Marcus Stroman goes full Kanye with crazy conspiracy theories

Honestly, I didn’t realize that there were many galactic brains like this in the sports world. But I’m so naive.

If you’ve ever wondered what pitchers do on their days off, the Cubs’ Marcus Stroman revealed that at least some of them have spent time going down internet holes about things like “anything Whoever controls the media controls the world!” and such.

Stroman, who has nothing (but maybe Kyrie Irving’s apropos? Unknown), took to Twitter this morning to enlighten us all about what certainly looks like an anti-sick dog whistle that Stroman is so afraid of. to blow completely.

Let’s witness:

He goes on about the media for some time, refusing to say exactly what he means.

While demanding that people pay more attention to “facts” and “evidence,” Stroman refused to provide any, relying instead on a legion of Joe Rogan/Elon Musk fanboys to ride to his rescue.

Some pointed out that Stroman recently liked a Jason Whitlock tweet defending Kyrie Iriving, which said, “Cowards ripping @KyrieIrving for retweeing a documentary that is being promoted on Jeff Bezos’ Amazon platform. A certain demographic’s thoughts are heavily policed while others are free to think what they want.”

And while RTing a guy like Whitlock always puts you on the wrong side of any issue, the more concerning dog whistle here is that “Jews control the media” has long been an antisemitic trope. Stroman’s cryptic tweets, so close in time to Kanye West’s antisemitic meltdown, raised some real questions among fans.

The Committee American Jews published a document on common anti-epidemic tropes, and stated the following:

“The false reports that Jews control the media, banks and government are part of a long-standing conspiracy of secret Jewish power. This tactic of protest stems from a discredited publication, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which was published during the Tsarist era and accused the Jews of trying to control the world… Myths about This control portrays the Jews as puppet masters who secretly rule over others and manipulate the world’s economies and governments. world leaders “blind” into wars and indebtedness to enrich themselves and further their latent agenda. Antisemitic propaganda continues to spread the idea that wealthy or influential Jews behind the scenes are promoting their plans for world domination.

As some have pointed out, it would be really easy for Stroman to let this controversy stop. All Stroman had to do was say he wasn’t talking about the Jewish community and that he decried anti-Semitism. But at the time of publication, that statement never appeared, and many of the comments under Stroman’s original post, which I won’t distress you here, make it clear that his message was come very clearly and unambiguously to certain audiences.

This is not the first time Stroman has been criticized for his use of social media. Back in 2021, Stroman seemed to like a tweet calling a sports writer an Italian-American slur.

If Aaron Rodgers teaches us anything, it’s that when athletes “just ask questions,” that’s when you should stop and stop listening. And while it’s unclear if Stroman is actually intentionally being hostile in his posts, it’s pretty clear that’s what many of his followers think he’s doing, and many concur. So it’s a new day on Elon Musk’s free-speech social media platform.
