Montgomery PRIDE Weekend Protest

(Before It's News)

The SPLC has a post up about our little impromptu counter-demonstration at the Montgomery PRIDE Weekend festival last month:

“The League of the South (LOS), a Neo-Confederate hate group, hosted its annual conference on June 24th and 25th at their headquarters in Wetumpka, Alabama. While the annual conference this year was largely uneventful, a non-League event in downtown Montgomery provided an interesting window into the forces at play between the leadership and their base. …

The Sunday PRIDE Rally began largely without incident; a few protesters were present with a large cross and signs quoting scripture, but the interactions between those participants and protesters were largely respectful.

The peace was broken when the protesters were joined by a group of about a dozen younger League of the South members carrying signs emblazoned with the League of the South’s website. …

The question then becomes whether Hill knowingly allowed his membership to attend this protest or if he was unable to rein in the impulsiveness of radical members like Walls and Winkler.”

This was actually my idea.

The League of the South was unaware of the Montgomery PRIDE Weekend events until after our annual conference had wrapped up on Saturday. I had just stepped out of the shower after our demonstration when I heard on the local news that there was a gay pride festival going on all weekend in Montgomery. A drag queen was being interviewed who was scheduled to speak at the State Capitol the following morning.

Obviously, if we had known beforehand that the SPLC was spearheading a massive gay pride festival in Montgomery, and that a drag queen was going to lead a parade of sodomites in a march on our State Capitol, we would have chosen to protest that instead of holding another roadside demonstration in Wetumpka. Instead of letting the Montgomery PRIDE Weekend rally go unopposed (there were two Christians there opposing it from a local church), we decided to show up and protest it after kayaking down the Coosa River earlier that morning. As for our summer attire, it proves nothing more than we had spent the weekend camping out and adjusted our schedule to oppose an event on short notice.

Note: BTW, no one cares that a tattoo artist gave a teenager a tramp stamp.
