CM Punk Calls The Pope A ‘Nazi’ – Kurt Angle Responds

CM Punk tweeted a Nazi joke about the news that Pope Benedict XVI is retiring due to his age at the end of the month. Benedict has been often criticized for his participation in the Hitler Youth program in the late ’30s, a participation that he defended by saying that all children who grew up in Germany were forced to join the group. Punk retweeted the following from a fan, calling the joke “magic”:

“The pope resigned? I did nazi that coming.”

When someone else replied to it saying that Punk was pushing the envelope, Punk replied:

“Oh piss off. Pope was a nazi.”

UPDATE: Kurt Angle posted the following to Twitter in response to CM Punk’s comments about The Pope being a Nazi:

“Cm Punk Should thank GOD that the Pope is a forgiving Man. Because Even the Pope Could Whip Punk’s skinny ass”

    Dang, the Pope's almost old enough to run for the Republican Presidential nominee.

    • purpleurkel says:

      If he would've lied about his entire past and sh** on the constitution he could've been the next Democratic President


      • The Spectacular Crimson Spider says:

        You’re absolutely right. Because the LAST president didn’t do Jack Crap and Obama is to blame for everything. Yep, that last president was shining example of how intelligent, mature, coordinated and racially unbiased a president is supposed to be. And if you believe that,You sir, are a Dumbass. Or at least a bigger one than I originally thought judging from that comment you posted.

        • jbcissom says:

          I love how Obama supporters blame the economy on Bush, but don't realize that Obama supported over 80% of the policies that Bush pushed as a congressman that put the country in it's financial shape.

          You need to look up Lewis Black's definition of the American political system. Currently, it is a spot on definition.

          • Bigmike885 says:

            yes, because lewis black is my go to man on american politics…as for your other arguments…Bush pushed for not one, but 2, wars that we could not afford and have greatly hurt our Obama perfect?..Hell no..but he was the best option out of the 2 men running for president..unless you're a straight white man..then Romney was the man for you…because if you were gay, black, a woman, or a imigrant (never mind the fact that his parents ran to mexico to avoid paying taxes,) you would have been screwed…

          • tnadude says:

            Not interested in getting political here. While I totally disagree with your view point (TBH, I doubt you really feel that strongly anyway), you are entitled to it, and are free to speak your mind.

            But, what does bother me is that you took the opportunity to call out Mitt Romney here, rather than CM Punk… The only person here that should be accused of being anti-anything is HIM. He's the moron who ran his mouth.

            The same goes for the posts above about Bush & Obama. I just found this one to be a bit more radical in nature than the others, hence my reply.

            TBH – the original comment was pretty funny… Republican nominees do tend to be a bit older (although Romney doesn't quite fit that bill).

          • jbcissom says:

            I just want to say you're freaking loony if you believe a Democrat or a Republican is going to save the U.S. Stop rotating on Obama's crotch, wake up, and get informed.

          • Bigmike885 says:

            Fox News isn't informative.Sent from my iPhone

          • jbcissom says:

            Only Liberals care about Fox News, have you not figured that out yet? Murdoch owns one of the most (self-proclaiming) conservative news outlets, meanwhile owning one of the more liberal television networks.

            And why even bring up Fox News… oh wait, that's right… you must be a liberal.

          • Leg Drop Jobber says:

            Who cares? This is a damn wrestling site! Shut up, already!

          • Matt Hardy says:

            The false Left-Right Paradigm is the biggest threat to liberty. It is a merry-go-round that the internationalist PTB use to fool the people and get their way by increments and reduce the sovereignty of both the states as well as ultimately the nation itself. Their talking heads all talk their unique spiels, but in the end they all fall in line to whatever the money powers agenda like dominoes. Like you said, the Republicrats are the problem. Most of the so-called hot button issues are really red herrings, because for example, in the instance of something like gay marriage, our constitution spells it out clearly that it is an issue for each STATE to decided and not the federal government. If the people of whatever state wants to allow h o m o sexuals to marry, it is not the business of another state, and the reverse is also true. There is no moral mandate to justify either side imposing their will on the other. It is certainly not within the mandate framed for the federal government. That is the beauty of free states. Don't like something, move to a state that suits you. An increasingly centralized federal authority can't solve anything, and just creates resentment and division, which is exactly what the PTB want. Divide and conquer, more micromanagement of everyone. Authoritarian systems will never voluntarily reduce, only expand.

          • Leg Drop Jobber says:

            Oh, gawd. Isn't there a freakin political discussion forum you can go spout your ridiculous conspiracy theories? THIS IS A WRESTING SITE. DISCUSS WRESTLING OR GO AWAY.

            You are the same type of person that complains when this site "posts a news article that is not related to TNA."

          • Matt Hardy says:

            Actually I don't, Jackoff! I have never stated that once. Nor do I piss and moan when people talk about other wrestling organizations other than TNA like some people do. It is a discussion board, it is fair game. If wrestlers make political statements or comments, I think that gives more than enough reason for people to talk about it on a wrestling related site if they so choose. Or are you the thought police, here to try to regulate anything that you don't approve of? You could follow your own advice, and if you don't want to read something then go away. Of course, that would be too difficult for a mouth breathing moron like yourself to comprehend. So piss up a rope, you aren't big enough to do anything about it.

          • Leg Drop Jobber says:

            Look here, Fatt Hardy. Maybe you should jackoff. I hope you don't take yourself as serious as you appear to, because you have the mental capacity of a starving c0ckroach. Nobody cares about your commentary, you slack jawed hillbilly. Stop the fvcking buffoonery before I verbally duct tape your face to your ass and throw lawn darts and you.

