(Jewish Group) After banning Jewish flag, Chicago Dyke March displays PLO flags

After banning Jewish flag, Chicago Dyke March displays PLO flags
Arutz Sheva
26 June 2018

The Chicago Dyke March, an LGBT pride parade, prominently featured Palestinian flags one year after ejecting marchers waving Jewish flags.

Participants in Sunday’s march can be seen waving Palestinian flags in a video posted by the Windy City Times, a newspaper serving Chicago’s LGBT community. Marchers also waved Mexican, Puerto Rican and rainbow flags, and chanted “No pride in occupation, no pride in deportation,” according to the newspaper. The march this year was explicitly “a very pro-Palestinian event,” according to the Windy City Times.

Last year, three women were ejected from the Dyke March for waving rainbow flags emblazoned with Jewish stars. Critics accused the march of anti-Semitism, and one woman at the march wrote on Facebook that “Removing those flags, and the people who marched with it, shows a deep level of ignorance, and yes, it also shows antisemitism masquerading as liberal values.” One of the ejected women, Laurel Grauer, works for A Wider Bridge, a pro-Israel LGBT group.

“People asked me if I was a Zionist and I said ‘yes, I do care about the State of Israel, but I also believe in a two-state solution and an independent Palestine,'” Grauer said last year. “It’s hard to swallow the idea of inclusion when you are excluding people from that. People are saying ‘You can be gay but not in this way.’ We do not feel welcomed. We do not feel included.” March organizers said last year in a statement that the women were ejected because they were pro-Israel while the march was explicitly anti-Zionist, and because of the Jewish star flag’s “similarity to the Israeli flag and the flag’s long history of use in pinkwashing efforts.”

Given the PLO puts homosexual people to death, I am not sure I understand this.

(Jewish Group) Jokes for Jews

Shlomo the tailor was a very successful tailor in London, England. He made formal wear for all the important royals, and even made Winston Churchill's suits during WWII. He did a great job, had a Royal Appointment, and was very well respected.

After many years of service, the Queen decided that he should be knighted for his loyal service, much to his joy and pride.

Shlomo, despite rubbing elbows with royalty for 50 years, was a humble and simple man. He had never been to an event where his fine suits were worn. So he asked a client what the proper procedure was. The client explained the dress, the process, and even the knighting ceremony to him. The hardest part was he had to memorize a phrase in Latin for when he was actually knighted.

He made himself a fine set of formal wear, got a good hair cut and beard trim, and set out to memorize the procedure and the phrase.

Well, the big day came. He and the other knights-to-be was taken to the castle in a carriage. Walked down the red carpet among all the beaming people, so happy to see him honored at last. He watched the honorees, kneel before the Queen.

They would each get down on one knee, bow, and she would touch his (or her, there were, indeed several lady knights) shoulder with the sword. They would say the Latin phrase. Then they would switch knees, she would touch the knight on the other shoulder with the sword, and they would arise, a Knight of the Kingdom.

Well, it got to be Shlomo's turn. He approached the Queen, got down on his knee, she touched his shoulder with the sword.

And he blanked on the Latin phrase. Completely blank.

Panicked, he said the first non-English phrase that came to his mind: "Barukh ata Adonai Eloheinu, melekh ha'olam, she'heheyanu v'kiy'manu v'higi'anu la'z'man ha'ze!"

The Queen then touched his other shoulder. Once again, Shlomo said: "Barukh ata Adonai Eloheinu, melekh ha'olam, she'heheyanu v'kiy'manu v'higi'anu la'z'man ha'ze!"

Puzzled, the Queen turned to her advisor and asked: "Why is this knight different from all the other knights?

TAMPA — Pedro Aguerreberry pedaled along New Tampa Boulevard on Sunday pulling his son Bennett in a trailer as his other son Lucas rode alongside them. As father and sons headed east on a paved bike path, a former star track and field athlete named Mikese Morse drove west in a Dodge sedan, Tampa police say. Morse didn’t know the family, but he decided at that moment to make the trio his target, police allege. Morse, 30, spun the Dodge around, crossed a lane of traffic, tore across a grassy easement and then sped up just before slamming into the father and two sons, according to police.

All three were taken to local hospitals. Pedro Aguerreberry, 42, was pronounced dead a short time later. Bennett, 8, was treated for a broken leg, and Lucas, 3, had minor injuries. Morse fled the scene of the mid-day Sunday collision and was arrested later on charges including premeditated first-degree murder and leaving the scene of a crash with death. He was held without bail at the Hillsborough County Jail.

Tampa Police Chief Brian Dugan said an account from a witness who saw Morse make the U-turn indicates that he intentionally mowed them down. But investigators were still working to answer a critical question: Why? "What type of person would purposely run over a family that was just bicycling down a bike path?" Dugan said at a Monday news conference. He said Morse seemed "disturbed" after he was detained, admitted to the attack but didn’t offer "a complete explanation" for his motive. Videos and other posts on Morse’s Instagram page — some of them apparently posted near the time of the crash and later that day — paint a portrait of a man unraveling, fixated on what he claimed to be the devil’s power over him. "I still will kill every single one of y’all on that motherf-----’s head right now," Morse said in a video posted Sunday. He appears to be walking along the edge of a wooded area while recording with his phone.

This appears to be a random attack by a man with known spiraling mental problems.

This time he chose a Dodge Avenger as his weapon, instead of a gun, but the end effect is the same.

In today's political climate there are very few areas of agreement, but this is the time we could get Republicans to spend more money on public mental health services, more money to make mental institutions decent places (as much as they can be), and more reasonable laws so dangerous people can be detained for their own and others safety.

I don't know if others remember, but our current practice of drugging the mentally ill and then setting them out in public with the false hope they take their medicine came about because of a bad combination of events in the 70s:

1. Drug companies with new drugs that lied about how effective they would be, to make money;
2. Republicans refusing to spend the money to make mental institutions humane places;
3. Scaremongering TV from idiots (chiefly Geraldo Rivera, believe it or not) that made the bad mental institutions look like horror novels;
4. Well-meaning, but misguided, public activists who filed lawsuits to get people out of terrible mental institutions (supported by money and fake experts from not-well-meaning drug companies).

We now know better; and this is literally the ONLY thing I think we can get Republicans to act reasonably about.

Food Truck Worker Hurls Bottle, Racial Epithet at Black Woman

Food Truck Worker Hurls Bottle, Racial Epithet at Black Woman After She Tries to Pay With Change: Report

The Root

A black woman in Oregon was allegedly called out of her name and assaulted by a food truck owner, all because she tried to pay for her food with change. According to Willamette Week, Carlotta Washington says she was called a “nigger” by Islam El Masry after she tried to pay for her lunch with quarters (not pennies, mind you).

In a short video provided to the outlet by a bystander, El Masry can be seen telling Washington to “get the fuck out from here” and calling her a “stupid bitch” after throwing a Gatorade bottle at her for confronting him.
In a portion not captured on video, Washington says, El Masry sprayed her with Sriracha, which was confirmed to the news outlet by witness Rachel Good, who said that she found Washington’s shirt, face and shoulders covered with the Thai hot sauce.

“It was in my eyes and all on my skin. It was burning terribly,” Washington says. After Washington asked that police be called, El Masry was booked into Multnomah County jail on charges of misdemeanor harassment and assault. Bail is set at $4,000.
