Gay Pride parades step off across United States

Gay Pride parades are stepping off around the world, in cities large and small.

In the U.S., rainbow flags line the streets of New York City's Fifth Avenue. Politicians including Gov. Andrew Cuomo (KWOH'-moh) and Mayor Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH'-zee-oh) are among those walking along a lavender line painted on the avenue from midtown Manhattan to the West Village.

Marchers are commemorating the 45th anniversary of the Stonewall Inn riots, which are credited with launching the modern gay rights movement.

In Chicago, about 1 million people are expected at this year's Gay Pride Parade. It's the first since Illinois' same-sex marriage law went into effect. Chicago's parade is also in its 45th year.

Parades are planned Sunday from coast to coast. Festivals were held Saturday in France, Spain, Mexico and Peru.

Who else liked parades? Oh, yeah, homosexuals in the 1920s. They were less rainbow, more brown

I really don't get it....for decades they just "wanted to be left alone" and the famed "stay out of our bedrooms"....

don't they know just like forced segregation,this just builds an underlying resentment that will never, ever go away...

It sounds like the “openly gay” homosexuals still aren’t “proud” of themselves yet. Gotta keep those “parades” going. LOL! Clowns.

Yesterday here on vacation in Spain one of those gay, pedophile, bestiality, bisexual, transgender, necrophiliac parades went past our windows in the streets below. Sponsored by HIV clinics and all sorts of lubricant sponsors.
No one cared IMO.

They are not proud to be Americans. They are not proud of their country.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2014/06/26/proud-to-be-an-american-youre-probably-not-a-true-liberal/

The only thing they are proud of is the perverted sex acts they perform on a regular basis.

Cubs game at Wrigley Field was re-scheduled to accommodate this.

The Cubs and Nats played a double header yesterday so the fans wouldn’t have to go there during all the debauchery.

Many Boy Scouts, some along with their former scouting fathers and grandfathers, all in uniform, are also marching in this parade...to make a statement, I presume.

The national scout organization has a rule against marching in these gay parades in uniform.

We'll see if and how the rule is enforced.

They are gay supremacist marches, designed to show the strength of their numbers.

Obama has permitted US troops to march in uniform in these parades this year.

Of course, they can’t wear uniforms in a March For Life...

When you look back to the Third Reich, it becomes obvious that Nazis have always been fond of marching in parades. Big parades with lots of colorful banners.

Yeah, that was actually very kind to the fans. 30,000 or so baseball fans trying to get in and out af Wrigley amongst a million or so ‘Pride’ marchers might have been a real mess.

It is weird to not have baseball for the Nats or Cubs on Sunday, can’t remember the last time that happened in baseball season.

Military color guard to march in gay pride parade
Washington Times ^ | 6/6/2014
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/3164806/posts

For the first time, a U.S. military color guard is expected to march alongside rainbow flags in Washington’s gay pride parade.

The Washington Post (http://wapo.st/1j2L9Mg ) reports an eight-member color guard team from the U.S. Army Military District of Washington is scheduled to lead off the parade Saturday. The Department of Defense authorized the participation.

Organizers and military gay rights groups say this is a first nationwide for a gay pride parade. The color guard will present the American flag and flags of each military branch.

Capital Pride organizers requested color guards in the past but were rejected.

In Toronto, there were city planning meetings and the homofascists made it clear that they didn’t care about it being “family friendly”. They didn’t want to see their flaunting public nudity prosecuted.

They feel that it’s time for them to let their freak flag fly.

So much for being like every body else in the civilized world.

I saw an article earlier that said it was the Cubs' first scheduled Sunday off since 1943.

No. The most recent Gallup poll shows a nationwide average (state-by-state) of 3.5 percent homosexual.

Problem’s worse than I thought.

The survey methodology, statistical sampling, & percentage margin of error might bear looking into, though.

"There is a bright side. They cannot breed."

At the rate that America is submitting to the gay agenda, the day will come when breeders will be allowed to keep one child, all others will go to the gay agenda to ensure their security as the superior race, and that's how the view themselves as a racial entity.

Sounds crazy, surreal, impossible to imagine, but just 20 years ago, what is going on now, I thought impossible, everything happening is like what you would expect from some Sci-Fi movie.

I didn’t believe that it was possible to have less respect for the Obama family than I already had. That quality is indeed lower than it was an hour ago. I wouldn’t raise my head to watch him kill himself.
