Moron of the Week: Bette Midler Says GOP Rooted for Nazis (She Married One, Though–Nazi, Not GOP)

By Debbie Schlussel

One of the most annoying songs America has suffered is “Wind Beneath My Wings.” One of the most annoying anti-male chick flicks America has suffered through is “Beaches” a/k/a High Quality Gitmo Torture Material. And, now, it’s official that one of the most annoying “entertainers” (and I use that term loosely) that America has suffered through is the beast associated with both the song and the movie–Bette Midler. I cannot stand this woman, never have. She oozes arrogance and conceit and acts as if she’s America’s sexiest, smartest property. Now sentenced to a retirement gig in Vegas, Midler has taken to comparing Republicans to Nazis and pointing out that they rooted for America to lose World War II, which ain’t exactly true.


Yes, it’s true that the GOP of old was isolationist in a way that Pat Buchanan and the Rand Paulistinians and Palestinian Congressman Justin Amash wish America was today. But the mainstream Republican Party today is completely different, just as the Democrats of today are different than the Dems of Truman and Scoop Jackson and Daniel Patrick Moynihan times. If anything–and frankly, it’s an apt description–the party of Nazism today is the Democratic Party, which embraces Jew-hatred in a way that makes the worm entrails that is now Hitler jealous. So her attempt at comparing Republicans to Nazis and saying they rooted for Jews to perish is an epic failure. We know which party, today, is more likely to take up the cause of Jews and their safety and security, and it isn’t the party of donkeys and jackasses (who embrace every Jew-hating group in the rainbow).

By the way, as reader Jon Grant points out, Ms. Midler is married to a German national, probably the son of Nazis, so that would make her a Nazi sperm receptacle, not something I’d brag about if I were she. Go back to singing about your broken wings, Bette. For the record, Midler does not speak for me as a Jewish American. She’s what I call a Va-JINO (my name for female Jews In Name Only).


Outspoken actress Bette Midler took to Twitter on Wednesday to tell her 450,000 followers that Republicans actually rooted for a loss in World War II.

“GOP treats Mr. Obama the way they treated FDR in WWII. They did everything they could to ensure an Allied loss,” she said, gaining 60 retweets.

But a lot of people didn’t find her comment amusing.

“You should explain that to all the dead Republicans buried at Arlington National Cemetery,” one user replied.

“Lets be real here Midler knows as much about history as she knows about meteorology, not much, nothing,” another person said.

Earlier this month the award-winning actress docu-tweeted the weather in New York, urging people to call their elected officials about global warming.

Well, she oughta know something about “global warming,” since the globe atop her neck is full of hot air. But that’s about all she knows of that or anything else of substance.

Bette Midler, STFU juice drink candidate of the week.

Cue the theme song . . .

Sadly, that kind of “celebrity” does have followers. In a same world, the career of a has-been celebrity vomiting Antisemitism, global warming hot air would hit rock bottom instantly. However, being a self-hating Jew with no knowledge of how climate works is a sure way to reach some “celebrity” status.

So, Mrs. Midler, STFU for the rest of your decaying career. Mankind had enough of your lousy music, your Antisemitism, and your crappy scholarship of climate sciences.

It was liberal elites who rooted for the Nazis.

Blayne on July 26, 2013 at 4:28 pm

Bette Midler reached her peak, such as it was, over thirty years ago. She definitely has not gotten better with age. Bette Midler is in the same category as Barbara Streisand and Cher, namely performers who are desperately trying to stay relevant long past their respective shelf lives.

Worry01 on July 26, 2013 at 4:40 pm

    You’re lost. There are quite literally hundreds of artists that have had second and third careers in music and other arts. There are a plethora of individual artist who thought their best work was behind them only to find it in front of them. You are a negative cow, ready to give your “free milk” to anyone willing to pull on your tits. It’s time you went to butcher.

    TYBette on November 6, 2014 at 9:30 pm

I don’t know how people can say that someone who is a German national probably had a Nazi for a father. Lots of Germans were never Nazis.
I am guessing that the crap Bette Miller is spewing is loosely based on the allegations that the Bush family was involved in trade with the Nazis during the war. There are lots of other people and business firms who’s names come up in similar allegations. What Bette said is an example of how liberals, low information voters and just plain idiots, think. The flow chart of her “logic” probably went like this: Herbert Walker Bush family involved in business dealings with Nazis + members of Bush family become Republicans = Republicans are Nazis.

RT: I’m using the same logic as she is by saying that. However, while many Germans were “not Nazis” on paper, many supported the Nazi-like Jew-hatred of that time. DS

Ms. Midler should be more careful looking into the history of the Democrats vs. the Republicans. Generally during the World War II era (unfortunately with some exceptions) the Republicans did not cooperate with the Communist agenda, whereas the Communist agenda was determinative for the Democrats. As an example, the Morganthau plan was formulated by Commie Harry Dexter White.

Ms. Midler could have also looked at the Post World War II Republicans vs. Democrats. The Red Dean and Alger (oops I mean Adlai) Stevenson covered for Hiss, and the other Communists helping to lead the country during the FDR reign, and part of the Truman era.

