All they wanted was a simple permit to gather in the park but “straight pride” is too controversial a subject for Modesto, California. The city required a substantial insurance policy before they would allow the event. Since they couldn’t get permission to use a town park, straights decided to legally gather on the sidewalk instead.
The heteros were far outnumbered by rainbow flag waving protesters, who couldn’t stand to see such a shocking display of heterosexual pride. The gender confused liberals were angry and intimidating, but there were so many police on hand that at least they weren’t violent.
Free speech in liberal California is a one sided proposition. “This is an example of free speech in our country. It’s a one-way street. They want free speech but they don’t want to give us free speech,” straight pride organizer Don Grundmann tells reporters, over the shouts of angry protesters.
Heterosexuals took to McHenry street on Saturday afternoon in defiance of the city’s decision not to grant them an event permit. Police were ready. On foot, bicycle and horse, the cops were expecting trouble and reportedly “on high alert.”
The unwelcome “breeders” were quickly surrounded by a large crowd of rainbow types who were “holding signs, making noise and speaking out against straight pride event organizer Don Grundmann.”
The rainbow mafia had gathered in nearby Enslen Park park to prepare ahead of time. While they were getting ready, they held their own LGBTQ pride rally, without a permit, but nobody raised an eyebrow about that.
“I wanted to come out here and be peaceful and rally with a bunch of peach of rainbow colors and have a great day,” quipped Michelle Riddle.
They planned from the beginning to outnumber the straights. “Apathy and not confronting fascists when they come out into the society and public space in our communities, it makes it unsafe for queer people, people of color,” Sabine Tischler sneers. Nobody asked “it” why heterosexuality is so dangerous.
As Grundmann pointed out, they weren’t a threat to anybody, they were just there to “defend the foundation of life.” The queers claim to be afraid, yet “they want to shut us down with violence, they want to threaten us with violence that they’ll hurt us,” Grundmann relates. He isn’t afraid though. “We aren’t going to be intimidated,” he added.
Mimsey Ferar was there, protesting against straight pride. She was frightened of the heteros “I think people are able to express their frustrations and fears and just upsetness with what’s going on.” It is amazing to believe that these people have no idea how they got here in the first place. If that kind of thinking were to take over, the problem will solve itself in a generation.
