A gym in Atlanta has a very strict policy that both cops and active military members are not allowed membership or even permitted to step foot on the property. I know this seems like illegal discrimination, but liberals have established rules about stuff like this. It’s okay to exclude certain kinds of people like cops, whites, Christians and straight people. It only becomes a problem if minorities are affected. The shocking thing here is not that cops and soldiers are being banned, but rather that the gym is owned by a white guy.
11 Alive reports that EAV Barbell Club in Atlanta recently had a sign in front reading: “Rules: Do whatever the hell you want, correctly, except Crossfit cultism. No fucking cops.”
A military veteran saw the sign and informed the news. They in turn sent a black reporter to investigate, because even the news probably thought this place was owned by a militant black dude. Instead, it’s owned by “activist” white guy Jim Chambers. He explained that he took the sign down, but that the policy is still in place.
“It was really just that the vulgarity in that sign, and that seems to bring it out for people,” said Chambers, assuming no one was offended by the anti-cop message.
And speaking of which…
“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.
As if that isn’t bad enough, the reason why is completely bonkers. Chambers explained that much of his clientele are minorities and he doesn’t think they would feel comfortable around cops or soldiers.
The Atlanta Police Department would not comment on the policy, but told 11Alive News, “Were we to respond to an emergency there, this sign would not stop us from lawfully doing our job.”
To that, Chambers was defiant:
“If they have a warrant, they can go anywhere they want, but we’re not breaking the law,” Chambers said.
Well actually he is breaking the law. Banning people because of their occupation is illegal. That he has made this about race, makes it extra-illegal. Don’t believe me? Try banning landscapers from an establishment and see how quickly the ACLU files a lawsuit. Liberals think that President Trump enforcing existing immigration law is racist, so if someone were to ban landscapers who are generally Hispanic, it would be a crisis of epic proportion.
The question now is what happens if Chambers or anyone inside the gym needs the police.
Chambers says they never have, and won’t ever need the help of officers. He says he plans to put the ‘No Cop’ sign back up without the foul language.
Seeing as how most of the members are black and the fact that this gym is in a shitty neighborhood, I think it’s a guarantee that the place will be robbed and/or be the scene of a shooting. The police should absolutely honor Chambers’ wishes and just let that stuff go. No cops, no ambulances, no fire department, nothing. Let this activist handle his own shit.
