In my opinion Bradley Manning Isagreat example of the revolutionary spirit of what Pride is. This man acted in accordance with his conscience when he realized that he had become an unwitting servant of oppression. He acted knowing that he would probably disappear intoamilitary prison. That is true courage and real heroism. Itsashame that more people in this country cant see that.Icommend SF Pride for naming him grand marshall.
I have alway seen LGBT men and women that want to join the military areavery twisted form of collaborator. Why would anyone want to kill for the same paradigm that oppresses them. Its alright to demand rights for yourself but when it comes to taking freedom away from others its game on. Brady Manning was inaposition to see that the real enemies of the people of this country are domestic not foreign. Asacitizen of this country andasoldier it was his duty to take action. History will view him inafavorable light.
