Our nation usually pays tribute to those brave individuals who’ve sacrificed all, in service to their country by memorializing their selfless acts of bravery through monuments, commemorative holidays and of course flying “the stars and stripes” along with the POW/MIA flags over state capitals, local municipalities and wherever government buildings are located.
Those tributes to our American veterans should never be compromised or politicized by cheap and tawdry theatrics. However in Iowa on November 20th state Democratic legislators buckled to political pressure from the local LGBT advocacy group, pushing “transgender pride” by allowing a blue, pink and white flag to fly over the Iowa State Building.
The unconscionable arrogance by this depraved group of individuals in dishonoring the memory of those who’ve served once again illustrates their contempt for America’s honored principles.
However, this short-lived publicity stunt in November, may in fact be the remedy needed to end the nonsense in Iowa, as Republican lawmakers banded together and introduced “Senate Study Bill 3017,” in mid-January — which according to The Associated Press only authorizes custodians of public buildings or public school boards to raise the U.S., state of Iowa, POW/MIA and official flags of the political subdivisions on flagstaffs at buildings owned.
Republican State Senator Jake Chapman, who is backing the new legislation designed to plug-up the loophole that allowed Democrats along with LGBT activists to “completely disrespect” military veterans.
“I heard from numerous constituents who were very concerned about the precedent that’s being set. My understanding is that there were some internal policies that perhaps were violated during that demonstration but I think it’s important that at least my constituents know that we’re taking this serious,” Chapman told the Globe-Gazette.
Adding, “It’s what the flag represents and the fact that it was taken down and another flag was flown instead of the American flag and the Iowa flag and the POW/MIA flag, I think at a lot of Iowans find that to be very offensive.”
An official for the Iowa Department of Administrative Services admitted that someone in their department had screwed-up, in that only 3-flags are designated to officially fly over the Iowa Capitol building — the American, Iowa and the POW/MIA flags
State Administrative Services spokeswoman Tami Wiencek told the Gazette, “We have reminded all of our employees about existing procedures.”
Nevertheless, putting it in writing through “Senate Study Bill 3017,” takes the ambiguity out of having another state worker along with a few politically correct Democratic lawmakers misunderstanding.
However, Iowa isn’t alone when it comes to wacky Democrats purposely irritating their constituents.
In June, local officials in Maryland took down the POW/MIA flag at the Montgomery County Vietnam Veterans Memorial and replaced it with a “gay pride” flag.
Embattled officials feeling the intense backlash from the community, attempted to explain that the flags were lowered in order to celebrate “LGBT Pride Month” which outraged the community even further.
“I wasn’t happy about it at all because the park is supposed to be a veteran’s park,” Vietnam veteran John “Bill,” Williams told NBC Washington. “People died. Now they took it down and put another flag up.”
“If they want to put the other flag underneath, they could put it underneath, but the POW flag should be flying there,” Williams added.
In Philadelphia Democratic Mayor Jim Kenney, decided to fly Communist China’s Flag above City Hall, which is a celebration honoring the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.
“Raising this flag, a symbol of the birth of the Chinese Communist Party on October 1, 1949, is only celebrating tyranny, repression, and death,” said one local resident in an email to Kenney, who like a large majority of the Philadelphia City Council is a Democrat.
The mayor’s office, of course, countered, that “the flag raisings are not a sign of support for any specific government, political party, or movement.”
In a nutshell, it’s all about “DIVERSITY” no matter how corrupt, immoral or perverse the players.

take it down and burn it and put the real flag back up watch to see who is doing it then bury them !
There is that old saying that “those that can – do, those that can’t – teach”. And that is our problem. It is those that can’t do things productive that are teaching our children to also not be productive. That our country’s economy is still so big is a tribute to the fact that those that can’t do productive things and are teachers are not even effective teachers – because there are still enough of their students that have successfully resisted their indoctrination.
The transgender flag no authority to be flown over a government building. Fire the a**hole who made that decision!
Let those individuals who want their “sissy” flags up, pay the price of being men or women in Service, defending our country, bearing the injuries or death, then we American citizens may consider their silly need for recognition! Do something for your Glory or get out of America!!
They should kick the shit out of who ever did that.
Does this mean that Iowans are all cocksuckers?
I am beyond outraged! As a proud American Veteran and US Citizen, I am hurt by the disrespect towards
our country and specifically towards the US Military. It never occurred to me that I was going to live to see anything like this happen in our beloved America. Only because of our guaranteed freedom can we make personal choices such as transgenderism .!
OUR democratic party has a big problem. Instead of being proud to be american, they think that they need to make every other nation happy and people who have a gender problem happy. They obviously are not proud to be american. Or to have moral values. They do not care about women or little girls or they wouldn’t want men being able to use women’s public restrooms. Even if these transgenders think they are women, first of all they are not and it opens it up for every pervert to go into women’s restrooms and put little girls and women at risk of being raped or killed. If the democrats want to really help them, build BATHROOMS for them. Women should stand back and take a long looked at the rights and protections that the dems want to remove from them. Look around ladies.
this crap sucks . they have there way and we have ours .don’t try to change the rest of the world to yours’s. and keep our vets out of this kind of crap. be what you wont to be. the laws protect you as you are . but keep in mind that does not mean we have got to like what you are . my self I don’t care for it. it crosses all lines in the bible. (the old testament ) (man who lies with man or woman who lies with woman or man or woman who lies with an animals . ) (you are to destroy them all) for if you don’t there numbers will grow) for my self I will let the lord carry out his will on this. but keep in mind the more you cross lines like this. the more will turn on you .
It is a shame that no one had the guts to take the LGBT flag down and
put the War Vets flag back up where it belonged. It appears people are
so scared of being harassed by these factions. Why won’t they stand up
to these groups and stop tucking their tails between their legs.
That is so disrespectful to remove The POW’s/ MIA’s soldiers of this country. They laid down their lives for this country and they have replaced with a an LBGT flag. I am not one to judge what people do with their lives, but why are we honoring that flag, what have they done for our country.
I served my country in the 82nd airborne division from 1968 to 1971.I don’t ever remember anything pissing me off more than flying the transgender flag at the Iowa state building , after taking down old glory and the pow mia flag.
P.S. stock up on ammo.
Absolutely NO OTHER FLAG other than the American flag above ANY FEDERALLY OWNED BUILDING, OR ANY POW, VETERANS STATUTES OR GRAVEYARDS WHERE ANY ARMED FORCES ARE BURIED OR HONORED.
GOOD THING I DIDN’T SEE THAT GAY FLAG, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN PULLED DOWN AND GOTTEN RID OF.
If someone fly’s another flag they are not Americans I am a vet.
There should be an uprising until that flag comes down.
Glad to see that the Demoncraps and socialism keep hanging themselves!Less work for the Trump train to rundown!
