British Politician Says Hitler a Good Model for Public Speaking

Bill Etheridge, from Britain's UK Independence Party, told youth activists that they should look to Adolf Hitler for public speaking tips because he was a "magnetic and forceful public speaker" who "achieved a great deal," the Daily Mail reports.

Said Etheridge: "Look back to the most magnetic and forceful public speaker possibly in history. When Hitler gave speeches, and many of the famous ones were at rallies, at the start he walks, back and forth, looked at people -- there was a silence, he waited minutes just looking out at people, fixing them with his gaze. They were looking back and he would do it for a while. And then they were so desperate for him to start, when he started speaking they were hanging on his every word."