And as is well known, portions of the New Deal were modeled after Mussolini’s Italy. This is so well known there are volumes and volumes about it. It was the Republicans in the 30s who opposed the fascist-oriented aspects of the New Deal.

Little Al on July 26, 2013 at 4:47 pm

I always confuse Bette Midler with Joy Behar, as they are true doppelgangers in all perceptable ways–or just “dopes” for short, in their particular case. Besides looking alike, their political views are also alike, and they are both submorons. (No point in insulting those morons who suffer from mental retardation that they may have no control over.)


Ralph Adamo on July 26, 2013 at 4:59 pm

What is it with these celebrities and their idiotic, leftist political spewings?

DS_ROCKS! on July 26, 2013 at 5:11 pm

    And why can’t they be composted? 😉

    Worry01 on July 26, 2013 at 5:32 pm

      Why can’t the be composted? Because compost is supposed to nourish plants, not kill them. But I get your meaning.

      Italkit on July 27, 2013 at 3:41 pm

And in the interests of historical accuracy, we should remember that it was not only Republicans of that era that were isolationists. Norman Thomas helped organize the America First Committee, and prominent liberals of the time, such as Stuart Chase and Robert Maynard Hutchins were also identified with the Committee and with isolationism.

Midler’s idiocy reminds me a little of Barbra Streisand’s silly burbling about being inspired to study Jefferson after Bill Clinton’s 1992 victor.

Little Al on July 26, 2013 at 7:11 pm

Uh, Bette, ever hear of Joseph Kennedy?

louie louie on July 26, 2013 at 7:14 pm

Great article, great humor injected as well. What a total idiot vaJINO.

samurai on July 26, 2013 at 8:17 pm

She’s an absolute embarrassment. I avoid ANYTHING she says because she is so bloody dumb even Helen Flanagan could make sport of her.

I was never a BM fan but at one time I thought she was prolly very talented…she could sing (not that horrid song DS referenced…I hate that song and that DUMB movie…I’d rather watch a cement wall than watch that maudlin chick-flick!!), was funny and a good actress (“The Rose” was very popular as were some of her 80s films like “Down & Out In Beverely Hills”).

Maybe if I had been a fan I could see I was mistaken.

She’s ignorant and arrogant. And no one cares about her anymore! STFU Bette Midler.

Skunky on July 26, 2013 at 8:36 pm

    Skunky, the likes of Bette should be left to them: http://www.endicott-cards.com/pd/images/YolenFate2.jpg

    Worry01 on July 27, 2013 at 12:56 am

    Skunky – has the imbecility of fair Helen gone world-wide? How did you hear of this uber-idiot?

    Nir Lieu on July 27, 2013 at 6:10 am

      I read the British papers, Nir. She is well known as the dimmest of dim. She is very beautiful thou’. But terribly daft and dim.

      Skunky on July 27, 2013 at 10:03 am

A lot of Republicans, Independents and Democrats were isolationists prior to WWII breaking out. And it wasn’t an anti-Jew thing at that time. The Jews of pre-WWII Germany were treated no worse than the Jews of our Muslim “Allies” are treated today.
The Holocaust didn’t begin until after the war started. We never even found out about it until towards the end of the war.
After the attack on Pearl Harbor and America officially entered WWII, 99% of the isolationists closed up shop and were united in the war effort.
The Republicans then were certainly more supportive of FDR while fighting WWII than the Democrats have been of any Republican president that was fighting a war.
If I had been alive at the time and having saw what a stupid mess WWI was, I would have been in favor of staying out of another worthless European war.
Just like I’m in favor of staying out of Syria today.

Steve G. on July 26, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    The Holocaust was known to the West by mid-1942.

    Little Al on July 27, 2013 at 7:23 am

    So, Steve, my Grandfather-in-law being in Dachau in early 1938 wasn’t part of the Holocaust? Could have fooled me. He was let out because he had sponsors in the US but don’t divide the Holocaust into those who got out and those who didn’t. Had he not had sponsors, they would have sent him to Auschwitz eventually, I’m sure.

    Italkit on July 27, 2013 at 3:39 pm

Liberalism is a mental disease…Midler a case in point.

jwb on July 26, 2013 at 8:54 pm

Bette and BO both got their start at the Continental Baths
and both took more hose than RuPaul on a FDNY float.

Commander Zero on July 26, 2013 at 9:10 pm

    Bette’s marriage to a son of a Nazi is a marriage of convenience even though they did produce a daughter who looks like an old crone. I was under the impression that Bette was a lesbian.

    lexi on July 28, 2013 at 1:19 pm

    Great and funny AND probably true comment.

    barry on July 28, 2013 at 9:06 pm

Given the lyrical content of “Wind Beneath My Wings” (which, before Ms. Midler touched it, was recorded by country-leaning artists such as Gary Morris), one could argue that a more appropriate title would be “Mat Beneath My Feet” (as in, doormat – think Silda Spitzer before she finally decided to ditch “Client #9,” Eliot).

