In a bold move during Pride Month, President Joe Biden’s administration is under fire for its display at the White House that has sparked controversy online. Twitter users are arguing that the display violates the U.S. Flag Code, and the backlash is growing louder.
The display, unveiled on Saturday, features a rainbow-colored Pride flag flanked by two American flags, facing the South Lawn. However, critics claim that this arrangement violates a section of the U.S. Flag Code, which specifies that the American flag should be at the center and highest point when multiple national flags or pennants are displayed.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton expressed his concern over the display, stating, “To advance the revolutionary transgender agenda targeting children, Biden violates the basic tenet of the US Flag Code and disrespects every American service member buried under its colors.” Fitton referred to U.S. Flag Code §7. (e), which reinforces the importance of placing the American flag at the center and highest point in such displays.
Despite the mounting criticism, the White House has not responded to requests for comment on the matter. This lack of response has only fueled further outrage among those who believe that the display is a blatant disregard for the U.S. Flag Code.
The controversy surrounding the Pride display comes as Biden’s administration celebrates Pride Month with various events. One such event, held at the White House, showcased performers and speakers who represent LGBT causes. During the event, the first lady, Jill Biden, commended the Pride community as “the bravest and most inspiring people” and emphasized their role in shaping the future of the United States and the world.
Biden himself praised the LGBT community, calling them “some of the bravest and most inspiring” people he has ever known. He highlighted the importance of unity and moving forward together, with pride lighting the way.
While the administration’s intentions may have been to celebrate diversity and inclusivity, the criticism over the flag display raises questions about adherence to the U.S. Flag Code and respect for the symbols that represent our nation.
As the controversy continues to unfold, it remains to be seen how the Biden administration will respond and whether any changes will be made to the Pride display at the White House. The debate surrounding this issue underscores the ongoing cultural and political divisions in our country and serves as a reminder of the importance of respecting our national symbols and traditions.
