Susan Sarandon

Heil No She Didn't

10/17/2011 11:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Not all Nazi insults are created equal -- case in point, why Susan Sarandon's Nazi-Pope comment was magnitudes worse than Hank Williams' Hitler-Obama analogy.

Plus, Robert Downy Jr. has a point ... it's time to forgive Mel Gibson. Just look at Michael Vick. Also, if you believe Jose Baez's explanation for his dinner date with Barbara Walters last night, we've got some beachfront property in Phoenix to sell you.


(9:01) Susan Sarandon's comment about Pope Benedict lead us to a classic Seinfeld character ... the soup Nazi!
(9:43) The Pope has a PR team?! Isn't he God's PR guy?
(15:30) Max dares you to imagine Hitlers "O" face.
(19:26) Robert Downey Jr. says Mel Gibson has suffered enough and we should forgive him ... do you?
(24:26) Don't invite Harvey to any Hollywood parties ... he gives us his opinion on fancy shmancy Hollywood events.
(30:27) What's worse ... Mel Gibson's rants or what Michael Vick did to dogs? Our newsroom weighs in.
(37:17) Barbara Walters might want to get an interview from Jose Baez ... but she doesn't want a hug!
(40:08) On the kick of forgiving people ... we think people will soon forget about Casey Anthony and not have so much hate towards her.
(49:00) We give a quick blow by blow of what Lindsay Lohan might face in court this Wednesday.

Technically, Susan Sarandon is right.

The son of a rural Bavarian police officer, Ratzinger was six when Hitler came to power in 1933. His father, also called Joseph, was an anti-Nazi whose attempts to rein in Hitler’s Brown Shirts forced the family to move home several times.

In 1937 Ratzinger’s father retired and the family moved to Traunstein, a staunchly Catholic town in Bavaria close to the Führer’s mountain retreat in Berchtesgaden. He joined the Hitler Youth aged 14, shortly after membership was made compulsory in 1941.

He quickly won a dispensation on account of his training at a seminary. “Ratzinger was only briefly a member of the Hitler Youth and not an enthusiastic one,” concluded John Allen, his biographer.

Two years later Ratzinger was enrolled in an anti-aircraft unit that protected a BMW factory making aircraft engines. The workforce included slaves from Dachau concentration camp.

Ratzinger has insisted he never took part in combat or fired a shot — adding that his gun was not even loaded — because of a badly infected finger. He was sent to Hungary, where he set up tank traps and saw Jews being herded to death camps. He deserted in April 1944 and spent a few weeks in a prisoner of war camp.

He has since said that although he was opposed to the Nazi regime, any open resistance would have been futile — comments echoed this weekend by his elder brother Georg, a retired priest ordained along with the cardinal in 1951.

“Resistance was truly impossible,” Georg Ratzinger said. “Before we were conscripted, one of our teachers said we should fight and become heroic Nazis and another told us not to worry as only one soldier in a thousand was killed. But neither of us ever used a rifle against the enemy.”

Some locals in Traunstein, like Elizabeth Lohner, 84, whose brother-in-law was sent to Dachau as a conscientious objector, dismiss such suggestions. “It was possible to resist, and those people set an example for others,” she said. “The Ratzingers were young and had made a different choice.”

Hey Harvey, why do you insist on carrying information about Michaele Salahi and Neal Schoen?
They are about 3 decades past their expiration dates.

anything is forgivable unless you murder someone, and even there some people can forgive. none of those 3 people have hurt anyone. the only person lindsay hurts is herself and her family. of course all three can be forgiven.

She deserves jail time,but she has done an amazing job at making a mockery out of the legal system. She is the Teflon violator.

He was also later in the Wermacht as an artilery man until 1945! So, not only the Hitler Youth, but also the Army.

There are Real Nazis out there... Look at them then look at the Pope... see the difference. Stop using the name so flippantly, you dilute the word. Nazi, Fascist, Evil Meglo-maniacal Tyrant... using those when its really really apt, please. This was stupid, and a real shame to see someone use it in that manner.
