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.”

The Windy City Times — whose masthead featured Hammond as a senior writer until a week ago — now describes her as  “senior account executive.”

Looking to Increase Israeli Ventures, India Bids for Offshore Exploration Rights in Mediterranean

The Algemeiner approached Hammond after a reader pointed out that her role at the Windy City Times had been abruptly switched. The reader said in an email that Hammond’s reporting had been blamed by the march organizers for the ensuing controversy, and went on to express “disgust” and “outrage” that Hammond had “been bullied and attacked” by individuals associated with the march, sometimes in an “antisemitic” manner.

Tracy Baim — the publisher and executive editor of the Windy City Times — told The Algemeiner she could not discuss the specific charges around Hammond.

“I cannot comment on our people, but know that we stand by our reporting on our stories,” Baim said by telephone from Chicago.

Pressed on whether she stood by Hammond’s reporting of the Dyke March controversy specifically, Baim answered affirmatively. “I was the one who edited the story,” she added. Asked why Hammond had not filed a byline for the paper since June 28, Baim had no comment.

Hammond joined the Windy City Times as a reporter in 2013 and won the 2016 National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association Award for Excellence in News Writing. This year, Hammond was a finalist for the second time for the Lisagor Award, which honors journalists in Chicago.

Hammond came to national attention in 2016 when she saved the life of one of her readers by donating a kidney. “This current and particularly ugly electoral cycle has been fueled by the politics of conceit,” Hammond later reflected in a column for the paper. “So it is easy to forget that, even if you don’t have the resources of a wealthy philanthropist, it is more important than ever to help someone in need and, in so doing, change their world and, as a consequence of that action, the world as a whole for the better.”

In her initial report on the march, Hammond quoted a member of the Dyke March Collective explaining that the Jewish women had been removed because their flags “made people feel unsafe” and that the event was “anti-Zionist” and “pro-Palestinian.” On June 28 — in her last article for the paper — Hammond conducted an extensive interview with Dyke March Collective activist Alexis Martinez, who was given ample space to present her argument that the march was “anti-Zionist,” and not “antisemitic.”

During the interview, Martinez accused the Windy City Times of having “failed in its journalistic mission” for allegedly not contacting her before the paper revealed the removal of the Jewish women marchers.

Asked by Hammond whether the march organizers would apologize, Martinez said: “We did nothing wrong. Those people who are asking us to apologize need to come up with facts. They need to have been there, on the ground and involved in the situation to have some validity.”

  • Completely agreed.

    Activists are ironically often very lazy.

    “Groupthink”

  • HOUDINIJEDI

    I’ve read through the comments and I can break it down into two of the more common variants:

    Some (not all) who identify as conservatives accusing everyone who holds progressive views as neo liberal fascist anti Christian, anti sematic pro ISIS ideologues. Clearly everything progressives stand for must be a conspiracy to destroy Isreal and America and usher in a Soviet style socialist totalitarian state

    Some (not all) who identify as progressives accusing everyone who holds conservative views as as Zionist homophobic islamaphobes who wish to usher in a Christian Corporate Theocracy(tm) where Trump reins as president for life and deports all the brown people to Siberia.

    To be sure I’m using a touch of hyperbole for emphasis, but have I captured the basic sentiments/feelings of these forum posters well enough to have a discussion? Yes? Good, can we have a little chat now? Well, ok I’ll be honest I’m about to challenge you and it will probably anger you. Good. At least you will be thinking critically instead of sitting in your comfortablely safe bias bubbles.

    Holding up Isreal’s right to exist as a nation for both political , religious and historical reasons doesn’t mean the label Zionist should apply a label intended to imply that anyone who supports Isreal at all must somehow not be capable of having any moral judgements about actions/policies the nation may have implemented in its recent history that may be emotionally understandable but are disastrous to the middle east peace process. This notion that if you support Isreal at all you automatically must support Isreal’s occupation in the west bank, or are opposed to the two state solution borders on absurdity. But who has time for nuanced discussion when its so much intellectually easier to decry that flying the flag of Israel must make you a wholesale “Zionist” and that moderate or even liberal voices within support of Isreal certainly must not exist. Which is of indeed very easily falsifiable. That is the trouble with labels and generalizations, they are based on assumptions, and you know what they say about assumptions. (they make an ass out of you and me).

