We’ll Have a Gay Old … Monument

Obama’s latest sop to the Rainbow Mafia.

It appears that the Obama administration is working around the clock to name the location of the 1979 Stonewall Inn riot as the nation’s first national monument dedicated to the Rainbow Mafia. Barack Obama’s interior secretary and National Parks Service director are hosting a public hearing on the proposal May 9 — weeks before Obama wants to cement his “LGBT” legacy by declaring he was the first president to designate a monument to the homosexual-rights movement. He doesn’t have much time. The Left declared June LGBT Pride Month because it marks the June 28 anniversary of the time police raided the dive bar and the enforcement action sparked a riot. Choosing a brand new NPS location isn’t easy, as the site sits at least partially on private property in a dense urban area. But Obama isn’t going to let that tie him down — or any unexpected pushback during the upcoming public hearing. He’s got a legacy to solidify, and LGBT Pride Month only comes once a year.

Meanwhile, there are monuments that are worthy of recognition and protection, like the battles of World War II or locations where Americans actually struggled for the civil rights secured by the Constitution.
