NEW YORK -- Entertainer Harry Belafonte, one of the Bush administration's harshest critics, compared the Homeland Security Department to the Nazi Gestapo on Saturday and attacked the president as a liar.

If this is true, then why is he still here? I'd be beating it for the closest border. Jackass!

This is a very sick man. I don't doubt that he suffered from racism especially in the fifties and sixties when his career was beginning. He is to be pitied.

Those who do not know history ... To compare the Gestapo to anything short of the KGB, Stazi or MSS, is to show one's own ignorance. IF I BELIEVED (I don't) as Mr Belafonte does, I'd be hard put to say anything stronger than, "This resembles Gestapo tactics".

Hollyweird is wrapped in the lock that Nazi Germany was the nadir of human behavior and the height of inhumanity. They are wrong, except for the religious concentration on the Jews whereas the rest, SovUnion, China & Cambodia (partial list) were more ecumenical!

Mr Belafonte is a wit who has more than lost half of his marbles. This is the last statement I'll be making about him as I devoutly wish for his publicity tour to come to a screeching end ... Then again it may be keeping 'Mother Sheehan' off the pages ... hmmm choices, choices!

Harry's historical amnesia shows his ignorance.

The race argument in this day and age is so, so dead. Harry should run with Hillary.

the republican party was founded in 1854 as a civil rights party. The democrat party both north and south, fought against civil rights.

When are the republicans going to start fighting back with the truth?

Or the democrats will have a howling lynch mob by the next election.

This guy has become unhinged.

When he compares our Administration to Nazis, it also implies our men and women in uniform as well.

He has truly lost all perspective of reality.

If this is true, then why is he still here?

Because he lives like a duke in Bel Air, California, among the rich and famous.

His voice is gone. The only way he can get attention is to act out with the loonies on the fringe left. He hasn't had this much ink in 50 years.

He's loving it. He's the new Cindy Sheehan.

There is a simple response Harry can undertake: he can return home to Jamaica and never come back to the US, where he has his flat on sale in Manhattan (per Friday's Wall Street Journal) for a measly $13 million.

It sure stinks living in the U.S., doesn't it?

Sheesh.

You're absolutely right. Put him in Cuba for awhile. He can pony up to ole Fidel.

Cindy's fifteen minutes is at 14:58 or so.
