American Cyclist Fired for Americanism, Displaying American Flag, Supporting Trump

Quinn Simmons

When I was younger and much more naïve, I used to think that my old political mentor was exaggerating when he talked about politics here in the USA. He was an old Navy riverboat captain and would often declare that combat in Vietnam was easier than politics in America. “At least the commies over there were honest enough to just shoot at you,” he’d declare. The older I get, the more I realize that he was correct. The Democrat Party is now an openly communist entity. They want to treat you and your family the same way that Pol Pot, Mao and Stalin treated their political enemies. Get a load of this story.

A professional American cyclist has been suspended from his team, for tweeting just three words (in two separate Twitter messages) and an image of an American flag. I follow professional cycling about as closely as most people, which is to say – not much at all. So, I had to do a bit of research to even talk about this story.

One of the teams on the pro cycling circuit is called Trek-Segafredo. The team is registered professionally and jointly in Luxembourg and America. They ride in races like the Tour de France and others, primarily in Europe. The youngest rider on the team (and one of the fastest) is a 19-year-old American named Quinn Simmons.

A Dutch journalist named Jose Been threw down a gauntlet this week. (Jose Been’s pronouns are “she”/ “her,” so I assume that Jose is the Dutch equivalent of “Josie” – but don’t quote me on that.)

Ms. Been announced her virtue to the world by declaring that the rose- and lavender-scented flatulence emitting in 140-character bursts from her Twitter keyboard were such a gift to the world, that all Trump supporters on the globe should immediately cease and desist from following her. Quinn Simmons of Trek-Segafredo took her up on that offer, tweeting the word, “Bye!”

That single word from Quinn Simmons triggered the witch-sniffing abilities of the Twitter rage mob. One Twitter observer floated his suspicions that Quinn Simmons is a “Trumper.”

Quinn responded to that individual with the words, “That’s right” and an image of the American flag.

And… he’s fired. Well, “suspended indefinitely,” but we all know it really means he’s fired.

Just to be clear about that whole chain of events:

An American cyclist on an American-owned cycling team expressed support for the American president of America while talking to foreigners… and he just got fired.

It’s not like Quinn Simmons is a slouch on the 28-member Trek-Segafredo team. His Wikipedia page notes that Quinn Simmons won 10 first-place finishes in 2018 and 2019. But to the corporate fascists that own Trek-Segafredo, it’s more important to oppose Donald Trump than it is to do the one thing that a professional cycling team is supposed to do: win races.


In a not-unrelated incident, the former CEO of Twitter – a guy named Dick Costolo – sent out a message this past week, declaring that any corporate leaders in America who reject the “woke” politics of Black Lives Matter, “Are going to be the first people lined up against the wall and shot in the revolution. I’ll happily provide video commentary.”

We also see the intent of the modern Democrat Party clearly after learning that President Trump and First Lady Melania have tested positive for coronavirus. Twitter has been flooded with messages from Democrats declaring that they hope the President of the United States dies. If they’re willing to publicly call for the death of the nation’s duly elected leader, imagine how they truly feel in their private thoughts about icky little old you, with your bourgeoisie American flag and that Trump-Pence 2020 sign in your yard.

One of the most talented young professional cyclists in the world is out of a job for tweeting three words of support for the president – not even controversial words. It also sends a clear message to everyone else: Don’t step out of line. If it can happen to Quinn Simmons, it can happen to you, too. You wouldn’t want to get lined up along the wall with the rest of those deplorables, would you?

Is everyone clear on what the new rules are now? Any questions on what to do on Election Day?

No? Good.

    Anyone want to buy a used Trek Cobia?

  2. J. Ricks October 4, 2020 at 11:11 pm

    This is really happening, isn’t it. The Marxists are literally everywhere, and are attempting to suppress any/all indications of support for American patriotism and POTUS Trump, anywhere in the world. Sounds just like the CCP to me. I wonder if someone will cancel my comment???

    Thus proving another sports organization is nothing but trash.

