Supposedly Tough-On-Crime Rudy Giuliani Repeatedly Praised Veterans Of Sex Perverts/Sodomite Riot Against NYC Cops
Oh, you got to have friends,
the feeling’s oh so strong.
You got to have friends
to make that day last long.
— From the song “Friends.”
By John Lofton, Editor
Well, amen! We do, indeed, have to have friends. We are social creatures; no man is an island. And our friends reveal a lot about who we are.
Speaking of which, you should know that when Rudy Giuliani was Mayor of New York City, he repeatedly honored and posed for photographs with members of an organization called “STONEWALL Veterans Association” (SVA). For example, in a “Dear Friends” letter to this group dated June 25, 2002, Giuliani extended his “warmest regards” to them on the occasion of the 33rd anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion which he called “a triumph at a time when the struggle for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Rights was beginning.” Hailing the SVA for having “preserved the spirit of the original rebellion” (an allusion to our War For Independence), Giuliani praised this group for its educational program which, he said, helps others to learn about “the cause, the history and to fight prejudice.” To read much more about Giuliani and his relations with the “SVA” click here.
Well, now, dear reader, allow me, please, to help educate you re: what really happened at the “Stonewall Inn” in New York City in 1969. Let’s start with the “Inn” itself and then move on to how some of Giuliani’s “friends” behaved during their “rebellion.”
A story in the liberal “Denver Post” newspaper (6/27/99) says this “Inn” was a place which operated “thanks to payoffs to the police and the Mafia.” A story in the liberal “Los Angeles Times” (6/26/96) refers to “Stonewall” as a place that was “a seedy, Mafia-controlled hangout for drag queens.” And a piece in the liberal “Newsday” newspaper (6/27/94) says it was the scene of “a revolt by people on the fringes of even the gay community…a sleazy Mafia bar [whose] patrons were the queerest, raggediest, grungiest of the gays.”
In his well-documented book “Stonewall” (Dutton, 1993), the pro-homosexual Martin Duberman tells how an epidemic of hepatitis among sodomite men was blamed on “Stonewall” because there was no running water behind the bar and used glasses were simply run through stagnant vats of water, then re-used.
Duberman also reveals how middle-aged men “cruised” in “Stonewall” looking for underage male prostitutes. He quotes one homosexual activist as saying the bar was a haven for so-called “chicken hawks,” adult males who coveted underage boys. Another homosexual activist says “Stonewall” was “a real dive, an awful, sleazy place set up by the Mob for hustlers, ‘chickens’ to be bought by older people.” Duberman tells how the doorman at “Stonewall” was accused of “purveying drugs and young flesh there” and how he was involved in taking payoffs from the Mafia and New York cops.
When the police raided “Stonewall” about 1:20 am on June 28, 1969, the bar was full of male whores and drugged and drunken “drag queens” (men wearing womens’ clothes). A cop shoved one of the patrons telling her (?) to keep moving. She (?) started swinging at the cop. As Duberman tells it:
“By now the crowd had swelled to a mob, and people were picking up and throwing whatever loose objects were at hand —- coins, bottles, cans, bricks from a nearby construction site. Someone even picked up dog s—- from the street and threw it in the cops direction.” Cops had to dodge flying glass. One was hit near the eye with a shard of glass causing blood to spurt out. A beer can bounced off another cop’s head. And a man Duberman describes as “a wild Puerto Rican queen” verbally threatened to rape a male cop he believed to be of Irish ancestry.
When the police retreated inside the bar and barricaded the door, according to Duberman, “an arm reached through a shattered window, squirted more lighter fluid into the room, and then threw in another lit match. This time the match caught, and there was a whoosh of flame.” Just then, police reinforcements arrived and saved their colleagues inside from being burned to death. Four cops were wounded in this riot. Some suffered human bites.
So, there you have it. Those are some “friends,” Mr. Giuliani has, huh? — some “triumph,” as he calls it — some “spirit of rebellion” to preserve,right? No. Rudy Giuliani is morally unfit to be President of the United States. He shouldn’t even be allowed to visit the White House.
A footnote: During the Clinton Administration, the “Stonewall Inn” was added to the official U.S. Government “National Register Of Historic Places.” Announcing this fact, Clinton’s Assistant Secretary Of The Interior John Berry, an open and admitted homosexual, said, standing in front of this “Inn” (6/21/99): “In the course of our history, the tree of liberty has always grown stronger by adding rings of rights….On this spot on June 28, 1969, a new ring of freedom (sic, no sick!) was called into being by proud men and women who said ‘No more!’ —- ‘No’ to prejudice, no to intolerance, no to abuse and hate.
“In doing, so they joined hands through history with those in 1773, who left their taverns and began another revolution by throwing tea in the harbor of Boston. For the bravery of this small group here at Stonewall inspired the nation, and called freedom loving people into action, laying the cornerstone of the gay and lesbian civil rights movement…..Maybe it is the heat of summer that puts fire in the belly for freedom. For it was the heat of Philadelphia that forged the Declaration of Independence….And it was the heat of a summer’s night here at Stonewall that led to the creation of a new civil rights movement for America.”
A footnote to this footnote: I seriously doubt that those who visited taverns in colonial times would identify with the rioters at the “Stonewall Inn” since homosexual sodomy in all 13 original colonies was a capital crime.
