3 ways “hysterical” protest over “Straight Pride” flag backfired

David MenziesMission Specialist

For a moment, a “straight pride flag” was raised in the New Brunswick village of Chipman, and from the reaction in some quarters, it seems the symbol ranks right up there with the swastika.

Chipman resident Glenn Bishop and 11 others were behind the idea of raising the flag to show support for straight people, and whether one agrees or not, it’s a free country and we have freedom of speech and expression, right?

Well, maybe not. In little Chipman, population 1,100, some members of the LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP community went bonkers, so it was promptly taken down.

A report from the CBC noted that – shockingly – the straight pride flag flapped in the wind for “almost a full day.” Can you imagine?

But don’t think that the flag coming down was the end of the story because now, those of an alternate lifestyle are demanding the village issue a grovelling apology.

Even so, it turns out this hysterical protest over a silly flag was a major fail for three reasons — not the least of which is the backlash that may now come due to the Streisand effect.

If nobody raised a fuss about this flag, it would have briefly flapped unnoticed in the wind but thanks to the temper tantrum that ensued, the straight pride flag story went viral.

Andrew……..I am not a priviledged white and I am not a white supremecist….I am WHITE TRASH….and damned proud of it…..and I will not let any pedantic liberal define who and what I am.

…and a lot of Muslims are genetically white!

Glad to see this bit of information found a landing spot. We have been saying that here at The Rebel for many years in response to lefties telling us that we are racists for being opposed to islam. Since islam is not a race, being opposed to islam cannot make a person a racist. Glad to see you have finally come around.

Andrew, this is the core of what Dan said:

I’m sick and tired of being attacked …
I’m sick and tired of having my community and my country forced …

So this has nothing to do with not liking gays. You are still doing that selective reading thing.

The straights need to take back our lives and existence.

If that was my flag it would have never come down. In fact I’d push for a month of “Straight Pride” celebrations.

Bowing to minorities is not healthy.

For every Gay person in this world you can say goodbye to one normal family. Muslims hang Gay people………..Think about it.

Andrew, if “White Pride” is just a way to mask being a white supremacist, then it follows that “Black Pride” is just a a way to mask being a black supremacist (or any other color you choose) … or does being proud of being white (and the obvious white supremacy that follows) only apply to white people?

“James Hall commented 1 hour ago
Good points Stephen.
The UN wants the white race of people engineered off the planet and it couldn’t be more obvious …”

I think people confuse being removed from a pedestal with being marginalized. No, nobody wants the “white race” engineered off the planet. As I recall, the recent bogeyman is about Muslims taking over, and a lot of Muslims are genetically white!

Being straight doesn’t have the same stigma and the comparisons are always going to be something of a false dichotomy.

That being said, is it actually just being proud of being straight (while supporting your gay brethren) or is it merely a misleadingly named attempt to show that you don’t like the gays, as “white pride” has become a misleadingly labeled way to be racist? Read Dan Mancuso’s comment below, and the reason why people think it’s the latter becomes apparent.

Good points Stephen.
The UN wants the white race of people engineered off the planet and it couldn’t be more obvious …they have many many enablers in the West such as Trudeau , Soros, Merkel etc etc and our “educational” system or I guess re-educational system.
If this was being attempted on any other race or group of people there would be outrage and it would be considered unacceptable but the majority of “our” politicians in the West have sold their souls to the devil of the UN and are completely onside with the program

When I was a teen I read a sci-fi story about a future where straights were the minority and had to hide from the majority. Hunted down by the police.

Non-straight make up a very small segment of society right now – and how many are simply confused because they have been told to embrace their male or female “half”. It is this minority that are now running the game.

Literally, every new TV show, film, advertisement, and book have a gay couple or couples. If you came from another planet to a Western society you would believe that half, if not a majority, are an alphabet soup of non-straight people.

And along with this, every TV show, film, advertisement, and book now have mixed race couples far, far greater than exist in our society. (Full disclosure, I have a black sister-in-law. She has no whites on her extended family side – her husband is the only white.).

Its social engineering being pushed down our throat.

An American Secret Service agent that I know…………
Henry, I was unaware of the regulations re the Union Jack but I do know that the flag of England, the Cross of St George, can only be flown on on Ceremonial Occasions.
It upsets the Muslims, reminding them of previous battles in history, where their enemy flew the same flag.

