Proud Boys etc bringing anti-trans bs to Port Townsend

https://www.ptleader.com/stories/city-of-pt-to-close-multiple-roads-for-saturday-demonstration,85896
(clip of street closure)
Signs were placed Friday down the median of some streets and along the sidewalks of others by the city of Port Townsend. The signs warn that vehicles will be towed.

The planned protest — spearheaded by Vancouver, Washington resident Robert Zerfing and called “Stand For Democracy — is from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday at Pope Marine Park.

The anti-trans rally will protest the Olympic Peninsula YMCA’s decision to ban resident Julie Jaman, who was forbidden from returning to Mountain View Pool after harassing a transgender employee in the women’s changing rooms.


Mayor and others ask people to not engage them, don't visit PT Saturday. A woman long known for causing problems for others has finally gotten her 15 min of Fame.

Proud boy is a term used by ranchers for geldings that still think they have their balls!

This is painful for a small town reliant on Labor Day weekend spending.

Disrupting and crashing another city? And having the gall to call it "Stand For Democracy" - while they make it clear they have democracy, and throw a tantrum because Dark Brandon called them out as the fascists they are?

So how many trans people and drag queens got threatened this time? How many innocent people got attacked this time? Or did everyone just run from Port Townsend and hand it over to these Poltroon Brats?

They don't want citizens to "engage" them? Fine. So when the hell are the cops going to engage them and lock their asses up?
