De Blasio won't be in NYC St. Patrick's Day parade
NEW YORK (AP) — New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio will not be marching in the nation's largest St. Patrick's Day parade, deciding to skip one of his city's signature celebrations because the event organizers refuse to let participants carry pro-gay signs.
De Blasio will become the first mayor in decades to sit out the traditional march along Fifth Avenue.
"I will be participating in a number of other events to honor the Irish heritage of this city," said de Blasio on Tuesday during an unrelated press conference at City Hall. "But I simply disagree with the organizers of that parade."
The parade, a tradition that predates the city itself, draws more than 1 million people each March 17 to line one of Manhattan's most famous thoroughfares to watch about 200,000 participants. It has long been a mandatory stop on the city's political trail, and will include marching bands, traditional Irish dancers and thousands of uniformed city workers.
will take long...May the FORCE be with you!

Imagine any other group demanding to carry signs in a parade. Imagine the NAACP demanding a float in the Irish-American parade. Or the Sons of Italy. Or descendents of William of Orange.
Or imagine a group of Evangelical Christians demanding a float in the homosexual "pride" parades.
What a noisy bunch of toddlers these homosexual activists are. And DeBlasio is just pandering.

The parade is for Irish Americans not for proclaiming kinky fetishes, do these people only live from one orgasm to the next? It must really suck to be homosexual because that is all you have in life.

We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.
