An Atlanta gym owner has drawn a line in the sand when it comes to allowing those who protect our streets and country from joining his gym.
That’s right! This guy will not allow police officers or active duty military members to join his gym. He placed a sign on his front door that read: “Rules: Do whatever the hell you want, correctly, except CrossFit cultism. No f**king cops.”
The owner’s name is Jim Chamber and he actually took down the sign because it contained vulgar language but says he plans to replace the note without the curse words.
Here is the original photo before it was changed.
From Free Beacon:
“We’ve had an explicitly stated ‘no cop’ policy since we opened, and we also don’t open membership to active members of the military,” Chambers said. “American police are really just an entity that they serve capitalism and they serve white supremacy, and that’s the way we see that.”
Chambers, a lifelong political activist, said he took down the sign because he “didn’t want the other folks there to take the heat that I’m willing to take.”
“It was really just that the vulgarity in that sign that seems to bring it out for people,” he added.
But Chambers stands by the gym policy and plans to put the sign back up without the foul language.
Well, he’s a business owner and he can do whatever he wants with his establishment. I, as a consumer and veteran, can choose whether or not I want to spend my income there. It’s really that simple and we should be glad that we live in such a beautiful country.
Hopefully, this gym will never need the cops and I pray they lost most of their business after pulling this stunt. They have a right to not allow some people to join their gym but others have a right not to spend a dime there as well.
