Vladimir Putin Mocks Rainbow Pride
Flag Flying over U.S. Embassy

Original Article

Russian President Vladimir Putin has mocked the decision by U.S. officials to fly a rainbow pride flag over the embassy in Moscow, saying it “tells you something about the people who work there.”During a televised video conference on Friday, Putin was told that the American embassy had hung a rainbow flag on its facade for the first time to celebrate Pride Month in June. “Who works in this building?” Putin asked the speaker, Sen. Alexei Pushkov, who responded, “Americans.”“Let them celebrate. It tells you a certain something about the people who work there,” Putin added with a smile.

I have to agree with Putin on this one. Only the American flag should fly over any government offices. I hope Trump fires every one of these swamp rats for their disrespect for our country.

Also, 'Pride Month'? What is there to be proud about a decision to end your genetic future? Might as well castrate or neuter yourself and celebrate that. What lasting achievement, benefiting society comes from being deliberately abnormal? N.o.t.h.i.n.g...

In warfare, you fly the flag of him you serve. Period. As for the instigator, they should be sanctioned at the very least, and then fired. If it was an American employee, their credentials should be pulled and withheld. Get home the best way you can.

Sorry whoever writes the little snippets under the "Must Reads" but in this (and in a few other things) Putin is completely right. The homosexual lifestyle and the alphabet people are not celebrated in Russia. They don't allow drag queens to read stories to their preschoolers or perverts and sodomites to parade down their streets. Good old fashioned marriage and family are taught and upheld as the foundation of civilisation. We used to be the same.

It tells the world that Russian President Vladimir Putin knows more about the fact that America was founded to be a Judeo-Christian nation. Yet here July 2020 stands America's government of the people, by the people, for the people, showing they worship Lucifer. Showing the entire world on their founding day in 2020 that our government of the people, by the people, for the people, have cast off God our Father creator and any semblance of Love of God our Father. America has become just another sinful abomination to God our Father creator and savior of our soul. The sixth trump is about to sound where all but a remnant of His creations will be worshiping Lucifer in 'Hell on Earth' for a short period of time before the seventh trump sounds for God' end time millennial.

Who authorized the flying of a rainbow flag on top of the U.S. embassy? Find out who it was, and immediately remove them from federal service. It's a U.S. embassy. No other flag but the U.S. flag should be flown.

Ambassador Sullivan us there to represent US. Normal-Americans are underrepresented. Ambassador Sullivan, confirmed by an overwhelming bipartisan vote in the Senate, is forgetting that Russia under Putin is now a Christian Orthodox country. Russians will be offended by this flag of Sodom. Ambassador Sullivan should go, not because of LGBTQRS, but because he transmits weakness. Flying the Confederate flag would be have been brave, but not one American Ambassador has done it. All Southerners should vote for the one who is trying to preserve our history. Putin has reconstructed the Orthodox Churches. They are probably the last Christian country and we should celebrate this. If you want to understand how deeply Christianity runs in Russia, read The Brothers Karamasov by Dostoyevsky.

Barack Obama embarrassed the US in front of the entire world when he lit up the White House with his rainbow lights. Where you put your sexual organ should not be a matter of advertised pride since everybody has one, unless it's false pride and you are attempting to justify your shame.

Prince Harry today faced criticism after he appeared to take a swipe at the British Empire by saying the history of the Commonwealth 'must be acknowledged', even if it's 'uncomfortable'.

As part of the discussion on 'justice and equal rights', Harry said the Commonwealth needs to follow others who have 'acknowledged the past' and are 'trying to right their wrongs', and also admitted to having his own 'unconscious bias'.

Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin argued President Donald Trump’s recent speeches were a “hateful,” attempt to go to war with fellow Americans.Rubin said, “I think he’s in a desperate position, and it seems as though he’s not even trying right now.
