Queer Fest to be held in European Parliament

https://i0.wp.com/brussels.carpediem.cd/data/afisha/o/34/64/3464e51305.jpgThe Green Group is organising a very queer gathering in the European Parliament on 17 November (full programme below). Using a term that was long considered as belittling of homosexuals, Green Vice President of Parliament, Ulrike Lunacek, invites her MEP colleagues to attend an event dubbed “Queer People Unite”.

Naturally, this event is intended as a morale booster for promoters of privileges for homosexuals. Not content with having denatured marriage in a slew of EU countries, Ms Lunacek and her fellow queers want to develop strategies for undermining the moral values of the next target countries – Lithuania is singled out as a country “that prohibits to talk openly about LGBTI rights with children.” Presumably, Ms Lunacek, is referring to the law which, inter alia, forbids distributing explicit homosexual literature in schools, or from showing pornography on TV during family hours. Presumably also, Ms Lunacek feels that Lithuanian children are seriously discriminated against by missing out on all this depravity.

The Austrian MEP shares with her colleagues her strong objection to the fact that “over twenty thousand people demonstrate against same sex marriage in the streets of Paris.” In line with the usual Lesbian-Gay Bullying Totalitarian (LGBT) ideology, in countries such as France that have introduced same-sex “marriage”, no diverging opinion will be tolerated. Any protests against the official LGBT ideology need to be severely repressed.

Ms Lunacek is particularly vindictive towards what she calls “harsh attacks of repressive, neo-conservative, religious right-wing and right-wing movements attempt to push back achievements that were long fought for.” What the intolerant Green VP is referring to here are people who hold religious beliefs that consider homosexual acts to be sinful and thus harmful to the immortal souls of practicing homosexuals, not to mention the diseases they inflict on their bodies.

The conclusion has to be that the “Queer People” are uniting in Brussels this week to develop strategies for persecuting normal people, morally upright people, religious people, and all people who oppose the totalitarian ideology epitomised by Ulrike Lunacek.
