Talking Indian whomp-’em : NY state senator and wife get whooped on the rez..

so come on, why would a NY state senator think it is a good idea to go on the seneca rez land lookin for a good time? and WHY would you get in between two indians fighting on the rez? THEN telling them who he was??

oh man this is funny.. what a idiot..

Indian whomp-’em


A state senator and his wife were jumped by a pair of Seneca Nation businessmen and two women during a wild brawl in a Niagara Falls Indian casino when the lawmaker tried to break up a fight following a black tie gala.

Republican state Sen. Mark Grisanti was punched in the ribs and back of the head, and his wife, Maria Grisanti, was beaten so severely about her head and face that she had to seek medical attention after the Friday-night fracas after the Seneca Diabetes Foundation’s Chairman’s Ball.

Grisanti told The Post he stumbled into trouble as he and his family walked into a lobby bar at the Seneca Niagara Casino and saw “these two guys about to go at it.”

Grisanti stepped between them and said, “Hey guys, calm down. This was a nice event. Relax, you just need to calm down.”

“One of them asked me who I was, and when I identified myself, he said I hadn’t done s--t for the Senecas, and punched me in the ribs.”


lol, full article at the link..

Default This politician didn't understand...

Just how his sort are seen as LESS admirable than the average Joe, not more so as he had presumed and preferred. He's like a schoolteacher or university fuzzy-studies professor that way. At least the lawyers are aware enough of how they're perceived to know that if they were drowning, the average person would want to throw them an anvil.

for those that may not quite grasp the stupidity here.. the senecas have a LONG and violent history in regards to confronting the NY state legislators through protests.. numerous times over the years they have closed the NYS thruway runnin through rez land.. to say there is bad blood between the senecas and the states .gov is a understatement..

Hubby and I have a standing policy. From my time bartending in NY and his time in Rangers:

If it's between two guys (or women) of equal ability it's between them. We ain't getting in the middle.

If it's a guy on a woman (presuming it's not a male midget and a female rollerblader) we try and help. If it's a guy kicking a dog we start kicking the guy back, if it's someone beating a child...all bets are off.

If two Seneca's want to brawl it out....have at it.

My bride spent time bartending in a steel-workers bar in Massena (ok they were aluminum workers but the metal is irrelevant). She got addept at defusing imminent fights. Her BEST line was defusing a coming dick-measuring by picking up a flensing knife they had been using as a clam knife (the 18" blade kind) and saying "Well, if it's THAT big it's really a trophy and belongs up on the wall with the rest of the trophies."

Yah we stay away.

But also remember these folks WERE in tuxes and such.....

ND... apparently, dress is irrelevant when it comes to changing the basic nature of the Senecas...

And this is the funniest story I've heard in years... this Senator has sh*t for brains, and clearly has a VERY inflated view of his own worth and status. Unless he was one of the VERY few who have stood up for the Senecas and other Natives in the tobacco and gas tax disputes over the past years, his "status" among them is lower than earthworms.

And unlike many white-eyes, the Natives tend to KNOW who their representatives are, and where they stand.

Those of us who live fairly close to the Res know damned well there are many places you do NOT go, even in daylight, if you want to come back out alive and in one piece. Many of those good ol boys are perfectly willing to protect their land with bullets, and they're about out of patience.

What about when a person of lesser ability clearly starts a fight, by throwing the first punch or whatever without clear, sufficient provocation? It'd logically be hard to have much sympathy for the predictable @ss-kicking that could be expected to follow. That would IMO apply both within and across gender lines...
