They Can “Fuggedibowdit” On St.Patrick’s Day In NYC

27 Feb

From 1970 onwards, save for a few times, such as Work and Family Illnesses, it had been my privilege and honor to have marched in The New York City Saint Patrick’s Day Parade. The funniest thing about the Parade which I will miss is that 5th Avenue, a Sea of Green if ever I saw one, is that the World’s Largest NY Jets Rally would take place with chants of “J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets” all over the Line of March. In 2005, Red Sox Nation took over 5th Avenue, with the occasional chant of “Yankees Suck.” But then, it’s New York.

A Pall has been cast over the Parade this year. Granted, the 2002 Parade was a bit sad in the wake of 09-11-01, where the names of those who died at the Twin Towers on that Fateful and Fearful Tuesday Morning, were held aloft by Parade Goers during the Parade. But we marched on. One moment near the end was when some girls donned NY Jets Gear and the “J-E-T-S” Chant was done, it broke up the Somber Mood of that Parade if only for a moment.

Le Promenade Du Gauche:
The Ever Loving Leftists, whose idea of a Grand Time is to disrupt a Solemn High Mass, had previously foisted a “Camp In Demonstration” in a Wall Street Area Plaza, called Zuccotti Park on Liberty Street and Broadway. THIS demonstration was called “Occupy Wall Street.” This was a motley bunch which you could tell by their signs, Slovenly attire and iPhones and iPads in their possession.
I did a mock video called “Occupy 5th Avenue”, shot on an iPod Touch 4G, which is playing somewhere on It mocks “Occupy Wall Street.”  Of Course 5th Avenue was being occupied, but only by the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, truly an All American Event, since before the American Revolutionary War, beginning in Downtown Manhattan in 1762. The Video was Made about 250 Years after the 1st Parade.
But, this time The Left has gone too far. They are looking to force out the Family Values and Traditions of this Venerable Celebration and replace it with Modernism with the “Mens Rea” of being no different from a Gay Pride Parade, which every year in June, disgraces 5th Avenue.
It is “The Invasion Of The Starbucks Crowd into Tim Horton’s.”
Many people gather for Coffee of the strong variety at Tim Horton’s. The Only thing the Starbucks Crowd is looking for is Wireless Fidelity Access for one’s computer.It isn’t really about the coffee.

Last year many sponsors pulled out of the Parade, due to the threatened boycott of the sponsors by an alliance of people dedicated to SELF and Sinful Lifestyle.

Can You say “We’re Here, We’re Queer & We’re Not Going Shopping?”(With asides to Rush Limbaugh).
If you can read it, that is just what it means. Upon pressure of Higher Powers at the Diabolical Comcast-NBC, an Affinity Group within that Outfit, called “OUT@NBC Universal” supposedly dressed in Business Attire, will be marching, no doubt, with other “Fellow Travelers” on 5th Avenue, to push it in Spectators Faces, that a Particular Lifestyle is being endorsed.
What I am not enthralled about is how many other Leftist Groups(Including “Nuns On The Bus”)will join this party. Will Neil Patrick Harris be marching in his “Tighty Whiteys”? Will “Ellen” be there? Will Sir Elton John be appearing? The Village People, singing “Y. M. C. A.”?
The Yankee Stadium “Bleacher Creatures”, singing their “Alternative Rendition” of what The Village People made famous about 40 Years Ago?

I fear that more than the Bagpipes will be blown. This is going to be a Crass Spectacle, giving Attention to Assorted and Sordid Spoilsports who think “They’re The Show.” People do NOT care for Freak Shows.
To THOSE People and you know who you are, know that you want to usurp the Purpose of The Parade, which is in Honor of The Patron Saint of Ireland. It is on March 17th when the One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church, Commemorates St. Patrick. March 17th is actually The Date Of His Death and Passing To New Life In The Lord. Green Beer, just the thought of it, makes me want to “Vomit, Barf & Puke”(A Most Dear Friend would describe that concoction).

To John Lahey, Chairman of The St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee, you speak about Diversity. Actually, the Parade always had Diversity and not of the “Politically Correct” Kind in this Day and Age. I remember New York City Catholic Schools being on Parade, with all Races represented in the Bands and School Groups. Many of those Catholic Schools are gone now. The “Fighting 69th New York Army Regiment”, made famous in both Movies and Many Wars, is represented with Blacks, Latinos, Asians and Whites in Today’s World.

But for the Immoral Old Media Types who are losing out to New Media, as well as for the “Mammon”, called Big Money, The Parade is held Hostage by the 2 Percenters who threaten not to buy certain products.

And because of This Situation, as far as many people who have marched on 5th Avenue at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, The Parade Committee has become part of The World. It is also in Vogue in the Current Era of The Roman Rite of The Catholic Church, Post Vatican II, to turn a Blind Eye towards allowing this to go on. It is if a New grouping in The Church has come about, namely, in Addition to The Church Militant, The Church Suffering and The Church Triumphant, called The Church Milqtoast.

We Catholic Christians are supposed to counter the Current Culture of Debauchery. But our Leaders don’t care, being more interested in a Dialogue which will not end.

The New York City Saint Patrick’s Day Parade is suffering because she will not follow the Tried and True Traditions of this Parade and will whither. It is not a mere Secular Exercise of Irish Nationality, But Of Catholic Faith. And, Sadly Enough, it is going by the Wayside.

I will be at Mass on Tuesday, March 17th & the at Breakfast with Ancient Order Of Hibernians Queens Division 14, but no further.

I refuse to be on 5th Avenue, as so many others.


Kyrie Elaison!
