One of the Left’s favorite buzzwords is “tolerance.”
The Left paints itself as the most tolerant group in American politics. They claim that minorities and immigrants, for example, are only safe with liberals.
For the Left, everyone else in America is intolerant. Liberals notoriously use that long list of names – racist, Islamophobic, xenophobic, homophobic, etc. – to refer to people who are not liberals.
Liberal tolerance, however, has turned into one giant paradox. That is because, in the name of accepting everyone, the Left refuses to accept those it deems “intolerant.”
It matters not whether the people shut out by the Left are actually intolerant. All that matters is how liberals feel about it, and as a result, numerous groups are attacked for no apparent reason.
The best example of this liberal intolerance is the rampant antisemitism within the Left. This was put on display recently at a Chicago LGBT march.
As reported by Windy City Times:
…the Dyke March Collective also ejected three people carrying Jewish Pride flags (a rainbow flag with a Star of David in the center).
According to one of those individuals—A Wider Bridge Midwest Manager Laurel Grauer—she and her friends were approached a number of times in the park because they were holding the flag.
“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,” she told Windy City Times.
She added that she lost count of the number of people who harassed her.
One Dyke March collective member, asked by Windy City Times for a response, said the women were told to leave because the flags “made people feel unsafe,” that the march was “anti-Zionist” and “pro-Palestinian.”
“They were telling me to leave because my flag was a trigger to people that they found offensive,” Grauer said. “Prior to this [march] I had never been harassed or asked to leave and I had always carried the flag with me.”
This whole situation is outrageous.
It proves that that so-called “tolerant” leftists have no tolerance whatsoever for Jews or Zionists.
Excluding Israel from a march about tolerance is a huge mistake. Israel has had one of the most turbulent histories of any nation on Earth, and yet, it still works tirelessly to support human rights initiatives as the only democracy in the Middle East.
The State of Israel gives equal rights to gays. In contrast, the Palestinians that these leftists support literally throw gay people off buildings. Israel should be lauded by LGBT marches, not shut out.
The only reason that Israel is shut out is that the progressive movement has been infiltrated by pro-Islam antisemites who want to see Israel wiped off the map.

There is nothing tolerant about Islam. There is nothing tolerant about Palestine, whatever that may be. These ideologies advocate not for equality, but rather for the oppression of women, the subjection of minorities, and violence against gays.
Israel, on the other hand, is the exact opposite. Woman in Israel have equal opportunities. Tel Aviv has one of the most popular LGBT pride marches in the world. Even though not everything in Israeli society is perfect, it works constantly to make things better and more equal.
What is not to like about Israel? The only answer from these pride marchers must be “Jews,” and if that is the case, then the Left needs a serious history lesson.
