The driver of a pickup truck struck and killed one man and injured another as marchers were getting ready to begin a Pride parade in South Florida on Saturday, the police said.
Justin Knight, president of the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus, which was participating in the parade, said in a statement that the driver was “a part of the Chorus family.” He added, “To my knowledge, this was not an attack on the L.G.B.T.Q. community.”
The police said they had not determined the cause of the crash, which happened just before 7 p.m. as officials and marchers were gathered for the Wilton Manors Stonewall Pride Parade. The parade is an annual event in Wilton Manors, a city of about 12,750 just north of Fort Lauderdale that is home to a large L.G.B.T.Q. community.
I heard that the driver says his foot got stuck under the accelerator. I also heard that he was drunk.
Regardless, tragic accident. But the posers on twitter went apeshit calling this a act of terrorism and blaming it on DeSantis. Really. Search #deathsantis and look at the latest stuff.
Shit-for-brains Lauderdale mayor:
Man, I just despise people, more and more every day.
Yeah, but that's gonna happen; you're always gonna have fringey dipshits who blame everything, no matter how unrelated, on their political enemies. I will admit, though, that ever since 2016, these types of people seem to be less on the fringes and growing in numbers.
