Well-defended Orlando drag shows goes on after FL governor's legal threats-and a bomb threat

The Dec 28 drag show in Orlando went on in spite of an explicit threat by Florida's Christian Nationalist governor DeSantis to take legal action against the venue if anyone under 18 was seen inside. This threat was called. As the press hype grew, a protective pro-LGBTQ crowd grew in front of the venue. Two groups of Christian nationalists ineffectually protested the show. A firetruck and ambulance showed up halfway through, it turns out some opponent of the show had called in a bomb threat. The delay was short and the show went on! Proud Boys in uniform were nowhere to be seen, same as in Miami the previous night.

Fascist FAIL: Less than a dozen fascists protest Ft Lauderdale "Drag Queen Christmas" performance

On the 26th of December, less than a dozen fascists including three Proud Boys and several far-right livestreamers showed up outside "A Drag Queen Christmas" at the Ft Lauderdale, FL performance. Fascist livestreamer Chris Nelson assaulted several people including an anti-Fascist camera operator but was unable to stop anyone. He later invaded the venue and started screaming. He was escorted out and issued a trespass warning but not arrested. Only three Proud Boys showed up, an epic fail by the Vice City Proud Boys on their own turf in light rain.

Killer cops GUILTY on all charges in death of Karon Hylton, Karon's mother arrested in court

On Dec 21, Killer DC cops Terrence Sutton and Lt Andrew Zabavsky were found GUILTY on all charges, murder included for the death of Karon Hylton. Both were released on GPS monitoring, unlike Kyron's mother, who was arrested inside the courtroom. Unlike the killer cops, she is scheduled to spend the holidays in a hellhole of a Federal detention center. Pure retaliation by cops and US Marshalls.
