When I was growing up, I was taught that the U.S. is great. That the U.S. is a shining symbol worldwide and that people want to come to the U.S. because it’s a place worth coming to.
Now, there’s no question that the U.S. government has done things that most of us would find offensive once we learn about them (the Tuskegee syphilis medical study is one horrible example). Thinking well of our country doesn’t necessarily mean that we think well of our government and things that our government does.
There are certainly people who think that the U.S. government is representative of the majority of the U.S. population. Or, at least, political conservatives. Never mind that this isn’t even remotely true. What makes the thinking of these anti-American people even more disturbing, though, is that Joe Biden is clearly one of those people, now, as evidenced by how he has now sold out the U.S. State Department and embassies for virtue signaling political theater purposes. Libby Emmons writes,
Writing for Human Events, Jack Posobiec published the contents of a State Department memo showing that the Biden administration has authorized the display of BLM flags at state department buildings including embassies.
The memo states that “This cable constitutes a blanket written authorization for calendar year 2021 from the Under Secretary for Management (M) to display the BLM flag on the external-facing flagpole to any Chiefs of Mission who determine such a display is appropriate in light of local conditions.”
In an exclusive, Posobiec writes that the memo, shared by a source in the State Department, both “supports” and “encourages” the adoption of BLM propaganda and symbology for use in “diplomatic engagements with foreign audiences.
Just in case you’re wondering, the legal definition of treason, according to Cornell Law School, is:
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
So, allowing and encouraging the flying of flags supporting an openly Marxist organization that also calls for the destruction of America and, thereby, weakens the moral standing of the U.S. in dealing with other countries would seem to qualify as treason. Am I wrong?
Look, you don’t have to love America, and you may think that Marxism is the best thing since sliced bread (you and I will strongly disagree on that), but weakening the U.S.’s standing in international relations is inviting terrorism and aggression from other hostile nations. That would seem to be treason, and it looks pretty clear to me that Biden has committed it.
Yes, I’m angry about this, and you should be, too. Endangering the lives of Americans for political virtue signalling is completely unacceptable and must be stopped. If someone in Washington reads this, you must stop this insanity.