    On the other side, calling people who express concerns about Isreal’s foreign policy, particularly where it comes to its dealings with Palestine, it does not automatically follow that they are anti sematic. You can be ok with Jewish people and not be ok with Isreal’s attempts to suppress a Palestinian state.

    Both sides of this debate would do well to assume people are not 100% one way or the other and do well to avoid labels like Zionist or Anti-semetic unless you have actual proof. Guess what folks. Despite the ease of making comments on the internet. The burden of proof required to make either of those labels stick on someone, is much higher then you can possibly do on a internet forum where human beings are people you know personally, not just anonymous pseudonyms in ASCI text.

    So refrain from it wherever possible. If you want to have a serious nuanced discussion instead of your typical internet/reddit style flame war. Perhaps I’m expecting too much from people. Again its so much easier to just post angry tirades.

    I should know.. this post has a flavor of tirade of its own. It certainly comes off a touch smug. I admit that. But someone had to be the 800 lb gorilla in the room telling people to knock it off and play nice.

    Any Left-wing Media source that proudly deems itself to be more “progressive” than God deserves to be publicly called out when they are caught with their pants down aiding the forces of bigotry, whatever the sexual orientation of the bigots might happen to be. Articles like the one above are important because they unmask the perpetrators and purveyors of intolerance and injustice who hide behind the political Halloween masks of their own bemoaned victimhood. I wish Gretchen Hammond good luck in her future endeavors. .

    I do not understand why so many of the comments here exhibit schadenfreude (pleasure derived by someone from another person’s misfortune) at the fact Ms. Hammond is being attacked by the left. I do not know whether she is gay or not and it does not matter to me but those who claim she is and therefore express pleasure at her fate are the lowest of the lowest.

    Sure, I agree this reeks of Leftist pique.

    • Melvin Gaines

      This sounds like coercion to me. That is actionable, but if HR at the paper is a joke, she is wise to keep her head down. Also, if she is in a sales position, they can use poor sales as an excuse to let her go in the future. Not good.

    • CA Grandma

      who has the power to censor your thoughts or opinions. If that is what a job means, lose it as fast as you can. Then sue.

    Freedom of the press commie style. Regulate, intimidate, remove…….

    And wonder why we do not trust you. But on the other hand she may have done something

  • Her journalistic integrity runs deep…right up to the point of keeping her job and her mouth shut. The modern press at its finest.

    I hope this is a wake up call for Hammond and others like her. The left, in any country eventually turns fascist, and if you don’t march to their tune, they will silence you, one way or another.

  • Prelusive007

    Leftwingnuts are loyal to each other because they all support the other’s cause and needs. The lezbos support the gueers … the gueers support the trannys… the trannys support the bi…. the bi support the murdering abortionists…. the abortionists support the would-be ‘mothers’ who instead, want to kill their unborn … and those mothers support the lezbos…. and it goes round and round like a leftwingnut circle jerk with politicians like Barack, Biden, Hillary, Pelosi, Reid, et al right in the middle of it and giving them the means to accomplish whatever their particular perverted thing is du jour.

    In this particular story above, we read of how they turn against each other. The “sub set” if you will. It’s not enough to be a “woman” to participate in the dyke run. You must be further ‘qualified’. You must not be a certain “religion” or background as is the case here with the supposed Jewish woman. It’s a great example of how the liberal left eventually eats itself and continues Barack’s “divide America” mission.

    Reporter removed for telling the truth which went against the prevailing dogma of the virtue signalling class of today.

  • patrick1984

    The Left has been anti-semitic for a very long time, and all of the radical feminist/LGBTXYZ/blah-blah movements are politically leftist before anything else they may purport to be. None of this should therefore be a surprise; it’s just business as usual in Hateland.

