U.S. embassies defying Trump admin by flying ‘gay pride’ flag: ‘This is category one insurrection’

By Jon Dougherty

The U.S. diplomatic corps, much of which hails from far-Left Ivy League institutions, has been the most defiant when it comes to obeying POTUS Donald Trump’s policies, as evident by the fact that several American embassies have hoisted the “gay pride” rainbow flag in defiance of the president.

After the Trump administration formally denied requests from multiple United States embassies to hoist the LGBT flag in honor of “Pride Month,” several of them, along with other diplomatic missions, are doing it anyway.

As reported by the Washington Post, several U.S. embassies are finding ways to either defy or show opposition to, the White House’s instructions:

The facades of the U.S. missions in Seoul and Chennai, India, are partially hidden behind large rainbow flags, while the embassy in New Delhi is aglow in rainbow colored lights. The website for the embassy in Santiago, Chile, shows a video of the chief diplomat raising a rainbow flag last month for the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.

The Vienna embassy’s website features a photo of a rainbow flag flying below Old Glory on a mast jutting from the building, a statement by Diplomats for Equality and a story about a professor lecturing on the visibility and growth of LGBT rights.

“This is a category one insurrection,” one anonymous diplomat told The Post.

Previous reports noted that a number of American embassies — in Germany, Brazil, Israel, and Latvia, among others — wanted permission to honor “Pride Month” by hoisting rainbow flags, but the White House denied the requests.

American embassies had received official instructions about honoring LGBT “Pride” events in the Obama administration, beginning in 2011, at the White House’s direction.

However, State Department policy was changed last year by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Despite the change, POTUS Trump became the first president to officially recognize “Pride Month.” He also has appointed two gay diplomats — Richard Grenell to Germany and Randy Berry to Nepal.

You know, because he’s such a bigot.

    And what if they wanted to fly the “Straight Pride” flag? What then?

  2. “As reported by the Washington Post, several U.S. embassies are finding ways to either defy or show opposition to, the White House’s instructions:”

    The article is flat out wrong or misleading at best.
    The D.C. advisory specifically denied only requests to fly rainbow flags from flag poles.  
    The advisory also includes: “Pride flags are still allowed to be displayed elsewhere in each facility.” 

    • But they didn’t have the guts to fly it in Saudi Arabia, as usual. Leftists just don’t like to offend some people.

    This does not represent the majority of Americans and is insurrection.

    We need to stop our government from dictating our beliefs and stop them from exporting homosexuality beyond our borders.

    There is NOTHING gay about homosexuality, just ask a million mothers crying at their sons deathbeds.

  4. This is total fake news, The President’s directives never said that the rainbow flag could not fly. This article is BS!

  5. President Trump should give a final warning and then fire the ambassadors for insubordination. Can’t have embassies running amuck. The State Department has been running its own fiefdom for decades.

  6. The late Bill Shakespeare said it best: “Much Ado about Nothing!”

    Ambassadors serve at the pleasure of the POTUS. They may be RECALLED at anytime and for any reason. There is a DEEP STATE proven by this open insurrection. Trump wanted to drain the swamp? This should include CAREER PARTISAN POLITICAL BUREAUCRATS that hate the USA and what she stands for in the original founding articles.

  9. It’s pretty obvious that the Left is not intimidated by the Right. Why should they be? They never pay a price for anything they do.

  10. Heads Must roll at F aggy Bottom.

  11. I know one of these people through an online MMO. He’s stationed in France and he’s exactly the same as those in this story. They have vowed to do everything they can to fight President Trump and hold out until he’s gone, when they plan to resume their socialist agenda.

  12. And so, Mr. Trump, is anyone losing their position? I’d like to see it.

  13. So what? Sanctuary cities and states are in open civil insurrection over immigration status and nothing has been done about that. So what would you expect freaks of nature?

  14. Trump. Pro LBGTQXYZ. Pro-Planned Parenthood. Anti-gun. Pro-islam. Has done nothing to slow the flood of illegal aliens into this country. Total sham. Playing moderates, libertarians and stupid conservatives like a fiddle.

  15. This post is in error. The State Dept denied embassies permission to fly the pride flag on the embassy flag pole. The Dept specifically allowed embassies to fly the pride flag in other embassy locations. Agree or disagree, but this has nothing whatsoever to do with any sort of “insurrection.”

    “rainbow” flags offend me …… pack them away.
    Where is the TOLERANCE for the belief systems that built the Civilization.
    Show me any successful, prosperous, homosexual civilization in all history..
    When the “alternate” lifestyle becomes mainstream,civilization DIES. The parasite cannot live without it’s healthy host body.
    Science is science. You can’t change your sex. You cant change biology because of emotions
    If you cannot NATURALLY bear and birth a child you are not a WOMAN.
    If you cannot NATURALLY fertilize an egg you are not a MAN.
    You can cut off whatever body part you want and change your pronouns. That Doesn’t change your DNA.
    They scream “tolerance” but they are INtolerant.
    They scream “HATERS” but look at their twisted faces and spittle dripping mouths.
    They scream “democracy” but they refuse to accept the will of the MAJORITY.
    There has been ZERO concern for the RIGHTS and FEELINGS of the NON-lbgtafd People, ALL they care about is THEM, So I see ZERO reason to give a Flying FIG about theirs.
    “The gay pride flag is offensive to Christians and millions of people of other faiths, not only in this country but around the world.

    • I agree with you completely. It’s time to restore this country back to normalcy again.

  17. A sane mind cannot understand this insanity.

  18. Remember that time when our gay Ambassador to Libya was kidnapped,raped and murdered?They did nothing to help them.