            You intellectually challenged, self-loathing abhorent piece of sh!t!!!!

    • Peckar says:

      I thought the original post was funny. You all take your politics way too seriously in the US. Which is surprising considering you only have a choice of dumb and dumber.

      • Leg Drop Jobber says:

        Have you ever been to America? Are you at all familiar with what a "meth cooking hillbilly" is? Have you ever seen that reality character, Honey Boo Boo? That is the kind of people that like to talk politics net-side here in America. Totally disregard them. Their owners need to put them back on their leesh.

    • WARISNAUGHTY says:

      HA HA HA HA! Maybe they are eyeing him up now as the future of their party.

    • Leg Drop Jobber says:

      HAHAHA. Good one.

  2. Listentna says:

    What a left wing liberal thing to say. But cant blame u for ur lack of intelligence ur dem teachers can take the blame.

    P.s. read a book not a magazine

    • The Spectacular Crimson Spider says:

      Oh snap, another one. Oh please forgive my lack of intelligence sir! I just thought stupid things like facts still mattered. Like this country was already in state of decay. Or that because of this so called War on Terror has furthered widened an already sizeable deficit. But what do I know? I’m just a guy who watches CNN and the news and reads more than Obama Hate monthly.

      P.S. Don’t underestimate someone you PERCEIVE as less intelligent.

    • NotCookz says:

      Your grammar, it hurts my brain.

  3. Listentna says:

    Obama is a celebrity not a president. I heard after hes done being president. Hes going to make a rap cd with jennifer hudson, common, Beyonce, jay z, jamie fox, kumar, and who ever else was on his campaign

  4. soyfenomenal says:

    Lol Kurt shut up..

  5. Mr. Excitement says:

    Someone hacked Kurt's Twitter again..

  6. jbcissom says:

    Is this a case of Kurt drunk tweeting again (thinking of Pope D'Angelo Dinero), or is this a legitimate tweet?

    Bottom line, Kurt Angle could whoop CM Punk's ass any day of the week.

  7. UCEAD11 says:

    This last statement is so true. But everyone is entitled to their own opinion. After all there's your opinion someone else's opinion then there is the truth.

  8. Bigmike885 says:

    i dont get why this is such a big deal..he didnt say he was evil..just said he was a nazi..which is compeltly was witty..tacky..AND ON TWITTER SO WHO F'N CARES!!!…

  9. hangers says:

    I thought he was talking about Elijah Burke until I read the article. I cant see that comment doing his WWE career any favours..

  10. MRPC says:

    What is it with this damn site and its misleading titles?

    There is only ONE 'Pope'… and he is Pimpin' Daddy!!

  11. tna24 says:

    how funny a simple story, turn into politics. like come on can we stick to the point on hand that CM punk is just like his character in wwe he a dick.

  12. TwIsTeD_EnEmY says:

    Yeah! Get him Angle!

  13. tnadude says:

    I'm speachless… A dumba$$ wrestler (who isn't part of TNA) tweets something about the REAL Pope – and people on this site are doing one of 3 things:

    1) Defending him
    2) Attacking President Bush
    3) Attacking President Obama

    As a Catholic (yep – that pretty much seals the deal that I'm a Republican), I'm greatly offended by his dumba$$ remark. It's stupid – he's stupid – and there's no place for it.

    Twitter is a tool to communicate. And it is not meant for comments like that.

    • Bigmike885 says:

      please..twitter was made for stuff like gives everyone a tool to say whatever they want to (not saying thats a good thing at all)…While i personally thought it was kind of a funny comment, i can completly see why someone of your religion would find it offensive, thats the problem with twitter..everyone can speak their mind, and everyone can read it…so it causes issues when there are not really issues.

      • tnadude says:

        With all due respect here – Jack Dorsey's vision for twitter was based on work he did for taxi dispatchers. He built twitter as a way for friends to share statuses.

        Twitter has since expanded and been used in ways well beyond his vision. Nonetheless – he never envisioned it being used as a forum for insulting people.

        As far as I'm concerned, Punk owes us all an apology. And it should come down from the top of the WWE. Right is right – and that ain't right my friend.

        • Bigmike885 says:

          did he lie? was one of the concerns when he was made pope..just because he doesnt believe your religion doesnt mean he has to appoligize for say something that's technically true…

          • tnadude says:

            I do agree with you – if the shoe fits – wear it. More people should subscribe to that theory. But in this case, it doesn't fit, and as a result, Punk is out of line.



            "There is absolutely no reason to think that Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, is now or has ever been secretly a Nazi."

            The article itself is actually pretty good and very candid. It highlights what he did, why he did it, how he resisted it, how his resistance affected him, and interestingly enough – how he could have resisted even more.

            But the quote above (from page 2) says enough.

  14. piro4351 says:

    lol the Pope would definately whip Punks skinny ass. who wouldnt? hes a chump.

  15. shanedraper says:

    the pope is pimpin

  16. Ringmaster44 says:

    Good golly people simmer down. Punk made a funny ANgle got offended as hes a diehard holy man. I think back to when Raven crucified the sandman in ecw the night angle came to join ecw and left after being offended by the cool moment. Raven to this day holds that it was a good idea as he should people need to relax.

  17. annil8or4321 says:

    seriously his little twit or whatever it is was funny, was it offensive of course but in this day of social media EVERYONE has the right to voice their opinion no matter who it is, is it going to piss someone off yes but no one can say anything without it rubbing at least one person the wrong way
