BLM anti-police bigotry spreads across Canada: Ottawa Pride told to “remove triggering symbolism”

Brian LilleyArchive

We first saw the bigotry of Black Lives Matter in Toronto where activists demanded that the police float be removed from the the Pride parade.

The same demand has been made in St. John’s Newfoundland where police have been told they can be part of Pride but not in uniform and now the demand has come to Ottawa.

While Capital Pride have not said whether they’ll give in yet, more and more are pushing back against BLM activists since the whole idea of pride is to be inclusive and allow people to be themselves.

I’ve never been to Pride but I can see the inconsistency here. There used to be an acrimonious relationship between law enforcement and the LGBT community which has since been repaired so this seems counterproductive.

If you claim to be against bigotry, why is it okay to display bigotry towards police?

It’s only radical activists like those in Black Lives Matter who see the police as an “oppressive institution”

Those in “marginalized” communities who understand that alienating the police will only undermine their own safety, should push back against this nonsense.

Eileen Mcrae, you are right and this BLM nonsense is just another aspect of the attack to destroy our country and western civilization as a whole.

BLM has no relevance in our nation or culture – there is no black race problem here and never has been and most people don’t care about their commie tantrum taking – the only people who obsess over this irrelevant diaper wetting are the social engineering media – and they are beginning to share the same level of public disrepute as the SJW causes they pander to.

JJ……If we’re such racists & bigots why are you on this site, you should be at CBC instead, cause we all know they’re not bigots or racists!!!!!!!!!
The left wing answer to us is always the same, if we dare criticize, well it’s obvious that we’re racists & bigots, cause JJ said so & JJ knows everything…..right!!!!!!!

That black woman activist is clueless & does not know the facts. Why doesn’t she just shut up already. So fed up with these black movements who create nothing but racism & bigotry, what they insist they are fighting against, bunch of hypocrites.
The police should get a backbone & take them at their word, BLM does not want them there than stay away & refuse to offer security to those ingrates.
RIP Dallas & Baton Rouge police.

Some of us are just sick of the left wing activists taking things too far. That does not make us bigots.

Brian Lilley and TheRebel.com Congratulations on your ongoing ability to safely cater to the racist and homophobic audience that you represent. This article ignores facts and also invites your readers to espouse anti gay opinions as well. You do well for the type of readers your site invites.

Maybe the black people should show up white faced?
commented 2016-07-16 19:43:25 -0400
Part of the problem might be that some of those black protesters come from countries where the black police are corrupted and dangerous and through their ignorance assume the police here in North America are the same way. I know a few Jamaican men who wanted to apply to be officers, but would not because their community would shun them. From some of the accents I hear from BLM spokes people, that certainly supports my idea.
commented 2016-07-16 16:31:26 -0400
Bwahahahahaha! They are all such losers, I don’t care about black lives or pride. Lmao I hope they behave as badly in canada as they do in the states. It will serve the government right to have to clean up a giant mess.

There is a movement afoot, fellow Canadians, to incite and provoke anarchy inside our country. It is a slow and insidious movement that is suppressing freedom of speech, that is depriving many of us of our rights under the Canadian Charter, that is labelling many of us as racists and bigots, etc. It is destroying our “Canadian” heritage. It is placing the rights of minorities ahead of the rights of the majority; it is creating a class in society that is “more equal” than others. It is a movement that is aided and abetted by some of our politicians, by our justice system, and by our media.
Our civilization is succumbing to terrorism and barbarism. A “script” is being perfectly played out as if it has been orchestrated. To whom belong the hands of the puppeteer?

If the constant arguing about who should and shouldn’t be allowed to attend a parade, or public event for that matter, doesn’t end, then the whole thing should be cancelled.
Fuck ’em all!
Enough of this PC driven bullshit.

One good thing, is that it looks like the professional victim groups are starting to turn on each other. Get out the popcorn folks, and enjoy watching the fall of the depraved.
commented 2016-07-16 02:20:37 -0400
With luck, maybe the natives and black lives matter can go and protest each other.
commented 2016-07-16 02:11:13 -0400
I would not even provide security to them if I were the police.

I would be sick that day
commented 2016-07-15 23:39:15 -0400
A preacher on the streets of Toronto can’t even turn up the volume on his preaching because he’s a Christian, and these loud mouths can do whatever they want to spew their lies and to incite the crowds with megaphones.
commented 2016-07-15 21:12:22 -0400
Has any one else noticed that the spokesmen for these groups are women with muslim names? More intriguing is that their dress clearly shows that they Ho’s advertising for business. The main function of Bacon Lettuce Mayo (BLM) in Canada. I wonder what their imams think of this?

I couldn’t care less. If there was a “pride” parade in my area, I certainly wouldn’t attend. In fact, if the local area became too hectic with hosting of the event, I might even leave town till things calmed down. I believe the whole concept of a “gay pride” day and a pride parade is ludicrous. If they’re born that way, what’s to be proud of? It’s not as if it’s some great accomplishment on their part. Why don’t we have a heterosexual pride parade? The answer’s simple; because it would be just plain stupid. As far as the “black lives matter” idiots, and their demand that police be excluded from the parade, it’s a case of competing idiotic ideologies, as well as political cowardice in the face of MSM and public scrutiny. Let them fight it out among themselves. I could care less who wins, they’re all idiots. But such is the world we live in.

Rebelation Rebelation commented – “The real lesson to learn here however, is that the wheel that squeaks the loudest – wins!! BLM, like it or not, are now in charge”

I tend to disagree – sometimes the louder the squeeky wheel, the more annoying it is and the more the impetus to get rid of it and replace iT.

I predict this movement will be a flash in the pan. Hence the word movement, it goes a certain distance then it stops. I tend to ignore them. My sons Kenyan friend (who I happen to appreciate) says all lives matter, and no one gets offended. Eventually everyone will realize who’s your friend and who’s your enemy

Dr. Genius – that’s just down right, well, genius!!

Bill, great comments as always.

The real lesson to learn here however, is that the wheel that squeaks the loudest – wins!! BLM, like it or not, are now in charge, with the media jumping at their every whim, and the Gov jumping at the whim of the media. So if conservatives want to take back the country, well, you know what we need to do . . . .

I’m loving this tyranny and intimidation between marxist street pounders.

They seek power through guilt for injustices which have never occurred in Canada and do not exist now – This is US race-baiting marxist subterfuge now beginning to litter our public streets.

Black race relations is a uniquely US issue premised upon slavery origins. The emancipation of African slaves has been an American social experiment in determining the extent to which primitive heredity can be curbed by assimilation into a civilized society (Lincoln and Dixie-crats wanted to deport freed Blacks to Africa or South America but Republicans favored the “melting pot” solution) – obviously it has had mixed results in that nation if its current social malaise is any indication.

I wonder when the Muslims will recognize that they are at the top of the of the political-correctness hierarchy of “more equal” minority groups and demand that Gays not show up at Pride events.

BLM protesters ARE primitive savages.
commented 2016-07-15 18:56:01 -0400
At first I wondered why BLM (and many of SJW movements) employ such primitive and savage manners in their hateful protests (drums, chanting, yelling and screaming, barbaric gestures, obscenity, etc.).
But I soon understood the obvious.
The ARE primitive savages.

They are the most racist bunch of people I have ever seen in Canada…angry, arrogant people obviously very, very unhappy with the colour of their own skin. Sad.
