Democrats choose drag queens over a saint



The New York Post is rightly upset that New York City will honor as the most important women in its 400-year history a couple of drag queens over the patron saint of immigrants.

The mayor's wife controls the panel that made the decision. Taxpayers will spend $5 million on this project.

Pardon my mirth but once again Democrats show that they think men are better at being women than women are.

Instead of honoring Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini -- the patron saint of immigrants to America -- the Democrats at City Hall are honoring two men and five women as the top seven women in the history of New York City.

Saint Frances was born in northern Italy. She became a nun and moved to America to tend the needs of Italian immigrants. She became a citizen at 59 in 1909. She died in 1917 and was canonized on July 7, 1946.

What a remarkable inspiration she is a century later. Democrats could not care less.

They keep telling us how much immigrants mean to the country. Well, here is a women who came to America and reached the heights. Literally. No mortal can go higher than a saint.

But Democrats passed her over in favor of seven others, including Marsha P. Johnson, a transgender activist involved in the Stonewall riots in 1969, and "LGBTQ advocate Sylvia Rivera, who was born Jose and described herself as a drag queen," according to the Post.

Gay votes and donations matter more.

Democrats are a fickle party.

A century ago, Democrat leaders in the 11 Confederate states erected statues to the leaders of that rebellion. The purpose was to put people of one race in their place at the back of the bus.

Now the tables are turned. The Democrat pecking order has flipped.

To those at the top of the Democrat list today, I offer this advice: Never trust a Democrat.

Look at how Democrats courted and discarded Catholics like Saint Frances. What makes people of color or LGBTQ think they will be spared that fate?

Democrats were once the party of the working class. Now they call the working class deplorable.

The party is raising statues to today's heroes. Later, they will raze the same statuary to appease some other group. That is how the party operates. They recruit groups, do a little for them, and then abandon them except on Election Day.

The easiest prediction in politics is that Democrats eventually will turn their back on gay men in favor of some other group in the Democrat quest for power.

  2. Lee Rogers on KGO radio SF said, "If you fall in love with a politician, he will break your heart every time. Especially true for liberals.

  4. The 2020 election comes right after the 2020 Summer Olympics, which will feature trans athletes in women’s sports. The reaction might be enough to tip one more state to Trump.

  5. I am a big fan, but this is not your best work. *** "...Confederate states erected statues to the leaders of that rebellion. The purpose was to put people in one race in their place at the back of the bus." If this is true, then why did Union states erect statues? And do you believe the statues to General Sherman - who deliberately targeted civilians for starvation, rape and murder - were built to emphasize that mentality (we can do as we please because we are more powerful) *** Or is it possible that they - confederate & union states - had other motives?

  6. General Sherman - who deliberately targeted civilians for starvation, rape and murder

    You got a link for that? Because I majored in history and that's the first time I've heard that claim.

    Sherman's March to the Sea was done to break the will of the Confederacy. Sherman knew that the Union couldn't win just by killing Confederate soldiers because the South would just send more troops to replace them. But the orders he gave his soldiers were specific and they did not include rape and murder.

    I'm not saying it didn't happen, I'm saying he didn't order it.

  7. Big D, I’m hard pressed to come up with any other “disenfranchised” groups right now besides kids and animals. The former wouldn’t be a big stretch because EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM have been affected by the “rash” of school shootings in this country. They’ll push for 12 but will settle for 15. Never mind that’s taking about 9 years longer right now (personal observation) for kids to grow up, due to LibCommie fascination with Perpetual Adolescence. So there’s that. Otherwise, I gotta go with animals. And while it is true that I have seen pet owners who were less smart than their charges, I’m pretty sure they couldn’t take and pass a basic citizenship test unless it was totally rigged. Hmmm. On second thought, now I’m worried...

  8. I read the link. The democrats can’t help but pander to everyone. Six of the seven being honored are black or Hispanic. One is white. 400 years of history and this is the result? Suuuuuuuuure.

    1. Identity politics works best when the party is out of power. All your promises are conditional - you don't have to pay off unless you win.

      But when you win, they all start squabbling over how to divide the pie. The pie is always smaller than expected, and everybody thinks their piece is too small and somebody else's is too big. Then the revolutionaries start turning on each other.

      The least bloody revolutions are the ones where a strongman emerges early and takes control. The worst ones are the ones with multiple factions and everybody killing everybody.

  9. Don't expect much from a black lesbo and you won't be disappointed.
    get over it. They named a boulevard for Cabrini in Manhattan. Enough!
    Now time to change the erm 'drag racing.'

  10. When you define deviancy down far enough, you are left with Democrats.

  11. The gay population is what, 4%? Gays don't reproduce easily. With that small and stagnant population, they'll be abandoned sooner than later.

    Sad.
