Now we know why Markus has disappeared

Postby Pansy Puff » 11 Sep 2018, 21:59

So why are white supremacist groups forming fight clubs and MMA promotions? The answer lies in the violent nature of the sport and their ability to thrive within it. Over the years, fighters with links to the far-right have been involved in some of the world’s most recognizable promotions, including the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and Strikeforce. UFC fighter Donald Cerrone and former fighter Joe Brammer were sponsored by Hoelzer Reich, a far-right brand known for propagating extremist symbols. The brand was banned by the UFC in 2009. Four years later, welterweight Benjamin Brinsa was accused by German media of maintaining ties to extremist groups in his native country, while his gym was accused of sheltering neo-Nazi fighters. He was later released by the UFC before making his official debut but did not struggle to find professional fights in Russia.

On the converse, Mark is a huge hoops and NBA fan, a league where 75% of the players are black.

Marcus left because many of you were inexplicably cruel to him.

Not guilty, m'lud.

I've been wrongly accused of being several other posters in the past - most memorably someone who Samoaner took a dislike to on FB despite my never having had an FB page - but Markus is a first.

As white supremacists are most definitely not "a great bunch of lads" to quote our late lamented friend, hope you're not implying that I'm some kind of KKKer or John Bircher, btw. Cause if you are there'll be a big burning cross on your front lawn come sundown, pardner.

On different levels it's a shame he's gone though!

I thought Markus was a kindly soul despite his naive academic interest in the far right

He talked an awful load of rubbish but he made me laugh and I miss him too.

You can have naive beliefs or opinions, but no interest can be naive.

Sorry, I was joking. I don't actually believe M had and interest in the far right. But he does have an interest in this ultimate fighting mularky.

I'm actually convinced that he's Tucker Crowe.

Tucker's a bot.

Markus was, and presumably is, frustrating to communicate with. But I don't think he's a bad guy at heart and I certainly don't think he's any kind of serious right-winger. I'm sure he views himself as a centrist.
