I was actually listening to the show driving back from Tennessee when he made the comments.

The comparison was moronic  but he didn't really compare the firings to the holocaust. 

He was referring to 1 particularly vile act committed by the Nazi's as it pertained to forced survival.

He happened to learn about it while visiting the holocaust museum.

I was never really a fan of his on air, so no major loss, but if people would really listen to what others are saying, and try to understand the thoughts they're trying to convey. Instead of looking for a reason to be offended the world would be a better place.

It's getting to the point that no one can offer any kind of opinion without someone getting their feelings hurt.

 

Ridiculous statements. Even if the point that people should not "sell outrage" has merit, you are painting all outrage with the same brush, which is as blind as a jack *** who had his eyes poked out by his farmer and has to live the rest of his life by scent.

They need to start over and hire pros.  They must be tightwads to have the crew they have.

Someone needs to tell Hugh that "Dis" and "Dat" are not acceptable to say as a professional radio host.

Ok let's assume your comment has merit.

When every faux pas or misstatement is treated as a reason to label someone or have them fired because of hurt feelings it gets to the point that sane people reject the "outrage".

Is all outrage equivalent ? No, but that was kind of my point. These days even the stupidest of outrages are treated as though they're equal.

I guess your blind donkey is the one searching for offenses, and finding them under every rock.

Your argument is that using the holocaust as a foil for front office personnel decisions is definitely appropriate. That's your argument.

That is not my argument, and if you read my original post. You would not even make such a ridiculous statement.

1. He didn't compare the firings to the holocaust.

2. The comparison was to 1 vile act that the Nazi's perpetrated, and even then not as it pertained to the Nazi's but to their victims.

3. It was moronic like most of Stan's "takes" over the last year, and I won't miss him on my radio. 

Were you listening in when he made his comments ? Or is your opinion based on what was "reported" ?

I'm sure he felt safe in using a Nazi analogy, as that term has been tossed around more in the last 2 years than in the previous 50.

The fact is he could have made the exact same analogy without ever throwing out the word Nazi or holocaust. So is it the word Nazi that's offensive ? If so I expect about 6 major news channels to lose audience and funding and 100's of reporters to be fired. 

He mentioned the holocaust in explaining he learned about this act when visiting the holocaust museum ? Is it the word holocaust that's offensive ?

This is why I said listen to what people are trying to say and not necessarily the words coming out of their mouths. It was a stupid and twisted analogy, but if taken in context there was no reason to be offended.

No man, but a joke is a joke. Why is it like impossible to have a sense of humor.. Did you even hear what was said? 

Anyone making light of this should please have the decency and courage to read to the end of this reply  

It was not a joke.  

Did you read what he actually said?

It was an analogy.   

A really horrible contrived misguided failure of an analogy.  

I appreciate that he was at a Holocaust memorial learned about this   I know he is not remotely antiemetic.

But if you are going to use something like this, it should be necessary and a perfect analogy.   

He felt described in disgusting graphic detail how human beings were tortured to death in order to explain something that’s happening to a football team.  And it doesn’t explain it at all.

Last summer I visited a synagogue in Prague.  It is now a Holocaust memorial.  The names of every Jewish Czech murdered is written on the walls.  

I have a very unique last name.  At least in America, if you’ve got it,  you are my family.   

In a wall in this Synagogue in Prague, along with hundreds of thousands of other names, was MY FAMILY NAME.  

I don’t need some radio hack using what might have been my ancestors tortured last moments on this earth to attempt (and fail) to make a football analogy.  

But I do need every single one of you making light of it to think very hard about what those moments were like and, most critically, I need you to go **** yourselves. 

As for Norfleet, ProTio; You know how it MIGHT be possible for White folks to use the N word appropriately but it is almost never worth the risk?   Same thing for Holocaust references.  You better be certain you are on solid ground and it still probably isn’t worth the risk.

I’m assuming this thread got moved by the mods.   

It is astounding.   

I swear to God, I’m now thinking WFW is one of the smart and decent ones.
