After a hard day’s work targeting Jews suspected of being Zionist, it’s time for rest and relaxation
"On June 24, 2017, Jews who carried a Jewish LGBT Pride flag with a Star of David on it at the “Dyke March Chicago” were singled out by organizers and kicked out of the event, which was held on public property.

The night before, she contacted an organizer to ask if her flag would “be protested.” The organizer told her the flag was welcome, but reminded her that the space is one that supports Palestinian rights..."
