Michael Jackson Called Hitler “Genius”

By: Betsy Waldman / September 25, 2009

First, Aubrey O’Day praises Hitler on Fox News, and now Michael Jackson has kind words for the Nazi leader?

The King Of Pop’s close friend Rabbi Shmuley Boteach has released audio in which MJ praises Hitler as a “genius.” Boteach, who was a rabbi at Oxford University for 11 years, taped more than 30 hours of interviews with the star.

Michael told the Rabbi:

“Hitler was a genius orator. To make that many people turn and change and hate, he had to be a showman and he was.”

The Rabbi, asked Michael:

“You believe that if you had an hour with Hitler you could somehow touch something inside of him?”

Jackson, who insisted that nobody was all evil, declared:

“Absolutely. I know I could. You have to help them, give them therapy, teach them that somewhere, something in their life went wrong.”

Have your say in the comments section: Do you think MJ could have convinced Hitler to back off?
