AOC Calls Straight Pride Parade ‘White Supremacist Parade’…But Pictures Don’t Lie


URL of the original posting site: https://steadfastandloyal.com/politics/aoc-calls-straight-pride-parade-white-supremacist-parade-but-pictures-dont-lie/

Pictures don’t lie but AOC does. She tried to portray the Straight Pride Parade as a bunch of white supremacists. But, if you look at the pictures of the march, you will see a lot of Black white supremacists. Either that or AOC just hates Blacks. Also, there were 12 speakers and five of them were black. Three of them Black women. So I guess AOC can’t stand strong women of color.

If gays can be proud to be gay, why can’t straight people be proud of being straight?

From The Blaze

Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet piggybacked on a post from fellow Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley, who also asked her followers to contribute to the bail fund and called the Straight Pride Parade an “LGBT hate march.”
In response, Michael Leary — president of the Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association — rebuked Pressley: “Your actions in support of these individuals serves only to encourage criminal and disruptive behaviors such as those suffered by my members this weekend.” He added that his officers “were screamed at, abused and fought by these so-called peaceful protesters.”
The Washington Examiner reported that 36 activists were arrested at the Boston parade, and nine of them were charged “with assault and battery on a police officer. Other charges included resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and assault by means of a dangerous weapon.”
“Four officers sustained non-life-threatening injuries as they attempted to prevent the antifa-fueled crowd of about 1,000 counter-protesters from mixing it up with an estimated 200 parade participants,” the Washington Times noted. “It was unclear how many of those arrested were affiliated with antifa, but photos posted online showed a black-clad antifa activist being carried off by police. Antifa protesters attempting to block a road scuffled with officers, as shown on video.”
A judge on Tuesday upheld many of the charges against the arrested protesters:

Irate Woman All Smiles Attacking Man in MAGA Hat. ICE Learns She’s Illegal and Makes Arrest


Reported By Benjamin Arie | Published February 26, 2019 at 5:02pm  | Modified February 26, 2019 at 5:04pm

Illegal Alien Showing Off The Hat She Assaulted

Assaulting someone over their hat is a crime, but bragging and seeking media attention for doing it while you’re in the country illegally seems particularly unwise.

Rosiane Santos was recently arrested for after assaulting a Trump supporter who was wearing a “MAGA” hat inside a Mexican restaurant in Falmouth, Massachusetts. Even employees of the restaurant confirmed that Bryton Turner had simply ordered food before he was accosted by Santos.

“Santos started yelling at him because of his hat, which bears the theme that President Donald Trump campaigned on,” Boston news station WFXT explained. “The woman is seen walking behind him and hitting his hat off his head.”

Even after being arrested, Santos claimed that simply being an immigrant allowed her to attack Turner.

“(B)eing discriminated for so many times in my life, I just had to stand up for myself,” she said in a phone interview with WFXT. “He’s not a victim. I am the victim. I have been bullied, OK?”

Going after someone because of a campaign hat and then drawing attention to herself on the news wasn’t a very wise choice. It turns out that Santos is from Brazil, and now the U.S. government says she was living in the United States illegally.

“The woman who was charged with confronting a man wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat inside a Falmouth Mexican restaurant is now in ICE custody,” WBZ-TV reported on Tuesday.

Her attention-seeking stunt definitely worked, but it will likely get her a one-way ticket out of the country.

“Deportation officers with ICE’s Fugitive Operations Team arrested Rosiane Santos, an unlawfully present citizen of Brazil, today near Falmouth, Massachusetts,” ICE spokesman John Mohan told the local CBS News affiliate.

“Santos is currently facing local charges for assault and other offenses. She is presently in ICE custody and has been entered into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts.”

For his part, Turner told WBZ-TV that the entire incident could have been avoided if the woman had simply respected other people’s right to wear hats or hold opinions she might not agree with.

“It’s just a hat at the end of the day,” he said. “I don’t really understand why people can’t just express themselves anymore, everybody has to get mad.”

The real irony of this story is that Santos just proved Trump and his supporters’ point. The left insists that “undocumented immigrants” are all good people who only want to join the melting pot and have better lives.

Conservatives, of course, have pointed out that there’s a lot more going on. While many immigrants don’t cause problems once they cross the border, a solid number seem to have a mentality of entitlement, making demands while stirring up trouble.

That’s exactly what this woman did on camera while continuing to play the victim. She and others like her wail about “MAGA” hats and angry Trump supporters, but it was her own unhinged behavior and illegal actions that got her arrested.

‘Terrified’ at Target


Reported by Chris Woodward (OneNewsNow.com) | Thursday, November 1, 2018

“That means that the law [in Massachusetts] protects his right to be in that bathroom – and as the police say, per this new article in the New Boston Post, on ‘October 16th we responded to a call of suspicious activity at the Woburn Target, we identified and spoke with all identified parties, an investigation was initiated, the information currently available to us indicates that there may have been no crime committed,'” Beckwith points out. “Again, [this] article identifies the man in that women’s bathroom as an adult biological male who identifies as a woman.”

It is here that Beckwith says he sees problems.

“First, he’s in there to begin with and who knows what he’s doing,” Beckwith explains. “At a minimum he has terrified this 10-year-old girl – and fortunately she is safe – but now the police can’t really do anything about it. Their hands are tied because of this law [because] it gives him a right to be in there as long as he claims to identify as a woman.”

If the parents had complained to store management – and had management prevented the man from going into the women’s restroom in order to protect the privacy and safety of all its customers, Beckwith says Target would be susceptible for up to a $50,000 fine.

