An overweight woman who has made a career as a “fat and body positive sex therapist” appeared at St. Olaf’s College to spout off about fitness trainers being Nazi’s and other social justice nonsense.
“I truly believe that a child cannot consent to being on a diet the same way a child cannot consent to having sex,” said Sonalee Rashatwar during her speech. “I experience diet culture as a form of assault because it impacts the way that I experience my body.”
“Her speech on ‘radical fat liberation’ was organized by St. Olaf College’s Wellness Center, Women’s and Gender Studies Department, and Center for Equity and Inclusion,” according to Gateway Pundit.
“We should be critical of the use of science and the production of knowledge to continue promoting this idea that certain bodies are fit, able, and desirable…is it my fatness that causes my high blood pressure, or is it my experience of weight stigma?” she asked rhetorically during her talk at St. Olaf’s.
She proceeded to call science that suggests thin people are healthier than overweight people “fatphobic,” and connect it to Nazism, because everything liberals do not like is a product of Nazism – even science.
“[O]ften actually eugenic science….eugenic science is Nazi science,” she said.
For her grand finale, Rashatwar attacked personal trainers
“I do not think it’s surprising that the man who shot up Christchurch, New Zealand was also a fitness instructor,” she said.
She then called the shooting “a clear communication that there’s still an idealized body. Nazis really love this idea of an idealized body, and so it makes a lot of sense to me that a fitness instructor…might also think about an idealized body in this thin white supremacist way.”
In 2018, Rashatwar gave a talk at the University of Vermont where she claimed that “thinness is a white supremacist beauty ideal,” which garnered significant attention.

Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification
A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.
One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.
“He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!”
The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.
“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”
Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.
The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.
Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
