Pride vs. Caribana: BLM's selective parade crashing will show whether gay lives matter

David MenziesMission Specialist

After Toronto’s Black Lives Matter chapter got their way again in their Pride Parade demands, I got to thinking: If gay rights are so important to BLM, will they be crashing Toronto’s Caribbean Carnival Parade in August?

Many have noted Toronto’s Caribbean neighbourhood is one of the worst in the world when it comes to acceptance of gay rights.

Indeed, consider an opinion piece published in The Guardian from a few years ago entitled, “Why do so many Jamaicans hate gay people?” where columnist Keon West wrote:

“Jamaica has a bad reputation for anti-gay prejudice. This small island in the Caribbean has become notorious not only for its anti-gay laws, political rhetoric and murders, but also for its broad societal acceptance of severe sexual prejudice and openly hostile music.”

You’ll be deluged with content if you google, “Caribbean” and “homophobia.”

So, since BLM is seemingly all about championing gay rights these days, can we expect their members to stage a sit-in on Lakeshore Boulevard to disrupt Toronto’s Caribbean Carnival Parade?

Yeah, I won’t bet the ranch on that happening either.

Those BLM hooligans might be thugs, but they’re not stupid.

Like all bullies, they know which parade audiences will sheepishly tolerate their disruptive nonsense, and which ones will kick their collective asses to the curb.

BLM was declared a terrorist organization by the state of New Jersey. How long do you think it will take before Trudope cuts BLM in Canada a cheque?

BLM used Pride to push their agenda which is to create chaos and weaken the system, especially the police. They won’t take on Caribbean Carnival Parade since they won’t get anywhere. Check out Black activist, Larry Elder’s remarks about BLM, police brutality and racism which he says barely exists in the USA. He says it’s propaganda by the Left to make Black people regard themselves as victims (and vote Democrat).

How many shootings can we expect at these vibrant mosaic celebrations this year?

There was a murder in my neighborhood a couple of years ago. A gay man came home to find his partner having sex in their bed with a woman, so he stabbed him to death. It turns out that both of them had been admitted to Canada as refugees from St. Lucia on the grounds that they faced discrimination back home for being gay.
Round and round we go…
