Tammy Bruce: Federal Request to fly gay pride flags at courthouses 'reinforces tribalism'

Le e-mail interne ottenute da Fox News hanno mostrato l'inoltro di questa richiesta al personale all'interno della GSA, l'agenzia federale che fornisce e gestisce i servizi di supporto di base, real estate and communications for the various parts of the federal government.

Bruce slammed the move, speaking as someone in the LGBT community, and saying that the omnipresence of the gay pride flag this time of year is more divisive than it is uniting.

My feeling initially about this as a gay woman is, we see in June the gay pride flag is everywhere: I have always been concerned because I love the American flag, that this is a dynamic that reinforces tribalism,” lei disse.

It reinforces this notion that well, there is the American flagbut here is who you are. This is your flag; it’s a separate entity within this framework.

The request comes weeks after the Biden administration asked for the Black Lives Matter banner to be flown or hung at U.S. embassies abroad; which was met with mixed reviews by the public.

In response to the latest demand from the Biden administration, Independent Women’s Law Center director Jennifer Braceras claimed the move was even more egregious than the BLM order – in that it ran against the federal separation of powers.

This particular request came from the executive branch to the judicial branch,” Braceras said. “I think it’s awfully bold that some bureaucrats at the GSA or political advisers in the Biden administration think they have the power to tell federal judges what flags to display.

Braceras remarked that judges symbolically wear black robes to demonstrate that they are impartial and unencumbered by partisan or sectarian influences.

The judiciary is a co-equal branch of government. They do not report to bureaucrats in the executive branch. And they don’t have to put out flags that they don’t want to,” lei disse.

Federal judges are supposed to be neutral arbiters of disputes – and federal courthouses shouldn’t be used as billboards to celebrate any particular cause or group or holiday, whether that’s breast cancer awareness month, whether that’s supporting the troops, or Black Lives Matter or the pride flag, or Saint Patrick’s Day.

A Maggio 25, leaked documents showed Biden’s administration issued guidance to allDiplomatic and Consular postsasking for them to fly the BLM flag to commemorate the anniversary of George Floyd’s murder.

In Congress, several Republicans including Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene della Georgia, Jeff Duncan of South Carolina and Rick Crawford of Arkansas signed onto theOnly Old Glory Act,” a bill that would prohibit flying the pride flag at U.S. Embassies.

Duncan, lo sponsor del disegno di legge, dichiarato quella “no other flag or symbol can portray our American valuesthan the Star-Spangled Banner.

La settimana scorsa, quando gli Stati Uniti. Embassy to the Holy See in Vatican City affixed a pride flag on its exterior, Nebraska Republican Gov. Pete Ricketts called it apolitical stunt” e wondered aloud on Twitter whether the White House would similarly hold the Catholic ideals offamily and freedom of consciencein the same high regard, given the embassy’s location.

Il Dipartimento della Difesa, tuttavia, will not allow the Pride flag to be flown at installations under its purview, Pentagon spokesperson Rear Adm. John Kirby, Ret., ha detto la scorsa settimana.
