Masked, black-clad Antifa activists armed with AR-style rifles showed up in force in Texas, of all places, on Sunday to presumably protect a child-friendly drag queen “brunch.”
Of course, open carry of long guns is legal in Texas, but this doesn’t wipe the violent history of the domestic terrorist group that is seen by many as the enforcement arm of the Democratic Party — you may notice a substantially reduced Antifa footprint in America since President Joe Biden took office.

The drag event took place at the Anderson Distillery and Grill in Roanoke, Texas, which is a suburb of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Police were on hand as protestors opposing the depravity faced off with participants who wholeheartedly supported what can only be described as the grooming of young children.
One America News Network host Jack Posobiec aptly characterized the day’s events in a tweet: “Armed left-wing paramilitaries took up position outside a bar in Roanoke, TX today while children were handed over to drag queens inside.”

As for what children were exposed to, here is a sampling of the twisted behavior being mainstreamed by the left:

Protect Texas Kids took part in protesting the event, saying on its website that the group will “take a stand in protecting kids from the toxic, indoctrinating agenda of the left by exposing the truth behind the ongoing assault that has been ruthlessly waged against our children’s identities, core development, and traditional values.”
Protect Texas Kids founder Kelly Neidert rallied supporters to “put some pressure on the restaurant.”
“They had people throughout the parking garage, on the roof and on some of the other floors with their guns,” she told Fox News. “And then they had people out right by the bar with more guns. And then people kind of throughout the area, just monitoring what was going on. And they were walking people from the bar to their cars.”
Dubbing themselves the Elm Fork John Brown Gun Club, the armed Antifa gunmen touted their actions:

A video making the rounds captures a brave woman who identifies herself as a local defiantly confronting the armed activists, telling them to get out of her town in a not-so-friendly manner after one of them demanded that she go to the other side of the street.
Caution: Adult Language
Jay Anderson, the owner of the Anderson Distillery and Grill, engaged in a game of semantics in a Facebook post. in response to the backlash to the drag show.
“It was never my intention to host an event that would result in controversy, hate and divisiveness,” Anderson wrote. “It is my intention to welcome people from ALL walks of life into Anderson Distillery & Grill.”
“The live entertainment that will take place will be similar to a variety show with professional drag artists lip-synching, dancing and performing comedy routines. The show will be hosted by my son, Bailey (a.k.a. Trisha Delish), who will ensure the show remains clean,” he added.
