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.

Counterprotesters hold the line as Fascists, Christian nationalists return to DC for J6 anniversary

On the 6th of January, 2023, some of the same Trump supporters and general Fascists who fought two years ago that day returned to the Capitol and also showed up at the US Supreme Court. Some of the counterprotesters threw the Proud Boys slogan "fuck around and find out" back at the fascists by saying Ashli Babbatt did exactly that.

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.
