Just when you think the left can’t possibly denigrate the American flag anymore, they decide it would be appropriate to fly the black lives matter flag along with it.
According to a report in Human Events News:
A source within the Biden State Department wishing to remain anonymous has shared with Human Events News a document that indicates that all U.S. “Diplomatic and Consular posts” are being encouraged to display shows of support for Black Lives Matter on Tuesday, May 25, the one-year anniversary of George Floyd’s death. The memo reads in part, “The Department supports the use of the term ‘Black Lives Matter’ in messaging content, speeches, and other diplomatic engagements with foreign audiences to advance racial equity and access to justice on May 25 and beyond (italics added) We encourage posts to focus on the need to eliminate systemic racism and its continued impact.”
The memo, which is in part a woke statement on social justice, part an apology for U.S. actions, and part an endorsement of all BLM materials, expressly encourages the display of the BLM flag or banner at U.S. facilities (except on the actual flagpole that holds the American flag). It reads, in part:
Despite the documented actions of BLM protestors during the riots of 2020, and despite the New York Times reporting on their organization’s declining popularity with American voters, our federal government has nonetheless decided to endorse and promote an organization with admitted Marxist roots as one having ties to our official foreign offices.
We should all be asking ourselves, why would our own federal government be supporting an organization with Marxist roots.
To many the answer is simple, the Democrats hate America. They are openly attacking our Constitution and many openly believe in the Marxist principles outlined in the Communist Manifesto. In fact, to some Democrats they see that work as a playbook to transform America.
This is why groups like BLM are lauded by the left.
And, in case you don’t believe BLM is a group with Marxist ideologies, just look at their leader.
The NY Post reports:
Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said in a newly surfaced video from 2015 that she and her fellow organizers are “trained Marxists” – making clear their movement’s ideological foundation, according to a report.
Cullors, 36, was the protégé of Eric Mann, former agitator of the Weather Underground domestic terror organization, and spent years absorbing the Marxist-Leninist ideology that shaped her worldview, Breitbart News reported.
“The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia, in particular, are trained organizers,” she said, referring to BLM co-founder Alicia Garza.
“We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk,” Cullors added in the interview with Jared Ball of The Real News Network.
While promoting her book “When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir” in 2018, Cullors described her introduction to and support for Marxist ideology.
She described to Democracy Now! how she became a trained organizer with the Labor/Community Strategy Center, which she called her “first political home” under the mentorship of Mann, its director, Breitbart reported.
The center, which describes its philosophy as “an urban experiment,” uses grassroots organization to “focus on Black and Latino communities with deep historical ties to the long history of anti-colonial, anti-imperialist, pro-communist resistance to the US empire,” according to the outlet.
It also expresses its appreciation for the work of the US Communist Party, “especially Black communists,” as well as its support for “the great work of the Black Panther Party, the American Indian Movement, Young Lords, Brown Berets, and the great revolutionary rainbow experiments of the 1970s,” Breitbart reported.
This should shed a little light on why the left and Democrats in general would support something like raising the BLM (Marxist) flag on a flag pole along with our American flag.
We cannot let this stand and luckily enough there is a petition circulating where you can show you disdain for this action.
According to LifePetitions.com:
This order is an outrageous and insulting affront to American identity and sovereignty, and must be rescinded immediately!
Please SIGN this petition to demand that U.S. embassies around the world fly the American flag ONLY!
According to a leaked memo, quoted below and published by Human Events News on Monday, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken urged embassies to push Black Lives Matter messaging and authorized them to “hang BLM flags” “for calendar year 2021.”
“As outlined below, Chiefs of Mission may decide to hang BLM flags, as appropriate and depending on local context. This cable constitutes a blanket written authorization for calendar year 2021 from the Under Secretary for Management (M) to display the BLM flag on the external-facing flagpole to any Chiefs of Mission.”
“The Department supports the use of the term ‘Black Lives Matter’ in messaging content, speeches, and other diplomatic engagements with foreign audiences to advance racial equity and access to justice on May 25 and beyond. We encourage posts to focus on the need to eliminate systemic racism and its continued impact.”
Of course, eliminating racism is a positive thing, but NOT by promoting the Black Lives Matter organization or movement which have been linked to the following radical actions and ideas:
- Violent protests and the general destabilization of our society
- Defunding of our police departments
- The overthrow of the nuclear family
- Perpetual marxist revolution
Only a miniscule proportion of the American population supports the radical ideology and actions of the BLM organization and movement. In fact, polling shows that a strong majority of Americans believe that “All Lives Matter,” rather than just the lives of just one race of Americans.
The Biden Administration’s promotion of this Leftist symbolism and ideology is both dangerous and deliberately misleading.
And, it is the worst kind of virtue signaling, as the message being sent to the rest of the world is: “Get on board with the radical, marxist and revolutionary ideology of the BLM organization and movement if you want a favorable response from the United States government.”

Unreal. BLM, founded by avowed Marxists, supporters of Hamas. What message is the US sending to the world? There should be no flag but the American flag flying from embassy flagpoles. https://t.co/Z6SNInIOJZ
