was risky wasn't it it was a girly risky but when officers raided Stonewall on a hot June night in 1969 the crowd fought back there was rioting there was significant rioting and people were setting fires to all garbage cans as you're sitting there just taking this all in what's going through your mind I couldn't believe it I thought it was it did seem like a movie the riots continued for several nights and the movement lasted much longer and immediately afterwards LGBT groups were formed to combat – screaming and fight for liberation over the years the Stonewall Inn took on other identities including a bagel shop and Chinese restaurant but today it's once again a bar attracting tourists from across the globe can this walking I could feel like my journey and is feeling the importance and significance of the fighting in 2016 Stonewall became a National Monument it's where people gather to celebrate milestones like the legalization of gay marriage and to mourn tragedies like the pulse nightclub shooting this is the gay Church I mean this is where pride began you just say that one word Stonewall and it has a lot of meaning to people absolutely it's bigger than a bar it's bigger than a brand it's bigger than anything else because it really is it's the movement this friday marks half a century since those riots began on the fiftieth anniversary what is it you want people to

  1. I'm calling for the abolishment of all law enforcement officials and their unions they cannot solve real crime .

  2. Another item that doesn't sound good is who ever she met at that park if it was all on the level and no danger why didn't he pick her up at the airport in guessing cuz he didn't want to be seen or on camera or the plates of his car because he knows he had something else planned for this nieve girl and someone who calls there mom to let her know u landed safe isn t the kind of person who just stops calling her mom. If it's on the level he would let her call.

  3. The only thing American children are afraid of is the Demacts destroying this country, after they give it away to illegal migrents.

  4. My my halle jackson is beautiful i would love it if she would take lester's job as head anchor…ohh and she could be my wife any day

  5. I'm not sure why these people are being admitted to the US to await a decision on their asylum applications. They are not Mexican citizens, they are citizens of other countries that are not contiguous with the United States. They have made it out of the country where they claim they are in danger, and are safe in Mexico. Why aren't they allowed to file applications for refugee status in the US at the border and await notification of future interview appointments in Mexico? Then if they are refused, Mexico can deal with them. Or, as is done in other parts of the world, a refugee camp can be set up where the individuals can be processed as refugees and be released to third party countries that accept them. There are zero reasons why the US should take them all, especially when they have reached safety in a third party country (Mexico).

  6. It's so friggen sad we can't feed our own taxpaying Children in schools but we can feed illegal immigrants. Screw you Democrats.

  7. Next Trump going to war on a Twitter spat
    Hillarious
    Good Americans Don't need stand-up comedian you have one in the White House

  8. AOC: “America’s border is just like a concentration camp!!”
    Me: “ Then it’s the only one in history where people climb a fence to get in..🤔”

  9. "One of the saddest lessons of history is
    this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of
    the bamboozle. We're no longer interested in the truth. The bamboozle has
    captured us. Its simply to painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves that we've
    been taken. Ounce you've given a charlatan power over you, you almost never get
    it back." Carl Segan

  10. We have laws! People should go through the front door where customs and protections is at! We need a better wall! Fund it! #maga @gop

  11. Buttigig is a racist for firing the first African-American police chief and for not firing this policeman, who was supposed to have his camera on but it would incriminate him so he did not want it on.

  12. Dems , those people should not be here period. People don't get allowed off a plane that's not welcome in the u.s . So why should the Mexicans just get the chance to hop the boarder. ? What right do they have. None they are ILLEGAL . the truth hurt but it still is the truth

  13. Why were those six tankers not protected by some military support? Ridiculous to be so naive in that region.

  14. A lot of business depend on illegal immigrants to keep cost down. With jobs that most Americans won't do.

  15. One, it's too expensive to get everyone out, two, it would take about 30 years, three what's happening now was predicted long ago if mass deportation was started

  16. Why are there still "catholic schools"? If a church/religion wants to support a school, it should do so without imposing it's religious beliefs on the teachers and students. Teach your religion in churches and homes; leave it out of schools

  17. That poor girl's friends said very unflattering things about her. And she looked very happy to be on national TV soaking up the opportunity.

  18. Black people are SO innocent. They never commit crimes. A bunch of angels. I back the cop. Pull a weapon on a cop, expect to get shot. Simple.

  19. its funny how the government say no you cant get a abortion cuz it's wrong then they go mistreat kid from the south like sht so what up with that can somebody tell is that sht wrong or what something dont make since

  20. I went to Catholic school.
    I don't know if they knew, but the kindergarten teacher was a lesbian. She was hands down my favorite teacher. I knew what homosexuality was when i was 6. It had no effect on her teaching. If anything she was more equipped to teach children.

  21. I'm a Democrat and I'm sick and tired of our Democratic leaders! Billions of billions of dollars are being spent on these illegal immigrants with full benefits from the working backs of the US man and woman. Our democratic leaders are like bozos, they only care about their illegal votes. I grew up being told by my family to vote Democrat because they are for the working man that is not true any longer! Democrats waste our taxpayers money, now that pushing for climate change that is going to be in normous high taxes, they speak of tariffs when the taxes on this is going to be so high people will not be able to ride in their cars, and with high penalties against us! When you hear substainable living, Green New Deal, the Democrats leaders are following the United Nations, Agenda 21 agenda 30 guidelines. This was signed back in 1992 by just under a 180 Nations to accept a one world order which supposed to begin in 2021. Don't take my word for it start study Agenda 21 and agenda 30 there's a lot of great books out there and study some of the older YouTube channels they took great pride in trying to teach us a long time ago as they've been fighting this for years. I've seen the Democratic party turn into becoming socialist and communist. All I see is democratic leaders twisting the truth. I'm proud of each and every one of you who voted in Donald Trump, as our president! 🇺🇸 Trump 2020🇺🇸

  22. The conditions at the immigration center- predicted, inevitable. Pelosi’s responsible. There is no debate, she fails to do her job and blames Trump. Same ole story.

  23. The wealthy men that had money set into place to have open boards. And flood America with illegals. With none educated people. The laws were destroying the wealthy white men that were highly educated of there time. They would allow the none thinkers control.

  24. To the Dr. "Kidnapping" after getting knocked out I do not believe that would cause him to blackout have no memory for a whole week. Then miraculously arrive in the US somehow. Something's fishy!!!

  25. Why should I as a u.s. American taxpayer have to pay for toothbrushes and toothpaste and soap and deodorant? Come on people let's get serious I work hard to pay for soap and food on my table.

  26. US ramping up the pressure on Iran after starting their own problems with Iran……. US showing the world how stupid they are.

  27. seems to me that if the doctor was hit hard enough to not only lose consciousness but also have memory loss there would be some kind of wound to his head. just saying.

  28. There was a scabies outbreak at the sub acute health center where I work and we clean like crazy. If you put enough people at in a facility you will have outbreaks. of lice, I mean c’mon my 5 year old niece’s whole classroom got it.
