Two Anti-Drag Extremists Arrested After Breaking Into Apartment Building Of Gay NYC Councilman [VIDEO]

The New York Daily News reports:

Two people were arrested Monday for breaking into a New York City Council member’s apartment building as crazed anti-LGBTQ activists targeted the pol, police said. The individuals, said to be furious over a recent drag story time session at a Manhattan library, targeted Councilman Erik Bottcher’s home and office, according to cops.

The group call themselves “gays against groomers,” the lawmaker said in a tweet. They struck first at the Democrat’s Chelsea office around 3 p.m., cops said. Later, the group gathered outside the councilman’s apartment building, chalking hateful, threatening phrases on the sidewalk.

Two women broke into the building around 5 p.m., prompting Bottcher’s superintendent to call the police.

NBC News reports:

Protesters trying to shut down a reading event geared toward neurodiverse children at a branch of the New York City Public Library were met by a wall of counterprotesters.

The group demonstrating on Saturday brought handmade signs covering a spectrum of issues, with messages protesting everything from fascism to grooming to gender identity.

A representative for the New York Public Library said the event went on as planned and added that the library would continue to offer programs supporting diverse voices.
