Would you say the same about Harry Reid, who recently compared Republican opposition to the pro-slavery politicans in Congress?

You have yet to answer the question, which is hard to understand. A link to a CNN video doesn't account for anything. When it comes to moronic statements lately, I think Harry Reid and Glenn Beck are about one in the same, which is sad.

I don't see the race baiting on either side to be exact. He compared Tiger to another black man who happened to like to date white women. No different than comparing two men who like to date women with the same features whether its big behinds or being short.

Unfaithful according to whom? Were you there? Do you have insider information on their marriage? What if he communicated his sexual needs to her and she never met him halfway...would it still be so cut and dry? Quite a few people who spend a lot of time on the road have an understanding with their partners. This is not a black and white issue if you'll pardon the pun.

He's a guy, we can't resist that sort of temptation, the last thing he was thinking about when getting married is, "Man, I can't wait to get married so I can screw every piece of tail in America." Had those been his thoughts, he made a mistake by getting married.

I can agree with that in principle - but I can't imagine anyone thinking that way, it sounds just comical.

Quoting Jetmatt777 (Reply 40):

According to you. There are all kinds of marriages with all kinds of arrangements. My wife and I are not exclusive and have no desire to be. Not everyone's sexual clocks are in sync 100% of the time and maintaining expectations around that is a completely immature and unrealistic standard.

Got that right - you should see what the pro Japanese golfers get up to over here. Actually you really don't want to know. Not to put too fine a point on it - but generally a good idea to stay away from Japanese sports stars if you're a woman after a faithful man.

Through the lens of Beck's sophomoric powers of deduction, one could argue that OJ and TW are similar. Both are (or were) sports heroes who quite publicly flouted their shattering of that pesky taboo that the late Gene Rodenberry gamely tried to bury when Capt. Kirk kissed Lt. Uhura on the mouth.

Of course, OJ killed two people and tried to haul ass out of town. That and he wasn't exactly at the top of his game when the crimes occurred.

Amid the sludge of faux sanctimony, it's heartening to see that golfers the caliber of Jack Nicklaus have had the class to say that the TW saga is private. And as much of a buzz-kill as that is for us schlubs who secretly long to live vicariously through our favorite celebrities, NIcklaus's take just about sums things up.

The flatulent ramblings of ESPN hacks and on-shift marriage experts notwithstanding, the matter is private. It's none of our business.

As Aaron 747 said,

Quoting Aaron747 (Reply 57):

The race issue does rear its hideous head because of Tiger's tacit proclivity for White chicks.

As Fox Sports columnist Jason Whitlock notes, from there the whole thing takes on a type of missing blonde woman dynamic -- a la Natalee Holloway. And everybody is pretty much off to the races, from TMZ on down.

It's an open secret in showbiz circles that Robert DeNiro likes Black women. But for some reason that just doesn't have the "traction" of Tiger's lust for Swiss-Miss types.

As with OJ, the celebrity media is gorging itself at the trough of that tired old stereotype about the dark-skinned (sexual) athlete tapping fair-skinned women at pleasure.

It reminds me of that riff by Tyler Durden -- Edward Norton's alter ego in Fight Club. Durden (Brad Pitt) tells Norton:

"All the ways you wish you could be, that's me. I look like you wanna look, I fuck like you wanna fuck, I am smart, capable, and most importantly, I am free in all the ways that you are not. "

Indeed, how many White golfers and moralists for-hire secretly pine for the ability to -- paraphrasing an old commercial -- say "I'm Tiger Woods"?

My son plays golf ...he has Nike gear and admires TW ... he know looks at him like a joke. Its terrible ! And Beck is right on ... he is just like OJ ! he let down his fans and it is certainly a media circus beyond beleif.

Raceism ?? I didn't even think about it until I read some of your posts on here. I knew what Beck meant immediately .

Get a life and turn him off if you don't like what he says . Or buy Cas Sunstines book ...he will tell you how we can re-wright the 1st amendment so that you will never have to hear Beck again.

Tiger's off-course antics should have no bearing on a given golfer's study of TW's on-course game. Your son, or any other golfer for that matter, would still benefit from seeking to improve their game by studying TW's (golf) game and that of other masters. The self-help types call it "modeling".

Leaving out the slight detail that Tiger didn't kill two people in a jealous rage and then try to high-tail it out of LA in his friend's SUV. Like I said, through Beck's hare-brained mentality the similarities between the two will of course be sharper.

Some Liberal operative must have cut-and-paste Rush Limbaugh's diarrheal riff about TW and "the Black mentality", which he described as "terrible" into the broadcast. No doubt Rush actually said: "Well, that Tiger Woods certainly is a credit to his race!"  Big grin

These analogies are getting stretched further and further away from reality here on a.net.

