Flag-Gate is the radical Right's new front on their jihad against our fairly elected President Biden.
President Biden rescinded his order for flags to be flown at half-staff on Peace Officers Memorial Day Saturday.
The Radical Right pounced. “Aha! Now we have proof! Sleepy Joe must really hate cops, amirite?”
“In case you had any question as to where President Biden stands on police, now you know,” said Kayleigh McEnany.
New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) called Biden’s decision “outrageous” and said his state would continue flying flags at half-staff.
Florida Representative Brian Mast (R) tweeted: “Earlier this week Joe Biden announced that flags would be flown at Half Staff tomorrow to honor the men & women in blue who died in the line of duty. Today he “Friday news dumped” that he’d changed his mind: in his opinion, they aren’t worthy of lowering the flags. Unacceptable!”
Right hate and ignorance are what should be unacceptable. The Radical Right
wants us to believe that Joe thinks policemen killed in the line of duty “aren’t
worthy” of being honored.
Willful ignorance not only fuels anger and hatred in radical Right ideology, they embrace it.
The Washington Post explained:
President Biden initially ordered flags on Saturday to be flown at half-staff. Then he ordered them back up at full-staff.
It’s because of a quirk that comes up every half dozen years or so, when a day that honors two groups collides — with two different protocols for the American flag. For Peace Officers Memorial Day, which falls on May 15, flags are supposed to be at half-staff. But the third Saturday in May is marked to honor Armed Forces Day — and on that day, flags are supposed to be full-staff.
On Saturday, those two days were one and the same.
Biden’s initial proclamation last week said that flags should be flown at half-staff. But he reissued a proclamation on Friday making clear that flags were to remain at full-staff.
The White House declined to comment on the record about the change, but suggested that it was done to remain in compliance with U.S. codes honoring Armed Forces Day.
“The flag shall be flown at half-staff on Peace Officers Memorial Day, unless that day is also Armed Forces Day,” reads the U.S. code pertaining to the flag.
Plainly, this nuance is on a scale unfathomable to the radical Right.
Will radical Right Republicans admit to their error?
Will radical Right Republicans admit it when their accusations are false?
Will radical Right Republicans EVER admit to their errors and false accusations?
Will radical Right Republicans EVER admit that Trump lied and lost to Biden?
Will radical Right Republicans EVER apologize for their errors, lies and false accusations?
Radical Right Authoritarians have always considered admission of errors, false accusations, lies and apologies as weakness.
Their self-righteous sense of superior morality, innate arrogance, and fragile egos, won’t allow it. They can't imagine being mistaken or misled because they are always right.
Well, radical far Right to be precise.
