Democrats Diss the Troops: Dump POW/MIA Flags for Transgender Flags

A growing number of Democrats in Washington D.C. have turned their backs on the troops by taking down their POW/MIA flags and replacing them with transgender flags.

This week, the Democrat raised flags celebrating transgenderism outside their congressional offices on Capitol Hill.

A group of Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, have eliminated their military flags in exchange for the pink, blue, and white transgender pride flag to protest the military ban on transgender soldiers, Fox News reported.

The stunt apparently came at the request of the “National Center for Transgender Equality,” Fox reported. The group released a statement claiming to have sent the trans flag to members of Congress with a letter asking them to be displayed to protest President Trump’s plan to exclude transgenders from serving in the military.

Members of the Senate also joined the effort, one being Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

“Discrimination has no place in our society. I am proud to display this flag as a symbol of my support for transgender people across the country. We must stand with transgender people in all of our communities,” Sanders tweeted this week.

Other Democrats who placed the trans pride flag outside their office includes Mass. Rep. Joe Kennedy, Washington Reps. Adam Smith and Kim Schrier, Ohio’s Tim Ryan, and Virginia Rep. Jennifer Wexton, among others.

President Trump’s ban on transgenders in the military remains mired in the courts, but the U.S. Supreme Court recently allowed the ban to continue despite a lower court’s ruling to put a halt to the ban as lawsuits against the policy wind their way through the system.