Bar none, Beck was stirring up controversy, and using race as the foil. Any comparison of TW to OJ is just as stupid as comparing a white guy that dates white women to Hitler. Neither Tiger, OJ, Hitler, or that white guy who dates white women is defined by whom they date.

This exchange has piqued my interest and I have been following it before chiming in. I see your profile says you are from Connecticut and under 20 years old. I am in California but grew up in the ranch lands of eastern Oregon. There is a very strong conservative talk radio base there. I have my own opinions on how that came to be, but my point for this exchange is this: There are plenty of people all over the country that listen to conservative talk radio that are anything but the way you described. In fact, those that you described are in the very, very, very tiny minority. Being a "liberal" myself (one that disagrees with the Republicans more than 75% of the time), I and many "liberals" listen to conservative talk radio more out of curiosity; to see exactly what the right is saying. I would even venture to guess that those that.... how did you put it?

Quoting FuturePilot16 (Reply 34):
I'm smart, unlike a majority of their audience who sit in their basement armed with 7 guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition listening to these nutjobs.

I would even say that "liberals" listening to conservative radio far outnumber those who you describe. Oh, don't get me wrong. There are a few conservative wackos like that; sitting in their basements with canned food and armed to the teeth. But, not as many as you would think.

While I, personally, do not agree with conservative talk radio, there are a few hosts (darn few, IMO) who are intelligent enough to know what they are talking about and can make enough people believe what they believe so they can sell air time. In my opinion, Beck is NOT one of those. He is simply selling air time by being a wing nut.

Nothing would make me happier than too not here another word about his life. Tiger is a very charitable giving guy , and I believe a very class act all the way around. I always enjoy watching his after round press conferences ... even the most mundane question he seems to take serious and for the most part replies with class.

Beck didn't make the comparison because they are both athletes that date white women. There are plenty of non-imfamous people he could have compared Tiger to that would have made a better fit. Just like I could compare you to plenty of white males who served in the army without picking McVeigh. The only reason someone would say you're like McVeigh would be to slander you.

Glenn Beck is an idiot! Period! Americans should be ashamed of him. What's sad, is that a lot of people actually take his crap literally. He fits right in about with the rest of the wackos at Fox News.

Watching Fox News is like watching Jerry Springer. You know it's crap, you know it's trash, you know they're lies, but hey, it's entertaining to watch, just for the pure stupidity.

I'm not political... especially here on A.net, but that man (Glenn Beck) is the most annoying character on TV, right up there with Oprah and other racists..

Glenn Beck is an idiot! Period! Americans should be ashamed of him. What's sad, is that a lot of people actually take his crap literally. He fits right in about with the rest of the wackos at Fox News.

So, then you're the same, right? You're just like Timothy McVeigh? Should we be worried about you?

In that I'm a white male that served in the army, yes. Worried about me? Are you worried about every white male that served in the army? I only know of one other that you seemed to be obsessively worried about.

"Veteran" Issues Threat At Town Hall

Should we be worried about you obsessing about veterans?

Quoting D L X (Reply 77):
Dude, come on now. You know good and well that the only reason to compare someone to someone imfamous is because you want that person to be compared to the imfamous person's IMFAMY, not their dating patterns.

Why would you have to compare Woods to anyone famous or infamous? He is famous, and now infamous, in his own right.

Quoting D L X (Reply 77):
Beck didn't make the comparison because they are both athletes that date white women. There are plenty of non-imfamous people he could have compared Tiger to that would have made a better fit

Like?

Quoting D L X (Reply 77):
Just like I could compare you to plenty of white males who served in the army without picking McVeigh.

Yes, and I'm just like Gen. Eisenhower in that I'm a white male veteran who likes white women. The difference is nobody really knows me unlike Tiger Woods.

Quoting D L X (Reply 77):
The only reason someone would say you're like McVeigh would be to slander you. Do you really disagree?

They wouldn't be slandering me if they were comparing my status as a veteran and a white male. If they compared me to him saying I was a domestic terrorist then yes they would be slandering me as if they compared Woods by saying he was a murderer like OJ Simpson.

Quoting D L X (Reply 77):
And you make light about ME talking like a lawyer.

So you can call Beck a race baiter with impunity? We're all just supposed to go along with it because Larry said so? The fact that others have had far more caustic statements about Woods, people of his own race for that matter, is irrevelant? If you want to call Beck a race baiter to make him look bad then you need to call Joyner one as well but it took you how many posts to acknowledge that?

