NYC St Pat's chair lives up to the parade's history of hate...

John Dunleavy, current chair of the St Patrick's Day Parade committee, which has a long history of cravenly catering to what they perceive to be the most intolerant parts of the Irish-American demographic, has compared gays to war criminals and sociopaths:

"If an Israeli group wants to march in New York, do you allow neo-Nazis into their parade? If African-Americans are marching in Harlem, do they have to let the Ku Klux Klan into their parade?"

The stupid son-of-a-bitch. Way to go, Jack.

The only time I ever went to the St. Patrick's Day Parade was when I volunteered as a legal observer for ILGO. It was sickening to see the hostile, mostly drunk, paradegoers hurling their invective (along with spittle and the like) at the Gay and Lesbian folks who simply wanted to join in the celebration of common heritage. The ILGO after-party was a real blast (even for a straight Jewish boy like me).
