MLB to honour gay pioneer
Glenn Burke at all-star game

Guardian [UK], by Amanda Holpuch

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 7/15/2014 11:00:35 PM

New York — More than two decades after Glenn Burke abruptly retired from Major League Baseball, the former LA Dodgers outfielder will be honored at Tuesday night’s all-star game as one of the few professional athletes to have come out. Burke´s four-and-a-half year career is remembered for his charismatic attitude and the pressures he faced as a gay athlete in the late 1970s. (Snip) MLB will honor Burke’s contributions at a Tuesday press conference, where it is also set to announce that it is ramping up LGBT inclusion efforts by working with retired player Billy Bean, who came

Comments:
Viewer alert; Major League Gaysball is planning a little in-your-face during the All-Star Game, to stimulate conversation with your kids. Must we all pretend to be homosexual, just to put a stop to this foolishness?

The quote at the end of the article is good for a chuckle.

And he is being ´honored´ for his sexual deviancy?

What happened to our country?

So will MLB honor other former players that died of syphilis? Gonorrhea? Dying with an STD is now an ´honor´? Maybe MLB should honor Idi Amin Dada since he died of syphilis.

Pre-emptive apology if this offends anyone.

"MLB would like to honor you for being a doo doo chaser and would like to present to you this statue of President Obama the first gay president".

He lasted for four years, hitting a grand total of 2 home runs and compiling a .237 lifetime batting average, pathetic stats for an outfielder. If he gets booed, is it because the fans are homophobes, racists, or simply because the guy does not belong there with legitimate stars?

"Prejudice drove me out of baseball sooner than it should have," Burke told the New York Times in 1994.

Yeah...well that and a 200 batting average.

If this is the most courageous case the LGBT crowd can come up with, then they are in much better shape than I thought.

#9, I add to that a comment by the English actress Hermione Gingold many years ago on a talk show. She was asked about the trend toward showing the seamier sides of life in movies. The host said, why not, it´s all part of life?

Her terrific answer: Well, so is diarrhea, but we don´t show that.

Unfortunately, and perhaps it´s good Ms. Gingold isn´t here to see it, now they do show that.

we were at the game..
not sure when they honored this deviant..
was it on tv?
we went up to get souveniers and food in the fifth inning..
also..
was the "love water not oil" banner shown on tv?
some commies draped it over the right field large screen tv and it was left up for about half an hour..
twenty five thousand cops all over the place and this was somehow put up.. i almost think the Twins/mlb allowed it.. it could´ve been a BOMB!
i am cancelling my season tickets tomorrows..
mlb is not a place where i want to take kids or grandkids anymore..
good place for homosexual communists, though..

The latest survey from the CDC shows that just under 3% of Americans identify themselves as ‘gay’, bi-sexual, lesbian (by the way, aren’t lesbians also ‘gay’?).

Why, then, is this relatively rare choice/condition so prevalently insinuated into every facet of our lives – from being mentioned somewhere in virtually every TV program, to forcibly being ‘celebrated’ in our schools and on our university campuses, and to being honored and cheered at sporting events and press conferences?

Who can explain why private sexual practices are so worthy of special recognition and mention (incredibly even by our President, Attorney General, etc.)?

When polled, as astounding number of Americans recently stated that they didn’t think that America was ‘exceptional’. Perhaps this answer was a reflection of their disgust for our current degenerating culture rather than a statement about our historic and traditional values and deeds.

2 home runs and batted .200. If he weren´t so lite in the loafers, he might actually have even been a player.

Now if he´d "played" in S.F. there would likely be a 35 ft. statue of Glenny in front that park.

All manner of businesses are under increasing pressure from gay activist groups to show they are gay friendly. Corporations from Mozilla to the Minnesota Twins to Major League Baseball are getting leaned on by these fascist pressure groups. And corporations with few exceptions are gutless and cave into the constant shrill demands and hoping to avoid escalation. Hence MLB scrambles to resurrect and laughably lionize a marginal talent like Glenn Burke. That´s the best they could do. MLB is just feeding the fascist beast, hoping it will placate it. Yes, gutless.

