A video showing a group of protesters displaying Nazi flags and appearing to shout “Fu*k you Biden” followed by “F**k you fa*gots” on a megaphone in front of a children’s museum in Florida has gone viral on TikTok.
The video, shot in front of the Explorations V Children’s Museum in Lakeland, Florida, shows about seven people gathered outside the museum with at least one person in the group carrying a pole bearing swastika flags.
“Unbelievable for this to happen in our downtown area while families are trying to enjoy their evening,” wrote TikToker @amberc0825, who posted the video over the weekend.

“This is appalling! And in front of a kids museum,” wrote one commenter.
“That’s my hometown. I’m so glad I’m gone. What a disgrace,” wrote another.
The incident comes on the same weekend a group of about 15 Neo-Nazis participated in a demonstration outside the main entrance to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The group carried signs and flags with Nazi imagery and banners supporting Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Activist and organizer Shannon Watts tweeted: “Two dozen white supremacists are outside the main Disney World entrance in Orlando right now, marching with signs featuring Gov DeSantis’s face, swastikas, the n-word and homophobic slurs. This is the 2023 Republican Party.”
It also comes after a 19-year-old man who admired Adolf Hitler crashed a U-Haul into security barriers near the White House, waved a Nazi flag and threatened President Joe Biden, according to court documents.