  • JoeCubano

    No surprise. She must be made to fall in line and only report stories approved by the left.

    Ah yes…..again we witness those tolerant libs and gays.
    Maybe Ms. Hammond should pull a page from the gay handbook and sue the Organizers and her employer. After all, if they can get a quarter mill for someone not baking a cake, she ought to be able to really rack up!

    Why is it that minority communities connect themselves with the BDS? Or student groups? The “Palestinians” were Jordanians. They left for purely financial reasons and to foment the destruction of Israel, the only Jewish state in a region of Muslim states. The entire concept is the elimination of the Jewish state and therefore anyone or anything in support of so-called Palestinians are, by definition, anti-Jewish. Case closed.

The Congressional Black Caucus is another left wing group that has shown it’s antiquated racist attitudes toward, not just Israel, Jews in general.

      The liberal left is not the same as the “progressive” left, which you are trying to lump together for your own nefarious purposes. On the other hand, Republicans in Congress universally lack the courage to impeach #45, who is a racist, a pedophile, a misogynist, a corrupt businessman and a megalomaniac whose campaign (and, maybe, he himself) colluded with the Russians to steal the presidency for mutual financial benefit. Stephen Bannon is part of his government and influences US policy, while the far left is part of a fringe.

    • Obazervazi

      Let’s go over the definition of Fascism, shall we?

      Radical Authoritarian Nationalism

      Nationalism: the most common form of nationalism among Fascists is called ultranationalistic palingenesis. It is the idea that one’s country used to be the best in the world, but has fallen on hard times of corruption and moral decay, and must be saved through a return to the old ways. In short, “Make America great again.”

      Authoritarianism has three parts:

      Emphasis on strength and submission: Tell me, in the previous election, which party’s candidate frequently called their opponents weak? Who was put up as a strong leader who was willing to do what must be done to put our country back on the right track?

      Aggression toward the out-group: This one’s a bit of a toss up. Liberals are aggressive toward bigots, particularly conservative Christians. Conservatives are aggressive toward women, gays, blacks, immigrants, Muslims, transgender people, the poor, etc. Both are aggressive toward Jews.

      Conventionalism: Appealing to Tradition to define morality. Good luck pinning this on Liberals.

      So all in all, even with the most generous of concessions, Liberals only meet 3/5 of the criteria of Fascism, while the modern Republican Party meets all five.

      Also, just ask your local KKK member if he is a conservative Christian; the answer might surprise you.

      Finally, if you were really in any danger from liberal thought police, you would have received much harsher consequences than a strongly worded reply by now.

    Been following this story. The distinction between anti-Zionist and anti-Semitism is undoubtedly the most telling and disturbing aspect of this story. Imagine if an opposing faction made the distinction between anti-Islamic and anti-Palestinian. Arguably, most muslims are pro-Palestinian as most Jews are Zionist. So, it’s wrong for a Jew to support their generational homeland but appropriate for a Palestinian to support theirs?

    One word: PROPAGANDA

    This situation seems fairly straightforward, Ms. Hammond was removed from her reporting job because the “Collective” complained to the paper. My guess is they made an accusation the paper is “investigating” and she’s not going back to reporting until that action is complete, if ever.

    In a police state – as well as in a world dictated by PC and other anti-freedom pressure movements – the Truth is the first to suffer. And Ms. Hammond, rather than even THINKING “PC,” just wrote the truth about that very UGLY & BIASED “Dyke Parade,” thus shedding light on a very disgusting Truth about far leftists and the so-called “Gay Agenda.” It’s nothing more than a symbol of subversive communism – and NOTHING GOOD WHATSOEVER comes from THAT!!

The LGBT community will quickly exhaust all their political and sympathy capital having embraced anti Semitism and don’t give me any of that rubbish about anti-Zionism, trying to sugar coat their extremism. Palestinians embrace terrorism , pay bounties for killing Jews and happily target children and the elderly. They are also Islamic and gays are of course, treated so well by that political ideology. Marxist fellow travelers sure are a lot like dogs , transferring fleas when they get up.

