‘Donuts and Drag’ event at Orange County school canceled
Principal said Florida Department of Education questioned whether event was age-appropriate
WKMG, Channel 6, Orlando’s local Antifa television affiliate, tearfully broke the news to its dozens of far-left viewers and website readers that the Orange County School District had canceled a “Drag” event.
Even though school board member Alicia Farrant conceded that the cancelation was “warranted,” she was quick to disclaim any responsibility. Farrant said she played no part in the decision to cancel the drag event and that it was parents who contacted Florida’s state department of education directly.
As one might expect with WKMG, wholly owned by the Washington Post’s Graham Media and named for Katherine Meyer Graham, comment censorship was in high gear.
There were the usual “CONTENT DISABLED” labels where a thoughtful comment once stood. And, of course, nobody knows how many commenters were shadow banned. They made their comment, it appears to be up. But they have no idea that nobody is seeing their comment unless they clear their cookies and view the web page again. Sure enough, there will be no trace of their contribution.
The usual stable of far-left Marxists had their comments untouched.
Farrant was elected to the Orange County school board in 2022.
Regardless of Farrant’s role in the cancelation of this perversion, the fact that parents took control, by-passed the local school board (likely out of concern that that their complaints would fall on deaf ears in this far-left Democrat county), and went to the state directly is a shot across the bow to the Marxists in Florida’s many municipal Democrat shit holes.
Congratulations, parents in District Three. Good work. Please don’t sit on your laurels. Keep paying attention and keep the politicians’ feet to the fire.
WKMG Channel 6, Orlando’s local Antifa television affiliate, informed us of the arrest of three young men, high school graduates (with honors) all, who were just waiting to be accepted into Harvard’s pre-med program.
Sadly, these gentlemen were at the wrong place at the wrong time and found themselves being caged by the racist popo of the Osceola County Sheriff’s Department.
It really was just a big misunderstanding. See, they thought that this really was their house and they thought that it was their car, too. Because their house and their car look exactly the same. Ya feel me?
Upon being taken into custody, one of the yoot’ could be overheard yelling, “Y’all just a bunch of raysiss. Up in O’Town, Sheriff Mina, he come out personally and kneel like he gimme a blow job.”
As WKMG put this story up early yesterday evening – and it’s not even 9am at the time of writing this post – their Antifa interns haven’t had time to scrub the comments yet.
At press time, the Osceola County Sheriff’s Department had yet to release the middle school graduation photos of the respective gentlemen.
“Toronto is a kind of New York operated by the Swiss”
— Sir Peter Ustinov (1928-2004), 1987
Analysis by Letters To The Beast
Toronto radio station 680 News, a Rogers Media radio station which now brands itself as CityNews, recently reported on a Toronto gym which is now offering free self defense lessons for those who travel on public transit in Toronto.
Toronto – as with most of Canada – was legendary for its safety and cleanliness. It was called “Toronto the good.”
Sadly, decades of unrestricted, open immigration along with with lenient criminal justice polices and a populace that has always been disarmed have caught up with them.
Those of us old enough to remember will recall that it wasn’t until 1984 when Bernhard Goetz, then 37, had finally had enough (along with the entire City of New York).
Goetz plugged four thugs who had tried to rob him on a subway train.
While Toronto’s transit isn’t as plagued by graffiti today as New York was prior to 1989, the crime has become just as proportionate. And for thugs in Toronto, it’s a free-for-all. They are safe to rob, to assault, even kill with confidence. Unlike New York, their victims in Toronto are unlikely to even have the means to fight back.
This photograph, taken in Orlando, Florida on April 26, 2017, would get your humble correspondent arrested in Canada even though the “gun” pictured is a Marksman .177 pellet gun, purchased at a Canadian sporting goods retailer (Canadian Tire).
Thugs in Canada need not worry about their victims being “armed” with toy guns, let alone the real thing.

The problem is not just related to Toronto.
Canadians have been historically loathe to embrace freedom. Whether it’s freedom of speech, freedom to defend one self, freedom of health care, freedom to keep as much as one’s own money as possible, such ideas are dismissed as “American style.”
Ironically, for decades, the Toronto Transit Commission and the left-wing politicians who run it have demanded more and more taxpayer funding, warning that failure to do would create an “American-style transit system.” And now, despite generous funding, an “American-style transit system” is exactly what they have. Just not in the way they expected.
Sadly, for Canadians, an opportunity to reverse their decline was missed during the Harper era (a theme covered extensively in previous Letters To The Beast posts). Despite having nearly a decade of conservative majority rule, Harper, nor his attorneys general (most notably Robert “Rob” Nicholson) never afforded Canadians the opportunity to defend themselves. This despite a tough-talking, “tough on crime” facade from Nicholson and “public safety minister” (and teenage horizontal jogging enthusiast) Victor “Vic” Toews.
