#1 There is the American Flag, and the Unit Colors. Only one flys on the pole.

#2 It a flag for 100% of Americans not the 2% with reproductive mental problems.

#3 Trump is correct here, the official flagpole is for official countries flags only.

Gay pride does not represent any countries, but only represent a concept. Note the article said that the gay pride flag is not banned from being displayed elsewhere on the embassies ground.

#5 The pole is for the American flag. Full stop. You wanna have a pride flag out somewhere else, fine. Look like fucking soft idiots otherwise and a very potential target to other people.

#8 Under State Department policy, embassies that want to fly the flag on their flagpoles are expected to obtain permission from Washington.

That rule is not meant for these f(l)ags. Fucking NBC.

#9 I fully support this. No flags that don't represent the whole of the United States should fly over our embassies (I would permit flags like the Navy flag on an event such as the Navy's birthday or something, because the Navy does represent the entirety of the United States, for example). Similarly, the US embassies shouldn't fly the largely white flag with a cross that represents Christianity in the eyes of many, or the Red Cross flag, or innumerable other widely recognized flags attached to causes that are not the national government of the United States (and federal government here in the states should follow the same rules, with exceptions for the state flags those buildings are located in).

#10 Yes. Nowhere does it say the gummint's job is to be a cudgel to make me validate other people's life choices. And that's all SJW action is about.
