Watch: Armed ANTIFA Thugs Take 'Kid-Friendly Drag Show' From Bad To WORSE In Texas: Rep Slaton
Things are getting crazy in some parts of Texas. Like in Dallas Fort Worth where armed ANTIFA Thugs took things from bad to worse at a 'kid-friendly' drag show.
"It's shocking to a lot of Texans and we just need to stop it. We need to let children be children and protect them from any sexualization," State Rep. Bryan Slaton (R) told Ashley Strohmier and Todd Piro on Fox News.
Masked, black-clad Antifa protesters showed up brandishing weapons at the Sunday morning "drag brunch" in Roanoke.
Police maintained a presence at the event, which took place at the Anderson Distillery and Grill in Roanoke, Texas, and led at times to tense stand-offs between protesters and counter-protesters.

Approximately 20 children and multiple self-proclaimed teachers attended the event where drag queens performed and collected dollar bills, according to footage of the event obtained by journalist Tayler Hansen
In June, Slaton introduced legislation that would ban minors from attending drag shows in the state after the footage went viral showing children attending a drag show at Mr. Misster, a gay bar in North Dallas.
Slaton said "kid-friendly drag shows" do not exist. He believes that children need to be protected and allowed to have a childhood and prevented from being sexualized at a young age.
"We have porn in our school libraries and there's pushback on removing those. There are the drag queen shows with children, and there's pushback on us for wanting to stop that. Then there's the gender modification of children. And the left is pushing back on that," he added.
Slaton said it was "alarming" that Antifa members showed up with guns to protect "grown men wearing ladies' underwear that have to dance provocatively in front of children."
"They're protecting that and trying to intimidate those that were there to speak out against it and bring attention to it that way. But, yes, Antifa apparently is getting involved, and you've crossed the line if you want to protect children, and they want to intimidate you."
Drag queen Trisha Delish (the owner’s son) hosted the “Barrel Babes Drag Brunch,” which featured several other scantily clad drag queens dancing and performing lip-syncing routines. On social media, the owner praised his “team and the inclusive environment we’re creating.”
However, several pro-family grassroots organizations, like Protect Texas Kids and the Texas Family Project, encouraged citizens to petition the Anderson Distillery and Grill to raise the event’s age limit, raising concerns for the “innocence of children.” After the establishment refused, Protect Texas Kids organized a protest outside the venue.

ANTIFA's presence defiantly changed the environment for the worse out there as clashes continued throughout the day. Meanwhile, I'm still waiting on someone to explain how a "scantily clad" grown man dancing around in women's panties can be considered 'kid-friendly'.
