After trumpeting its alliance with the radical, Marxist Black Lives Matter group by authorizing U.S. embassies to fly LGBTQ and Black Lives Matter flags, the Biden administration is getting backlash in the form of opposing legislation.
Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-N.Y.), has introduced a bill to prohibit political flags other than the Stars and Stripes from being flown outside U.S. embassies worldwide, according to The Blaze.
The Stars and Stripes Act of 2021 “directs the Secretary of State to restrict the display of certain flags or banners at diplomatic and consular posts around the world.
“It is inappropriate for President Biden and Secretary (Antony) 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,” Malliotakis stated.
“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,” Malliotakis said. “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.”
The bill also argues against endorsing Black Lives Matter because the openly Marxist group has called for “convicting and banning former President Trump from holding future political office” and “defunding the police.”
The legislation is being co-sponsored by House GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) and Reps. Ken Buck (R-Colo.), Michael Guest (R-Miss.), Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), Brian Mast (R-Fla.), and Pete Sessions (R-Texas).
