BC Pride bans LIBRARY from parade — and Justin Trudeau applauds

David MenziesMission Specialist

There wasn't a whole lot of love at the Vancouver Gay Pride Parade the other day, as the local Pride Society banned both the University of British Columbia and the Vancouver Public Library from participating.

It turns out that both of these institutions had previously hosted speakers who have concerns over transgender rights. 

Jenn Smith spoke at UBC last month and is known to refer to transgender women as men. In January, feminist blogger Meghan Murphy presented at the library. Her major crime is that she does not think that transgender women are real women. 

Of course, the Pride Society said both UBC and the Vancouver Public Library would be allowed to march again in the future… as long as they change their room-booking policies.

The Parade did go on, attracting Prime Minister Justin Trudeau along with Elizabeth May and Jagmeet Singh. Trudeau used the opportunity to blast Conservative leader Andrew Scheer as “intolerant” for not joining them, and praised the Parade for taking a “strong stance against intolerance” with the removal of UBC and the Public Library.

The idea that the Vancouver Public Library and its staff is somehow homophobic or something of that ilk because it allows for the free exchange of ideas within its walls is absurd and an insult to its staff.

This is called second order separation.
First Order:
We won’t have anything to do with those who disagree with us.

Second Order:
We won’t have anything to do with those who have anything to do with those with those who disagree with us.

Watching Trudeua, May, and Singh all marching together, and all clearly having a great time, makes me optimistic for Canada.

Ah, more logical fallacies by the master of sophistry.. In this case the fallacy of chronological snobbery.

Christianity sets very high moral standards but offers absolute forgiveness

Secularist society has no moral standards and says do what you like, But offers no forgiveness to anybody who transgresses the unwritten code.

Max has marched in pride parades in the past, and until starting the PPC was among the more socially liberal (libertarian?) individuals in the CPC caucus. His current absence is purely virtue-signaling.

Andrew….It is Max’s gay right to be straight.

The Library and the University now have every right to ban Pride. This pride parade is all about sex. That seems to be a preoccupation. What everyday person thinks of sex ALL the time?

Last count seems that Trudeau’s cross Canada trip just to walk in yet another gay stroll is his 5th this week. So much for his and Bab’s fake carbon crap.

I’ve always held a sneaking suspicion that the lesbian community would not allow trans-women like Rudolph to join in their reindeer games.

During the 1930’s, Hitler called the Jews “intolerant” as well. He pushed his agenda to the point where it became common place to attack Jewish businesses and eventually killing innocent Jews just for being, well, Jews. Today Herr Trudeau is calling people who do not support transgenders as being “intolerant”. If history shows us anything, we can expect those who scream “intolerance” at others to escalate their acts to violence and eventually killing those who do not support this lifestyle that is being forced upon us by this degenerate minority. If there is one group who epitomizes intolerance it’s the LGTB community. How long before they just start wearing brown shirts with rainbow armbands? You really don’t think that will happen? The groundwork has already been laid.

I say that we need to ban the homosexual mafia (homosexuals and their enablers) and all their bigotry, intolerance, hypocrisy, lack of inclusion, violence, depravity, sicko-weirdness, offensiveness, criminality and the fact that they ‘recruit’ homosexuals through child sexual abuse!
You can deny and or rationalize the facts I’ve stated…because your feelings may be hurt…but it doesn’t change the facts!

In the category of ‘what goes around comes around’: How does the library feel about being banned from the homosexual shame parade…after they put content filters on the computers in the library – in direct contravention of the Canadian Library Association’s Statement on Intellectual Freedom and Libraries!

The Vancouver Public Library was one of my favourite places in Vancouver. It’s a spectacular building and the staff there is top-notch, welcoming, intelligent, and as far as I could tell singularly free of any bias or prejudice.

The idea that the Vancouver Public Library and its staff is somehow homophobic or something of that ilk because it allows for the free exchange of ideas within its walls is absurd and an insult to its staff.

I hope the LGBTQ community and Pride organizers will seriously reconsider this attitude of exclusion and respect the freedom of libraries to present ideas to their patrons without fear of reprisals or censorship. The LGBTQ community is not doing itself any favours by trying to shame the Vancouver Public Library and its staff.

The Greyhound Bus company misgendered me in 1993 by calling me Mrs. I wouldn’t do it of course but I wonder how much I could get in compensations for emotional distress. I think I still have that letter somewhere.

STEPHEN E…Judge Judy said that there is no straight pride parade because there are no soup kitchen lines for the rich…but I will have her know that I have stood in a Vichyssoise/ glace de boeuf line when my Guccis were worn so thin that I could step on a Kruger rand and tell you the price of gold that day.

Trudeau’s wife suggested he kiss Gomeshi; maybe he swings both ways?
That’s why he flew out to Vancouver; to attend the parade.

I used to work with many men and some women who were gay. I could never have tolerated these transmen or women or whatever the hell they are today.

My Opinion: (Stolen from a European site)
“Growing less tolerant to lgbt’s” Too much noise from a sliver 3% of the population. Stop forcing YOUR way amongst us, sexualizing everything & infusing gayism into everything.

Life was a lot simpler back in the old days when there were just Queers and Butches to worry about and they had ‘Ding a lings’ and ‘Boxes’.
Anyone remember ‘Long Dong Silver’.

Who the hell cares? Why the hell would anyone with half a brain in their head want to have anything to do with that ridiculous parade? Which explains why Justin Trudeau is all Gung Ho about it…. he has less than half a brain. It’s not being banned from participating perverse gong show that’s the anomaly, It’s taking notice, and caring, that you’ve been banned from participating in the exercise of that public display of sexual perversion that’s the anomaly. If I was banned, the only way I’d know about it is if I accidentally came across a news story stating as much. And for me, that would strike me as amusing more that anything else. Like, as if I was planning to attend in the first place. Mind you, it might present a perfect opportunity to throw rotten tomatoes at Justin Trudeau.

Imagine Trudesu’s outrage if there would be a “straight” parade!

Since the alphabet sexuality community has broken the bonds of discrimination and, well, sort of the stigmatization of being very, very different, isn’t it time for them to call it a victory and understand that people can have opinions about their choices as much as they do others?

Do we really need another gay pride parade? Soon will there be a prostitute’s parade? An all black parade (oops, we do), an all white parade (then its call racist), a skin head parade (aka KKK) and no one should say boo if they exclude anyone unlike themselves,

I guess privilege has its benefits.

i would consider it a badge of honor to be banned from any of their freak shows

Will Yaniv get charged and go to jail because the Liberals he votes for do not like people to have means of self defense?
Will the RCMP be brought before an HRC tribunal for daring to raid the home of a SPECIAL PERSON?
Which prison will Yaniv go to if charged-Mens or Womens??

This and more on the next insane episode of Justin’s Canada.

Why would ANY ‘august institution’ WANT to participate in a Pride Parade?? Its for flaming queens, butch babes and….. Canadian Prime Ministers apparently.
Its a comedy. A circus. Why would anyone, institution, politician or leader of the country think its a good idea to lead with their sexuality…? Oh yeah, another underclass to control with free stuff and privilege and use against the ‘non-special’ people. If you don’t fit into one of the preferred and protected special interest groups you are dead weight to Justin Trudeau. There is no one in Canada more intolerant than Trudeau and his special friends.

How many more rights do these people want? They aren’t doing themselves any favours or helping their reputation by acting like spoiled children. Fit in, shut up, stop expecting special rights and stop shoving your sexuality in our faces. Too much to ask?

Did the old wrinkled pedo’s at least keep their dongs covered like they didn’t do in Toronto? YUCK!
