The cancel culture – the settlement culture – has also made its appearance in cycling. 19-year-old Quinn Simmons – American, junior world champion in 2019 – has been suspended by his team Trek-Segafredo. The reason? He had spoken positively on Twitter about Donald Trump, his own president.
It all started with a tweet from the Dutch cycling journalist José Been. After the debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump, she said that anyone who supports Trump must unfollow her. Simmons responded with “bye” and an emoji of a waving black hand. Moments later, Simmons acknowledged to be a “Trumper,” meaning he supports Trump.
You would think: no problem. He didn’t tweet anything extreme.
Well, unfortunately, we live in totally crazy times. Because his team claims that Simmons has sown “division” with his tweet. And so it has been put on hold.
“We are an organization that strives for inclusivity and supports a more diverse and equitable cycling sport,” said Trek-Segafredo. “While we support the right to free speech, we believe everyone is responsible for their words and actions. Unfortunately, our rider Quinn Simmons has made online statements that we believe are divisive, inflammatory and damaging to the team, professional cycling, fans and the positive future we hope to create for our sport. ”
This is the new normal. Left-wing activists are in charge everywhere and act like a bunch of crazy Stalinists. And while they take their Stalinism out on normal people, they also rape the meaning of words. “Including.” “Diverse.” “Righteous.” The terms are used, but in a way that is completely opposite to their actual meaning.
The settlement culture is getting worse. Now you can no longer be positive about a politician if it happens to be on the right. And mind you, Trump is Simmons’ president. Chosen by him and his fellow Americans. But support him publicly and you will be accused of hatred and whatever.
We on the right cannot let this happen. We should oppose this now. And passionate too.
