St Patrick's day is about the patron saint of Ireland, not phaggots.

What the two mayors show is a lack of support for veterans.

This is not right. What do homosexuals have to do with the patron saint of pikey roofers?

You stupid filth.

Sexually sick homophobes are on the way out. These politicians are making that clear even to slow learners such as yourself.

And the veterans aren't objecting to having firefighter or police or schools or lgbt people marching as such in the St P Day parades.

And all of them can march as veterans just like everyone else. They just can't fly gay flags, wear chaps with their asses hanging out, etc. That's not what this parade is for. They have gay parades to flaunt their queerness in.
Sorry but the gay population and their organizations are also tax paying citizens and should have every right to march in a "Public" parade as long as it's done in a tasteful manner ! All Americans should have the same rights and that includes the gay population ! You simply hate gays and your obvious predigests are shining through ! The mayor did the right thing not to show bias !

Gay were invited to march as veterans, they refused. They also couldn't produce more than one questionable gay veteran. They wanted to do the offensive gay pride thing instead. They hold gay pride parades for that.

We know you are merely sexually sick, you lying sack.

Lots of groups march in the St P Day parades with some identification other than just Irish.

This is just another pogrom you want and won't get, you filth.

if perverts are allowed to parade with banners, then bring on the Nazi, el quaeda,shining path, farc and all the rest , because there is no difference.

queers are paedos, and disease spreaders, therefore dangerous to society, so all the same.

you cannot pick and choose between filth.

if they come down on smokers and drinkers, then come down on the faggots and slappers as well.

why should the ordinary non pervert pay extra for those maggots in health dues.

Yes, they do, but they can't wear their gay t-shirts and carry their rainbow flags.
Are gay veterans ashamed of being just veterans? I think just as many gay people were opposed to this 'gay pride' stunt.

Where are these lgbt people who are opposed? Besides in the recesses of your sick, deluded mind?

I guess you think it's only str8 people now who object to the bigotry of the parade organizers, since even you know, as removed from reality as you are, that the mayor and other politicians and corporations are avoiding the bigoted parade.

And are you saying that police who march in the parade as police are somehow ashamed of being just Irish? Because that's your cracked logic, you stupid bigot.

Well you're not a very bright troll, because a lot of Irish politicians and Irish citizens come over to participate. But the point you were making was addled, anyway, besides the obvious refutation I have provided to your witless noggin.

Well you should dig him up and tell him that, troll, because that has nothing to do with the simple factual statement I posted, which prompted a blitz of self contradicting, uninformed nonsense from you.

It should have reduced Dublin to rubble - like Desden, Hamburg and Cologne.
Your stream of consciousness suggests a fugue state. And I don't mean in the church music sense, troll.
