Over the past week, Defend Our Kids Texas, an initiative of Texas Family Project, has suffered hundreds of cyber attacks on their website after working to expose drag shows targeting children. However, TFP has been successful in fending off the hundreds of cyber attacks made as a coordinated effort by what they characterize as “the woke mob organizing on social media.”

In October, Defend Our Kids Texas was founded to serve as “boots on the ground in the fight against the anti-family crusade.” Their mission is to “expose these attacks on innocence by uncovering and aggressively highlighting the left’s antics.”

To that end, the organization encourages citizens to report upcoming drag shows for children through a form on their website.

It’s that website that has become the target of detractors, who have attempted to disable the site over the past week.

TFP is unfazed by these efforts, though. They say they have continued collecting leads on drag shows for children and working to protect Texas kids, despite the countless attacks on their website.

“It’s business as usual here while we watch the blaze atop the collective head of our enemies,” TFP President Chris Hopper said. “No amount of pressure or harassment will stop the Texas Family Project from pursuing our mission to safeguard the innocence of Texas children.”

Groups from the left have continued to attack with “denial-of-service” bots, exceeding 700,000 requests on the site in the span of four hours by “employing tens of thousands of devices,” according to TFP.

“As we monitor the malicious actors operating in plain sight,” TFP said in a statement, “we are collecting relevant identifying information for criminal and potential civil complaints to the extent they further the mission of our organization and movement.”
