On June 19, 1995, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that Boston's St. Patrick's Day parade was a privately run operation that could write its own rules for participation.
Writing for the high court, Justice David Souter noted that gays and lesbians had never been barred from marching in the parade; they were banned from marching under their own banners. The court's unanimous ruling was a victory for the First Amendment right to freedom of assembly.
Once this decision was reached, gay and lesbian groups in many cities, including New York, were angry, and some tried, unsuccessfully, to march without a permit on the same day as the big parade.
The protests quickly fizzled: Only a very small contingent of gays and lesbians showed up in subsequent years. Now the fight has been rekindled, thanks to New York Mayor Bill de Blasio: He is not marching in the parade because gays and lesbians can't march under their own banner. Other public officials have followed suit.
It must be noted that the organizers of the parade, the St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee, do not allow pro-life Catholics to march under their own banners. Nor are NRA Catholics allowed. But just as gays can march, so can pro-lifers and NRA members; they simply must blend in like everyone else. No one feels victimized save for homosexuals.

As Michele Bachmann said at CPAC. They are the REAL bullies.
Guess we could use St. Patrick’s services again to drive away these modern day “snakes” (Sodomites)!!!
Have piles of sh...er....Obamastuff available.
After all, are they not already used to the stuff?
Kick the crap out of them at the parade. Here’s hoping a gang of drunk Irish bring crowbars!
guess these bone smugglers spell it differently....
“New York Mayor Bill de Blasio: He is not marching in the parade because gays and lesbians can’t march under their own banner. Other public officials have followed suit.”
And yet...The St. Patrick’s day parade went on, people had a great time, and no one noticed that they weren’t there — What a country — God Bless America and the Irish.
Hey Mayor, keep the dog poop out of central park, make sure the garbage is picked up on time, and fix the pot holes — Other than that, just shut your pie hole.
I’m clearly not liberal enough to understand all of this.
St Patrick’s Day is not a celebration of sexuality in any form, is it?
The homosexuals stage gay pride parades and events, in which they celebrate their lifestyle and sexuality and flaunt it to the world.
Why do they need to insert themselves and their sexuality into unrelated events, such as a St. Patrick’s Day event?????
Or do you have to be liberal to understand all of this????
Let's keep St. Patrick's day traditional!
You have to be liberal to understand it. St. Patrick stands for Catholic...which stands for an opposition to all that is of the homosexual agenda.
If they were really proud they wouldn’t do all this. They would leave normal people alone.
Thats kinda what I was thinking......Don't know if I would want to mess with a bunch of drunk Irish.............But then if something happens then they get to play the victim card and yell homophobe.
I LOVE THAT MOVIE!
We had the unfortunate experience of going to San Francisco one day and being stopped at an intersection so the gay parade could pass by. I was in the back seat with my granddaughter and kept her occupied so she wouldn’t look out the window and be scarred for life.
and they’ll be praised for , but try to do the same with their Gay pride parade and all hell will break loose
It certainly is an excellent movie.
Does Leonardo Dicrapio die in it?
Just bring hecklers to laugh at them and they on’t be so ready to crash parades again. Sodomites hate being ridiculed more than being hated.
Is THAT ever true! They despise anyone laughing at them more than anything else. It's a component of the deep and simmering anger that percolates within them. There is no more angry a sector of the populace than homosexuals.
If any of these degenerates show up at the parade in their ranbow tutus, a handy group of good ‘ole Irish lads should show them the working end of a shillelagh.
“Mayor Bill de Blasio...is not marching in the parade because gays and lesbians can’t march under their own banner.”
Sounds like a win-win to me.
Are you willing to pay their legal bills after they are jailed and go on trial for committing a "hate crime" assault?
Only homosexuals are so aggressive to see their “inclusion.”
Do Irish demand to march in the Chinese New Year parade?
Do anti-abortionists demand to be represented at Marathons?
Do engineers demand special exhibits at art shows?
Who else does this? Theirs is truly mental illness covered with leftist ideology. A terrible mix.
Patrick Fitzgerald and Gerald Fitzpatrick
> If they were really proud they wouldnt do all this. They would leave normal people alone.
They’re cloaking their real reason. They just want to be around a lot of drunk men in hopes they’ll get lucky...
It’s purely to challenge everyone in every corner at every opportunity. They just want to weed out anybody that is against them and protest discrimination...bully tactics.
Ultimately, it’s because of their need for affirmation of their lifestyle, they’re insecure and being in everyone’s face in public (forcing them to shut up) makes them feel empowered.
I work nearby and generally stop by during lunch hour. I will be skipping it this year. Have no desire to watch them parading and swish around in their green boas.
What is the name of the movie. I think I missed it.
The chilling truth.
I don’t remember if he lives through the movie or not. Its one of those where only a handful survive though. Rather appropriate for nineteenth century organized crime.
They certainly have no sense of humor about their condition.
The Gangs Of New York.
They need to be careful. Some of the old NORAID types can give a good Irish Kneecapping and also know how to keep their mouths shut when the cops come.
Not a bad movie despite DiCaprio who fits the part of an Irishman as much as I do a Sicillian, but it’s not historically accurate.
If we could use some other term other than “gays bent” it would be appreciated.
“Gays Bent on Crashing St. Patrick’s Day Parade”
I don’t think the Dropkick Murphy types will approve.
The agitators are not pro-homo they are anti-straight.
To Maine Mariner: Gangs of New York
To mountn man: “Does Leonardo Dicrapio die in it?”
Now I can’t ruin it for those who havent seen it can I? lol
“There is no more angry a sector of the populace than homosexuals.”
Did you leave out Muslims?
Anyway, the street flamboyant faggies don’t realize the backlash that’s stirred up among normal people. Much more subtle are gay parenting couples in today’s TV sitcoms.
It’s like the final Armageddon will be immediately preceeded by Sodom & Gomorrah.
Considering the ethnic makeup of New York City’s police force, it’s debatable how hard the “perpetrators” would be pursued. And there are various ways of disguising one’s appearance to make identification difficult, if not impossible. It IS a parade after all, and it wouldn’t be inconceivable that some of the participants or obervers would want to celebrate their Irish heritage by coloring their faces and hair green. Or wearing green wigs and leprechaun masks. Or something similar.
And it’s very likely that no one in the crowd would see anything ... anything at all. And from what little they did see, the poor Irishmen were attacked by a gang of tutu-wearing faeries, and did little more than defend themselves.
I saw them NOT because of Dicrapio.
Pretty much, if a movie stars Dicrapio, I probably will avoid it.
(not that I go to see many movies, 1 maybe 2 a year)
The gays feel they have a right to crash the party;they claim to be “Gay Lick”...
