Bernie Ecclestone: Hitler’s Number One Fan

By Wyatt Earp | July 6, 2009

Bernie EcclestoneGet this: The head of Formula One racing apparently thinks Hitler, Saddam Hussein, and all sorts of devilish dictators were just chock full of awesomeness. Sure, they had their faults – like that whole “Jews in an oven” and “live, nude rape rooms” thing – but hey, they got things done!

I guess you can’t make an administrative omelet without killing a few chickens, right? This man is either suffering from the onset of Alzheimer’s Syndrome, or he is just a jackass, plain and simple. I am leaning toward the latter.

A story like this makes me thankful that I am a NASCAR fan.

Bernie Ecclestone, the man who controls Formula One auto racing, said Friday that he preferred totalitarian regimes to democracies and praised Adolf Hitler for his ability to “get things done.”

In an outspoken interview with The Times of London, the 78-year-old British billionaire chastised contemporary politicians for their weaknesses and extolled the virtues of strong leadership.

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.

Ecclestone had no idea if Hitler wanted to exterminate the Jews or not? Is he frakkin’ kidding??

“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. (H/TFOXNews)

Don’t worry Mr. Ecclestone. If Britain stays the course, you and your fellow citizens will be ruled by Islamic Sharia Law in a few years. Let us across the pond know how that works for ya.

    This guy is nearly destroying Formula One. Maybe his comments reflect his mismanagement style.

    Mario – It’s sad, because F-1 has such a great history.

    You just have to image what kind of world the rich really live in to make a statement like that.

    Sharia Law is going to make Germany under Hitler look like it was a well run daycare center.

    What a bunch of ipocrites we are in the name of “political correct” We can’t say what you think anymore.. Of course Adolf was a good leader,so was Napoleon, some of the popes in the inquisition time, the american government in bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaqui.And the Lord for allowing all this shit going around the world.
    Well, if you think of all the great people that have done some good (and bad) around the world I would say to them , do not mention your idols,cause it will offend some one some where,and you will be an sexist,racesist,homophobic, and everything in between. I would suggest to these people to read again”if” by Ruydyard Kipling and think about it….

    Not the first offensive quotation from him:

    “You know, I’ve got one of these wonderful ideas that women should all be dressed in white like all the other domestic appliances.”

    Bernie Ecclestone, discussing Danica Patrick, the female driver who finished fourth in the 2005 Indianapolis 500 race. (Los Angeles Times, 6/21/05, p. A-18.)

    Rick – That’s putting it lightly.

    Admiral – But hey, if the trains arrive on time . . .

    Mrs. Crankipants – His mouth must be really huge to fit both feet in it.

    John D – But unlike The Producers, this isn’t that funny.

    Gil – Of course people can say what they think. They can also be called an idiot for their idiotic views. But hey, if Hitler is one of your (or Ecclestone’s) idols, more power to ya.

    Alan B – He’s either senile or stupid. The jury is still out.
