Remember, it’s the gay pride parades that are out of control displays of bacchanalia unsuitable for firemen and the righteous. Here’s how the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Hoboken, New Jersey went yesterday:
People urinating from rooftops. TVs and bottles thrown from windows. More than 80 injuries, and reports of at least one couple having sex in plain view. Public Safety Director Bill Bergin said today that he’s had it: He wants to cancel the parade. “It’s just gotten out of hand. Somebody someday is going to get killed, and I want to stop it before that” he said. Bergin said he respects the St. Patrick’s Day Parade tradition — his father, in fact, was once honored at the annual event — but that the day is no longer about that. “On Washingtion Street, bottles were thrown onto the people below. A girl and a guy were performing sex in a window when the parade was going by. One person spit in the face of a fireman. There were young, young girls that were blind drunk standing in the middle of the streets, so drunk that they didn’t know where they were,” he said.
Remember this story when the wingnuts publish their annual cries of outrage about gay pride.
