Organizer cancels gay pride parade in Wausau (WI)
WQOW Eau Claire ^ | Jun. 21, 2013

Posted on 06/21/2013 9:00:21 AM PDT by Sopater

WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) - The organizer of what would have been Wausau's first gay pride parade has cancelled it, saying he has experienced a wave of ugliness in the community.

Daxx Bouvier told Daily Herald Media (http://wdhne.ws/12ZwKye ) that he cancelled Saturday's parade after negative comments from a City Council member and in articles in local media.

Bouvier says people who had planned to be in the parade told him they were concerned about their safety.

City Council member Dave Nutting said at meeting earlier this month that people should boycott the parade or, if they went, turn their backs on "deviant-behaving individuals."

Bouvier lives in California but owns a home in Wausau. He says he has no further plans to organize gay pride events in the city.

Ugliness from the community and concerns for safety for the participants? Please, give me a break.

Uh, I don't think I'd offer my backside to any of these deviants.

If you want to see a ‘wave of ugliness’ go watch a Gay Pride parade.

oh look ,yet again these homosexuals come from the north east or the west coast and then try to force their sickness onto others.

He;s also a lying turd as the reason he cancelled was not ugliness from the locals but because no one hardly is attending.

He and his ilk from the west coast and the north east leave their liberal socialist bubbles and then act all surprised America does nto agree or want them

WAUSAU was the wholesome American city that was touted in the old insurance commercials, until immigration turned it into something else.

No way. Holder's people need to send the federal marshals in to force the citizens to line the streets and cheer. That's what freedom is all about.

I better not need a sarcasm tag on that one

Soon, you won’t be given that choice. You will prove your ‘acceptance’ or be unemployed, homeless and likely imprisoned for resistance...It’s for the children. In the pen, you will have it thrust upon you. Literally.

And everyone knows this is a pack of lies by those who strategically use the cover of victimhood to ruthless wage war on normal society.

years ago my wife and I and my oldest boy , back then was about 5 years old were in Boston and walking about when we turned a corner on Boylston street and what a sight,
Women dressed as nuns touching each other pretending to have sex, men in PVC daisy duke shorts and the mocking of Christians.
We stood there for about 30 seconds and got out fo there but walking back tot he train we had to endure perverts, cross dressers, homosexuals etc walking about and my boy asked why was those two men in little shorts showing their bum holding hands.

These people are sick and think they should get flags, stickers and have parades telling us they’re proud of their way of sex and then they wonder why millions of us think of them as freaks.

Keep your damn business private

Queers are ever the whining victim. The real victims and targets, especially for the male queers, are the young boys. Watch you boys, for Nambla is simply the new Boy Scouters of America.

I could never understand “Gay Pride” thing: what are they proud of? Imagine a “Herpes Pride”, or “Headless Chicken Pride” march. Absurd from any point of view, except perverted (pun intended).

Bouvier lives in California but owns a home in Wausau.

This is how we should respond to these Leftists: Notice that he has the wealth to own TWO homes at least, but he is sooooo oppressed. How? How is he oppressed? He's living better than 90% of us.

"...saying he has experienced a wave of ugliness in the community."

Typical liberal...don't agree with their outlook, it's "ugly". He could have said, "We are dismayed about it". No, those who oppose the gay life are "ugly". What a intolerant pr*ck.

I have come to absolutely despise liberal mentality. If the alphabet agencies want to target someone, they should be looking at the mental deficient liberals/socialists/communists who have No grasp on reality. I personally, think they all have gone insane due to their bleeding heart feelings, and have no concept of reality.

No Daxx, standing up for morality and decency is not "ugliness" Shirtless men marching in leather pants with the seat cut out, that's ugliness. If you want to see real ugliness do a Google image search on "gay pride parade", but be forewarned what you will see is very, very ugly.

Here in Pittsburgh, what started as a three hour parade a few years ago has metastasized into a two-day long Queerfest totally overtaking the streets of downtown, and culminating in an Adam Lambert concert.

Because it’s an easy way of “peaceful bullying”. If you’re not celebrating their “pride” then you must be a bigot. It’s purely about shutting people up.

That said, people from Cali or the north east really think only their opinion should matter, that somehow the rest of the USA isn’t really important. They also don’t realize how big their reality bubble has grown. They don’t see that the rest of the country looks at them and thinks “crazy”. To them, it’s “evolved” or “enlightened”. They’ve moved so far from truth they now have no idea of what it is, it’s out of sight for them to the point where it doesn’t exist.

They now “don’t know what they don’t know”, they couldn’t formulate a coherent philosophy if their life depended on it. I’d love to ask them what morals we should live by, you know, because we’re just “animals” and all (they constantly refer to the animal kingdom to refer to certain behavior as “natural”). OK, so, why have marriage at all? I’m sure “thou shalt not murder” so be thrown out too!! ...after all, to include such a concept in law would be mixing religion and government!!!
