WTVJ, First Station to Sponsor and March in the Miami Beach Pride Parade ^ | 4/15/14

Posted on 04/16/2014 7:13:32 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Over the weekend Miami Beach Pride 2014 took place and just one station (ahem) was there. WTVJ it turns out is the first local television station to sponsor and officially march in the parade. You’d be forgiven if you thought WSVN held that honor, I did as well, but as it turns out that is not case. Or maybe I’m thinking of Fort Lauderdale.

Team 6 showed up in full force, decked out in purple and dressed up for the occasion with plenty of signage promoting the station

NBC 6 anchors Jackie Nespral, Jawan Strader, Adam Kuperstein, and WTVJ assistant news director were also on hand

WTVJ even hired an airplane to drag a giant NBC 6 banner behind it

What’s with Miami Beach Pride? Why aren’t they calling it Gay Pride? Are we just supposed to know they are proud of being homosexual?

Have the homosexuals now co-opted the word “PRIDE” as they have done with the word “GAY”? So now only homosexuals can say they have pride? Or, anyone expressing pride, we’re supposed to think they are homosexual?

Dunno, but I think it is a pretty big deal when an ENTIRE NEWSROOM promotes the homosexual agenda, and it is owned by the network.....

I’m coming to appreciate this use of euphemisms. I mean, who wants to read about a “Sodomy Parade”?

The euphemism disguises nothing and fools no one. (At least not for long.)

But it’s like an air freshener in an outhouse: The flies aren’t fooled; they’re still drawn because they smell the filth. But good and decent people are spared from at least some of the odor.

Further proof that Anita Bryant was right.

From Wikipedia:

In 1977, Dade County, Florida, passed an ordinance sponsored by Bryant's former friend Ruth Shack that prohibited discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. Bryant led a highly publicized campaign to repeal the ordinance as the leader of a coalition named Save Our Children. The campaign was based on conservative Christian beliefs regarding the sinfulness of homosexuality and the perceived threat of homosexual recruitment of children and child molestation. Bryant stated:

"What these people really want, hidden behind obscure legal phrases, is the legal right to propose to our children that theirs is an acceptable alternate way of life. I will lead such a crusade to stop it as this country has not seen before."

The campaign began an organized opposition to gay rights that spread across the nation. Jerry Falwell went to Miami to help her. Bryant made the following statements during the campaign:

"As a mother, I know that homosexuals cannot biologically reproduce children; therefore, they must recruit our children" and "If gays are granted rights, next we'll have to give rights to prostitutes and to people who sleep with St. Bernards and to nail biters."

She also added, "All America and all the world will hear what the people have said, and with God's continued help we will prevail in our fight to repeal similar laws throughout the nation."

An anti-Bryant campaign button in support of a boycott of the Save Our Children campaign for which she served a spokesperson. On June 7, 1977, Bryant's campaign led to a repeal of the anti-discrimination ordinance by a margin of 69 to 31 percent.

When I was a kid growing up down there, Ralph Renick, Miami TV’s big newsman, sounded the alarm over “Bayfront Bennies” who had been lurking downtown’s Bayfront Park.

“Call the police immediately of any suspicious activity, especially around children.”

Today Bayfront Bennie has been selected to the Presidency, and the homosexual onslaught goes on 24/7.

His actions are just as nefarious now as then. But PC, islamocommunism and hussein make being queer seem hip and cool.

Someone who is always in your face is not a very happy person no matter how gay it all seems.

I was born grew up in Miami during the late 40’s through the 60’s and remember Ralph Renick very well. I remember when he was forced to stop pronouncing Miami as Miamah as it was always pronounced by the native born and raised population down there at the time. He was a legendary figure in the early days of TV down there for sure.
