What a Joke! Antifa Starts Up Wimpy ‘Self Defense’ Gym

Antifa: (an-tee-fa) noun 
A wimpy, pathetic excuse of a group who picks fights they can’t win 

I never thought I would say this but Antifa has actually outdone themselves this time. The group started up their own self defense gym….which is really just a bunch of sissies standing around and punching the air.


An anti-fascist (Antifa) group has opened up their martial arts training “gym” in Chicago called “Haymaker Collective.”

A couple of months ago the Antifa affiliated group created an IndieGoGo campaign to fund their “anti-fascist, anti-racism, self-defense gym.” They raised $6,000, which was $44,000 short of their goal, but it still allowed them to get started.

I wish I could say this is actually a joke or some type of satire, but they are completely serious… can even check out their IndieGoGo site, here.

Their group description is:

“In the wake of the election of Donald Trump and the emboldened far right, Haymaker: Popular Fitness & Self-Defense is bringing free martial arts training to Chicago for anyone who wants to learn self-defense. We are a new type of fitness center, based upon the principles of autonomy, strength, and solidarity.”

Blue Lives Matter reports:

Antifa has been involved in rioting in multiple cities across America during the past few months. During these riots, they have beaten people simply perceived to be Trump supporters, along with throwing rocks, bricks, glass bottles, and explosives at them. Their ideology isn’t just talk; the groups have been taking violent action.

It’s without hyperbole that I call Antifa terrorists. If you look in the dictionary, Terrorist is defined as: ” person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.” That pretty much describes Antifa perfectly.

In a way, this makes Haymaker Collective a terrorist training camp. It’s a laughable terrorist training camp, but it still demonstrates that they have recognized that their sheltered existence has not prepared them to fight people who have been involved in actual fist-fights, or seen combat.

Could you imagine if these wusses actually tried to fight Trump supporters? It would be over before it even started!
