Women's March takes to the streets, faces scrum with Christian nationalists at SCOTUS

On the 22nd of January, the Women's March took to the streets in DC and many other cities for abortion rights. In DC, swarms of Christian nationalists and other forced-birth advocates counterprotested at the Supreme Court, leading to some tense confrontations. Women are NOT going to back down on abortion rights, no matter what the church demands!

PAAU fetus stealers draw counterprotesters to SCOTUS

On Jan 20, so-called "Progressive Anti Abortion Uprising"(a literally fetus-stealing religious group) and their allies showed up at the Supreme Court during the so-called "March 4 Life." Present also at SCOTUS were several antichoice Gay men, helping to pave the way for their own fate if the GOP decides to round up the entire LGBTQ community. A bullhorn in siren mode helped drown out PAAU's lies.

Fundies, Proud Boys harass but cannot shut down final day of Drag Queen Christmas in Clearwater, FL

On the 29th of December, the final performance of "A Drag Queen Christmas" took place in Clearwater, Florida. Members of Cavalry Christian Worship Center (an extreme Christian Cult) and 3 or 4 Proud Boys were unable to overcome defenders much less attempt to shut down the show itself. Again the Governor's interference and threats were unable to stop the show, again the show went on. Some attendees cheered counterprotesters on the way in and out.

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.

Proud Boys harass Jacksonville drag show but abandon field to defenders before show starts

On the 18th of December, the Proud Boys (an extreme-right terrorist group)descended on the venue putting on a drag show in Jacksonville, FL. Defenders prepared for the worst and safely got people inside. Before the show could even begin, the Proud Boys quit the field, possibly to watch football or soccer. There was no sign of them at the Shell station where they had parked their cars.
