Professional Cyclist Suspended After Tweeting Support for Trump

Professional cyclist Quinn Simmons was suspended from his professional team after tweeting out a seemingly innocent statement in support of President Trump on Thursday.

The tweet in question consisted of Simmons tweeting the response ‘Bye’ to a Dutch journalist who claimed that ‘if you follow me and support Trump, you can go.’

As Fox News reports:

Simmons, 19, reacted to a tweet from Dutch journalist Jose Been in which she said she hoped for her American friends that “this horrible presidency ends for you,” adding “if you follow me and support Trump, you can go.”

Simmons replied to Been, saying “Bye” with a dark-skinned hand emoji waving. Her tweet was later deleted.

A separate Twitter user wrote that Simmons was “Apparently a Trumper.” He wrote back: “That’s right” with an American flag emoji.

It’s truly despicable that Simmons, who is only 19, has now lost his positional on his professional cycling team over a series of completely innocent tweets defending the President.

All the more reason why it is imperative that President Trump wins in November, lest the same fate befalls more and more of his supporters who will become persecuted for their beliefs under a Biden/Harris Administration.

1 way street under the Lefts agenda. Sit down, shut up, we are in control. We don’t care about your opinion unless it’s identical to ours.

They DO care about your opinion and will do their best to forbid it.

Lefties now are the fringe radical element that would dictate not only where you go but also what you say and do. Today, they dictate what you’re allowed to think. Think secretly and they’ll let you live.

You’re correct. No one can terminate anyone due to their beliefs. This is our Constitutional Right. There are plenty of attorney’s who are now representing thousands of people who have been wrongfully terminated, excused & harassed into leaving their positions. Don’t let it happen. Go on line & locate these attorney’s. We have to stop our civil liberties being taken from us, in all aspects of our lives.

The “tolerance” of the Left is so overwhelming that it’s no wonder that he was shown the door for his independent thought. The Left is despicable and pure scum.

I hope he files a lawsuit against them. Since you can’t discriminate employment on the basis of race, religion, sex, I’d say you can’t do it for political view either. This is getting to be completely absurd.

This should absolutely scare every single American who plans on voting this November.
Just think about what our lives will be like if joe gets into the WH???? He WILL NOT BE THE ONE RUNNING THE SHOW! Please believe that. For the younger voters, soon you will wake up and realize that the freedoms you took for granted are GONE!
If joe wins, count on another shut down. What’s going to happen to businesses that are barely hanging on? Half of NY restaurants are gone because of shut downs. This is so much more than party lines. This is good against evil and ours and our children’s future.
Please vote in person.
Vote RED up and down the ticket.
TRUMP/PENCE 2020

Chaos like that is just what the democommunists are looking for in order to facilitate the U.S. entry into World Socialist, no-borders, Government. Check out the Cloward and Piven Manifesto, Saul Alinsky, etc. It’s the left’s utopia.

So….world wide people are wanting to get rid of Trump….You know what that means don’t you? TRUMP is doing something right in putting America first….and those fascists, communists, liberals and Russia/China/Soros/media/entertainers, the elitists, are hoping Trump is gone too so America can become a globalist nation with no borders….
So whatever you are doing President Trump….KEEP IT UP! :)))))))))

that just shows how cowardly the left is. they’re so afraid of the truth or anything that is not their perverted version of the truth that they literally cannot deal with it. they have to cancel it or their heads will explode. no wonder biden has to answer questions with a teleprompter, and spends weeks preparing for a debate when Trump keeps a normal full schedule and shows up the night of. Truth does not need rehearsal or a good memory, and for this cyclist, getting away from a cowardly and delusional organization will be the best thing that ever happened.
