Hardly remembering Stonewall

Posted in acronyms, riots, stonedwall

Millions of articles written about LGBTQ+WERTY Stonewall Riots of the wee hours of June 28, 1969 that pull on the heart strings and sell lots of ad space, proclaiming it was a day of turning for the gay community and reckoning of the US legal system which systemically oppressed QWERTY+’\s.

Some of the things never reported:

  1. The bar was owned by the Mafia[1]
  2. The raid was about drug use not sexual behavior [CRWIRTEBIF – Can’t Recall Where I Read That Exactly But It’s Fact – it’s so hard to find this reference now in a search as the internet is filled to capacity with propaganda that pushes the “poor gays” story as no one is interested in the truth, they want drama and heart strings***]
  3. The reason for the raid was suspected “bootlegging” of alcohol
  4. Another concern for the raid was that allegedly the Mafia was “blackmailing” wealthy customers and other gays
  5. After the police raided the bar, ID’s & QWERTY’s were checked, and patrons were outside, but waiting for the “paddywagon” that took too long, they got very agitated which is typical of humans to get agitated easily when drunk
  6. A D (Dyke) was handcuffed and said “Why don’t you guys do something?” which was the START/RIOT signal
  7. This occured in 1969 because 69 is a sexual reference

[1] Wikipedia – “Very few establishments welcomed openly gay people in the 1950s and 1960s. Those that did were often bars, although bar owners and managers were rarely gay. At the time, the Stonewall Inn was owned by the Mafia.[5][6]”  “The Stonewall Inn, located at 51 and 53 Christopher Street, along with several other establishments in the city, was owned by the Genovese crime family.[5]

***Notice how Blog.Google does not have the word “drug” even once mentioned on their “Remembering Stonewall” page. This image below is a snapshot from June 27, 2017. Notice the red box in the lower left, that is the search for the term “drug” and it appears in red because it is nowhere to be found on the page. I also did one for the term “alcohol” and “bootlegging” and those also did not appear. How is it that Google of all sources of reference cannot present the reality of Stonewall?
