In case you didn't know, the police were a major reason for the start of Pride in the first place.

The person who instigated the Stonewall Riots and the gay liberation movement, Marsha P. Johnson, did so in direct reaction to the police performing a raid on the Stonewall bar in the West Village in New York City.

So people were understandably unnerved to see the police providing an escort to Nazis at a pride parade.


At Detroit's Motor City Pride Festival on Saturday, June 8, a faction of Neo-Nazi protestors showed up to give grief to those celebrating pride.

They were accompanied by a police escort.



The marchers held flags with swastikas emblazened on them and reportedly ripped up rainbow flags and yelled "white power" and "sieg heil."

And quite frankly, people haven't the stomach for it.








In a Pride month so far dominated by homophobic attacks in the UK, the growing threat to the LGBTQ+ community is very real.

So why were the police protecting those who wished to do the parade attendees harm?





The Nazis persecuted and killed gay people in the Holocaust.

Believe it or not, Canadians don't live in igloos or freeze to death all year round. If you go to Germany, it's highly unlikely that every German you meet will be cold and uninviting. Hop over to the United Kingdom and you're not going to run into tons of people with terrible teeth and bad hygeine.

These are called stereotypes, my friends, and it's best you leave them at the door. People were more than willing to strike down some stereotypes about the countries they know and love after Redditor HelloThere577 asked the online community,

"What are some false stereotypes about your country?"
