There is no excuse for listening to the ludicrous ravings of celebrities

This appears to be another case of Hollywood celebs trying to keep as much attention as possible even if it means saying really crazy stuff. Or, in other news, DON’T listen to celebrities pontificate about history.

Tila Tequila Claims ‘Hitler Was A Good Man,’ Paul Walker’s Murder Was ‘Ritualistic’: LAist.

Tila Tequila, the former reality TV star who now covers her Facebook fan page with her theories about the Illuminati and God, is now focused on a new favorite dude: Adolf Hitler.

Over the past few days, Tila (whose real name is Tila Nguyen) has been posting on Facebook photos of herself with a Nazi swastika arm band, as well as attempting to debunk what she thinks is a common misconception that Hitler was a monster.

These days, she takes to social media to talk about her conspiracy theories, also referring to herself as Queen Tilisis. Despite her recent posts about siding with Hilter, she claims her views aren’t anti-Semitic. In the first part of a series on her blog, entitled, “Why I Sympathize With Hitler Part 1: True History Unveiled,” on Dec. 7, she writes:

Also, in addition to ranting about Hitler, she claimed on Facebook on Dec. 7 that she knows who killed Elisa Lam, the 21-year-old woman who was found dead in the water tank of an L.A. hotel back in February, and that it was a ritualistic murder like Paul Walker’s.

There’s so much crazy and wrong in the things Tila is saying, it’s hard to figure out where to start. Or how much is real or just rantings of someone detached from reality. Among other things, she writes this on her Facebook page about her critics:

I never said I hated anyone, but just because I fee sympathy, compassion, and forgiveness for others such as Hitler means I am now a monster? All for trying to open your eyes to the truth that Hitler was NOT as bad as he was painted out to be?

There is good reason why Hitler is considered the modern day face of ultimate evil. He was pretty bad. Coming to the defense of such a character will not make you look good in any way, shape or form. It’s on par with saying that John Wilkes Booth wasn’t such a bad guy for killing Abraham Lincoln.

She then has the gall to play the role of a martyr and a messenger of God (comparing herself to Jesus?) with this statement:

God is watching you and I am God’s messenger. Mock me all you want. YOU WILL regret doing so! Remember when Jesus also told the people he was a messenger???? Hmmm… Anyway this picture is more proof that EVERY ETHNIC PERSON WAS INVOLVED IN WWII… NOT JUST GERMAN PEOPLE! SO WAKE UP AND STOP BEING IN DENIAL! Blacks, Asians, Jews, Middle Easterners and so on… ALL WERE NAZIS!!! But did you ever hear about this? NO! Because the Zionist Cabal doesn’t want you to know the truth but I will speak the truth for GOD since NO ONE ELSE HAS THE BALLS TO! Go ahead.. keep stoning me. You will regret it. May God Have Mercy On you all! You complain about wanting to see change in this world yet YOU STILL ACT LIKE BARBARIANS!!!! I despise the humans. God tells me to take it easy on them… but I despise most of them to be perfectly honest.

She seems to be clueless to the fact that while people from all over the world and of all different ethnicities and races participated in World War 2, most of them were fighting AGAINST Hitler. The non-whites who considered themselves Nazis were more the exception, not the rule.

As far as Paul Walker’s death, that seems to be nothing more than an accident. I guess we’ll know more about that once the investigation is over.

However, knowing Ms. Tequila’s history with substance abuse and personality disorders (she’s diagnosed as bi-polar and having multiple personalities) perhaps she is having a mental break down? She may also have a case of Dunning-Kruger cognitive bias where she is confident she knows MUCH more than she really does.

This is a picture Tila Tequila uploaded to her Facebook page. Not doing yourself any favors here.

    Has anyone ever doubted that WW2 wasn’t multi cultural?

    Wow, Initially I had a lot to say about this, but the more I read the more I came to the conclusion that she might be taking a vacation from reality.

    I thought multiple personality disorder was not a real thing. I did a quick Google search and it sounds like there is no consensus. From what i understand, the traditional cases like “Sybil” and “United States of Tara” were not representative of the reality of the disorder. I wouldn’t mind hearing from someone who knows what they are talking about. Is Steven Novella lurking by chance?

    I thought Multiple Personality Disorder was not a real thing. I could not find a definitive answer after a brief Google search. Maybe some one who knows better might weigh in.

    I find her particularly offensive anyway. This only confirms how I already feel.

    Although it is my understanding that multiple personality disorder has been left in the standard US diagnostic manual but under a different name (dissociative identity disorder) many experts consider it to be a controversial or discredited diagnosis and an iatrogenic condition. (In other words, a trouble person seeks help, is told by a therapist that they have multiple personalities, has the condition and associated behaviors described to them and then the troubled person begins to act as they have been told they “should.” Hmm, might be common in attention seeking types such as the above person perhaps.)

    For what it’s worth, my prediction (I’m psychic, you see) is that Tila will act crazy for as long as it gets her in the news and then when attention starts to fade, she’ll suddenly turn around, claim some sort of severe mental illness, apologize profusely, and then milk that for all the attention it’s worth. The problem with this strategy, however, is that in order to be a true celebrity you’ve got to have at least something that resembles a talent, like an ability to sing, act, or even do a decent puppet show. It’s not enough to just look like a sexy little muppet.

