[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Taxpayers are, unfortunately, constantly expected to fund programs that they are wholly opposed to. It’s as if the government, at all levels, believes that once they confiscate your money, it is theirs to do as they please regardless whether or not you agree. In the city of Seattle, Mayor Ed Murray is taking that belief and shoving it in the face against anyone who dares to disagree with his stance on homosexuality by painting 11 crosswalks in the Capitol Hill area of the city with rainbows in order to “celebrate homosexuality”.
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]While the initial funds of $66,000 came from fees paid by developers in the area, Murray said the city would maintain the crosswalks even after those fees no longer applied. Murray said the crosswalks were due to be redone anyway, so I suppose he opted to send a political statement by painting them in the rainbow colors that celebrate homosexuality.
According to the Seattle Times, Murray said “the city picked locations by working with community members to pinpoint heavily used streets and spots that have been sites of assault based on sexual orientation.” They are also looking at other areas of the city to spread propaganda to celebrate homosexuality.
The city is working to complete the rainbow crosswalks by Thursday so that they are in place before the Seattle Gay Pride Parade on Sunday.
Murray celebrated this decision on his Facebook page.
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]The mayor received very valid criticism on his Facebook page for the decision to paint 11 crosswalks with rainbow colors to celebrate homosexuality in light of the terrible condition of many of the roads in Seattle.
But, hey, what’s a few dangerous potholes and crosswalks when you can “celebrate cultural diversity” and homosexuality with rainbow crosswalks.
