In every war, there are those end up Missing in Action or end up as Prisoners of War.
There families anguish for years, not knowing the fate of their loved ones.
The last thing they want is to forget their loved ones who are listed as either a POW or MIA.
Hence, the creation of the black flag with white POW * MIA above the silhouette of someone in the prison camp with the words underneath that read YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN.
However, some Democrats, including Bernie Sanders, have opted to replace the POW/MIA flags outside their offices in the Capitol Building with a flag representing transgender people.
Fox News – Dems replace POW/MIA flags with transgender pride flags to protest Trump military ban – Multiple Democratic lawmakers this week replaced POW/MIA flags outside their Capitol Hill offices with a Transgender Equality flag to commemorate “Trans Visibility Week,” photos show.
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.
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., tweeted a photo of his office with the transgender flag displayed, writing: “Discrimination has no place in our society. I am proud to display this flag as a symbol of my support for transgender people across the country. We must stand with transgender people in all of our community.”
Discrimination has no place in our society. I am proud to display this flag as a symbol of my support for transgender people across the country. We must stand with transgender people in all of our communities.
This is an insult to every current and former member of the military and to their families.
For these politicians to place sexually confused perverts over the brave men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country is not only offensive but is completely reprehensible.
This should be enough to away the votes of everyone who is serving, has served or who has had a family member serve in the military.
Don’t forget, that these same Democrats value illegal aliens more than they value American citizens.
