This month is “pride” month for the LGBTQ crowd, allowing the radical left to take over and glorify a tiny percentage of the population.
U.S. embassies around the world have been requesting permission from President Donald Trump to fly rainbow “pride” flags on embassy flag poles like Barack Obama let them do. It was denied. Some of them defied orders and put the flag up anyway.
President Trump rejected all of the embassies’ requests and it has the mainstream liberal media in a frenzy. One of the more egregious headlines reads: “Trump Disgraces America By Refusing to Let Embassies Fly Rainbow Flags During LGBTQ Pride Month.” Of course conservatives have learned to flip what the media says upside down to get the truth.
Outrageously, many embassies are blatantly ignoring the official guidelines and flying the flag anyway. One diplomat was anonymously quoted saying “This is a category one insurrection.”
President Trump has made a smart decision here, United States embassies represent America and all Americans, not just the gay ones. Furthermore, American embassies should not be taking political stances either. “During the Obama administration, embassies had blanket permission to fly the flag.”
Evangelist Franklin Graham posted on Facebook:
“I want to thank President Donald J. Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for making the decision not to fly the gay flag over our embassies during June in recognition of gay pride month. That is the right decision.”
“The gay pride flag is offensive to Christians and millions of people of other faiths, not only in this country but around the world. The U.S. flag represents our nation—everyone—regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation.”
President Trump allowed any type of display the ambassadors wanted, as long is it wasn’t the rainbow flag on the main flagpole. NBC News reports,
“… the pride flag can and is being flown elsewhere on embassy grounds, including inside embassies and on exterior walls.”
Left-leaning media outlets neglect to mention that President Trump is the first president in the history of the country to enter office with a pro-gay marriage stance. Both Obama and Hillary ran on traditional marriage positions and then changed their minds for the next election.
At the beginning of June, President Trump tweeted,
“as we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals on the basis of their sexual orientation, My Administration has launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality and invite all nations to join us in this effort!”
The media hit-piece ignores all that,
“Trump is taking the United States ten steps back after the progress that took decades to achieve began to become a reality.”
Yet they fail to explain how preventing U.S embassies from flying a flag that has nothing to do with the United States does that. The big question on conservative minds now is, “what will President Trump do to punish the ambassadors who defied the order.”
As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals….
