Biden Admin Demands Replacement Of American Flag — You Won’t Believe This

Secretary of State Antony Blinken allowed U.S. embassies and consulates to fly the Black Lives Matter flag on the anniversary of George Floyd’s death and to commemorate Juneteenth, the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the U.S., according to an internal memo.

Floyd was murdered by a white police officer in Minnesota last year, an incident that set off worldwide protests over the treatment of black people by law enforcement.

Blinken, in the memo, said all diplomatic posts were “strongly encouraged” to use the State Department’s resources to “promote policy objectives to advance racial equity and support for underserved communities,” especially on May 25 and during the month of June.

That includes support for using “the term ‘Black Lives Matter’ in messaging content, speeches, and other diplomatic engagements with foreign audiences to advance racial equity and access to justice on May 25 and beyond.”

The high-profile Floyd case has led to the removal of statues and monuments honoring those involved with the confederacy as well as other historical figures, the renaming of streets, and other tributes.

Blinken in a video Tuesday stressed the importance of human rights at a UN meeting, saying the U.S. would not tolerate nations that break international rules.

His memo encourages messaging around that theme, but “as appropriate and depending on local context.”

Former President Donald Trump during his tenure slammed the Black Lives Matter movement, saying it was “destroying many black lives.”
