Citizen Tory vs Mayor Tory: Why the shifting view on Pride Parade hijacking?

David MenziesMission Specialist

It’s time to call out Toronto Mayor John Tory on allowing the hijacking of the Gay Pride Parade by Black Lives Matter thugs. 

A few years ago, as a radio broadcaster and aspiring mayoral candidate, Tory was a straight-shooter who attacked the Pride Parade committee for allowing the anti-Semitic Queers Against Israeli Apartheid to march in the parade.

In 2014, Tory forcefully denounced the group saying if QAIA is allowed to participate in future Pride Parades, the city should cut off its taxpayer funding.

Tory’s principled stand was the correct one, but as the saying goes, that was then and this is now.

QAIA has since disbanded, but a new group of lunatics has hijacked the parade; Black Lives Matter. Last year they disrupted it with a sit-in but weren’t charged. Instead, they're calling the shots on the Pride Parade guest list.

BLM demanded police shouldn’t be part of the parade, and more or less got their way. Officers and other municipal law enforcement personnel can come, but not in uniform, i.e., they're allowed but have to stay in the closet.

So what happened to John Tory’s principled stand against odious groups that would hijack the Gay Pride Parade for their own agendas?

Was that just to make himself look good before he got the job of mayor?

It sure looks that way, given that once Citizen Tory became Mayor Tory he gulped down the politically-correct Kool-Aid and quickly went native.

After all, who wants to rock the boat when you’re comfortably ensconced in the captain’s seat?

Jimmy Reece speaking of not being able to comprehend , the story is about the parade being hijacked, why should BLM or any other group decide who gets in someone elses parade? Oh sorry you excuse certain people for telling gays what to do like a filthy hypocrite.

Jimmy Reece will be silent when sharia is enforced and gays are thrown off of rooftops.

Jimmy Reece that does not give them control over the city you halfwit. And sorry but disagreeing with and not wanting to worship gays as gods does not make one a homophobe. Now go be a good left wing bigot.

Canadian Mongrel,

I see you have reading comprehension problems. That seems to be a problem for a lot of Rebel fans.

Does The Rebel appeal to the ignorant and poorly educated? Seems so.

Gay pride brings in hundreds of millions of dollars to the city. Perhaps John Tory sees the value in that as Mayor of Toronto.

The Pride Parade has outlived it’s usefulness in North America… it raised awareness back in the day,and encouraged people to get out of the closet etc… we can shrug and say,“You’re gay, so what!”

Once you bend over then you’ll continually be shafted. Tory is left-wing lunatic. What a coward! Rob Ford was a real leader, and this is the trash that the elitists wanted in power. He’s a joke!

I couldn’t care less about a gay pride parade, so I don’t give a damn how fair or “inclusive” it’s rules are. I think the whole premise of “gay pride” is ludicrous. You couldn’t pay me enough money to attend that stupid parade. (Well, that’s probably not true. I could be bought if the price is right)

Black Lives matter, only if they are not Muslims.

You don’t understand David. BLM is the street violent gang of Soros to beat up people and divide Canada to ultimately destroy our country-state. But Soros is also a Jew, a Nazi Jew, but still a Jew. So he couldn’t support the queers against Israël openly. Everything ties up very nicely when you view them in the global financial elite point of view. Those mayors, provincial gov’t and the Libs all have to follow the orders of the ultimate evils who manage those puppets.

Riding the TTC is better now than it was when Rob Ford was Mayor, the media isn’t chasing after the Mayor daily now over some drug scandal, and thankfully we don’t have to listen to all the left-wing councilors being interviewed on the news complaining about the Mayor. Otherwise, I thought Tory was supposed to be Conservative and he seems an awful lot like a Liberal to me.

Gay Pride Parade has been hijacked by a dangerous ideology, the Mayor & council could have done something about it and didn’t. Pride organizers capitulated to BLM, the hate group has no place at this event; Pride organizers made the wrong decision.
I support cutting funding based on what has taken place.

What is hilarious is that Bacon Lettuce Mayo (BLM) has now decided to not participate in the parade according to Livy in yesterday’s Sun web-site.

I guess that since BLM had publicly demonstrated how they can make their trained seals bark and do tricks at their command, they saw no point in participating
