Via The Modesto Bee:
“Insults turned to violence on Saturday as the National Straight Pride Coalition clashed with over 200 LGBTQ and pro-choice counter-protesters. It’s the fourth consecutive year that demonstrators have assembled in front of the Planned Parenthood building on McHenry Avenue, and like last year, violence quickly ensued. A scuffle ensued as a Proud Boy attempted to push past the police, said Richard, who watched the violence as a “straight pride” supporter but did not identify as a Proud Boy himself. Counter-protesters started throwing water bottles in retaliation. More than 25 police officers armed in tactical gear descended on the scene. Police fired pepper spray bullets into the rainbow-clad crowd of counter-protesters, injuring at least two people who were whisked away by volunteers. Police also used bean bag guns, which looked like orange shotguns.”
The National Straight Pride Coalition is run by Don J. Grundmann who is not only anti-LGBT, and anti-abortion, but he is also a self described racist (see video below) who brazenly attempts to justify his sham group by claiming “The PP genocidal holocaust against the black community (documented at BlackGenocide.org ) which has killed more than 20 MILLION blacks; i.e.; the Abortion Industry/PP is the biggest killer of blacks in the history of our nation“
Grundmann ran as an Independent in the 2022 U.S. Senate California Primary and won a whopping .01% of the vote.
