MSNBC Piece Claims ‘Health & Fitness’ is New Gateway Drug to the Far-Right
by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News
Bemoans how “solidarity, heroism, and brotherhood” are linked with physical training.
MSNBC published an article claiming that shadowy people on the Telegram messenger service are recruiting far-right acolytes by talking about health and fitness.
Apparently, health and fitness is the new gateway drug to the far-right.
An article headlined ‘Pandemic fitness trends have gone extreme — literally’ asserts that online fascist gym bros are colonizing mixed “martial arts (MMA) and combat sports spaces” as some kind of secret plot to amplify “neo-Nazi and white supremacist extremist ideologies.”
“Physical fitness has always been central to the far right,” writes Cynthia Miller-Idriss, who previously wrote articles smearing the Canadian trucker protesters as far-right extremists.
Being into “the male body, training, masculinity, testosterone, strength and competition” and embracing “messaging around solidarity, heroism, and brotherhood” is apparently a bad thing and a precursor to racial violence.
