On Saturday, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went to bat for battiness.
Oddly, some accused parade participants of bigotry.
Witness an ode to contemporary idiocy: A group of people tries to shout down a point of view as they accuse others of “bigotry,” which means “intolerance for an opposing view.”
But this is where we are — as I stated recently (here), words no longer mean anything.
Apropos, on the scene were individuals reportedly identified with Antifa.
From USA Today:
Protesters, including many who identified with the anti-fascist group Antifa, shouted “Nazi scum!”
And as per The Boston Herald:
“We’re covered in black so when we attack these guys we can’t be prosecuted,” said Jon Crowley, an Antifa member who told the Herald that he felt violence was the only way to deal with the people marching in the parade, which went from Copley Square to City Hall Plaza. “They are fascists, 100%. How else are you going to get them to shut up?”
Some goons got pinched and thrown in the clink.
According to previously brain-bashed conservative journalist Andy Ngo (here), a number of those arrested were guilty of assault and battery on police officers:

Luckily, the ‘rested ralliers have a friend in Washington — cowfart fighter AOC is here to make it A-Okay.

I dare you to make sense of that.
So now being straight is fascism?

Being straight = white supremacy

I’m trying to figure out how it was a white supremacist parade if African Americans marched in it as well. Seems weird doesn’t it? That’s because if it doesn’t make sense then it’s not true.

@AOC is this you showing publicly you fully support antifa and what they represent?

According to AOC, being straight equals white supremacy.

Unlike Antifa, one tweeter owns a dictionary:
Antifa are violent facists. If you support them, then you’re a fascist.

Sydney Watson had a question:
I was there. Those “activists” are terrorists. They spent the day calling for violence and I watched them ASSAULT police officers.
They instigated violence. They want violence.
Now you’re raising money for them?
How the hell are you an elected official?

The Daily Caller was scratching its head, too:
The Caller reached out to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s office to ask why she is supporting individuals who openly planned violence and allegedly assaulted police officers, but received no comment.
Antifa groups across the United States have engaged in violence with many conservatives and journalists in general in recent years.
Aw, cut the black-masked, violent living embodiments of irony some slack; as Don Lemon’s said of Antifa, “No organization is perfect.”
Alexandria is right: It’s time for America to come together and fight the white supremacy of heterosexuality on display (which, to me — incidentally — is silly).
Thankfully, as for the “LGBTQ community impacted” by the parade, they were fully represented — by Grand Marshal Milo Yiannopoulos:
