An Antifa group in Chicago is reportedly planning to open a gym to train its members how to defend themselves and attack others in the potential clashes the group may have with Trump supporters.
On his show last night, Tucker Carlson interviewed a member of the “Haymaker Collective” group behind the gym, Naila, who said, “certain bodies are vulnerable to certain attacks.”
When the woman claimed there had been a 20% increase in hate crimes in the city of Chicago, as well as nationwide, Carlson questioned how that was important compared to the city’s number of shootings.
“Your fears may be a little overblown,” Carlson said. “How many of the 2,000 shootings were carried out by right-wingers?”
Naila claimed that she was “more interested in hate crimes,” and that the gym will have the purpose of helping people “grow strength together” as they apparently fight for survival in Trump’s America.
Naila proceeded to cite the recent murder of a Muslim teen in Virginia as an example of why an Antifa gym is necessary. Carlson promptly shut her up by pointing at that the man responsible for the murder was an illegal alien, not a Trump supporter.

HeatStreet reports that the Haymaker Collective plans to open the gym in Chicago to train for any fights that might happen between their members and others. However, according to HeatStreet, the training at the gym is not aggressive at all.
“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 the outlet.
Targets for those that join the gym and it’s ‘training’ regime include the “alt-right,” “white nationalism,” and the “heteronormative” and “masculine” culture of gyms in what they call “Donald Trump’s Amerikkka (sic).”
