Quiz – Which Knuckleheaded Know-Nothing Celebrity Said This?

Home - by - February 6, 2013 - 14:41 America/New_York - 73 Comments

If you know the answer, keep it in your breast pocket. I want genuine guesses.

This was a bonehead talking about gun control.

Washington Times

President Obama’s gun control push got some Hollywood star power at a Wednesday morning news conference at the Capitol that included appearances from actors Chris Rock, Adam Scott, and Amanda Peet — as well as XXXXXXX  who cautioned that if America does not act on the issue of gun violence, it could be headed down the road of 1940s Germany.

“We should just care for our children so much,” XXXXXX said, adding that he’s told his own children: “no guns in my house; they’re not allowed.”

“I just believe that assault weapons — they were invented for war,” he said. “They shouldn’t be on our streets here.”

“This is the kind of [turn] that happened to the great country of Germany, where the Nazis came over, created tragic things, and they had to be told off,” he continued. “And if we continue this kind of violence and accept it in our country, the rest of the world is going to take care of us in a very bad way. We should learn that we’re the greatest country because we’re all different nationalities, different religions, and we should show the rest of the world how to behave.”

!SNIP!

Astoundingly stupid.

Okay, hints. It’s a man. He’s old. He’s been stupid his entire life. (No, seriously. He thinks of himself as a thoughtful intellectual, a man of all seasons, and he has NEVER sounded lucid, even when he was younger.)

Let the guesses begin.

    This is strange that the libtards let one of their senile own off the plantation long enough to actually speak. And it’s doubly strange that the press actually printed what he said.

    They usually wait for an older conservative to be at some function and ask him questions to see if he is as senile as the old liberals. Sometimes he is and the press has a field day with it.

    And if you attack Mr. Bennett then you’ll be a hater because he’s old and defenseless.
