Don Grundmann, a Christian white nationalist who heads The National Straight Pride Coalition, says the group will return to Modesto, California to stage a “straight pride event.” The first “Stanislaus County Straight Pride Event” drew approximately 20 attendees and 200 counter-protestors.

The event will be held outside of a Planned Parenthood “to protest the genocidal slaughter of the black community.”

“We have a celebration of life in all of its aspects: masculinity; femininity; the natural family of man, woman, and children; children born and unborn; Western civilization; Christianity – everything which builds the culture of life,” Grundmann told the local ABC station in an attempt to explain the connection to LGBTQ people.

He rejected the previously admitted connection to white nationalism, saying “We know that our opponents will attack us, and they have the same tired thing of racism.

“It’s very clear,” Grundmann said. “We’re there to oppose Planned Parenthood killing 20 million Blacks.”

A flier for the event claims the healthcare organization has killed more Black people worldwide than any other group other than “the religion of Islam.” They will protest there, the flier says, “in defence of ALL lives.”

The group’s website decries the “inherent malevolency/evil of the Homosexual/Sodomy Movement” which is attacking “Western Civilization,” which they define as “West is Best.” They also say that Christianity is under attack by “Humanism/Satanism.”

The website also says that the white race is “the mass majority biological racial component of the developers of Western Civilization” and that Christianity is “the religious foundation” of Western Civilization.

Like last time, organizers plan to counter-protest.
