Really Bad Analogies 101

John Dunleavy, the chairman of New York's St. Patrick's Day parade, explaining why he prevented a group of gay Irish-Americans from marching this year:
If an Israeli group wants to march in New York, do you allow neo-Nazis into their parade? If African-Americans are marching in Harlem, do they have to let the Ku Klux Klan into their parade?
No, of course not. That would be like forcing the organizers of a Gay Pride celebration to let you into their parade.

If you get my drift.
