Gay men have taken over the Proud Boys Twitter hashtag

Here's a movement for peace.






Quote:
The Proud Boys hashtag, which members of the far-right group have been using, was trending Sunday after gay men on Twitter hijacked it and flooded the feed with photos of their loved ones and families and with memes.

The Proud Boys recently made headlines by celebrating President Trump's reply at last week's debate, when he was asked to condemn White supremacists. The President instead used his allotted time to blame what he called "antifa and the left" for violence and to tell the Proud Boys to "stand back and stand by."
Well done, men.

Indeed, the Proud Boys are a far right group of white supremacists headed by a black Latino man. In the Presidential debate Biden surrogate, moderator Chris Wallace, followed up on Bunker Joe's false smear that Trump endorsed white supremacists in Charlottesville by insisting Trump by telling them to "stand down". Joe Biden nominated the Proud Boys for public shaming in the latter day equivalent of political motivated black listing. When Trump foolishly acquiesced to their demands the propaganda machine erupted with righteous anger over Trump's supposed failure to condemn white supremacists.

In classic 1984 style you endorse the violent takeover of a hashtag as a blow for peace.

I think lefties care way more about this than the Proud Boys.

I remember in the beginning of Proud Boys, its founder Gavin McInnes and Milo sharing a long, deep kiss . . . In Orlando, at a rally after the Pulse Nightclub massacre by a Muslim terrorist.

Bad words warning:
