A student club at the taxpayer-funded University of Central Florida (UCF), Orlando, with an enrollment of about 55,000, openly advocates and trains members in “leftist fight clubs” to undertake violence against political conservatives.
The student club is called Knights for Socialism (KFS).
Thanks to a public records request by the nonpartisan D.C.-based citizens’ watchdog group Judicial Watch under Florida’s Sunshine Law, UCF released to Judicial Watch the records the university has on Knights for Socialism, which consist of:
- The Constitution of Knights for Socialism
- New Student Organization Proposal Form, submitted on September 2, 2016.
The Constitution of the Knights for Socialism describes the student club as “a coalition of Marxist-Leninists, Anarchists and Democratic Socialists seeking to increase class consciousness” and its mission as:
“to establish a new society based on socialism in which democracy is extended from politics to the economy and where production of goods and services is based on human need instead of private profit, a society in which all exploitation has been abolished and where human rights will come before property rights.”
Campus Reform uncovered additional disturbing information about this explicitly Marxist student club which is not included in the documents that KFS submitted to the university.
On February 5, 2017, KFS held a “Leftist Fight Club” workshop, from which Republicans were banned, to teach students how to “BASH THE FASH”.
Note: The dictionary defines “bash” as “to strike with a heavy crushing blow”; “to beat or assault severely”. “FASH is the Left’s abbreviation for Fascists — their term for anyone who supports President Trump who, to them, is a new Hitler.
Below is KFS’s announcement of the workshop, “Leftist Fight Club: The Rumbles at Lake Claire,” on its Facebook event page, which not only has since been deleted from Facebook but also scrubbed from the Internet archive:
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.
*For our first seminar, a local amateur boxer will teach us the basics of hand to hand combat. Following his instruction, we will all have the opportunity to face off against one another and practice what we learned.
*We have have gloves and pads, no bare knuckles yet 😉
*Even if you would only like to observe us we invite you to join us! Don’t wait until it’s too late to learn how to defend yourself!
*This event is open to everyone and anyone, EXCEPT REPUBLICANS.
*Ladies: The Commander-in-chief is a sexual predator and rapist. He has normalized sexual assault, and it is expected that sexual violence against women is going to skyrocket in the next 12 months. Please join us!
After the “leftist flight club” announcement was picked up by the Alternative Media, KFS denied ever saying that Republicans were barred from the fight club. Fortunately, KnightNews.com managed to take a screenshot of the announcement before KFC took it down:
That is simply NOT true.
On the contrary, it is the Left who have committed acts of violence against peaceful Trump supporters. Just because the fake-news MSM don’t report it, doesn’t mean those crimes of violence didn’t happen. See, for example:
- D.C. police arrest Trump inauguration domestic terrorists
- As violent rioters take over U.C. Berkeley, comedienne Sarah Silverman calls for military coup to overthrow President Trump
- Anti-Trump mob knocks Trump supporter unconscious at Portland Airport
- Woman who set fire to Trump supporter’s hair is identified
- Former AG Loretta Lynch and Senate Democrats call for subverting President Trump with marches, blood, and death
- Secret Service will investigate Madonna for her ‘blow up the White House’ remark in expletive-filled rant at women’s march
Predictably, KFS’s Facebook page shows it to be a rabid supporter for Planned Parenthood, illegal immigrants, the racist La Raza, and against President Trump’s construction of a US-Mexico border wall and a temporary visa ban.
The KFS student club’s chairman and contact person is a sophormore student named Dylan Tyer, whose phone number is (407) 247-2203.
In her letter to Judicial Watch of February 22, 2017, Tanya Perry of UCF’s Office of General Counsel said that KFS “has only recently submitted their materials to become a registered student organization” and that the university has not yet reviewed or approved what the club submitted.
If the university approves and KFS becomes an official, registered student organization, in the words of KFS, the club “will gain access to all of the perks that come with such status”. Please contact U. of Central Florida’s president, John C. Hitt, to state your objection:
