Omar slams Trump administration for barring pride flag from foreign embassies

Rep. Ilhan Omar accused the Trump administration of being ’bigoted’ amid reports that US embassies have had requests to fly the rainbow Pride flag denied. This comes after reports indicate that the State Department rejected requests of the US embassies in Israel, Germany, Brazil, and Latvia to fly the flag on the official embassy flagpole in honor of Pride.

Umm... Let's not fly a flag that represents a lifestyle in a country where that lifestyle is punishable by death. All it takes is one angry mob of Muslims storming the embassy and one of the security guards to shoot one person before we are in another international conflict. Stop antagonizing the Muslims, Omar.

It would be inappropriate for a government building to fly a flag that does not represent everyone in the nation.

The American flag is the only flag we should fly at our embassies.

It's not an official flag, it's just a flag made by activists. Why would they fly it?

Our country's flag represents ALL our citizens. No need for any other.

Oh the hypocrisy. The official US flag is the only one that must be flown officially. And the Dems in particular should show it more respect, rather than denigrate it as they routinely do. BTW, have other administrations flown other flags? How about the rainbow flag? Not holding my breath to see Omar apply the same standard to Muslim nations.

What does someone's sexual orientation have to do with an embassy or a country? Next she will want Captain Marvel's flag to be up at the White House

Why should a flag that only represents a portion of Americans be flown when the American flag represents all US citizens? 🤔
