When I saw the headline I did a double-take. Who, in San Francisco of all cities, could possibly object to the annual “Pride” Parade? Had the Westboro Baptists come to town? Was some alt-right hate group trying to make a name for itself? Perhaps an offshoot of Super Happy Fun America had taken to the streets to demand a West Coast Straight Pride Parade?
But no, it was leftists. It’s always leftists.
They chanted “Stonewall was a riot” and held up a banner reading “Queer and Trans against Kops and Korps.” Apparently they are “demanding that there be no police or corporations present at the parade.”
How stupid are these people? Do they not recognize their own power; that the police and the corporations are now on their side? The police are not there to intimidate or shut down the parade, they are there to escort and protect it, and to prevent it from being shut down by idiot protestors like them.
As for the corporations, they not only provide the sponsorship funding that pays for the annual parade, they are also busy sponsoring “Pride Month” events in the workplace and indoctrinating their own employees in LGBTQIA+ ideology via HR training. These are the same giant corporations engaged in censoring and deplatforming anyone the leftists label “homophobic.”
Talk about ingratitude.
