US Embassies Told to Fly the Queer Flag From the Same Pole as the National Cloth

Earning those virtue signaling points to be spent blowing up weddings

 

US embassies and consulates around the world are authorised to display pride flags, symbolic of the LGBTQ community, during Pride Month after officials announced a blanket authorization, confirmed Friday.

The decision from Secretary of State Antony Blinken allows the rainbow flag to hang on the same pole as the American flag during the month of June, according to The New York Times, citing a State Department cable.

The flags can be hung before May 17, International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, and stay up through the end of Pride Month, the cable instructs.

According to The New York Times, in the cable, Blinken noted that it was not a requirement and gave chiefs of mission the ability to “determine that such a display is appropriate in light of local conditions.”

In January this year during his confirmation hearing at the Senate, Blinken told lawmakers he would support the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning people, including allowing the pride flag at US embassies, appointing an LGBTQ envoy, and rejecting the findings of a Trump administration “Commission on Unalienable Rights” which human rights scholars saw as a threat to LGBTQ and abortion rights. An envoy is yet to be named.

Under the Trump administration, then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blocked US embassies from flying the Pride flag on the same pole as the US flag, saying the American flag should fly alone.

The New York Times further reported that State Department officials were told that when making decisions at their outposts to support LGBTQ rights, they should ensure that the policy of “do no harm” is followed in order to prevent a backlash against the local LGBTQ population.

Some embassies hoisted rainbow flags during Pride Month without authorization, The Washington Post reported in 2019.

Im extrmly curious, will they be flying the fag flags in places such as Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Afghanistan, Quatar, and all their pals that have Muslim kings? Or just in places such as Russia and China as a low bait?

Read the article again…you will find the answer…” determine that such a display is appropriate in light of local conditions.”

How come the Queer Flag as mentioned above is not brown and pink?
Or numerous shades and renditions of pink and brown.
Queens lyrics said it all, “Mud on your face you big disgrace.”
Then again Rap music is full of the “N” word.
It all stinks of hypocrisy.

bombing wedding parties in Afghanistan =amerikan morality
celebrating transgenderism and bdsm like 5th century Rome (the disappearance of “public virtue”)
“the last virtues found in an empire near collapse are tolerance and apathy”. Aristotle

It’s not the “Queer flag” it’s the “Fag Flag”. Not many care about homosexuals but everyone hates Fags as they are the jerks of the homosexual world, the ones who cause the hate.

I hope the residents of these other countries will do all they can to burn this disgrace up. The military is a joke. The gov’t is a joke. Maybe the goal is to kill the enemy by making them laugh to death. How long before they start draping the fag flag on the dead soldiers coffins instead of old glory.

FAKE TRANSGENDERS ARE LIARS. REAL HERMAPHRODITES ARE ONE IN SIXTY THOUSAND PEOPLE. PEOPLE WHO ARE MUTILATED BY SURGERY AND/OR SYNTHETIC HORMONES ARE NOT TRANSGENDERED. FAKE TRANSGENDER IS A
FOR PROFIT IDEOLOGY FROM SURGICAL/PHARMACEUTICAL CARTELS.
ONLY NATURAL PERSONS AS MEN OR WOMEN HAVE AUTHORITY IN CIVIL SOCIETY. SEXUALLY MUTILATED PEOPLE CANNOT PRODUCE OFFSPRING AND ARE NOT NATURAL PERSONS. NEITHER ARE CORPORATIONS PEOPLE.
FAKE TRANSGENDERED PERSONS DO NOT HAVE A RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN GOVERNMENT BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT NATURAL PERSONS.
