The Canadian Forces just trolled the Proud Boys in the most beautiful way
After Trump refused to condemn white supremacy last Tuesday at the first Presidential debate and told the Proud Boys, a “far-right neo-fascist male-only organization,” to “Stand back and stand by,” the LGBTQ2 community has flooded Twitter with the hashtag #ProudBoys to portray images of love and acceptance. Earlier today, the Canadian Forces shared their own image and message with the hashtag.

If you wear our uniform, know what it means.If you’re thinking about wearing our uniform, know what it means.Love is love. Know what we mean? — Canadian Forces in (@CAFinUS) October 4, 2020

The idea for using the hashtag at this time apparently originated with actor and author George Takei, best known for playing Sulu on Star Trek, who’s been a strong critic of President Trump.

I wonder if the BTS and TikTok kids can help LGBTs with this. What if gay guys took pictures of themselves making out with each other or doing very gay things, then tagged themselves with #ProudBoys. I bet it would mess them up real bad. #ReclaimingMyShine— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) October 1, 2020