After a string of pathetic leaders, Pierre Poilievre is finally saying all the right things as head of the Conservative Party of Canada. Poilievre has to keep his nerve and ignore his country’s corporate media. Stephen Harper did a good job of this and kept getting re-elected in the process.
What conservative politicians consistently fail to understand is that freedom is a winning issue. It’s when they try to appeal to a “bigger tent” that they lose their way, they lose elections and end up paving the way for Liberal rule (see Justin Trudeau.
Will Pierre Poilievre have the backbone to call for Canadians to be allowed to arm themselves? Will he call for conceal carry permits? Will he even go so far as to allow no-permit carry? In all three cases, probably not.
But good armed Canadians facing against armed bad people who, in many cases, aren’t even Canadians, is the only thing that’s going to put the brakes on the violence.
Even the most leftist of left-wing Canadians (which would be most of them) would do well to remember that the most vociferous, anti-gun politicians are, themselves, surrounded by heavily-armed security.
Take it from this Canadian living in Florida: An armed society is a polite society.
Canadians need to snap out of it. Because it’s only a matter of time before somebody really does snaps, just like Bernie Goetz.

WKMG Channel 6, Orlando’s Graham Media / Washington Post – owned Antifa television outfit continues to embarrass itself as it tries to stumble and backtrack its previous “covid-19” claims.
They’re not quite there yet, but we have reached the point where they can’t ignore what we already know: the coronavirus came from a lab in china. Not a bat cave. Not a dog meat market. A U.S.-government-funded biosafety level four lab in Wuhan, China.
Letters To The Beast eagerly looks forward to an open discussion in the moribund corporate media regarding “sudden deaths,” heart attacks in children, sick pilots and other obvious consequences of “the vaccine.”
Let’s go back and look at what Channel 6 transcribed for its colleagues in the presstitute and whorespondent community ( remind me not to move there ) :
Strangely, WKMG’s regular stable of Marxist commenters were nowhere to be seen on this one. Even more unusual, the sole comment was from a conservative viewer (one of the few able to get his contributions past the censors).
Your humble correspondent attempted to reply “…or banned or shadow banned.” The comment was shadow banned. Imagine that.
The pitiful low level of published comment engagement is an admission of Graham Media’s blatant censorship. Advertisers should be looking at the comment section and asking Channel 6: If you have so few people participating in the comments, is your website – and more importantly – broadcast television viewership as pathetically low?
Of course, like all corporate media, most of WKMG’s advertisers are drug dealers like Pfizer. They don’t care about ratings. They don’t care if nobody “asks their doctor.” All they care about is spending money on advertising and keeping the presstitute media in line.
First, friends, I’d like to apologize for my absence for the past few years.
I would like to thank one of my most prolific commenters, “F. Yeue,” as well as others who have turned a post from September 11, 2015 into a de-facto repository of comments censored by Canada’s state broadcaster, the CBC.
More “Content Disabled” Censorship from the CBC and its partners at I.C.U.C. and Viafoura
“F,” Your comments are always welcome. Thank you so much.
The “global plandemic” as the red-headed wonder, Jen Psaki, referred to it, gave me lots of time throughout 2020 and into 2021 to keep this humble offering updated.
I am pleased to report that, since the last post in March of 2021, I have not only returned to my paying job, but that job has kept me going six (sometimes seven) days per week. My wife has been working equally hard.
Owing to the world that we’re all living in right now, you’ll forgive me if I skip over all of the details about myself. As I have alluded to before in previous posts, my name is Dave, I drive a bus and I live in Orlando, Florida. I am a legal immigrant from Canada who formerly lived in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Unfortunately, it is those aforementioned six-and-seven-day work weeks that brings me to this subject matter.
At risk of being accused of panhandling or grifting, I’ll just say what I have to say.
My wife, who was coerced by her employer into getting “vaccinated” back in 2021, was found unresponsive at her workplace at one of the larger theme parks in Orlando (no, she doesn’t work at the rat trap). She was transported to a local hospital and – thank God – subsequently released. She had medical issues long before she got “vaxxed.” The Pfizer clot-shot has only added to her problems.
In fact, it was those medical issues that prompted our move from Ontario to Florida. We sure didn’t come down here for the money.
In February, I suffered medical issues of my own which prompted my being transported to another hospital and spending some time in their cardiac intensive care unit.
While we are insured through our employer (we both work at the same park, doing different jobs in different areas), the medical bills we were left with still amount to the thousands of dollars.
In my case, two nitroglycerin tablets administered to me when I arrived in the emergency room to prevent my condition from becoming a full-blown heart attack cost $1,200. The hospital, inexplicably, charged me for 25 of those pills.
The CT-Scan was $17,000. The total hospital bill, in my case, was over $76,000. I’m told we got off easy.
The situation with regards to my wife’s ambulance is rather ironic. Back in 2019, while visiting the park’s company doctor, she had a heart attack right there in the office. The park contracts with American Medical Response for its ambulance service. It took 20 minutes for that ambulance to arrive. When they did arrive, the paramedics gave the doctor and office staff (excrement) for calling the company directly for their ambulance and not doing what any of us would do: call 9-1-1. There is a fire station a mile from the park and the Orlando Fire Department could have had an ambulance there in just a few minutes.
