Apparently not all gays are equal in the gay lobby. A group of libertarian gays who support open carry gun rights found this out when they showed up at the Olympia, Wash., gay rights parade last week and were denied the right to participate.
Gay rights are all about the empowerment, aren’t they? Well, it appears that there are some gays that the gay lobby isn’t too happy with, because the gun-toting libertarian gays were told to take a hike and weren’t allowed to participate in this year’s festivities.
The libertarian group has been part of the gay pride event in the past; but as the event neared, the group inquired about their participation and were told that they would not be allowed to be a part of it this year. And they were denied via a cowardly voicemail, to boot.
The group was told by event organizers that they were “banned.” “Your booth and your participation is hereby banned from Capital City Pride,” the libertarians were told via a voicemail obtained by TheBlaze.
And the voicemail, sent by Capital City Pride chairwoman Anna Schlecht, got more explicit from there.
“By the power vested in me, as the chair, you are banned and you will never have a booth as long as I’m involved in Capital City Pride,” the parade chief said. “Don’t bother calling back. I’m very frustrated. I know y’all have a political agenda.”
Suddenly “political agendas” are banned at a gay pride event? It’s all political, isn’t it?
Not all gay parades denied Second Amendment supporters who wanted to help support gay rights.
Seattle’s gay pride event did allow the open carry supporters to join the event.
In fact, the Seattle folks were welcomed with open arms–something that even surprised the Second Amendment advocates.
“We had prepared ourselves for the worst — to be yelled at, screamed at, called names, taunted, and circled. But what we didn’t expect, was how welcoming everybody would be at Seattle Pride,” one of the activists told TheBlaze.
