The intolerant left continues to make the news due to an increasingly virulent strain of liberal fascism.
In the latest dispatch from the front lines of the toxic stew of hatred of identity politics, a Jewish Pride group was ousted from a gay pride parade in Chicago on Saturday.
Organizers of the Chicago Dyke March are in full damage control mode after easily offended snowflakes put on their jackboots and kicked out several people because they were carrying flags representing the Star of David and the rainbow colors because it made them feel unsafe.

According to Haaretz “Chicago LGBT March Bans Jewish Pride Flags: ‘They Made People Feel Unsafe’”:
Three people carrying Jewish Pride flags were asked to leave the annual Chicago Dyke March on Saturday.
The Chicago-based LGBTQ newspaper Windy City Times quoted a Dyke March collective member as saying the rainbow flag with the Star of David in the middle “made people feel unsafe,” and that the march was “pro-Palestinian” and “anti-Zionist.”
The Chicago Dyke March is billed as an “anti-racist, anti-violent, volunteer-led, grassroots mobilization and celebration of dyke, queer, bisexual, and transgender resilience,” according to its Twitter account.
Laurel Grauer, a member of the Jewish LGBTQ organization A Wider Bridge, told the Windy City Times “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.”
“They were telling me to leave because my flag was a trigger to people that they found offensive,” she added.
The left’s hatred for Israel is hardly a secret and they have long cast their lot with the Palestinians in the ongoing conflict.

While the Chicago Dyke March proudly promotes itself as being “anti-Zionist” there is a fine line between hating on Israel and outright anti-Semitism which would seem to be taking root as the radical left increasingly mimics the tactics of Nazis.
So much for tolerance.
