Host hurls Tebow ‘Nazi’ remark
Critics slam Hub sports radio’s double standard

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.

Dan Gainor, vice president for business and culture for the Media Reseach Center, a Washington, D.C.-based media watchdog group, said it’s “stunning” that Toettcher didn’t lose his job.

“It’s an amazing double standard,” Gainor said. “The left has decided to hate Tim Tebow for nothing more than the fact that he’s a good guy who tries to live an ethical and religious life.”

Conservatives have been repeatedly accused of racism for opposing President Obama’s initiatives, while conservative talk show hosts often face demands that they apologize or be fired for tasteless remarks.

In 2007, shock jock Don Imus was fired by CBS Radio - which owns WBZ-FM - after making racial slurs about black players on a women’s college basketball team.

Boston University political expert Thomas Whalen said these kinds of comments are “almost inevitable.”

“Civil discourse in this country now is at such a new low that it doesn’t matter if you’re on the left or the right,” Whalen said.

Tebow, who played for the University of Florida Gators and was drafted Thursday by the Denver Broncos, has been mocked for his strong Christian faith and for appearing with his mother in a controversial pro-life Super Bowl ad. In March, Tebow dined in the North End with Patriots [team stats] coach Bill Belichick, setting off a firestorm of speculation the Patriots might draft him.

Bruce Schulman, a Boston University political history professor, called Toettcher’s remarks “tasteless and inappropriate.”

“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.

A Boston sports radio host is yapping about a gathering being too white? Has he ever looked in the stands at Fenway Park?

Tebow can't win...
That's there is to it.
The guy will have to prove those idiots wrong on the field, even then, they would still find something to bitch about.

The guy is a superstar. The Denver Broncos stole the spotlight of the draft.
People hated it that Tebow was picked in the first round. They all had that look of a kid who's got his toys stolen on Christmas day
The experts are pissed nobody listened to their ironclad proof that Tebow is not an NFL QB.
I love it!

A white guy has a lot of white relatives. Shocking.

As a descendant of Norwegian immigrants I guess that makes me a super racist? We're all whiter than Tebow and his family.

What an idiot.

Oh, and all the black draft picks had a very creamy complexion to their draft parties.

For the most part the only white guy at the black players parties (if there even was a white guy) was the player's agent.

Call me racist.

Well, Tebow's biological family does seem to be composed of a lot of white people. It could mean something. It might just be anecdotal.

I have no problem with this. Except that the agents were all Jews which you missed, but otherwise solid post.

as of right now... they are just as much right as you feel they are wrong. Tebow hasn't proved a thing as to being an NFL QB.

When you think about it, why do you think he insists on wearing #15? What's the number 5, if it's not half of a swastika?

People would be shocked to find themselves at a nazi rally every Christmas and Thanksgiving. BTW, did you see Dez Bryant's black panther rally?

The only whites I saw at the black players' draft parties were their girlfriends.

Oh snap, I'm a racist, but check the tapes I'm right.

Boston is historically the most racist and least tolerant city in the country, funny how that works.

Makes me like Tebow more.

Was it Nazi or KKK? Hard to tell.

They're tricky that way.

That must have made Tebow's agent really uncomfortable, being a Jew at a Nazi rally and all.

What a douchebag?

Can we keep sports and politics separate please?

Sports unites us and politics divides us. Bad idea to merge the two.

I can understand why people have trouble with young white folks who aren't wearing little skull beanies and che t-shirts or silly little white-guy dreads in a way cool dreadlock-holder hat. At a minimum, if they're white, they should have the common decency to act self-conscious about it and be really concerned about global warming and polar bears. Anything else is scary Nazi stuff.