    Jewish people and gay men are no longer part of the social justice warrior bottom stack. Jewish people and gay men are now on par (in the minds of social justice warriors) with straight white cisgender men. Gay women, however, are further up the stack. Therefore, it is not allowed for gay meh or jewish people to criticize or report negatively in any way whtsoever on gay women (the same way straight white cisgender men would not be allowed).

  • Blinknone

    I see victim blaming is alive and strong in Chicago. How sad and pathetic.

    It reflects badly on the Windy City Times that it’s management, rather than supporting Ms. Hammond’s sharp-eyed, intelligent reportage, chose to cavil to whatever might be politically correct in Chicago. There must be many publications with sufficient integrity (i.e., spine) to accommodate an honorable journalist like her.

    Gretchen Rachel Hammond is a rare soul and one of G*d’s unique gifts to mankind. Anyone who gives a critical part of their body to an almost a complete stranger is closer to G*d’s love of mankind than almost all living mortals. As a point of comparison, Mother Theresa was buried with both of her kidneys. The fact that the Windy City Times would take this rare soul and talented journalist and bury her in the sales department speaks volumes about the complete depravity of what passes for Main Stream Media in the US.

As for the Dyke March, I’m sure the lot of them couldn’t point out which sand dune any of their tears are being wailed out in support of. On the other hand, they might be pointed out should they choose to March there. In one country they’d leave with their life. Those idiots.

    The cognitive dissonance of the LGBTQWERTY militants never ceases to amaze me. Theme your march as “anti-Zionist”, when Israel is the only state in the Middle East that protects the rights of homosexuals. The also theme it “pro-Palestinian”, while Islamic states like Palestine are tossing your kind off of tall buildings.

    You can have an LGBTQWERTY march in Tel Aviv. Good luck trying to have one in Ramahalah.

  • domdavid

    Expect no less from media outlets that support the identity politics agenda advanced by Intersectionalists. Here, I define Intersectionalists as members of a heterogenous collection of agitated and paranoid individuals who bond together in the shared belief that they have failed to thrive in life through no fault of their own, but because they are victims of an establishment that has disenfranchised and discriminated against them. Intersectionalists generally are vague about the precise composition of the establishment. Typically, any person or any group that challenges the self-serving claims of an Intersectionalists is either a member and/or tool of the establishment. Oddly, however, Jews and Israelis, regardless of their individual political and social views, are held by the Intersectionalists to be part and parcel of the establishment. This certainly seems odd. Indeed, considering the lachrymose history of the Jews and the current day geopolitical isolation of Israel, it would appear, on face, to be both irrational and illogical to classify Jews or Israelis as part of any establishment. Notwithstanding the illogicality of the Intersectionalist take on Jews, their adoption of anti-Semitic tropes is not unexpected. Intersectionalists are rabble-rousers, no more no less. Since scapegoating Jews has proved over the centuries to be a highly effective tool in the hands of demagogues, why wouldn’t the Intersectionalists make use of it today? Offending Jews or putting some of them at risk is not a consideration. Indeed, anti-Semitism is of no concern for Intersectionalists. To the contrary, they’re all for it although they do prefer to describe it as anti-Zionsim.

    Moments such as this remind me why I left the Left. Simply grotesque behavior by supposedly tolerant people.

    Muslims Jihadis, Liberal Jewess’, and Rainbow degenerates eating their own. Delicious!

    Liberal writer writes the truth, other liberals get triggered, try to destroy career of liberal writer. Shorter by-line “Sometimes you just aren’t liberal enough”.

  • Gorba

    Windy City Times – Nice way to shut down free speech. Also now we know that the LGBTQ community is no different than ISIS. This is not the first group they have “banned” from their activities. Just recently the Conservative LGBTQ groups were also banned by these radicals.

    Leftist PC policing to the rescue!!

    What a difficult time to choose which card to play: gay, gender, race, etc.

    Just another case of rampant yellow journalism. The plague continues to spread.

    Ahh tolerance.

    Truth is treason in an empire of lies.

