Formula One Boss Praises Hitler … Why???

Excerpt: By Arturo Mora
Kansas City Star

Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone is in trouble for saying good things about Adolf Hitler, which begs the question, why does anyone even go there, no matter what their point? Unless you’re a raving anti-Semite such as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, there has to be a better way to state your case.

British Jewish leaders are up in arms—actually more puzzled—as to why he found it necessary to make these remarks. Public figures often get in trouble when they try to dress up some obscure point by using Hitler as an example. It never works.

What he said, in trying to talk about strong leaders, was, “In a lot of ways, terrible to say this I suppose, but apart from the fact that Hitler got taken away and persuaded to do things that I have no idea whether he wanted to do or not, he was in the way that he could command a lot of people, able to get things done."

Seeing as Ecclestone is an obvious lunatic, I will not debate his points. ...
