Your torrent of angry calls and emails did it!! Governor Deval Patrick, avowed "ally" of the homosexual movement, abruptly backed down and stayed away from the homosexual movement's annual hardcore "Youth Pride" event. Do not underestimate the power of outraged citizens armed with a single purpose -- even when things look bleak. Remember, this is the place where the American Revolution began.
Right...But the thing is...the governor wasn't even planning on being there. How do I know this, read this article in BayWindows which was put out last week around the same time Massresistance claims that the Governor was still attending:
“The theme of this year [Youth Pride] is ‘Make a statement,’ so every year we like to give awards based on the theme,” said Lydon. “GLSEN [is receiving the award] for not making a statement on Day of Silence but also making a bold statement at the same time, Amanda Palmer for her musical statement and her crazy fashion statements … and we’re giving Deval the award for his political statement.”
She said Patrick himself would not be attending Youth Pride, and she said organizers were uncertain about whether Palmer would accept her award in person.
My my my, I would guess that BayWindow's deadline is the latest, Wednesday night (possibly earlier), so even they knew that the Governor wasn't going to attend however, Massresistance just leads their lemmings to believe that he didn't attend because of them. What a crock! although not surprising. They would probably take credit for the sun rising and falling everyday.
I can't wait to see how they spin the inaction on the bills they supposedly submitted to the Legislature. I predict none of them will see the light of day but surely Massresistance will somehow list them as a success.