Going back to my wife, her bill was over $40,000. She recently got a letter from Cigna advising her to expect an additional bill from the ambulance company for over $1,000. While she lay unconscious, an ambulance owned by a company which, apparently, is out of Cigna’s network of approved providers was dispatched. And, for that, she is on the hook.
Unfortunately, she received a sizable bill from that stay. Most of which we were unable to pay (having been deemed “non-essential” by Mr. Trump on Friday, March 13, 2020.
On November 9, 2016, I posted an editorial praising the election of Mr. Trump
Given what has happened since then – particularly since the “emergency,” I have repudiated those views. Of course, I can’t vote anyway. Not that it makes a difference any longer.
So, friends, I’m sorry to give you this sob story. But if you happen to have a couple of dollars you could bear to part with, we’d certainly be grateful.
For the benefit of those who have heard of those legendary American hospital bills but have never seen one, here you go!
I apologize for the image quality (ie having to take a picture of the phone screen). For some reason – couldn’t imagine why – the hospital’s billing app doesn’t allow direct screenshots to be taken due to “security reasons.”
The propagators of the press release, the obscure Geophysical Research Letters (peer reviewed!) may have at least learned from The Independent and pushed back their forecast to the 22nd century, when most of us plan to be dead.
It was not made immediately clear why not freezing to death, a longer growing season, and going out in shorts and tee-shirts was a bad thing.
Researchers behind the study out of China warn that a longer summer season will likely have “far-reaching impacts” on agriculture, human health, and the environment.
Yeah, that’s right CTV. More food will be grown, better quality food will be grown, and billions fewer will starve.
With regard to CTV’s original premise regarding the existence of global warming…
The closing of HuffPost Canada and HuffPost Québec was an abrupt development for the journalists who were in the middle of a workday when their new ownership made the announcement.
“It was devastating,” Maija Kappler, lifestyle editor for HuffPost Canada, told CBC News in an email on Tuesday. “I love my job so much, and I know it will be really difficult to find another one in journalism.”
The outlet said in a statement on its website that it will “no longer be publishing content” as of March 9, while existing content will be kept as an online archive. The site was shut down later in the day.
“People who were working on stories weren’t able to finish and publish them,” Kappler said. “There are stories written by freelancers that have been submitted and were ready to be published, but we have no way to get them out now.
BuzzFeed recently acquired HuffPost from Verizon. BuzzFeed, which also announced layoffs for the U.S. newsroom on Tuesday, said it’s closing HuffPost Canada and HuffPost Québec’s operations and laying off 23 workers as part of a broad restructuring plan for the company.
Gee, that’s a real shame.
Your humble correspondent is so old, he remembers when Canadian newsradio network CKO abruptly went off the air back in 1989.
Naturally, the state broadcaster disabled comments lest the more unsympathetic readers suggest the Huffing-and-Puffington Post’s newly-unemployed typists learn to code. Or perhaps set up their own website as a means of getting their work published. Naturally, this writer wouldn’t have the first idea how to do that.
“I’ve been with HuffPost Canada for about two-and-a-half years, but some of my coworkers have worked here since it was launched,” she said. “I can only imagine how hard it is for them.”
Welcome to the real world, Sweetie. The COVID hoax you have been propagating for the past year has put hundreds of millions of people in Canada, the United States and worldwide out of work.
While The Mothercorp neglected to enable commenting regarding the termination of HuffPost’s Canadian staff, readers were offered the chance to add their two cents (presumably, two Canadian cents) worth in an article having to do with a newly-discovered organism which is able to decapitate itself (or otherwise have its head severed) and grow a new head.
Media industry workers would do well to remember that, while they may revel in their status as “essential,” they are definitely expendable to the firms who fund their direct deposits every Friday.
Perhaps they should start writing articles exposing the fraud of COVID testing, the highly-inflated “case numbers,” the number of purported COVID deaths which are actually due to car wrecks, disease, old age, etc.
They could write about how the failed global warming / climate change playbook has been applied to “COVID” and has worked masterfully in achieving the exact same goals: mass unemployment, de-industrialization, a renter society and debt-funded universal basic income.
They might want to get started before we all become China (hint: despite what you’ve heard, that’s not a good thing.)
For those that cling to the belief that our solution to this crisis can be found in the Constitution or merely hoping the vote goes our way in 2022 and 2024, I offer these gems from the Constitution of the Democratic Peoples’ Republic of Korea (North Korea)

If you don’t think it can happen here in America, ask yourself: On January 25, 2020, did you ever think you could be imprisoned in your home, be made to wear an article of clothing across your face, be fined or imprisoned for running an un-approved business and see a corrupt, racist dementia patient assemble “most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.”
