You’ve got to love Dana White…
Not just for what he’s done for the sport of MMA, but also because, while the rest of the world was afraid to support Donald Trump, he always had the former president’s back.
In fact, Dana White has spoken at both of the RNC conventions when Trump was nominated, always painting the president as a patriot and a true friend of the American people.
During the last convention, White said, “I spoke at this convention four years ago and I’m back because I believe we need President Trump’s leadership now more than ever. Before the pandemic, President Trump built the greatest economy in our nation’s history and created opportunities for all Americans like no one before him. Financial markets hit all-time highs, unemployment was at an all-time low, and we weren’t facing the lawless destruction that now is occurring in a few of our great cities.”
And he’s not wrong.
Most probably don’t know the story about how White and Trump became friends, but back when the world was against the UFC, calling it “human cock-fighting,” the soon-to-be president both supported the sport both in the public eye and financially. When one of their event venues fell through, Trump even provided one for them.
It’s funny how Trump gains the loyalty of those around him simply by being a good and honorable man.
So, it’s safe to say that Dana White is Conservative…hence his response to Disney’s canceling of “Mandalorian” actress and former MMA fighter Gina Carano for her conservative social media posts.
Dana Weighs In
I wrote an article highlighting the ridiculousness of this whole s**tshow recently, so if you want the details of what happened, read the article here.
Now, even though Carano is a former MMA fighter and champion, she never worked for White’s UFC. But because White is the face of the American sport, he was asked to give his thoughts on the incident.
The reporter asked, “Gina Carano, she’s been in the news lately, and I know the UFC’s basically had more of a stance of letting the fighters speak their mind, I was just wondering what your thoughts were on that.”
Dana’s response was short, concise, and to the point.
“Leave Gina alone. You know, we make mistakes, we all make mistakes. For everybody to go in on her…I love how Ariel Helwani made it all about him, such a douche.”
He’s right, we all make mistakes…
But Gina didn’t.
Her point had nothing to do with comparing Conservatives to Jews in Nazi Germany, despite the Left’s best efforts to claim otherwise; rather, Carano’s post was about hate and how dangerous it can be if we let others tell us who we should and shouldn’t accept (again, see my previous article for what she posted).
It’s scary that we can be canceled simply for being against hate.
However, what was interesting was White’s comments to MMA commentator Ariel Helwani, a man that he’s had a contentious relationship with for a few years now.
Calling Helwani a “douche” may be a bit harsh…
But the man DID try to virtue signal and score SJW points with his own statement when he said, “As a Jewish person, and as a human being, it just doesn’t sit well, and I wish she would have never posted that. And quite frankly I wish someone would have talked to her about her social media posts over the past year. Some of them not even political. Just in general, they felt off to me. I am sorry she has gone down this path.”
Which path is that, Ariel?
Being against hate?
Not allowing cancel culture to scare her out of sharing her Conservative beliefs?
Luckily, things are looking up for Gina…
The Daily Wire and Ben Shapiro are coming in HOT with an offer for her to produce and star in her own project with their new film company—but still, the fact that we’re even having to talk about this is infuriating.
This truly IS how socialism, Nazism, and communism take hold…
Stay vigilant, my fellow patriots. This is only the beginning.
“This is just the beginning… welcome to the rebellion.” – Gina Carano
