    The event is billed as a "straight pride parade," but it's not just about heterosexuality. A flier for the celebration posted online describes an amalgamation of conservative rallying cries: Christianity, Western civilization, "babies -- born and unborn" and more.

    American Thinker ^ | 4 Jul, 2019 | Ethel C. Fenig
    If a tree falls in an isolated forest but no one hears it, does it still make a sound? If the United States, under President Donald J. Trump (R), celebrates American Independence Day, the 4th of July, with a powerful display of pride and patriotism in the nation's capital but the so called major networks refuse to televise it live, did it happen? It's a worthy question because that's what the big networks are planning to do. While scientists and philosophers may dispute the answer to the former question, the answer to the latter is a resounding "yes!" Oh sure,...

    President Trump’s July 4 “Salute to America” parade will feature the typical fireworks display but will also include a bevy of military hardware as the White House seeks to emphasize the U.S.’s military might. While the military’s display of force has sparked criticism among Democrats who say the parade will echo those of authoritarians and cost taxpayers upwards of $2.5 million, the president has repeatedly hyped the event. “People are coming from far and wide to join us today and tonight for what is turning out to be one of the biggest celebrations in the history of our Country, SALUTE...

  • Imperial AT-ATs Begin Arriving In Capital For Military Parade (satire)

    07/03/2019 2:20:20 PM PDT · by Beave Meister · 6 replies
    WASHINGTON, D.C.—Ahead of Trump's planned July 4 military parade, several dozen Imperial walkers began to arrive in Washington throughout the week. The AT-ATs were dropped off by U.S. Space Force Star Destroyers just outside the city and then slowly marched toward the capital (rather than being dropped right next to their target, for some reason). Military bands solemnly played the Imperial March in honor of their arrival. Trump was seen at the White House, pointing excitedly at the looming all-terrain armored transports through an Oval Office window. "Wow, look at those guys!" he said while gleefully clapping his hands. "Do...

    CANONSBURG, Pa. (KDKA) — A protest is planned for one of the area’s biggest Fourth of July events. Participants are pulling out of the annual Canonsburg Fourth of July Parade, fearing the planned protest. “We’re going to shut it down,” Trey Willis Sr. said on his Facebook Live video discussing the protest. Willis Sr. told KDKA that the demonstration will remain peaceful, but protesters want their voices heard. He expects 100-200 people will join him in protest on the morning of the parade. “We’re intending to just shed light on the practices coming out of the district attorney’s office,” Willis...

    US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez turned tail on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue to avoid a potential Republican challenger as they both marched in the National Puerto Rican Day Parade on Sunday, her political opponent said. Talk-radio producer Rich Valdes told The Post that he tried to challenge the freshman Democratic congresswoman to a debate on the merits of capitalism versus socialism when he spotted her near West 47th Street. But Ocasio-Cortez “cut her handshaking short, jerked her hand back and jetted to the other side of the street,” Valdes said. “She literally ran!” he said. “I thought this was a good time...

    Right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos has been named the grand marshal for Boston’s "Straight Pride" parade. Organizers announced Friday the former Breitbart editor as the parade's grand marshal after they originally used actor Brad Pitt's name and likeness for the event. The head of Super Happy Fun America, a group that "advocates on behalf of the straight community," told the Boston Herald that Pitt “was not super happy” about the group using his name and likeness without his consent. “I really like his movies and his lawyers sent us a letter asking us to take his stuff down but, you know,...

    When a trainload of tanks, guns, and other military hardware supposedly seized from the Syrian battlefields pulled up at Kursk railway station on a cloudy afternoon this week, a jubilant crowd was there to greet it. An orchestra belted out Soviet war songs. A state-funded paramilitary youth movement performed a dance for world peace. A World War II veteran in battered shoes lauded Russia's armed forces. And officials in slick suits delivered the obligatory praise for the president and commander in chief, Vladimir Putin. "The next generation must understand that the enemy is not far away," said Acting Regional Governor...
  • 'God Emperor' Trump Float Presides Over A Parade, Terrifies Everyone

    A massive floating effigy of Donald Trump mixed with God Emperor from the game Warhammer 40K surfaced at a parade in Italy. If you thought the giant float of "ugly baby Trump" which started following United States Of America President Donald Trump around since last July was bad, then there's worse things coming your way. At a parade in Italy, a mechanical float of Trump, mashed up with the “God-Emperor” character of the Warhammer 40K video game, took to the skies. And the general consensus for the float was a strong "Um nope." The float which appeared at the annual...

Yes, YOU are the real problem, you un-woke bigots. Sigh. I miss America.

    Armed protesters fired on the unarmed Iranian soldiers in a parade yesterday, killing 30. This was not ISIS but a local group, displaying the division and weakness within Iran. More on the downing of the Russian plane and the slow but seemingly inexorable path toward war, due to the financial threats on Russia, Iran, and Turkey. This is still the calm before the storm but the dark cloud of the Ezekiel War can be seen. More comments on America's role in all of this, and a report on Amir's ministry here in the U.S.

    A troop of golden retriever puppies stole the show when they took part in Chile's annual military parade. The fluffy young dogs snuggled, tongues lolling, in neon green pouches worn across the chests of a row of marching police trainers. The puppy section was followed by a line of uniformed men walking adult golden retrievers and labradors, which all wore little boots. The dogs belong to the Canine Unit of the Carabineros de Chile, the country's national police force.

    PYONGYANG (Reuters) - With no long-range missiles on display, North Korea staged a military parade on Sunday focused on conventional arms, peace and economic development, to mark the 70th anniversary of the country’s founding. Line upon line of goose-stepping soldiers and columns of tanks shook the ground before giving way to chanting crowds waving flags and flowers as they passed a review stand where North Korean leader Kim Jong Un sat with a special envoy from China, as well as other visiting foreigners. Kim told the envoy, Chinese parliament chief Li Zhanshu, that North Korea was focusing on economic development...
