to be coherent, although what leftist idea is. Likewise, they conveniently ignore conservative celebrities.
“Ive met Tony Bennett on several occasions. While he seems to be a nice guy, he is definitely not that bright. I mean, really, not bright.”
I mean how do these people even remember lyrics. Jeff Bridges is another one that completely took me by surprise at how flighty and out of touch with reality he is. If he has a brain, only 2% is working if that much.
Go back to singing that is all your brain can handle.
I guess he doesn’t realize the Nazis (National Socialists - just like our modern Democratic party) implemented full gun control before they put all the artists, homosexuals, jews, and others they didn’t like on trains to concentration camps where they were mercilessly killed. I have lost all respect for Tony Bennett. Old fool.
The ignorance of this man’s statement is stunning.
especially since he was alive at the time
“...Nazi’s came over and created tragic things so they had to be told off...”? World History from 1932-1945 according to Tony.
Indeed. They regurgitate Tony Bennett, who hasn't had a hit song since "For Once in My Life" rocketed up the Billboard Hot 100 all the way up to #91 in the fall of 1967, as they do Harry Belafonte, who hasn't had one since Island in the Sun faded from the charts in the early summer of 1957.
All this, coming from the same dementia-addled old fool who believes America should not have retaliated for the 9/11 attacks.
Just STFU and sing, Tony.... it’s the only remaining function your brain still has.
This cannot be a real story and headline. It is satire?
...which, according to him, were caused by us.
OLD is correct he will be 87 come summer time...
OLD is correct he will be 87 come summer time...
wow...I’m getting old also...double post!!! oh well, hope my kids tell me when to ‘shut the H E ! ! UP’
Tony’s unrealized symmetrical point is interesting, we are within one human lifetime when the most educated nation on Earth rounded up “undesirable” humans and put them in gas chambers! If that is not evidence for the need of a 30 shot clip then nothing is.
Tony Bennett is a bald artist with genital herpes, I hope he lives out his days keeping his opinions to himself, but continues to sing paisano saloon songs.
Forget it, he's rolling.
Bennett is wrong, of course. He has it exactly backwards. But I would not judge him too harshly.
Bennett served in the 63rd Infantry Division during WW II. From Wikipedia (Tony Bennett was born Anthony Benedetto):
As the German Army was pushed back to its homeland, Benedetto and his company saw bitter fighting in cold winter conditions, often hunkering down in foxholes as German 88 mm guns fired on them. At the end of March, they crossed the Rhine and entered Germany, engaging in dangerous house-to-house, town-after-town fighting to clean out German soldiers; during the first week of April, they crossed the Kocher River, and by the end of the month reached the Danube. During his time in combat, Benedetto narrowly escaped death several times. The experience made him a pacifist.
Now we know what was wrong with the Nazis: they weren't tyrannical enough!
Agreed. He did his part.
“Bennett served in the 63rd Infantry Division during WW II.”
I bet he gave them all the “what for” and “told them off” with gusto!
I don’t care about his history, he is not better than JfnKerry and his treason!
Commies supported us during WWII after Hitler invaded their beloved Soviet Union.
I used to wonder how the German citizenry could have ever let things go so far. Now I know.
Shut up and sing, Tony. And you were never a favorite of mine anyway. Ol blue eyes is still the *king*.
Hitler didn’t come to power on the promise of killing the Jews....He promised “Peace, Land, Bread”, just like the Bolsheviks did some 15 years before....and just as the modern Democratic Party does today.
Yep and that always confused me. I don’t understand why Hitler hated the communists. Tyranny is tyranny, so I don’t have a clue as to what motivated him to attack Russia...
