At some point, people in sports will finally quit invoking Godwin's Law and comparing stuff to the Holocaust.

That point isn't now, though, because Tiki Barber, in the newest issue of Sports Illustrated, compared his struggles of hiding from the New York media post-affair to the struggles of Anne Frank. a German-Jewish teenager who was forced into hiding during the Holocaust.

Barber, in an interview with Jon Wertheim, describes how he and girlfriend Traci Johnson went to agent Mark Lepselter's house in New Jersey and hid in the attic following the reports of Barber's infidelity in April 2010.

"Lep's Jewish," Barber said, "and it was like a reverse Anne Frank thing."

Yes, this is the portion of the post where you either shake your head and stare agape at the page.
Tiki Time?

Of course, as Wertheim writes, this is the perfect example of Tiki Barber: "he has the wit and smarts to make an Anne Franke allusion and the artlessness to liken himself -- and adulterer trying to elude gossip columnists -- to a Holocaust victim."

It's pretty insane, really, that Barber would think it's okay to make that "joke."

Even though nothing about Tiki is that surprising at this point -- he left his wife for an intern while his wife was pregnant and then came out of reitrement at the age of 35 even though the lockout was looming -- his reference to Frank is just crass, unnecessary and completely inappropriate.

The ultimate irony, though, is that if Tiki was still a broadcaster, he'd probably have been fired over this. Actually, that might not be ironic so much as it's a "logical conclusion."

Tiki Barber compares himself to Anne Frank

In my years on this planet, I've heard and read COUNTLESS of Brinson's fellow Jews call this or that Gentile "another Hitler," for pretty much any matter, often trivial, almost never even rising to the level of markedly evil. It's long been a fine, cheap rhetorical device for a great many of Will's fellow ethnics and co-religionists to Mau Mau the rest of us
I think you might have showed a little more skin than necessary there, jack sprat. One need not be a member of the Chosen People to make a frivolous Holocaust reference, but it's good to see someone standing up against the International Jewish Conspiracy for the rest of us Gentiles.

Tiki Barber compares himself to Anne Frank

I have visited Anne Franks attic in Amsterdam and I'm sure Tiki Barber's agent's attic was much more comfortable then where Anne Frank and several other individuals were forced to stay to avoid detection from the Nazi and certain death. It amazes me to see how little people know about what happened to the Jews during World War II. Tiki seemed like a smart man but to hide out with his girlfriend to avoid detection from his wife is both embarrassing and shameful.

Tiki take a visit to Amsterdam and avoid all the coffee shops with their various drugs and visit Anne Frank's house. You might learn something about life and how we should treat one another. How we should treat our wife's, you dim wit.

Maybe read Anne Frank's diary-the Nazi finally found the attic hideaway and took all the valuables from the attic and threw away the what they thought was trash "Anne Frank's Diary"--But in the end the Diary was the most important thing left. Tiki read it and learn a bit about History!!

Wait, Anne Frank was black?


Meanwhile, of course, the language police have never been seen out in force demanding that Mr. Brinson and his relatives cease referring to the rest of us as unpeople fashioned from clay by the use of Luciferian magic. ('Goyim', meaning the rest of us, being the same word as 'golem', with the aforementioned definition, no matter what a bunch of lying linguists will insist.)

Goyim and Golem aren't the same... I think you mean GOYLEM and Golem.  Goyim is the plural form of Goy.
