The Biden administration’s support of a disrespectful and inappropriate act by transgender activists who attended a pride event at the White House over the weekend raised more than just Gay flags.
The incident has sparked debate about what should be deemed appropriate behavior in the presence of children, as well as how to interpret U.S. Flag Code while celebrating LGBTQI+ families.
Footage posted to social media showed individuals going topless and fondling themselves in front of many children present on the South Lawn during festivities, prompting an official statement from a Biden administration official on Tuesday afternoon that condemned the behavior and said those involved would not be invited back to future events.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre also issued a statement, but defended her decision to hang both American and Pride/Transgender flags at equal heights in violation of U.S. Flag Code – yet another point of contention among conservative Republicans who feel that it was inappropriate for such an act to occur in front of minors while symbolically disregarding national regulations.
This incident serves as a reminder that liberals would rather force their disgusting ideology down America’s throats and then deal with the damage later.
Today, the People's House – your house – sends a clear message to the country and to the world.
