After one of its own community pages was arbitrarily removed from Facebook for no apparent reason, CrossFit leapt into the conversation about social media censorship by openly proclaiming that it will have no further involvement with the Mark Zuckerberg mafia, which continues to trample free speech and the First Amendment.
"Facebook's action should give any serious person reason to pause, especially those of us engaged in activities contrary to prevailing opinion," reads a portion of an official statement issued by CrossFit about why the company is basically cutting ties with Silicon Valley.
CrossFit went on to explain that the way decisions are made at Facebook lacks "transparency" and "due process," adding that simply holding viewpoints or beliefs that someone at Facebook doesn't agree with or finds "offensive" is enough to get a user or company banned from the platform – which, for those whose livelihoods are married to social media, will mean the bitterest of divorce proceedings.
Conservative commentator Laura Loomer learned this the hard way, as most of her income stream has apparently been wiped away following her removal from Facebook.
CrossFit's leadership is fully aware of this. They would seem to recognize that, much like how Loomer's political views are "incorrect" according to the powers that be, CrossFit's philosophies on health and fitness in many ways contradict the official government narrative on such matters – which means CrossFit could be arbitrarily banned from social media at any time.
"CrossFit is a contrarian physiological and nutrition prescription for improving fitness and health," the company admits. "It is contrarian because prevailing views of fitness, health, and nutrition are wrong and have unleashed a tsunami of chronic disease upon our friends, family, and communities."

Rather than wait for Facebook, Instagram, and/or WhatsApp to make the first move, CrossFit has wisely decided to be the one to cut ties with these digital platforms now, since they operate as little more than Stasi-like weapons of fascist oppression.
"The voluntary CrossFit community of 15,000 affiliates and millions of individual adherents stands steadfastly and often alone against an unholy alliance of academia, government, and multinational food, beverage, and pharmaceutical companies," the company maintains.
"CrossFit, Inc. defends relentlessly the right of its affiliates, trainers, and athletes to practice CrossFit, build voluntary CrossFit associations and businesses, and speak openly and freely about the ideas and principles that animate our views of exercise, nutrition, and health."
Until Congress finally intervenes and repeals Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act that allows social media giants like Facebook and Instagram to illicitly operate as both providers and publishers of content, there's really no reason for any person or business to continue using social media in its current form – that is, unless you want your intellectual property, followers, and livelihood to potentially vanish in an instant.
"Facebook's news feeds are censored and crafted to reflect the political leanings of Facebook's utopian socialists while remaining vulnerable to misinformation campaigns designed to stir up violence and prejudice," warns CrossFit.
"Facebook censors and removes user accounts based on unknown criteria and at the request of third parties including government and foreign government agencies," it adds.