Beckwith adds that if this was his daughter and he tried to stop the man from entering the bathroom, he could go to jail for up to a year, according to the law that’s up for repeal next Tuesday.

“I don’t think it mattered to that 10-year-old girl how that man may or may not have identified,” Beckwith concludes. “She was terrified – and this law allows him to be in there.”

The ACLU and Human Rights Campaign-backed Freedom for All Massachusetts says the law is about inclusivity and preventing discrimination of the transgender community. But Keep MA Safe argues that sexual predators can and will take advantage of the law, putting women and children at risk.

“We haven’t exactly gotten a fair shake when it comes to mainstream media,” says Keep MA Safe spokeswoman Yvette Ollada. “They are now editorializing and making things up as they go, or calling [us] to ‘get the other side.’ But really they just do it as a gesture and don’t even represent anything that our side says.”

Blog posts, press releases, and news clips have been launched from both sides of the debate in their efforts to raise more funds for their respective campaigns.

What Black Young Man Did To White Old Man Is Shocking!

He didn’t think about the cameras first, he just did it. It’s nice to have a good news story to report for a change. Someone snapped a pic of this young guy in the mall, helping an old guy who was having some trouble.

Alonzo Johnson stopped and decided to help a frightened elderly man down an escalator in a Massachusetts shopping mall last week. But the 23-year-old could never have predicted that his simple, random act of kindness would win him the praise of thousands of people online. Johnson said he didn’t know anyone was watching him when he asked the 83-year-old man if he needed any help at the Holyoke Mall at Ingleside last Thursday.

We could use 10,000 more like him. It would go a long way to putting aside those petty differences Obama helped magnify over the last 8 years.

UNREAL: American College Literally Says No To Flying American Flag

Hampshire College of Amherst, Massachusetts, has decided, in the face of the oh-so-scary victory by President-elect Donald Trump, to keep the American flag from flying on its campus, according to USA Today.

Hate-based violence accusations are sky-high, so college officials decided to fly the flag at half-staff. The flag was then burned by (presumably) a student. The community was understandably furious, so the same officials decided to remove the flag so no one became further upset.

The Facebook post by Hampshire College President Johnathan Lash said it all.

“Some months ago, the Hampshire College Board of Trustees adopted a policy of periodically flying the flag at half-staff to mourn deaths from violence around the world,” he wrote on Monday. “Last week, in the current environment of escalating hate-based violence, we made the decision to fly Hampshire’s U.S. flag at half-staff for a time while the community delved deeper into the meaning of the flag and its presence on our campus.”

“This was meant as an expression of grief over the violent deaths being suffered in this country and globally, including the many U.S. service members who have lost their lives,” he explained.Leftist Propagandist

A cynic might speculate that Lash added the bit about the fallen service members to appease the community that was so outraged about the flag’s lowering.

“Our intention was to create the space for meaningful and respectful dialogue across the many perspectives represented in our community,” he wrote. “Unfortunately, our efforts to inclusively convey respect and sorrow have had the opposite effect.”if-stupid-could-fly

Only someone who has become completely surrounded by liberalism would be surprised by this consequence. Seriously — what were they thinking?

Here’s what they learned:

“We have heard from many on our campus as well as from neighbors in the region that, by flying the flag at half-staff, we were actually causing hurt, distress and insult,” he wrote. “Our decision has been seen as disrespectful of the traditional expression of national mourning, and has been especially painful to our Hampshire campus colleagues who are veterans or families of veterans.”gag me

After hearing that some community members believed that lowering the flag was a commentary on the election, Lash expressly denied it. However, what Lash claimed removing the flag was all about was pretty telling.

“We hope (taking the flag down) will enable us in the near term to instead focus our efforts on addressing racist, misogynistic, Islamophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic and anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and behaviors.”

Now, who could that possibly be pointed toward?definetly

So it Begins: This State Forces LGBT “Accommodation” Rules on its Churches


waving flagBy Onan Coca September 13, 2016

untitledAcross the country states have been passing laws meant to defend the First Amendment from government overreach, and simultaneously liberals and the media have been decrying these protections as “homophobic” and “bigoted.” These same liberals have argued that conservatives are being paranoid and that no protection is needed… Sadly, Massachusetts has just proved every conservative fear accurate.

On October 1st the most draconian “non-discrimination” laws in the nation will go into effect in the Bay State. According to the new guidelines released by the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD), even churches must abide by the new, anti-Christian laws.

This effectively means churches must acknowledge transgender ideology or practice their doctrine on human sexuality in secret — putting Christianity in the closet.CP 01

The guidance specifically mentions churches as falling under the “public accommodation” restrictions against “discrimination” on the basis of gender identity: “Even a church could be seen as a place of public accommodation if it holds a secular event, such as a spaghetti supper, that is open to the general public,” the MCAD explained.no-doubt-about-it

The restrictions are massive. Any “public accommodation” must allow patrons to use men’s or women’s restrooms — and locker rooms and changing rooms— “consistent with their gender identity.” Such places must also “use names, pronouns, and gender-related terms appropriate to employee’s stated bathroom-protest-poster-640x480-1gender identity in communications with employee and with others.”

These are not small tasks for churches, Christian schools, and other organizations which operate on Christian principles.

get-over-itThis is exactly why legislatures and voters in dozens of states have been working so hard to pass the defense of religious liberty laws, and exactly why the liberals in those states have fought so hard to kill them. While the liberals have been telling us that there is no reason to worry, Massachusetts has a very different story to tell us. We cannot trust these liberals who attempt to assuage our feelings with soft words, because they most certainly will be stabbing us in the back the first chance they get…

And Massachusetts is Proof.
