I used to have a lot of respect for UFC fighter Ronda Rousey, but when she endorsed socialist Bernie Sanders for President this past week, all of that went out of the window. Unfortunately, the “Bern” mystique didn’t help Rousey much, as she was summarily beat down and knocked out for her first loss just days after the endorsement was announced.
It appears Rousey was following Sanders’ socialist lead and immediately redistributed her championship belt to challenger Holly Holm last Saturday night. Unlike most socialists, who don’t want to live by their own miserable socialist standards, it seems Rousey realized her 12 wins and championship title were plenty, and decided to “spread the wealth.” And she got really bloodied doing it.
If you think Rousey’s endorsement of Sanders made her sound a bit punch-drunk, read her entire quote from the interview, wherein she reveals her choice for President in 2012. It will make you wonder if she has any brains left in her head:
I’m voting for Bernie Sanders, because he doesn’t take any corporate money. I don’t think politicians should be allowed to take money for their campaigns from outside interests.
If he doesn’t win against Hillary, then I’ll probably vote for a third party again. To be honest, in 2012 I was against both candidates and so I just picked any third party because I thought if more people voted for third parties then they’d have to take third parties seriously.
I voted for Roseanne (Barr) last time. Mostly I went in to vote for all the state and local things. I was so unimpressed with the whole presidential campaign that I picked whatever third party I saw, and I saw Roseanne and thought, ‘That’s awesome.’ But I’m really pulling for Sanders this time. I hope it works out.
It seems odd that a person who believes in the benefits of personal accomplishment and competition would support a socialist. Perhaps liberal Hollywood has twisted her worldview and deprived her of her common sense. Hopefully that kick to the head by Holly Holm knocked some sense back into her.
