Looks like Anthony Blinken is yet another one of Biden’s partisan picks, given that Blinken unwisely decided that it would be a really good idea to fly the BLM flag alongside the American flag at various U.S. embassies worldwide.
And, as unbelievable as this decision may sound, sightings of American flag have appeared alongside the flag for BLM, an organization that routinely calls for the death of police and general chaos in society.
Great way to “unite” the country, Biden.
Of course, Biden’s lackey Blinken had an effusive justification for why the BLM flag must be supposedly flown, in spite of all the controversies that BLM has rightfully found itself mired in over the past several days.
“On the anniversary of George Floyd’s murder, we remember that to be a credible force for human rights around the world, we must face the reality of racism at home … By addressing our shortcomings openly and honestly, we live up to the values that we stand for worldwide.”
Want some “open” and “honest” dialogue, Mr. Blinken? How about the fact that Biden absolutely cannot stand the fact that African-Americans are free to choose their own political party, including the Republican Party, if that party aligns more directly with their needs?
Why are African-American conservatives, such as Senator Tim Scott and Commentator Candace Owens subject to absurd, and, at times, racist attacks from the media?
Of course, none of this commentary remotely factored into Blinken’s nonsense, which is precisely why Representative Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) of Staten Island has countered his lunacy with the introduction of the Stars and Stripes Act of 2021.
This legislation was initially motivated by Blinken’s poor decision to reveal the United States’ partisan policies to the world, which Malliotakis deftly noted.
“It is inappropriate for President Biden and Secretary Blinken to authorize and encourage the display of inherently political flags that are in no way affiliated with the U.S. Government over American embassies overseas.” [Source: The Blaze]
In addition, Malliotakis also gave Blinken and the Biden administration a bit of a crash course into what the American flag really symbolizes to most of the world, though the anti-American, ultra-leftist media in the United States quite clearly has a burning desire to shield this reality.
“The American flag is a beacon of freedom and hope for oppressed peoples around the world; it should be the primary flag flown above our embassies and that is what my legislation seeks to accomplish …
The Administration’s directive is an insult to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our flag and our nation — especially as we head into Memorial Day weekend — and it is absolutely ridiculous that legislation is needed to correct this issue.” [Source: The Blaze]
Absolutely ridiculous indeed.
What’s even more ridiculous is Biden attempted to crush a “Rolling to Remember” motorcycle rally, a rejection that further revealed this administration’s extremist views.
However, perhaps what is the most galling of all is the fact that former BLM founders and the families of individuals who lost their lives in police shootings have started openly assailing the organization.
For instance, Rashad Turner, who founded the St. Paul, Minnesota chapter of BLM, proclaimed that he started the chapter to promote “quality education” and “success for our children in our communities”; unfortunately, in spite of Turner’s bright aspirations, he soon learned that BLM cares little for the real improvement of black lives.
“After a year on the inside, I learned they had little concern for rebuilding black families, and they cared even less about improving the quality of education for students in Minneapolis …
I was an insider in Black Lives Matter. And I learned the ugly truth … The moratorium on charter schools does not support rebuilding the black family. But it does create barriers to a better education for black children. I resigned from Black Lives Matter after a year and a half. But I didn’t quit working to improve black lives and access to a great education.” [Source: The Blaze]
While Mr. Turner’s words should be blared across every fictional news network that claims to care about black lives, his words, thus far, appear to be largely relegated to conservative media outlets.
You know, the types read by the so-called “privileged” in the United States.
Oh the irony …
Even worse, the families of individuals who lost their lives to a police shooting have also come out swinging at BLM, going so far as to claim that the organization was merely enjoying personal profits off of very real tragedy.
For instance, Samaria Rice and Lisa Simpson, who both lost sons, released a joint statement that revealed exactly what they thought about the real intentions of BLM.
“We never hired them to be the representatives in the fight for justice for our dead loved ones murdered by the police … The ‘activists’ have events in our cities and have not given us anything substantial for using our loved ones’ images and names on their flyers. We don’t want or need y’all parading in the streets accumulating donations, platforms, movie deals, etc. off the death of our loved ones, while the families and communities are left clueless and broken.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Meanwhile, clueless Biden and Blinken think it’s a great idea to fly BLM flags all over the world.
One can only hope that the “Stars and Stripes 2021” bill sails through the House and Senate with little resistance, though the highly pro-BLM Democrats are unlikely to support such sanity, not to mention sensitivity.
