Seattle’s Pride Parade has taken a detour from its original purpose and is now using its platform to spread hate towards Republicans. This alarming display of bigotry was seen in the form of a large wall with the sign “Basket of Deplorables,” featuring images of notable Republicans such as former President Trump, Gov. Ron DeSantis, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Rep. Mitch McConnell, and Sen. Ted Cruz. This divisive and petty act does nothing but promote a toxic us-versus-them mentality, teaching children to despise those who hold different political beliefs.
The Disturbing Thing Children Were Instructed to Do at a Pride Event https://t.co/dHvUBsOdkl

In a video that captured the disturbing scene, an individual actually encouraged young children to throw plush brick toys at the images of these Republicans. It is reprehensible that such behavior is being condoned and promoted at an event that should be celebrating love and acceptance. Instead, it has become a breeding ground for intolerance and political bias.
Sadly, the radical left routinely engages in excitement to violence.
But trying to teach it to young kids, that’s a new low for them…. https://t.co/YXbSc7N2mm

It is concerning to see that Democrats are now targeting young children to instill hatred and disgust for Republicans. Studies have shown that children’s minds are incredibly impressionable, absorbing everything they hear and see. By manipulating this vulnerability, Democrats are seeking to brainwash children into accepting their extreme progressive agenda. This tactic is not only unethical but also deeply manipulative.
Sen. Ted Cruz rightfully criticized the Left for resorting to brainwashing children with their divisive and violent rhetoric. It is clear that the radical Left has no qualms about stooping to new lows in their pursuit of advancing their agenda. Encouraging violence and promoting hate at an event that is supposed to be inclusive and accepting is a testament to the moral bankruptcy of the progressive movement.
Furthermore, the presence of trans-identified teenagers protesting and distributing pamphlets with messages like “I don’t want to look or be cis” only adds to the blatant disregard for unity and understanding. Instead of fostering a sense of mutual respect and dialogue, they choose to alienate and antagonize those who may not share their views. This sort of behavior is counterproductive and only serves to further divide our society.
To make matters worse, a school bus covered with the progressive Pride flag drove through the streets with a banner that read “Protect Trans Kids.” While it is crucial to create a safe environment for all children, using this platform to assert political messaging is inappropriate and detracts from the true message of Pride parades.
It is disheartening to witness the decline of events that were once meant to promote inclusivity and celebrate diversity. Seattle’s Pride Parade has become a hotbed of partisan hatred and political indoctrination. It is imperative that we recognize these tactics for what they are and work towards a future where events like these can once again focus on what truly matters – love, acceptance, and celebrating the diversity of our beautiful country.
