US Embassies Worldwide Are Flying BLM Flags This Week

By Tyler Durden | 28 May 2021

ZERO HEDGE — US embassies and consulates across the globe this week flew Black Lives Matter (BLM) flags after being authorized and encouraged to do so for the first time ever in a memo by Secretary of State Antony Blinken. It’s now expected to be a regular practice, particularly in instances of race-related events or memorials.

Just ahead of the May 25 one-year anniversary of George Floyd’s death, a State Department memo was sent to all diplomatic staff worldwide saying that it “supports the use of the term ‘Black Lives Matter’ in messaging content”. It further encouraged speeches and commemorative events related to diplomatic engagements on the anniversary “and beyond”. Subsequently on Tuesday BLM flags were photographed flying at various US diplomatic compounds across the globe, stretching from east Asia to Greece to Spain and Latin America.

Blinken said in a Tuesday video commemorating the Floyd anniversary that America can only be “credible force for human rights around the world” if it faces “the realities of racism and hatred here at home.” […]

  1. Blinken said in a Tuesday video commemorating the Floyd anniversary that America can only be “credible force for human rights around the world” if it faces “the realities of racism and hatred here at home.”…..he’s right of course, we white people do face a lot of that every time we get up in the morning, to when we go to bed.

  2. The last couple of years, rainbow “pride flags” were also flown in front of several buildings around the District of Columbia; hence I would say that this move is a continuation of that program. Mr. Blinken’s comment:

    “credible force for human rights around the world” if it faces “the realities of racism and hatred here at home.”

    IS A JOKE!

    The most credible action the United States could take in the world is to stop messing around with other nation’s politics, in the name of U.S. interests, as the key principle in foreign policy. Yet, Mr. Blinken is only in power to play the game, keep up the illusion and bend to the principals of the fascist network that supports its front, BLM.

    Please recall friends that as the Titanic (or rather its sister ship) sunk, the band played on. The state of our nation is no different.
