“Rainbow fascists” ban Calgary Police from Pride Parade

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

I don't care about Pride Parades. I’m not for them. I’m not against them. I just don't care. 

But then the Pride parade organizers in Calgary swooped in to make me give a damn because, while I'm indifferent to Pride, I'm pretty pro-police.

Calgary Pride is not allowing uniformed police in their parade in September.

The parade organizers are not allowing what they call “institutionalized racism” and the “potentially negative association with weapons, uniforms, and other symbols of law enforcement” which means RCMP, city police, and corrections officers have to be out of uniform to be in the parade.

Pride organizers are getting city funding to hold a parade that celebrates how people don't have to hide their identities anymore but they want the police to hide their identities if they want to participate in their parade of identities.

After decades of being told that gay people are just like us, that they are cops and teachers and doctors and lawyers — basically normal people in our communities — now it’s the gay community forcing gay cops back into the closet. Talk about “inclusive.”

Shame on any politician that participates in a pride parade if the police cannot be there and be represented as police officers. 

Someone should tell these rainbow fascists that there is a thin blue line in that inclusive rainbow of theirs.

David Heinze, I love your idea. People who work in uniforms should throw an annual parade. The sight of all those groups in matching uniforms is something our children would do well to take in. In the military, we saw parading of the troops many times, it never gets old. They could have donation box carriers to prove their popularity. Great idea David.

Good comments, Maurice. You analyzed it correctly.

I haven’t trusted the cops since the High River Gun Grab. And I don’t trust the politicos who won’t make heads roll.

The cops are so PC but now they are on the outs with the perversion of the week club. You gotta be fast to keep up with the daily swings of SJW acceptability. ‘Twill be interesting to see what happens when some deranged loonies take advantage of their absence. "Why weren’t the cops prepared for something like this".

It is interesting how the SJW’s like to lump all their causes together. The weight of them all at once grinds everything to a halt. Remember “Occupy”? Was there ever so many lefty causes lumped into one mountain at one time? It got so cumbersome that it imploded. Same with Idle No More.The lefties co-opted it from the native women who started it and ran amok with every imaginable cause and some that were not imaginable. It too died. I hope the same will happen with pride parades.

HUH? For some reason Andrew is not here preaching about diversity??

Nenshi says he’s disappointed but he will still be marching in the parade. Yeah, you’re not the only one who’s disappointed, Barney. See you on October 16, buh-bye.

I remember one of Kevin Johnston’s videos in Mississauga, where he tried to talk to the brother of one of the women heading up Toronto Black Lives Matter. Because he was too chicken to talk to Kevin, her brother ran over and asked a policeman for help.

Maurice Potvin, thanks for your perspective, I also think financing the parade should be crowdfunded.

Fine, get all regressive and succumb to the final chapter of their insanity (no survival instinct) clear the way for the homo-hating jihadis to roam at will smart move – some people are just too stupid to deserve police protection.

That’s because the LGBT agenda is not about equality, it’s about power.
Do all parades gets municipal funding (usually as a grant)?

Maybe it is time for Police or men and women in uniform pride events. Where we can all stand with those who serve and protect us. The vast majority of whom are dedicated to serving us all.

Maybe the police, after their being banned by homosexuals, will have learned there is no value in appeasing degenerates.

I couldn’t care less…. and I think it’s sad that the cops care. The very concept of a pride parade seems absolutely ridiculous to me! If, as they insist, they’re born that way, what’s to be proud of? That would be like me being proud of being born with 8 fingers, 2 thumbs and 10 toes…. I didn’t have a damned thing to do with it. On the other hand, if it’s a lifestyle choice that springs from how one was parented, again what’s to be proud of. The fact that someone is a product of how they were raised is nothing to be either proud or ashamed of. Now, if one were to rise up above their raising, that might be something to be proud of. But the truth is, the whole concept of a pride parade turns me off. Of course that’s my problem, but if a pride parade were to happen in my town, I’d leave town until it was all over. And as for the police, I don’t trust them like I used to anyway…. not since the murder and attempted cover-up of Robert Dziekanski. But if they were proudly marching the pride parade, in or out of uniform, I think I’d have even less confidence in them. However, I don’t believe the tax payer should be footing the bill for any of it. They want a parade, let them crowd fund.

Any cop that participates is an enemy of the people.

Stay in the office and if called, take your time getting there.

When is the heterosexual parade days going to be?

…and Carole I like your idea. Who wants to fund these post modernist aberrant charades anyway. I am sure there are even some gays, lesbians and the minuscule tranny population who are embarrassed by this ridiculous display.

Remember when the Gays said if Gay Marriage is made legal they wouldn’t force people to participate in a Gay wedding, how long did that last?????????????

“I don’t know what is sillier – these stupid parades, or fifi cops thinking it’s an honour to take part.” Jamie Macmaster, too funny.
What else can we expect from the nancy boy mayor of Calgary.

Gay pride parades are just so gay.

Anonymous, I agree.

Ok when are those in charge going to grow some nads and say if you get the taxpayers money these are the rules. If you don’t like it, no parade and fuck off. How hard is that. Not racist or biased. This applies to everyone.

who cares, when something goes wrong and theres no cop , then they will change their minds
commented 2017-07-31 14:14:33 -0400
They should hold their parade in a muslim country then they could find out how “inclusive” and " tolerant" the Islamic police are
commented 2017-07-31 14:04:39 -0400
We should start a petition for cutting public funding to those bigoted people. Why should I pay for degenerates parading their sexual organs who are against the Conservatives. I want nothing to do with them.
