Army Special Operations Command Raises ‘Pride Flag’ on Social Media

Army Special Operations Command Raises 'Pride Flag' on Social Media

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – The United States Army Special Operations Command published an intersex-inclusive pride banner across all its social media channels, drawing condemnation from former Green Berets and conservative comments.

The banner, also known as the intersex-inclusive Pride Progress flag, was uploaded by the command, which creates the Army’s Special Forces, along with the following statement on its Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook accounts:

The “intersex” emblem, a purple circle on a yellow background, was present on the flag. Both the flag and the USASOC symbol were shown.

“Intersex” is defined as “those whose bodies do not align with the gender binaries of males or females” in a Boston University article. These people come in both genital and other varieties.

According to the article, yellow and purple hues are intended to be perceived as “nonbinary colors.”

Additionally, the flag had three colors: white, light blue, and pink, which, according to the story, stand for boys, girls, and “those who are transitioning, have no gender, or are gender neutral.”

“And you jackasses wonder why the military as a whole can’t even meet its recruiting goals,” wrote a former Green Beret in reply.

“There is only one flag you should be proud of—the one our brothers and sisters perished fighting for.”

The Sara Carter Show presenter and Fox News contributor Sara Carter, criticized the command’s posts on Twitter, writing:

“@USASOCNews
My husband was in Special Operations Command for more than 16 years and continued to serve beyond – but he fought for the American flag, not the LGBTQ flag
See, here’s the problem – The American flag represents all Americans and the rights we cherish – we don’t need the bizarre multi-colored flag to appreciate the freedom my husband and so many others (gay or not) risked their lives for or lost their lives for – your priorities are so F’ked up.”

Some responses were also hidden by the official Twitter account @USASOCNews, including one that featured a picture of Chinese and Russian military leaders laughing.

In a statement, a representative for USASOC claimed that the flag displayed at its stations was per a document issued by the Department of Defense designating June as “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex (LGBTQI+) Pride Month.”

The spokesperson stated:

“In June, the Army recognizes LGBTQ service members and civilians for their service to the Army and the nation. Pride Month is a nationally recognized observance celebrating the LGBTQ community, its advocates, and allies by promoting community, unity and pride.

The social media post you reference is meant to be reflective of the DoD memorandum published on May 31, 2023, stating that the Department recognizes June as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex (LGBTQ+) Pride Month.”

In fact, Gilbert Cisneros, Jr., Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, released a memo on May 31, 2023, including “intersex” in the Department’s recognition of Pride Month. He is the top human resources officer at the Pentagon.

Last year, a message from Cisneros commemorating Pride Month omitted the term “intersex.”

There is awareness about the number of intersex or non-binary individuals serving in the Special Forces.

However, when asked about social media posts related to this topic, USASOC declined to comment, even though Army Gen. Bryan Fenton may have been aware of them.

Majority of Job Growth Since 2019 Has Gone to Migrant Invaders

ugust-2-2023-asylum-seekers-outside-1-

The majority of job growth in the United States since 2019 has gone to newly arrived migrants, while working-class American men continue to fall out of the labor force, an alarming analysis reveals.

Steven Camarota at the Center for Immigration Studies published this analysis, showcasing the devastating impact of President Joe Biden’s agenda to expand the labor market through mass immigration. Instead of focusing on getting Americans back to work, Biden’s policies have overwhelmingly favored migrants, both legal and illegal, at the expense of American workers.

Since 2019, before the Chinese coronavirus pandemic disrupted the economy, about 75 percent of all U.S. job growth has been attributed to newly arrived migrants. In stark contrast, fewer than one million Americans have joined the workforce during the same period. This betrayal of American workers is nothing short of scandalous.

“The government’s household survey shows that there were only 971,000 more U.S.-born Americans employed in May 2024 compared to May 2019 prior to the pandemic, while the number of employed immigrants has increased by 3.2 million,” Camarota writes. This stark disparity highlights the Biden Administration’s prioritization of foreign workers over American citizens.

Meanwhile, labor participation among working-class American men continues to decline dramatically. For American men in the prime age range of 25 to 54 years old with only a high school diploma, labor participation has plummeted from 95.7 percent in 1960 to a shocking 81.6 percent in 2024. Similarly, for those without a bachelor’s degree, labor participation fell from 95.8 percent in 1960 to a dismal 84.8 percent in 2024. Across all education levels, labor participation for prime-age American men has dropped nearly eight percentage points over 64 years, a clear sign of systemic neglect and failure.

Camarota emphasizes, “The labor force participation rate — the share working or looking for work — has declined dramatically among U.S.-born men since the 1960s, particularly for those without a bachelor’s degree. While labor force participation among these groups has roughly returned to pre-pandemic levels, the rate in 2024 remains at or near historical lows relative to other peaks in the business cycle. This is true even for U.S.-born men who are in the ‘prime’ 25-54 age range for working.” The administration’s disregard for these alarming statistics is both irresponsible and outrageous.

For years, the decline in labor participation among American men has been well-documented, yet the Biden Administration continues to prioritize the influx of newly arrived migrants, who are quickly awarded work permits after being released into the U.S. interior. Since 2023 alone, nearly 300,000 native-born Americans have fallen out of the workforce, while about 637,000 migrants have been added. This blatant disregard for American workers is unacceptable.

Biden’s policies have driven the foreign-born population to unprecedented heights. Today, the foreign-born population stands at a staggering 51.6 million — the largest ever recorded in American history. This means roughly three in 19 people living in the U.S. were born in a foreign country, a statistic that underscores the significant and troubling shift in the American labor market under the current administration. This is a clear indicator of the Biden Administration’s betrayal of American workers and its commitment to prioritizing foreign interests over those of its own citizens.

