Pro-Hamas protesters disrupt Philly ‘Pride’ parade

The first weekend of Pride Month in the “City of Brotherly Love” could be a preview of things to come when ideologically incompatible elements of the Democrat base come together.

On a festive Sunday, LGBTQ+ revelers turned out in the streets of Philadelphia to celebrate their sexuality, kicking off an entire 30 days in which they will be honored by the government, corporations, pro-sports leagues, and the media, but the day didn’t go off without a hitch when pro-Hamas protesters disrupted their parade.

Video footage posted to social media shows the clash of the aggrieved when a mob of anti-Israel activists crashed the holiday party, loudly chanting “Palestine will live forever!” and “From the sea to the river!,” a variation of the controversial slogan calling for the genocide of Israeli Jews.

The video of the disruption shows the activists – some of which are wearing the checkered keffiyeh scarves favored by Hamas terrorists – as they interact with celebrants of the Philly Pride March and Festival near the intersection of Locust St. and 11th St. shortly after the parade started in Washington Square for the march to Philly’s Gayborhood, the Mecca for the city’s homosexual population.

In the clip, LGBTQ+ partiers who are festooned in rainbow garb, are seen banging on drums as the protesters loudly shout and wave a rainbow banner with the words “No Pride in Genocide” with the mood turning ugly as some participants appear to be ready to act out against the pro-Hamas elements.

At one point, the protesters chanted “PPP, KKK, IOF they are all the same,” seeming to lump the Philly Pride Parade members in with the Ku Klux Klan and Israeli Occupation Forces.

The confrontation made for some very lively discussion on the X platform, formerly known as Twitter.

There’s just no way to reconcile the opposing viewpoints, so with the anti-Israel mobs fully activated, the next four weeks could be pretty interesting.
