The organizers behind Boston's Straight Pride Parade should concern you

Some of the organizers are close to neo-Nazis and other white supremacists.

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.

The three men organizing the parade, planned for August 31, are John Hugo, Mark Sahady, and Chris Bartley, who is called the “gay ambassador” on the event website. Sahady has ties to groups like the Proud Boys, the New Hampshire American Guard, and the Massachusetts Patriot Front.

Hugo unsuccessfully ran for the Massachusetts’ 5th Congressional District in 2018 with support and endorsement from Resist Marxism, a group that is considered to be “alt-lite” and holds anti-Semitic, misogynist, and anti-LGBTQ views.

Ahead of a Central Maine Pride Festival event in Waterville, Maine, last month the group posted on Facebook “Attention Patriots in Maine” to alert people that a drag queen planned to come in and read children’s books. Referring to Medicaid covering transition-related surgeries, the group asked, “Are we living in clown world?” The phrase “clown world” is popular in far-right spaces, according to Right Wing Watch.

Has anyone else read or heard of this on the Main Stream Media, as of late.....................nope, the public, got to see how a fascist authoritarian wanne-be had to try with all his might to behaved himself on the cemetery grounds over looking Omaha Beach, that was donated by a French man to bury the dead from the battles of June 6, 1944 to August 1944 in the Normandy region during World War II. I am guessing most people do not know that the land came from a French Farmer, because it is hardly ever mentioned, and then the media gave him a passing grade on his remarks, like he was doing some FDR moment ............................ .