    If anyone is interested, that building behind her is Birkenau, a Nazi concentration camp in Poland.

    The surprising thing is not her strange rants. The surprising thing is that anyone takes the time to read them. Wait, what did I just do? Oh crap. I’m part of it! Curse you, Sharon!

  10. December 10, 2013 at 6:47 PM

    My guess is that she doing all of this for attention. The reason why I believe this is because (along with her personality) there are a lot of comments on her page and blog criticizing her, none of which she has either replied to and/or removed. Most people whom are apparently this far off from reality (be it via mental illness or severe bias) tend to not be able to deal with criticism to well and will usually attack those whom criticize them, or try to suppress any criticism of them (i.e. delete comments). Considering this coupled with the fact that she has a very narcissistic personality, and that she has engaged in some very outrageous behavior in the past in other blatant attempts to seek attention, leads me to believe that she is doing this as a way to bring attention onto herself.

    I wouldn’t be shocked if drugs were involved, but I don’t think it is for attention (well, not entirely). This is pretty standard crap from the depths of American conspiracy culture.

    Or I could just leave this here

    Some years ago I was creating the subtitles for Tequila’s MTV reality show “A Shot at Love.” My coworkers and I agreed that Tila was the most repulsive person we’d ever seen (non-criminal category). By contrast, we also worked on “From G’s to Gents,” which featured con men and street gang members — and we loved some of those guys! (Especially the host.)

    Hitler did ONE thing I consider ‘good’- the VW Beetle. And yah… that *is* a stretch. As for this thing in the news- a LOT of these reality stars who have nothing to work with seem to be going this route- a long with a lot of politicians. New trend? Or are we seeing these people for what they really are… which is insane?

    I’m going to phrase this very crudely, but it’s a question I’m genuinely interested in, and it arises from reading some things about the history of incarceration for mental (or supposed mental) disorders.

    It’s easy to consider such people ‘crazy’ and their ideas ‘mad’, but reading that “God’s messenger” quote and considering, say, David Icke, just how crazy do you have to be to be crazy? Is there a point at which a passionately held but irrational belief becomes “insane?” Is it a kind of monomania? Temporary insanity? Donald Crowhurst, alone on his boat, broke down completely and believed he was becoming a god; is that divorced from or just further along the same line as believing yourself to be a messenger of God who thinks Hitler wasn’t entirely a bad egg?

  19. December 12, 2013 at 11:20 AM

    Well, that depends on who is defining “crazy” and for what purpose and under which set of guidelines. In the USA, the criminal definition of “insanity” is quite different from the medical definition. (i.e. if I think someone is reading my mind and sending the results to the CIA via satellite I am medically insane. If I shoot that person for allegedly reading my mind, I am only legally insane if I did not understand I would be punished for doing so.) In the USA, generally speaking, one can only treat people against their will if they are a danger to themselves or others. In some regimes, merely questioning the wisdom of the regime’s policies and ideologies can get you put in a mental institution and declared insane. For the record, most definitions of mental illness include a phrase or two about holding very strange beliefs “outside their cultural or community norm” so that we do not incarcerate foreign people or minority religion members who hold beliefs that strike us as bizarre but are the norm within their community.

    OTOH, my vote is Tila’s faking. She’s mixed too much together in a crude fashion and is trying to push too many buttons at once. I think her personal history shows her as attention seeking and not very restrained, to say the least.

    @YetAnoutherBrian Skeptoid did an interesting episode on the phenomenon (or non-phenomenon) of ‘Sybil.’

    @Peter Huston Thanks, that’s interesting.

    Whatever it is, it’s not a simple drug-fueled rant at three o’clock in the morning. The words might have been pounded out of a keyboard in a few minutes, but that picture took time and effort to assemble – and while it’s not a magazine-cover quality Photoshop job, it’s also not something which could be done by someone pumped up on drugs. Putting that picture together took some time, effort, and planning on her part. It also took some research – as LREKing points out, that’s not just some random building in the background; it was deliberately chosen as an “appropriate” symbol, then made to look glorious. She may have required some help from people she knows who use Photoshop (I would not be surprised if she knew many such people).

    In a nutshell, I don’t think this represents the ramblings of a crazy person or a drugged person. Here’s what I think: I’m betting that she’ll claim that she was hacked, that she didn’t write any of this, and that someone is trying to soil her reputation (and let’s face it, if someone wanted to do that, this is about the only place left to go). The fact that it’s gone unchallenged by Tila for a few days makes that an unlikely theory, but I am wondering: has she actually SAID anything, in person, which would support these posts?

    I guess I should have looked it up first – she’s taking full credit for it, and saying it was “satire” which is a word she clearly doesn’t know the meaning of but heard that it’s sometimes used to deflect criticism, along with a bunch more crazy stuff. Guess I gave her too much credit.

    I wonder if this is a calculated PR move. If you take a step back and look at Miley Cirus, everything she has done lately appears to be calculated. I think this thing with Tila might be the same thing. In advertising you play to the products strengths. Her strengths are her looks and an undercurrent of crazy. Outrageous behavior is working for Miley, why not try the same for Tila? This seems like a rehash of the seventies Shock Rock movement all over again.
