In case people forgot...

DEMOCRATIC DELEGATES BOO THE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA
Valerie Richardson
THE WASHINGTON TIMES
August 18, 2000

LOS ANGELES -- When Gloria Johnson learned that a group of
Eagle Scouts was about to take the stage at the Democratic
National Convention, she immediately went into action.

She and other California delegates grabbed poster board and
markers and made signs that read, "We Support Gay Boy
Scouts." As the uniformed Scouts took part in the opening
ceremony, the delegates, seated in the front of the hall,
waved their signs — and booed.

Under normal circumstances, jeering at children is the sort
of behavior that might get a delegate sanctioned, if not
booted from the convention altogether. But anyone who
expected the Democratic leadership to scold the Boy Scouts
of America bashers is attending the wrong convention.

"DEMOCRATIC DELEGATES BOO THE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA "

There were reports that the delagates spit on the Eagle Scouts as they were preparing for the flag ceremony.

I wish the Dems would keep their promise and move to Canada and Europe.

That made me sick to read. Thanks for posting it anyway.
I must have missed that when it was posted here...
