From 1982 to 1989, George P. Schultz was the Secretary of State for President Ronald Reagan. When new ambassadors were appointed, he briefly interviewed them. He would spin a globe, and ask them to put their hand on their country. Every one of them picked the country they were assigned–they failed–and Schultz explained America was their country.
It has long been understood ambassadors, and even foreign service officers, often “go native.” They begin to identify with the countries in which they serve, even represent that country’s interests over America’s interests. This is a particularly severe problem with D/S/Cs, who tend not to think well of America in the first place. A contemporary example is Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman (US Army, Ret.), who took it upon himself to inform foreign officials how to get the better of the President of the United States, then tried to do it himself.
But it was not until the Harris Administration—Joe Biden is merely the bait in the most corrupt bait and switch scheme in American history—any pretense of representing America’s interests was thrown overboard, as The Free Beacon reports:
A top foreign-policy adviser joining the Biden State Department has argued that white diplomats are often too ‘protective of the United States,’ a statement potentially in violation of new department guidelines.
Desirée Cormier Smith, a newly minted senior adviser in the Bureau of International Organizations, said in a podcast interview that white diplomats often treated visa applicants with hostility because of their ‘ownership’ over the visas during her experience as a foreign-service officer.
Translation: they’re not letting everyone and anyone into America for any or no reason. How dare they obey immigration law and look out for America’s interests?!
‘It seemed like many of our white colleagues approached the visa applicants with so much ownership over these visas. They were so protective of the United States, and they didn’t want anybody who could sully the image of the United States because it’s this perfect shining city on a hill,” she told the Black Diplomats podcast in October. ‘If you are a white foreign-service officer, coming from a very wealthy background, a two-parent household, never knew what it meant to struggle … you might automatically assume that there’s no way [an applicant] would use this visa properly.’
With the Harris administration, everything is race, and all white people are racist and xenophobic. What business do foreign service officers have looking out for the interests of the American people over non-vetted foreigners, particularly foreigners “of color”? Privileged, racist, nuclear family bastards! But the Harris Administration is going to fix all these historic, systemic inequities, and with a vengeance. It wasn’t until the rise of the first female, Indian/Black President-in-Waiting American embassies went full LGBTQWERTY, as Breitbart.com explains:
Outfront magazine reported on the development:
The Biden administration is off to a hopeful start, as Secretary of State nominee, Antony Blinken, has confirmed a recommitment to LGBTQ rights.
In a memo from July 2020, former Secretary of Defense Mark Esper released a list of flags permitted to be displayed at U.S. military bases. Missing from the list was the LGBTQ pride flag, which Esper compared to the confederate flag. Prior to the ban, embassies raised the flag during pride month on the official embassy flagpole.
During the hearing, Blinken also confirmed that he plans to appoint an envoy for the Human Rights of LGBTQ persons, a position created by Barack Obama in 2015 that wasn’t filled during the Trump presidency.
Blinken claimed violence against that demographic increased while Trump was in office.
‘We’ve seen violence directed against LGBTQI people around the world increase,’ Blinken said. ‘And so, I think the United States playing the role that it should be playing in standing up for and defending the rights of LGBTQI people is something that the department is going to take on and take on immediately. Raising the pride flag is one way to outright show LGBTQ solidarity.’
In other words, the LGBTQWERTY flag will fly alongside the American flag at our foreign embassies. I suppose we ought to be grateful they have—maybe?–condescended to fly that flag at least an inch or so lower than the systemically racist American flag. I’m sure you remember, gentle readers, Barack Obama painting—with light—the White House in LGBTQWERTY glory?
I do have one question for President-in-Waiting Harris: Are we also going to fly flags for every sexual orientation and/or fetish around? These people are oppressed too, and even more so around the world than in America. What about foot fetishists? Where’s their flag? Don’t we all have feet? And if we’re going to be oh so inclusive and diverse, where’s my heterosexual, old balding white guy flag? I demand my share of equity!
Pandering to sexual orientation is an affectation of advanced, wealthy societies. It’s a frivolous bit of virtue signaling affordable only to the comfortable, people who are post-religion, post-God, and post-Constitution, people who think themselves the self-imagined elite. They’re so much more intelligent and moral than the Deplorables they believe they are destined to rule. It’s their duty—their destiny–to force them to think, speak and act in the right, non-systemically racist, equitable ways. Such advanced beings do not believe in religious superstition; they make their own morality and reality and force others to live in it. They disdain not only those inferior to themselves, but their laughable, racist little symbols, like the cross and the American flag, which they practiced defacing at numerous demonstrations during their Ivy League college years.
For D/S/Cs, this is surely a delightful way of spitting in the faces of Deplorables, who are so unsophisticated and nativist as to honor symbols like the American flag. Unfortunately, our allies and enemies carefully watch America, and calibrate their foreign policy based on their observations. In much of the rest of the world, particularly the Muslim world, homosexuality of any kind is not only a sin, but one often punishable by death. Yes, I know homosexual sex and rape is common in some of these countries, but that’s not the issue here.
Our flag is a worldwide symbol of liberty. Our contemporary D/S/C protestors burn our flag, while Chinese protestors in Hong Kong and elsewhere proudly display it, not only because they hope to enlist our help, but because they recognize it as Humanity’s foremost symbol of freedom. Innumerable Americans have died, not for the flag, but for what it symbolizes.
Seeing a symbol of what much of humanity regards as sexual deviancy enjoying a place of honor with the American flag can only cause our allies confusion and pain, and encourage our enemies, who will surely see America as even more decadent and weak than they have in the past. China, Iran and Russia are already delighted with the Harris Administration, which in only a few weeks has badly damaged America, and helped enrich them, while making their intelligence operations against America far easier and more productive. China, for example, once again has unfettered access to our energy grid. What could go wrong?
That’s what that “rainbow” flag symbolizes to peoples who can’t afford America’s silly affectations. When our enemies think us weak, Americans and American allies die. But hey, you’ve got to have priorities!
