Let’s see if you can keep this story “straight”… it ain’t easy, but here goes.
An openly gay man, Chris Bartley (who is, btw, a follower of Jesus, a #GaysForTrump supporter & an Eagle Scout) is one of the founding members of a group currently working to bring a “Straight Pride” parade to Boston. The group’s name ( I am NOT kidding) is Super Fun Happy America.
Barley’s bio on the SFHA website says,
“As gay ambassador, Chris uses his status in the LGBTQ community to challenge heterophobia wherever it exists. He became involved in the straight pride movement after being ostracized from established advocacy groups for merely suggesting that straight people be afforded equal rights.”
Queerty reached out to Bartley for comment on his involvement with the group and why, as a member of the LGBTQ community, he feels the need to promote Straight Pride. He responded;
“Lemme say first Trump and his entire administration have identified June as pride month this year and every year. My motivation to participate in this years straight pride is to make the far left realize how insane they have become and how overarching they are. Many lgbt people have reached out to me and have said that gay pride is not the way it used to be. It used to be about fighting against the ‘man’ and now it’s a drink and work with man. Essentially being a sheep. Gay pride used to be about free speech and now they are not. So this is why straight pride has become a reality. To showcase how extreme the left has become. I will be attending Gay Pride in Boston however will not be taking any questions from the media.”
As you might imagine, social media has been raking him over the coals, but trolls tend to like being trolled, so he tweeted something that seems to have been since deleted:
“Funny how every person who has attacked me is not remotely attractive and even some are individuals who I have denied to sleep with. This Straight Pride is to show how ridiculous the left is and boy are they showing it. Thanks to the left I am a Trump supporter and now doing this.”— The Free-Thinking Queer (@chrisbartley101) June 6, 2019
Oh and btw, Brad Pitt is threatening to sue Super Fun Happy America after trying to name him the official mascot of the celebration.
SFHA released images of Pitt on their official website naming him the
“ace of this important civil rights movement.”
Pitt wants nothing to do with the event which has ties to far-right neo-fascist group the Proud Boys, who promote white supremacy and encourage violence.
To give you an idea of what kind of troll Bartley is, this is one of his latest tweets after Pitt declined;
“Milo Yiannopoulos will be the headlining speaker in this years parade! #StraightPride”
I rest my case. (Actually Stephen Colbert makes an even better case here.)
Huge difference between the left and my tweet. I am very cordial to reporters and just are like you made a mistake. The left always resorts to violence and taking down individuals.— The Free-Thinking Queer (@chrisbartley101) June 10, 2019
