New York City to unveil largest
rainbow pride flag in city’s history

Original Article

Let your freak flag fly, New York! New York is coming out in a larger-than-life way this Pride Month, unveiling the biggest pride flag in the city’s history on Friday. But it won’t be a traditional cloth flag. Instead, the normally gray, concrete steps at Roosevelt Island’s Four Freedoms Park will be painted to resemble the iconic rainbow symbol for the gay rights movement. The fitting hashtag: #AscendWithPride. The location of the massive 12-foot-by-100-foot display of equality is no coincidence either. Four Freedoms State Park was established as a memorial to Franklin D. Roosevelt

Comments:

So many historic firsts in a city with no social problems. Do they discuss Eleanor Roosevelt's long-time female companion? For curious children, there's even a "pop-up explainer" (I'm afraid to ask) that will tell them all about this healthy lifestyle.

Musings while on hold... What exactly are they so proud of? Can we please have at least one day when we don't have to hear about their pride or their goofy flag? Why do they call themselves "gay" when they always are so angry?

An all-brown flag would be more appropriate, symbolic of sodomy.

The “iconic rainbow” is NOT the symbol for the deviant homosexual movement. It is the symbol of God’s mercy and his promises. Agree with #1 - what exactly are they proud of? Using the lower digestive tract as a sex organ?

Since it's no longer a felony or against the law to urinate in public in New York, those steps would make a mighty fine place to relieve oneself! The gates to the Mayors residence or the steps at city hall would be two more alternatives!

From wikipedia: we understood that we had a work of art, and the forces that represent the artistic and cultural integrity of the project are concerned about preserving that work. The purity and integrity of the Kahn memorial is what made it so stunning.....now is will become a beacon for sodomy and immoral acts....welcome to the new America....what aggravates me is those crazies stole God's symbol for their flag....

I had to laugh that it was being done at the FDR memorial on Roosevelt Island because of the background of its building. It's an ugly, 1960s era design built 40 years too late that got bulled through by the Roosevelt Foundation trustees for their own egotistical reasons and special parties. (FDR has a perfectly good memorial, large site, and library run by the National Park Service and National Archives not far away in Hyde Park NY but that wasn't enough for them). The fact of the matter is that the entire memorial allee of trees blocks the sight lines south of RI down the East River and ends in a giant granite wall with its grotesque giant head of FDR. So personally it being defaced by the rainbow colors the LGBTQXYZ crowd co-opted matters not.

If they were truly interested in equality, they wouldn't hide themselves in clubs and bars away from the mainstream. It's not about equality as much as it is about identity and the politics of identity. They've been annexed and exploited by the Left for political reasons.

Hartford, Conn. — Three Connecticut girls who participate on high school track teams have filed a federal discrimination complaint against a statewide policy on transgender athletes, saying it has cost them top finishes in competitions and possibly college scholarships. The conservative Christian law firm Alliance Defending Freedom filed the complaint on behalf of the girls Monday with the U.S. Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights. It seeks an investigation and actions to make competitions fair. The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference governs high school sports in the state. It says its policy follows a state anti-discrimination law requiring students to be treated

Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder roared up to Cannes Lions in his $180 million yacht as ad sources speculated he’s in town to find a title sponsor for the team’s new stadium. Snyder, worth an estimated $2.2 billion, hopes to build a new facility at the site of RFK Stadium—the team’s historic former home—in DC. He has reportedly been working with congressional Republicans and the Trump administration to include language in a new federal spending bill that would help pave the way for the new stadium.

Life outside the White House has been sweet for former President Barack Obama, with perhaps the most difficult thing being the one he does best: politics. Mr. Obama is navigating a landscape in which he must fit his obvious relish for the celebrity lifestyle with an unwritten code of conduct for past chief executives, a world that is his for the taking yet tradition dictates he do so incrementally. It’s a political scene where players may covet his endorsement or desire his invisibility.

Some of the 15 people got write-ups placed in their security files at the department, according to a letter sent to Sen. Chuck Grassley.
