U.S. Veterans in Montgomery County, Maryland, were furious when the county government replaced its POW flag with the gay pride flag outside the county veteran’s park.
Another left-wing governmental body is bowing to the radical, left-wing gay lobby and disrespecting our troops in the process.
The Montgomery County Council’s first gay member, Evan Glass, celebrated the raising of the gay pride flag Monday morning at Veterans Memorial Plaza in Rockville, Maryland, according to NBC 4.
You read that right. The county’s gay council member decided that flying the gay pride flag outside the city’s veteran’s park was better than flying the POW flag!
It didn’t take long before the local veterans rose up in anger. None of them were all that upset that the officials wanted to raise the radical gay flag, mind you, but there were furious that a veretan flag was taken down outside a veteran’s park in order to raise the gay flag.
Naturally, and with good reason, the veterans felt like they were getting disrespected in favor of the radical gay agenda.
And they are 100 percent right, too.
Vietnam veteran John “Bill” Williams spoke out at the slight.
“When I was in Vietnam, I was there six days before two guys were missing in action, and they still haven’t found their bodies,” Williams said. And this is how the country treats him.
“I wasn’t happy about it at all because the park is supposed to be a veterans park,” Williams added. “People died. Now they took it down and put another flag up.”
The gay politician quickly began backtracking as soon as the backlash hit.
Councilman Glass claimed that the flag pole was the real problem. You see, it was only set up for one flag. So, naturally the veterans had to take a back seat for his gay agenda.
Glass promised to add another set of rigging to the pole so that two flags could be flown.
The fact that Glass felt that his radical agenda was more important than our veterans is all we need to know about him.
