I am just blown away at the Stonewall being named a national monument. Wow! How sensational is that!
Has anyone noticed that the cable news networks have almost completely ignored this development. Yea, I know the Brexit affair has sucked all of the air out of the room, but ignoring this development is ridiculous.
I can’t wait to hear what all of the nation’s wingnuts have to offer. Oh, it’s comin’ soon, that I can tell ya (as Herr D. would say). I can just feel the earth trembling as I write this post. I hope someone asks for Bill Donahue’s and Herr Drumpfenfuherer’s input soon. I need a hearty laugh.
Watch the video from the White House. In it, Prez. Obama offers a most righteous narrative. It’s excellent.
“I’m designating the Stonewall National Monument as the newest addition to America’s National Park System. Stonewall will be our first national monument to tell the story of the struggle for LGBT rights. I believe our national parks should reflect the full story of our country, the richness and diversity and uniquely American spirit that has always defined us. That we are stronger together. That out of many, we are one.”
