Sticks and stones can break my bones, but names will never hurt me. Remember that? We learned that when we were kids. What happened? In this politically correct world we live in it seems the rolls have reversed.
First of all the term, “politically correct” is an oxy-moron in of itself, but that’s another subject all together.
This week a fighter, I repeat a FIGHTER, Nate Diaz made the following comment. “I feel bad for Pat Healy that they took an innocent man’s money away and I think the guy who took the money is the biggest fag in the world.” Now in the article on this story they omitted the word “fag” and replaced it with (homosexual slur). Really, you can’t even use the word the man used when reporting the story. Here is a better question, why is it even a story in the first place?
So the UFC, a fighting organization and UFC president Dana White, the man who became famous on the Ultimate Fighter as the guy who couldn’t say more the 3 words without fuck being one of them fined ($20,000) and suspended (90 days) Nate Diaz for a fighter tweeting that another fighter is a fag. Oh yeah and they launched an internal investigation. Are you kidding me?
This is the statement released by the UFC. “The language used in his tweet was regrettable, offensive and inconsistent with the values and culture of the organization, and is not tolerated.”
Really Dana? Wow, seems hypocritical to me, but what do I know.
One thing I feel pretty certain about is that knowing Nate, he won’t be issue any apologies; nor should he have to.
So Nate I hope you learned a lesson from this. You can go in the cage and beat the fucking piss out of that fag Bryan Caraway, just don’t call him a fag…\
I thing the bottom lines is this.
You can be as HATEFUL as you want to be, just be sure to choose you words carefully….
