    It would probably be easier for me to list the times that President Obama did not condescend to the American people, but I’ll leave that task for later. In the latest installment of Obama looking down his nose at average Americans, the President decided to designate the Stonewall Inn (a homosexual bar) in New York City as a National Monument before explaining to traditional marriage supporters why they were bigoted curmudgeons.

    On 1-year anniversary of decision, 'vile, cretin Christians' warned there will be no tolerance What for ages was condemned as immoral, now has moved to the center of America’s national life, and it’s influence is growing. On Friday, President Obama designated the Stonewall Inn in New York City, widely regarded as the birthplace of the homosexual-rights movement, as a national monument. It was just part of the “celebration” of the one-year anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s imposition of “gay marriage” on the country. Major corporations such as American Express are joining the tribute by launching well-funded “pride” advertising campaigns...

    On June 28, 1969, patrons at a gay bar in New York City's West Village neighborhood decided they had finally had enough after yet another police raid. As the NYPD attempted to enforce a law making it illegal to serve alcohol to "homosexuals," the resistance of the bar patrons turned into an uprising - the Stonewall Uprising - an event now widely credited with sparking the modern LGBTQ rights movement in the U.S. Now, nearly 50 years later, that same location - where members of the community stood up to government injustice - has been designated a new national monument...

    The area surrounding the Stonewall Inn is poised to become the first national monument dedicated to gay rights, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the property will always be a bar. There’s actually nothing in the national monument designation or even the city’s landmark law to prevent New York’s most famous gay bar from someday becoming a coffee shop, a frozen yogurt joint or anything else. […] The space was occupied for years by other businesses, including a bagel shop and a Chinese restaurant, before it reopened as a bar in the 1990s. In Stonewall’s current incarnation, under new owners since...

    President Obama is poised to declare the first-ever national monument recognizing the struggle for gay rights, singling out a sliver of green space and part of the surrounding Greenwich Village neighborhood as the birthplace of America’s modern gay liberation movement... Protests at the site, which lasted for six days, began in the early morning of June 28, 1969 after police raided the Stonewall Inn, which was frequented by gay men. While patrons of the bar, which is still in operation today in half of its original space, had complied in the past with these crackdowns, that time it sparked a...

The victim left the Christopher Street bar in the Greenwich Village neighborhood and returned an hour later, according to an NYPD spokesman. The victim...

"We´re not going to have to wait that long," Obama said. "From Minnesota to Maryland, from the U.S. Senate to the NBA, it´s clear we´ve reached a turning point." The president said that progress could be traced "from the courage of those who stood up." "Eventually America gets it right. That doesn´t mean we can be patient," Obama said.
