Passé singer Linda Ronstadt compares Pres. Trump to Hitler

The old adage that wisdom routinely accompanies age is a fallacy. With proper guidance, wisdom can flourish in youth. Age has little to do with it. There is no smart cell that develops in middle age and keeps regenerating and increasing in size until all septuagenarian and octogenarians attain genius level.

Onetime pop star, singer Linda Ronstadt is a case in point. Then pretty and possessing a good voice and versatile style, she went solo in the 1960s. Now in her mid-70s, the Tucson-born Ronstadt, whose brother Peter was the city’s police chief, has lost her voice to the ravages of Parkinson’s Disease, and has become an unrecognizable “activist.” Few people under 50 know her name today.

And wouldn’t you know…she hates President Trump?

Now living in radical San Francisco, she is back in her element, having been the main squeeze of far-left California Gov. Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown in the 1970s.

Crime, homelessness, rat infestations and piles of human waste fouling sidewalks, driving away tourists, must appeal to Ronstadt. What doesn’t resonate with her is history. She confuses murderous tyrants with the leader of the free world.

Her latest statement exhibiting her abysmal ignorance came during this recent interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper. Ronstadt said she sees “great parallels” between pre-Nazi Germany and now.

“The intelligentsia of Berlin and the literati and all the artists were just busy doing their thing. Hitler rose to power. There were a lot of chances to stop him, and they didn’t speak out,” she told Cooper. “The industrial complex thought they could control him once they got him in office, and, of course, he was not controllable.”

By the time he got established, he put his own people in place and stacked the courts and did what he had to do to consolidate his power,” she said. “And we got Hitler, and he destroyed Germany. He destroyed centuries of intellectual history forward and backward.”

Cooper responded, telling Ronstadt that he thinks a lot of people would be “surprised” to hear her make comparisons between Nazi Germany and Trump’s America.

“If you look at history, you won’t be surprised, it’s exactly the same. You find a common enemy for everybody to hate” Ronstadt said. “I was sure that Trump was going to get elected the day he announced, and I said it’s going to be like Hitler and the Mexicans are the new Jews. And sure enough, that’s what he delivered.”

Her comments are exceedingly ignorant. Linda Ronstadt might have missed the part of her ‘historical studies” that detailed concentration camps, ovens for humans and showers that spewed deadly gas on naked men, women and children who were cruelly handed bars of soap to placate them before they were massacred. Six million Jews who were generational citizens of the countries of Germany, Poland, Lithuania and other Eastern European nations were initially required to wear yellow six-pointed stars identifying them, disallowed schooling, fired from their jobs, then forced out of their homes, rounded up, starved, suffered depraved medical experimentation and exterminated. Train tracks were built to bring the prisoners directly to the killing centers.

It is the disease of liberalism rather than Parkinson’s Disease that has eroded Linda Ronstadt’s mind.

    Dementia can accompany Parkinson’s Disease. Couple that fact with her radical leftism, and that provides the answer to this lunacy that Linda Ronstadt spews. CNN’s Anderson Cooper was thrilled to give her the platform for her vicious views and vomit her anti-Trump venom.

  2. Dedicated Trump Supporter says:

    I just asked my college student son, a music aficionado, if he had ever heard of Linda Ronstadt. He asked, “Who?”

  3. Mike says:

    Truly a shame that some of my favorite and most talented musical artists can also be so lacking in intelligence. Linda – who has done some of my favorite 70s songs of all time – is only one example. Harry Belafonte is another notable one. And just as with Hollywood actors and actresses, there are many others.

  4. Kathy says:

    Wasn’t she dating or married to Gov. Brown back when? Kinda tellng isn’t it.

    • Casper says:

      The post clearly indicates they were a “dating” couple.
      Linda Ronstadt has never been married, but she adopted a couple of children

    Linda Ronstadt and Jane Fonda. Two old radicals from my day. Much like herpes, just when you think they are gone forever, they appear once again. No, I don’t have herpes, but I have seen the rash, just like those two.
