NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Racing) is a Southern-based racing sport, popular among Southerners and Southern-adjacent white people.
Obviously, that means they have to go out of their way to make it woke and politically correct.
The latest example is the reeducation of Noah Gragson, a race car driver guilty of blasphemy against George Floyd. All the guy did was ”like” a humorous meme about George Floyd. That cannot be tolerated.
The Revolver website, which has a lot of good stuff on it, had an apt summary of the situation entitled
NASCAR driver who was forced into “George Floyd Reeducation Camp” says he’s a better person now…
(September 15, 2023).
Here’s what Revolver said:
NASCAR should be receiving the Bud Light treatment right now, but for some inexplicable reason, they’re not. While they’ve seen a dip in support, it’s nothing compared to what they deserve after abandoning their fan base for woke nonsense, including a strong emphasis on “BLM” and George Floyd, the Patron Saint of Armed Robberies During Pregnancy. Things have taken a really bizarre turn within NASCAR. They actually suspended a driver who merely “liked” an anti-George Floyd meme online. Apparently, in order to be race car driver, you must blindly support felons who commit armed robberies against pregnant women.
Interesting contrast with the Bud Light case. How would a boycott against NASCAR turn out?
Noah Gragson learned this “rule” the hard way when NASCAR threatened to dismantle his entire life for not supporting George Floyd and the entire Marxist BLM movement. The only way Noah had any hope of salvaging his career was if he agreed to undergo the “George Floyd Reeducation Camp” and “rectify” his “mistakes.” Well, he’s completed his reeducation, and Noah is a new man now, fully understanding the profound value and importance of career criminals and drug abusers.
Revolver quotes the Fox News report which includes Gragson’s post-training comment:
NASCAR reinstated Noah Gragson on Tuesday after the driver was suspended for liking a George Floyd meme on social media.
The organization said that Gragson “has completed diversity and inclusion training with our partners at RISE.” The former Legacy Motor Club racer released a separate statement on his reinstatement.
“I want to express my sincere gratitude to NASCAR for reinstating me. Over the past several weeks, I have dedicated myself to personal growth and reflection, and I believe I have become a better person because of it,” Gragson said. “I couldn’t have done it without the support of my family and the NASCAR industry.
“I am now more focused and committed than ever to representing my future team in the best way possible. I’m eager to get back behind the wheel and compete at the highest level, giving it my all on and off the track. Thank you to everyone who have been a part of this journey, and I can’t wait to make the most of this second chance.”
That statement certainly sounds like a hostage script, doesn’t it? In reality, that’s exactly what it amounted to. If young Noah wanted to preserve his livelihood, he had to bow down to the memory of George Floyd and sadly, he won’t be the last. Unfortunately, many conservatives will likely continue supporting NASCAR, despite the fact that, much like Bud Light and Fox News, they seem to have a real disdain for their customer base.
