This weekend, James “Doc” Greene barged into a Houston library where a drag queen was scheduled to read a story to children. When he refused to leave, police were called and he was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon.
Speaking to Outsmart Magazine, a spokesperson for the Houston Police Department said that Greene had been previously banned from the library for filming children and other similar antics.
Greene, who is the host of Raging Elephants Radio, recorded the incident and posted the video to YouTube.
In the video showing his exchange with police and library staff, Greene flashed a badge in an attempt to claim that he’s a member of the media. “We have a bunch of homosexuals that are molesting children,” he says. “They are doing it with your help.”
After repeatedly refusing to leave, officers handcuffed Greene and took away his firearm. He later complained of chest pains and was taken to a hospital and later released. No charges have been filed against him.
In an interview posted on Facebook after the incident, Greene donned a MAGA hat and sat in front of a cardboard cut-out of President Trump and Ronald Reagan and claimed that he was arrested for being a “white Christian” and accused one of the library staff of being a “satanist.”
“This cannot stand, we must fight back,” Greene said.
Police reportedly plan to increase security at the library, which hosts “Drag Queen Storytime” once a month. The event is a lightning rod for anti-LGBT protesters and religious conservatives, along with counter-demonstrators who support the event.
According to The Independent, a federal judge earlier this month dismissed a lawsuit brought by a group of conservative Christian men who claimed the event violates their religious rights.
The drag queen who read to the children on the day of Greene’s arrest said that his presence did nothing to slow down the event.
“While his intention might have been to ruin the day for everyone involved, it completely failed,” Regina Blake-DuBois said. “Library management and HPD kept him away from the kids, and we had no knowledge it even happened until we were done.”
