Biden signed a law that effectively bans flying LGBT flags at U.S. embassies. Yes, you read that correctly.
· Mar 25, 2024 ·

Biden signed a $1.2 trillion budget deal into law this weekend and we all went a little further into debt.

I'll give you a second to catch your breath on that one.

But it's not all bad news.

You see, no one actually reads these things, not even President Biden, so someone managed to slip in a little zinger. They essentially banned LGBTQETC flags from flying over embassies and any other State Department building.

According to the text, "None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available by this Act may be obligated or expended to fly or display a flag over a facility of the United States Department of State," except for those in a list of exceptions, which does not include the Pride flag.

Its language was similar to that in the Republicans' 2023 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

Rep. Ralph Norman (R-S.C.) said that bill would prevent a "rainbow flag [from] flying alongside the American Flag at our military bases."

But Senate Democrats removed the language from that bill.

They must have missed it this time around, and Biden signed it into law!!

The White House called it a "policy targeting LGBTQI+ Americans," saying President Biden believed "it was inappropriate to abuse the process that was essential to keep the government open" by including the provision, according to a statement to The Hill from a White House spokesperson.

To be fair, if you're going to get the work done destroying the nation, there's no time to be reading through 1000s of pages of a spending bill, and sometimes things get missed.

And so we say,

So long, Pride flag!

Hello, unimaginable debt!
