BOB HOPE’S WWII NAZI COLLECTION IS COMING ON THE MARKET

Now that Dolores Hope has passed away, Bob Hope’s massive collection of WWII and Nazi memorabilia worth millions will be sold, and collectors are already licking their chops. The collection has long been housed in a vault in Palm Springs, and it’s legendary among knowledgeable dealers. Hope was in Europe performing with the USO for years, and he was given many souvenirs by the allied forces at the end of WWII. These included personal property confiscated from captured Nazis- – uniforms, medals, weapons, I.D.cards – even Hitler’s stationery. Some of the rare articles – like Hope’s Nazi decanter, were left behind in Hitler’s bunker after allied troops overran it. Bob was certainly never a Nazi sympathizer, but he saw the historic value of the items he collected. Dolores didn’t want to deal with the valuable collection while she was alive even though Jesse James, among others, made attempts to buy it. (Above, Bob and Dolores in 1939 in the S.S, Normandie on their way to Europe.)

    Patrick, I responded to your acsusations in the Portia/Ellen post so please read it. Don’t know what I ever did to piss you off, but you’re barking up the wrong tree dude. I don’t comment here anymore and won’t be in the future. Peace out.

    Pippa, you are truly a bona fide dumb ass to make a comment like that. Now on to more important matters, it’s a shame that the Hope’s daughter, Linda, can’t arrange for the collection to go to the World War II Museum in New Orleans, which was created by historian Stephen Ambrose, author of “Band of Brothers.” To sell it off in pieces to the highest bidder virtually guarantees much of the collection will end up in the hands of Nazi enthusiasts like Mrs. Sandra Bullock, uh, I mean, Jesse James.

    His face creeps me out.

    Please. ENOUGH with the “Nazi” demonization/fetishizing and assorted BS.

    Too many examples of just as bad or WORSE thinking in the world TODAY:

    Janet “Big Sis” Napolitano ring a bell? Or Michael Chertoff? WAKE. THE. FUCK. UP. ALREADY.

    Oh, but what the hell—something nice: Dolores was quite pretty; looks like Patricia Neal in this pic.

    NO, do NOT let Jesse James or any other idiot Nazi sympathizer get their hands on these items so they can idolize them!

    Hope was an agent for the British and a sex slave handler here in the U.S. If you want to research further, check out Bryce Taylor’s book “Thanks for the Memories.” All those lovely girls that he took on USO tours were Monarch slaves. The abuse was monumental.
