Heckler’s Veto Prevails Again – Another Holiday Inn Disses Another Conservative Group

First the Crystal Lake Holiday Inn decided that the Illinois Minuteman Project couldn’t hold a private meeting on immigration.

Protesters, you know.

Now the Naperville Holiday Inn has canceled an Americans for Truth banquet out of fear of protest from homosexual activists.

The group’s leader Peter LaBarbera wrote the Holiday Inn “dropped our reservation due to the possibility of a ‘gay’ protest against us.”

“It seems that there is now a sort of politically correct homosexual ‘heckler’s veto’ that’s forcing or persuading businesses to do things to decent people that they wouldn’t normally do.” LaBarbera told OneNewsNow.com reporter Jim Brown.

According to Brown’s article on the AFT web site,

The pro-family group was well into planning a fundraising banquet at that facility for October 6, when the Inn’s General Manager Dennis Igoe cancelled the group’s reservation, citing safety issues for the hotel’s patrons.

Those concerns stemmed from the possibility that homosexual activists would protest the event and resulting negative publicity for the hotel, not from AFT’s planned activities.

Igoe’s actions were upheld by the Holiday Inn corporate offices, leaving AFT to scramble for alternate accommodations.

Now there are two reasons not to patronize Holiday Inns.

The banquet has been re-scheduled for Friday, October 5th.
