Liberal Group Faces Backlash After Banning Jewish Symbols and American Flags from Event

An LGBT event in DC known as the “DC Dyke March” is now facing backlash after allegedly asking attendees to avoid displaying pro-Israel and other Jewish symbols.

Event organizers implied that the group wished to avoid displaying flags from “nations that have specific oppressive tendencies,” apparently in reference to Israel.

The group also indicated that American flags would not be welcomed, but flags representing Palestine would be.

Needless to say, the decision sparked growing outrage from a wide-sweeping range, prompting several pundits from various backgrounds to voice their disapproval on social media.

Many pointed out that, ironically, LGBT rights are protected in Israel, whereas the gay community faces routine persecution in Palestine.
