Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, June 08, 2019

Right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos has been named the grand marshal for Boston's "Straight Pride" parade. Organizers announced Friday the former Breitbart editor as the parade's grand marshal after they originally used actor Brad Pitt's name and likeness for the event. The head of Super Happy Fun America, a group that "advocates on behalf of the straight community," told the Boston Herald that Pitt "was not super happy" about the group using his name and likeness without his consent.

You guys are really doing this?

It's not a joke?

I thought "the straight pride parade" I keep hearing about was the checkout line at Costco.

They have the pedophile Nazi in it.

I hope they are able to rope in the hot gun chick who isn't hot and might not even be a chick who ---- her pants at a party at Kent State.

Only the finest of the very fine people for this very fine event.

Oh, it doesn't, of course.

Mackris barfs up lies, and bets no one will check.

Chris Evans has informed us the men responsible for this parade's motives are "desperately trying to bury our own gay thoughts"

Really?

So he plays a macho man in movies and that makes him qualified to know this how?

Why don't actors just shut up and act?

Maybe he's just insecure because he's the least attractive Chris of the Chris quartet (Pine, Hemsworth, Pratt).

He might just be a little stupid on top of it to question the sexuality of some men in his fan base who might actually think a Straight Pride Parade is a cool idea.

Your absolute cluelessness is appalling.

Homophobes think a "straight pride" is cool...nobody else.

I guess you'd know.

Angry,

Notice I did not sing the praises of such a parade.

I really am not sure how I feel about it.

It probably doesn't really matter because I have my doubts this will materialize.

However, the point being made is they should have the "right" to have one.

About Chris Evans.

He was stupid because, let's face it, his job is wearing tights and showing his muscular body.

Come on...his fan base consists of a wide range of people including some who are most certainly closeted men. His comment came off as a back handed insult intended to shame closeted men.

But the point is it's rather pathetic to simply call these men who are making the news about this parade a bunch of closeted men "desperately trying to bury our own gay thoughts" without realizing there is more to this.

Using association and shame to insult someone is one of the oldest tricks in the book.

Assigning this clown to be marshal took away any pretense of this being a serious event.

It's trolling and nothing more.

These whackjobs always end up being so blatantly obvious.

"What's wrong with white pride?"
***Puts on Klan robe***

"Why isn't there a straight pride parade?"
***Organizes racist, homophobic protest***

Except that it could never have been a serious event in the first place.

Where is the straight Stonewall?
Where is the straight Lawrence v Texas?
Where is the straight Obergfels?

The whole idea is preposterous to begin with.

I tend to agree.

It is really stupid to question a white supremacist's sexuality.

Deeze nuts will cut ya.
