HUGE VICTORY Matt Gaetz Gets Child-Friendly Drag Show on Military Base Canceled

Rep. Matt Gaetz has managed to get a planned “child-friendly” drag queen show on Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada canceled after he demanded answers from Pentagon leaders after they claimed they did not support them on bases.

Gaetz tweeted, “HUGE VICTORY: The Department of Defense has CANCELED a scheduled ‘child-friendly’ drag show after I demanded answers from @SecDef Austin and General Milley!”

A screenshot of the post by the Nellis LGBTQ+ Pride Council Facebook page was obtained by Breitbart, which stated:

“The Nellis LGBTQ+ Pride Council is saddened to inform you that we are no longer able to host our annual Pride Month Drag Show on Nellis AFB. We have received notification that the DoD has directed Commanders not to host Drag events on military installations.”

The post went on to list other Pride events on the base that were not drag shows, including a panel, a “Paint with Pride” and color run at the base gym, a mixer, and a commemoration walk.

“We will continue to celebrate the contributions of the LGBTQ+ community during PRIDE month. Come show your PRIDE with us!” it said.

Gaetz previously grilled Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley on whether they supported drag queen shows at military bases.

But after the officials claimed they were unaware of the drag queen shows, Gaetz presented them with evidence and handed Milley new articles of various drag queen events hosted on military bases.

Both Austin and Milley ultimately confirmed they did not support the events on base.

“Drag queen story hours is not something that the Department funds,” Austin said at the time.

In May, Gaetz sent a letter to Austin and Milley demanding answers about why a drag show was planned at the Nellis Air Force Base for June 1.

Air Force leaders approved the drag show. However, Austin and Milley told the Air Force it is not DOD policy to fund drag shows on bases, forcing them to cancel the show.

Milley appeared “visibly angry” about the decision to host the event on base.

“Consistent with Secretary Austin’s congressional testimony, the Air Force will not host drag events at its installations or facilities. Commanders have been directed to either cancel or relocate these events to an off-base location,” an Air Force official told NBC News.

Pentagon deputy press secretary Sabrina Singh told NBC News:

“Per DoD Joint Ethics Regulation (JER), certain criteria must be met for persons or organizations acting in non-Federal capacity to use DoD facilities and equipment. As Secretary Austin has said, the DOD will not host drag events at U.S. military installations or facilities. Hosting these types of events in federally funded facilities is not a suitable use of DOD resources.”

Good, I guess. Didn’t Matt already get these drag shows cancelled on military bases? Or verify that they were cancelled? The government (to include the military) LIE to Americans. Just like we couldn’t believe them the first time, can’t believe them now. Probably just rescheduled this grooming event. There needs to be actual consequences for such things.

It is not the DODs policy to fund Drag Queen shows where the public would know.

The emasculated males of the GOP can learn something here. Finally, after MT Green, Boebert, Stefanik and Gabbard take action the males grew some b***s. You don’t play nice with bullies; aka lib communist. You toss out the Queensberry rules and go MMA all over their rear ends. Bullies can’t handle their own c**p being used against them. Now imagine that, it’s working.
