A gay man will be leading Boston’s “straight pride” parade. Super Happy Fun America, which is organizing the parade to “advocate on behalf of the straight community,” announced that Milo Yiannopoulos would be the grand marshal after Brad Pitt made it known he was none too pleased they were using his image to advertise the event. Pitt “made it clear” to the organizers that they had to stop using his name and likeness, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Lololololol this is great. Only straight people like him so at least he's hanging out with his crowd?

Yeah there was really never much question that this was a very thinly-veiled white supremacist event. The organizers had ties to Proud Boys and a couple of racist pseudo-militia type groups.

(Also, this guy is broke as a joke, and deplatformed from every reasonable social media platform so I imagine he'll take almost any gig in a desperate attempt to up his profile at this point.)

This parade is just plain dumb

my brain omitted the straight part out of the title and I was supremely confused for a second

it’s like the idea of a straight pride parade is so dumb that my brain is actively trying to protect me from the very concept

A dozen or armed neo nazis crashed the Detroit pride parade. So far no one was hurt.

Washington: stampede panic after peope thought they heard gunshots. 7 people hospitalized.

Oh, I should add that there were no gunshots, but one man was arrested.

I’ve been to new orleans pride in the past

my dad's take on this is actually pretty funny.

"maybe he is there for the design."

Straight pride parade drinking games that will kill you:

Take a shot every time you see someone with wraparound sunglasses.

Take a shot every time you see someone with a cellphone holster.

Take a shot every time you see someone with an Affliction or MMA related T-shirt.

they probably wouldn't go unless there was a drywall float. then i'd probably be dead of alcohol poisoning.

The organizers reported "suspicious envelopes" delivered to them. Called police, HAZMAT shut down parts of their streets, FBI looking into it, a big deal.

Surely, that’s an act of terrorism

yeah, even if it’s just a prank, you shouldn’t be sending suspicious envelopes to anyone
2 months ago - Tuesday 7/2/19 - 4:38:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
Honestly, while I can't fault them for using caution based on the description of the envelopes...I also seriously doubt the people who sent them expected this to be the outcome. They probably just didn't put a return address on there because...I mean who wants a bunch of white supremacist homophobes to have your address?

Honestly, I don't find that funny given past events.

So this was today. In case anyone was still doubtful that this was a not-even-thinly-veiled white nationalist event, the whole thing was full of
Proud Boys and Trump 2020 floats/signs.
