It appears that two scheduled panels events for babyfurs at Califur has been cancelled due to threats of violence towards the panelists and venue.

The fascinating part is just how many people this could *be* at this point:

-Raiders looking for revenge
-People trying to 'police' the West Coast fandom after RF
-Furries who don't want the BDSM peanut butter on their furry chocolate
-BDSM people who don't want the furry peanut butter on their bondage chocolate
-Internet people for yuks (unlikely due to the targeting)
-Kage, for yuks

And many more!

This was organized by "Thefurredreich" AKA Casey Hoerth and his "altfur" Discord group for nazifurs.

If so, that's closely related to point one.

Also if so, regardless of their actual support numbers, the fuzzy culture wars might be goin' for a while.

AltFurry definitely has something to do with it. They were actively trying to get the panel shut down. They tweeted pedophile art at the hotel's twitter, and I've been seeing this "leaked" screenshot from their discord being passed around in which they call the hotel posing as local news to "do a story on the pedos". Hilariously, he gets told he did a shitty job by another member.

They do, however, claim that they are not calling in threats. So who knows.
