Group behind so-called ‘straight pride’ march is a right-wing organization with a tendency toward anti-Semitism

Published

on

June is LGBTQ Pride Month but many homophobic activists find the celebrations so objectionable that they sought to collect snowflakes everywhere for a “Straight Pride” event. Now the group behind it is being unearthed as a right-wing organization with a propensity for anti-Semitism.

The Daily Beast reported Wednesday that it didn’t take long for the group once they announced the march for straight people who feel they’re an “oppressed majority.” Far right activist Kyle Chapman is the founder and he’s working with organizer Mark Sahady on the event.

Sahady said that he secured the permit for the event, but questions to the Boston government office revealed he had not been granted a permit thus far.

Sahady has an extensive history of controversial right-wing events in the Boston area using a group called Resist Marxism, which Chapman founded. Chapman became famous by beating anti-fascist activists with his eponymous “stick,” the Beast wrote.

Chapman is no longer involved in the event, possibly because he’s busy dealing with felonies in two states due to assaults. Sahady has taken over in his absence.

But a history of Sahady’s internet shows a history of promoting liberals being thrown from helicopters. Resist Marxism is far worse.

“In leaked internal chats published in 2018, members frequently made anti-Semitic jokes and used anti-Semitic slurs,” the Best reported. “At least one Resist Marxism event had security provided by Patriot Front, a white-nationalist hate group.”

The event is set for August 31, though it’s unclear if it will be permitted or if the men will lose interest by then.

‘The country got an education’: Nicolle Wallace explains why impeachment could move public opinion

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace offered her analysis after the day of televised hearings in the impeachment inquiry.

Wallace, who served as White House communications director under President George W. Bush, drew upon her experience as a top Republican strategist.

"Listen, I haven’t spent a nanosecond in a courtroom, but I’ve spent my career in the court of public opinion. And if you look at what the Democrats have set out to do and you look at why this has swung public opinion in a way the Mueller probe never did is that they have laid brick on top of brick on top of brick," Wallace explained.

Room erupts in laughter as Democrat Peter Welch destroys Jim Jordan during impeachment hearing

Published

on

There was a moment of levity four-hours into the first televised hearing in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the bombastic Freedom Caucus member who was added to the committee at the last moment by Republicans, had argued that the White House whistleblower started the scandal.

"There’s one witness, one witness that they won’t bring in front of us, they won’t bring in front of the American people, and that’s the guy who started it all, the whistleblower," Jordan argued.

Unfortunately for the wrestling coach turned politician, Jordan was followed by Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT).

Constitutional law expert Laurence Tribe succinctly debunks Jim Jordan’s defense of Trump

Published

on

Constitutional law expert Laurence Tribe debunked the key defense of President Donald Trump that was offered by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) during the first televised hearing in the impeachment inquiry.

Jordan did not address the fact President Donald Trump solicited foreign election interference in violation of federal law, but attempted to debunk the additional charge that there was extortion/bribery.

The Ohio Republican argued that there could not have been a quid pro quo because the aid was eventually released.

But Tribe, who has taught at Harvard Law for half a century and argued three dozen cases before the United States Supreme Court, fact-checked the congressman who never passed the bar exam.
