Robert Rowling Owner Of Gold’s Gym Donates Over $2 Million To Karl Rove Poliitical Organization Which Supports Anti-Gay Candidates – CANCEL Your Memberships and BOYCOTT Gold’s Gym!

Robert Rowling (pictured left), the Owner, Chief Executive Officer and President of TRT Holdings which runs Gold’s Gym, been exposed as donating over 2 MILLION DOLLARS through both his corporate and personal accounts to American Crossroads, the pro-GOP/Tea Party organization founded by Karl Rove has reported.

Among the candidates that the owner of Gold’s Gym is working to elect include Nevada GOP senate candidate Sharron Angle, who is challenging Sen. Harry Reid. Angle, you might recall, has previously said that women who are raped should turn their lemons into lemonade, and that LGBT people should be barred from adopting children. And that’s only the tip of iceberg.

Rove’s organization also endorses many anti-gay GOP and Tea party candidates (Including Rand Paul) and is responsible for the lying attack ads on many Democrats running for election including in Kentucky, Colorado, and Missouri just to name a few. has started a petition urging Gold’s Gym, which has many many LGBT members, to stop supporting anti-gay politicians. You can sign the petition here if you want.  But I say FUCK THEM!.  Don’t even bother. It won;t matter to them what we urge.  What WILL matter to them is LOSING MONEY.

And before people say some Gold Gym’s are franchises then the franchises decision in all this should be to denouce the action and terminate the franchise contracts when they are over because even though they are franchises percentages of their profits still go to the home company which in turn was in part used for support of Rove.

So if you are Democrat, Liberal, Progressive, Green Party, Straight, LGBT and just plain sane and sick of this shit.
