Crowds of 300,000 religious right extremists on Sunday in Paris, France, rioted against police, who were forced to use tear gas to control the anti-gay mobs. But John Aravosis at AmericaBlog reports these “family values” hypocrites who think gay people shouldn’t be allowed to marry or adopt and raise children use their own children — even toddlers, as you’ll see below — as human shields.
Anti-gay “family values” protesters in Paris today got violent with the local police during a large anti-gay-marriage protest, and then used their nursery school age children as some kind of human shield to challenge the police.
“On met les enfants devant! On met les enfants devant!” TRANSLATION: “Put the kids in front! Put the kids in front!” a father yells to other protesters, as he approaches the police line with his three year old child perilously perched on his shoulders in order to challenge the police who had just used tear gas and batons to push back the protesters who had just attacked them.
Aravosis has several images at AmericaBlog, and includes this video:
NOM was shameless in promoting the last protest that anti-gay “family values” activists held in Paris, writing about it over and over again on their Web site. Even Buzzfeed noted the close ties between NOM and the French anti-gay activists. And here’s NOM’s president Brian Brown in Paris at the earlier rally in January, bragging about his support for the French anti-gay activists:
