'Even groomers couldn't defend': Florida spanks drag-queen venues

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is in the process of delivering consequences to a number of venues that featured “Drag Queen Christmas” shows.

RedState reported that the shows were billed as “kid friendly,” but “unless you’re a sexual deviant, that definition was misleading.”

They actually included “bawdy/obscene arrangements of traditional Christmas songs and simulated sex acts,” the report said.

The issue was that one of the venues that contracted for the show, Plaza Live in Orlando, held a liquor license and under Florida law, such performances are not legal if kids are there.

“As a result, the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation sent a warning letter to the Orlando Philharmonic Plaza Foundation, warning them that if they proceeded with the show and allowed children to attend, they were putting their liquor license in jeopardy,” the report explained.

The letter warned the venue the show was “of a sexual nature, involving the exposure or exhibition of sexual organs, simulated sexual activity,” and more.

Those, the state letter warned, “constitute public nuisances, lewd activity, and disorderly conduct when minors are in attendance.”

The venue then was ordered to ban minors.

It didn’t.

And now the state is charging the site with running a “sexually explicit” show while advertising that “all ages welcome.” And, in fact, minors attended and were “knowingly welcomed” to be exposed to “prurient content.”

The state is requesting an order revoking the venue’s liquor license.

The report said a second venue, in Clearwater, also was issued a warning.

The report said the way DeSantis framed the fight, “going after the venues with liquor licenses, he accentuated the fact that children were present. He framed the issue in a way even the groomers couldn’t plausibly defend.”

DeSantis’ press secretary, Bryan Griffin, said, “Governor DeSantis stands to protect the innocence of children, and the governor always follows through when he says he will do something.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: What is behind the current war against America’s children? Why are so many adults killing their unborn children right up to the moment of birth, or even after? Why are millions of kids sexualized virtually from birth, and injected with an experimental “vaccine” proven to be both ineffective and dangerous, then as toddlers transported to events glorifying mentally ill, demonically possessed men dressed as women?

Why are America’s children systematically sexualized at school, and by transgender recruiters on social media platforms like TikTok, seducing many into “identifying” as the opposite gender, or a brand-new imaginary gender, then encouraged to take powerful drugs and hormones and have their healthy breasts amputated or undergo chemical or surgical castration?

Why are our children simultaneously indoctrinated with toxic Marxist ideologies like “critical race theory” intended to condition them to hate and reject their own country, parents, faith, race, gender and themselves? Why are they simultaneously being frightened of the future by being fed lurid, terrifying – and groundless – apocalyptic tales of the imminent destruction of the world due to global warming?

No wonder youth suicides have skyrocketed, as have depression, anxiety, addiction and drug overdoses. Indeed, fentanyl, the No. 1 cause of death of younger Americans 18 to 45, destroys multitudes of children annually.

Make no mistake: The harm being done to America’s children in this multi-front war is not accidental: Children are the primary target.

WHY? How can all this be happening in the greatest nation on earth? Who and what is behind it? And HOW CAN IT BE STOPPED?
