An MSNBC article from last year that seriously argued being fit and healthy its a ‘gateway drug’ to becoming a ‘Neo-Nazi’ has resurfaced after both Joe Rogan and Elon Musk tweeted about how insane it is.
MSNBC ‘columnist‘ Cynthia Miller-Idriss created the ludicrous piece in March of 2022, claiming “the far right has taken advantage of pandemic at-home fitness trends to expand its decade-plus radicalization of physical mixed martial arts.”
The writer also pointed to a separate report that claimed “a network of online ‘fascist fitness’ chat groups on the encrypted platform Telegram are recruiting and radicalizing young men with neo-Nazi and white supremacist extremist ideologies.”
“Initially lured with health tips and strategies for positive physical changes, new recruits are later invited to closed chat groups where far-right content is shared,” the article continued.
Podcast king Rogan tweeted out a link to the piece Monday:
Being healthy is “far right.” Holy fuck. https://t.co/EZ8kqpX3mF— Joe Rogan (@joerogan) July 10, 2023
Musk then followed up:

Grabien media’s Tom Elliot noted how being a normal healthy person is now somehow considered weird.
