Just when you think that the Democrats couldn’t sink to a deeper anti-American low, they never fail to rise to the occasion! In fact, this past week, the Democrats decided to protest the military and President Trump by replacing the MIA/POW flags in Congressional Democrat offices with transgender pride flags. Democrats said that it was to commemorate “Trans Visibility Week”, and was at the request of “National Center for Transgender Equality.” The group also requested that the Republicans place transgender pride outside their offices as well!

Fox News reported…

The move reportedly came at the behest of the “National Center for Transgender Equality.” The group tweeted Tuesday that it had delivered the flags to every member of Congress – even Republicans – with the request that they be flown outside their offices.

The National Center for Transgender Equality tweeted…

Then, the Center for Transgender Equality reveals how they delivered them to every Congressional member to fly throughout the United States Capital…

However, instead of politely declining, or even just putting them up, the Democrats as always chose to use it as a moment to ATTACK MEN AND WOMEN IN UNIFORM WHO HAVE SERVED OUR NATION, DIED FOR OUR NATION, OR ARE MISSING IN ACTION TO PROTECT THE FREEDOMS WE HAVE AS AMERICANS! Some of those who chose to fly the transgender flag in place of the POW/MIA include…

Senator Bernie Sanders and 2020 Presidential Candidate, Representative Kim Schrier (D-WA), Representative Kim Schrier (D-WA), and other Democrats! Also, there was Representative Adam Smith (D-WA), who flew the transgender flag beside the POW-MIA flag but chose to leave the POW-MIA flag up. Washington Democrat Adam Smith tweeted…

The Washington Free Beacon reported…

Staffers from the office of Rep. Pete Aguilar (D., Calif.) were spotted attempting to pull their office’s POW flag out of its stand on Wednesday. A source told the Washington Free Beacon that Aguilar’s office initially tried to remove the POW flag, was unsuccessful, then managed to remove it soon after.

The picture below shows the pink, white, and blue transgender flag on the right side of the door of Aguilar’s office.

Rep. Tim Ryan (D., Ohio) also replaced the POW flag with the transgender flag. The first picture is from a March 12 tweet, while the second is from a March 27 tweet. In the first photo, the POW flag is to the right of the Ohio state flag, while in the second photo, the transgender flag has taken its place.

 The offices for Aguilar and Ryan did not respond to requests for comment.

Several other offices have hung transgender pride flags outside of their offices this week in advance of International Transgender Day of Visibility on Sunday, The Hill reports. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), Rep. Alexandria  Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.), and Rep. Jennifer Wexton (D., Va.) are among the other members of Congress who also placed the flags outside their offices.

 

Representative Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ) also left the POW-MIA flag up and then draped her door with the transgender pride flag…

Fox News reported that…

The displays coincide with the House’s rebuke on Thursday to President Trump’s move to ban transgender people from serving in the military. A non-binding resolution opposing the ban passed 238-185, nearly along party lines. Only five Republicans sided with the Democrats to vote in the ban’s favor.

The Trump administration’s policy bars people who have undergone gender transition from enlisting and requires military personnel to serve as their biological gender.

Rep. Joe Kennedy, D-Mass., said the policy amounted to “targeted discrimination.” Armed Services Chair Adam Smith, D-Wash., said the Trump policy is “primarily based on ignorance and bias against the transgender community.”

Speaking from the floor in support of the resolution, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who had also placed a transgender pride flag outside her office, said: “There is no moral justification for this ban which violates every value of our American democracy.”

The United States Supreme Court upheld the Presidents ban as Constitutional, as the military did a full evaluation of troop readiness, as they pointed out how the transgendered troops mixed throughout the military has devastating consequences on military troop readiness!

Ultimately, President Trump is now fulfilling another campaign promise by reversing a radical policy imposed by the Obama administration, that was imposed upon the military, on July 1, 2016. It was a policy that was not reviewed, or consulted upon by military leadership! Instead, the former President imposed the policy upon the military to appease the transgendered part of his base!

Then, when President Trump ran for office, he said during a campaign event that he would reverse his predecessor’s radical and unprecedented decision! Trump said…

“We’re gonna get away from political correctness … some of the things they’re asking you to do and be politically correct about are ridiculous.”

Then, following his election, President Trump announced

“that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.”

Now, Democrats are going into anti-Military, anti-POW/MIA hysteria, as they cry foul over President Trump’s decision to return the military to the policy that was the status quo throughout American history…at least until President Obama radically changed the policy in 2016, on his way out of office!

