Are government regulations wonderful or horrible? Should we repeal them as fast as we can or pass more by the bushel? Can we have a conversation about this without vitriol and fixed bayonets? Gail Collins and Bret Stephens offer some hope--
Gay pride organizers in Chicago told Jewish gay marchers they had to stay away unless they denounced their own liberation movement.
No other minority group was given such a test. You could march as a gay BLM member, a gay supporter of any minority liberation in the world - so long as not Jewish.
They even claimed that seeing a Star of David on the Gay Pride Flag made some gay people "afraid" - but for some reason they were not afraid to see flags of entities that like to kill gay people -- such as Palestinian flags. No problem with Gay Pride Flags with the Star and Crescent on it, even though Muslim nations on the whole are the most vehemently anti-gay nations on the planet. You know - burning them alive; throwing them off roofs; etc.
And apparently zero concern for gay Jewish marchers who might not "feel safe" with flags around referencing organizations that would love to see a genocide of the Jews in the Middle East.
Morality has gone upside down. The organizers actually said the march was in part to be "pro-Palestinian" even tho you could be murdered for trying to march in gay pride in Gaza or the West Bank. Some actually and that it was wrongful "pink washing" to even mention that gay people have full equal rights and are visible in all aspects of Israeli society.
We are living in very dark days. We need to stand up against the growing bigotry within the Left as hard as we do against the long-existing bigotry of the Right. When bigotry is embraced by both ends of the political spectrum we can know we are facing potential calamity.
