A group of fanatical anti-gay demonstrators holding signs that say “homo sex is sin” and “judgment is coming” have assembled outside Comet Ping Pong, the gay owned Chevy Chase pizzeria that’s been the victim of harassment and a gunman incident over the conspiracy theory known as Pizzagate.
The group, calling themselves the “Official Street Preachers,” have been harassing passersby and customers over megaphones, calling them “wicked perverts” and “sinners.”
Comet Ping Pong, owned by gay businessman James Alefantis, was the target of a fake news stories in November that attempted to link it to a non-existent pedophile ring said to be operated by supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
D.C. police said the fake stories prompted a 28-year-old North Carolina man to drive to D.C. on Dec. 4 and enter Comet Ping Pong while carrying an assault rifle in an attempt to rescue what he believed were children being sold for sex in a hidden room in the basement of the restaurant. The restaurant has no basement.
“They’re saying terrible things about homosexuals, and how we’re all going to burn in hell,” Washingtonian quoted Matt Carr, owner of an adjacent restaurant called Little Red Fox, as saying. “I’m just outside watching, trying to make sure they don’t attack our customers or anything,” Washingtonian quoted him as saying.
