Organizer cancels gay pride parade in Wausau (WI)
WQOW Eau Claire ^ | Jun. 21, 2013

Posted on 06/21/2013 9:00:21 AM PDT by Sopater

WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) - The organizer of what would have been Wausau's first gay pride parade has cancelled it, saying he has experienced a wave of ugliness in the community.

Daxx Bouvier told Daily Herald Media (http://wdhne.ws/12ZwKye ) that he cancelled Saturday's parade after negative comments from a City Council member and in articles in local media.

Bouvier says people who had planned to be in the parade told him they were concerned about their safety.

City Council member Dave Nutting said at meeting earlier this month that people should boycott the parade or, if they went, turn their backs on "deviant-behaving individuals."

Bouvier lives in California but owns a home in Wausau. He says he has no further plans to organize gay pride events in the city.

Only America tolerates the gays. Why is that?

never understood either why they have parades where they act like freaks, have flags and stickers or tell people what they like sexually.

They used to say when they wanted civil unions that it was their private business and then they said they wanted more than don’t ask which gave them privacy.

they’re hypocrites and liars who are obsessed with hatred and intolerance

I will never forget being trapped in the gay parade on the way back from the airport in a car with my mother - it was unimaginably grotesque, and I’m speaking as a person who works in the arts and has has had close relationships with numerous gay artists my entire adult life. The men in the parade were also openly aggressive and belligerent toward my 80 year old mother...these are people consumed with hatred.

every word is nail on the head.

These people come from the north east and CA think they have their purpose in life to make us accept them, they leave their cess pit states and then act all victim when we don’t go along with their way of thinking.
They live in a bubble and once they leave that bubble they call us stupid and racist because how dare us little ones who are not from there think differently

forgot to mention but living here I get to meet many form those areas and they just think that their view is the only view, that we have to accept them and they are always right and I;m sick of hearing how they did it back in their state.

Then puss off as we do it differently here.

If queers wanted their sham marriage then why do they move to states which do not have it?

Yeah right. He cancelled because he couldn't get any sponsors and wasn't going to make any money off the deal.

We should do that... it’s soooooo dramatic... We could schedule a Tea Party then cancel it at the last minute saying we’re afraid the ‘gay lobby’ will hurt our children.

Here’s my question to this guy - how many gays have been ‘hurt’ by conservatives in the last ten years? And yeah, we’d know it because IF ONE GAY person was hurt it would make the newspapers.

Some freepers a few years back were beat up by union goons - newspapers didn’t cover it.

Lots of people on our side are ‘targeted’ and it never makes the news...

...you know why :) This isn’t a war they can ever win, they just think they can - the problem is that the only way they can perpetuate “acceptance” is to constantly brainwash the younger generation and *eliminate* religious beliefs. Once the young grow up and have kids many become more conservative, so the effort must be perpetual (same goes for Democrats in general). The thing is, at some point, the only way for them to “advance” is to become ever more brazen and escalate the persecution. At which point any moral person will decide enough is enough.

It’s going to continue to get worse, our country can only be great again when led by moral people. A constitution isn’t enough. For that to happen, I’m saddened by what must happen first.

That said, look at the Democrat Party. It is actually very weak. Ultimately, they’re trying to pander to diverse political identities, such as the gay activists, atheists and Muslims. Talk about a house built on sand. That mix isn’t sustainable. The next decade is going to be remarkable.

I wish I’d have known ahead of time so I, too, could’ve added my 2 cents to the comments....

If the alphabet agencies want to target someone, they should be looking at the mental deficient liberals/socialists/communists who have No grasp on reality.

Who do you think those alphabet agencies have been hiring for the last 20 years???

Thank God. I was NOT looking forward to seeing how bad it was going to be. A decent parade - even if it was a pride parade - would have been no big deal here in town. We even have a gay bar downtown and no safety issues that I’m aware of - it’s a pretty accepting community. The problem came when he WANTED to make it “over the top” with drag shows, and only God knows what else... What plays in California does NOT play here in the Dairyland.

Here’s the scoop on the TRUTH from one of my daughters who has a friend in that community here...

Apparently, a bunch of people here in Wausau will still be walking — not even the LGBT community here in Wausau wanted ANYTHING to do with this guy as he lied about several things, and was PLANNING on causing a big stir ON PURPOSE. I support their right to march as it is the law, and freedom of speech and assembly and all, and I’m VERY glad the community here in Wausau told Mr. California to get the heck out! We do just fine here, and we do not NEED someone coming here from CA to tell us how “wrong” we all are.

The next time someone brings up how primates engage in “homosexuality” be sure to point out that there’s nothing “pleasant” for the male chimp that’s the object of the other’s “affections”... It’s RAPE and dominance - not pleasure that they are engaging in.

Another thing I’ve mentioned that seems to set them into a frenzy of cognitive dissonance is explaining that Chimpanzees also murder infants by bashing their skulls on rocks and such. Ask them if we should be OK with that behavior too, since after all, we’re only animals...

WAY TO GO, WAUSAU! We need much, much, much more of this! Speaking out "harhly" and exhibiting "waves of ugliness" is the ticket! One person speaking out isn't enough - silence means acquiescence! (well, not according to the pervs at the DOJ but that's another story). It is officially the time to start pushing back - vocally, loudly, non-weasel-word-ly, clearly, insistently, courageously, sharply - and en masse! This is very cheering news.

if only negative comments worked on them more often.

People need to try negative comments more often - and very loudly, with fighting spirit!

What’s it like due to immigration? Is it illegal Mexicans or “refugee” Somalis or something else?

Because deep in their hearts they are ashamed, becuase what they do and the desires they culture are shameful. So in their efforts to silence and stifle their shame and guilt, they invent “pride” in their perversions.

It will never work.

And in public bathrooms.

And in the bushes in parks.

And in open at beaches.

And in “gay” bath houses.

And on the street in “Gay Pride” parades.

And in Thailand and the Philippines with boys.

etcetcetc

If they kept it in their bedrooms in private no one would know or care. But they make it public.

Hmong.

From the Atlantic monthly, April, 1994
“”The 1980 U.S. Census found Wausau to be the most ethnically homogeneous city in the nation, with less than one percent of the population other than white.””

“”It all began simply enough, when a few churches and individuals in Wausau, Wisconsin, decided to resettle some Southeast Asian refugees during the late 1970s. To most residents, it seemed like a nice thing to do. Nobody meant to plant the seeds for a social transformation. But this small and private charitable gesture inadvertently set into motion events that many residents today feel are spinning out of control. Wausau—the county seat of the nation’s champion milk-producing county—has learned that once the influx starts, there’s little chance to stop it. Regardless of how many newcomers failed to find jobs in this north-central Wisconsin city of 37,500, or how abraded the social fabric became, the immigrant population just kept growing.
In little more than a decade the immigrant families’ children have come to make up almost a quarter of the elementary schools’ enrollment, crowding facilities past their limits—and there’s no peak in sight.””

I never would have guessed Hmong. I will read the article later. If ALL welfare were stopped (which has to happen), many immigrant propblems would be solved rather quickly. Many would self deport, and only those who wanted to be self reliant would come here. Private organizations should help those who need help, not goverment.

“...until immigration turned it into something else.”

I was born there and still have relatives living there.

It’s not the same Wausau I remembered. It’s become a very Balkanized city - the upper middle and upper class white collar professionals, the blue collar workers and the Hmong.

There is not a great deal of interaction between these three groups.
