Gay Trump Supporters (aka “Raggots”) Plan To Protest Charlotte, NC PRIDE Over Exclusion

Gay Trump supporters who were denied a place in the city’s annual Charlotte Pride parade are staging a protest at the popular event on Sunday afternoon.

The Charlotte-based Republican group Deplorable Pride said their march will begin 30 minutes before the parade, and they intend it to be “a non-confrontational peaceful demonstration.” The group will walk from Romare Bearden Park on Church Street to the corner of Trade and Tryon streets, which is the center of Charlotte Pride activities.

“Come and show your support for your fellow Trump supporters who are LGBT and are being persecuted by their own gay community,” said statement on Deplorable Pride’s Facebook page. “Please help us show that intolerance is not acceptable.”

A spokesman for Charlotte Pride defended its decision Friday, saying the nonprofit has the right to exclude any group it feels does not reflect the parade’s values of welcoming groups on the fringes of American society, including undocumented immigrants.

“In the past, we have made similar decisions to decline participation from other organizations espousing anti-LGBTQ religious or public policy stances,” according a Charlotte Pride statement. “Charlotte Pride envisions a world in which LGBTQ people are affirmed, respected, and included in the full social and civic life of their local communities, free from fear of any discrimination, rejection, and prejudice.”

As if religious protesters opposed to homosexuality, BLM and SJW’s ruining PRIDE is not enough. Now this?

  1. I was willing to show my face and you heard my voice. You and the gay community will NEVER silence me nor will you ever force me to go away. I am here today, I will be here tomorrow and next year. You will see me at next years pride. You think you can shut those up in our community that have different opinions than you? You are the true “raggots” When is the last time any of you showed some balls to stand for what you believe? NEVER!

What do you think?
