Here we go: being fit is racist.

According to a Fox News report, MSNBC was blasted online after re-sharing a story from last year entitled Why the Far-Right is Really Into Fitness. The article makes ridiculous claims, tying conservatives to “fascist fitness” groups online.

From Fox News:

The column claimed that researchers have discovered “fascist fitness” groups online that are “radicalizing young men with neo-Nazi and White supremacist extremist ideologies.” Recruitment methods allegedly include giving men “health tips and strategies for positive physical changes” where they later are exposed to “far-right content.”

“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,” the MSNBC column argued.

The column also name-dropped Adolf Hitler in order to discredit the interest in fitness and nutrition on the “far-right.”

“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.”

Popular Podcaster Joe Rogan and Twitter CEO Elon Musk mocked the article on Twitter.

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

“Being healthy is ‘far right.’ Holy f—,” Rogan, wrote.

There you have it: exercising is racist, according to MSNBC.
