A popular liberal narrative says that since Donald Trump’s election Muslim women are under attack from racist Islamophobic supporters. The reality is that nearly 100% of reported anti-Muslim hate crimes over the past 8 months have been hoaxes perpetrated by Muslims to prove that Trump has made America a less tolerant nation. A martial arts studio in Iowa is offering free self-defense classes to Muslim women, presumably so they can stop themselves from inventing hate crimes.
A free self-defense in Iowa City teaches women how to protect themselves from verbal and physical attacks. It’s especially geared towards Muslim women.
How exactly is a self-defense class geared towards Muslim women? Is there some style of martial arts that is particularly effective for Muslim women to use? Also, how would these Muslim women protect themselves from verbal attacks? Are they teaching these Muslim women the fine art of the middle finger?
The class is taught be some dude who calls himself Master Hamza Omar. Maybe that’s why the class is geared towards Muslim women; it’s taught by a Muslim man. I wonder if he’s teaching them self-defense techniques to use against other Muslim men. You know, how to avoid being stoned to death, how to repel a beheading, and how to slip out of a genital mutilation.
Actually, I’m not even kidding about this, Master Omar teaches these Muslim women how stop someone from snatching a hijab off of their heads.
Omar works for the Iowa City School District and juvenile court system, and says he sees the need for for women to learn how to defend themselves.
“I think everybody wants to feel safe, and given the environment we’re in post election,” said Omar.
What environment is that? The one where the liberal media freaks out every time a Muslim fakes a hate crime, but then goes silent when it turns out to be a hoax?
Making this all the more ridiculous is that Omar is only giving away one free class and he’s teaching the Muslim women Taekwondo. You know what Taekwondo is good for? Fighting other people who use Taekwondo. Against anyone else, it’s basically useless. I remember when mixed martial arts was first starting out and Taekwondo guys would get in the octagon and get annihilated. There’s a pretty good reason why they call this particular martial arts “Take Your Dough.” It’s a rip-off that won’t actually help you defend yourself.
Basically, this instructor is trying to scare Muslim women by making them believe that racist Trump supporters are going to attack them. He’s giving away a free lesson and hoping to fill his classes with terrified, but paying, Muslim women.
A better form of self-defense for Muslim women would be to stop attacking themselves and trying to frame imaginary racists. Not only won’t they have to beat themselves up, they also won’t face any charges of filing a false police report.