Yes because you are trying to impugne Beck as a race baiter yet you sought to give Joyner a pass on the same kind of humor. It goes to show that if Beck is bad in this matter, so are many other media types to include black entertainers. It proves that the race baiting charge is kind of weak unless you want to admit that others, including at least one black person, are doing exactly the same thing.

Um, you're not the only one here that served your country. The "veteran" that was being discussed when you quoted me was doing something extremely dishonorable. You'd know that if you read the thread.

Quoting DXing (Reply 80):
In that I'm a white male that served in the army, yes. Worried about me? Are you worried about every white male that served in the army?

No! And that's the whole damn point, DXing! It is ridiculous to compare you to McVeigh, just because you're both white and veterans. You're not infamous, and the only reason someone would compare you to him would be to suggest that you have done or are destined to do something like McVeigh did.

You can see that, right?

Quoting DXing (Reply 80):

Like?

Wilt Chamberlain. Kobe Bryant. People who are famous black athletes (if you are too narrow minded to compare him to white people) who were well known for their filandering. Kobe is especially apt since his diddling lost him an incredible amount of sponsorships, as Tiger seems to be so destined.

You're really grasping here, which is common. Let's keep it simple just for you:

Why would they bring up McVeigh when talking about you?

There are two types of answers. One makes you look stupid, and the other makes you look humble. Pick your poison.

Quoting DXing (Reply 80):
If they compared me to him saying I was a domestic terrorist then yes they would be slandering me as if they compared Woods by saying he was a murderer like OJ Simpson.

This is idiotic.
If no one knew jack ish about you, and someone asked "What's DXing like?" And the person said "Oh, he's just like Timothy McVeigh," what the hell do you think you would think?

Again, two types of answers.

Quoting DXing (Reply 82):
If you want to call Beck a race baiter to make him look bad then you need to call Joyner one as well but it took you how many posts to acknowledge that?

What does Joyner have to do with Beck? Why do you bring him up? Does answering your question in the affirmative somehow make Beck's comments okay? What's with all your irrelevant "points?" Why do you bring up Ollie North when talking about the Salahis? Do you have ADHD, DXing? Serious question.

Quoting DXing (Reply 84):

Quoting D L X (Reply 85):
You can see that, right?

I see you completely missing the point of Beck's comparison and trying to have it encompass much more than the specific reference he was making. OJ Simpson played professional footbal, Woods plays (played) golf. No comparison.

Quoting D L X (Reply 85):
Why are you asking me? I'm not the one that compared Woods to anyone. You should be asking Beck that.

Beck's comparison was on a specific. Your comparison, me to McVeigh was not on any specific but on a generality. I corrected you and you don't like being corrected, that much has been demonstrated several times over.

Quoting D L X (Reply 85):
Wilt Chamberlain. Kobe Bryant.

These are "non-infamous" people? Sorry, but both names are fairly well known in their own right.

Quoting D L X (Reply 85):
You're really grasping here, which is common.

I'm left grasping as your argument, makes no sense since you can't grasp the basics of Beck's comparison.

Quoting D L X (Reply 85):
Again, two types of answers.

If I say Tiger Woods to someone, do I need to use someone else famous for them to form an opinion? That's where your argument died. What Beck did, incorrectly as it turns out, was make a specific comparison.

Quoting D L X (Reply 85):
Serious question.

You decided to join in the conversation. Now you don't like the direction it is going in. So stay out and save yourself the angst.

Glenn Beck does not make "specific references." He makes veiled references to the sinister so people like you can play babe in the woods.

Right. And you are you with a straight face actually going to say that Football is what he is most known for?

On that we can agree. I don't listen to him and what little I do see of him, his humor does nothing for me.

Quoting D L X (Reply 88):

I already said long ago in this thread that if Beck were comparing Woods to Simpson as being a murderer then Beck would be wrong. But they are (were) both professional sportsmen. No denying that.

Quoting D L X (Reply 88):
That is a lie.

I finally got around to listening to the OP's linked piece and I disagree. Not only did he mention Simpson he mentioned Kobe as well. As usual the humor wasn't funny, but it wasn't race baiting or bigoted either.

Quoting D L X (Reply 88):

Adultry is not a crime? As to Chamberlin I don't know enough about him to comment.

??? You said that if you mentioned me and somone said what's he like and then you menitoned McVeigh what would that person then think of me. My reply was, and is, why would you have to mention anyone else if you mentioned Tiger Woods, he's already well known and most people already have an opinion. Mentioning someone like Arnold Palmer wouldn't add anything.

Quoting D L X (Reply 88):
Care to answer it?

I already did but as usual since it isn't the answer you demand to hear you dismiss it.
