(Forget Mandy Moore, but Kim Kardashian? Now there’s a role model we can all support!)
In what is undoubtedly a new low for the hypocritical, sciolistic dingbats behind the anti-UFC machine known as The Culinary Union, a video was recently released attacking the UFC’s sweetheart, Mandy Moore, as a result of her long time ties with the promotion. Beautiful, innocent, harmless Mandy Moore. Using the same blissfully ignorant and fact-less approach as fellow propaganda pushers The April and Wayne Show, The Union’s newest video is little more than a two minute smear campaign aimed at the UFC, using footage of everything from Dana White’s rant against Loretta Hunt to Rampage Jackson’s near impregnating of a certain CP reporter as “evidence” that Ms. Moore (and any other UFC proponent, for that matter) is unfit to be a role model for our children. IT MAKES TOTAL SENSE, YOU GUYS.
For those of you who are not familiar with The Culinary Union, allow us to give you a little background. The Culinary Workers Union, Local 226 of Las Vegas, Nevada is the organization that has been a thorn in the UFC’s side for the past few years now, and for all the wrong reasons. They are best known for both leading the fight to ban MMA in New York and attempting to influence the Nevada State Athletic Commission to pass an “MMA Bill of Rights” in Nevada. They were also more than partially responsible for noted ignoramus Bob Reilly’s rise to the New York State Assemblyman chair, an atrocity in and of itself that has justly earned them the ire of MMA proponents nationwide.
Using such ludicrous arguments as “The UFC promotes violence against women, gays, etc.” and backing such “clever” smear websites as unfitforchildren and unfitforprimetime, The Culinary Union has hid beneath the false guise of social responsibility in an effort to mask the fact that their true dispute with the UFC stems from the Fertitta owned, anti-union Station Casinos, which TCU has been trying to unionize for some time now. In other words, The Culinary Union is basically a group of pretentious wolves in sheeps clothing who have the nerve to pull the ethics card on the UFC (and anyone associated with it) while simultaneously using unethical bordering on libelous means to achieve their results. Results that they only chase after because of a completely unrelated gripe they hold with the owners of the UFC.
And now they’ve gone after Mandy Moore.
In the words of Hubert J. Farnsworth: “I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.”
I’d like to make one thing clear; the words used by Dana White were, and still often are, completely inappropriate for a man of his level to be making. The same goes for FoGriff’s rape tweet and basically anything Rampage Jackson has done in his career outside of fighting. But claiming that Moore is supporting the somewhat crass tendencies of DW and other fighters simply by supporting the sport in general is beyond ridiculous. By that logic, any fan of the NFL is an advocate for murder, dog fighting, and statutory rape, because clearly we are all mindless drones whose belief systems go hand in hand with that of the average athlete/promoter. What I’m saying is, you should all be ashamed.
