Maybe the organizers can find some Mayor from some buybull belt city to march in his stead.

Who cares if that replacement is Irish as long as he or she is homophobic?

Yeah, Irish-American. We have them. We have African-Americans, Native Americans, German-Americans, etc. Makes me wonder if there are any good old-fashioned Americans left.

gays LOVE parades. Any excuse to mince and prance in public, they take it. It makes the think they are in a real Broadway musical or a Judy Garland film.

Notice the usual closet case fixation only on male homosexuals. It's lust packaged as outrage.

Also note again how the extreme misogyny forms the underpinning of the presented homophobia.

These are just bigots who have extreme problems with adult women and with any hint of femininity.

Hey shiteater, Why do Queers call straight people what they are, a filthy a:ss disgusting Queer????
Answer: because Queers are mentally ill and don't know any better than to use what they are as an insult to someone else. Then again, they could just be so stupid, they actually believe that, because they're perverted and disgusting, that everyone else is that way to. Even a Queer knows there's no greater insult than to be called a filthy Queer.

Nuff said you filthy a:ss Queer

Still not a jot about lesbians. But it sure does provoke a response to point out what this fact means, psychosexually.

No one thinks a closet case, extreme homophobe is tantamount to a gay man, btw.

Isn't imperialism a beetch? Especially when your empire is gone...except for the royal family's billions and billions.

That Boston bombing, like most of these turrur incidents, appeared to have oily fingerprints of elements in the US intelligence community hovering all around.

Oh I know, occupying territory isn't "imperialism" in proper, UK English.

But we speak English over here. Sorry for any confusion.

That would clearly be another example of imperialism, although "colonialism" or "genocide" might be better.

You didn't refute the obvious fact of what I posted regarding Ireland. Perhaps your command of English (any variety) is less than what I first suggested it to be.

What does it say about Marty Walsh if he abandons the veterans for a few gays that refuse to follow the rules? Same goes for Boston Brewing and the others. I hope people remember this next election and only gays vote for Walsh.
