I was just talking about artists being certified fools here. Now KORN guitarist JAMES 'MUNKY' SHAFFER has stuffed his foot in his mouth far past his uvula.

“This Munky’s Gone to Heaven”

Korn guitarist Munky Shaffer thinks Hitler went to heaven:

    KORN guitarist JAMES ‘MUNKY’ SHAFFER has kicked up a storm of controversy by saying that he thinks HITLER “went to heaven”.

    The statement has been compared in America to the time John Lennon claimed that The Beatles were bigger than Jesus, with fans and the media quick to attack him for blasphemy and bad taste.

    “I think this is true Hitler went to Heaven (if there is such a thing as Heaven really exists),” Munky said. “He felt that what he did was right, and I think that if what you feel you’re doing is right, in your heart, then you can’t be wrong!”

Has there ever been a mass murderer who didn’t think he was doing the right thing? That this statement is outrageously stupid goes without saying, but it is so MONUMENTALLY stupid and blind and wrongheaded that it deserves an award of some sort. Can you imagine someone other than a musician saying something this removed from reality? Would anyone but an artist go this far to preserve the sanctity of “doing your own thing”?

I think not. Just play your guitar dumbass.
