Harassing "Pizzagate" conspiracy theorists driven off from Comet Pizza by dance party

On the 19th of January, fundamentalist Christian "Pizzagate" believers attempted to harass Comet Pizza (again...) only to be driven off by a loud dance party. Their slanderous chants were answered with Lady Ga-ga and other dance music, and soon a full-on dance party began. Not long after, the Fundies packed it in, tapped out, and quit the field.

Fences go up, armed troops deploy in face of Fascist threats to assault Inauguration

On the 15th of January, police agencies began fencing off large parts of downtown DC as they usually do for an Inauguration. In addition, large numbers of armed National Guard troops began showing up in the city. They are intended to protect Biden's Inauguration from armed Trump supporters and outright neo-Nazis, assuming they don't change sides themselves.
