Skip to comments.Aubrey O'Day Calls Adolf Hitler and Fidel Castro 'Brilliant' Men on 'The Sean Hannity Show

Aubrey O'Day really put her foot in her mouth this time.
The former Danity Kane member dug herself into a hole Monday night in a heated debate on Fox News' "The Sean Hannity Show" when the 25-year-old singer spewed out claims that both Adolf Hitler and Fidel Castro were "brilliant" men.
"As someone who has met [Castro]... I met him and worked with him while I was in Cuba. I'm not defending his behavior, but in many instances, but I do have to say, I will 100% agree, he's an incredibly brilliant man, he has outlived tons of our Presidents," O'Day said.
When Hannity gave the pop singer a second chance to clarify her point, O'Day reiterated, "I'm sure many murderers are brilliant people."
"Was Hitler a brilliant man?" Hannity asked.
"I don't condone Hitler one ounce, but yes, he was a brilliant man," she said. "He ran a country and convinced everyone of horrible things."
In response, Hannity shook his head and cut to Greta Van Susteren. In an effort to save what dignity she has left, O'Day issued a statement to TMZ.
"Murderers and dictators generally are some of the smartest people out there - they just use their brain power for evil purposes. I don't condone any of their evil behavior, but I was asked about their intellectual firepower... and in my opinion you can't have a low IQ and wreck [sic] that much havoc on the world," O'Day said. "What Hitler succeeded in doing, was deplorable... And I hope we never see such an abusive use of power again."
Still, despite such qualifiers, some members of the Jewish community find the singer's statements unforgivable.
Rabbi Chaim Cunin of Chabad House told TMZ, "When a woman like her uses public airwaves, with access to millions of wonderful citizens of America, and calls some of the most despicable, unspeakable hatemongers of history brilliant, then something is lacking with her intelligence. This is a constant reminder of how careful we need to be when we talk about hate, because hatred is always present."
He added, "We need to make sure we are careful and that hatred doesn't rear its ugly head. I'd like for her to think about some older Holocaust survivor having that comment beamed into their home while they are enjoying the freedom that this beautiful country provides and having to listen to her disgusting comments."
Why does Hannity let these ultra-lites on his set??????
Well, you have to have something on the ball to become a mass murdering tyrannical dictator of any country...
What was her purpose being on the show anyway?
Operative word is think! Libtards do not think...they 'feel' or 'emote'.
Not her brains... I guess.
I think because you keep your friends close and your enemies closer. It is good for people to see how ridiculous these people are.
Who is this woman and why is she in Cuba with Fidel Castro?
That’s true, but this girl’s elevator only goes to the second floor.
Her only evident attribute.
Not every dummy can kill millions or purge a country of its upper and missle class and kill all of his political opponents.
I would presume because she is hot, in a trashy way.
I think I see both of her attributes...
a PETA slut
I say we take up an offering to buy her a one-way ticket to Cuba since she loves it so much.
I knew there was something funny about my bike tires.
Has she been “spanked” by “brillant men” before? Sounds like a cop out for an evil garce.
So did Ted Kennedy. Ted wasn't brilliant either.
We have a term limit on presidencies. Dictators like Castro bitterly cling to power. He handed over the office to his brother.
This article only touches on what that airhead said. She was allowed to speak first and when Sean asked about 5 year olds needing masturbation education, according to the U.N. wink, wink, she got to open up with “absolutely” and went on to say “didn’t you wish you knew about those things when you were 5”?!!! And Sean just let her go on and on and his reply was so weak.
This is the reason I rarely watch Hannity anymore. It’s all about ratings, and that’s fine for him, but it isn’t for me.
And that broad was the dumbest person I’ve heard on the boob tube in years. Oh, and that evil moron Bob Beckel was on with her too.
SCREW YOU SEAN!!! You’re NOT a great american!
A skilled propaganda team helps. One that wheatpastes up agit prop. One that seizes control of the media.
