Audubon Zoo, aquarium cancel pro-police promotion, citing 'divisive' potential
LINK

quote:

After drawing up plans to offer discounts to anyone wearing blue to show support for the New Orleans Police Department, the Audubon Nature Institute announced Tuesday it was canceling the six-day promotion, citing feedback that “this event could be unintentionally divisive.”

A statement from a spokesperson for the Audubon Zoo and Audubon Aquarium of the Americas said the purpose of hosting Blue at the Zoo from May 11 to May 16, alongside the New Orleans Police & Justice Foundation, was to “promote and foster positive interactive experiences” with the Police Department. But an announcement Monday of the promotion as well as a planned news conference triggered “feedback … from members of our community and from persons outside of our community” which convinced Audubon to scrap the idea, the statement said.

But if they had a "Thug Day" or a "Felon Picnic" they would be praised.

They cited “feedback” from members of the community, AND OUTSIDE OF THE COMMUNITY.

WHO?

BLM, Sharpton, Soros, ???

Outsiders, who don’t give a shite about a safe, family friendly environment for New Orleans.

I called my daughter who lives in NOLA as an ER RN, and is a member of the Audubon Zoo, and she is livid. I told her express herself to her friends and the Zoo. Counter “negative feedback” by making calls and spreading the word.

Some of my fondest memories as a young boy was at that zoo. Then as a parent to be able to bring my daughters. Then, as a visitor, with my grandsons.

Did we not learn what happens in New Orleans without the boys in blue during Katrina? What world are these people living in?
