31 August 2013. Gay Protest Outside St Nick’s Cathedral in San Francisco… What a Buncha Maroons!

00 St Nicholas Cathedral. San Francisco CA. 31.08.13

Read this. This was the DUMBEST thing that the organised gays could’ve done. Well, there WAS one dumber thing… actually attacking the building or clergy… thank God, that didn’t happen. No one was hurt and no property was damaged. This was STOOPID in the extreme. One of my contacts in the Bay Area told me that some gay bloggers spread dezinformatsiya about the Russian law. The law forbids the spread of information about homosexuality to minors and the suborning of minors by adults… it doesn’t outlaw homosexuality, nor is it a precursor to such. Irresponsible people did imply that, leading to a nasty contretemps at St Nick’s last Sunday. This only strengthened the hands of the radicals on both sides, which means that the water will be muddied for quite some time. Both sides will wrap themselves up in the robes of the “oppressed”, which means that any rational discussion will go out the window. Mind you, the radicals don’t represent the majority on either side, but they’ve gained control of the bully pulpit. It’ll be hellish to get them out (on both sides). It reminds me of a bitter anecdote from the Sov times:

Somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean, two submarines, Soviet and American, come to the surface. The Soviet one is old and rusty; the American one is new and shiny. On the Soviet one, the crew lounges about without any order, and a drunken captain yells at them, “Who threw a valenok on the control board? I’m asking you, who threw a valenok on the control board?!” From the American submarine, a shaved, sober, and well-dressed captain, noted sarcastically, “You know, folks, in America…” The Russian captain interrupted him, screaming, “America? America??! There’s none of your fucking America any more!” (Turns back to the crew) “Who threw a valenok onto the control board?!”

With this pointless demonstration, they’ve thrown a valenok on the control board. God do help us all…
