Michael Jackson Called Hitler "Genius"

Michael Jackson Called Hitler

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?

    I also think that those losers should stop printing misleading headlines. MJ was a peaceful man but the headline makes it look as if he was a fan of Hilter's, sooo stupid!

    I dont think that he could of helped him because Hilter was a very troubled man but it goes to show how much of a caring and loving person Mochael Jackson was. RIP MJ!

    Michael an Hitler had something in common! most ppl loved them both one for doing good and one for bad doing!!! f*ck HITLER!!!!!! Long live Michaael Jackson!!!!

    MJ also thought Hitler was "THE DEVIL." The Rabbi was on CNN's LARRY KING last night & said so himself. It is also written in the book. MJ was NOT a fan of Hitler. Obviously, he hated him for what he did. But he was smart in a sense. People are twisting MJ's comments. GET IT RIGHT.

    THE MAN IS DEAD FOR CHRIST SAKE! Can't you people have some respect for the dead!!!? Its ridiculous!

  • Chelsea

    WTF what's going on did he really say that?

  • thainakuhn

    P.S: Words outta context are not nice at all. For christ sake,the guy is dead,let it be. Hitler was a genious O-R-A-T-O-R. Not a freakin' genious as a person. Michael beeing as angry with the violence and injustice in the world as he was,do you guys realy think he would call sick Hitler a genious? ¬¬" IQ,people. Check yours,if you believed that.

  • thainakuhn

    Michael is right.Hitler was a genious,or do you guys think that convincing people to hate and kill for a specific(completely wrong and sick in my opinion)reason,is an easy thing to do? But no one knew for sure what Hitler had.He was sick,for sure...lol I think people are mirrors of what they have lived.If you born rich with parents who doesn't 'mind' if you turn your face away of people who are less afortuned than you,you'll be like that,unless someone shows you that's not the right thing to do. If you lived an miserable life,where everything bad has happened,you'll show youself as a person who lived that way. That's what makes us different as well. MJ thought that he would make a nice shrink for Hitler. I agree. MJ lived wanting people to smile and he has made a lot of poeple do so,and i think that Hitler never did...Maybe because MJ was not there? Just imagine Hitler dancing Thriller! :D Impossible not to have fun with Thriller! ^^

    Yeah... not only is Michael Jackson dead, he called Hitler a genius orator! -_-' Sometimes, I wonder why I even go on this site. All it is is a bunch of false crap.

  • a'e

    it's easy to picture MJ with a hitler stache, when you're staring at yourself in the ceiling mirror with your own recently acquired dirty sanchez ... isn't it Noah?

  • noah

    I'm just imagining MJ with a little Hitler mustache. So cute.

  • Bob

    He wouldn't have touched anything inside of Hitler, because Hitler wasn't a little boy.

  • writertracy

    he was a genius. anyone who can affect public opinion and move people is a genius. happens daily now that we have these electronic computerized gizmos. Only one of many attacks on mankind. whole list of awful attacks by geniuses (geniusii) on planet Earth.

  • lise

    Disgusting. Stop trying to twist his words. Really manipulative headline.

  • Lita

    Nice job taking Michael Jackson's words out of context. Real nice.

  • SP

    Oh look, the media took something out of context and turned around his words. He didn't say Hitler was a genius in a good way. He said he turned people to hate. Hello? Stupid media.

  • George

    That headline is shamefully misleading. Michael said Hitler was a genius orator, not that Hitler himself was a genius. The headline gives the impression that Michael admired Hitler and his ideas, when in fact he was simply commenting on his powers of manipulation.


    Hitler was undoubtedly an amazingly gifted motivator, & an ingenious manipulator of emotions. To make the scar on history he did, you'd have to be. It's the single most tragic occurence in history. It probably would have happened without his involvement, but it's doubtful that it would have been on such a massive scale.

  • itsmelaura

    It's slightly ironic that he said he could help people, give them therapy, considering his own mental state. Love or hate him, there's no denying he was a very troubled man. I'm just gonna ignore the joke that's been presented to us about touching something inside Hitler. Sorry to be a spoilsport, :(.
