I'm tired of people always interrupting our parades - we've got Christian hecklers every damn year, then there was BLM, now this.

Nevermind that Palestinians would jail us and beat us up if not worse if allowed.

All Hamas has to do is turn over the hostages - but no one fucking talks about that. It's all Israel and US's fault?

Queers for Palestine?!? The personification of useful idiots. And no, I’m no supporter of Netanyahu.

This is [italic]not[/italic] the way to make their point or get their message across.

As loathsome and as welcome as Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church used to be.

Finally an exciting Philly Pride Parade.

by Anonymousreply 8June 3, 2024 11:31 AM

I went fairly late yesterday. I DID notice that this pride was VERY active and tons of people were there. Some Prides have been very lackluster. This one felt very populated and festive. I chatted with friends around 12th and pine and watched the young kids dance. Then went to the bikestop. On the way there was a Christian “preacher” with a megaphone. About a half dozen cops surrounding him. Oddly, the preacher seemed to be preacher on behalf of queers, but in a rambling and nearly nonsensical way.

So many middle aged white women.

that I didn't notice, but I did see a LOT of young queers of the nonbinary sort tromping around

Go be queer for Palestine in Gaza. See how far that gets ya.

Be watchful during your PRIDE celebrations for both the far right and far left loons, my friends. They are equally disgusting and unhinged.

"The Student Intifada at UC Berkeley are torching the vehicles of the campus police now.

The Student Intifada at UC Berkeley released this statement

"Around 4am on June 1 2024, an incendiary device was placed below a UC Berkeley police vehicle parked in front of UCPD station. The device was lit underneath the back left wheel of a police SUV, placed between the tire and underside of fuel tank. There were too many people around at the time to see the final result. Unsure if it caught the tire and fuel tank. But the device has enough fuel in it  to torch the entire car if it was successfully placed.

This act was done in retaliation against UCPD, for their attack on students yesterday on a different campus and to retaliate against the University of California for its support for the zionist israel settler colony. More specifically – this attempt to torch a police car in front of the university was in solidarity with our Palestinian siblings assaulted by the zionist state in Rafah. It came from a place of love for Palestine, and love for revolution and liberation of all oppressed people.

This act was: In solidarity with the students attacked by the fascist police state at uc santa cruz. In solidarity with the students attacked by zionist street collaborators at uc los angeles. In solidarity with the uc berkeley students seizing the time and taking back Hines Hall.

In solidarity with the resistance axis for Palestinian life, liberation, and total decolonization of the zionist occupied lands. For an end to the genocide of our beloved Palestine, and an end to the anti-Black and colonial genocide destroying our loved ones here.

A life worth living is a life in solidarity with our Palestinian siblings, who face down the settler’s scope with every movement, or every day.  A life worth living is a life in solidarity with the Ohlone people. We continue to return the land with this offering. A life worth living is in solidarity with our Black and Brown siblings continuously surviving and thriving in the face of genocidal state violence here in the Bay Area.

Blessed is the flame that burns down the settler-plantation. Blessed are the rockets that will free thousands of prisoners held captive by the zionist settler entity and US colonizer police state. May the spirit of Revolutionary Anti-colonialism unearth the truth from beneath these occupied lands.

Our heart will forever be tied to the fate of Rafah

Knife to the throat of zionism

Death to amerikkka

Glory to the martyrs"

I wish the good people in the Pride parade could take out the terrorist-supporting Q for Palestine.

They sound like unhinged lunatics.

They are probably assuming since the FBI hasn't arrested the J6 bomber that they can do stuff like this at will and be free to live their lives, posting selfies for the "fam".

R16, they don’t even know about that. They’re in their own little narcissistic worlds.

R4 Their message is to genocide Jews and everyone else they don’t like as well as to implement sharia law.

idpol liberals believe nonwhites are too stupid to be responsible for anything they believe and therefore can't consider them to be homophobic or whatever else

They should all get a free ticket to Palestine once it is under Hamas management, or, preferably, one to Iran or Yemen now.

So queer people are beating on other queer people for… completely unrelated causes?

That makes sense.

by Anonymousreply 23June 4, 2024 1:14 AM

r23, Queers for Palestine are disowned. Don't lump them in with normal gay people who are against the Palestinians' call for the genocide of the Israeli Jews.

by Anonymousreply 24June 4, 2024 1:31 AM

R24 - not my point. They identify as queer. They’re protesting other queer people for celebrating Pride. Because why, exactly?

by Anonymousreply 25June 4, 2024 1:39 AM

I don't see anyone beating on anyone in that clip, R23.

by Anonymousreply 26June 4, 2024 1:52 AM

The other thread has clips of brawls

by Anonymousreply 27June 4, 2024 1:55 AM

There’s no evidence of the fighting posted on the other thread involving the queers for Palestine protestors. Not a single thing.

[quote] Queers for Palestine are disowned.

Just because you say something doesn’t mean it’s true R24.

by Anonymousreply 28June 4, 2024 2:39 AM

r25 Because "no pride while there's genocide" which is certainly a new rule since there's definitely been pride at times when actual genocides have taken place over the last 50 years or so.

by Anonymousreply 29June 4, 2024 3:07 AM

Yes, R28, there are clips posted somewhere on DL of fighting.

WTF do Pride parades in the US have to do with a conflict on the other side of the world?

by Anonymousreply 33June 4, 2024 3:33 AM

R30 there’s no evidence within those clips that the fighting involves protestors. It’s just videos (with the same 4 clips compiled in various order I might add) of people fighting. This is transparently disingenuous. But quelle surprise.

R34, it was on the news. You’re a dope. They were tearing rainbow flags off of each other.

by Anonymousreply 36June 4, 2024 5:51 AM

R36 that doesn’t mean it was the pro Palestinian protestors. Is there any direct evidence that it did involve them? A link maybe?

Thanks for the report r13. Using the word “blessed” calls to a divinity (unnamed here, but impliedly Allah) that is doing the blessing.

These protests are just military Islamism in light disguise. Nice work, student pawns.

All of these Queers For Palestine should be raped up the ass by a gang of sweaty, swarthy Arabs.

by Anonymousreply 39June 5, 2024 7:48 PM

The clips of fighting are involving solely Philly black folks, which is a regular thing. I highly doubt it was about Pride Inc vs Palestine Gay Inc.

by Anonymousreply 40June 8, 2024 1:50 AM

They tried — unsuccessfully — to stop the Parade in DC, but the cops were having none of it. They “escorted” them out of the street.

by Anonymousreply 41June 8, 2024 8:37 PM

Can we start having pride at the country club? Have a dress code? No protestors? Catered food?

After what happened at the Capitol, the DC cops aren't fucking around.
