Are US embassies really defying the State Department on flying gay pride flags? NOPE

Contrary to headlines and reports, the US State Department says that US embassies around the world are not in defiance of a rule set by Pompeo about flying LGBTWhatever flags:

In other words as long as the ‘pride’ flag is not on the flagpole, where only the stars and stripes belong, the State Department doesn’t care.

So when you see fake news headlines like the one below, just ignore them:



I wish the rule was far more broad so that no pride flags could be flown on the premises of our embassies. But it’s not and I’m just setting the record ‘straight.’

Meanwhile, speaking of ‘straight’, all of these gay pride activists are getting hot and bothered over the fact that some are wanting to hold a ‘straight pride’ parade in Boston. The parade itself doesn’t bother me, but what does is who they’ve chose their marshal to be:

You’ve got to be kidding. If you had me at all, you lost me when you chose Milo.

Also, as a friend of mine points out, this is their equivalent of ‘I have a black friend’.

    1. It’s a troll Shadows. They’re doing it to piss the progressives off. Anything to do that, I’m for it.

  1. Right, I can just see the American embassies in Middle Eastern countries flying the gay pride flag.

    As to choosing Milo for the “straight pride parade” I agree with you Scoop. Yup, see my black, hispanic, gay or whatever friend over here. Ain’t I woke?

  2. One of the hallmarks of 3rd, 4th, and 5th world countries is the way government offices and official buildings are used to advance political agendas.

    Before 2001, Mexican government buildings were painted all over with PRI (Institutional Revolutionary Party) symbols and slogans prior to each election. In the Philippines, district and Barangay offices are decorated with election banners, flags, and posters all year round for the chairman. Worse, every taxpayer structure is permanently adorned with the name of a the Barangay chairman. Most of it is little more than monuments and permanent ads for the corrupt politician.

    Government should be neutral on controversial and political issues. If Congress wants to make June 9th brown-nosed Wombat day, fine. But there should be no wombat flags, banners, or posters on government buildings. Politicians can take positions or express opinions, the government should not.

  3. Flying a homosexual flag ANYWHERE on U.S. government property should be banned – it’s a damned disgrace! And to light up the White House in rainbow colors should have been grounds for firing that jackass. This is a horrific development and it’s getting worse!

  4. One of the 4 countries American Embassies wanting to raise the gay pride flag is Germany. I support Grennell (sp) all the way as the American Embassador, but, he is openly gay, and knows that Angela Merkel has allowed her country to be overrun with Muslim immigrants. How ever does he think that would work out? I can only imagine.

  5. It’s interesting that some that I believe to be libertarians are questioning why Pompeo is going against Trump’s support for the LGBTXYZ community in not allowing the gay pride flag to fly at some US Embassies. I believe those tweeters are still in the closet gays.

  6. I don’t really have a problem with Milo heading the “straight pride” parade. The whole thing is a joke poking fun at the gay pride parades and it’s driving the left nuts. Milo doesn’t support shoving their agenda down our throats and neither do a lot of other gay people.

    The organizer is something like “Super Happy Fun America”. I think they’re just poking fun at the whole parade thing.

    1. I drive for one of those ride share companies and was driving last year at the gay pride parade and I’m surprised some people weren’t arrested for indecent exposure! I meal literally letting it all hang out in public!!!

      1. @rednca I think in some places it’s legal….pretty sure anyway. Those groups don’t care anyway.

      2. @rednca That didn’t happen to be in San Francisco did it? I was reading that they allow nudity at events if the organizer doesn’t mind.

  7. You can be sure that now that they’ve clarified that it’s about where the American flag is flown – leftists are going to push to fly a rainbow flag on the American flagpole. You can’t just show nominal support for human/lgbtqxyz rights. You have to virtue signal that those rights are the most important thing in the world.

    1. And yet you STILL can’t show me one ONLY EFFING ONE thing in the physical world that works using the gay concept! Can a bolt fasten something together using another bolt? NO! Can a female plug, plug into another female plug and make your computer work? NO! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WORKS USING THE GAY CONCEPT AND THAT INCLUDES HUMANS PERIOD! Oh and BTW if you don’t believe me then take a look around where you are right now and show me JUST ONE thing that is working or is fastened together using the gay concept? You can’t because it doesn’t exist!!!

          1. @rednca Yeah, I read that California allows each city to determine if they will allow nudity at parades and whatever.

              1. @rednca No doubt. It’s probably because of who wants to do it. The gays and the freaks and that’s who liberals cater to. I don’t get why anyone would even want to do it.

  15. Embassy workers shouldn’t be flying huge homosexual pride flags outside of embassy buildings. It’s still something that needs to be addressed by Pompeo.

    1. It’s a troll Shadows. They’re doing it to piss the progressives off. Anything to do that, I’m for it.

  16. Milo is there purposefully to mock the whole idea of a gay pride week by the equally ridiculous straight pride week with a gay mascot. He and the organizers are doing this in a purposely satirical manner.

  17. The whole thing is stupid. Gay pride, straight pride, all of it. Just stop!