  • Jen

    Thats Facism for ya!

  • Justin Tyme

    So, it’s OK to be anti-semitic if you’re gay? The lefty dem’s need to publish a rule book. It’s fun watching the PC culture eat itself.

  • cbusa

    The Windy City Times bills itself as “the Voice of Chicago’s Gay, Lesbian, Bi, Trans, and Queer Community Since 1985.” Do they include the voice of all LGBT Jews as part of their community, or do they also mandate a political litmus test that excludes supporters of Israel? Or are they simply capitulating after the fact to the browbeating tactics of the terror-supporting, anti-Israel activists?

  • Chia2015

    There has been a long told lie , told over and over again by the progressive left: “We of the progressive movement are all inclusive” …….as long as you agree with them and tow the party line

  • jimintexas

    This is funny… I a few years the jihadis will be throwing the dykes off the roof tops wherever the Democrats have surrendered neighborhoods to Sharia.
    The Irony of it all!

  • Wrabble

    Leftists are intolerant of divergent opinions.

    and 5000+ years of jewish hatred marches along …

    Liberalism is a mental disorder, example 1,000,0001+

    Imagine the lunacy, corruption, and decay that would be taking place now if the corrupt Establishment’s candidate, Hillary, had won.

  • cowboybob

    To some, the Israeli flag is offensive, just like in some schools, students can’t have American flags because it is considered to be racist. Some say to even complain about this is racist. I am not complaining, only reporting.

  • joe

    The left eating itself alive

  • David North

    Tolerant much? Hypocrisy thy name is progressivism.

  • Yes it is perfectly OK to be antisemitic now
    Just call it Anti-Zionism

    How many lesbians are tooling around in Subarus with the coexist bumper sticker? The one with the star of David as the x.

    She was punished for speaking the truth in typical left-wing fashion.

  • wmsteoopaaffwc

    Let’s see… 3 jewish supremacists, a dyke march, and a liberal trash reporter.
    What a shame this once-proud nation has become.

    Oy vey. The goyim know

  • loulai

    I hope Ms Hammond has a take-no-prisoners lawyer who will sue the Windy City Times for punishing her with “re-assignment”. Good for her for telling the truth-a rarity in the media- especially when it comes to the bigotry of “protected” groups such as LGBTQ.

  • enufizenuf

    For G-d’s sake, someone in Chicago give this woman a real job so she can quit the sexual identity politics at that so-called paper.

  • Art V

    WOW … just wow …

  • JeanneD

    Jewish gay women are not allowed to march in Gay Pride marches ?
    What an absurdity. !!!!! Gay women are prejudiced !!!! When will this end ????

  • Obviously they don’t stand by her reporting, if they have removed her from her duties like this.

  • Dean Winchester

    More of the neoDyke community intimidation – doesn’t sound much like equality to me.

  • Philbert McNutt

    Hard for progs to decide which victim group to side with, is that what I’m reading?

  • Stonewall’s Horse

    Which group are we supposed to feel sorry for?

  • Michael Green

    Good on you, Hammond! Don’t be deterred by (((them))) and their cronies! God bless you!

  • CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkey

    Reporting the truth will get you fired.

  • Albert

    Call The Windy City times and let them know how you feel. I am.

  • Sword of Honor

    Proof that craven ideological conformity, not truth, is the touchstone for the Media’s pseudo-liberal fantasists, who hope to appease the forces of bullying and prejudice, sacrificing integrity to buy an illusory peace.

    Europe tried it in the 1930s. It didn’t work. It never will. If we run, we will never stop running. We have to stand and resolve to face this. The one good thing about this sad incident is that the mask of moral rectitude is finally slipping off the hostile face of a familiar and ancient enemy, to the extent that the underlying hypocrisy will eventually be clear to all.

  • Lancelot Blackeburne

    Sounds like pure retaliation to me. The reporter went outside the party line and now the party is biting back.

  • That has GOT to be a dude.

  • Killing Independent George

    Gives the appearance that someone affiliated with the dyke march pulled some strings to retaliate against Hammond.
