The thing that really gets me is when homo-bigots are not content to just hate us for ourselves, but have to take the extra step of connecting us with something vile … like pedophilia, bestiality or white supremacy. From the New York City St. Patric's Day Parade comes this gem.
In an interview with the Irish Times published on Friday Hibernian chair John Dunleavy said, “If an Israeli group wants to march in New York, do you allow Neo-Nazis into their parade? If African Americans are marching in Harlem, do they have to let the Ku Klux Klan into their parade?”
Dunleavy went on to tell the paper that “People have rights. If we let the ILGO in, is it the Irish Prostitute Association next?”
For the past 16 years, the NYC parade organizers have kept the queer contingent from marching as an identified group as permitted by a court ruling on religious freedom. Apparently, they are not content to simply disallow homos but have to take it one step further.
And guess who marches in spite of these hate laced comments? Senator Hillary Clinton. Are you stunned that she'd sell us out for a good PR moment?
