Democrats Replace POW/MIA Flags for Transgender Flag This Last Week

 In opinion, Politics

This last week, some of the Democrats removed the POW/MIA flag by their offices and replaced it with a transgender flag to “protest” Trump’s transgender ban on military service. Though reportedly temporary, it was an act of disrespect. Some simply added the transgender flag, which was a better idea. They are calling this week, which happened to contain Vietnam Veterans Day, “TransVisbilityWeek.” Bad timing.

So what’s wrong with standing for something? Democrats have a nasty habit of standing “FOR” something at the expense of standing AGAINST something else- in this case, removing the POW/MIA flags in an extremely poorly timed “protest.” The flags were delivered to members of Congress by the “National Center for Transgender Equality.”

There are still 1,589 Americans listed as MIA – missing in action. Of the 2,500 Americans officially listed as Prisoners of War or Missing in Action, only 1,200 of them were ultimately found to be killed with no body recovered. The flag is a symbol of the missing in Vietnam. Yesterday, Vietnam Veterans Day, replacing those flags was an affront to the memories of those lost in the Vietnam War.

“On March 9,1989, a POW/MIA Flag, which flew over the White House on the 1988 National POW/MIA Recognition Day, was installed in the United States Capitol Rotunda as a result of legislation passed overwhelmingly during the 100th session of Congress. The leadership of both Houses hosted the installation ceremony in a demonstration of bipartisan congressional support. This POW/MIA Flag, the only flag displayed in the United States Capitol Rotunda, stands as a powerful symbol of our national commitment to our POW/MIAs until the fullest possible accounting for Americans still missing in Southeast Asia has been achieved.” USflag.org

Here are some of the legislators who either replaced or added the flag to the ones on display at their offices.

Politicizing the troops?

The House of Representatives passed a resolution on Thursday condemning Trump’s transgender ban. Rep Joe Kennedy called it “targeted discrimination,” according to Fox. It passed 238-185 along mostly party lines. It was a non-binding resolution. Five Republicans voted for the Democrat resolution: Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Trey Hollingsworth of Indiana, Will Hurd of Texas, John Katko of New York and Tom Reed of New York.

Next time Democrats want to stand for something, how about they stand for our military? They seem to be having confusion on that idea.Why did the National Center for Transgender Equality pick this week?

Her display without the POW/MIA flag was “temporary,” as she had the POW/MIA flag inside her office. “As a proud member of the @LGBTEqCaucus, I will do everything I can to make sure transgender people #WontBeErased by violence, fear or prejudice. I am committed to safety and equality for all. #TransVisibilityWeek”

          Many Great posts here. Anyone can show support for equality WITHOUT disrespecting others. As Lincoln said. “All are created equal”. And “all” can and should be shown respect. Unless you serve in the military your opinion on Trumps Ban is biased. You can still support either or both without degrading anyone.

          Riddle me this Batman…if the transgender movement is primarily about equality, what message is this sending? The politicians (Democrat’s) who took down the POW/MIA flag in favor of a transgender flag (no matter how temporary) are demonstrating favoritism, disrespect, and a complete disregard for those who are still missing and their friends and families. If their offices couldn’t afford to buy another flag stand, they should have dug into their deeply lined pockets and bought one themselves!

    This is unbelievable. The POW/ MIA flag should not have been removed by any means. It’s a disgrace to the families of prisoners of war and those missing in action and also a disgrace to the ones that was serving to protect our land. My God what has the United States become? Seems to me a bunch of spineless individuals who consider money over lives. It’s a shame that our forefathers has to look down and see what the United States is today. Everybody is offended by everything. You know if that was true back when United States was first founded we would never have a United States of America to begin with.

    I have no problem of respecting others, that is the American Way! But, at the same time I expect those that has fought for this country, died for this country and those POW/MIA’s, that has allow for the rights and freedoms to respect others to take priority and certain their respect for what they have done! And as for you Mr. Bernie Sanders, learn the Flag Code and teach your staff! Because the way your flags are displayed is WRONG! The American Flag comes first not second! Transgender people don’t come first to American people. We need to fully support our Armed Forces and it’s Veterans. It’s them that has allow you to have all this crazy bullshit go one!

    As a Commander of an American Legion post, I am appalled that so much disrespect is being shown to my fellow veterans. I have dedicated my life to helping veterans returned to society with no where to go where they feel safe. We have a program in place first veterans with PTSD and other mental and physical problems, our main focus is on preventing suicide and keeping families together. We veterans will not stand for this type of disrespect. I am a Vietnam era veteran, I served in the US NAVY from 1970-1976. I was a Boiler tech aboard a tin can. I manned the phones during combat, I’m no hero, I just did my job. Like most we were disrespted when we came home. I vowed then I would spend my life helping other vets. This flag is an affront to all who served and all the POW/MIA’S WHO never returned in all wars. Shame on the democrats for showing us no respect.

      It ‘s funny that this is just now showing up on facebook. As a veteran, 20 yrs U.S. NAVY, Desert Storm veteran, that those individuals who chose to replace the POW/MIA flag should not be reelected. It would have been MORE IMPORTANT to display BOTH flags as a protest to #45.

    There is no place for this flag in the halls of capital hill. They took down a flag that stands for the sacrifices of many a service man ans woman. Shame on everyone of you for this! I have no problem with anyone that once to live a gay life style, but I will never ever support that kind of life style. God clearly states he hates this kind of life.
    Leviticus 18:22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.
    Leviticus 20:13 If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.
    Romans 1:26-27: “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”
    1 Corinthian 6:9: “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind.”

    Is this what Congress means by respect for our troops…..spit on us during our time of service, this is NOT new, the government, and a lot of Americans spit on us upon our return.
    Inside LAX, I know for sure, GIs were getting spit on by civilians, I know, because I was one of those GIs upon my return, it was my shoes, but it was still “spit”….. American spit.
    How about showing that “RESPECT” again, for those 1500 plus men and women who have not returned home,
    One more thing Congress, try not to mess up again, most of those fallen could have been home, their families with some rest, after all these years. All three vehicles have the famous POW/MIA plates on the front bumpers,
    Where they will forever remain…. for those who might like to have one of these plates, just try Amazon, that is where I purchased mine.q
