Thousands expected at NC gay fest days before DNC
Sacramento Bee.com ^ | Aug 25 2012 | Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Downtown Charlotte is expected to host thousands for a gay pride festival a week before the country's Democrats come to town.

...

Thousands of people annually attend the festival, which also draws dozens of protesters.

This year's festival comes after voters decided to add a prohibition against gay marriage to the state constitution, effectively slamming the door shut on same-sex marriages. The Democratic National Convention opens in Charlotte next week to officially nominate President Barack Obama as the party's presidential candidate this year.

Addendum: After NC passed Amendment One banning gay marriage this past May, it is ironic that the DNC will be held there and the gays out in full force:

“LGBT Pride Festival Could Be Biggest Ever In Charlotte “

“Charlotte’s annual gay and transgender pride festival is this weekend. Organizers expect the event to draw about 10,000 more people than last year’s. They say the passage of Amendment One and the Democratic National Convention are helping to draw people in.

The Pride Charlotte Festival will run all weekend and include concerts, art, street vendors, political booths and a kids’ area. Co-chair Dave Webb said it’s grown into a huge event.”

They are exaggerating the numbers on previous attendees. Only a very small portion of uptown CLT has gotten closed off for this in the past.

But hey, there is no "gay agenda", correct?

The libs are the gift that keeps on giving. What better thing to happen than to show the country what the liberal party is all about. Sodomy, perversion, lesbianism, and transexuals.

I hope they have enough bathrooms!

Imagine the mental contortions it takes to be “proud” of committing sodomy and the other perversions homos commit. Gross.

Dem convention focusing on gay marriage and full-term abortion. Winning issues.

Likely, yep, exaggeration. But it is an irony that North Carolina which passed Amendment 1 by a wide margin now must play host to the DNC and their gay allies. Ugh...

Uhhh I very seriously doubt that. This "movement" is NOT popular in NC.

It should be a crime for Northern Liberals to infiltrate a once proud, God loving Southern state like NC.

They have ruined the beautiful mountain town of Asheville with faggy art shops and second hand clothing stores. Yuck!

Is “queerfest” before or after the massive celebration of women’s health procedures, aka “abortionfest”

I hope the DNC is smothered with them for days. Doing what they do best.
On TV 24/7 so everyone can see what they like and what they want your kids to become.

Yes, I think this festival can probably go a long way in working against the gays and the Dems right before a presidential election.

“They have ruined the beautiful mountain town of Asheville with faggy art shops and second hand clothing stores. Yuck!”

You said it! Head shops, shock art, superfunky third world restaurants (try to order a hamburger and be told “Sorry, we don’t do European here”), clothing stores heavy on the tie-dye & sequined jeans, circa 1967 street people who are grayer but not smarter.

Was in Charlotte on Monday. The city is a patchwork quilt of ethnicities, lifestyles, & political agendas. Parts of CLT are also quite beautiful. The Democrazies & gayzies are just made for each other and next week will be a real ripsnorter. Those who actually live there seemed as resigned as the residents of Manila awaiting the invading Japs.

The more freaks that show up in Charlotte, the more NC tips to the GOP across the board.

I agree. It is truly astonishing.

...I hope the media cameras are out there in full force, covering this perversion, and transmitting it to the rest of the country.

I think the MSM just might be stupid enough to push for wide coverage of the event, not knowing it will work against them. ;-)

This is going to be very entertaining.

The week before the DNC, the homos will be out in force.

Then, during the DNC, there is going to be that huge gathering of Muslims. “Jumah at the DNC”. The event is expected to draw up to 20,000 Muslims.

Wouldn’t be entertaining if the two groups became aware of each other’s presence?

That is, tell the homos that after their event, they had better skedaddle out of town in a hurry, or the Muslims will get them and slap them silly, and the police will do nothing about it.

And tell the Muslims when they arrive that the homos have been touching everything after eating a lot of bacon and pork. (Which, of course, can turn heterosexual Muslims into homosexuals.) And that the homosexuals are still there, to lure Muslims into homosexuality.

Lots o’ laughs.

Great! I encourage all the perverts, sodomites, pedophiles, to come and support the rats?

let them kiss in public, wear thongs, and leather gear for the men and show the country what it is to be a rat!

let them talk about fisting and sodomy and give a good record of what they do, and let the rat’s support it!

That will surely win votes, right?

Blessings, bobo
