Tony Bennett: Without Gun Control,
U.S. May Turn Into Nazi Germany

Real Clear Politics, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Hermoine, 2/7/2013 9:44:52 AM

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.

Yeah, because Nazi Germany had such lax gun laws for its citizens.

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.

Correction: With Gun Control, U.S. Will Turn Into Nazi Germany

I´m convinced that the feds are preparing for conflict with the US citizens.

Why does Homeland Security need 3,000,000,000 (3 billion) hollow point bullets?

Why does the IRS need 1,000 pump action shotguns?

Why do the feds need 8,000 AR-15s?

Why does zippy say we need a civilian police force equal to the US military?

Think about it and lock n load.

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.

´´Without Gun Control, U.S. May Turn Into Nazi Germany´´, according to this senile old fool.

However, with gun control, U.S. will definitely turn into the United Soviet Socialist States of Amerikkka...

I think I´m more than happy going with the Constitution on this one and keeping my guns. But. Tony, you feel free to disarm and get rid of any of those evil security guards with guns that you may use.

Heads up to Tony. They marched the Jews off to the death camps, because the Jews had no guns. They had given them up in the mid 1930´s; they were confiscated.

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.

A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

The phone call to police was a plea to help save a family held by smugglers. But when authorities raided the south Harris County home which they believed held the woman and children Wednesday, they found 110 people imprisoned in a packed, rancid "stash house" where smugglers had locked them away pending payment for their freedom. A tipster had told authorities the night before that he was being extorted by smugglers, and feared for the safety of relatives from Central America.

He leads a company that some would consider the epitome of ruthless global capitalism. But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.

Eleven days after Journey Ann Cowart celebrated her first birthday, she was dead. The Bartow County sheriff said Monday the baby was beaten to death, allegedly at the hands of her mother and her mother’s boyfriend. And it wasn’t the first time she had been abused, Sheriff Clark Millsap said. “A fractured skull, blunt force trauma to the stomach,” Millsap said, describing Journey’s injuries. “The child had healed ribs that had previously been broken. And she also had a femur that had cracked and had already healed.”

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.
