The Black Lives Matter movement was supposed to serve as the grand marshal for San Francisco’s gay pride parade for some reason but pulled out of the event when they learned there would be a heavy police presence.
Black Lives Matter pull out as pride parade grand marshals in face of beefed up police presence
In the wake of the terror attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla., that left 49 patrons dead, many gays are arming themselves, adding the #ShootBack hashtag to the Pride flag, and taking advantage of free license to carry courses.
While it might seem that participants in LGBT events like this weekend’s San Francisco’s Pride Parade would appreciate an increased police presence after the Pulse massacre, that doesn’t take into consideration the ever-shifting liberal hierarchy of grievances. Islamist terrorists are bad, but what about police?

The gay community just suffered a major terror attack that left dozens of people dead. Why can’t Black Lives Matter members understand why the parade organizers would want lots of cops there?
