Dunleavy compares gays to nazis
"If an Israeli group wants to march in New York, do you allow neo-Nazis into their parade? If African-Americans are marching in Harlem, do they have to let the Ku Klux Klan into their parade?" said John Dunleavy, head of the St. Patrick's Day Parade, in an interview with The Irish Times. "People have rights. If we let the [Irish Lesbian and Gay Organization] in, is it the Irish Prostitute Association next?"
And you thought Pat Robertson's comments were provacative.
