Thanks to Patrick (Gryphmon) for the heads up on this outrageous example of the LiberalDemocrat ideology run amok.
SF Supervisors Reject WWII Battleship – NBC11.com
In turning away the Iowa, supervisors cited opposition to the war in Iraq, the treatment of gay and lesbians in the service and the city’s reputation for embracing the peace movement.
Fine, let the city suffer in its own liberal martyrdom. Patrick says…. Boycott San Francisco!!
Boycott San Fran — The Iowa – Gryphmon.com
Look, the military and I have obvious deep disagreements. But the fact is that it’s not the pacifists, or even the gay activists, who have provided freedom for Americans, and yes, even Gay Americans. It was those that were willing to die to protect it. The means they get my respect. (Of course, I still reserve the right to bitch). Hell, I might even have had relatives serve on the Iowa, like my great Uncle Cliffy, a Marine in WWII.
So this incident, a part of Navy history, and a part of our gay history, is not welcome in San Francisco. Besides the slap at the military, its a slap at the gay community as well. If we don’t make sure that our own history is remembered, both the good and the bad, its going to disappear.
For once, Patrick and I agree wholeheartedly. This is a cheap publicity stunt by ignorant liberal supervisors who have no clue about the world outside the Bay. I would be more than happy to spend my hard-earned money in a city like San Diego which celebrates our military men and women, not insults them.
Boycott San Francisco!
