'Leftist Fight Club' Trains Students to Fight Republicans

Came across this on Drudge this morning and thought it might be worth getting some impressions from ATS.

It seems this Campus Socialist organization (Knights For Socialism) is teaching fighting skills to students...specifically to be used against Trump supporters and Republicans, in general.

The fact that the group's advertising states specifically that these classes are open to everyone BUT Republicans, speaks volumes about their motivation to promote violence (in addition to their extremely biased and inflammatory rhetoric against Trump and those whom support him), rather than to help prevent it.

Personally, I am completely in support of students learning self-defense...but marketing it by using anti-Trump and anti-Republican jargon is entirely out of bounds.

What say you, ATS?



The “Knights for Socialism” group at the University of Central Florida (UCF) held a workshop Sunday to teach left-wing students how to “BASH THE FASH” with a “Leftist Fight Club” open to everyone but Republicans.




“In response to the record number of hate crimes against Latinxs, Immigrants, Muslims, Women, the LGBTQIA+ community, Jews, African Americans and other minorities since the rise of Donald Trump and other Alt-Right Neo-Nazis, Knights for Socialism has decided to host a series of self-defense clinics for anyone that wants to learn how to BASH THE FASH,” asserts the Facebook event page for “Leftist Fight Club: The Rumbles at Lake Claire.”
The description explains that a local amateur boxer was on hand to teach basic hand-to-hand combat techniques at the self-defense clinic, in order to help the socialist students better protect themselves from potential hate crimes performed by those sympathetic to “Donald Trump and other Alt-Right Neo-Nazis.”

The event planners specifically urged women to attend because they expect a rise in sexual violence due to the election of President Trump.

“Ladies: The Commander in thief is a sexual predator and rapist,” the description warns. “He has normalised sexual assault and it is expected that sexual violence against women is going to skyrocket in the next 12 months. Please join us! There will be other women there for you to spar against!”

The organizers also imply that they are looking forward to unprotected sparring, remarking that “We will have gloves and pads, no bare-knuckle yet
.”

Scott Benton, a UCF College Republican, told Campus Reform that he considers the impulse toward violence to be a natural consequence of the intellectual indefensibility of leftists beliefs, saying, “If you can’t hang with someone on a debate stage, then you resort to other means to try and justify your cause.”

Other students, however, say they feel less safe on campus because of the event.

“This event is open to everyone and anyone, EXCEPT REPUBLICANS,” the Facebook event page proudly proclaims.

Karis Lockhart, chair of the UCF College Republicans, put it simply, telling Campus Reform that “the fact that the description of the event says ‘everyone except republicans’ means they don't want to hold an educational discussion about the issues, they just want to whine.”
Neither Knights for Socialism nor UCF spokespersons responded to requests for comment from Campus Reform in time for publication.

I would pay big, big money to watch a group of them go after DB. Then he could stack them up and sit on them like Andre the Giant used to do with midget wrestlers.

I didn't realize there had been "record number of hate crimes against" tribe, tribe, tribe, tribe, tribe, tribe, tribe and tribe.

DB is definitely one 'Bad Hombre'.
I'd probably resort to using my finely-honed 'Flung Pu' skills against the Knights Of Socialism.

Of course, these dipwads have already violated the first rule of 'Socialist Fight Club'.

I'd say if we all didn't have jobs and had time to go protest we could just line up and throw rocks through the windows. That's the proper way to protest these days right?

On a serious note, are they using an app or Youtube to teach themselves self-defense?

Bash the fash...

These people literally stand for everything the claim to fight against.
How are people so dumb/misled?

So they can't fight the ideas with proper debate and discussion so they are going to resort to violence?

Looks like they are going to lose on both fronts

I remember a time not so many years ago, it was the conservative right that was labeled violent Neanderthals incapable of settling anything w out resorting to something physical

My my how the mighty have fallen

I would pay money for a livestream of this class. Watching feminized males slap each other would be hilarious.

They think they are tough like Russian revolutionaries?

The children of the bourgeoisie and International corporations vs The working man and the small business owner.

Does a communist revolution work when the roles are reversed?

Exactly! This is so absurd.. surreal. We're knowingly being led right in to violence by inhuman overlords.

So what are we going to do about it?

From the OP:


If you can’t hang with someone on a debate stage, then you resort to other means to try and justify your cause.”


Much like the Nazi's did , they rounded up everyone who was against them.
