Black Lives Matter protest forces police chief to postpone LGBTQ mural event

Disclaimer. For those of you who are dense or cannot connect the dots for some reason. I will let you know this is me quoting the article.

BLM protest forces police chief to postpone LGBTQ mural event
Protesters forced Police Chief Mark Saunders to postpone the unveiling of a mural in the gay village Friday afternoon.

The demonstrators were from the group Black Lives Matter. They have been critical of the chief’s recent comment that the police force regrets its raids on gay bathhouses more than 30 years ago.

They said in a tweet that police were using the comments to try to erase what the group calls the police department’s racism problem.

The chief left the ceremony after the protest began.

The mural at 425 Church St., part of the city’s StreetARToronto Program, represents the Toronto Police Service’s past, present and future relationship with the city’s LGBTQ2S communities

It took graffiti artist SPUD1 almost a year to finish and depicts Saunders’ apology to the community for the bathhouse raids.

“This mural is a spot of permanent reflection for the TPS and for the community,” Saunders said in a release.

“We will only be successful in our relationships of today if we acknowledge and learn from our past.”

So they don't want the police chief to put up a mural for the Gay Community?

Seriously? One equality rights group was protesting at an event for another equality rights group? I've been mostly ignoring the stupid shit that the BLM people have done, but this goes too far. Major face palm.





I wasn't sure which picture to go with, but this level of stupid deserves both anyways.

The super liberals are infighting and imploding amongst themselves. Soon there will be a battle to the death to determine who is the most tolerant and progressive group.

Ahem: In respect to the header, I am going to say this ONCE at the beginning of the thread, and hope it sinks in, as an example to others:
WATCH THE F***IN' TROPIC THUNDER SCENE!!!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6WHBO_Qc-Q

No matter what giggling teen colloquialism has turned it into, "Going the Full Retard" does NOT, nor did it ever, mean:
1) Acting like an idiot unintentionally,
2) Acting like an idiot intentionally,
3) Doing something annoyingly "retarded" and ill-advised as a matter of policy.

Experienced actor Kirk Lazarus (Robert Downey Jr.) is telling egotistic-doofus actor Tug Speedman (Ben Stiller) why the creaking old joke of "Challenge yourself to play retarded and they hand you an Oscar" did not work for him any more than it did for Sean Penn or Leo DiCaprio.
(Namely, because critics find "realistic" mentally-challenged characters too disturbing, and prefer the likable "fantasy" ones with some excusable script dodge like Forrest Gump. Rather like the "Never go the full Catholic" observation critics used to make about funny, lovable movie nuns after Sound of Music.)

We MUST cure this disease in our lifetime. Slap one misquoting idiot down and two show up to take its place.
Do it for Downey, if not for Stiller, and do it for the love of good movie dialogue. I thank you, and hope for a better world.

Ah, This Thread Again(tm).

Since you couldn't be bothered to provide context in your rush to slam BLM for something:


Operation Soap was a raid by the Metropolitan Toronto Police against four gay bathhouses in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, which took place on February 5, 1981. More than three hundred men were arrested, the largest mass arrest in Canada since the 1970 October crisis, before the record was broken during the 2006 Stanley Cup Playoffs in Edmonton, Alberta.



September 14, 2000, fueled another fire under the LGBTQ community. The raids by 52 Division male officers in a women’s bath house prompted gay women to protest. Six male Toronto police officers raided a party at the Club Toronto bathhouse where they barged in on women, many of whom were naked. A group of women who were strip-searched during a bathhouse raid that targeted an all-female party in 2000 have rejected Wednesday's apology by Toronto police, because they say it isn't meaningful and comes with no real change.



After months of talks with police, the women who experienced the raid withdrew support from the official event held by Chief Mark Saunders Wednesday where he officially apologized for the police raids conducted on four gay bathhouses across the city in 1981, as well as other Toronto police bathhouse raids.


Toronto's LGBT community is very mixed on its reaction to his apology and mural. As for BLM, the police chief already has a history with BLM. This isn't something new where BLM just showed up to rain on the LGBT parade for no reason. The Toronto PD have been fucking things up for years.

OK first quote me instead of pretending I will notice later on.

I read the whole article and several others articles about it. About the police and other shit that when down 30 years ago. But you see that doesn't mean what these assholes did OK. So yeah I going to call them full retards all day long.

So not I will not read your wall of text. Since you couldn't be bothered to ask if I knew about the history of the situation. Maybe next time you shouldn't assume things instead you should bother to ask if I know about the history of the situation. In short no me importa un carajo what theses people excuses are.
Son these assholes are doing it to themselves all day every day and every month of the year.

slam BLM


Examples of them fucking up. They are hard to like or defend. I am just waiting for the first person they kill.

Oookay. You presented this topic. Whether or not you personally know the history of the situation doesn't matter if you don't present that as part of your topic. Its not my fault you left out the history and context of the story you're yammering on about. That's on you. The forum isn't psychic. With a story like this especially the context and history of it is important. Otherwise you're just intentionally creating a one sided topic to push your own opinion.

If you want to take a dump on the internet then abdicate responsibility for it while playing "lawl, too long didn't read" to avoid any discussion that arises then go start a blog.

God fucking damn it. I'm having enough trouble dealing with reasonable protesters here in France. I do not want to have to deal with unreasonable ones when I get back home.

For anyone confused about this reply, I've actually edited out the part of the title this refers to.

I appreciate that clip though. I'd never seen it and didn't realize that's where the phrase came from.
