Hope speeches, but that too doesn't hold any power anymore.

Funny thing about Kennedy saying ich bin ein Berliner:

In Germany the jelly doughnut is known as a Berliner since it became famous in Berlin bakeries, and carries a neutral gender in language. So Kennedy actually said, "I am a jelly doughnut."


He should have said "Ich bin eine Berliner."

Sorry if this starts the political nonsense, but as a 21 year old, the best speaker I have seen is by far Barack Obama. Hoping that his best is yet to come after he's freed up a bit in a second term without having to worry about reelection.



Man he looks 15 years older than he did in '07. Too bad he said something about closing Guantanamo here, giving opposers a reason to discredit the greater message.

I am not an African American but I can relate to them most in the struggles they face in this world.

Malcom X was a man of pure wisdom and strength not scared to move forward.

My favorite would have to be "The Dictator" speech by Charlie Chaplin.

This is my vote.

I know it's from a movie, but it's just as raw and powerful.

That Chaplin speech was great. Always wondered if Hitler's mustache was inspired by Chaplin. Didn't realize fictional speeches were in play here, so a couple comic speeches:

Alderman Mays Gilliam:


Dwight Schrute:

Yeah, it's an epic speech. Although it is from a fictional/light hearted movie, Chaplin was exiled from America because of it.





Because of the following speech, from his movie "The Great Dictator, Charlie Chaplin was sentenced by his own art community and exiled from his home of 40 years, in Los Angeles, California. His crime? He "violated the Artist Code & departed from his mission of comedy." That's not funny Charlie!

His speech was considered political, and he had to be silenced. He was accused of being a member of the Communist party, and was subsequently "blacklisted" by the film industry, during the McCarthy Era. He was denied a return visa, disallowing him to re-enter the USA, in 1952.
