Posted on 09/14/2009 4:35:06 AM PDT by JNRoberts
As Taylor continued, Kanye interrupted, saying he thought Beyonce's "Single Ladies" video was wrongly overlooked. "Hey Taylor, I'm really happy for you, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time."

Here’s Serena’s Meltdown:
Don’t forget Joe Wilson.
I think that it is due to a certian sense of “its now our time b**ches,” by liberal African Americans.
Thuggery is modus operandi of virtually all Marxist leaders, and you know what they say about merde on an incline with Mr. Gravity as well as the imitative tendencies of a primate with functioning eyesight!
Trash culture has been around for awhile, but it does seem to be picking up steam. When the president of the United States tells his mob to “get in the face” of the opposition, you know the country is seeing a new era.
McEnroe restricted his rants to "You can't be serious" and questions about the officials' eyesight. went Serena far beyond that into personal threats, the seriousness of which is still disputed, but personal threats nonetheless.
Just following his orders....get in their face!!!
Kanye is just a POS plain and simple
Don't forget Barack Obama, who called those who disagree with him liars during his speech to the joint session of Congress.
Serena had a meltdown and I would like to see her suffer with a hefty fine and possibly banned from this event. I am fed up with athletes from every sport, acting like they are in the ghetto.
But Kanye West compared to her?? No way. Never!
You shouldn’t change the title so there aren’t any duplicate postings.
I'm not comparing, and I don't watch tennis so I don't know what Serena has or hasn't done in the past. Maybe she just couldn't take losing and that's what sent her off. Her press conference afterwards was bizarre, and only made her look worse. though.
The title you posted is not the title of the article. What does West have to do with Obama? Except race? These were music awards not a political event. This is a racist thread.
There is definitely enough material around to do a special on how Obama brought street thug behavior to the White House. But it'd probably just be an internet undertaking for good deal of time.
Venus Williams has class. Serena has none.
Kanye has been an idiot since before Obama was in office. This is a new example of it.
Athletes have made violent threats and acted violently since before Obama was in office. Serena is another example of this.
I’m sorry, trying to pin this on Obama is silly.
Joe Wilson told the truth. Mr. Ohaha is a liar and is selling a free lunch. Only trouble is he has to take my money to give it away to his voters.
PS, there are no rules in the senate, they ignore the constitution and it is about time someone told them they are liars. There are rules in tennis.
Don’t forget, also, Michael Jordan using his hall of fame acceptance speech to bash former rivals Bryon Russell and Isaiah Thomas. Although it wasn’t an “outburst,” Jordan airing his old grievances was entirely uncalled for in an otherwise wonderful event. I think it really showed an ugly, ugly arrogance.
Is it? Have you been listening to Obama's rhetoric? But whatever, it does not even approach the 'silliness' of past attempts to blame Oklahoma City on conservative talk radio, and many similar smears of conservatives. And what do you think about the several statements that these tea party protests and other protests could encourage assassins?
As is often said, Obama is 'contributing to an atmosphere' with his personal rhetoric.
“Seems since Obama got elected, Behaving like a THUG is in.”
God said it would be like this, and here’s why:
“The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.” - Psalm 12:8
Seen a vile man exalted in the last few months? Hm?
I agree 100%. If Serena were a baseball manager, her outburst would be considered fairly routine.
Well, orders is orders.
“...I want you to go out and get in your neighbors’ faces...” -barack obama
With NObama in the Oval office, we are targets for all kinds of ‘reparations’.
There needs to be a complete boycott of products of these thugs.
I don’t believe that all of what they produce is bought by black kids. The white kids need to pay more attention to what they are purchasing and giving a voice to.
Well, what about football and basketball coaches, who constantly complain to officials? But what all you apologists blithely dismiss is that Serena crossed the line and made personal threats.
All these managers and coaches are not making personal threats when they complain about officiating.
Dont forget, also, Michael Jordan using his hall of fame acceptance speech to bash former rivals Bryon Russell and Isaiah Thomas. Although it wasnt an outburst, Jordan airing his old grievances was entirely uncalled for in an otherwise wonderful event. I think it really showed an ugly, ugly arrogance”
Boy, oh boy..the local news didn’t show a single bit of what you are describing here.
I am disappointed in MJ, as he was always alot more classy than that, and much more classy than the bulk of today’s NBA ilk.
But what all you apologists blithely dismiss is that Serena crossed the line and made personal threats.
All these managers and coaches are not making personal threats when they complain about officiating.”
Serena definately made threats to the safety of the official. She made one trip over to the official, made a second, and then made a third.
A baseball manager would be thrown out of the game.
I would like to see a hefty fine—$10,000 is tip money for the Williams sisters—and I would like to see her benned for a year.
