University of Central Florida’s ‘Knights of Socialism’ group organizes ‘Fight Club’ to ‘Bash the Fash’

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, according to a new report from Campus Reform.

“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.”

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

The article posts a photo promoting the event, with “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.'”

This is the image from the screenshot:

There was actual sparring and physical contact at the event, which promoted fear among the women on campus.

“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 ;).”

After contact with the Republican group on campus, the site obtained an email exchange which alleges the administration will look into the event.

East Orlando Post reported on the event as well, adding more screenshots and confirming the Campus Reform report as the UCF officials are still silent on the matter. Check that out HERE
