Former NFL star Larry Johnson went a bizarre and troubling rant on social media Thursday, August 29. The ex-Kansas City Chiefs running back took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the “effeminate agenda” that is apparently being peddled to “indoctrinate the heterosexual sports world” by high-ranking Masons.
Seriously, this is some wild conspiracy nut stuff.
So how are these Masons peddling their agenda? According to Johnson, it’s everything from three-pointers, to weight loss, to locker room “fashion shows” and even Antonio Brown’s helmet saga.
It was quite the wild rant from Johnson, who found himself as a top Twitter trend for all of the wrong reasons.
“There is an Effeminate Agenda going on amongst the NBA & NFL elite, peddled by high ranking Masons/handlers to indoctrinate the heterosexual sports world without them knowing, for the buying power of the LGBTQ community,” Johnson began. “But we not ready to have that conversation yet.”
Johnson then said another example is the pink gear players in the NFL wear in the NFL for what he claims is “LGBTQ Month.” Gay Pride month is actually in June, but did we really expect anything from Johnson’s rant to make much sense?
“They want you to think Breast Cancer, but they show you they don’t care much about women, look at the treatment of domestic violence issues,” Johnson wrote.
That’s quite the take, coming from a guy with a history of domestic violence.
The reason the unhinged rant is a bit of a concern is because Johnson has previously said he struggles with violent urges and memory loss since his playing days in a piece with the Washington Post.
“You kind of create your own prison,” Johnson said. “I’ve kind of barricaded myself in my surroundings [with] certain things that I can handle. That’s kind of how I beat it.”
Hopefully those who love and care about Larry Johnson are paying close attention.
