Okay here we go again….another “celebration” for these kind of people.
Is this ever going to stop? Celebrations for gays, lesbions, blacks , mooselums does it ever end??? If KSAL.link announced a celebration for “White” folks the ACLU would come down on them and sue their butts off!!! This country is becoming a frickin joke to other countries around the world. We bend over backwards to “please” this groups of people and for what? So they can feel needed? Awwwww isnt that just honkey dorey!!!!

Pride in what,? high incidents of spousal abuse, continued unabated attacks on those that don’t agree with their lifestyle, flaunting their lifestyle on families that don’t like the “lifestyle”. Celebrate that your not being thrown off a building like in Muslim countries. Your day is coming soon. So go ahead and celebrate.
