The left has a funny way of censoring people who call out censorship.
You think they’d be a little more self-aware. But if they were, they wouldn’t be the left in 2018, now, would they? Perhaps, one day, American school children will learn about the Age of Victimhood in which millions of Americans with every right and privilege imaginable spent years bullying people who weren’t even oppressing them.
There would, in this history textbook, certainly be a bullet point for CrossFit management, who just fired a higher-up over, as the headlines will tell you, “homophobic tweets”, but based on what he said, it’s bitterly ironic.
It all began when an Indianapolis CrossFit gym decided to cancel a “Pride” event (June is LGBT pride month…so, brace yourself, these stories are probably going to start flowing) because of their religious beliefs.
Because this is America. And you would think you would be able to do so.
The gym received national scrutiny for their decision and may even have to close.
Well, Russel Burger, the Chief Knowledge Officer of CrossFit corporate, tweeted out his support for the gym, and that was, of course…anathema!
It apparently doesn’t even matter that what he said should have convicted people that perhaps too many LGBT Americans are bullying and maligning Christians for simply holding their own personal beliefs.
But no. It just sparked outrage. Because it’s 2018. And everything is stupid.
Here’s what he said:
“As someone who personally believes celebrating “pride” is a sin, I’d like to personally encourage #CrossFitInfiltrate for standing by their convictions and refusing to host an @indypride workout. The intolerance of the LGBTQ ideology toward any alternative views ins mind-blowing,” he tweeted first.
The tactics of some in the LGBTQ movement toward dissent is an existential threat to freedom of expression. The lack of tolerance for disagreement, which has been replaced with bullying Twitter mobs promising “consequences”, should be a concern regardless of your political stance.”
“That you #CrossFitInfiltrate for standing by your convictions and refusing to celebrate sin by hosting an @indypride workout. The intolerance of the LGBTQ ideology toward any alternative views ins mind-blowing,” he concluded in the now-deleted tweets.
This is something that everyone on the left needs to hear. He didn’t bash homosexuals, he didn’t even call homosexuality a sin outright, just the celebration of “pride”. What he did do was brutally expose the harsh reality of what the LGBTQ movement has become in America: a big pack of bullies who won’t stop harassing others until everyone affirms their lifestyle.
That’s not empowerment. That’s not even pride. That’s just being a total and complete hypocritical jerk who doesn’t care about tolerance for anyone but themselves.
It’s going to be a long month.
