(CNSNews.com) - At a White House reception held Friday evening in honor of Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender Pride month, President Barack Obama celebrated a 1969 anti-police riot that started in what the New York Times reports was an illegal Mafia-owned bar for transvestites.
Now, each June since I took office, we have gathered to pay tribute to the generations of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans who devoted their lives to our most basic of ideals--equality not just for some, but for all, Obama said.
Together weve marked major milestones like the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, when a group of brave citizens held their ground against brutal discrimination, said Obama. Together, weve honored courageous pioneers who, decades ago, came out and spoke out; who challenged unjust laws and destructive prejudices. Together, weve stood resolute; unwavering in our commitment to advance this movement and to build a more perfect union.
The Stonewall Riot that president Obama referred to started when police raided a New York City saloon called the Stonewall Inn that catered to transvestites. In a 2010 obituary for Seymour Pine, the police inspector who led the raid, the New York Times reported the basic facts of the incident, describing the inn as "an illegal club frequented by cross-dressers."
The club, on Christopher Street near Seventh Avenue South, was owned by members of the Mafia, the Times reported. Inspector Pine later said he conducted the raid on orders from superiors.
About 200 people were inside, said the Times. When the officers ordered them to line up and show identification, some refused. Several transvestites refused to submit to anatomical inspections. Word of the raid filtered into the street, and soon hundreds of protesters gathered outside, shouting gay power and calling the police pigs.
The turning point came when a lesbian fought with officers as she was pushed into a patrol car, said the Times. The crowd rushed the officers, who retreated into the club. Several people ripped out a parking meter and used it as a battering ram; others tried to set fire to the club. It took police reinforcements an hour and a half to clear the street.
It was the start of several nights of rioting, during which the police used force to disperse crowds that sometimes numbered in the thousands, said the Times. Fewer than three dozen protesters were arrested, but hundreds were detained and released.
At Friday's White House reception, Obama predicted the LGBT movement would achieve the additional goals it seeks--including waht he called "marriage equality"--because of what he perceives as their persuasiveness and the example they set.
"Well get there because of every man and woman and activist and ally who is moving us forward by the force of their moral arguments, but more importantly, by the force of their example," said Obama.
Mob run speakeasy turned into a historic landmark by a bunch of drama queens.
Maybe I’m crazy...but I can’t imagine many mainstream people of the near left, not to mention the right...voting for this guy again.
Besides blacks and some hispanics, who will support four more years of high unemployment, increased moral decadence, and bowing and scraping to foreign leaders? This guy makes Jimmy Carter look good.
My sense is that Romney will win in an historic landslide.
How nice, we’re being lead by Captain Idiot.
Exactly, and Carter cost our country dearly but I don't believe he can hold a candle to Obama and what the turkey has cost our country already.
Will Barack Hussein Obama talk of his transvestite nanny?
But homos are a force for lawlessness and chaos, and value the ability to engage in their perversion above any kind of domestic tranquility.
Just think what he is doing that we don’t know about? MOST HORRIBLE ADMINISTRATION IN HISTORY.
So you think the Soros owned vote counting company in Spain that will be counting OUR VOTES will allow little barry bastard commie to be removed via the ballot box?
The enemies of United States must laugh every time they hear Obama’s name.
Hispanic Catholics may not vote for him.
This really isn’t a satire article, is it?
Holder has his “People,” Zero has his.
Any other president and I’d say probably but not this pResident.
I remember that riot. Boy, the purses and wigs were flying !
Nice musing but inaccurate
Latinos will vote against what they view as the white power structure
We may pull off a third
What few Charismatic Latinos..there are....second largest group...are more likely to vote what is perceived socially conservative than are Catholic Latinos....mimicking the general population
Catholic Latinos will vote like National Baptist blacks do...against their dogma in favor of pandering
His beloved Turdi, who fed him dog that hesheit got from her/his homo butcher boyfriend?

So much Biblical scripture the last couple days, Ive been looking closely at II Peter, Chapter 3 serves as warning to we as individuals, and nations as a whole. This nation continues to shake its collective fist in God’s Face, and its being led by the liberal churches who twist scripture to meet abominable practices (the murder of the unborn, sodomy, etc.) they support, and by this wretched man in the White House and his allies (and I say this with humility and a repentant heart, knowing the sinner I am, saved from hell by Jesusdeath on the cross for me, and given eternal life by His Resurrection from the dead).
I meant to add that God will not be mocked. We see some of His righteous vengeance. Without national repentance (including within our individual hearts, mine included), we will see more of his righteous and just vengeance. We don’t know when the most awesome display of His vengeance might be, for His timing is perfect, and beyond our reasoning. Nor, do we know how He will make this nation see that He is not mocked.
