UNBELIEVABLE!!! We have another contender for the WTF comment of the year: Bernie Ecclestone, never met a dictator or a totalitarian regime he didn’t like. How could anyone say that that an individual that represented incarnate evil actually did something good?
Hitler getting things done … Maybe praising Formula One Chief Bernie Ecclestone
Just when every one thinks that Europe is tres chic, along comes the following comments from Formula One Racing Chief Bernie Ecclestone. In what was some of the most insane comments, Bernie Ecclestone actually praised Adolf Hitter for being able to get things done and Saddam Hussein for being able to control his country. Gee Bernie, Hitler got things done, really? You mean like exterminating Jews! Which begs the point, why would anyone watch or attend Formula One racing unless one is a fascist dictator or member of a Neo-Nazi organization? Because making the trains run takes precedent over being a rational and sane human being.
Ecclestone said: “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.

Yeah, Hitler getting the job done I guess, how sick!
“In the end he got lost, so he wasn’t a very good dictator because either he had all these things and knew what was going on and insisted, or he just went along with it … so either way he wasn’t a dictator.” He also criticized democracy, claiming that “it hasn’t done a lot of good for many countries — including this one [Britain].” Instead, Ecclestone endorsed the concept of a government based on tyranny. “Politicians are too worried about elections,” he said. “We did a terrible thing when we supported the idea of getting rid of Saddam Hussein. He was the only one who could control that country.
There are now calls for Bernie Ecclestone to step down over his pro-Nazi comments from The World Jewish Congress. Ecclestone further went on to imply that Americans are ignorant as “they” probably thought Bosnia was a town in Miami. Then states people are starving in Africa and we sit back and do nothing. Earth to moron, ever think that the reason why people are starving in Africa is because of the “Totalitarian Regimes” that you so embrace!
“It was the same [with the Taliban in Afghanistan]. We move into countries and we have no idea of the culture. The Americans probably thought Bosnia was a town in Miami. There are people starving in Africa and we sit back and do nothing but we get involved in things we should leave alone.”