If a politician can find a way to extract us from the grip of the UN, and break up the toxic alliances of the education system and unions, there might be a chance of having this nonsense shrink back into its normal significance in nature, which as pointed out is quite small.

This ‘straight’ flag is just one of the many signs that people are tiring and losing their patience. Not only with this unseating of objective truth, but with having it jammed down our throats as well as messing with our children. That’s enough now.
commented 2018-10-28 10:04:04 -0400
Why are they so militant, so entitled and so triggered? The educators/union/gov/UN alliance have trained them to be. We gave our children over to these social engineering disrupters of the west. I don’t want to have to care about my neighbours sexuality, I’d rather not know or have to think about it. I want the children left alone without this sexualization, and I want the laws I thought existed against sexualizating children to be upheld.

Its child abuse. In the delusional post truth world these official enablers are trying to insert, they are slowly changing what things mean, changing laws through cultural manipulation, which is forced on the youngest and most helpless in society through our schools, and even libraries. Media and advertising has been only too glad to oblige in the poisoning. It didn’t happen over night.

So Xe can celebrate something that we’re not, but we must not celebrate something which Xir not. Is that we are being told?

I’ve just about come to the end of any tolerance for the LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP community and their enablers!
I’m sick and tired of being attacked by a tiny minority (1 to 3 %) of the mentally disordered – the homosexual mafia!
I’m sick and tired of having my community and my country forced down that road to the ‘modern age’ of self destruction.
It is well past time to take back what’s ours from the degenerates, criminals and enemies of our way of life and reestablish right and wrong, good and bad, black and white – we need to chase the filthy swine back under their rocks and return to some kind of normal…or there won’t be a Canada!
This is my country and I want it back!

When is POS Prince Mohammad “rainbow socks” bin Trudeau going to bring a rainbow flag into one of the Islamic mosques he is so fond of grovelling for votes in ?? We are waiting Mohammad , we know how “inclusive” Islam is towards LGBTQ right ??
Can the stupid wilfully blind leftists and the moronic idiot Trudeau even spell the word “hypocrisy”
commented 2018-10-27 23:33:45 -0400
The gay movement took ownership of the Christian symbol of the rainbow. The gay movement is trying to take ownership of the Catholic Church, only just now to have been put in their place.
In addition to what Liza Rosie said, many women and men were abused sexually during childhood. There are simply too many cases being brought forward confirming this.
commented 2018-10-27 23:00:46 -0400
An American Secret Service agent that I know online was telling me that the last time he was in Britain, a local police officer that he was working with confided to him that he could no longer fly a Union Jack from his own flagpole in his own yard; apparently, it offended the local Muslims to see that. (He was allowed to fly the flag of England but not the Union Jack, although I suppose the Muslims will soon find the English flag offensive too.) How long will it be before our Prime Minister and his party decree that we can’t fly the Canadian flag in our country because Muslims find it offensive?

“A child who is the victim of prolonged sexual abuse usually develops low self-esteem, a feeling of worthlessness and an abnormal or distorted view of sex. "
….and wouldn’t the same thing apply for the developmental interference by ‘educators’ of confusing young children about their gender? I think that would give any kid a distorted view of sex at the very least.
commented 2018-10-27 21:51:27 -0400
Keith and Ron, I think many people know of a kid, friend relative who was sexually abused or raped as a child or young adult, of course they don’t all become gay, however this paragraph from https://victimsofcrime.org/media/reporting-on-child-sexual-abuse/child-sexual-abuse-statistics makes sense to me.
“A child who is the victim of prolonged sexual abuse usually develops low self-esteem, a feeling of worthlessness and an abnormal or distorted view of sex. "
I think a lot of people know of someone who is gay who was abused.

Its time for this militant BLT crowd to go get toasted, nobody cares about your sex life. Of course someone was going to come up with a straight flag. What do these sjw’s expect?

What a strange thing for LGBTQ whatever, to protest.

Another laff riot from the CBC Journalistic Standards. These guys slay me:

When appropriate, news and current affairs staff offer reports we refer to as “analysis”. Here, reporters may make observations and draw conclusions based on facts as well as their own experience and expertise.

Ron, I was not offended by your comment but after reading it I went back and re read my own comment and found I had a bit of a guilt trip. I was a bit harsh with my words.
