On November 3 2022, a viral tweet with video indicated that Tulsa, Oklahoma’s Donut Hole was firebombed “after hosting a drag show”:
The Donut Hole in Tulsa, Oklahoma was firebombed after it hosted a drag show. This is the inevitable outcome of the stochastic terror incited by Tucker Carlson, Libs of Tiktok, Christopher Rufo, and Matt Walsh. Stirring moral panics for political points has violent outcomes. pic.twitter.com/KPHhBbMJrp

In the text portion of the tweet, civil rights attorney Alejandra Caraballo said that the clip was the “inevitable outcome of the stochastic terror incited by Tucker Carlson, Libs of Tiktok, Christopher Rufo, and Matt Walsh.” A 30-second long video was attached to the tweet, published the morning after United States President Joe Biden spoke at length about the chilling effect of politically motivated violence.
In the video, a man in a red baseball cap with white writing is seen approaching a storefront before breaking its windows with a baseball bat. That individual then ignites a Molotov cocktail, throwing it through the broken windows before running away from the scene.
Tucker Carlson shows how kids are being exposed to sexually inappropriate content in schools and at drag shows across the country:
"To be clear what this is: Children being used as props in the sexual fantasies of adults." pic.twitter.com/reBOkxzoWn

Tucker Carlson once again encouraged violence against LGBTQ people tonight.
He ended his propaganda segment about drag queens by telling his viewers that "people should definitely arm themselves". pic.twitter.com/PHWJm02uyz

This is what a “family friendly” drag show looks like. Drag queens spreading their legs for little kids to tip them. pic.twitter.com/Byf7jd6xi2

And yes, drag shows involving children are explicitly designed to re-engineer child sexuality. As the academic queer theorists have explained, these performances are "site[s] of queer pleasure" used to liberate children from "the rhetoric of childhood innocence."

NEW: Left-wing activists in Denver, Colorado, are hosting a child drag show this weekend, featuring "queens, kings & non-binary performers" as young as eight years old. pic.twitter.com/0wo0sYoEiX

Conservatives should start using the phrase "trans stripper" in lieu of "drag queen." It has a more lurid set of connotations and shifts the debate to sexualization.

Here’s a drag queen dancing suggestively for a young girl while the adults look on and cheer

.@MattWalshBlog on the all-ages drag show in Memphis that got shut down: "Nobody is showing up to protest adult-only drag shows…These female-mocking minstrel shows have existed in this country for decades, and they were never a major issue until they got the kids involved." pic.twitter.com/kjinUuP2XG

Yes, Democrats please go with this. Come out fully in support of child drag shows. Shout about it from the rooftops. Let your groomer flag fly. Make sure all the voters know. https://t.co/8Dp2CW7XAr

On October 31 2022, KTUL reported that the Donut Hole had been “vandalized” a second time. KTUL did not explain how the establishment was vandalized, but reported that the incident occurred right before the Donut Hole planned to host an event:
After community members helped to fix up the shop and donate money to a GoFundMe, the business was planning another event on Nov. 3  to say thank you for the community.
After the vandalism, The Queens Dirty Dozen said on Facebook that the event is now canceled.
KTUL embedded a post published to Facebook on October 31 2022. Video appended to the post included date and timestamps, showing the same firebombing just after 2:30 am on October 31 2022.
In a status update attached to the minute-long video, the business apologized and disclosed that the two attacks in a two-week span sufficiently terrified its owners enough to cancel the second event:
Love will always win but enough is enough. Due to the windows being smashed out again and a fire, we are forced to cancel our event. We tried. And we’re sorry.
A viral November 3 2022 tweet claimed that Tulsa, Oklahoma’s Donut Hole was “firebombed” after hosting a drag show; the tweet pointed to violent rhetoric and commentary from right-wing pundits such as Tucker Carlson, @libsoftiktok, Chris Rufo, and Matt Walsh, all of whom regularly sought to whip up anger about “drag shows.” On October 15 2022, the Donut Hole had drag queens serve donuts at night; the establishment was vandalized the same day. On October 31 2022 (with another event planned for November 3 2022), an individual in a red baseball hat bashed the shop’s window in with a baseball bat and threw a Molotov cocktail through the broken glass. In response, the business stated that due to “the windows being smashed out again and a fire, we are forced to cancel our event.”