Previously the military had listed that the standard of recruitment included the disqualification of physical and mental conditions such as the…

“(h)istory of major abnormalities or defects of the genitalia such as change of sex”, or “Learning, Psychiatric, and Behavioral.”

The Hill pointed out that mental conditions were a  disqualifying factor by military standards which includes transsexualism and transvestitism! It states…

“Current or history of psychosexual conditions . . . including but not limited to transsexualism . . . (and) transvestitism.”

As a result, President Trump reversed course, backed by the Supreme court, as he stated

“After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you”

In the end, the Democrats, under Obama were doing nothing more than implementing “social engineering and political correctness”, instead of medical research, as the Obama Administration implemented the new radical left-wing change! Instead of using the American military as an organization designed to protect America and all the freedoms that we cherish, they turned it into a petri-dish, to experiment and promote Marxist ideological political correctness! 

In addition, it led to the military having to use monies designated to protect our nation, instead to perform and pay for “gender reassignment surgery”, and at a cost to taxpayers of up to $110,000 per person, despite medical experts in the Obama Administrations Department of Health and Human Services saying that “clinical evidence is inconclusive” that the gender reassignment surgery is “medically necessary”!

Also, The Family Research Council analyzed of the potential costs, and it showed that the direct medical costs between both the surgery and hormone supplements that are required following the surgery could be nearly $1 billion dollars over 10 years. In addition, once transgenders are accepted into the military, then the military is required to pay for both the surgery and constant hormone therapy for the entirety of their time in service, is in addition to that them being taken out of service for an extended period of time, and therefore unable to be deployed! They calculated that the lost time due to service members not being deployable or taking special leave could drive the total cost to anywhere from $1.9 billion to $3.7 billion over a ten year period.

Also, Fox News reported that an estimated 1.5 million hours would be wasted on “sensitivity” classes that include lessons on how to handle biological men in women’s showers, “male pregnancies,” and off-duty drag. President Trump’s  Defense Secretary James Mattis argued that…

“Service members (are) spending too much time on senseless training that is really a waste of time.”

Those are some of the main reasons that transgenders were disqualified from service! After all, active duty service members are supposed to be deployable anywhere in the world at any given moment, and without the need for specialized medical care. Instead thanks to the Obama Administrations new policy, it cost our military and the taxpayers approximately $6.6 Billion every ten years, and that doesn’t even include the fact that they are not able to serve for extended periods of time, when our nation could very well need troops deployed AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT, and TO ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD! Furthermore, they need specialized medical care and hormones at the ready, on the battlefield, causing an increased strain to medical units that are supposed to be providing medical treatment to the wounded on the battlefield!

Ultimately, the President has indicated that the idea of transgendered Americans wanting to serve is a question of patriotism, but it has to do with the billions of dollars it would take from military needs, combined with the damage it would do to military readiness, are the primary factors as to why the transgender ban was returned to the pre-Obama era policies! Sadly, our military was forced to redirect money that should be spent on preparing our troops for war, and onto ‘political correctness exercises’, teaching ‘transgender etiquette’, and dealing with controversies that were spawned from the radical change that was forced upon the United States military by radical leftist Marxists in Washington D.C.!

President Trump was right to say that “Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory” over our nation’s enemies. Now, instead of caving to the special interest groups, radical leftists, Marxists, Socialists, and the like, President Trump is strengthening our nations military readiness, giving the troops the training and supplies that they need, prioritizing our military’s war-fighting capabilities by lifting this unnecessary burden from those preparing and fighting to achieve that victory, and ‘Making America Safe Again’, by putting the interest of American’s men and women in uniform first and foremost in his military policies! In the meantime, Democrats disrespectfully tear down the flag that is designed to commemorate those who have been ‘Prisoners of War’, and ‘Missing in Action’ (POW/MIA), as they shamefully replace it with the transgender pride flag! Sadly, it highlights the unAmerican and shameful, politically motivated agenda, that the now radically controlled Democrat Party has embraced in their platform! Fortunately, we have a President who calls out their nonsense for what it is! We have a President who blocks their radically motivated unAmerican agenda that hurts not only American civilians, but the men and women in uniform, who put their lives on the line to make America safe for ourselves, our children, and our posterity! In the end, it is just another example of how President Trump is truly ‘Making America Great Again’!