ConcernedPatriot on July 26, 2013 at 10:46 pm

This is why uneducated morons who can sing should stick to talking about music and art and not show their horrible ignorance.

As everyone has pointed out, ALL Americans joined together and fought WW2. In addition, during the War it was well known that the Republicans and Democrats had a “truce” on most political infighting while the country was fighting the War. In fact FDR used to call the Republicans “the loyal opposition”.
In fact two of FDR’s cabinet secretaries from before the war started were Republicans. Frank Knox was Secretary of the Navy (and one of the best who ever held that office) and had served with Teddy Roosevelt in the Rough Riders. Henry Stimson was a WW1 artillery colonel and later Secretary of State who served as Secretary of War until the end of WW2 (and did a fine job as well).

Why Bette Midler’s stupid statement upsets me is that so many in this country don’t know the truth and will take this lunacy as the truth.

jimmyPx on July 26, 2013 at 11:49 pm

    The same goes for “low-info” twerps’ unquestioning acceptance of anything spewed by Jon Stewart, Bill Maher, and on the list. But it does seem Ms. Midler’s time had passed as far back as – what? – two decades ago, after “From a Distance.”

    ConcernedPatriot on July 27, 2013 at 8:59 am

We know from the Venona files that hundreds of highly placed Democrats were Soviet spies. Alger Hiss and Harry Dexter White were only the best known of them. They were virtually running the Executive. The entire post-War world order was essentially designed in Moscow.

Adam on July 27, 2013 at 1:28 am

Never cared for Bette. She was always a class B act.

Now for something a little different. Something closer to my world…

Nocturna on July 27, 2013 at 3:46 am

Miss Debbie, you being Jewish yourself, may have a better understanding why liberal Jews are so anti- Freedom and support the very people who would or would have had them dead. I have my own ideas on it , but don’t know for sure. Hitler is always brought up on almost anti-anything when a conservative or GOP member is reffered to. With the exception of race that is. No talent Midler mad her way with her foul mouth. The entertainment world is so pro-commie, pro-socialist, anti-Freedom. Yet many liberal Jewish folk are in it. Along with non-Jews, who hate our system of government ideals. America is not perfect , but the ideas of America are the best on earth. Just that mankind messes it up. Keep up the Good Reporting.

William on July 27, 2013 at 10:23 am

Wasn’t “Papa” Joe Kennedy a big Nazi sympathizer which cost him the Ambassadorship to England? My recollection, he was a Dem.

Pete on July 27, 2013 at 10:54 am

I thought I liked Bette Midler but that’s because all I knew about her was that she acted in a few films I enjoyed including some Skunky mentioned.

That’s all I wanted to know and probably all I would have know if “Wind Beneath My Wings” hadn’t become the most incredibly annoying and overplayed song on earth after the first couple of weeks of airplay.

After reading this I realize that she’s probably another irate Hollywood spoiled brat malcontent.
I guess when you get everything you want politically and the situation still sucks worse than it did before you got your way then the only option is to go full libtard and accuse Republicans of being closet Nazi sympathizers.

Screw you Bette “mental case” Midler.

ty for the abedin i been missing db on July 27, 2013 at 12:28 pm

Even the isolationist paleocon Republicans were in favor of the war after Pearl Harbor and Hitler’s declaration of war on the US. They opposed war beforehand, but even Charles Lindbergh was gung-ho for war after Pearl Harbor. The only people rooting for the nazis were a handful of unassimilated German immigrants and fringe fascists.

The only Congressman to vote against the war was Jeanette Rankin, an uber-pacifist who also opposed the Vietnam War, meaning she was actually a pacifist, since she opposed war against both communism and fascism, not just a pacifist who pretends to oppose war when her sympathies were with the other side. A stupid position, but not a subjectively pro-Nazi one.

aisaac on July 27, 2013 at 12:35 pm

Jeanette Rankin had no qualms about working with the Communists though, in opposition to the Vietnam War.

Little Al on July 27, 2013 at 4:07 pm

Does she know that Wendell Wilkie, the 1940 Republican candidate for President, travelled the world after he lost the election, trying to drum up support for the Roosevelt administration and its war effort?

Miranda Rose Smith on July 28, 2013 at 11:19 am

The Rose definitely has lost it’s bloom…

Marc on July 28, 2013 at 7:40 pm

If the democrats today are the Nazi sympathizers of yesterday, then the republicans are certainly being supportive by their inaction.

MANGOG on July 29, 2013 at 2:22 pm

Anti-Israel Bette Midler is either a serial Liar or a just another leftist propagandist .

Dwight Eisenhower was a Republican that did every thing he could to not only win World War 2 but prosecute Germany for war crimes . Republican Dwight Eisenhower was well known for getting all the evidence he could to prosecute German miltary officials for war crimes including photos of death/holocaust camps .

It was Winston Churchill that lead the war drums against nazi Germany (national Socialist workers party) . “Americans Will Always Do the Right Thing — After Exhausting All the Alternatives ” Wiston Churchill ..
