'Violent History' of 'Zio': How Chicago's Dyke March Adopted an anti-Semitic Slur Dear to White Supr

'Violent History' of 'Zio': How Chicago's Dyke March Adopted an anti-Semitic Slur Dear to White Supremacists

The latest chapter in the Chicago Dyke March controversy unfolded late last week after the group walked back its use of the term “Zio,” a pejorative brought into prominence by former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke and often deployed by white supremacists.


The group had tweeted “Zio tears replenish my electrolytes” to mock concerns about the march’s banning of women carrying Gay Pride flags with the Star of David at the center. And the journalist who broke the story last month was demoted following pressure from the march’s organizers, says a close friend who was with the reporter at the event.


In any case, critics argue that the Dyke March’s apparent attempt to distinguish between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism was offset by the violence of the prefix-turned-epithet.


...snip....

When the Dyke March Collective was originally confronted with the controversy surrounding the term, it responded: “Wow, trying to compare a group of queer people of color to the KKK, so fucked up.”


The Chicago Dyke March Collective describes itself as “an anti-racist, anti-violent, volunteer-led, grassroots effort with a goal to bridge together communities across race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, age, size, gender identity, gender expression, sexuality, culture, immigrant status, spirituality, and ability.”

3. Ok, let's try being a little dan l'kaf zechus for a minute.

There are 2 possibilities. They are claiming they aren't antisemitic, so let's give them the benefit of the doubt and look at the other possibility.

The other possibility is they are just stupid people. Their social media is run by undereducated and inarticulate young hipsters who think if you shorten a word it's suddenly cooler sounding. So they used Zio instead of Zionist.

So that's your choice, Chicago Dyke March and supporters. You are either dumber than a sack of rocks or a bunch of antisemitic thugs. You can pick.
