AS ALWAYS, LIFE IMITATES THE ONION*:

● Shot: “Gay-Pride Parade Sets Mainstream Acceptance Of Gays Back 50 Years.”

—A classic Onion headline from April of 2001.

● Chaser: “In this statement, the progressive organizer of Chicago Pride parade says Jewish Pride flags are banned because they’re visually threatening.”

Commentary and Daily Beast contributor Omri Ceren of the Israel Project, as quoted today in a Twitchy post headlined, “TRIGGERED: Guess the country’s flag banned by tolerant lefties at Pride parade in Chicago.”

● Hangover: “Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wears Ramadan-themed socks at a church service before the Pride parade on Sunday.

—Caption of photo in article today at the Toronto Star, headlined, “Black Lives Matter joins Toronto Pride parade, despite not registering.”

As Mark Steyn wrote a decade ago, in the post-9/11 leftwing worldview, “our tolerance of our own tolerance is making us intolerant of other people’s intolerance, which is intolerable. And, unlikely as it sounds, this has now become the highest, most rarefied form of multiculturalism. So you’re nice to gays and the Inuit? Big deal. Anyone can be tolerant of fellows like that, but tolerance of intolerance gives an even more intense frisson of pleasure to the multiculti masochists.”

* The earlier, funnier, not yet totally in the tank for Hillary Onion, of course.

UPDATE: “Now, if only actual Muslims around the world can wear rainbow socks, then maybe we’ll get somewhere.”
