White blasts jackass Boston politician

 

The phrase 'Banned in Boston' is a mark of shame on the city. From the late 19th century through the mid-1960's some of the nation's greatest literary works, motion picture, and plays were prohibited from distribution or exhibition, including:
Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman (1881)
H. L. Mencken's The American Mercury magazine (1926, Mencken was actually arrested for it)
Elmer Gantry by Sinclair Lewis (1927)
The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway (1927)
Oil! by Upton Sinclair (1927, served as the basis for the 2007 film There Will Be Blood)
Mosquitoes by William Faulkner (1927)
A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway (1929)
Strange Fruit by Lillian Smith (1944, an interracial romance novel)
Wake Up Little Susie by The Everly Brothers (song, 1957)
Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs (1965)

And it isn't over.

Boston City Council President Steven Murphy, in an attempt to top banning Wake Up Little Susie for inanity, is trying to get Boston to ban anyone under 18 from attending the UFC. The proposal will not affect Saturday's fight, but is endangering the return of the UFC to Boston any time soon.

UFC president Dana White put Murphy on blast.

"The ball-kicking continues, even once we get here," White told MMAjunkie.com. "This Murphy guy. You elect a politician to hopefully go out and bring in jobs, create revenue in your city, bring in events that bring revenue to your city. This guy comes out and he's saying all this s--- like '18 and under' and all this other stuff they're doing to us. Then sure enough, this hearing, 25 of the Culinary Union members are there. And this guy busts out a video of Chael Sonnen talking about Anderson Silva in Brazil. First of all, this is the fight business. This isn't the nice business. This is the fight business.

"And when people ask me about it, I'm like, 'Wait a minute. We're in Boston, aren't we? Don't the Patriots play here? F---ing Aaron Hernandez just murdered somebody and possibly murdered two other people. Are the Patriots going to get chased out of town now? Are they going to do 18 and under?'"

"They pulled this whole social security bull---t on us first. How about f---ing hockey? Hockey players are from Russia, Czechoslovakia, Canada and all these other places..."

"There are people here tonight from Brazil, Mexico, Australia, California, Canada. There's people staying in hotels, eating in restaurants, shopping in malls. They're creating revenue for the city of Boston. It's just f---ing crazy."

"This guy's a complete hypocrite and a total jackass. This Murphy guy is a jackass. So what he's going to do is do this thing, and then we leave and don't come back to Boston. So now we hold our event down in Connecticut. Right?"

"I love this city. I lived here for almost 10 years. I don't know. I wish I could do an event here more, but these guys are making it hard to do."

"It's going to be a while."

Shitting on politicians in a public setting will only gain more of them as enemies for Dana White.

Never fight a war on two fronts. Some anti MMA and some pro union politicians can puff their chest because NY still hasn't legalized it. They can cite that a top market like NY supports their stance.Once NY falls, nobody with any power will dig their feet in. They'll flip flop and claim MMA brings in much appreciated revenue. The ones who still oppose it will just be noise.

The CU/politicians are no longer after station casinos they are after Dana White and he doesn't seem to get it.

It's laughable to think that this will even pass. Boston doesn't pass a chance to make extra money. Though the UFC barely comes here anyways, so it would probably go unnoticed.

to play devil's advocate:  take some of the millions they spend on NY lobbyists and spread it to bean town to fight this?  he's basically conceding defeat here and u better believe a few champagne corks were popped at the CU. ironically, not the first time gangsters chased dana out of boston
