JACKSONVILLE, Florida (LifeSiteNews) — A Christian employee of Geek Squad, the tech support arm of major electronics corporation Best Buy, was reportedly rebuked and told that he couldn’t display evidence of his Christian beliefs after he objected to the LGBT flags and other paraphernalia adorning the office space.
The report comes after another “citizen journalist” went public with a screenshot of a training program made available exclusively to non-white Best Buy employees, sparking accusations of racial discrimination.
The Geek Squad employee, Christian Serbian immigrant Enis Sujak of Jacksonville, Florida, said he was told by his manager that the LGBT rainbow flags and other “pride” displays adorning the office were appropriate while Christian imagery was not.

In an audio recording obtained by Sujak and sent to former Project Veritas head James O’Keefe’s new investigative media outfit O’Keefe Media Group, Sujak asks his manager why there isn’t “Christian stuff” in the office, which was already decked out with “gay pride flags and all that transgender stuff.”
A second voice in the recording, attributed to Sujak’s manager, Michael Hirsch, says the two things “are not the same” because a person “can 1000% choose a religion.” He said Sujak is “choosing to believe in Christianity,” but that LGBT identity, by comparison, isn’t a choice.
The remark comes despite the fact that, per the American Psychological Association (APA), researchers don’t agree on the “born-that-way” theory. In fact, the APA says, “[t]here is no consensus among scientists about the exact reasons that an individual develops a heterosexual, bisexual, gay, or lesbian orientation.”
Moreover, rising rates of LGBT identification in the U.S. are sharply stratified by generation and correspond closely with increased celebration of such identities in the culture. Available data indicates that nearly one in five Generation Z young adults between the ages of 18 and 25 identify as LGBT, compared with 11.2% of millennials and just 3.3% of older adults.
Leaders in transgender medical research have acknowledged that “social contagion” is a factor in rising levels of transgender identification among children and youth.
O’Keefe Media Group was reportedly unable to make contact with Hirsch for his reaction to the report, citing a “Google system that prevents us from getting his comment.”
In his interactions with fellow staff at Best Buy, Sujak also sparked conflict when he left a required morning meeting due to LGBT indoctrination.
The Serbian immigrant said he walked out of a meeting where employees were forced to listen to a lecture on “LGBTQ history,” causing the instructor to take “offense” and put “more pride flags” up in response.
“Apparently she took offense at me not just sitting there and listening to all that garbage,” Sujak told O’Keefe in a Zoom interview.
And the promotion of LGBT ideology in at least once of its Geek Squad offices isn’t the only reason Best Buy has caught the attention of O’Keefe Media Group.
Earlier this week, the investigative media outfit, which relies largely on “citizen journalists” to gather and bring to light evidence of government and corporate corruption, reported that Best Buy appeared to have partnered with management and consulting group McKinsey & Company to provide professional development programs that explicitly excluded white applicants.
“As a part of Best Buy’s commitment to develop and support our employees, we’ve partnered with McKinsey & Company to offer the McKinsey Leadership Programs,” a memo reportedly sent by the electronics company said.

The program is not open to white applicants. “Candidates must meet the [racial] requirements below”

Interested candidates would need to meet a number of specified requirements, including identifying as “Black, Latino, Hispanic, Asian or Pacific Islander.”
The Washington Examiner reported that the memo prompted the conservative America First Legal group to call on white Best Buy employees to reach out if they feel they’ve faced racial discrimination.
“If you are a current Best Buy employee who does not qualify for this program because of your race, we want to hear from you today,” the group said.
As of Saturday, Best Buy has not issued a public response to the allegedly leaked memo.
