HUH?!: “Good Will (Smith) Towards (Fascist) Men?” – Will Smith Likes Hitler

By Debbie Schlussel
Wow. This one is surprising. I liked Will Smith and his acting. I thought he was great in “The Pursuit of Happyness” and “I Am Legend.” Now, I’ll have to keep this story–thanks to readers West Dearbornistan and Alex–in mind for all future Will Smith assessments. The guy is clearly clueless.
This is taking “Good Will (Smith) Towards Men” to the extreme:

Will Smith has stunned the world by declaring that even Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler was essentially a “good” person.
The Men In Black star, 39, is determined to see the best in people, and is convinced the former German leader did not fully understand the extent of the pain and suffering his actions would cause during his time in power in the 1930s and ’40s.
He says, “Even Hitler didn’t wake up going, ‘Let me do the most evil thing I can do today’.


Will Smith Hearts Hitler

“I think he woke up in the morning and using a twisted, backwards logic, he set out to do what he thought was ‘good’. Stuff like that just needs reprogramming.”
Hitler’s totalitarian leadership as Fuhrer during 1934 until his eventual suicide in 1945 resulted in the persecution of an estimated six million Jews in the Holocaust, and his invasion of Poland in 1939 led to the start of the Second World War.

And the total was not just the six million Jews–though they were the primary focus of the camps and the target of “The Final Solution”–but eleven million total (including the six million Jews).
I guess Will Smith never heard of an obscure book, “Mein Kampf,” which is now popular all over the Muslim world (including in Dearbornistan). It’s just a tad of evidence that Hitler didn’t just wake up in the morning with this “twisted logic.” He had a lifelong hate for Jews and others.
Um, just wondering how Smith would feel if a major movie star made the specious claim that slave-owners and racists were essentially good people who set out to do what they thought was “good stuff” and really didn’t understand the pain and harm. That they “just needed a good reprogramming”? How would Smith like it if some movie star said that the Jim Crow laws were well meant and essentially good?
As the granddaughter of Holocaust survivors and the member of a family, most of which was wiped out by the Nazis, I think I can speak for my entire family (including those who were murdered by Hitler and his henchmen) in saying that Hitler knew exactly what he was doing. And there wasn’t a single “good” intention in it. Not in the ashes of Auschwitz and Dora and Gross Rosen. And not in the human lampshades and tombstone sidewalks of the rest of Nazi Europe.
Well, now we know that the White Supremacists and Will Smith have a lot in common. Reminds me of the Dave Chappelle skit about a blind Black Klansman. Jodie Foster said Nazi filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl was “misunderstood,” when she was pushing to play the woman in a movie. Maybe, with this absurd Fresh Prince “psychoanalysis,” Will Smith is angling to play Hitler in a new biopic.
This Nazi revisionism is getting tiresome. Not to mention, extremely disturbing.
But don’t worry, this won’t hurt Smith. It’s barely gotten notice anywhere. Hollywood will continue to embrace it’s top-earning box office star. Heil, Will.

Will Smith is another unwatchable mega-star. I never understood his appeal. Anyhow, he’s now a Scientologist so we know he’s a loonytoon.

This is nothing more than atheism, as it denies objective good and evil…
Thus, all men are basically “good,” and any bad deed could not have been done with malice. Rather, the offender only needs to be cured, educated, or better understood.
Moreover, if they are repeat offenders, it is not their fault. Instead, this just shows the failure of the system.
Recognition of objective evil would require being “judgmental,” and even though this is clearly encouraged in Judaism as well as in Christianity**, our feckless cultural leaders prefer letting everyone do their thing, with predictably disastrous results.
BUT–no matter, the govt will then help you…
***Anyone who thinks Jesus is not judgmental has never read the gospels, and we are called to imitate Jesus, aren’t we??

Will, really loved the Men In Black movies, but I’m beginning to worry. You might want to bop on down to a local Church of Saint L Ron for some extra auditing. Judging from your Hitler was a “good” person comments, I would say that there’s a pesky engram banging about your reactive mind that needs to be cleared. You may want to ask for a refund.
DS, thanks for exposing these clowns.

I wonder what Hitler’s feeling was about Negroes?

Must have been those mean Jewish kids at Overbrook High School here in Philadelphia that stole the poor little black boy’s lunch money. Classic product of the Philadelphia Public School System.

