In attempting to prove that liberals are the real bigots, Sean Hannity cited NY City Mayor ("Comrade" DeBlasio) Bill DeBlasio's decision to boycott the annual NY City St. Patrick's Day parade because of their exclusion of LGBT groups. One of Hannity's panelists, Eric Bolling asked (twice) if heterosexuals can march in a gay pride parade. While Hannity didn't know, Kimberly Guilfoyle (ex-wife of the former mayor of San Francisco) said that, as far as she knew, pride parades are open to straight people. Eric needs to know that pride parades welcome straight people, including homophobic bigots like the blustering Bill Donohue, head of the Catholic League, whose application to march in the NY City Gay Pride parade was accepted.
Donohue, if he marches, will be sporting a "straight is great" banner. Perhaps Bolling (and Hannity) should join Donohue!
Fox “News” should participate in the parade since some of their employees are gay. Nixon trainee Ailes needs to drag out that Fox “News” satellite truck, the one with the giant logo on it, and drive it down the parade route, blasting disco music.
Since he admires college guys, and strong men, Putin-admirer Hannocchio is perfect to represent the network.
The truck rolls down the parade route. A beer-belly, shirtless Hannocchio, donned in a pink boa, matching pink baseball cap and tie, holds up a picture of shirtless Putin on a horse, mouthing to the crowd, ‘I love this man!!!’ He waves the picture in sync with the song, “It’s Raining Men” and the crowd goes wild.
Annie makes a surprise appearance in the parade, promoting her new musical, “Victor/Victoria.” In the new production she plays a woman who portrays a man who pretends to be a woman. An easy role for her.
You’ve got to be joking!
Slanthead has no pride in anything about himself. His entire acknowledgement this St. Patrick’s Day was to drag out the very tired old recording (done at least a dozen years ago) of his tired old announcer Scott Shannon posing as leprechaun, with the memorable line: “Seaannnn…. ohhhhh Hannnnity.”
Every St. Patrick’s Day, every year, he plays this garbage three times. And since this LGBT controversy has been raging for many years also, St. Patrick’s Day gives Slanthead yet another opportunity for homophobic bashing (not that he ever needs an excuse).
Hannity, who had a shanty Irish attitude as a young punk, would just as soon forget his South Shore roots now that he lives in a 17-room McMansion on the North Shore.
But yeah. Straights have long been welcomed in the Pride events and they’ve participated whether as gay-supportive parents or siblings (other relatives too, but these are usually the ones most deeply connected to LGBT individuals) or friends or co-workers or even gay-supportive strangers. The other thing about Pride is that there’s not usually as formal a structure system as other “theme” parades—people don’t have to march under a “banner.” There are groups and organizations that march under a banner but people can typically just make plans to march, show up and march (some of the parades may require some sort of registration process but people are rarely turned away).
Gay or straight,
Love is great!
