On the LGBTQ Pride Parade in Jerusalem Today:
With all my love and sorroy for Shira Banki, Z.L.,
and my utmost, absolute condemnation of her murderer,
Anybody with the slightest digression or dissent about the sacrosanct notion that LGBTQ community requires the dubious virtue of "pride", and who, with a loving, welcoming, empathetic heart, disagrees with even the minutest aspect of a boringly habitual carnival, or finds its absolutist sumum bonum premise misguided, is explicitly equated with the likes of Levinstein, Schlissel -imach shemo- or the latest villain, Nir Barkat.
LGBTQ activism has become Soviet style absolutism. You either enthusiastically applaud, or you will fall from grace, and will soon find you are no longer welcome in the party -in the double sense of the word-.
The fear and adulation that it generates are a mix of emotions and rationalizations, the calculation of being effusively queerily correct, so as to keep being part of a society which, regarding the LGBTQ community, has lost nuance, a capacity to listen, and self-criticism, not only the right to speak and the freedom to choose whether to attend.
It's using sweet, wonderful Shira Banki Z.L. as a martyr of the cause -she is, no doubt about it-, but used therefore as a shield of immunity against any dissent, affirming intolerance of nuance, Miss Universe facile clichés of "tolerance" and its Soviet-style extorsion to applaud. This is fascism, just like the national-religious one and the leftist pro-Palestinian one. It may be coated in sweet Shira posters and rainbow flags, but is as inquisitorial as Pravda.
