You know him for his signature chokeslam.

What you may not know is that WWE wrestler Kane is a political activist, an accomplished author, and a student of history, politics and economics.

Glenn Jacobs, known as Kane in professional wrestling, will speak at Roane State Community College’s Oak Ridge campus on Thursday, Dec. 5 at 6 p.m.

Call it the Clash in the City Room or the Rumble at Roane State if you wish, but Jacobs will not be talking about half-nelsons.

Instead, he’ll share his views on a variety of political issues.

Presented by Roane State’s Arts and Lectures Committee, Kane’s lecture will be held in the City Room, and food will be served.

The event is free and open to the public, but seating will be limited.

Jacobs has written articles for publications such as Freedom Foundation, LewRockwell.com, and the DaileyCenter.com.  

He has also appeared on various television and radio shows as well as Internet podcasts including “Freedom Watch with Judge Andrew Napolitano,” “The Peter Schiff Show,” “The Mike Church Show,” and “The Jerry Doyle Show.”