Someone has to get the message. Soccer had the red cards-
there are many other types of disqualification. Even in Endurance horse riding, riders have been given as much as a 5 year ‘time out’ from a major event for misbehavior.
Well it all evens out eventually. What goes around comes around:
Kanye West Interrupts Obama Speech
I’m glad that you suggested that we remember Joe Wilson—this is a man who had the courage to stand up and say what was in all of our hearts. THE EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES. God bless Joe Wilson!
Like I said, a president's rhetoric, or that of any high profile leader, contributes to an atmosphere, and those who identify closely with that leader can easily be influenced by it. There is no news there. And it has been a common practice in the past for the MSM to attribute behavior of followers or admirers, or just supposed conservatives, to the words and actions of high profile conservatives.
And if cult like behavior begins to surround a particular leader, their influence over admirers can become even greater. Obama is exhibiting in-your-face behavior unlike any president I can recall. W exhibited such behavior on occasion, but not that often. The idea of 'creating an atmosphere' has been used for years, and a case can be made that Obama is creating an atmosphere that encourages in-you-face behavior by his admirers.
Or, he's setting or example many believe he should not be setting.
Laura Ingraham is on this subject, more or less, this morning. She’s discussing Obama’s statements that the protests by conservatives are “coarsening the culture” while he has nothing to say about the things we’re discussing here, and is certainly oblivious to his own coarse rhetoric.
>>>All these managers and coaches are not making personal threats when they complain about officiating.<<<
I have to think, with all the over the top tirades we’ve seen, over the years, once in a while a manager or player makes what could be considered a personal threat against an official or umpire. The difference is, they are generally not picked up on microphones, as in tennis. She certainly should not have said what she said, and deserves some sort of suspension, but I don’t think this was any sort of unprecedented outburst.
I think I might be tougher on Williams if it hadn’t been such a horrnedous call. The lineswoman apparently decided to impose herself on the match, making a call that nobody ever makes in a spot like that, and that was clearly, 100% wrong.
It wasn’t like she simply blew an in/out call, where a call must be made. She went out of her way to make one of the worst calls in sports history. It would be like a basketball referee calling a player for taking too long to shoot a free throw with a chance to send a playoff game into overtime, when he only took 5 seconds, as opposed to the 10 seconds allowed.
I find it rather odd that the USTA would hire a person with on obvious vision problem (the lineswoman wore glasses) for a crucial position, where eyesight is about 90% of the job. (I say this as one who is very nearsighted.) But, that is our politically correct. affirmitave action, society. Kind of reminds me the stuttering announcer in the short story “Harrison Bergeron”.
The way things are going, in 10 or 20 years, we will have the first (literally) blind major league umpire or NBA or NFL offical and it will be hailed as a historic victory for diversity.
I haven't seen any video that would support that statement. The videos are not conclusive. How can you even make that statement? Do you have something to support it? In her bizarre post-match interview, Serena said she probably did commit a foot fault.
And you don't know that personal threats are common. Kids on pee wee teams learn not to make personal threats to officials or opposing players. They know it will get them thrown out of a game, or even suspended for short or long periods of time. The ranting and raving by coaches and managers is about specific calls, or about the officials competency, but all participants know that personal threats will cost them far more than a penalty or technical foul.
Thnx for the link - this is unfreakin’ believable! And yes, the you tube comments are interesting too...love unfiltered you tube...
Kanye West = RACIST
I believe she said something like “I will take this tennis ball and jam it so far down your f’ing throat that...
Yep, I think that is accepted. There were disputes whether she said: "I'll kill you."
Kanye West is the biggest tool on the face of the planet...
Fine, but find a better example than Kanye West. He has always been an idiot. Athletes have always been prone to outbursts. As has been said, most aren’t mic’d. Do you not think a Baseball manager has said what Serena said and worse in the past?
How has Beyonce been immunized from the terrible effects of Obama in all of this? Some people, like Kanye, are trash, others are capable of being being good gracious people. Who the President is has little to no bearing on that. I assure you, if Kanye is still around after Obama is out of office and a Republican is in office he will still be acting like this. Athletes will still be getting mad at calls made during athletic contests.
This is all a reach.
I’m sure there are much better examples out there without a history of this behavior. Find them and use them. Don’t try to make a connection that isn’t there.
I'm not making connections, but when Obama tells supporters to go out there and "get in their face", and when he says in his speech to the joint session that those who oppose his health care plans are liars (when he is lying about so much), then he is contributing to an atmosphere. His entire speech to the joint session had a tone seldom used by presidents.
I've just discussed mostly Serena, and made no specific connection to Obama. But the creating an atmosphere idea has been around for years, and Obama is creating a confrontational atmosphere that is consistent with some of this behavior. Specific connections are irrelevant. His behavior stands on its own.
