Newsweek: Jewish Flags Banned From Chicago Gay Pride March.

Take a look at the double standard and hypocrisy of the world. 

At least one person had the sense to see the hypocrisy in this:

However, the decision to prevent people from displaying their Jewish Pride flags did not go down well with some marchers."

This is not what this is community is supposed to be about," marcher Ruthie Steiner told the Times after seeing people thrown out because of their Jewish Pride flags.

"I'm German-born. Am I pinkwashing by being here and supporting my community? Is every nation which does not have a clean civil-rights record and also hosts a Pride parade guilty of pinkwashing? With all the people that so hate the LGBTQ community, for it to tear itself apart in self-hatred makes no sense at all,” she added.

That's interested me since I heard about it. There are two parades in Chicago. There's the big one in Boystown that's pretty much just about LGBTQ. Then there's the smaller one that is smaller and more social and political. It's the one for the SJWs and it's the one that banned the Star of David. It's another example of the hypocrisy of people that are always outraged.

Did you read the other side of the story, though? Because all the articles I've read quote the people who were thrown out and no one else.

Obviously, I've no idea what actually happened but the organizers' side of the story is that they were not thrown out because of the star of David but after they expressed support for Israel which would make sense because they were apparently part of A Wider Bridge.

IF that is the case, the organizers are 100% right in my book. As far as I'm concerned, Zionism has no place in leftist spaces as much as antisemitism.
