'Antifa' Group to Train for Clashes With White Nationalists in Trump's 'AmeriKKKa'
An "Antifa" group in Chicago plans to open a gym to train members for potential clashes with Trump supporters, Tucker Carlson reported.
A woman who used the assumed pseudonym "Naila" told Carlson that "certain bodies are vulnerable to certain attacks."
She said that there was recently a 20 percent rise in hate crimes both in Chicago and nationwide.
Carlson asked how that number's importance compared to Chicago's more than 2,000 shootings in 2017.
"Your fears may be a little overblown," he said. "How many of the 2,000 shootings were carried out by right-wingers?"
Naila said she was "more interested in hate crimes," saying that the gym's purpose will be to "grow strength together."
She dismissed Carlson's line of questions surrounding gun ownership, saying that it is more relevant for her to learn hand-to-hand combat.
According to Heat Street, the Haymaker Collective, which is said to be named after an 1880s anarchist riot, plans to open the gym to let their members train for any impending scuffles.
However, the outlet reported that the training regimen is anything but aggressive.
"A lot of people think that when you learn to fight, it's all about being aggressive and learning how to go start street fights with people," an Antifa member told Heat Street.
The group said the gym will be a place to fight the "heteronormative" and "masculine" culture of gyms in the United States.
The gym's prospective members hope to fight the "alt-right" and "white nationalism" they see in what they called "Donald Trump's Amerikkka (sic)."