Will Smith is a Scientologist. Unlike Christians, Scientologists do not believe that the nature of man is evil, i.e., man is a fallen and sinful creation

Will Smith is a movie actor. A man whose occupation is living one ruse or another. Depth of thought isn’t a strong point in that environment. In movies, you can re-shoot scenes repeatedly until it has the right flavor or hue. Be nice if life was like that, no?

Given that the article title quote doesn’t even appear in the article itself, I think I’ll give him a pass until there’s more quotes from the conversation. It reeks of purposeful hit-piece. Suggestion that Hitler was good is pretty dumb, but taking a couple of lines out of what was obviously a larger discussion about something else isn’t really fair.

You can call it atheism Debbie. I call it liberalism. Why do you think Smith is so high on Obama. I’m sure he would love Obama’s church, the United Church of Nutjobs(UCC). A church where anything goes. A church where even atheists can become members. A church where ordained minister, Barry Lynn, a former ACLU lawyer has been quoted as saying that child pornography should be legal.

WTF planet is this dope from? I can’t take anymore Hollywood wackos like him. Maybe Willie Boy Smith should get together with Mel nazi Gibson. Umm, does he not realize the Jessie Owens Olympic story? Lets just pray he doesn’t have anymore children to pass his stupidity on to.

Actually ther were 16,000,000 murdered by hitler and his cronies. The files were just finished and there was a little special on this on PBS. 6,000,000 jews,3,000,000 roma ,countless cripples and homosexuals,millions of Russians and on and on. Will was just trying to be a good guy. And besides he only has a public education and they do not teach history. Sad but true.

He appears to have been pretty seriously misquoted.

There’s a couple things to consider before we get into a big snit over this: For one, there is nothing wrong with Will Smith’s comments if taken in context. He basically said evil men wake up in the morning not thinking they are evil but doing good. Oswald killed JFK. Booth killed Lincoln. Your average garden variety serial killer murders prostitutes. They didn’t wake up saying “what evil can I do today.” No, in their warped, twisted and sick minds they thought they were doing a public service. Yes, very evil, but let’s not forget that evil people are delusional and don’t necessarily think of themselves as evil. They’re not the Penguin in a Batman movie. They are not cartoon characters who have an “evil” to-do list. Hitler, Stalin et al are evil in the purest sense, but did they think of themselves as evil? Really, let’s exercise some intellectual honesty here. The other thing to consider is in today’s many follow-up stories it appears that the set-up paragraph to Smith’s quotes says that Smith thinks Hitler — or people like him — are basically good or some such. That’s not what Smith said at all and that’s an interpretation of the writer, who either was sloppy in the writing or deliberately misinterpreted the quote.

I have to believe that those who support this administration’s goals and policies believe they are doing “good”. i.e.; It is “good” to spend billions of taxpayers dollars arm and train the Arab world in preparation for the “Final Solution” to the Israeli-Arab conflict, it’s for our own “good” that Jerusalem is divided and an armed to the teeth mega-terrorist state is established on Jewish land, that the lives of my family and those whom I love, all 5 million of them, are to be sacrificed for the “good” of the International Community and our “Allies” in the Islamic world.
If Americans do not believe that they are doing “good’ by supporting this administration, then I would have to draw the conclusion that they are conspiring to commit another genocide of the Jewish people.

Both oswald and booth planned their murders everyday for a couple of years, they gave it thought everyday, they got out of bed immediately continuing their preparation. It was number one on their list of things to do. hitler got out of bed obsessed with killing the Jews at least we know of from the time he published Mein Kamph. Today we have ten percent of islam that wakes up everyday with number one on their list of things to do is kill all the Jews and number two on their list is convert or kill the rest of us. Ten percent of a little over a billion is a little over one-hundred million. We have to realize that yes, there are those do spend every moment of their existence planning what they say they want to do. Yes, there are evil people.

GGGGGGRRRR I liked him-how can he say that?!?!

Very good post.

commonsense on December 19, 2008 at 9:42 pm

I can’t take him seriously as an actor with those ears. Oprah must be funding him.

winfrey is the wal-mart of society on December 22, 2008 at 10:01 pm

No. You completely misinterpreted the quote, on purpose I suppose- for the sake of your blog I can only guess. He’s talking about Hitler’s psychology, not excusing it, not saying that hitler was “good”, he’s saying that Hitler thought he was good. You are an incedibly ignorant person, this comment won’t be posted, I’m 100% sure, but you make me very very ashamed to be a fellow woman and american. You disgust me.
