‘Civilian’s Pride’ Continues The Fight For Equality With New Parade Initiative Inspired By The Work Of SHFA

Why should only service members and military veterans get parades, cookouts and discounts at The Home Depot? That’s what one organization wants to know.

The activists at “Civilian’s Pride”, inspired by the brave dedication to equality and inclusivity demonstrated by the gentleman at Super Happy Fun America, have begun efforts on the first ever “Civilian’s Day Parade.”

 

In an exclusive statement made to Turtleboy, a spokesperson for Civilian’s Pride said:

“For far too long we have celebrated the contributions of our active service members and military veterans, while leaving the accomplishments of our non-military brothers and sisters to suffer in silence and darkness. There’s not one parade, day, cookout or 5% discount at Tim Horton’s Cafe and Bake Shop or The Home Depot dedicated to the brave men and women who never enlisted in the armed services. This is shameful and an affront to all that we do as civilians. We are not anti-military, simply pro-civilian. If they can have a parade, so can we. Without civilians, there wouldn’t be any veterans!

Our non-military citizens contribute so much to this great nation, in both times of peace and times of war. They are truly the heartbeat of America, and critical to the continued success and prosperity of our economy and infrastructure. As non-military civilian citizens, we keep this country running strong, and we deserve recognition and celebration for all of our valor and sacrifice!

The struggles that our non-military citizens are very real. According to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Annual Homeless Assessment Report, as of 2017 there were around 554,000 homeless people in the United States on a given night, or 0.17% of the population. 13.7% of the US population, comprised mainly of non-military civilians do not have health insurance or access to affordable healthcare, and the age-adjusted suicide rate in 2017 was 14.0 per 100,000 individuals. Many of these individuals were civilians. We can do more for our brave civilian community!

We encourage everyone to embrace our community’s diverse history, culture, and identity regardless of sexual orientation.


We will educate the public about non-military strengths and issues, and foster unity and respect by having a parade.”

You can follow the parade’s new Facebook page by following this link. 

Or, if you’d like to help donate to their cause, you can visit their GoFundMe. 

 

According to the GoFundMe,

Our inspiration and brothers in civil rights activism, Super Happy Fun America (organizers of the “Straight Pride Parade”) currently have a fundraising goal of $5,000. To say “thank you” to them for inspiring us to stand up and say “If they can have a parade, we can too!” We are looking to exceed their goal, with our own goal of $5,001.

 

It’s great to see the work of SHFA inspiring others to stand up for their rights, too!

    If you were to actually do your job and be the investigator you want to be, you might just read the WHOLE GoFundMe..at the bottom it says

    “All proceeds will go to supporting veterans, because we support our servicemen. Is the same true for super happy america and the LGTB community ??”

    Not an exact quote but pretty close. Regardless, the whole things a joke, making fun of the “straight pride parade.”

      If you had taken a moment to get your head out of your ass you would have realized this whole thing is directing traffic towards their GFM and FB pages in order to troll SHFA. It’s a double troll.

        I think I’m going to do a literate pride parade next. 30 people will be eligible to show up, max.

    One veteran I know who I thanked for his service thanked me for his pension. Dude is a complete asshole, but then he was an officer or “useless person”.

    You know who else really loved parades, Adolf Hitler.
    Now there’s a guy who really had his shit together, all he tried to do is unify the world and of course exterminate all the Jews, Blacks and Fags but like always some bleeding heart liberals spoiled it for him.

    I am a veteran. I will never again get the chance again to be just a civilian. So, I honor those who remained civilians. They stayed out of the way, on the sidelines, and helped in little tiny ways, while we shaped history. Thank you, Civilians, it’s time for YOUR parade.

    No,no,no! Only the gays should be allowed to march in parades. The whites should be banned!

    Turtleboy loves fags and thinks they’re the only ones that should have a parade. The entire Turtleboy organization, top down, loves fags. So woke!

    They should get into the Way Back Machine and do it during the Vietnam days. I wonder how it would have gone then?

      Mr. Peabody (Ty Burrell), the most accomplished canine in the world, and his boy, Sherman (Max Charles), use a time machine called the “Wabac” to embark on outrageous adventures. However, when Sherman takes the Wabac without permission to impress his friend Penny (Ariel Winter), he accidentally rips a…

      Two things. Thank you for your service. It’s people like you that make this country great notwithstanding the second thing which is how the fuck did you ever pass the ASVAB?

    Holy shit. This can’t be real. Please tell me this website isn’t endorsing something so fucking stupid. A fucking parade? And a GFM? For who exactly? Non military civilians? What the fuck? Newsflash to any asshole involved in this. How about you just be a good person? Do things that better the people and environment you’re in and can directly impact in a positive way. You don’t have to go around shouting about how important the guy who gave me my coffee is (if that’s what this is even about, I’m still not sure). I understand his function in society and show that by giving him my money for his services. Cherry picking stats about the homeless doesn’t reinforce your point, it’s taking away from it. If you think everyday people need a parade to be recognized you’re not combating the insanity, you’re part of the problem. Us normals will continue to go to work and be productive while these fucksticks play dress up and march around town with each other. Fuck this is stupid.

    Please tell me the end game is to get rid of all the ridiculous parades and charades.
    If so, I am fine with this; otherwise, it is a smack in the face to those who keep us free and safe.

        That makes this even dumber. People aren’t going to bother finding out if it’s legit after reading this horseshit nonsense. Even if they’re donating every dollar, it’s hard to imagine people will donate because of the initial premise that it’s for ‘civilians’. This is borderline retarded.

          It appears to be for a good cause, though-unlike the straight parade.

            It’s like selling tickets to an all you can eat buffet with the proceeds going To organizations that fight Anorexia and Bulemia.

        Thanks for pointing out the Gofundme. I had only read their Facebook page and had no idea whether to laugh at their joke (because they were ridiculing Super Happy Fun America), or get angry because somehow they might actually be serious. Hopefully their plan works

      There’s probably a Budweiser real American heroes video out there that will help with this.
