MURDOCK: State Department Should Leave BLM Flags Furled

NEW YORK — Here are just four international challenges that America has confronted in the last few weeks of Joe Biden’s Reign of Error:

Federal encounters on the southern border with illegal aliens from 70+ countries zoomed from 17,106 in April 2020 to 178,622 last month — up 944 percent. As if his own department did not release these data, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas insists, “the border is closed.” This is as farcical as the recent Three Stooges-like footage of illegals dodging valiant, but overwhelmed, Border Patrol agents at Joya, Texas.

Senator Joh Kennedy (R – Louisiana) told Fox & Friends: “If you believe the border is closed, you believe in the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, and that Jimmy Hoffa died of natural causes.”

Cybercriminals shut down the Colonial Pipeline, creating chaos and Carteresque gas lines from Washington, D.C. to Florida. The perpetrators remain at large in Russia, rather than extradited to America for interrogation and prosecution. Biden remained silent about this for days and then tepidly announced that the Kremlin had nothing to do with this. As if he were a Russian asset (which Democrats insisted was President Donald J. Trump’s other job) Biden rewarded the Kremlin for its acquiescence (or worse) in this episode by erasing sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline connecting Russia to Germany. And then Biden decided that the time is now for a summit with Putin, showing that Moscow will not pay even a diplomatic price for Russian citizens hacking right into America’s internal energy flows.

Hamas terrorists in the Gaza Strip fired some 4,000 Iranian rockets at America’s beloved allies in Israel. Biden pushed a ceasefire before Israel could finish entombing these professional Jew killers beneath their own rubble.

And America still is trying to get China to explain how some germs slipped out of Wuhan, crept across the globe, landed in the USA, killed almost 600,000 Americans, and wacked nearly 3 million people worldwide. The economic destruction totals trillions. The socio-cultural devastation is incalculable. 

Rather than focusing U.S. prestige on any one of these urgent problems, the State Department is distracting American diplomats with a “request for action” urging them to fly Black Lives Matter flags above embassies and consulates overseas starting today, the first anniversary of the death of George Floyd, which triggered widespread panic.

These national and global protests sparked a movement to confront systems perpetuating deep-seated inequities rooted in colonialism and the oppression of racial, tribal, ethnic, and other minority communities,” the State Department’s unclassified cable declared. “Mr. Floyd’s murder prompted an international outcry to seek racial justice and equity by dismantling systemic racism and eradicating police brutality affecting communities of color, most acutely, people of African descent.”

Why advance American and allied interests when State can act as BLM’s international marketing department?

Who can forget Obama’s 2009 international apology tour? This flag project turns American embassies into apology stations. US diplomatic posts will tell the world, in essence: America is a racist country where police gun down black people for sport.

“Black lives matter,” in lower-case, is a fine message. Conversely, waving the flag of Black Lives Matter, with capital letters, provides official U.S. government endorsement to a political movement with Marxist roots that is deeply anti-American and responsible for riots, arson, and destruction last year, after the death of George Floyd.

BLM fans who might love this development should try this thought experiment:

Imagine that it’s spring 2025. Biden is long gone, and the Oval Office has been reinvigorated with President Ron DeSantis or — even more dramatically — President Donald J. Trump has returned in a Reconquista to rival that of Ferdinand and Isabella in 1492. The GOP administration asks US embassies to wave the flag of the National Rifle Association, Tea Party Patriots, or the National Right to Life Committee. No, those peaceful groups lack the debris and dead bodies that Black Lives Matter left in its wake last spring and summer. But just stop and ponder the planetary chaos that would erupt if Republicans tried anything like this.

In contrast, there is no limit to the audacity and inappropriateness of daily Democrat behavior. This proves it, yet again — as if even one fresh particle of evidence were necessary.

Whatever mess Biden was in before he became Pres, is much uglier and more disturbing now! There’s not much that can be done, so I guess that we’ll have to wait until Americans have had enough of Biden and they begin to attempt to rid themselves of him!

HOW about this? Impeach the Secretary of State and hold him accountable for this despicable action. and while we’re at it, IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT AND Vice President FOR FAILURE TO UPHOLD THE LAWS OF THE LAND. They both took an oath of office on Jan. 20 to do so, yet they are ignoring our Immigration Laws.

Black lives do not matter any more than any other lives. Blacks =12.7% of the population and 90% of the problems.

I’ve always find it mind boggling that BLM protest and marches and riots happen because of questionable police shooting a dozen or so people a year, of which half of those shot were perpetrators of a crime or were wanted and resisted capture. They say all police are racist even though many city police forces are 20-30% minorities, but black people shooting and killing other blacks in our cities is well over 1000+ a year and apparently, those black lives didn’t matter to the movement??? Why are they not marching in Chicago and Detroit and Baltimore and New York and Philly and LA shouting “stop killing each other”?? AND, why doesn’t our stupid media jump all over this hypocrasy?

It is not only wholly inappropriate for the fake Sec. of State to do this, it is more so, a supremely significant symbol of who actually runs this country now. The BLM. That is horrifying. Joe is gone mentally, Kamala is an evil woman and she is a big supporter of the BLM. It adds up, very unfortunately for the destruction of our wonderful country.

We love President Trump! He is the true President and absolutely Beloved by the American People.

This entire situation is like a nightmare right before us. Everyone should get active that is concerned at all.

Black Lives don’t matter because it is not about Black Lives. They are haters of America, White People, Jews, Israel, Police and instigators of violence (especially Antifa). Biden’s and his administration are saying it is O.K. to fly BLM Flag at our embassies through out the world. He is so torn by the left Liberals that he refuses to think clearly and maybe he never will with his cognitive degeneration. America has to wake up and understand the Democrats, Left, Liberals who do not love or care about America and the American People, but only about the vote and to retain power to push through what they personally want and will not represent the people who elected them to office. (It was an illegitimate election) That means You who voted for the Democrats and turned your backs on our great Nation. I do not want to lose my freedom or I will be forced to relocate from the USA. If there were only Black People in this nation, do you really believe this country would have and continue to be as Great as it is. This Great Melting Pot is because of our diversity with people who want their nation (USA) to always be the land of opportunity and freedom for all. Think about it long and hard.

Very good points!

The BLM Flag is NOT the one I fought under and for, in Vietnam!

I find myself on the edge of my chair over the Arizona Audit and the five (5) other states getting read to perform THEIR audits!

Preliminary results in Arizona is jaw dropping!

A total disgrace to the United States of America, to put a terrorists flag of BLM with our National Flag. No longer is there a Democrat Party! It died a long time ago. It’s time America woke up to the fact, it’s a Socialist Communist Party. Everything this bogus Administration does is Anti- American! Party of illegal practices against our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Lawlessness prevails and with the droves of illegals coming in it will soon hit us everywhere! May God help us all, because we are going to need it.🇺🇸🦅
