Former MLB Pitcher: Holocaust Could’ve Been Prevented if Jews Had Guns

Former MLB pitcher, John Rocker, is better known for his controversial and offensive rants than his baseball career.

In 1999, Rocker spewed a hate-filled rant offending almost everyone including gays, people living with AIDS, New Yorkers, mothers, and much more. More recently, he reportedly called a black teammate a “fat monkey” and a sports writer a “fag”.

Now, Rocker has joined in on the gun control debate that exploded in the United States since the tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary. In an opinion piece published on World Net Daily’s website, Rocker manages to, yet again, offend millions by expressing with “absolute certainty” that the Holocaust could’ve been prevented if only the Jews had guns.

“Mr. Obama wants to severely neuter the Second Amendment and disarm the law-abiding citizens of this nation, a similar act of tyrants throughout the 20th century such as Stalin, Mao and Hitler. Absolute certainties are a rare thing in this life, but one I think can be collectively agreed upon is the undeniable fact that the Holocaust would have never taken place had the Jewish citizenry of Hitler's Germany had the right to bear arms and defended themselves with those arms.”

What do you think of Rocker’s comments?
