Everyone Need to Read the Tweets That Got This CrossFit Higher Up Fired During Pride Month

It’s going to be a long month.

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.

Trending: Biden Speech Writers Salivate Over Emerging July 4th Narrative

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.

But no.

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.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
