Unbelievable. Well, it would be for anyone unfamiliar with the depraved idiocy of the fanatical neo-Marxists on the fringes of the NDP and other Canadian so called "progressive" socialist organizations.
I'm all for women's self-defense, but you don't get to go around hitting people because they are capitalists. The morons at the site Judy Rebick founded want to train fanatics how to physically lash out in anger and aggression against capitalism. These people are emotionally and psychologically unbalanced to begin with. Training them to be violent is worse than stupid, it borders on being criminally irresponsible.
From the lunatic neo-Marxist website rabble.ca, published by the spouse of NDP Deputy Leader Libby Davies:
Our experiences of violence impacts our lives, and our activism. To
challenge patriarchy, colonialism and capitalism we need to be able
to defend ourselves and our communities. Join us for a physical
self-defense workshop and a discussion about gender norms and the
right to anger, to healthy aggression and to countering the pathologizing
of women who fight back.