Ukip are set to win their first Commons seat with a landslide 64 per cent of the vote following the biggest swing in modern political history. Turncoat MP Douglas Carswell is set to humiliate David Cameron at the Clacton by-election sparked by his defection, a Survation poll for The Mail on Sunday has revealed. The figures – the first test of public opinion since the politician rocked Westminster by defecting to Nigel Farage’s party – predict a record 48 point swing towards Ukip. And they put the anti-Brussels party a staggering 44 percentage points ahead of Mr Carswell’s former party

A landscaper from California who claimed to be related to a civil rights leader has been accused of intentionally infecting at least two dozen men with HIV. Spokesman Michael Giorgino said San Diego’s attorney´s office presented the court a complaint Thursday alleging Thomas Miguel Guerra, 29, intentionally infected a man with the virus that can cause AIDS. According to prosecutors, Guerra was on a mission to spread the potentially deadly virus to as many people as possible.

A violent father-of-two escaped deportation moments before being put on a plane to Jamaica – by suddenly declaring he was homosexual. Alvin Brissett, 55, was ordered to be sent back to his Jamaican homeland after building up a long criminal record including thefts, drug possession, and assaults. Yet at the last moment, while he was in handcuffs in a van at Gatwick airport, he announced that he was gay and claimed he could not be sent to Jamaica because he could face discrimination there. This claim halted his deportation in its tracks. And even though a hearing subsequently ruled it

Baton Rouge, LA — The private fund-raiser at the Louisiana Lagniappe, one of Baton Rouge’s finer eateries, seems a typically polite affair. Crab cakes and smoked salmon; jackets but no ties. You wouldn’t guess the people inside were plotting an urban remapping campaign that critics are calling a betrayal of 50 years of civil rights progress. Fortunate residents of this the relatively prosperous southern section of a city that is otherwise blighted by poverty, violence and a failing public school system, they are demanding the right to break away from it and forge a whole new city of their own.

Pressure continues to mount on Mayor Bill de Blasio, who took office less than a year ago on a promise to nudge New York City back towards its more egalitarian roots, to put an end to the so-called “poor doors” built into new residential buildings, which segregate rich owners from their not-so-rich renting neighbours. This will be the arrangement at 40 Riverside Boulevard, a new development on the Upper West Side which is part luxury apartments with price tags rising to $20 million, and part affordable housing units that will rent for as little as $850 a month.

France´s new government was dealt an early blow on Wednesday after a key gauge showed business optimism deteriorated in August. French factory confidence fell to its lowest level in more than a year in August, adding to signs that the economy may struggle to grow after a stagnant first half. A slump in retail trade also dragged down overall business optimism. INSEE, France´s statistics office, said manufacturing sentiment dipped to 96 in August, from 97 in July.

More than 1,400 children were sexually abused during a period of over 16 years by gangs of paedophiles after police and council bosses turned a blind eye for fear of being labelled racist, a damning report has concluded. Senior officials were responsible for “blatant” failures that saw victims, some as young as 11, being treated with contempt and categorised as being “out of control” or simply ignored when they asked for help. In some cases, parents who tried to rescue their children from abusers were themselves arrested. Police officers even dismissed the rape of children by saying that sex had

Watching the events unfold in Ferguson, Missouri, I can’t help thinking about the Holocaust and post-war Germany. As the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, I’ve spent years watching Germany wrestle with its dark past. It’s just one of many places that have made efforts to understand and compensate for a difficult history: For nearly three decades, countries as varied as South Africa, Rwanda, and the nations of Latin America and post-Communist Eastern Europe have been engaged in this process, often called “transitional justice.” That’s a broad term for the ways in which societies deal with the legacies of past injustice.

It will take two decades to rebuild the thousands of houses destroyed during Israel’s assault on Gaza, according to a recent NGO report. At least 17,000 homes were obliterated or severely damaged during the conflict, with thousands more needing substantial repairs, according to an assessment by Shelter Cluster. More than 2,100 Palestinians, most of them civilians, were killed during the conflict. In addition 71 Israelis were killed – all but six of them soldiers. But the report on Gaza’s housing stock indicates inhabitants of the densely populated strip will face a severe infrastructural burden over the coming years.
