MSNBC Warns: ‘Physical Fitness’ Is a Sign of ‘White Supremacy’

MSNBC is promoting stunning new claims that expressing an interest in and being healthy is a sign that someone is a “white supremacist.”

In an article shared on social media this week, MSNBC argues that people who exercise regularly may be filled with “hateful and dehumanizing ideas.”

While it’s often difficult to keep up with the Left’s frequent twisting of words’ meaning, social media users were not buying it and blasted MSNBC over the radical claims.

MSNBC first made the allegations in a 2022 op-ed.

The article warns that the “far right” took advantage of at-home fitness trends during the pandemic to push “white supremacy.”

Author Cynthia Miller-Idriss even went as far as to link Hitler to “physical fitness.”

The report states:

It appears the far right has taken advantage of pandemic at-home fitness trends to expand its decade-plus radicalization of physical mixed martial arts (MMA) and combat sports spaces.

Physical fitness has always been central to the far right.

In “Mein Kampf,” Hitler fixated on boxing and jujitsu, believing they could help him create an army of millions whose aggressive spirit and impeccably trained bodies, combined with “fanatical love of the fatherland,” would do more for the German nation than any “mediocre” tactical weapons training.

Miller-Idriss went on to assert that “fitness of course is a staple and a hobby for many people, for whom it is enjoyable and rewarding for brain health and overall well-being.

“Physical fitness channels dopamine, adrenaline, and serotonin in ways that literally feel good.”

However, the article goes on to warn that “intertwining those feelings with hateful and dehumanizing ideas, while promoting the concept that physical warriors are needed to create the strength and dominance to defend one’s people from a perceived enemy, makes for a dangerous and powerful cocktail of radicalization.”

“It’s critical that leaders, including parents, physical trainers, gym owners, coaches, and others in the fitness world understand how online grooming and recruitment can intersect with spaces that we generally think of as promoting health and well-being.”

The article garnered renewed attention on Monday when the outlet re-shared the article on social media.

Social media users took the opportunity to shred the outrageous premise.

Podcaster titan Joe Rogan quipped, “Being healthy is ‘far right.’ Holy f***.”

Twitter boss Elon Musk responded to Rogan saying:

“Parody & reality are becoming indistinguishable.”

Musk then responded to MSNBC’s post, saying:

“MSNBC thinks you’re a nazi if you work out lmaooo.”
