Organizers of Boston's 'Straight Pride Parade' have ties to far-right groups

While Boston’s planned “straight pride parade” has created a fountain of hilarious jokes, there is a serious issue at hand with organizers’ close ties to far-right groups. Some of the organizers are close to neo-Nazis and other white supremacists. The three men organizing the parade, planned for August 31, are John Hugo, Mark Sahady, and Chris Bartley ...

Sahady has ties to groups like the Proud Boys, the New Hampshire ‘American Guard’, and the Massachusetts Patriot Front. Sahady is an organizer with Resist Marxism, is seen on video rushing towards and grabbing a trans woman at the Boston Women’s March in January. Sahady’s social media posts reveal that he considers violence an acceptable response to counter-protesters at their events.

Hugo unsuccessfully ran for the Massachusetts’ 5th Congressional District in 2018 with support and endorsement from Resist Marxism, a group that holds anti-Semitic, misogynist, and anti-LGBTQ views. Kyle Chapman, who founded Resist Marxism, has a history of violence, and ... went by the nickname ‘Based Stickman’ after he hit a protester over the head with a wooden rod at a pro-Trump rally.

Bartley retweeted Jack Posobiec’s support of the parade.
Posobiec perpetuated the conspiracy theory known as “Pizzagate,” that alleged a Washington, D.C., restaurant served as a child trafficking ring. In 2016, a man, who prosecutors said subscribed to that conspiracy theory, fired several shots into the restaurant.

1. Of course they do!

Family ties? At least....Organized hate groups are a pocket universe akin to an incestuous family.

The saddest bunch of losers ever seen, "Incels R Us". See how many "activists" will make it out of the closet in Mom's basement and actually march - they are the bravest, most "together" of their ilk. There won't be many, and they will look f'n pitiful.

2. This looks like a Russian psyop. There are over a million Russians living in the tri-state area.

I imagine some of them are spies.
