Cheater Lance Armstrong’s Store Forbids Sale of Bicycles to Austin Police Department

He’s a real moral authority.

A bicycle store in Austin, Texas owned by disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong announced it would no longer sell bikes to the Austin Police Department, taking offense at the way that the city’s police department had treated the Black Lives Matter movement during recent protests in the city.

It was a staff-wide store decision,” said general manager Will Black. “It’s something we discussed for a pretty good length of time to make sure we were all on the same page and doing the right thing. All of us were uncomfortable with what’s going on. It’s all the people who work at the bike shop.

Mellow Johnny’s is owned by Tour de France champion(a title since revoked) Lance Armstrong. While the business appears willing to castigate its local police department for supposed abuses, its entire public image and incentive structure is based upon the legacy of a man who took performance-enhancing drugs to secure an undue advantage for his own competitive gain.

The company announced it would no longer provide bikes to the Austin police in a tweet earlier this week.

Mellow Johnny’s states in the announcement that they still expect the police to protect them from alleged threats the business has been receiving.

Mellow Johnny’s has adopted a marketing technique of pandering to cultural liberals before, trying to insulate the business from any transactions with companies that sell and manufacture firearms.

Conservative-Friendly Sports Writer Jason Whitlock: First Woman to Play in Power Five College Football Game a “Make-A-Wish” Publicity Stunt

The voice of reason.

Published

Jason Whitlock, a former ESPN and Fox Sports writer and current OutKick columnist, did not hold back in his criticism of the Sarah Fuller publicity stunt and the subsequent reaction that called her a “hero” and a “trailblazer.”

Sarah Fuller is a goalie for the Vanderbilt University women’s soccer team. But Vanderbilt’s football team, already having a dreadful enough of a season as it is, at one point did not have a kicker going into Saturday’s contest against Missouri—because of, you guessed it, COVID-19. So they turned to Fuller and added her to the roster, thus making her the first woman to ever play in a Power Five college football game. (Power Five refers to the sport’s five major conferences: the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, and SEC. Vanderbilt is an SEC team.)

Her only appearance in the game—which Vanderbilt lost 41-0—featured her squib kicking the ball to Missouri’s 37-yard line at the beginning of the second half and dashing to the sideline. That’s it.

So it was only a matter of time before Whitlock, who does not describe himself as conservative but is clearly conservative-friendly, bashed the virtue-signaling surrounding Fuller’s appearance.

“Sarah Fuller briefly made football socially acceptable for America’s most ardent virtue-signalers. That was her primary accomplishment, pleasing Make A Wish America,” Whitlock wrote. “I don’t believe she played football. She scored a point in the culture war.”

Whitlock acknowledges that Fuller is an elite athlete, given that she plays goalie for a Division 1 soccer team which just won its conference championship last week and is heading for the NCAA Tournament in the spring, but says that putting her in this situation only diminishes female athletes.

“I don’t blame Sarah Fuller. She’s an accomplished, high-level Division 1 athlete. She’s a soccer goalie for the Vanderbilt women’s soccer team. She’s been baited into believing competing against men is her North star. Maybe it is. It shouldn’t be,” he wrote.

He added: “Sarah Fuller is an elite soccer player. She’s a terrible football player, arguably the worst to ever take the field in the SEC. The announcers during the game said [Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason] wasn’t comfortable using her [to] kick field goals unless they were inside the 15-yard line. There were pictures of her warming up in pregame kicking 14-yard field goals. Her athleticism does not need to be validated by competing against men in any capacity, let alone in a sport that is not her specialty.”

Whitlock also attacked “culture warriors” for hailing Fuller as “Jackie Robinson 2.0” and spending tons of money to prop up women as the athletic equals of men.

“There’s a lot of money being spent to create the illusion that women can and should be playing football against men. The people spending the money hate football. It epitomizes ‘toxic masculinity’… except when women are on the field. Football should also be shuttered because of the head trauma dangers… unless women are playing. Oh, and during this COVID pandemic, it’s irresponsible for these Power 5 schools to exploit these college athletes… unless there’s a woman playing.”
