Alberta’s United Conservative Party has been blocked from participating in Edmonton’s pride parade.
According to a Pride Festival press release, the UCP’s “request for participation did not speak to any direct action they’ve taken or will take to support the inclusion of all segments of the lgbtq2s+ community”.
Translation? Pride banned conservatives, including gay ones, because conservatives aren’t inclusive.
Last year citing the same hypocritical excuse as Edmonton’s organizers, Calgary Pride banned the UCP from participating but said they were welcome to watch from the sidelines.
And just like last year, the NDP are making political hay out of the ban.
The party of inclusion and diversity and their leader, couldn't be more pleased to see conservatives being discriminated against by the official gay community.
There’s something about UCP leader, Jason Kenney, Notley doesn’t want you to know though, and if he were on the Left, he’d be parade marshal for all that he’s done to protect the lives of those in the LGBT community abroad from prosecution, persecution and death.
But he's a conservative, so none of the LGBTQ lives that he helped save matter in the grand tally for the activists.
The bullied have become the bullies and the more Pride acts as political enforcers, the more people see it for what it really is; an NDP march with rainbows.
