Anyone who depends on the MSM for news likely thinks that all who oppose Obama and Obamacare are evil and white and Republican and racist. Consequently, I doubt that the MSM will do any reporting on the Stand Up for Religious Freedom rally held in San Francisco on Saturday. People of all colors gathered there in united opposition to Obamacare and its mandates and call on all to vote accordingly in November.
Although it was pea soup fog all morning, the sun came out when the crowd assembled for the rally. The shadow over the crowd in the photo below is cast, literally and figuratively, by the SF Federal Building which houses the regional offices of the US Dept. of Health and Human Services, the bureaucracy which is managing Obamacare:
There was an all-star cast of excellent speakers, including Dion Evans:
Craig DeLuz of the Frederick Douglass Foundation:
Kevin McGary of the Frederick Douglass Foundation:
Marie Conway Stroughter of the African-American Conservative Blog Talk Radio Program:
Maria Hazel Lewis:
Emilia Calderon of Sacramento State University's pro-life club:
Dr. Timothy Johnson of the Frederick Douglass Foundation:
Rev. Antoine Lamar Miller:
And, Walter Hoye who organized the rally:
Heckling the speakers were four members of San Francisco's Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. The "Sisters" are a group of gay men who dress up, in pancake makeup, as nuns and mock religion:
The name "Cordileone" in the signs above is a reference to San Francisco's new Catholic Archbishop Salvatore Joseph Cordileone who is an opponent of gay marriage.
The "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence" group bills itself as a "leading-edge Order of queer nuns." Its "nuns" typically wear bras on their heads. In a further insult the Roman Catholic church and its traditions, the "nuns" often adopt sexually suggestive names such as "Sister Anni Coque l'Doo," "Sister Dinah Might, If You Ask Her Right," and "Sister Mina J'Trois."
In a not very successful attempt to minimize the disruption, rally
participants tried to place this sign between the "sisters" and the
rest of the rally:
"sisters" were outraged by the sign and declared its depiction of Obama
to be "racist!" They never explained what exactly was supposed to be
"racist" about comparing Obama to French royalty.
moment and savor the irony: Here we have a rally organized and led by
African-Americans. Accusing them of bigotry are members of the Sisters
of Perpetual Indulgence which is an anti-religious hate group composed
largely of white men.
As the "sisters" are leftists, it won't be much of a surprise that it didn't take long before they were in trouble with the police. Here, two of San Francisco's Finest patiently explain to the "sisters" that there are limits to their right to disrupt the rally:
The "sisters" left the rally not long after that.
Below are several photos of people attending the rally:
Lastly, there were kids at the rally having fun:
Some at this rally had a full appreciation of the value of freedom. The Frederick Douglass Foundation, for example, is dedicated to promoting the "free market and limited government." Others there were perfectly happy having the government take over control of health care but are shocked and surprised that the government then issued edicts ordering them to violate their consciences.
This rally was organized by Walter B. Hoye II and his California Civil Rights Foundation. Many of the speakers are associated with the Frederick Douglass Federation of California. This rally was part of the nationwide Stand Up for Religious Freedom rallies.
