Idiots. That’s what the people who run the D.C. Dyke March are. “Jewish stars and other identifications and celebrations of Jewishness (yarmulkes, talit, other expressions of Judaism or Jewishness) are welcome and encouraged,” Yael Horowitz, the organizer, wrote to in a Facebook comment. “We do ask that participants not bring pro-Israel paraphernalia in solidarity with our queer Palestinian friends.”
You have to be an idiot to allow
Palestinian Hamas/PLO flags at an event, knowing that those organizations condemn LGBT, punishable many times by death. In fact, Israel stands alone in the Middle East as an LGBT friendly nation.
Many Arab countries do not officially aknowledge that gays even exist. A memorable example was a 2007 speech at New York’s Columbia University by former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in which he said, “In Iran we don’t have homosexuals like in your country.”
In Gaza, the Hamas government has declared that homosexuality is punishable by death. In 2011, Hamas’s Al-Aksa TV featured Syrian academic Muhammad Rateb al-Nabulsi, who said homosexuality “involves a filthy place” and “leads to the destruction of the homosexual,” he said, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute.Outword Magazine
Israel is one of the most LGBT-friendly nations on Earth, never mind just the Middle East. There exists a gay caucus in the Israeli Knesset. The biggest group is called “Proud to Be Likud.” Likud is the party led by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. There are Orthodox Jewish groups for gay men (Havruta) and lesbian women (Bat Kol). These are not persecuted by the government. Gays are not thrown from balconies in Israel.
Tel-Aviv has one of the most active LGBT communities in the world, and its gay nightlife is fairly legendary, at least according to public tourist websites promoting the city.
Although Tel Aviv’s nightlife is generally regarded as among the best in the world, this is particularly the case when it comes to gay establishments. One reason gay nightlife in Tel Aviv is so exciting is that the Tel Aviv gay scene revolves around weekly parties, rather than specific bars or clubs like most cities around the world.
But apparently, in D.C., the idiots who supposedly are marching for lesbian “pride” have more pride in people who would mutilate them, persecute them, and kill them than a nation where they’d be welcomed and invited to parties.
This also happened during the Chicago Dyke March in 2017, when those idiots sided with “intersectional” feminists whose causes include everything and the kitchen sink, except the plight of women who are banned from getting an education, or driving (which was only recently granted by Saudi Arabia), or choosing whom they will marry, in places that only share one value with the intersectional idiots: a chic hatred of Israel.
Idiocy like this has led to virulent anti-Semites in Congress such as Rep. Ilhan Omar, cheered on by activists like Linda Sarsour. Neither of these two cerebral midgets have one ounce of concern for real women’s issues, or issues confronting the LGBT community in the Middle East, between their combined helium-filled cranial cavities.
The American left is pro-LGBT, at least the straight “allies,” primarily in opposition to Bible-believing Christians. That’s really their main motivation. Otherwise, they’d be like Israel where LGBT people are just–people–like anyone else. In places where there’s no bogeyman to slay, gay people are just–people–not a special protected class.
In the same way, the idiots running the D.C. Dyke March and other brainless leftist mixers for the jobless, where “intersectional” values oppose capitalism and favor Marxism; oppose strong governments and favor anarchy. Israel’s treatment of LGBT people is irrelevant to them. Israel’s embrace of capitalism and strong government is anathema to them.
To actual violent Marxists and Antifa thugs, they are useful idiots, because they supply funding and permits and other things criminals don’t want to deal with.
Let them have their idiot gathering. They can celebrate the depths of their stupidity together while the rest of the world does things that matter. The only silver lining: they’re marching in D.C. today (Friday), in the fetid humidity of late spring, all together, so the rest of us can enjoy the day knowing we won’t run into them.
