Organisers of a 'Straight Pride' event have called in the bomb squad over glitter

Thu Jul 04, 2019 5:27 am

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/newsbeat-48852990

The organisers of a so-called "straight pride" parade in Boston have claimed to be victims of terrorism after receiving envelopes full of glitter.

Three members of Super Happy Fun America called the authorities over envelopes filled with a "granular substance".

The letters prompted a response from the FBI, three fire departments and the bomb squad.

The FBI is investigating but says there is no threat to public safety.

Super Happy Fun America call themselves "an advocacy group for straight rights," though members of the group have been found to have links to far-right and white nationalist groups.


I guess snowflakes are not compatible with glitter. :rotfl:

Good to see this horrible threat to straight, white folks was taken seriously. :sarcastic:

Did they drop the envelopes and ran around with their hands up screaming like little girls?

As we've seen with recent "milkshaking" incidents where the milkshakes contained highly caustic quick-drying cement, sometimes things aren't what they appear to be and the prudent choice would be to make sure that the glitter is indeed all glitter and only glitter.

I’d like to see what you all would have done if you had received a strange anonymous envelope in which you could feel/hear a strange substance through the envelope? It’s all fun and games to you idiots until someone actually gets hurt or killed.

Except the "highly caustic, quick drying cement" was no such thing. #FakeNews

Okay, forget the quick drying cement controversy... Still assault whether it had cement in it or not. But, besides that, they also bludgeoned a man in the head with a crow bar... Is this funny to you as well?

That must be why he needed 25 stitches... The video is literally online of the antifa mob striking him in the head multiple times with the crowbar. You can see his head split open in the video. You can also see the shots of his injuries in the hospital. And yet, losers like you who will defend anything, even if it means downplaying actual violence in the pursuit of political aims. And you wonder why our society is going down the shitter.


Look no further than your disgusting dumpster fire President for inspiration. He’s the one that constantly incites violence at his rallies and tweets. But of course you conveniently ignore that, don’t you?

If "both sides do it" how do we not know this was a neo Nazi beating of a gay Asian?

BACK ON TOPIC:

With all the suspicious envelopes of white powder making people sick being sent to Democrats and "liberal" media outlets, it makes me wonder what was in this guy's head that was the first thing he went to? hmmmmmmmmm.........

It is hard to believe someone with "ual" in their name would call someone else a "loser".

Well let’s face it, if it’s in your hands already not much you can do about it at that point.

Except have a sparkle party, one surmises.

What happens when you go to unreliable sources, read headlines, and don't care about details, you miss key pieces of the story.

Yes, it was assault, and yes assault is reprehensible, It should have ended there rather than adding fake drama and undermining the credibility and seriousness of the story...
