Gay Pride takes a beating. Second blow for progressive coalition

It takes three to make a trend, but a breakup in the progressive coalition may be in progress.

From Global:

As thousands along the route wondered about the delay, members of Black Lives Matter issued demands to organizers. One of them was for the removal of all police floats in the future – a significant request considering the police’s popularity and presence in Canada’s largest pride parade.

Police and Black Lives Matter have been at constant odds over carding, which disproportionately targets black youth, and the shooting deaths of black men like Andrew Loku and Jermaine Carby.

Today’s action, “signifies a return to Pride’s political roots,” said co-founder Janaya Khan, who added one of the aims of the group is to draw attention to racism within the LGBTQ community.

List of demands follows.

Reality check: The progressive coalition is inherently unstable because it depends on a shared sense of grievance and entitlement rather than on shared interests.

First there was Orlando. Gays learned that they are not in a progressive coalition with Islamists. The gays’ grievance is that society doesn’t accept them; the Islamists’ grievance is that the gays are not dead, flogged, or in jail.

Now it turns out that the gays are not in a progressive coalition with the race grievance industry either. The industry wants the police called off, but it is the police who protect gays.

Generally, in these saw-offs, the group more inclined to violence will prevail. That spells no good for the gays.

If there is a third fracture, making a trend, any guesses as to what it will be?

I favour a fracture around crackdowns on evidence-based dissent from government claims about climate change. Price rises and diminishing quality of life may test the loyalty of the urban greenies to the climate a-crock-alypse.

    They deserve one another. You and I know when they’re done killing each other the survivors will band together with ISIS to blame it on the Jews.

      Perhaps someone should give the leader of BLM-Toronto some free methamphetamines before the march next year and maybe she will finally do what she tweeted she wanted to do to white people. Then people will have to accept what she and her group really are.

    Black Lives Matter is run by thugs
    1) You do NOT stage a protest in a parade that is honouring the dead!
    2) You FORCE people to sign a document=not LEGAL
    it has to be signed of FREE WILL
    3) You look thuggish and foolish saying
    “I want. I want”
    when you have not gone out there to do any of the heavy lifting
    4) THUGS WORKING FOR ORGANIZED CRIME ACTIVLEY TRY TO TEAR DOWN THE REPUTATION OF THE POLICE
    Carding : targets those who run around the streets shooting people with guns
    In Toronto it is young Black men overly represented so they get carded more
    ORGANIZD CRIME TARGETS YOUNG BLACK MEN TO USE…
    .
    YOUNG BLACK MEN AS CANNON FODDER
    .
    TO KEEP ORGANIZED CRIMES IMAGE OF BEING SOMETHING TO FEAR IN THE MEDIA AND THUS…
    ORGANIZED CRIME WINS THE FEAR GAME
    WHEN ORGANIZED CRIME NEEDS A POLITICIAN TO PUSH THROUGH A POLICY TO MAKE ORGANIZED CRIME BUSINESS MAKE MORE MONEY THE POLITICIAN WEILDS TO THE PROPAGANDA
    The gun talks better than to mouth
    The Left really needs to get some street smarts

    When I checked into the BLM thugs that met with Wynne I found that the Hijab wearing women were tied to the Muslim brotherhood in the USA .
    This has NOTHING to do with being Black , this has at its roots the islamic Supremacy pro-jihad islamists that hate being ruled under the filthy Kufirs by Man’s laws .
    Toronto’s insane ” Diversity ” quota has allowed the Muslim Brotherhood to get into the Police with muslims loyal to the Ummah while the Liberal progressives are so stupid they now will accept the pro-sharia jew-hating homophobic symbol of the Hijad as part of the Uniform , as will the RCMP now accepting the Hijab.
    The quran teaches muslims to think in centuries , so in their minds , time is on their side and they will have jihadists in every level for the Security Forces and Government.
    The hamas funding CAIR-canada had Sheema Khan crusade for the barbaric Sharia in Canada back in 2005 which failed but McGuinty came close to allowing it.

    When CAIR aided in Maher Arar’s $400,000,000.00 extortion lawsuit ( along with the NDP’s Jack Layton) which was used to get an Inquiry…. was a ruse so CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood could get inside the Security Machine , or expose those that were watching potential Terrorists in the Mosque or community .
    Today , we see how the pro-sharia Muslims have gotten into the Federal Government and have Justin as their useful-idiot to hold his Ramadan dinner video propaganda that all cultures and faiths are equal .
    But it was very telling that Justin didn’t have those same Muslim MP’s around him at the PRIDE parade that could have made a statement that islam condemns the Orlando mass slaughtering of Homosexuals which allah actually loves.

    btw
    I will say this about the Police .
    Since they haven’t enforced the Federal Laws or Provincial Laws that are meant to protect Children from perverts in public when the naked males in PRIDE expose them self around children……I think they should be kicked out from their charade to act as if they protect ALL the people in Toronto but will arrest a father for Child-abuse just because his daughter in Kindergarten drew a crude image of the gun daddy uses to kill monsters….while gay males on Yonge street during PRIDE commit REAL crimes against children in public .

    Liberals will excuse away the child-abuse by the gay community as it does for Muslims that break the same Laws when they abuse their child or drag them to a Pro-hamas rally as Shields that hold Poster with hate messages to wipe out israel .

    Why even has any Laws is Barbara Hall created a List of Protected Groups that get a special dispensation from some laws while the 95% must obey them.
    Justin could have marched with the TNT group while they smoke Pot and waved a hamas flag and the Police would have just stood their and smiled as they made $90,000.00 a year , which includes parade duty while the Homicide rate so far this years is up about 125% from 2015.

    Police Chief Blair is now a Liberal MP under Trudeau , so it all makes sense now for the pro-child abuse stance by the TPSB that had a Float in the parade because Ben Levin was a Liberal tied to Justin and Wynne .

  • Let these guys shred one another to pieces.

    I don’t see this incident as evidence of any breakup. Gay Pride simply bent over and took what BLM wanted to give ’em, then proclaimed how wonderful it was. I guess you could say they took one for the team.

    • Not evidence of a breakup but evidence of a fracture. Over time, enough fractures cause a system to start crumbling.

        I hope you’re right.
