Flag Day and the New State Religion
Government “pride” displays arguably represent an “establishment of religion” because the gender movement has become a cult.
Yesterday was Flag Day, an annual occasion to celebrate Old Glory, the Star and Stripes under which men and women of every color and creed have served and for which many have paid the ultimate price. The American flag holds deep and profound meaning for millions of us, and we’re eternally grateful that it still stands for Liberty and justice for all.
That’s why we’re so outraged at how Democrats treat our flag nowadays. Perhaps their apparent contempt for Liberty and anything but two-tiered justice is why they treat it so poorly.
Joe Biden and his party use flags as political agenda rags. For example, Biden orders flags at half-mast every time there’s a politically expedient mass murder, though it is disgraceful to use the flag as emotional manipulation for pushing violations of our Second Amendment rights.
Worse, the display of pride flags from government facilities arguably represents an unconstitutional “establishment of religion.” Doubt that? Replace any of those pride flags at the White House or State Department facilities with a Christian flag and see what happens. Doubt that pride is a cult? Try speaking against the groomers who recruit new disciples in schools.
This past weekend, Biden hosted a pride celebration that predictably devolved into utter debauchery when a social media influencer decided to bear his surgically implanted female breasts on the White House
lawn strip club. He supposedly won’t receive any more White House invites, and the administration condemned behavior that “is not reflective of the event,” but it was exactly reflective of the prideful and hyper-sexualized movement Biden and crew were ostentatiously celebrating.
Ask the drag queens Biden and Co. think should be performing in schools.
During that event, two American flags were hung between columns at the White House, and they flanked the new “progress pride flag” — the garish eyesore of a banner that features the typical rainbow and additional colors, from the “transgender” pastels to black and brown to represent only some skin colors and also AIDS victims. It was designed five years ago by a guy who uses “xe/xym” pronouns and calls himself a “queer non-binary celestial object having a human experience.”
Many folks argued that Biden’s White House display was a violation of the law. According to U.S. Flag Code §7 (e), “The flag of the United States of America should be at the center and at the highest point of the group when a number of flags of States or localities or pennants of societies are grouped and displayed from staffs.”
Biden supporters claim “from staffs” is the operative phrase, and they note there was a U.S. flag flying atop the White House. Yet there’s no question the president and his prideful staffers violated the spirit of the law — and spat in the face of veterans and their families — all in service to the gender cult.
“The administration was proud, again, to display the pride flag,” said Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, whose only apparent qualification for the post she holds is that she’s a black lesbian represented by that pride flag. She added that she was “certainly not going to get into protocols” regarding the legality of the display.
By contrast, the House, led by Speaker Kevin McCarthy, honored Flag Day by hanging three American flags between its columns.
The Senate, under Chuck Schumer, was not so patriotic. No flags were displayed outside the Senate side of Congress. Likewise, most of the flags were gone from the White House on Flag Day.
Back to the idea of establishing religion. Yes, the First Amendment begins with some key words — “Congress shall make no law.” Displaying flags at the White House wasn’t based on a law passed by Congress, so no harm, no foul, right?
Not if you compare it to other displays or behavior the Supreme Court has ruled constitute unconstitutionally establishing religion.
We’re not trying to build an ironclad legal case here. We’re just making the argument that the Rainbow Mafia is the vanguard of a cult, and hanging this group’s insignia from government buildings is a bad idea.
The U.S. flag represents our nation and every citizen under its jurisdiction. Pride flags represent maybe 7% of the population and probably considerably less, all based on behavior or orientation. Even if you agree with the Left’s insistence that it’s about identity, not behavior, this is still a tiny minority, and that justification wouldn’t fly in virtually any other circumstance.
The only reason pride flags fly on government buildings is that leftists are religiously devoted to dividing Americans rather than uniting us under our national banner.
