ORLANDO, FLORIDA (WFTV) – Some parents and others are demanding that the University of Central Florida take action against a group of students, after the so-called ‘Knights For Socialism’ group hosted an event described as a ‘fight club’ on campus.
The event was tied to a promise to train students how to defend themselves against some supporters of President Donald Trump.
9 Investigates learned, however, that even with threats of violence against the group, the University has little control over the group’s message right now.
One post by the ‘Knights For Socialism’ advertised a ‘Leftist Fight Club.’ Another stated ‘Kick Their Axis- Stop the Alt-Right.’ The original event post, which is no longer available, said the fight club was open to everyone ‘except Republicans.’
“I’m very disappointed that UCF has not had a reaction to that yet,” UCF College Republicans Chairwoman Karis Lockhart said by phone.
“It’s contradictory, because they’re willing to fight people for different beliefs,” UCF student Ladranicia Lynch said.
9 Investigates learned those feelings extend beyond campus. One parent wrote to admissions officials in an email that ‘if these students in this club are not expelled immediately, my son will be transferring to UF as soon as possible.’ Another man, claiming to be a student at the University of Alabama, threatened to bring a crowd to campus for a fight, writing ‘we will have ambulences (sic) on standby.’
“No one should be trying to incite violence, using force, in any way,” UCF student Stephen Rice said.
