We here in Tampa owe a debt of gratitude to the Sterling District’s representative on the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors, Eugene Delgaudio, for his excellent description of Tampa’s annual Gasparilla Festival. I’ve sort of blown it off (pardon the pun) over the past few years. It’s crowded, jostling, and drunken mess down on Bayshore. Obviously it’s changed a lot since last we went, so I may have to start going again.
Delgaudio also has a scam he runs to bring in a nice annual salary sending out missives as the self-titled “Public Advocate of the United States.” So in a recent fund raising letter one of the most famously loony tunes anti-gay activists in the United States described Tampa’s parade thusly:
The event is a full two weeks of seemingly family oriented events, with parades and treasure hunts around the city. But in recent years Radical Homosexuals have been intent on turning it into a two week alcohol fueled display of public debauchery. Organizers started by purposefully making the parade route zig-zag so no one could call it a “straight parade.”
Word is that Radical Homosexuals have infiltrated as event organizers to promote homosexual events that are designed to prey upon unsuspecting college students by enticing them to join their “krewes” and help build parade floats in exchange for free alcohol. When the young men are sufficiently intoxicated, homosexuals dressed as pirates whisk them away to God knows where to take advantage of them sexually. There are even countless stories of any number of immoral sex act being performed by open homosexuals – some even in broad daylight during the event.
WOW! We’ve sure been missing out, so I can’t wait for next year’s parade. In the meantime, be sure to send Eugene a nice fat contribution. I guess he wants to “come” next year too, since in his missive he asks for money.
Gotta love a County that would elect this guy to anything…you go Loudoun
