A woman who used the assumed pseudonym “Naila” told Carlson that “certain bodies are vulnerable to certain attacks.”
She said that there was a 20 percent rise in hate crimes in Chicago and nationwide in recent times.
Carlson asked how that number’s importance compared to Chicago’s more than 2,000 shootings in 2017.
“Your fears may be a little overblown,” he said. “How many of the 2,000 shootings were carried out by right-wingers?”
Naila said she was “more interested in hate crimes,” saying that the gym’s purpose is to “grow strength together.”
She dismissed Carlson’s line of questions surrounding gun ownership, saying that it is more relevant for her to learn hand-to-hand combat.
