CNN hosts must be applauding this move. It’s an intersection of two of their favorite things — The Squad and Antifa!
Over the weekend, a “Straight Pride Parade” was held in Boston with a few hundred attendees and a whole lot of protesters.
The parade was organized by John Hugo who saw the event as an issue of free speech. He wanted to show that the “oppressed majority” of straight Americans have just as much reason to celebrate their sexuality as those that identify with the LGBTQ+ community.
It’s clearly an indicator that society has moved so far into acceptance that having a parade to celebrate where you get your orgasm seems ridiculous to many on the right. Many people — both gay and straight — see the parade as lewd and just want people to be left alone.
Hugo said, “Why is it that other people can have a pride parade and it’s considered OK, and they have about 2,000 LGBTQ events every year, but we want a few hours and they all get out and protest and give us the finger and swear at us? Give me a break. The people who demand tolerance are the most intolerant. That’s hypocrisy.”
Apparently, you can’t have a parade that is taken so seriously by its own organizers that the Grand Marshal was the gay, conservative firebrand, Milo Yiannopoulos, who is married to a black man.
The wokescolds don’t have a sense of humor and wouldn’t know what it is if it jumped up and organized a parade right in front of… oh, wait.
They decided to fight the “intolerance” of the straight pride with… more intolerance!
Good plan, wokescolds!
Three dozen people were arrested and 4 officers were injured in the “Love trumps hate” protest.
Chants of hatred and disgust were tossed across police barricades between protesters and supporters of the Straight Pride Parade on Saturday which ended in 36 arrests and 4 injured officers, according to Boston police.
Tensions flared in the crowd of about 200 people which was composed mostly of counterprotesters and peppered with far left groups like Antifa. The controversial parade garnered national attention since its inception in June.
“We’re covered in black so when we attack these guys we can’t be prosecuted,” said Jon Crowley, an Antifa member who told the Herald that he felt violence was the only way to deal with the people marching in the parade, which went from Copley Square to City Hall Plaza. “They are fascists, 100%. How else are you going to get them to shut up?”

Never fear, brave Antifa vigilantes wearing masks to conceal your identity! Half of the Squad has got your back. (In this case, it’s the two dumb ones, not the two Muslim anti-Semites.)
Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez(D-NY) and Ayanna Pressley(D-MA) decided that it was worth expending some of their social capital to help raise money for the obvious victims of police overreach. Law enforcement officers get so touchy when a masked group of people decides to forcibly impose “social justice” on the wrongthinkers who are holding a peaceful parade.
These brave “agents of change” who are covering their face and bringing makeshift weapons and making public declarations to a newspaper that they intend to physically attack the people that they disagree with are oppressed as well as misunderstood, isn’t that right, Rep. Pressley?
Join me right now in making a contribution. TY to the allies & accomplices who stood in the gap & laid their bodies on the line today in affront #LGBT hate march. To everyone feeling unseen & vulnerable today…we got you. Equitable outrage. Our destinies & freedoms are tied. https://t.co/xwHQDX7UG2

AOC mocked the parade and doesn’t realize that her tweet making snarky comments about the “pride” of the marchers is precisely the argument against continuing to have gay pride parades. She then says that the straight pride people should “grow up” and hopes that they will join the LGBTQ community at the next Pride parade.
For men who are allegedly so “proud” of being straight, they seem to show real incompetence at attracting women to their event.
Seems more like a “I-Struggle-With-Masculinity” parade to me. ??♀️

Do you see how this works? You’re shamed if you don’t join the Pride parade, but mocked called horrible names if you try to expose how ludicrous it is to hold these parades in 2019 where acceptance and tolerance is the norm and no longer the exception. The vast majority of people don’t care what your sexual orientation is as long as you and your partner are both consenting adults. Many people may still view it as sin, but that’s really between them and their God, and not really anyone else’s business.
But, AOC apparently wasn’t happy with just one dumb tweet, she decided to push it to the extreme. She also called the event a “white supremacist parade” which — is pretty weird.
One way to support the local LGBTQ community impacted by Boston’s white supremacist parade?

Andy Ngo, the reporter that was assaulted in Portland in July, posted the list of people who were arrested for causing a disturbance at the Straight Pride parade. The reasons that they were taken into custody ranged from disorderly conduct and resisting arrest to assault and battery on a police officer, assault with a dangerous weapon, and fighting in public.

These people are awful.
This story reminds me of a chapter in a book I’ve read recently…
We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.
But what about 2020? Could a moral person pull a lever for Trump with their integrity intact? Would Jesus himself vote for Trump? We’re glad you asked. There’s a brand new book that covers precisely that question:
“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.
Would Jesus ever choose someone, with a less than stellar past, to be a leader? Would Jesus be cool with how Trump blasts CNN, The Left, and his feckless ‘compadres’ on The Right? What about Health Care? Would the Great Physician give Trump’s opposition to ObamaCare the ‘two thumbs up?’ Find out in this BEST-SELLER!
