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” Bennett
compared gun rights activists to Nazis and said that if the United
States did not do something to curtail violence in this country, the
rest of the world would “take care of us in a really bad way,” just like
they did in World War II to Germany.
In a subsequent interview with CNN, Bennett declined to defend his comments but he did not distance himself from them either.
