Rabbi to Aubrey Oy Vey -- No Brilliance in Hate!

9/2/2009 5:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

From the completely obvious file -- the comments Aubrey O'Day made about Hitler and Fidel Castro on "The Sean Hannity Show" Monday night immediately struck a chord with members of the Jewish community.

 Rabbi to Aubrey Oy Vey

TMZ spoke with Rabbi Chaim Cunin of Chabad House who gave us the following statement:

"When a woman like her uses public airwaves, with access to millions of wonderful citizens of America, and calls some of the most despicable, unspeakable hate mongers of history brilliant, then something is lacking with her intelligence.

This is a constant reminder of how careful we need to be when we talk about hate, because hatred is always present. We need to make sure we are careful and that hatred doesn't rear it's ugly head.

'I'd like for her to think about some older Holocaust survivor having that comment beamed into their home while they are enjoying the freedom that this beautiful country provides and having to listen to her disgusting comments."

The Rabbi is showing his ignorance when he says things like this. Both those men are brilliant, infamous but undenyably brilliant. Rabbi, YOU should really stop YOUR hate mongering, she is entitled to her opinion and in this case millions agree with her, they were brilliant and you are ignorant.

I went to one of a series of concerts with Hannity's name on them. I have never heard so many lies, hate, filth about this group or "them" in my life. This was in essence a republican party "white is right" thing. The guise was that the concerts were being given for Military families. And, hopefully some of the money actually made it to them.
The "hate jocks" belittled women, gays, blacks, minorities, and most but not least, muslims. We didn't know if we would see the men with white sheets and burning crosses, or the purple koolaid being passed out.
Really, really scary stuff. Brainwashing in the name of hate-- if she is one of Hannity's, or the other "Hate Jocks and Proud of It", she is probably way past the supremacist stage.

I think the Fox people are asses for putting this woman on a "news" show to begin with. Maybe they did it intentionally hoping to stir this kind of controversy? Good for ratings isn't it. This is why I get irritated with the media these days. So hard to find the "straight story" on anything at all these days without everyone weighing in with their "perspectives".

I don't know much about Castro but I do know that Hitler was a sociopath. Sociopaths often are well liked because of their charm and high charisma, but they do not usually care about other people. They think mainly of themselves and often blame others for the things that they do. They have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly. They seldom feel guilt or learn from punishments. Some become murderers and Hitler is a prime example. Brilliance? Nope, just that hate can rear lots of power the same way love can. Only love wins. Reminds me of Darth Vador.

Why are no Cuban people speaking up about this? Why was a Cuban person not interviewed on the outrage this has caused them? ...because it hasn't!

TMZ cut the crap..he didn't say he wasn't that bad...populistic shit.    

Suprising that this rabbi opens his big manipulating mouth? Not so much. All historians agree that Hitler was highly intelligent. He had developed a new ideology! A wrong one but it was new and highly successfull before he went to war and started craving world dominance. Nothing wrong with admitting that. That rabbi has nerves to begin with..Talking to Sean Hannity about intelligence is like talking to well Sean Hannity about intelligence.

Most of the comments on here are are uncharacteristically supportive of this girl and her comments.

Could it be that the anti-conservative, anti Hannity bias is So strong, that we are now defending HITLER??

America is doomed.

'I'd like for her to think about some older Holocaust survivor having that comment beamed into their home while they are enjoying the freedom that this beautiful country provides and having to listen to her disgusting comments."

It's called a freaking remote control - it you don't like what she was saying - turn the damn channel.

I hate groups like this that think it is there place to monitor all of tv and tell us what they didn't like about what someone else states.

It's called freedom of speach - turn the damn channel.

I wonder why TMZ takes this stand. Sure you can find someone, who are willing to sound of against Aubreys statement, but is it relevant,hardly.
1 It was Hannity who brought up Hitler
2 Aubrey is a political science major, who met Castro during her studies. This entitles her to a qualified opinion
3 As many have stated her statement was objectively true.

This brings the question. Why does TMZ carry on like this, it looks like a personal issue. Surely it could not have anything to do with Harvey Levin being jewish,right?

STFU TMZ YOU ARE IDIOTS    

Hitler was also a huge meth addict, which probably added to his evilness. He stayed up all night and gave his nazis meth too to stay up. It is rumored he invented crystal meth but this is not true.

First, her comments seem to have been taken out of context. She said the people were brilliant, not what they did. The Hitler comment was obviously in poor taste regardless of how she stated it. Castro is an enemy of the U.S. government but the suffering of the Cuban people is primarily the fault of numerous embargoes placed by the U.S., not by Castro. The fact that the U.S. does not like his politics does not mean he is stupid, just that those in power (and most people) do not agree with him. However we trade with many dictatorships, China being the most notable.
Second, she does have the same rights under the First Amendment as anyone else. If you don't like what she says, don't listen. But realize that any limits on her speech will also apply to you!!!!
