Host hurls Tebow ‘Nazi’ remark
Boston Herald ^ | April 24, 2010 | Jessica Heslam

Posted on 04/24/2010 12:02:24 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement

A Boston sports-radio host yesterday likened former Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow’s NFL draft party to a “Nazi rally,” a remark one media observer called an “amazing double standard.”

Fred “Toucher” Toettcher said yesterday on 98.5 The Sports Hub, “It looked like some kind of Nazi rally. . . . So lily-white is what I’m trying to say. Yeah, Stepford Wives.”

Station spokesman Cha-Chi Loprete said the station “received no inquiries regarding” the morning drive-time show and declined further comment. Efforts to reach Toettcher for comment were unsuccessful.

Take notice of how our new socialists are ridiculing and belittling their opponents.

History is repeating itself.

I’m sick of this racist BS. Nobody ever looks at a big group of black people and says “Golly, there are too many black people here. We need white people to make this acceptable.” Not even when the black people are a flash mob who have gathered in Philly to beat the hell out of white women. To hell with these people who want to act like being white is a crime.

“In Massachusetts, there’s a certain subset of the sports fans that are culturally uncomfortable with the Evangelical Christian subculture of football in the South and the Southwest,” Schulman said.

If this clown doesn’t get fired, it’s just more proof of the MSM and their double-standards.

The left was right that race would become an issue once Obama got into office, except it’s the left that’s making race an issue.

I rarely listen to sports radio or watch ESPN. I prefer the “less is more” approach and despise the obsession of what I call “first name-ification” of athletes. Some of these clowns who report sports are nothing more than cheerleaders.

I work with sports writers....every one that I know well is a liberal who thinks Bush they are smarter than right-wing religious conservatives.

The few conservatives that exist in the area are silent, they just keep their thoughts to themselves.

That changes this summer. I’m going to have fun!

Good question. I think it is simply because they are journalism majors who work in the media. Their “beat” is not a factor in shaping who they are.

It’s a church self-selection thang. The Black and White styles of worship are different enough to make Sunday morning more segregated than anything else.

I remember Barry Bonds saying he’d never play for the Red Sox, Boston was too racist for him.

I've expected a media attack on Tim Tebow for quite some time now. Tebow, a "muscular Christian," is the antithesis of what the Old Media must have if they're to continue to garner an audience. He provides a fine example of both character and achievement to our young people, and absolutely no juicy scandals with which to festoon Page Three. He'll never appear as a contestant on "Dancing With The Stars."

Intolerable! He might as well be Sarah Palin! (Say, how good is her throwing arm?)

Reverse discrimination. It is almost a crime now to be white and an excellent athlete. PC run amok. What if he’d said that about a black athlete and claimed it was a Black Panther rally? The SHTF then...

We just had "Black Spring Break" in the Biloxi area. Imagine if someone tried to have a "White Spring Break".

The real deal is that radio stations were getting a lot of calls beforehand to tell us that we better not be racist and arrest any of these kids.

The station I listen to has it's stuff together (FOX Talk Radio 104.9) and let folks know that the only reason the chilluns got into trouble in the first place is from breaking the law with assaults, attempted car jackings and having sex on the hood of a family's vehicle that was stuck in traffic, etc. If they obeyed the law, there was none of that nasty "racism" stuff happening.

Thank you. I just sent Mr. Hannon the following email:

Dear Mr. Hannon,

When can we expect an announcement that you have fired your racist sports announcer who seems to have a problem with too many whites gathering in one spot — particularly if they happen to be Christians?

An apology from him will not be sufficient, any more than it was for Imus.

Thank you.

I guess Christmas at the Vermont-LT household is a nazi gathering as well. Do I really have to apologize for being white now? Or do I need to go out and find some minorities to share my dinner table?

Boston is by far the most racist city in America. I was often stunned by the comments I would hear when I lived there. How any African American or Hispanic could play for the Red Sox or Celtics is beyond me.

I often felt ashamed for the people I found myself surrounded by at work. And these were intelligent, upper middle class folks.

The only fun was when the “diversity” overlords came to town. You could have charged admission to watch these folks squirm.

I loved that scene at the Tebow home. His mother was holding a baby as the Bronco’s selection was announced. I hope Tebow excels in the NFL, along with Jimmy Clausen. At least they behave like proper human beings.

So being "lily white"="Nazi"?

Like the MSNBC on-air team, I suppose.

I had friends who went to Central HS in Litle Rock when it was being integrated ...with the National Guard in the halls.

Twelve years later they lived in a Boston suburb and were appalled at the racism in Boston.

I could not believe nor tolerate the hate for Tebow on a couple of pro football boards I visited over the past few days during the NFL draft. They are very small-minded, condescending people who think they're cool and trendy.