    I spoke to my nephew in Florida, who is a Trump supporter, who said many of his neighbors there have Biden signs displayed. He said he spoke to one of these folks and was told that the neighbor is afraid that if he displayed a Trump sign, that his house/ car would be vandalized or he would be attacked. The BLM and Antifa have him frightened. Hopefully he will vote for Trump this November.

    The only thing missing from the article was the piece of information that when Quinn told Jose “goodbye” he included the hand waving emoji. The emoji he used was “a black hand” which is what supposedly set off the snowflakes into their meltdown.

    Time to start making things hot for these communist companies that claim to be American. Write or call and express your concerns. One might not make a difference but if we all sent them a letter they would take notice. Enough of BLM, Antifa, and the DNC.

    Trek-Segafredo is just another “woke” company who thinks Americans are stupid! I notice a commenter wanting to sell his “Trek” bike! No, I don’t want it, I want to SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT THIS POS COMPANY! Make Tred-Segafredo cry just like Goodyear tires! Boycott these PRO-COMMUNIST businesses that think they OWN their employees! Hit them in the wallet where the lesson will STICK!
    As for Dick Costolo, the former CEO of Twitter? Well, maybe the news isn’t out yet, but on October 1 the Senate Panel issued SUPOENAS for several Top Social Media CEO! There’s one for Mark Zuckerbery from Facebook, one for Sundar Pichai, who’s CEO for Google. And guess what, one for Jack Dorsey, the CEO FOR TWITTER! Dick Costolo and his PRO Communist BS may very well be next! HAH! I say…”Get ’em, A.G. Bill.Barr!” TRUMP2020!

    Another sport(?) saying to the AMERICAN public that the only thing they care about is money and NOT the SPORT. It also shows that they are not IMPORTANT to our lives, that they are another group of spoiled rich crybabies, at least the owners are.They cost us money and they do not contribute 1 iota to the support of the public good. The Marxist/Nazi socialist MUST BE STOPPED, NOW. Look back at history and learn from the DEATH and DESTRUCTION caused by these groups. “LIVE FREE OR DIE!” FREEDOM or COMMUNIST SLAVERY IT’S YOUR CHOICE!

    This guy should sue the crap out of the employer who fired him. He is entitled to his right of free speech.

    I can totally understand people being afraid and scared of harm being done to themselves and property. I live in a senior facility so I cannot display any signs outside my apt. With the Dems encouraging and financing the idiots/terrorists you never know what random acts of violence will take place. I will say, I have seen MANY Trump signs in front of peoples homes (and VERY FEW Biden) and I salute them for their bravery. Unfortunately, the way things are, if someone tries to defend themselves, they will be arrested and not the terrorists. Trump MUST be re-elected so at least we and the Constitution will be safe from the Dictatorship agenda of the UNAMERICAN Democrats!

    Wanna try and line me up on a wall? Good luck with that.

  13. DAV October 5, 2020 at 8:49 pm

    The devil is alive and well; with his demons, of course. We can’t get away from them !

  14. Hunter006 October 5, 2020 at 8:58 pm

    This is exactly why people don’t publicly support President Trump. They will do it in private so they don’t have to deal with the socialist side of all this. If all the SILENT Trump supporters ever decided to put themselves in the polls (Trust me-you do a poll and someone will find out), It would actually show that President Trump is gonna bury Biden!!! And I can’t wait to watch the VP Debate Wednesday night. Pence is gonna mop the floor with Harris. LOL

    Ya, heil to z demokratic party!

    If your plan is to shoot some of the losers in a Civil War the Democrats seem to be pressing very hard for, you had better hope to be on the winning side. I’m firmly entrenched with the deplorables in this war and I fully understand that it currently appears that the devil’s brigade is winning, but it is only because until now the devil bunch is the only side warring. Soon enough they will succeed in pissing the deplorables off and then TSWHTF. If that happens, Mr. Costolo has set the ground rules, so he will have no one to blame but himself
