Black Lives Matter Won’t March At the Gay Pride Parade

Was it something Big Gay said?

Pride Toronto bent over backwards for Black Lives Matter-Toronto (BLM) and instigated a highly-controversial ban on police involvement in the June 25 parade, because apparently, some members of the LGBTQ community find the police presence in the parade “threatening” and “intimidating.”

So said Pride executive director, Olivia Nuamah at City Hall on May 7.

We all knew that the so-called “intimidated” were the same BLM bullies who hijacked last year’s parade and their ragtag group of fringe leftist supporters who have swallowed the “intersectionality…I’m more oppressed than you” Kool-Aid.

However, Nuamah also made it clear that the sight of Toronto police in uniform protecting BLMers and other marchers was not the least bit intimidating and least of all, the idea of having that $500,000-plus protection being provided free of charge to Pride.

The decision, naturally, has divided Toronto’s LGBTQ community and that — coupled with the lack of public support of the police by Mayor John Tory — many councillors and absolute silence by our lesbian Premier has led many to opt to boycott this year’s parade.

Instead, several Toronto police officers have opted to take up New York City up on their offer to march in their parade on June 25.

After a day-long debate at council a week ago, 27 councillors and Mayor John Tory caved completely and rejected the notion of withholding this year’s $260,000 grant to Pride until officials agreed to allow at least a few police march in uniform.

And what has BLM done? Slapping everyone who kowtowed to them in the face — they’ve opted not to march this year.

I repeat, the group at the centre of this inane maelstrom, will not be marching in the parade on June 25.

      Makes the heart race a bit, doesn’t it?

      What no feces flinging Rhesus in the parade……. not worth my time then ..

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    Criminals are intimidated and threatened by police.

  • Justin St.Denis

    Sounds like there’s been a mishap at the corner of Intersectionality Road and Bigotry Boulevard. Somehow, it makes me feel like I’m winning…..

    Neither will the new Conservative leader Andrew Scheer which takes a lot of courage for a politician to not do these days!

    BLM is linked to the nation of islam. The only purpose of what the did was to ensure no police protect the pride parrade.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Are you suggesting maybe there is a bomb-a-thon plan afoot?

  • JohnfromToronto

    I can just about guarantee that they will be there again to hijack the parade.
