Skip to comments.Singer Tony Bennett Equates Isolated Gun Violence to Nazi Germany, Fears Foreign Invasion
Posted on 02/07/2013 9:58:25 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Tony Bennett is one of America's most popular singers but he has proven once again that talent in the arts is no predictor of intelligence.
At a Wednesday press conference, the outspoken pacifist and ardent Democrat Bennett compared isolated gun deaths in the U.S. to Nazi concentration camps and said that if America did not do something to curtail violence in this country, the other countries would take care of us in a really bad way, just like they did in World War II to the Germans. Bizarre video and story below.
In a subsequent interview with CNN, Bennett declined to defend his comments but he did not distance himself from them either. Heres what he said in full at the conference:
Its the kind of turn that happened to the great country of Germany where 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 is really going to take care of us in a really bad way.
We should learn that were the greatest country because were all different nationalities, were all different religions, and we should show the rest of the world how to behave.
Tony Bennett is apparently unaware that the Nazi party was actually created in Germany and did not come over from some other country. He also is apparently unaware that gun control laws were one of the many restrictions placed upon citizens under Nazi domination...

Yearning for Benito, eh, Tony Bennetto?
[[Singer Tony Bennett Equates Isolated Gun Violence to Nazi Germany, Fears Foreign Invasion]]
Here’s a clue Tony- Free of charge- IF we do get invaded, you’ll NEED all the guns you can get your hands on- there’sw a reason why foreign natiosn avoid attacking us you dolt- it’s precisely because we DO own firearms- Are you so anti-American that you would have us be at the mercy of foreign natiosn who attack us? Stick to singin Tony- it appears that’s al l you’re qualified to do
And I never cared much for ol' Tony's music. He's going from riches to rags in my opinion.
Bennet is a WWII vet and I’ve always enjoyed his singing.
I don’t know if he was always this stupid or it just happened as he got old, but as the article says, having a great voice doesn’t mean that you have a great mind to back it up.
Bennet’s had a few too many botox injections.
There must be something in the Kool-Aid....
Boy is HE ever screwed up in his reasoning.
He’s inhaled way too much toupee glue.
He left his brain in San Fransicko.
Youre right, Tony, its exactly like NAZI Germany. The National Socialist government outlawed guns and started confiscating them. Then the National Socialist government started killing its own people. Then the National Socialist government attacked other countries. Then we invaded and killed the National Socialists. Dont be a national socialist.
I think Tony Bennett left more than his heart in San Francisco

Tony Bennett’s ignorance was on display for all the world to see yesterday. True history shows that Hitler could have not done what he did without disarming law-abiding citizens first. Mr. leftist, Tony, should stick to music, for sure. I am a musician who loves jazz who almost bought one of his albums this week. Now, I would not touch a product of his with a ten foot pole. Everytime I would take a listen, I would be thinking of what a traitor he is to our country, the nation which has made him filthy rich just because he has a nice instrunment in his throat. Chris Rock, Tony Bennett..What hypocrites!
He will be doing a duet with the Dixie Chicks soon.
Tony Bennett is old enough to KNOW some of the history behind the NAZI Party and their “Obama style” disarmament of the German people just for starters. IGNORANCE is, however, no respecter of persons. - Remember, Tony, it’s better to be silent and thought a fool; rather than to open your mouth and REMOVE ALL DOUBT!
He’s rememberin’ all them Joooooooes crammed into those cattle cars with their semi-autos, high-capacity magazines and cases and cases of ammo.........................
Gotta feel sorry for an 80+-year-old drug addict.
Tony Bennett is still alive?
Tony’s voice was a gift given him by God.
He was given this gift to make amends for having given Tony sh*t for brains.
TB is the Patriarch of the entertainment idiots. Great voice but no brain.
The glue from his wig has impacted his brain. Give it up Bennet
“On this rock a group of teenage guerrillas carved the names of their fallen comrades who lost their lives fighting against the invaders of our country”
Even although the earthquake was over fifty years from the gold rush days, where violence and murder were common, it is still any eye opener. A bit of a ramble for which I hope to be excused, but anyway.
Disaster By The Bay.
The Lyons Press
Things eventually were a vast improvement, in that city, as wiser heads prevailed. Tony should take time to reconsider making statements like he did. The left, as always, obviously drool at this kind of rhetoric and probably do not believe a word. (laughs)
Nazi's didn't "come over" and they weren't "told off." The Nazi's were an internal movement of Germany, the National Socialist Party. They took advantage of the 1928 German gun control laws (registration), which were enacted before they came into power, and amended them in 1938, disarming Jews particularly and everyone else generally. The resulting mayhem was staggering--genocide and Word War. The body count racked up by the Nazi's and Axis allies was in the 10's of millions.
The Nazi's (the government and their party favorites) reserved arms for themselves, while disarming everyone else. Does this sound familiar? It should. This is what the American socialists want to do -- disarm everyone but themselves and their allies/minions -- transforming us into a fascist/police state, a threat to its own citizenry and the peace of the world.
We refuse to go down this path. We know where it leads. We don't care what the screwed up world thinks. The blessings of Liberty are beyond their comprehension and their poster boy.
Someone needs to acquaint Mr Bennett with that comment by Yamamoto about not invading America because there’d be a rifle behind every blade of grass.
Or by that Russian about how in the US there were just too many Coke bottles and gas stations.
Agreed. That’s why I wrote that Tony Bennetto is yearning for his Benito (Mussolini).
Is he serious? Equating the GUN OWNERS to the Nazi’s when it was the the Nazi’s who were the GUN GRABBERS???
The US GOVERNMENT is more like the Nazi’s than the public gun owners.
And many in the old Germany and Russia said “if we had only resisted sooner” (i.e. when they grabbed all the guns!)
