GOP Mega Donor Sheldon Adelson Wants To Nuke Iran

The biggest donor to Republican Party political groups said Tuesday that the United States should drop a nuclear bomb on Iran to spur the country to end its own nuclear program.

Sheldon Anderson, the billionaire casino mogul, said on a panel at Yeshiva University in New York City that an initial blast, targeted to hit only desert area, would kill “maybe a couple of rattlesnakes, and scorpions, or whatever,” according to video posted on the foreign policy news websiteMondoweiss.

“Then you say, ‘See! The next one is in the middle of Tehran. So, we mean business. You want to be wiped out? Go ahead and take a tough position and continue with your nuclear development.”

Adelson, a staunch Israel supporter, gave a whopping $92.8 million, along with his wife Miriam, to outside political groups during the 2012 election cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks political spending. He was a major backer of a super PAC that kept Newt Gingrich’s campaign aflat.

An audience member at the panel, titled “Will Jews Exist,” filmed Adelson’s comments. Watch below, starting at about 5:20:

  1. And this would solve WHAT AGAIN?

  2. Do as we say, not as we do

  3. I don’t think that I would use a nuke but Iran is a terrorist nation.

  4. Alex Schlesinger

  5. He is backing Dick Cheney in 2016

  6. Sick

  7. Money talks…crazy talk.

  8. Adelson the casino mobster. This guy makes the movie “Casino” look tame. Do you think he’d be suggesting killing on this mass a scale if he’d never murdered before, and copiously, against the labor activists he’s known for using mob tactics on?

  9. Someone should drop a house on him…

  10. You mean “Chinese Gambling Mogul Sheldon Adelson” ?

  11. Ass wipe…how about in YOUR house ….hopefully the gates of hell will open for you ugly man!

  12. Al Qaida is C.I.A.

  13. Wealthy, but still the Village Idiot…

  14. What a delusional bastard. He won’t be happy until the entire world has been nuked. I propose we put nuclear seeds in his oatmeal and sit back and wait for him to implode.

  16. Typical “American Idiot” where everyone who not a US Puppet should be bombed and kill, meanwhile they also said to public “WE RESPECT HUMAN RIGHTS”

  17. Iran sponsors Hezbollah and Hamas. As well as dictators like Bashar Al Assad. Iran does not deserve to be nuked but it’s people deserve freedom from their oppressive government. It’s not just America and Israel who don’t want Iran to have nukes, it’s also all their arab neighbours and Azerbaijan.

  18. 1962, my father was in the US Army signed to Iran as A military advisor. Times change.

  19. There is no islam anywhere where in this world as we don’t see peace,aman,shanti,salmti—-muslim is the one who brings in peace

  20. and he can ride the bomb just like Slim Pickens in Dr. Strangelove. Make sure the like him, the bomb is a dud.

  21. He is interested in his money. He does not care about other people. Thank God he isn’t in control!

  22. the beast is within us.

  23. I got an idea. Seeing as how this old kook has such a hunger for war, let’s just have him trade in his business suit and rhetoric for camos and an assault rifle and let him try to live out his asinine Rambo fantasies instead of sending young men and women to die in a pointless war.

    I can already see Mr. Adelson try to stir things up with the Iranian military. It would be a short-lived Quixotic exercise as the poor schmoes who encountered Mr. Adelson would then proceed to scratch their heads in disbelief, take him into custody, and then place a call to the US. It probably would go something like this:

    “Hello?…Is this the US State Department?…Ah, marvellous! My name is Colonel Gilani, I am calling from the Islamic Republic of Iran, how are you?…ah, that is nice…I’m fine, thank you. I hate to bother you, but we have a minor situation on our hands…nononono, nothing serious, I assure you. More…perplexing than anything else. You see, two of our border guards picked up one of your citizens trying to illegally enter our country. He was wearing camoflauge and was carting around what looked like a plastic gun…Eh? No, no, no one was hurt. He’s fine. We were just wondering, have any tourist groups reported a missing senior citizen? Or have there been any reports of someone wandering away from one of your retirement homes?…His name?…Sheldon Adelson…Hm?…A billionaire?…Come now, you must be pulling my leg…because who in their right mind would trust someone this obviously disturbed with that kind of money?…You’re right, they probably weren’t in their right mind to begin with. Anyway, if it won’t be too much trouble, we will see to it he is put on the first flight out of Tehran in the morning to–I’m sorry, where is Mr. Adelson’s residence?…Nevada?…Well, alright…No problem, just glad to help an old man get home. But please, as a favor to me, can you see to it he is placed in the care of a mental health professional? I think he requires therapy. LOTS of therapy…thank you, sir. Goodbye.”

  24. Fuck that crap, that’s fuckin’ genocide.

  25. Great

  26. Yeah, right, Sheldon — you’ve really thought that one through –

  27. Haaretz had some scathing comments in their article about Adelson’s comments. Many in Israel are calling for an investigation into his “donations” to Netanyahu and others are demanding he be barred from monetarily influencing Israeli elections

  29. Ben Melville your skit is priceless! I’m afraid you may have missed your calling.

  30. Ben Melville your skit is priceless! I’m afraid you may have missed your calling.
