Black Lives Matter Shuts Down Pride Parade For 20 Minutes Over Police Presence (VIDEO)

Minneapolis, MN – About 150 Black Lives Matter protesters halted the Pride Parade on Sunday for about 20 minutes over last minute invitations given to police officers to participate in the parade.

The cannibalization of the left continues. The left are made up of many different groups who compete for the highest spot on the Marxist ladder, trying to out liberal each other every chance they get.

The Hill reports:

The protesters wanted to raise the issue of police treatment of minorities. They were also opposed to the decision to extend an invitation last-minute for police officers to take part in the parade.

The Star Tribune reported Sunday the parade was held just after a controversy had erupted over whether uniformed police officers could take part in the event.

The protesters who halted the parade shortly after it began were carrying signs with phrases including: “Black Lives Matter,” “No KKKops at Pride! Make Pride Revolutionary Again!” and “Justice for Philando.”

Some of the protesters were chanting: “No justice, no peace, no pride in police.”

The procession resumed about 20 minutes after it was halted by protesters, according to The Star Tribune.