She worked with Castro while in Cuba?
What’d she do? Round up dissidents?
Rouse up dictators.
In a way, they all are brilliant. They run/ran millions of people to do their bidding. It’s hard to convince any single person to do everything you want, but these guys got millions to do it.
Hitler fell apart militarily and bit off more than he could chew, but Fidel, Kim Jong Il, and son on are amazingly good at what they do. Even Saddam was, until he also bit off more than he could chew.
The goal of the sex positive agenda is to see everyone sexually active at every age. No concept of "age appropriate behavior" and no moral judgements over sexual pairings of any type, regardless of sex, age, relation, marial status, number, or species of partner(s).
There is even a "just say YES" campaign.
Some would say instructing children to masturbate and encouraging sexual experimentation with others is corrupting a minor.
Morals have been taken out of the schools. Replaced with secular hedonism while the Socialists rise to power. Reich, Kinsey, and Feminists have sought to bring this to the world.
Free Love doesn't make one free or feel special.
In England they are pushing to encourage daily masturbation "if you CAN'T find a partner...". So by all means kids, go seek out a Friend With Benefits...
She could be talking about any evil genius: Lex Luthor, Dr. Evil, The Brain (the mouse with the big head — Pinky's pal), The Joker (Batman's Nemesis — not TOTUS), Emperor Palpatine, etc.
The evil genius vs. the stalwart hero fuels a whole genre of Hollywood films — but, that doesn't mean that we should be trying this stuff in real life.
She is not particularly attractive, and her voice is one of the most annoying sounds that I have ever heard.
“Brilliant” does not imply “moral,” “just,” “honorable,” “fair,” or any other such ethically-positive meanings.
For all I can’t stand Clinton or 0bama, they are brilliant in their deviousness.
People are getting all lathered up over nothing. Of course these people were brilliant. And charismatic. And great orators. You can’t be an average joe and seize the reins of power over all other contenders - power politics is not something just anyone is good at. Unfortunately, they used their talents to commit great atrocities. And if a just God exists, they will burn in hell for all eternity.
Anyone who watches a guest of this caliber and expects them to be anything but a trigger to stimulate their frustration deserves what they get. Hannity and O’Reilly both regularly invite idiots on their show for this very purpose, and it evidently works, as is evidenced here and in their ratings.
Who the hell is Aubrey O’Day? Never heard of her/him!
I contend that liberals mostly want everything to be anything goes sexually, because it increases their odds of getting laid. By whom, they don’t really care.
I am asking the same questions.
Oh,I’msure she has some hidden talents.
I guess many mistake the circumference of her boobs and her head for her IQ.
The woman was probably right: the Allies gave all the captured Nazi bigwigs IQ tests and Goering, who scored a respectable 143, thought Hitler was pretty bright.
But all I can make of this is that intelligence - and courage (Iron Cross First Class), and charisma - aren’t by themselves sufficient qualifiers for high office.
I hope Americans do not turn out to be as docile as the Cubans or Venezuelens when led to the slaughter.
Apparently anybody can get a recording contract....
I think the woman may be on to something here.
Now, what current American politician possesses these kinds of characteristics? If we aren't careful, future generations of Americans (if such would even exist) might put the Kenyan-American in the same class as the big "H" and the big "C"...
All of these people were political geniuses - except for Kim Jong Il. Kim inherited his position from his dad Kim Il Sung, who was the founding ruler of this particular dynasty.
Why are liberals so impressed with a dictator staying in power longer than term-limited, democratic presidents? Isn’t that a little like complimenting a pitcher’s rubber* for outlasting the pitcher?
(*That’s the marker a baseball player pitches from. Any appropriateness to the perceived homosexuality of certain liberal commentators is purely coincidental.)
The same reason Buchanan, Novack and Carlson have for being on liberals’ shows: to make the other side look stupid.
I caught that also...I must be the most brilliant, I have outlived every president since FDR died...
