President Joe Biden’s White House featured the homosexual “pride” flag prominently on the building’s facade on Saturday.
“America is a nation of pride,” Biden said of his administration’s celebration of LGBT “pride month” in a tweet featuring the flag.
Today, the People’s House – your house – sends a clear message to the country and to the world.

Many Americans were saddened and angered by Biden’s decision to feature the LGBT flag on the White House — days before the patriotic holiday of Flag Day, no less.
The American flag itself was placed in a flanking position to the LGBT flag in the outdoor display.
This is a disgrace. The US flag DOES NOT FLANK *ANY* FLAG. Especially not on OUR White House. pic.twitter.com/dYdEBsGKX1

Some Twitter users even described the placement as a violation of the U.S. flag code — a law regulating the display of the American flag on government and military installations.

The flag code does apply to the use of the flag when mounted on a staff, rather than hung from a building.
U.S. Flag Code §7.
e. The flag of the United States of America should be at the center and at the highest point of the group when a number of flags… are grouped and displayed

The code requires the flag to be displayed most prominently, forbidding the placement of another flag in a superior position to the American flag.
To advance revolutionary transgender agenda targeting children, Biden violates basic tenet of US Flag Code and disrespects every American service member buried under its colors.

Biden described the attendees of the White House’s LGBT “pride” event as the most courageous group he’d seen in the “recent past –” declining to mention American veterans of the Global War on Terror, Ukrainian soldiers, or 9/11 first responders.

Biden also criticized laws passed by Republican-governed states barring the use of supposed gender transitions on children during the event.
