Watch Out! MSNBC Says Weightlifting is White Supremacy

A recent column published by MSNBC accused physically fit men of being fascists. The article specifically focused on those involved in weightlifting and mixed martial arts training, accusing them of practicing “fascist fitness.”

MSNBC’s “fascist fitness” column was written by far-left academic Cynthia Miller-Idriss, a professor and researcher on extremism at American University.
