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.

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.

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.

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.

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.”

The three hosts, two men in dark suits flanking a woman in a blue dress, sat on a mustard-colored couch in front of a cheery seasonal backdrop: a lit-up tree, silver-painted twigs, mounds of tinsel, blue and red swatches of fabric, and, here and there, multicolored towers of blown glass with tapering points that made them look surprisingly like minarets. Somber because a terrible thing had happened just four days earlier, in an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.

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."

Baffling 400,000-Year-Old

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.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December

At a press conference to push legislation to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) criticized industrialists David and Charles Koch, calling them “shadow billionaires” who use their wealth to “rig our political system.” Reid’s sharp comments come on a day when the Wall Street Journal published a commentary written by Charles Koch, in which he described the brothers’ decision to get involved in politics to preserve the individual freedom and free markets that he said are the pillars of the American republic. “These two men are a pair of shadow billionaires spending

Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official

Washington - The company leading the legal challenge against birth control coverage under the new health care law offers its workers a retirement plan that includes investments in companies making contraceptive and abortion drugs. Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. has a 401(k) plan featuring several mutual funds investing in pharmaceutical firms that produce intrauterine birth control devices, emergency contraceptive pills and drugs used in abortion procedures, according to Labor Department documents and a review of fund portfolios.
