WATCH: Texas open carry advocates fume after ‘skanky topless libtards’ disrupt pro-gun rally
Come and Take It Texas, a group affiliated with the open carry movement, is complaining that topless protestors are ruining their monthly walks in support of gun rights.
They are being “trolled by skanky topless libtards,” one post on the group’s Facebook page reads. Another post identifies the counter-protestors as members of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (MDA), even though they made no claim to being affiliated with that organization.
The topless counter-protestors carried signs that read, “You realize that everyone thinks you’re overcompensating for your teeny tiny ‘gun’ right?” and “Boobs for peace.” The women confronted the open carry advocates and said that as long as they openly carried their weapons, the counter-protestors would bare their breasts.
One of the open carry advocates, Tom Jefferson, claimed that counter-protestors harassed them. “They followed us into a small coffee shop and called us the Aryan Brotherhood,” he said. “They continually used terms like white pride and white power.”
Nationally syndicated conservative radio host Dana Loesch responded to the protest on Twitter:

At which point the Founder of MDA, Shannon Watts, indicated that these protestors did not belong to her group:

One of the protestors involved confirmed her non-membership in MDA on Facebook:
