Maryland County Officials Replace POW/MIA Flag at Veteran’s Park with Rainbow LGBTQ Pride Flag

The pride flag replaced a POW/MIA flag at Montgomery County’s Veterans Memorial Plaza.

Some Montgomery County, Maryland veterans and community members were surprised to find that county officials replaced a prisoners of war/missing-in-action commemorative flag in a veteran’s park with an LGBTQ+ pride flag.

County officials apparently intended to celebrate pride month by raising the flag, paying no mind to the presence of the missing-in-action flag.

The flag was hoisted over an area of the county municipal offices designated as Veteran’s Memorial Plaza. The suitably located POW/MIA flag had to be removed to make room for its implementation.

I wasn’t happy about it… The park there is supposed to be a veteran’s park. People died- their names are there, now they take down the flag and put up another one.”

Local officials appear to be backtracking now that the move to remove the veteran’s flag has been met with rejection from the community. The flag was restored to its previous place soon after its removal.

A county official, Evan Glass, stated that an additional ringlet will be added to the flagpole to allow the display of two flags, making it appear as it Montgomery County officials are still unwilling to allow the POW/MIA flag to fly alone on its own flagpole.

When asked if he had any regrets as to the removal of the POW/MIA flag, he dodged the question, merely phrasing the issue as a mere procedural gaff caused by the absence of two ringlets on the pole.

Shameless.

Published

on

Democrats in the state of Washington are now seeking to institute a statewide LGBT-focused sex ed program that would be taught to students ranging from kindergarten to high school.

House Bill 2184 would institute “comprehensive sexual health education” in Washington’s public schools by the year 2022.

A parental watchdog group in the state is raising the alarm, calling out the progressive legislation for its marketing of adult sexuality to children.

Another post from the Informed Parents of Washington revealed some of the sexually explicit content the sex ed program has lined up for sixth graders.

A program of sex ed that is taught to kindergarteners may be unprecedented in national American public education, especially considering it’s slated to include morally controversial topics such as homosexuality.

A survey by the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction revealed that Washington parents are overwhelmingly opposed to the notion of teaching sex ed to kids as young as kindergarteners. More than 10,000 responses have been recorded, and over 58% of Washingtonians are opposed to the notion of youth sex ed.

But the state’s Democratic government is fine with simply ignoring the will of parents with children in public schools, plowing ahead with the sex ed program regardless of public sentiment.

A Republican legislator, Michelle Cardier, described the program’s content as “completely inappropriate” in a radio interview. “I think that if it is inappropriate for me to say [at the state house], I don’t think that’s something that I would want to teach a kindergartner.”

97 people have signed up to testify at the Washington House of Representatives in regards to the controversial sex ed, proposal, but only 16 are being allowed to because of time restraints.
