basemetal: Meh, who the hell has the kind of life that they can put it on hold for a possible three months to do a reality show?/when you go on a reality show and sling shiat//don't be surprised if you get some shiat gets on you///and you come out smelling like shiat
Spad31: Uh...Hitler was obviously a gifted speaker. Was an ass-clown who instigated terrible things, but WTF? Why would you possibly take flack for acknowledging it?
The My Little Pony Killer: Railroaded?
StopLurkListen: I can't defend what this man has to say, but we should defend his right to say it.Why should employees be subject to their employer's preferences when they are on their own time and not acting as agents of that employer?
See You Next Tuesday: Wow, I am surprised how many of you are ready to white-knight a Hitler.
Bslim: My friends, isn't this just typical? Another intelligent conservative here, railroaded by our liberal political correctness, just like Colonel Oliver North, officer Stacey Koons, and cartoon Smokespeson Joe Camel.
mjbok: See You Next Tuesday: Wow, I am surprised how many of you are ready to white-knight a Hitler.It is not white-knighting Hitler. The guy was a good speaker. That's not white-knighting.
SomeoneDumb: mjbok: See You Next Tuesday: Wow, I am surprised how many of you are ready to white-knight a Hitler.It is not white-knighting Hitler. The guy was a good speaker. That's not white-knighting.I don't know the context, but why even bring up Hitler's ability to speak? I can't see any reason to do that other than to defend the guy.
See You Next Tuesday: Wow, I am surprised how many of you are ready to white-knight a Hitler.He wrecked Europe. In the long run, you can thank him for the Middle East, too, as well as the Cold War and the arms race.But hey, he really knew how to get an audience of pissy Germans riled up. What a guy.
Brick-House: I find the fact that until they're voted out, they won't even know kind of funny. And cannot wait for their interviews.
kg2095: He was a gifted screamer. All the audio I have ever heard of him was him shouting and screaming like a mad man.
howlinmadmurphy: That Jeffery Dahmer had incredible cheek bones. And Osama bin Laden had a beautiful singing voice.
ReapTheChaos: A whole lot of ignorance in this thread. Hitler was known as a charismatic and gifted speaker who could captivate his audience, any historian will tell you this. You don't have to condone what he did to to agree that he was in fact a talented public speaker.Here's an excerpt from the Wikipedia article on Hitler.Historians have noted the hypnotic effect of his rhetoric on large audiences, and of his eyes in small groups. Kessel writes, "Overwhelmingly ... Germans speak with mystification of Hitler's 'hypnotic' appeal. The word shows up again and again; Hitler is said to have mesmerized the nation, captured them in a trance from which they could not break loose". He used his personal magnetism and an understanding of crowd psychology to his advantage while engaged in public speaking.
Waldo Pepper: Dr.Zom: I don't know if Hitler was a gifted speaker or not - I don't speak German. My Swiss girlfriend used to tell me it was mostly gibberish designed to sound smart (like Scientology).I do know Hitler was an effective and affecting speaker. His words moved people and changed the course of the world. Denying this is like denying he had a mustache.well to be honest it must not have been much of a mustache, I mean it is rarely copied these days
