Nike sends wrong message with new Tiger Woods ad

Nike raised some eyebrows yesterday when it released an ad on its Facebook page in the wake of Tiger Woods regaining his world No. 1 ranking on Monday. As is Nike’s custom, the ad was overtly simple, and the message was abundantly clear:

“I want to talk about a Nike ad from Tiger Woods,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “That’s the ad? Winning takes care of everything?”

“The implication being that it wipes out everything previously,” Pat said.

Woods experienced a spectacular fall from grace in late 2009 that involved a car accident, admissions of infidelity, a divorce, and the loss of his No. 1 ranking to name a few, but Nike continued to stand by the golfer, presumably because they drew a line between his personal indiscretions and the professional star power he still offered in the sports’ world. This new ad, however, seems to glorify Woods’ behavior by implying that winning fixes everything.

“That is the problem with our country. That is the problem with our businesses,” Glenn said. “Having Tiger Woods as your spokesperson, that's your deal… But then to run an ad that says, ‘Winning takes of care of everything,’ now I'm anti Nike. Now I'm like, what? So really it's all about the money. That’s it. It's only about the money and only about winning.”

The interesting thing about the Tiger Woods’ saga is that despite all that has transpired, a lot of people find it difficult not to root for him on the golf course. “It's a shocking approach. Because you're right, people looked at Tiger Woods – he had this big thing. Obviously it blew up. He's had a long road back. He's starting to play better,” Stu explained. “Pat and I talked about this on the Pat & Stu show yesterday, that, for whatever reason, I always feel the urge to root for him. I don't know why. I can't describe why I want to root for him.”

In this particular situation, Glenn takes bigger issue with Nike than with Woods. Pat pointed out that Nike’s target audience is children and young adults who want to be seen wearing their sneakers and sports’ gear, which makes the message of ‘winning fixes everything’ even more inappropriate.

“Imagine if this was GE or Lehman Brothers,” Glenn said. “Ok, Lehman Brothers is doing all these horrible, underhanded things, and they fall apart. And then Lehman Brothers comes back, and they haven't changed their problems. But you have this commercial, set in the boardroom, and the guy stands up and says, ‘Our corporate profits are bigger than they've ever been. Lehman Brothers: Winning Takes Care of Everything.’”

“In that case it would probably be ‘Profit Takes Care of Everything,’” Stu said. “I don’t think anyone would accept that.”

“Profit is winning. Winning is profit. When it comes to Tiger Woods, winning is profit. Winning is profit for Nike. It is obscene,” Glenn said. “That's the problem with our nation. And as Pat said, it's aimed at the youth. It's aimed at the youth. It's aimed at the next generation.”

While Nike is by no means a progressive company, this incident touches on an ever-growing problem–progressives are targeting America’s youth.

“The youth are the most important group to get. If you don't get the youth, you lose… And when I'm talking youth, I'm not talking college. I'm talking people in the fourth grade,” Glenn concluded. “If you don't get the youth, you will not be able to win this battle.”

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
