Capital City Pride and their discrimination
I watched a video tonight of “Capital Pride” in Olympia Washington, the weekend of June 20th 2015. What I saw surprised even myself.
I have a gay cousin, and she is a concealed carry permit holding gun owner, so I know that not all gay folks hate guns.
But I was surprised to see the anti-liberty, anti-tolerance response of the gay pride organizers of the Capital Pride gathering this year when legal open carry activists come to show their support at the pride event. In the video one of the best points was made that I have heard to date, about “you would think that gays would embrace the gun culture especially with so much anti-gay violence in the world” (paraphrased).
I took the video clips and reuploaded them to both youtube and dailymotion because its videos like that that many liberals go after in droves and try to take down because it shows their hypocrisy.
One comment on the messages left for the original video made a good point. “Experience gay privilege at Pride”, and that is the points that I made in the intro of this video.
After all, what is pride about? Is it about tolerance? Is it about liberty? Is it about the constitution? Is it about equality? What is gay pride about?
I venture to say that if you have no choice, and gay is something that you are born with. Then these “pride” decals on cars and “Pride” events like this, are nothing more than someone sporting “white pride” or “brown pride”? It is completely vain and narcissistic to have pride in something that you have no control over. I get the advocacy thing. I get the unity thing. I get the standing up for your rights thing. I do not get the “pride thing”. As I kid, I grew up in a family where my father was a very proud “white man” and he had a lot of commentary on the issue. It seeped into my young mind for a short time as well. But really looking at the concept, it doesn’t make much sense!
Sure have pride in something that you have done well. Have pride in your job. Or your education. Something that is special to you, that you worked hard for, that is not just something that you were “born with”. But do not expect other people to tolerate you, if you won’t tolerate them.
This is my remake of a couple of the videos that this group posted. See the links at the bottom for their original content.
This is the description from the original video;
“On Saturday, June 20th of 2015, the organization Capital City pride took up residence in Downtown Olympia in the state of Washington. The posted video is a first hand look at how the organization claims to stand for equal rights for all, even saying so on many items of merchandise sold and given away all during the event.
A group of 4 community members tried to enter the public event going on with their assorted weapons and gear on their bodies. All of the weapons had loaded magazines and clear chambers. As the Second Amendments states, citizens of the United States right to bear arms shall not be infringed. As the group attempts to peaceably enter the event and partake in the festivities, the Capital City pride staff blocked the entrance and told the group of 4 to go away because they “Do not feel safe with people with guns around” even though they were there to support and defend the rights of the people.
This blatant act of discrimination should not be allowed. They cannot be taken seriously as an organization that is all for rights and equality if they block the entrance to a public area based on what a person is wearing, or what they look like. They are more willing to hate on somebody exercising their civil rights that are guaranteed by the constitution to further make sure that their own feelings aren’t hurt. This type of hypocritical behavior is a prime example as to why groups like these aren’t taken seriously.
