Guess which flag was NOT allowed by ‘tolerant’ liberals in Chicago’s gay pride parade?

Between Nazi marches in Skokie and gay pride parades in Chicago, the Windy City blows especially cold for Jews.

Three people were asked to leave Chicago’s annual gay pride parade Saturday, known locally as the Chicago Dyke March. The reason? Event organizers thought it triggering that they were carrying Jewish Pride flags, Haaretz reported.

The mere sight of gay pride’s iconic rainbow colors merged with the Star of David it was feared, would make fellow parade participants feel unsafe.

Writer John-Paul Pagano, “who focuses on illiberal ideas, mostly as they find expression in anti-Semitic reaction to Israel and modernity,” according to his Twitter bio, reported:

This is apparently the first year that the organizers have banned the Jewish Pride flag at the Dyke March.

“it was a flag from my congregation which celebrates my queer, Jewish identity which I have done for over a decade marching in the Dyke March with the same flag,” Laurel Grauer, a member of the Jewish LGBTQ organization A Wider Bridge, told the Windy City Times.

So much for diversity and inclusiveness.

The Chicago Dyke March calls itself an “anti-racist, anti-violent, volunteer-led, grassroots mobilization and celebration of dyke, queer, bisexual, and transgender resilience,” according to its Twitter account.

Well, “anti-racist” except for that Jewish thing. More than a few found it ironic that they would favor Palestine over the Jewish state given Islam’s intolerance of homosexuality.

The organizers’ decision had the opposite desired effect on at least this person.

Finally, one wondered what’s the deal with this “pride” thing.

Good question.

During the late 70s, the American Nazi party wanted to march through the village of Skokie, a Chicago suburb. Residents there resisted the idea — Skokie is and was heavily Jewish.

The long and the short of it is the Nazi’s held their little parade. So much for the Windy City being welcoming to Jews.