GUILTY: Hunter Biden Convicted on All Counts

washington-dc-usa-april-1-2024

In a significant blow to the Biden Administration, a federal jury has convicted Hunter Biden on all three federal felony gun charges he faced. This conviction underscores the corruption and lawlessness that many believe epitomize the Biden family.

Hunter Biden’s conviction is historic, marking the first time an immediate family member of a sitting president has been found guilty of a crime during their father’s term in office. The jury, deliberating for less than three hours, returned guilty verdicts on all charges related to a revolver Hunter Biden purchased in October 2018 at a Delaware gun shop.

The charges against Hunter Biden include two counts of lying about his drug use on a federal background check form and one count of possessing a gun while addicted to, or using, illegal drugs. Sentencing is typically set for 120 days following a verdict, and Hunter Biden could face up to 25 years in prison and a fine of $750,000. However, as a first-time offender, it is likely that his sentence will be far less severe, sparking concerns of preferential treatment.

Following the verdict, Hunter Biden expressed gratitude for his family’s support rather than addressing the gravity of his conviction. His attorney, Abbe Lowell, announced that they would continue to “vigorously pursue all the legal challenges available to Hunter,” displaying a defiant attitude despite the jury’s decision.

President Joe Biden, in a statement, reiterated his role as a supportive father rather than addressing the implications of his son’s criminal actions. “As I said last week, I am the President, but I am also a Dad. Jill and I love our son, and we are so proud of the man he is today,” he said, choosing to focus on familial bonds over accountability.

Special Counsel David Weiss emphasized that the case was about the “illegal choices” Hunter Biden made while using drugs, underscoring that no one is above the law. His comments highlighted the severity of Hunter Biden’s actions, contrary to the sympathetic narrative often promoted by the Biden Administration.

Inside the jury room, deliberations revealed an initial split among jurors. However, after thorough discussions of each crime’s elements, they reached a unanimous verdict. Some jurors felt they had no choice but to find Hunter Biden guilty, with one describing the case as a waste of taxpayer dollars—a sentiment that resonates with many critics of the administration.

Despite the serious nature of the crimes, some jurors expressed sympathy for Hunter Biden, focusing on the evidence rather than his lifestyle. This perspective further fuels the narrative of leniency and misplaced compassion often seen in cases involving politically connected individuals.

In a public display of support, President Joe Biden was seen hugging his son Hunter upon arriving at the Delaware Air National Guard Base, mere hours after the guilty verdict was announced. This embrace, captured on video, underscores the President’s unwavering support for his embattled son, even as public trust in his administration continues to erode.

Senate Republicans were quick to react, asserting that the guilty verdict shows the justice system worked, despite persistent claims of selective prosecution. Senators John Thune, Rick Scott, and Josh Hawley emphasized that the case against Hunter Biden followed existing law, in stark contrast to what they see as politically motivated charges against former President Donald Trump. This highlights the perceived double standards within the justice system under the Biden Administration.

A juror later revealed that the jury focused on evidence, not Hunter Biden’s lifestyle, during deliberations. This approach, while legally sound, does little to quell public outrage over the apparent disparity in how justice is administered to those with political connections.

In conclusion, Hunter Biden’s conviction is a stark reminder of the corruption and legal breaches rampant within the Biden family. The President’s continued support for his son, coupled with the leniency of the justice system, only serves to deepen public disillusionment with the current administration.

Israeli Forces Rescue Hostages from Hamas Terrorists in Dramatic Operation

proud-israeli-solider

On Monday, Israeli forces released dramatic video footage showing the daring rescue of four hostages held by Hamas terrorists in Gaza over the weekend. This footage, captured from helmet cameras of Yamam and Shin Bet’s operational units, as well as Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers, showcases the meticulous and courageous efforts in Nuseirat, a refugee camp in the Gaza Strip.

In a simultaneous operation at two locations, Yamam and Shin Bet operatives engaged in combat with Hamas terrorists to rescue the hostages. Noa Argamani, 26, was rescued at one site, while Shlomi Ziv, 41, Andrey Kozlov, 27, and Almog Meir Jan, 22, were freed from another location.

Footage obtained by Fox News Digital shows Yamam officers and Shin Bet operatives storming the location where Ziv, Kozlov, and Jan were held. They are later seen boarding a helicopter, being flown back to Israel to safety.

All four hostages were abducted from a desert rave near the border during Hamas’s brutal and unprovoked assault on Israel on October 7. This rescue operation was part of a broader Israeli air and ground offensive in central Gaza, which health officials claim resulted in the deaths of 274 Palestinians. This comes at a critical juncture in the eight-month conflict as Israel and Hamas weigh a U.S. proposal for a cease-fire and the release of the remaining captives.

Hamas and other militants killed approximately 1,200 people in the October 7 attack and captured around 250 others, including men, women, children, and older adults. Since then, the Hamas-run Health Ministry in Gaza claims nearly 37,000 Palestinians have been killed in Israel’s ground offensive. It is important to note that Hamas does not distinguish between fighters and civilians in its reports.

Israel has contested these figures, emphasizing that its soldiers are specifically targeting Hamas terrorists who deliberately operate within dense urban areas, using civilians as human shields.

More than 100 captives, mostly women and children, were freed in exchange for Palestinians imprisoned by Israel during a weeklong cease-fire in November.

Israeli authorities estimate that Hamas is still holding around 120 hostages, with 43 pronounced dead. The remaining survivors include about 15 women, two children under the age of 5, and two men in their 80s.

This heroic rescue operation underscores the ongoing struggle against Hamas’s brutal tactics and the lengths to which Israeli forces will go to protect and rescue their citizens.

Vice President Kamala Harris mourned the death of the Hamas members killed in the raid.
