People Are Furious After Police Escorted A Neo-Nazi Group To The Detroit Gay Pride Parade

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.

Talk about sending the wrong message.

One of the most wonderful things about children is their curiosity and eagerness to learn.

So, when they ask about things which seem like common knowledge to most adults, we will explain in detail with excitement, simultaneously broadening their horizons and, hopefully, improving their future decisions.

When we have to explain these same given facts to adults, however, we usually first greet them with a raised eyebrow, and force ourselves to hide our disbelief.

As no matter their education or upbringing, there are certain things one feels it should be safe to assume all adults know.

Redditor Lo-Fi_Kuzco was curious to hear things the Reddit community couldn't believe they had to explain to adults, leading them to ask:

"What's something you can't believe you had to explain to a grown adult?"

The term "addiction" more often than not comes with serious connotations attached to it.

Be it for drugs, alcohol, or gambling, addictions are usually viewed as a problem that needs to be fixed or cured.

But are there certain addictions that go unnoticed by the majority of people?

Or, more over, are there addictions that are, for the most part, accepted in modern society?

Redditor jperaic1 was certainly curious to know, leading them to take to Reddit to ask:

"What addiction is seen as completely normal by society?"

There are few feelings that fill me with more joy than the thrill of seeing a great movie. And let me tell you: When I find a great movie, I'm not afraid to revisit it time and again.

I recently rewatched Jurassic Park for the first time in years. How could I ever get bored of it? How could anyone? It's pretty much a perfect film. Those effects really haven't aged a day. Trust me, after really making the grave mistake of sitting through Jurassic World: Dominion, I was in dire need of something with considerably more substance. Jurassic Park is perfect.

People told us about some of their favorite films after Redditor HBomb101112 asked the online community,

"What film do you see as a cinematic masterpiece?"
