Remember the rather prominent display of BLM flags clinging to various United States embassies around the world? Which occurred all of a week ago?
Apparently, the Biden administration, which has decided to focus almost entirely on a distinctively disunifying woke agenda, believes that it was appropriate to do so, in spite of the deep controversy BLM continuously attracts in the United States for its rather violent, extortionary tactics.
Nonetheless, apparently BLM-loving Biden and his admin all but instructed embassies to fly the BLM flags, hinting that types of displays would shortly follow, per commentary from an anonymous U.S. diplomat.
“We will need to see much more than BLM flags to signal the department is substantively bridging the disconnect between our domestic record on racial injustice and global rhetoric on human rights.” [Source: Foreign Policy]
Well, as usual, the Biden admin was serious about “substantively bridging” conflicts that leftists stir up in the first place, and, rather unsurprisingly, the administration soon began clamoring about flying flags for Pride Month within days of flying BLM flags.
Consequently, the U.S. State Department, which is presently being driven into the ground by Biden sycophant Anthony Blinken, apparently decided that giving “blanket written authorization” to fly rainbow flags at various U.S embassies all over the world.
However, a spokesman for the Department of Defense (DoD), John Kirby, effectively told the Biden administration thanks, but not thanks, with regards to involving ultra-leftist policies in the United States’ international affairs.
“After some careful consideration the department will maintain the existing policy regarding the display [at military bases] … There won’t be an exception made for the Pride flag. This in no way reflects any lack of respect or admiration for the LGBTQ+ community. This was really more about the potential … for other challenges that could arise from that exception.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
In other words, Kirby’s rather reasonably response stopped Biden’s “substantive” plans right in their tracks, and lefty snowflakes will undoubtedly be enraged to not see rainbow flags flying alongside BLM flags all over the world.
In all likelihood, Kirby will probably draw irrational comparisons to Trump or Trump’s allies as well.
For anyone who wants to claim that Biden is vastly more “progressive” than Trump, they should also keep in mind Trump’s actual words (not to mention his actions) themselves when levying such accusations.
For instance, one particularly sensitive tweet not only revealed Trump’s concerns for the LGBT community within the United States, but also abroad.
“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.” [Source: Fox News]
However, unlike Biden, Trump didn’t feel the need to “prove” how open-minded he is: His open-mindedness, not to mention his sound logic, is already evident in the actions he took as president.
Leftists, on the other hand, apparently need a screaming visual display for everything, given that all their behaviors tend to boast nothing but surface “appeal” to some; no real substance underlies anything they say or do.
Which is precisely why Candace Owens has assailed the display of BLM flags across the world.
“The U.S. embassies are celebrating black death. The consequence of the Black Lives Matter movement — and I cringe when people call it Black Lives Matter protests, because, you know what, Tucker, it is Black Lives Matter riots …
The cities burned for six weeks straight following the death of George Floyd. Black neighborhoods were rioted, they were looted and it led to more black death. Way more black Americans died during the Black Lives Matter riots than the one black American that was killed by a police officer that allegedly started this entire spree.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Nothing like a little logic to enrage leftists, which is undoubtedly the response Owens received. However, she’s been vindicated now after the DoD’s rather tacit refusal to follow Biden and Blinken.
With any luck, Kirby’s commentary on the DoD’s position on Pride flags will bring a smile to the faces of all those who wish for the United States’ nonstop partisanship to at least remain restricted within its borders.
