Our local brigade of basement-dwelling Nazis got out of their clown cars somewhere in the Seaport today and succeeded in shutting down a drag-queen story hour.
Patty Bourrée has been leading one of the story times for kids every other Sunday this summer in the Seaport's Paseo on Harbor Way, but canceled today's after she saw neck-gaitered Nazis outside, separated from the venue by a line of Boston cops:
I really hate that I cancelled a story hour today because two protest groups were present, but I can’t put myself (and the kids!) in a potentially violent situation especially when I don’t trust that the BPD will protect me in a worst case scenario.
She added, though:
I want it to be known though for the losers who I know creep on my social media that Drag Queen Story Hour Boston is actively planning to offer story times to the families that are asking for them in ways that will be safer for the performers and the kids
Waltham Night's Watch, which follows the brownpants, reports they took to Telegram to cackle about their success in actually getting to an event on time, unlike last month in Jamaica Plain, when they showed up just as a similar event was ending and then their obersturmbannführer got arrested.
Just last week, US Attorney Rachael Rollins announced a new hotline to report hate acts, at 1-83-END-H8-NOW (1-833-634-8669).
