Reporter demoted for covering anti-Semitism at lesbian march

From Ben Cohen at Algemeiner

An award-winning journalist who broke the story of the group of Jewish women ejected from an LGBTQ march in Chicago last month has been reassigned to non-journalistic duties at the paper which ran the original report, the Windy City Times.

Gretchen Rachel Hammond — whose June 24 story caused a national storm after she detailed how three women flying Jewish Pride flags embossed with the Star of David were instructed to leave the gathering by organizers from the Dyke March Collective — confirmed to The Algemeiner on Monday that while she was still employed by the paper, she was not presently engaged in its reporting and writing operations.

“At this time, I have not been fired from Windy City Times, but I have been transferred to working full time for the sales department,” Hammond explained in an emailed statement. “The reasoning is an internal matter and I have been instructed not to comment about it even to close friends. Given my present situation, I must comply with this instruction.” More.

Reality check: Whenever we vote for progressivism, we get more of it. And progressivism is now anti-Jewish. So when Jews vote progressive… See the problem?

    Unfortunate but not a single one of these gay Jewish activists can possibly say they no earthly clue what their cohort was about. No way it NEVER came up. They chose to ignore it until they were personally attacked. It was fine when all the other News were being attacked.
